Arrive into Croatia

Arrive into Croatia

Our Croatian Adventure gets under way. Check-in to the hotel, located just a few kilometres from the town of Biograd, near to Zadar. You can arrive at anytime and there is a welcome meeting at 6 pm.An important coastal town, the musical steps on Zadar's waterfront express its important relationship with the sea. Trace marble streets through the Old Town and discover Roman ruins in amongst medieval churches.Hotel Crvena Luka - Dinner included

Day
2
Pag Island

Pag Island

 After breakfast we transfer to Pag island and city. Thanks to the strong "bora" wind that blows during the winter months, the surface of Pag island is bare and often compared to the moon. The aromatic herbs that grow from the stones give a unique taste to the famous sheep cheese, which alongside lamb and seafood delicacies make up the gastronomic offerings of the island. We will explore the island and the town of Pag before having lunch in a locally run restaurant and visiting a cheese factory - where we get to sample many delights.

Krka National Park

Krka National Park

Today we jump on our bikes and cycle through the impressive Krka National Park. The Krka National Park was proclaimed in 1985 and covers an area of 111 sq km from the riverhead of Krka in the Knin Valley down to the bridge of Sibenik, where the river flows into the sea. On its 75 km long journey the river Krka creates many lakes, waterfalls and cataracts. The park has an exceptionally rich and diverse fauna and flora - 860 species and sub-species of plants are recorded and it is one of the most important places for birds in Europe.
