Croatian Travel Guide

Croatia with its diverse nature – thousands of islands scattered across the Adriatic Sea, mountains as well as lakes and rivers is a unique destination for adventurous travellers.
You can take a sporty, relaxing holiday to free your mind and activate your body. Choose the canoe - safari, mountain biking, kayaking, rafting, riding orcanyoning - that will definitely inspire you and your friends. Be different, be natural, be yourself. Be an adventurer!
Usually you can design your Croatia adventure in a way that
with very little travelling you can encompass as many different activities as possible. For instance, starting with an easy canoe expedition, then head out into the countryside to explore traditional villages by bike. Returning to the river to try your hand kayaking and the following day you can raft down the wild mountain rivers.
Croatia is perfectly suited for walkers with numerous interesting walking paths. The most beautiful ones are probably those in the National Parks, such as the Plitvice Lakes and on the islands of Brijuni and Mljet.
Those who are interested in mountain climbing may like to head to Mount Biokovo (above Makarska) and the Velebit mountains (northern Dalmatia).
There is the chance to see a bit of Croatia's long history as you visit the countryside with many fortresses, especially in Zagorje.
You can participate in one of the many organised cycling holidays in Istria, Southern Dalmatia and the Makarska Riviera. After a morning spent cycling, you can decide whether to cycle again in the afternoon, or spend it cruising aboard the boat.
Being at seaside, you can decide to explore some of the most attractive diving locations in the Adriatic, its many underwater cliff faces and reefs, caves and the wrecks of ships and aeroplanes. The clarity of the turquoise waters, the beauty of the depths, the variety of marine life and the fascinating shipwrecks hidden at the bottom of the sea, are all part of its appeal.
