Croatia is one of the most interesting European countries. Although its area is small, it is rich in different landscapes; rivers and lakes, seas and mountains, islands and continental plains. The perfect climate in the warm part of the year ranks Croatia among the most desirable destinations for adventure vacations. In this text, we will go over some Croatian beauties, as well as ideas for a superb active holiday on the island of Pag.
Why is Croatia an ideal place for adventure?
So small, yet so tame, different and beautiful. Croatia is special in its diversity, and it is rare that in such a small space you can find a whole series of different landscapes that take your breath away. If you are interested in centuries-old fir and beech forests, and you are not a fan of the summer heat, you can head to the mountain district and find plenty of hiking and biking trails there. You can rent a house in the forest and spend days exploring the world around you. You can swim in mountain lakes and enjoy the Risnjak National Park, the highest part of Gorski Kotar. If you like high mountains, go to Velebit, Dinara or Biokovo where you can hike and climb the highest peaks and walk through endless meadows, pastures, ridges and forests. Even two national parks and three nature parks are located on these mountains, and the longest and most beautiful Croatian mountain, Velebit, is only half an hour away from the island of Pag. Those who still like to stick to the lowlands can try rafting, kayaking or canyoning in the turquoise waters of Mrežnica, Cetina, Zrmanja or Krka. Croatian islands are full of beautiful coves and blue and clear seas that are perfect for sea kayaking, kitesurfing, windsurfing or swimming. The indented coast over 6,000 kilometers long attracts millions of tourists every year and is an ideal choice for an adventure trip.
