Explore the National Parks, Breathtaking Nature, UNESCO World Heritage Sites & Local Culture
If you wish to experience the best of Croatia in an active way, look no further, this tour is definitly a match.
Croatia is a small Mediterranean country that offers a stunning variety of landscapes. The beautiful Adriatic coastline with more than 1000 islands is just the beginning. Rugged mountains that arise directly from the sea provide shelter for stunning rivers, lakes and waterfalls with clear turquoise water. Warm friendly people and rich gastronomy evidence the culture and history more than 2000 years old.
Each day of this trip from Zagreb to Dubrovnik will be filled with activities such as kayaking, walking and cycling through river canyons, National Parks, local villages, medieval towns, Adriatic coastline and islands. I'll take you off the beaten path to explore not only hot tourist spots but also hidden treasures and the way real Croatian people live.

I will use my private car to take you to Plitvice Lakes. It's a Daccia Lodgy from 2012 with AC that can fit maximum 6 passengers+driver but for multiday tours I take only 4 people in this vehicle. In case or larger groups I rent a van instead.
We will discover the national parks on foot (walking and hiking), cycle, kayak and take boat rides in some parks.

Davor was an excellent guide; we always felt that our enjoyment was his primary concern. His English was excellent, and he never hesitated to provide information, history, translations or answers to our many questions. The accommodations he selected were mostly smaller, family run enterprises that provided excellent service and great meals. For us, this multi-sport adventure with Davor as our guide was an excellent way to see Croatia.
