This holiday is a well balanced mixture of activity, nature and culture, perfect for families with children as well as couples and individual travellers.

The first half of this tour is based in the small, picturesque town of Skradin. Skradin is famous for its vicinity to numerous attractive locations such as the Krka River National Park, Velebit Nature Park, and the Sibenik archipelago. Each day’s activity takes us on an adventure in one of those locations where you can enjoy an active holiday of sea kayaking, river kayaking, cycling, walking, and sightseeing. With its laid-back atmosphere, authentic architecture, and preserved stone core Skradin is in itself an attractive location to discover and enjoy in your free time.

In the second part of this tour, we remain active while having plenty of time for leisure and the joys of the sea, sun, and sailing. Characterized by peacefulness and incredible beauty the Sibenik archipelago and the Kornati National Park are among the most popular sailing destinations in Croatia. If you like being active, enjoy kayaking to hidden beaches and coves, or just stick by the boat snorkeling, SUP, and swimming. Keep an eye out for friendly dolphins, tuna, and sea turtles which occasionally escort us while we sail. In the evenings we dock or anchor in quiet bays where we visit traditional taverns with exquisite local food.
