Croatia multi sport holiday, hike, bike and kayak
Description of Croatia multi sport holiday, hike, bike and kayak
Croatia’s Adriatic coastline and islands form some of the most beautiful landscapes in Europe. This eight-day small group tour, that covers around 130km by hiking, mountain biking and kayaking, is a fantastic way to discover this region, and ideally suited for active travellers. It operates between May and September, when you can expect the best of the Croatian weather, and if you’re of reasonable fitness with an adventurous spirit, the itinerary will prove immensely enticing.
You’ll hop from island to island by ferry, your group accompanied by a tour leader there to ensure all connections are met and that all the necessary equipment is ready. Bursts of activity, such as kayaking to the island of Šipan and then mountain biking around it, are interspersed with lazy picnic lunches and the opportunity for snorkeling in the sea.
In Mljet National Park, one of the oldest marine sanctuaries in Europe, you will spend a few days cycling and hiking, staying overnight in villages, as the island’s rich cultural and natural heritage unfolds before you. On Vis, an early morning start sees you tackle the summit of Vidova Gora, the highest peak on the Adriatic Islands. And on Bisevo, a relaxed boat cruise takes you out to explore the local landmark of Modra Spilja, a ‘Blue Grotto’ sea cave.
If you want a holiday that is really going to clear the cobwebs and loosen your muscles up, this Croatia small group tour will do the trick and more.
