Run through paradise
Croatia is a land of wondrous beauty with its sea, mountains, and forests. Whether you are the adventurous type, or prefer jogging, everyone will find something for themselves. For those hungry for action, we suggest just a few of numerous possibilities: scarping on Pašman, orienteering on Cres, or cave trekking in Lika. For those who prefer more traditional activities, we recommend walks along the Drava, Sava and Mura Rivers, and obviously strolls by the sea.
Tie your shoes, warm up, and get going!
Become the highest person in Croatia
The myriad of mountains in Croatia offers lovers of heights everything they need.
Do you want something easier for starters, up to 1000 m.a.s.l.? No problem, we have more moderate trails on hills of Slavonia and Zagorje.
Think you’re ready for the highest peaks? Don’t worry, everything above 1500 m.a.s.l. is a real challenge. Velebit, Dinara, Risnjak, and Velika Kapela with their highest summits think they are untouchable, but it’s up to you to prove them wrong and win!
P.S. We didn’t tell you what beauties lie on each mountain, because we didn’t want to ruin the surprise. Every climber knows that it’s best to let the mountain astound you with gorgeous sights when you least expect it!
Climb above your limits
30 years ago, Split’s Marjan hill held the first sports climbing competition in Croatia. While Marjan is a symbol of tradition, Markezina Greda is a symbol for a new era of Croatian climbing. This climbing rock above Klis currently has an impressive 90 routes – something for everyone!
Although most climbing locations are situated in the coastal region, the Croatian inland also has its beauties. One of them is Pokojec near Varaždin.
There are many attractive locations in Croatia that are ideal for sports climbing. The Paklenica Canyon and Dabar Cliffs on Velebit are but a couple of the many places beckoning you to test your limits, in tranquillity.
Pedal to freedom
While many try to take cool panoramic shots with their smartphones, true cyclists know that it is much better when you pedal your own panoramic tour. Ride down the steep mountain roads of Medvednica, Biokovo or Učka, and experience the feeling of freedom when you let your wheels do all the work and you enjoy a panoramic view the best way possible – in person.
Surrender to the rapids
Numerous springs in the rugged mountain rocks of Gorski Kotar, Velebit, and Dinara grow into rapids of indescribable beauty. Regardless of whether you are alone in your kayak, an “Indian” in a canoe, or part of a team in a boat, the cold water and surreal green nature will assure you that there is nothing better than this.
Explore as you row
The Croatian coast offers many opportunities for all those seeking to explore as they row. Numerous inaccessible beaches and bays on Croatian islands and capes are the reward for every stroke and effort you make! Explore the islands of Lopud and Šipan and the Zaton Bay which when combined with the sun and magnificent scenery guarantee an unforgettable voyage.
Ride the wave
They say that the best surfer in the world is the once that has the most fun. To surf you only need a board, a good wave, and a strong will. You already have a good board and your strong will was never an issue, so find your great waves in Viganj on Pelješac, Bol on Brač, or Medulin in Istria.
