Starting to thing about sun, sand and sea or action, adventure and adrenaline for next spring and summer? It might not be an easy choice, but luckily, some places have it all.
Croatia has long been a hidden gem for travellers. In recent years, it’s become one of the most popular destinations in Europe due to its fantastic climate, stunning scenery and gorgeous beaches. A private holiday home will allow you to enjoy the very best that Croatia has to offer. And if you’re looking for a more adrenaline-filled water activity than floating on a Lilo, then Croatia is definitely the place for you!
Some of the most exciting ways to really get up close to nature are rafting, kayaking and canyoning. Kayaking or rafting down the rivers as they flow through the unspoilt and varied landscape is a real thrill. If you’re looking for a serious adrenaline kick, try canyoning – the best way to explore Croatia‘s spectacular canyons. Walking through rapids, sliding through tunnels, swimming in river pools and abseiling down waterfalls is a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
Sailing is no doubt the best way to discover the wonders of the Croatian coast. Whether you’re an experienced sailor or a beginner, you’ll be amazed by the crystal clear water and the multitude of islands, islets and reefs. Learn how to sail at a local sailing club or rent a private yacht and explore the archipelago on your own.
If you prefer the world under the surface, Croatia offers some of the best diving experiences in Europe. One amazing dive site is the famous shipwreck of Baron Gautsch near Rovinj in Istria. The underwater world off the island of Korcula has been described as the most complex and interesting dive site in the Mediterranean. Do you want some photographic evidence to bring home from your marine explorations? Take a course in underwater photography at the dive centre in Vela Luka.
