Croatian roads are great for cycling but they often have no signs and they are not even on maps because there is no car traffic on them

Kayaking on Zrmanja River

Early in the morning we drive towards a little village called Kaštel Žegarski and start our expedition down the magnificent wild-west-like canyons of the Zrmanja and Krupa Rivers. The watercraft may be raft, canoe or sit-on-top kayak depending upon the river conditions. We push off for an afternoon of refreshing fun on the clear, warm and green waters of these Croatian rivers, considered two of the most beautiful in Europe. Waterfalls and easy rapids, hidden swimming pools, steep sided canyons… It doesn’t get better than this!

Optional trip day

Trekking in the NP Paklenica

If there ever was a morning worth getting up early, this is that morning.  Our small expedition leads us into Paklenica National Park, the most famous trekking and rock climbing national park in Croatia. Hiking is the only way to really get to know Paklenica. Finishing our fabulous day in the NP Paklenica, we continue our journey to visit Zadar, a beautiful old town on the Adriatic coast.
