Rivers by the Sea


This program is a well-balanced mixture of activity, nature and culture. Your days will be filled with cycling, walking/hiking, biking and sea kayaking in the area where the Krka River enters the Adriatic Sea. Canoeing/kayaking through rapids of exotic river canyons and white water rafting through jungle-like forests and exploring caves. Afternoons and evenings will be spent in the relaxing ambience of Zadar and Sibenik old towns, Roman emperor Diocletians palace in Split and Trogir art treasures both UNESCO World Heritage sites.

Our base will be pretty town of Skradin, a small picturesque town situated on the very edge of Krka River National Park. Rich in history, Skradin impresses visitors with a combination of brightly painted and bare stone houses and a ruined ancient fortress towering above and hosts couple of family-run hotels, restaurants, pubs and wineries, a beach and marina. It is off the main tourist path and remains a friendly town rather than a fast-pace resort.
