Responsible tourism: Croatia family holiday, for younger families


Many of the activities on this Dugi Otok holiday take place in the coastal setting of Southwest Croatia. We do everything that we can to ensure that this setting is left unspoilt.

Client families are booked to travel in groups – whether on the ferry from Zadar to Dugi Otok and the boat trip around Kornati National Park, or when being transferred between Hotel Maxim or Mirta and the beaches on the itinerary. This reduced vehicle use minimizes overall pollution to the Adriatic environment. The same can be said of flights from London to Zadar: they are direct, and we put many groups on each one.

Younger children may come across as difficult to control and more likely to cause environmental damage to beaches and park territory. Our guides make sure that families are made fully aware of the importance of places like Veli Rat Beach or Telašcica Nature Park; moreover, responsible parents on our holidays ensure that children are well-behaved and respect the destinations they visit.


This Dugi Otok holiday provides local guides and instructors the chance to showcase their family-engaging skills and practices, such as when sea kayaking or trekking through Telašcica Nature Park. It supports specialized local shops, such as the artisan ice cream producers in Zadar. It also widens knowledge of Croatia’s coastal beauty in the international community.

While it is common to look at how a holiday benefits the destination community, the immense advantage of this trip to the four to eight-year-old community should not be ignored. These years are a period of immense physical and mental growth, and this holiday helps in augmenting both. For example, swimming in the shallow waters by Sakarun Beach or kayaking near Veli Rat will introduce children to new active experiences, boosting their confidence of the outdoors. Likewise, taking them around the streets of Zadar and immersing them in new sights and smells will boost their cultural sensitivity.
