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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Croatia is a land of fishing opportunities but fishermen are drawn to Croatia`s waters not only in search of the next big catch - they also come to admire, explore and enjoy the beauty of the unspoilt nature and rich Croatian culture, cuisine and wines.
