National parks and cities

We’re taking you on an adventure that’s bursting with culture and nature, into the crowded cities filled with laughter of happy and satisfied travelers and we’re ending this unique trip by seeking peace and quiet in the beauty of Croatian lakes, islands and the mesmerizing Adriatic Sea.

This trip offers you insight into the Croatian contrast of continental living vs. seaside chill. Your guide will show you places you couldn’t find on your own, you will meet interesting people and get to know a little about the Croatian way of life. We have many surprises stored for you!

Our first stop is Zagreb, the capital. Zagreb, an old charmer, will sweep you of your feet. It offers something for everyone, interesting museums, cool little cafes where you will get to know the Croatian culture of coffee drinking, bikers passing down tram trails, flower market in the main square, canon ball marking the noon and so much more! We’ll have a coffee at the main square, talk about the history of this lovely city and learn the way Croatians chill while watching the world goes by ;)

Just two hours from Zagreb, Heaven on Earth! National Park Plitvice, settled between mountain massive, with 16 lakes filled with crystal blue-green water, connected with cascades and waterfalls. After chaotic Zagreb, we will become one with the nature. Explore the lakes , admire the amazing waterfalls, and take some amazing photos from our boat ride. In 1949, UNESCO declared Plitvice lakes as World Heritage, amongst first sights to be declared in the world. . In surrounding of Plitvice is also one small water mill village that we will visit as well. After a long walk, we will satisfy our hunger with freshly prepared trout in a traditional restaurant. Zen and chill all day long.

Zrmanja River, one of the most beautiful in Europe, offers 14.5km long rafting route! Even though it seems as an easy task, do not be fooled, because the end of the route is spiced up with numerous waterfalls, cascades and rapids. Prepare to get wet, with a must-have accessories, smile and determination to make it to the end!

Town Zadar, urban center of Central Dalmatia, with rich cultural heritage: historical monuments, churches and culture monuments of all construction styles. With just an easy stroll down the historic city center, you will see all these historical monuments. After the overwhelming city walk, we will find a place to chill on the riva as we listen to the unique melody produced by the first sea organs in the world.

Kornati archipelago is consisted of 150 islands, small and big ones. This is an island paradise. Have an insight into the untouched nature of sea cliffs reaching up to 80m, dry walls on every island, small old churches and the way people used to live here hundreds of years ago. Take a swim in crystal clear waters of Lojena beach, carved into the land with a breath-taking viewpoint of the whole beach. Sunsets you’ll see here will surely be the ones you’ll remember long after your visit to Croatia. 

So far we’ve seen cities, waterfalls, islands, the sea… But Croatia has even more to offer! It’s time for some mountain air, forest vibe and mountain walk paths! National Park Paklenica is a nature’s gift to Croatia! With its amazing forest life, hiking paths and the view of the sea it offers, it’s something we can’t miss on this trip! Climb its 1757 meters high peak and take a deep breath, as it is one of the best ones you’ll ever take! 

Our tour of National park Krka starts from the waterfall Skradiniski buk, one of the most beautiful in the entire park. Island Visovac is a tiny island in the Krka River. In 1445 Franciscan monastery was built here and it stands still even today, as does the little charming church. We will visit the monastery and feel the peace and energy this little island has to offer. To spice this tour up, we’ll end it with a chain of 12 waterfalls, biggest one being 22.5m high and named Roški Slap

Still under the impression of waterfall sounds and whole Krka canyon experience, we continue our trip to the city of Šibenik. Šibenik is settled in the mouth of river Krka under the fort of St. Mihovil which arises above the city. After we explore the historical city centre, we will get lost in the narrow stone streets in the search for the best food Dalmatian konoba can offer. But slowly, Dalmatians will say, and we will be sure to follow their advice. 

The most beautiful girls, the best cuisine, the most beautiful sea! That’s how inhabitants of Split describe their hometown. And they are right! Historical center of Split - Diocletians palace is under the UNESCO register. Palace fused with the city and the every day’s rhythm of its inhabitants. Take just a few steps down streets of Split and you will get to experience street entertainers or “klapa” singing traditional songs. Join them, dance and sing with them to experience Dalmatia as it really is!

Take a trip with us down history lane, touch and explore the ancient architecture surrounding you and let yourself feel the vibe this city offers!  

The noise of different vessels that just wait to float into the sea, people, suitcases, bags… the patchwork of morning madness is here! Through the morning crowds, while it is still not too hot, we are departing for island Hvar. Hvar, island loved among celebrities. Sunshine paradise, crowded with tourists, great clubs, summer music and great atmosphere! This Croatian jewel has a lot to offer, amazing beaches, old historical town, beautiful cathedral, crystal blue sea and maybe a picture with Beyonce or Jay – Z, who knows! Take a stroll down city center with us, and then award yourself with a tasty coffee in the shade of some of the many chic bars Hvar has to offer.

Adrenalin junkies, we haven’t forgotten about you either! For all of you out there willing to have some adrenalin fun, there’s a Zip-line adventure near Omiš! Zip-line is based over Cetina River, 150m high, with 8 steel spirals, taking you through air above the Cetina River, with breathtaking view of its landscape! For those willing to get to know the river, there’s also canoeing. Explore the waterfalls, caves, and take a swim in cold river waters. After the adventure, we will explore the rich pirate history of Omiš, town carved into the Cetina River canyon.

Split is the biggest town on Adriatic coastline. Not only the biggest, but also the most beautiful, the best, not only in Croatia, but in the whole world – according to inhabitants of Split. And we’ll make sure they’re right! It has everything: enviable architectural beauty, monuments dating from middle ages all to the modern era. The fish market and bazaar in center of the town between monuments give special charm to the city, just like the port and promenade that are always crowded with people. Something is always going on in Split – festivals, modern stores, old retro shops, bars, restaurants… Be prepared, somebody will try to joke with you, to tell you a story, hug you, sing to you or just move aside so you could pass, and you couldn’t resist to become a part of it! This synergy is amazing and we are all a part of it!

Early in the morning we are departing for Hvar. Why the worldwide celebrities are coming to Hvar and why the best parties are placed here?

For those who want different way of fun we can arrange canyoning. Great combination of adventure and fun, swimming, jumping, diving in Cetina River. After we fill our organism with adrenaline, we’re ready for a bit more relaxing afternoon. It’s time to visit city of Omiš. Omiš has rich pirate history dating since 12 century, which is still visible on city’s monuments and fortress above the city. City of Omiš is literally cut in mouth of the Cetina River, belt with the huge natural cliffs and it’s definitely one of the places on Adriatic coast worth visiting.
