Croatian "Wild West"


Croatia's extensive coastline with around 1250 islands and well-preserved coastal renaissance towns are probably top picks of any tourist. But alongside that Croatia also offers very rich and complex interior, especially inside its national parks. This tour is created for people who love outdoor activities, practice dynamic way of life and love nature.

Owing to the exceptional beauty of pristine nature, Croatian national parks were chosen for the shooting of the legendary Winnetou movies based on the novels by the German author Karl May. These beautiful locations played the "role" of the backdrop of the American Wild West. Thus, Croatian "Wild West. " So, let's follow the steps of Winnetou, fictional Native American hero!

A Recent Review of this tour

This tour and tour guide, Senad O. were fantastic. There was a lot of rain during our visit, but our guide was able to amazingly adjust our itinerary to mostly dodge the bad weather and maximize our sightseeing experience at the national parks and surrounding areas. Senad is very knowledgeable about Croatian history and culture, which greatly added to the richness of our tour. Our group included two seniors (70+ yrs old) and one other adult; Senad adapted the tour so that everyone could enjoy each day.
