  • Discover Croatia’s epic coastline and islands on this beginner-friendly guided hiking and sailing trip! Take in Croatia’s breathtaking nature and stunning shores, and explore ancient Greek settlements, old Dalmatian monasteries, and WWII monuments on some of Europe’s most scenic hiking trails. Unwind on Croatia’s finest beaches and party hubs, taste local wines and delicacies, and sleep on a catamaran under the starry Mediterranean skies!

    • Make your way to Trogir, Dalmatia, and start your week-long adventure! Have lunch before embarking on your sailing trip to the island of Brač. After a safety briefing, board your catamaran and head for Milna, a traditional Dalmatian village on the island. Spend the afternoon sightseeing and enjoy a traditional dinner by the seaside.

    • Head out for a hike from Milna to Blaca bay. Halfway down the trail, you’ll visit a 500-year-old monastery called the Blaca hermitage, a stunning landmark crafted fully in stone by monks. The hike ends on a beautiful beach, where a boat will be waiting for you. 

      After a swim break, depart to the island of Hvar, where you’ll spend the night in Stari Grad, an ancient Greek settlement and the oldest town in Croatia.

    • After a filling breakfast, choose how to spend day 5. You can either go for a long hike (not recommended if you partied hard the night before), or take it easy and visit the world-famous Stiniva beach, located in a picturesque cove surrounded by massive cliffs. Afterwards, you can choose to visit one of the many post-WWII bunkers on the island before heading out to do some evening wine tasting.

    • Dalmatia’s mild Mediterranean climate boasts perfect weather year-round. Tours are scheduled to fit with the seasons and ideal cycling conditions. When the weather does not cooperate, your guide will know the correct course of action to take. Whether that’s shifting to a more favorable location or postponing until conditions approve, your guide will know just what to do. In the event of predictably bad weather, you will be contacted prior to the trip to discuss suitable alternatives. 

    • We highly recommend that you cover all your bases with both emergency medical and travel insurance. With medical insurance, if you have an accident or medical emergency on or off the mountain, you’ll avoid paying out of pocket for costly expenses. This covers everything from hospital treatments to emergency air transportation and more.

      Travel insurance covers canceled flights, natural disasters and other scenarios that may interrupt your travel plans. 

      We also expect you to respect local regulations and take measures to protect yourselves, your guides, and the communities you’re traveling to. For more information on travel recommendations and restrictions in Croatia, please refer to the official government travel information or  the official site of the Croatian Tourist Board.

      If you need assistance selecting the right insurance for your group, let us know and we will be happy to help!
