Guided tour of 5 best Croatian national parks and 1 nature park


This tour was designed for all those who love to walk through beautiful nature while exploring local culture, history & gastronomy. I have put together an amazing itinerary that includes 5 best Croatian national parks and 1 nature park with an accent on a rich variety of landscapes - mountains, hills, rivers, lakes, waterfalls, Adriatic Sea & coast.

Apart from famous hiking trails and hidden gems like the Gorski Kotar area, you will also visit Zadar & Sibenik, real masterpieces of urban art and architecture. Time in between the hikes will be spent enjoying the local atmosphere and experiencing how local people live, while savoring some tasty berry strudel and forest soup or Mediterranean fish, wine & olive oil.

Come and discover Croatia's incredibly preserved nature, medieval towns, rustic villages, old monuments, folklore, music, history and tradition more than 2000 years old. Join me on this trip of a lifetime and discover why Croatia is called a small country for a big adventure!
