Where the time stopped –
the story of Dalmatia I


ten nights/eleven days
Price per person: 990 € (Single room in hotels: + 50%)

This tour is arranged for everyone who likes to spend lots of time in the nature and explore the world of adventure tourism. We are sure you will enjoy in paddling, hiking, swimming, snorkeling, walking, playing different games and visiting many interesting places.
There are all the elements that paddlers need in this tour: large river estuary with canyon, small islets and the coast full of coves and small beaches to explore and enjoy. Besides natural beauties, there are lot of historical sites and stories in this area full of history. Some local customs, which are almost disappeared nowadays, are also exceptionally interesting. And cuisine, of course. Primitive camping is necessary in some occasions, where there are no official camping sites. You don’t like that? Lack of luxury, perhaps? Well, yes, but instead of shower and electricity (which you have at your home, don’t you), you will have quiet secluded beach, the sound of waves and bright stars above you. Do you have that at your home? Your guides are not only experienced paddlers, but also real experts for local history and interesting places. There will be possibility of buying any supplies every day.

We continue paddling downstream the Krka estuary to the sea. On our way to the sea we will stop in the city of Šibenik, medieval Croatian city, one of the rare cities on the coast which were built by Croatian kings, not by Romans. Another very interesting spot we are going to visit is the Saint Nicholas fortress on the very river mouth. The fortress was built in sixteenth century by Venetians and is situated on a small island, but connected with the mainland. It used to be very important for the protection of the city.
