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.

Croatia holiday, activity week
An amazing experience and it has given us an incentive to consider how we become fitter, eat more vegetarian dishes and how invigorating it is to try new things. Never too late to try! (more)Veronica Thompson
Fabulous if you're into activity holidays that are not too crowded. (more)Cordelia Howitt
A excellent week - Craig and Xania work extremely hard to give their guests a memorable holiday. (more)Graeme Everard
From £820 - £940 excluding flights
Watersports activity holiday in Croatia
If you enjoy being outdoors and in water then this is the holiday for you. (more)Emma Brehony
It was simply the best holiday I have ever been on. I used to think the city was the best place in the world. My world was turned upside down. (more)Julie Stolyarchuk
Amazing! The perfect combination of activities and challenges in pristine settings. Our guides, Nikola and Mario are passionate, knowledgeable guys who spoke openly and honestly. I not only enjoyed the activities, but loved learning more about Croatia. (more)maria falgoust

Croatia multi sport tour
There were many great moments. Kayaking in the Adriatic was fantastic. Dubrovnik is incredible. The national parks Krka and Plitvice were spectacular. (more)Stan Hills
Over the top fantastic. (more)Stan Hills
Most memorable would definitely be the stories that our guide Mica told of his life in the country and how things changed due to the 'homeland' wars. (more)Christine Merrall
From €1240 - €1340 excluding flights
Sea kayaking holiday in Croatia
Absolutely fantastic. Had an amazing time and started planning the next on the way home. (more)Hayley Cripps
It supported local people. All lunches were arranged in local restaurants, group tour to a local small farm where a lady cooked an amazing meal with wine and local brandies, all enjoyed on her porch. Very traditional food made by a local. (more)Aly Thomson
We all liked being in smaller guest houses run by local people and finding out how they make a living the rest of the year. These were people who love their jobs rather than people who just work for money and that glimpse of their lifestyle was a very special part of the holiday. (more)Suse Coon
From €715 - €750 excluding flights
Croatia sea kayaking holidays
Great, relaxing holiday with kayaking everyday but also time off to explore the islands, swim or relax. Brilliant, fun guides who really looked after everyone in the group. Amazing way to see a bit of Croatia. (more)Sarah Dobson
Relax and have fun, don't worry about time or the weather or anything else, turn off laptops, ipads, phones, etc., and just go with what each day brings. (more)Colette Langlois
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
From €485 excluding flights
Croatia activity holiday for families with teenagers
Go for it! (more)Clare Murray
The best thing for us was when our teenage daughter, an only child, said it was the best holiday ever and she didn't want to leave. (more)Caryn Noad
It was a fantastic holiday, extremely well organised, great fun, really active, gave us loads to talk and laugh about. The children are already planning next year's trip. We have been raving about it to all our friends. (more)Cιline Dignan
From £799 excluding flights
Sailing in Croatia
The highlight of our month in Europe. Worth every cent, or should I say Kuna. 10+/10 (more)Ingrid Sloan
Excellent. Would definitely recommend it. Loved the small villages, cycling and trying the SUP. The catamaran and crew were fantastic. (more)Monique Linder
The most memorable part of the holiday - Sitting on the boat in the sun, under sail, with no noise other than the waves! (more)Sonia Reynolds
From €620 - €790 excluding flights
Croatia activity holiday, Dubrovnik region
Best holiday in years, perfect location, exciting activities, knowledgeable guide. (more)Lisa Fogden
It was a great holiday. The idea of a few days in a city (Dubrovnik) and then a few days out on the islands is a great combination. (more)Rob McCormick
Very very good. Easy to set up and arange. As a small company they could be responsive to your needs. A lovely part of the world. (more)Joy Curran
From €815 - €895 excluding flights
Self guided sea kayaking in Croatia
Most memorable was getting out on the sea and being able to travel at your own pace. The Islands are amazing and Miljet is a must see place, we loved it. (more)Chivers Libby
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
From €560 excluding flights
Family sea kayaking holiday in Croatia
Croatia was jolly good value, beautiful and friendly. (more)Bridget Smith
It was right balance of activities and doing our own thing. I would definitely recommend and will be back. (more)Peter Wightman
We loved loved loved the kayaking which was pitched at just the right level for us with 2 kids, aged 11 years and 8 years but we all agree that the absolute highlight was swimming in the green cave, absolutely unforgettable. (more)Trish Horgan
From €650 - €750 excluding flights
Kayaking weekend in Croatia
Best bit: Visiting an isolated farmhouse for a home-grown dinner. (more)Sally Spence
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
From €390 excluding flights
Water multi sport holiday in Croatia
Outstanding! Kayaking on the sea and visiting the fortress. Absolutely fantastic day, brilliant way to kick off the trip and get to know some people. (more)Clayton Black

Brac Island family activity holiday, Croatia
Jumping into the freezing source water after a bike ride in intense heat was an amazing feeling...Excellent! We hope to come again and do it all over! (more)Andrea Freely
The most memorable parts were the people, the food, the island! We felt at home with the staff of the wonderful Illyrian Resort...This is a fantastic family owned business that provides the nicest and most soothing atmosphere to relax and enjoy with your family. (more)Fernando Colchero
From £799 excluding flights
Istria multisport holiday in Croatia
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 - €790 excluding flights
Croatian Islands yacht cruise
Memorable parts? Hard to say, so many moments. I guess top of the list would be swimming in the sea, off the back of the boat. I loved both Split and Dubrovnik, but also the lovely islands between them, especially Mljet national park. Tips? Learn some Croatian words, and how to pronounce them. This is much appreciated. Local benefits? Yes, there were a few trips to local restaurants and parks. Every day, the boat seemed to be stocked by local people. Hard to say if it reduced... (more)Eileen Silcock
From £945 - £1095 excluding flights
Croatia holiday, Dubrovnik and the Dalmatian Coast
Good introduction to Croatia, made all the better, in our case, by an excellent 'tour leader'. (more)Christopher Hawker
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
From £1019 - £1149 including UK 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 €710 - €790 excluding flights
Sea kayaking in Croatia
Kayaking in beautiful landscapes with clear blue seas (more)Jules Dawkins
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
From €620 - €790 excluding 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 £1198 - £1505 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 - €790 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 - €780 excluding flights
Vis Island activity holiday Croatia
Memorable parts? It is difficult to say what the most memorable part of our holiday was because it was so full of variety, with so many great but very different memories. Kayaking to small islands and into a stunning cave, pierced by a single beam of sunlight. Beautiful beaches and coves, snorkelling in crystal clear water. Relaxing and hanging out in the old town. Hiking over hills and delving into a nuclear fallout shelter! And fabulous food! Tips? Matko and his team are very... (more)Mathew Blumler
From €875 - €1050 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 €1050 - €1300 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 €750 excluding flights
