This SUP Croatia adventure holiday is all about the Croatian unspoiled nature and practicing your paddle boarding technique. Travel through stunning scenery and landscape of 5 Croatian National Parks, not only by foot but with a paddle on your SUP board! You will start your tour in Istria, the green peninsula filled with spectacular forests, verdant valleys, rustic villas and rich history, and continue through Croatia’s inland mountain region down to the Adriatic coast.

The accommodation is chosen carefully to reflect local feel close to the key destinations. We will stay in family run guesthouses and hotels on river banks or close to the sea side in historical Porec, charming Korana Village, picturesque Skradin area and UNESCO protected Historic City of Trogir. Experienced local guides will avoid overcrowded destinations ensuring you get the most authentic and insightful experience. We guarantee fun, active and wet SUP holiday in Croatia where you will leave with nothing but amazing memories and some sore abs!
