Croatia adventure holidays

Croatia adventure holidays

Croatia is an outdoorsy paradise all year round. With a water playground of 1200 islands, kayaking is to Croatia what horseriding is to the Wild West. A Croatia adventure holiday is never complete without a hike or a cycle in one of its eight national parks, or rafting down one of its rivers. And if you can’t swim, use Croatia as your best incentive to learn.

Fantastic - looking forward to booking a trip for next year with the same company in a different part of Croatia. Felt very well looked after, and though it was only a short four day kayaking break, felt like a lot was packed into it. (more)kathyan kelly

We enjoyed the kayaking because we were able to get away from the throng of tourists and it was an ideal holiday for the 3 active teenagers we had with us but easy enough for the adults. (more)Louise Solomon
The sea kayaking and snorkelling on Lopud island was great fun. It got quite interesting in terms of high waves on the way back which was a welcomed challenge. (more)Mariana Heinrich

Kayaking weekend in Croatia
First rate, the islands were idyllic, kayaking superb with the team making you feel so welcome. Top holiday. (more)susan bein
The most memorable part was when the guides took our group to a small local farm for an all inclusive 4 course meal where we had abundant home cooked food and drink, all the meat came from the farm and the wine was also made by the family on the farm. It was fantastic! (more)Anna Halter
The most memorable part was the colour of the water! The sea was so clear, you could see to the bottom quite easily. It was especially impressive when we went cave swimming. (more)James Smith

From €620 - €710 excluding flights
Croatia activity holiday, Gorski Kotar region
Memorable parts? Views from the mountains across to the Adriatic coast, walking in the Una River National Park in Bosnia, drinking Turkish coffee made on a small fire in the mountains, swimming in the icy clear green water of a small river and the majestic beauty of the Plitvice Lakes. Tips? Make sure you have strong supportive footwear-as advised on booking, a lightweight day sac and lightweight kagoule Local benefits? We spent 3 nights staying in rooms in the homes of local... (more)Jenny Lunn
From €620 - €710 excluding flights
Sea kayaking in Croatia
The most memorable or exciting part of your holiday? Kayaking from Lopud to Sunj on day three of the holiday, the wind got up a bit and it was exciting riding through the waves. (more)Roddy MacLeod
I loved almost everything! We had booked the sea-kayaking trip and were upgraded to the catamaran sailing trip for 5 of the 7 days, which was fantastic! I enjoyed seeing the different islands while sailing, biking and kayaking, as well as all the meals the guides organised for us at local people's houses. (more)Astryd Letrud
Exciting: Kayaking in beautiful crystal clear waters and seeing the islands from a whole different perspective. Memorable: enjoying fantastic home-cooked food every night with a friendly international group. (more)Mandy Hetherton
From €620 - €790 excluding flights
Croatia river kayaking holiday
The highlight was the River Zrmanja kayak tour. Good, great location, you could virtually swim from the hotel. (more)Lois Simes
All of it was memorable! I guess the day we went on the Zrmanja and Krupa Rivers, - it was simply beautiful. Kayaking down rapids and swimming under waterfalls that we would have only got to because we were taken on the day. (more)Tim and Rachel Atkins
From €620 - €710 excluding flights
Croatia holiday, Dubrovnik and the Dalmation Coast
Most memorable or exciting part of your holiday? Islands of Mljet (nature park) and island of Korcula. Nice walks, great food and wine. (more)Karin Herveus
What was the most memorable part of your holiday? Just getting a glimpse of the Croatian coast with its scenery and history! (more)Diane Baker
Excellent trip - would recommend it to others. (more)Ann Williamson
From £1049 - £1099 including UK flights
Balkan adventure holiday
The train ride from Sarajevo to Mostar was the most memorable part. (more)Kwan Lee
I loved the whole holiday but the people on the holiday were so great that they will remain in my memory for a long time. Sarajevo was perhaps the place I liked best for many reasons. Budva was beautiful. (more)Katie Coates
The most memorable was the Montenegrin coastline (more)Navinder Shergill
From £1295 - £1580 excluding flights
Multi activity holiday in Croatia
Fantastic! Beautiful country, very peaceful and relaxed but adventurous. Our guides were excellent, informative and relaxed. The whole experience was great. We really enjoyed the activities everyday - rafting, especially - it was beautiful and thrilling! We also enjoyed that we had plenty of downtime during the evening, to relax and soak up the village life. (more)Emma Buckland
Wonderful!...We stayed in a rural hotel and so hope that this provided local jobs in this lovely location, soon to be a conservation area (more)Mary Purton
5 Star. Croatia was wonderful and the tour guides really looked after us.... The best bit? The walk to and climb up Gromavaca (1,675m). I think it is the highest peak I have climbed and the view from the top fantastic. To the west was the Adriatic, with its parched rugged coastline, to the north, south and east back into Croatia with the white limestone mountains and dark green forests. (more)Michael Hasnip
From €620 - €710 excluding flights
Croatia multi activity holiday
The most memorable part of the holiday was Kayaking to Lokrum and spending time in the beautiful walled city and staying in a beautiful guest house. (more)Kate Vernon-Rees
This was an excellent holiday. The balance of activity, culture and free time / relaxation was perfect for us. We have an active 9 year old with good stamina and she loved it, others as young as this might struggle. (more)Deborah Stapleton
This is the most enjoyable and relaxing family holiday we have had in a while. Croatia is stunningly beautiful. (more)Clare Pallett
From €670 excluding flights
Island hopping holiday in Croatia
Memorable parts? A mix of good memories. Dubrovnik was stunning but quite touristy. But Korcula was so peaceful and tranquil. The local seafood was amazing and the clarity of the seawater was beautiful. All the different excursions were great fun for different reasons. Tips? It is quiet and quite remote so if you are looking for peace and calm away from it all; this is the place. Local benefits? I assume tourism is important for the locals so yes; I guess they benefitted. Overall... (more)Paul Crowther
From €700 - €840 excluding flights
Croatia sea kayaking holiday, islands & parks
Brilliant. Our guide Radovan was great - laid back, fun, skilful, knowledgeable and hard working: unlike on UK group kayak trips I've been on, we hardly ever had to portage our own kayaks; he moved them all to and fro at the end of the days (towing, bussing, ferrying them) when we needed to start somewhere new the next day. We hardly ever had to carry our own bags either which was luxurious for this kind of holiday! (more)Nicola Robinson
Besides the great nature, people from Sipan and Miljet are amazing. Specially at the guest house we stayed at Suduradj. (more)Manoela Penna
The most memorable part of the holiday were the local people, in particular the family with whom we stayed on Sipan. (more)Peter Hodgetts
From €790 excluding flights
