6 must-have experiences in Croatia

From cycling to the peak of Korcula Island and feasting on fresh seafood overlooking the azure-blue waters of the Dalmatian Coast to floating down the swirling rapids of Cetina Gorge, here are some of the best experiences that Croatia has to offer.


Cycling on Korcula Island

Jump in the saddle and ascend to the highest peak of Croatia's Korcula Island to uncover spectacular views of verdant farmland, golden sand beaches and azure-blue ocean. Feel the wind rush past your face as we freewheel down to the coastal village of Zavalatica and top up the energy levels with lunch on a tranquil terrace overlooking the glistening sea. This afternoon we'll meander through the island's fertile vineyards with far-reaching views of the beautiful Dalmatian Coast before toasting a fun day in the saddle with some delicious local wine at our hotel in Lumbarda.

Hiking Through Paklenica National Park

Pull on your walking boots for a spectacular Croatia hike through Paklenica National Park. Follow dusty trails through beech and pine forests and make your way towards the coastline, where a thick blanket of marquis scrubland makes way for secluded pebble beaches lapped by the crystal-clear sea. Take a refreshing dip in the calm waters of a deserted bay and watch the sky transform into a melting pot of red and orange as the sun dips behind the jagged peaks of the towering Velebit mountains.

Sea kayaking to Sunj Beach

Get the family set for a thrilling kayaking expedition on the island of Lopud, just off the coast from Dubrovnik. Push off from the island's picturesque harbour and explore craggy inlets and paddle around the rocky coastline before landing on the pristine white-sand beach of Sunj. Switch off and relax with a fun-filled day of beach activities. Try your hand at the traditional game of picigin, jumping, ducking and diving to keep a ball airborne and  explore the wonders of the Adriatic as we swim and snorkel in the calm, translucent ocean.

Canyoning in Cetina Gorge

For a family adventure that's anything but ordinary, head to Zadvarje for an unforgettable canyoning expedition in the roaring waters of Cetina Gorge. Scramble over rocks, dip behind curtains of cascading water and float down fizzing rapids in the shadow of the soaring limestone rockface meandering through the valley. Uncover the tumbling waters of the 60-metre high Gubavica Waterfall and dare to jump off rocky cliffs into the sunken plunge pools below, before crawling through subterranean tunnels and sliding down slippery boulders.

Feasting on fresh seafood

With more than 1,000 miles of pristine coastline, Croatia is known for its abundant fresh seafood. Feast on delicious grilled sea bream or john dory served with a drizzle of oil and a chunk of lemon overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. Head to Split's promenade for a wide variety of good quality fish restaurants, or find a rustic waterfront tavern in a pretty fishing village on Korcula Island to savour the catch of the day.

Game of Thrones set-jetting

If you're a Game of Thrones fan, Croatia is a hotspot for location sightseeing. Explore Dubrovnik's labyrinth of cobbled streets - the primary setting for King's Landing - and snoop behind the imposing walls of Fort Lovrijenac to be transported into the mysterious chambers of Red Keep. Or head to the catacombs of Split's Diocletian's Palace to walk through the streets of Meereen and uncover the setting for Daenerys Targaryen's throne room. Fans of the epic HBO series won't be disappointed.
