Kornati Sailing Adventure
Croatia and sailing go great together
You are going to spend 3 nights on this Kornati Sailing Adventure around the most spectacular coastline in Europe. Also, you will discover tiny islands and secluded coves of Kornati National Park archipelago hidden in the sparkling blue Adriatic Sea. We start our sailing expedition in Skradin. On the very edge of the Krka National Park. The coastal waters of Sibenik contain an archipelago of numerous islands. Therefore these little islands make marvelous getaways if you’re looking for a rustic vacation experience. On our last sailing day, we head back towards Skradin. Upon our arrival to Skradin, depending on time, you can make an optional visit to the Krka River National Park, an afternoon walk from Skradin to the 44-meters high Skradinski Buk waterfall.
Sailing from a different perspective
The first destination we reach is the island Prvic. The first settlers were probably recluses. While traveling aboard our catamaran, you will experience the true culture of the islands and people. This Kornati Sailing Adventure holiday isn’t just a sailing trip or an adventure package. We designed it for those who love being active, who admire the outdoors and appreciate ancient architecture and local tradition. Our yachts or kayaks are occasionally escorted by friendly dolphins or tuna that are often seen in the area. Croatia is alive with well-preserved old towns, castles, palaces, monuments and native architecture. Together with the tradition, folklore, art scenes and music, it is a unique and exotic place to discover. If you plan to spend your vacation in Croatia you will find a wide range of activity tours with Raftrek.
