Day 1: Split and Welcome Dinner


Welcome to the city of Split, a 1700-year-old city that’s splitting at the seams with culture, and will be our home for the first three nights of the tour. This UNESCO location is stunning with landmarks like The Diocletian’s Palace, Peristil and St. Doimus’s Cathedral. We recommend that you arrive early so you can enjoy the seemingly endless opportunities to experience unique architecture, art, music, and recreation. Split is surrounded by the lush Marjan park forest, known to many as the lungs of the city. Tonight we will enjoy a welcome dinner and get to know our travel mates for the next 11 days.


Day 2: Zip-lining in Omis


After breakfast and a relaxing morning, we will transfer to Omis for hours of the most beautiful zip-lining in the country, if not the world. We will be flying high above the canyon and river, for an amazing bird’s eye view. After the adrenaline has worn off, we will return to Split, then have time to freshen up before enjoying an evening guided tour of Split’s Old Town, followed by dinner.


Day 3: Hiking and Lunch in Poljicka Republika 


Following breakfast, we’ll take off for a moderate hiking adventure. A 40-minute drive will take us to border villages that once divided the Turkish and Venetian empires. Our ancient hiking path was populated by a thriving autonomous community in the Middle Ages. The trail winds through nature and sparsely populated hamlets that once served people, trade, transport, outlaws, and livestock. At the end of our trail lies a small abandoned village where we will find a home restored by a local family. We’ll enjoy traditional cooking for lunch and then make our way back to Split!


Day 4: Krka National Park – Hiking


Say goodbye to Split, as today we will travel further up the coast to Krka National Park. Krka National Park is home to the 22nd longest river in Croatia, the Krka River. The Krka River has seven waterfalls with a total drop in altitude of 242 meters. We’ll be taking a trail that passes the Roski slap while we make our way to the Skradinski Buk, the biggest waterfall of the seven! We will then conclude the day’s adventures by heading to Sibenik where will enjoy dinner with a view of the spectacular St. James Cathedral, which has been on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 2000.


Day 5: Kornati National Park – Snorkeling


After breakfast, we prepare for a day of beauty and speed in Kornati National Park. Bring your suit today for some amazing snorkeling as we head out on an unforgettable cruise through a breathtaking archipelago of 89 uninhabited islands, islet and reefs. We will cruise beneath high vertical cliffs, some that tower 80 meters above the sea. We’ll experience a truly extraordinary landscape with numerous bays of clear water. It is not uncommon to see gulls gliding on the wind, sea turtles or a pod of playful dolphins. We will have lunch at a small restaurant, dining on freshly caught seafood, prepared traditionally.


Day 6: Zadar and Rafting the Zrmanja River


Today we move our adventure North. We will say goodbye to Sibenik and take an hour drive to the Zrmanja River for a rafting (or kayaking) adventure. Since the Zrmanja River is tame and safe, we will have the opportunity to take in the spectacular scenery. Because of its clear waters, canyon scenery, and majestic waterfalls, Zrmanja is considered one of the most beautiful rivers in the world. Don’t be surprised to find a variety of fish and birds. The river trip will take about 4 hours and then we will have lunch in a traditional agro-tourism setting.

After lunch, we will head to Zadar, a city with a rich culture and history spanning over 3,000 years. Here we will have the opportunity to visit the ancient Roman Forum, visit medieval churches, or visit interesting museums in the historic old town.


Day 7: Paklenica National Park – Hiking – All-Terrain Vehicles


Today we depart Zadar in all-terrain vehicles and head up to the Veliko Rujno plateau. This will be a 60-minute drive including periodic breaks to gaze out at the breathtaking sights of the Zadar archipelago and hinterland. Then we hike through Veliko and Malo Rujno. Along the way we will see unique summer homes, both old and new, revealing the passage of time and the Our Lady of Assumptions Church, greatly admired by the locals. We will have a 2-hour walk uphill as we continue our hike towards Paklenica National Park which will bring us to Strazbenica, one of the most beautiful viewpoints of Paklenica Pinus Nigra. Lunch will be served in a mountain hut, and then it is time for the downhill journey, a lovely 2.5-hour hike.

Before heading to Velika Paklenica Gorge, we’ll take a break for refreshments, then hike along Velika Paklenica Creek to a point where we will descend through the impressive gorge and after 6-7 hours and a lovely day we will enjoy an evening at leisure.


Day 8: Plitvice National Park Hiking and Zagreb


Croatia’s capital Zagreb will be our final destination today. Along the drive, we will stop at Plitvice National Park. Here we will take a day hike along wooden paths and bridges around the Plitvice Lakes. This is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and we’ll be able to see more than 90 waterfalls, numerous caves along the exquisite series of 16 emerald green and blue travertine lakes. At the end lies a panoramic boat and train ride, ready to take us back to the start.

We will then head to Zagreb, stopping for lunch along the way, enjoying the exquisite scents and flavors of local Lika cuisine. Tonight we are free for an evening of exploring the city.


Day 9: Samobor Highlands Hiking


Today we set off toward the town of Samobor, where we will enjoy a leisurely hike less than an hour drive from Zagreb. The Zumbeaka and Samobor Highland Nature Park stretches over the hilly slopes of the Zumberak Mountain. The large variety of hiking trails attracts hikers, climbers and nature enthusiasts from central Croatia.

After our hike, we will take some time to visit the small town of Samobor – where we can take in the beautiful Baroque architecture. They say you cannot visit Samobor without stopping for coffee and Kremšnite, a puff pastry with a delicious custard cream filling. We will definitely stop for a coffee break and a tasty treat.

Once we arrive back in Zagreb you will have time to explore, relax or try some of the wonderful restaurants that capture your interest.


Day 10: Explore Zagreb


Following breakfast we’ll have a guided tour of the Old Town, so you don’t miss any of the exciting sights. The rest of the day will be at your leisure, so you will have the opportunity to explore the city until your heart’s content. Later on, we will have a farewell dinner at one of the city’s most delicious restaurants.


Day 11: Departure Day


Today we have breakfast then check out of the hotel. There will be two transfers to the Zagreb airport depending on your schedule.
