Spend eight days hiking, cycling and kayaking in the jewel of the Adriatic Sea with this Croatia multisport holiday.
Croatia is a melting pot of history and culture; a dreamy blend of heritage, cuisine and tradition that can be seen in its architecture and lifestyle. Our trip takes us through the best of this Mediterranean treasure in an action-packed, adventure-filled itinerary unlike any other.
Our exploration starts with inland hiking and biking in Plitvice National Park, home to spectacular emerald pools and exquisite waterfalls. Continuing south, we paddle through the narrow canyons of two beautiful rivers: Zrmanja and Krupa. Easy rapids and quiet pools make this journey a highlight. Hike in primeval forests in Krka National Park and traverse the mountain ridgelines of Paklenica. Head to Croatia’s extraordinary island-speckled coastline for a day of kayaking around car-free Zlarin Island, where we bask in the sun and swim in the clear azure waters. Our journey ends in the cobblestone streets of Trogir for one last day in beautiful Croatia – that is, unless you decide to extend your trip.
