Description of Active holiday in Croatia for families with older children
Sometimes the best way to bond to shake up the everyday routine: jump into the sea together or go full pelt down a gorge in an inflatable raft.
This well-designed active holiday in Croatia for families with teenagers is perfect if you’ve got older children. It includes five full-on activity days, interspersed with free days where you can decide whether it’s sightseeing, more adventure, or beach relaxation on the menu.
This local operator has been designing family holidays in the area for over a decade, and you can take advantage of their expertise for everything from the most secluded swim spots to the best pizza place. Activities include an exciting programme of swimming and snorkelling, sea kayaking and rafting.
You’ll be based on the Trogir Peninsula in Croatia, near the village of Seget Donji. The Trogir Riviera is a stretch of pretty Croatian coastline with views out towards the islands. The coastline is dotted with caves and beaches and has the UNESCO-listed town of Trogir in its centre. The sparkling Adriatic, with its inviting clear waters, is never far away.
No summer holiday here is complete without spending time in the water. A swim is always high on the agenda on this trip, whether you’re jumping in after a speedboat tour, donning a snorkel, or popping in from your kayak.
Once you venture inland you’ll discover Krka National Park, with its famous set of wide waterfalls, and the River Cetina, which winds through the Croatian countryside and is best explored on an exciting rafting trip. You might encounter a few white-water rapids on the way down, luckily, the reward for your hard paddle is a bankside BBQ.
There are plenty of cultural highlights on the Dalmatian coast. The coastal city of Sibenik has two UNESCO listings – for its cathedral and for its fort. Your guided tour of Split doesn’t just stop at the historic sights. Your local guide will also show you what it’s like for people living there now.
You’ll be going with a group of like-minded families, but you’ll stay in your own apartment with a lounge and terrace or balcony, so everyone – especially teenagers – get that all important peace and privacy.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?
Island hopping by speedboat between islands, then frequently cooling off, swimming from the boat. Sightseeing in Trogir and Sibenik. Rafting also very good.

Be prepared for very hot weather.

It benefited local people because the tour operator was local, arranging everything via local people, therefore it was the locals who received income rather than a huge corporate group. Island hopping.

Excellent, relaxing holiday with guides giving insight into history and culture, also plenty of free time to go exploring and do your own thing.
