Excursions

Biokovo Nature Park

 

Biokovo Nature Park is the most dominating presence on the southern Dalmatian coast. Proclaimed a nature park in 1981, this mountain rampart towers a good 1500 meters over the Makarska Riviera and offers exceptional views over the sea and nearby islands. It is one of Croatia's most popular destinations for hikers with myriad paths that wind up the hills past olive groves, vineyards and pine forests. The Biokovo massif that stretches 36 kilometers along the coast and nine kilometers inland drops down in a series of craggy limestone rocks and sheer cliffs interspersed with caves, pits and sinkholes. The most popular hiking and mountaineering destination is Vosac (1421 meters) which lies only 2.5 kilometers from Makarska.[1]

The Nature Park covers an area of 19,550 hectares and its highest point is Sveti Jure (1762 meters).

Međugorje

 

Međugorje is currently one of the biggest marian shrines in the world. With the apparition of the blessed virgin Mary on 24th June, 1981, this place has become the destination of the pilgrims from all over the world.
The fundamental message of Međugorje is peace. Every pilgrim visits the Parish church of St. Jacob, The Hill of Apparition, Križevac, Garden of St. Francis, and Canacolo. The most important events in the course of the year are: Apparition's anniversary, Youth festival, Assumption, Mass on Križevac, Easter, Christmas, and New Year's celebration.

Dubrovnik

 

Dubrovnik is a Croatian city on the Adriatic Sea. It is one of the most prominent tourist destinations in the Mediterranean Sea, a seaport and the centre of Dubrovnik-Neretva County. Its total population is 42,615 (census 2011). In 1979, the city of Dubrovnik joined the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.

The prosperity of the city was historically based on maritime trade; as the capital of the maritime Republic of Ragusa, it achieved a high level of development, particularly during the 15th and 16th centuries, as it became notable for its wealth and skilled diplomacy.

Rafting on Cetina

 

It is our pleasure to be able to offer you the spectacular rafting and  canyoning experience only a few kilometres away from the sea - on the Cetina River, in close vicinity to the medieval pirates' nest – the small town of Omiš.

Due to its ideal position in the very heart of Central Dalmatia, almost halfway between the towns of Split (20 km to the north) and Makarska (35 km to the south), as well as the magnificent beauty and contrast of the sea, the river and the mountains surrounding it, Omiš is the perfect destination for all adventure lovers.

Apart from rafting, Omiš also offers excellent opportunities for free climbing. Over 40 marked climbing routes on 7 different climbing locations situated in the very heart of town are bound to satisfy even the most demanding and experienced climbers.

Plitvice Lakes

 

Plitvice Lakes is the oldest and largest national park in the Republic of Croatia. The park is situated in the mountainous region of Croatia, between the Mala Kapela mountain range in the west and northwest, and the Lička Plješivica mountain range to the southeast. Administratively, the park falls within two counties: Lika-Senj (90.7%) and Karlovac (9.3%).
With its exceptional natural beauty, this area has always attracted nature lovers, and already on 8 April 1949, it was proclaimed Croatia’s first national park. The process of tufa formation, which results in the building of the tufa, or travertine, barriers and resulted in the creation of the lakes, is the outstanding universal value, for which the Plitvice Lakes were internationally recognised on 26 October 1979 with their inscription onto the UNESCO World Heritage List. In 1997, the boundaries of the national park were expanded, and today it covers an area just under 300 km2.

Krka National Park

 

Krka National Park lies within Šibenik-Knin County, and covers a total area of 109 km² of the loveliest sections of the Krka River, and the lower course of the Čikola River.

The national park is a vast and primarily unaltered area of exceptional natural value, including one or more preserved or insignificantly altered ecosystems. The purpose of the park is primarily to serve science, culture, education and recreation, while tourism activities have also been introduced for its visitors.

Including the submerged part of the river at the mouth, the Krka River is 72.5 km long, making it the 22nd longest river in Croatia. It springs in the foothills of the Dinara mountain range, 2.5 km northeast of Knin. With its seven waterfalls and a total drop in altitude of 242 m, the Krka is a natural and karst phenomenon. The travertine waterfalls of the Krka River are the fundamental phenomenon of this river.
