Sure, you could visit somewhere in Europe that’s well known for being well known, but that would be like re-watching the same movie a zillion times. And you’d be missing out on the AWESOME BEAUTY of Croatia. Bursting with gushing waterfalls and turquoise lakes, this is the perfect setting for endless kayaking and picnicking. We’ve also fixed up authentic wine, beer and cheese tasting, and no trip to the Dalmatian Coast is complete without some sandy downtime (hello, 13th century islands with hidden beaches). So whether you’re stumbling across one of the Med’s finest beaches or drinking beer in Zagreb, you’re sure to discover a vibrant culture full of hidden gems (we won’t tell if you don’t…)

  • Explore Zagreb and enjoy local beer tasting
  • Kayak the waterfalls of the Mreznica river
  • Hike the Plitvice lakes with an expert guide
  • Stay in a medieval style boutique hotel near the Plitvice lakes
  • Uncover Renaissance treasures on a 13th Century island hideaway
  • Discover Split and indulge in a wine and olive tasting
  • Stay in a traditional village boutique hotel in the heart of the national park
  • Take a catamaran to the island of Hvar and relax by the beach
  • Go cheese tasting on a local farm

Itinerary

Day 1: Zoom around Zagreb

Touch down in Zagreb and get ready to dive head first into adventure – and into Croatia’s gin clear waters. Once you’ve settled into your hotel, your tour guide will then whisk you round the city on a whistle stop tour to ensure maximum beer-drinking time later on. During a busy afternoon of sightseeing, prepare to enjoy (*deep breath*) the Upper Town, the Cathedral, the Stone Gate, St Mark’s Church, Ban Jelačić and plenty of other places of note, before heading to one of Zagreb’s coolest bars. Here, we’ve laid on a beer tasting for you, where you can taste the difference between unpasteurised, unfiltered lagers and bond over beer.

Day 2: Tasting cheese and chasing waterfalls

After a big breakfast to soak up last night’s beer, you’ll head off to a family farm for yet another tasting event. Nestled in the unspoilt village of Točak, Novković farm boasts a mini cheese factory which uses old-school crafting materials to perform the necessary magic with the curd. Once you’ve eaten your way through all eight cheeses, it’s time to burn off some of those cheesy calories on a guided hike around the Plitvice Lakes National Park. Wrapped in a lush forest cloak, Plitvice Lakes is one of the most beautiful natural phenomena in the world and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. During a four hour guided walk around the turquoise waters you’ll discover its sixteen terraced lakes that are joined together by almost a hundred cascading waterfalls. You’ll stay overnight in a nearby boutique hotel, getting up close and personal with the magic beauty of this spectacular scenery.

Day 3: Ever been on a kayak safari?

Get ready for a fast-paced day of action and wave goodbye to the serene beauty of Plitvice, it’s time to get physical. Today we’ll be conquering Mrežnica’s kayaking territory with its emerald, free-flowing river and unspoilt woods – the perfect backdrop for this Mrežnica kayak safari. Beginners need not be afraid…not only will you receive comprehensive tuition, but the waters here offer a good, safe ride and the kayaks are easy to navigate. Your waterborne adventure features impressive white cliffs, 5-8m waterfalls and lush vegetation, and you’ll picnic by one of the tallest cascading waterfalls on the Mrežnica for the ultimate lunch location. After your picturesque picnic it’s time for a scenic 4 hour drive to the gorgeous coastal city of Split. Here you’ll be guzzling fine wine, fish delicacies and delicious olive oil at your own private wine and olive oil tasting, sounds perfect right?
