Rafting on una river

Rafting down Croatian rivers is a wonderful way to experience the unspoiled interior of the country. The coastal rivers are flanked by green banks and karstic canyons, while lush forests and mountains border the interior rivers. The grade of difficulty for most rivers in Croatia is up to 3.

Canoeing Plitvice Lakes Area

Maybe you will come to Croatia seeking paradise, but as you kayak and canoe on travertine waterfalls interspersed with calm, crystal water, you'll find a whole lot more… These rivers flow between hills and forests in uninhabited areas. Green river banks, full of flowers, birds and curious little mammals await for you to discover them.

Sea Kayak Camping

The Adriatic sea is warm and clear, with clean water and insignificant tides. Strong currents are rare, big waves as well. Nasty winds are rare and predictable. With over a 1000 islands, sea kayaking in Croatia is fantastic.

Hiking Risnjak National Park

The diversity of landscapes makes Croatia a magnificent place for all hiking, walking and trekking enthousiasts. Conquer the most beautiful peaks and explore fascinating mountain ranges, canyons, forests and countryside paths. Hauntingly rugged beauty awaits, don't miss it.

Cycling in Croatia

A well-paced bike tour is a great way to experience Croatia much more closely than from a vehicle. Travel slowly and you will enjoy more. Explore nature parks, river valleys, forests and islands while feeling the smell of flowers, hearing the birds singing and tasting fruit that grows by the road.

Sailing Trough Dalmatia

Relax in the sun or get involved on a sailing catamaran as gentle winds take you among the wonderful Croatian islands, their peaceful and romantic beaches, caves, cliffs and blue sea. They are incredibly rich in natural and cultural heritage and provide excellent setting for various activities – sailing, kayaking, diving, hiking, biking.
