Calling all lovers of the outdoors, this one’s for you. Did you know Croatia is so rich in natural wonders, you’re able to spend eight days exploring them? From Dubrovnik to Zagreb, you’ll hit Croatia’s national parks, nature parks, rivers, waterfalls, caves and mountains. You’ll swim, sail, hike and embrace the vibrant history surrounding you along the way. And don’t worry, there will even be a fair bit of eating, drinking, and relaxing, too. So, what do you say?
The suggested itinerary starts at 3,500 EUR per person.
The final price of this custom tour depends on your group size, dates, final route and preferred level of comfort.
Once you’ve arrived at your hotel, we suggest you don’t stay put for too long. Use the afternoon to explore the cracks and crevices of Dubrovnik’s Old Town, which is abounding in history, ancient architecture, and old tales. Embrace the salty air, sink into the shimmering sea, and simply be.
Once the ferry arrives at the National Park Mljet, which is also the oldest marine protected area in the Mediterranean, you’ll want to get straight to exploring. Lucky for you, our devoted guide knows just where to take you.
Spreading across almost 5400 hectares, National Park Mljet makes up nearly one-third of the island itself. From lagoons to salt lakes, a Benedictine monastery circa 1177 to the unrivaled flora and fauna surrounding you, your constant amazement of such a magical place will only be enhanced when you sit down for lunch.
Once the cave exploration ends, our journey to Krka resumes – and onwards we go to the most prized waterfalls of Dalmatia.
Here, we will not only gawk at the seven waterfalls, one of which you can swim under – or what we consider more of a ‘baptism’ – but we will immerse ourselves in the rich and varied plant and animal life, visit the Visovac Monastery founded during the reign of Louis I of Hungary, and imbibe in the traditional delicacies of the area before relaxing at the hotel in Zadar.
The day wouldn’t be complete without a dip in the salt Lake Mir and a tour through of Telašćica, a nature park surrounded by 13 islands and islets, and 6 islets inside the bay itself. Telašćica was declared a nature park in 1988.
Because your adventures will work up an appetite, lunch will be enjoyed at a picture-perfect waterfront restaurant.
But that’s not all.
Consumed by that fresh outdoors feeling, our stunning landscapes will be accompanied by a trip to the underground – or what is better known as the ‘Manita peć’ cave. After a 30-minute guided tour, lunch will be served on the terrace of a charming village house, and the day will end with the serenity of stand up paddleboarding on the Zrmanja river.
An established guide will lead us through the grandiose parts, taking us to both the Upper and Lower lakes to ensure the ‘WOW’ factor hits us at full speed. There are 16 crystalline and cascading lakes to admire, after all.
Part of UNESCO’s World Heritage, Plitvice Lakes will give you an ‘out of this world’ experience in nature, and will also be a big check off your bucket list.
You’ll have just enough time to marvel at Mother Nature before we take off to Pula for a late afternoon arrival.
In order to fully clinch each piece of this experience, we’ll take a panoramic sail from the town of Premantura and spend the day deep down in the southernmost point of Istria, underneath a rocky coastline in one of the region’s most popular swimming spots.
Because we value your voice, you’ll get to choose between several adrenaline activities, from cliff jumping to windsurfing, paddle boarding, or scuba diving. Or you can take a deep dive into the delightful sea, rent a bike, or take your time to relax with a drink at the Safari bar.
Led by a trusted guide, we’ll take off from the hotel to explore the monumental Medvednica mountain, which is actually a nature park itself!
