KORNATI

A wonderful day at the sea!

The Kornati islands are the densest uninhabited archipelago in the Mediterranean Sea with about 150 islands, islets and reefs. With a boat we will sail through many small islands to experience an extraordinary bathing and snorkeling paradise in a bay. You can feel a little bit like Robinson. On board you will have lunch with wine or a soft drink.

The Kornati archipelago, which covers 230 square kilometres of uninhabited islands, islets and bays, is one of the most beautiful archipelagos on the Mediterranean coast. As the largest and densest archipelago in the Adriatic, the Kornati islands are a combination of beautiful, pristine nature and important archaeological sites dating to the Romans. Due to the exceptional beauty of the landscape, interesting geomorphology, indented coastline, and ecosystem, the Kornati Islands were declared a National Park in 1980. Boats with or without a skipper can be rented upon request.

KRKA Waterfalls

The most beautiful Travertin-Waterfalls in Europe!

A bus trip over the city of Šibenik to the waterfalls. The river Krka rushes in 17 cataracts to a total depth of 46 meters! Take your time for a walk along the river bank, which takes about 1 hour. You also have the opportunity to visit a small village with a museum and old water mills. You can use the free time to take a refreshing bath in the clear river or to take dream pictures with your camera.

The Krka river is renowned for its travertine waterfalls, a special type of limestone. The beauty of the Krka river is a natural phenomenon. It comprises seven waterfalls. The most impressive waterfalls are Skradinski buk and Roški slap. Skradinski buk is considered one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Europe. You can visit a small museum and old mill, as well as the Franciscan monastery in the park on Visovac island. Visovac is in the middle of a lake, an extension of the Krka river, where the water has created a karst plateau. It is a harmonious blend of natural and historical heritage. The island hosting the Franciscan monastery, church and museum can also be visited.

PAKLENICA

Hike with us!

The canyon of Paklenica, which is also the main entrance to the National Park, is certainly the most valuable natural phenomenon and the pearl of the Velebit Mountains. Here you will find it a network of over 150 km long hiking trails, so you have various trekking possibilities. The canyon stretches from the sea to the interior of the Velebit Mountains, and offers its beauty to tourists and alpinists who have come along the path below the highest rock in Velebit – Anic kuk (714 m).

Paklenica National Park includes the most attractive areas of southern Velebit, including its highest peak. The park’s main attraction is the two stunning canyons of Velika and Mala Paklenica, which are cut into the mountain and descend from dizzying heights right down to the sea. Within the relatively small area of the national park are several unique karst relief forms, some caves, and lush and varied flora and fauna. The “Anića kuk” rock is the most outstanding of steep rock faces, and is the most popular destination for Croatian Alpinists.

PLITVICER LAKE

Nature game of the world cultural heritage!

Each visit will be a new experience of nature and power.

Like pearls on a chain, the 16 lakes with crystal clear water are strung out over just 7 km. Separated by limestone barriers, the cascading waterfalls tumble down 156 m. In 1979 this national park was included on the UNESCO list of world natural heritage. Immerse yourself in this unique natural beauty, and be enchanted by the magical green water.
