There is no fixed itinerary.
Depending upon the group’s desires, interests and the amount of walking/hiking combined with the terrain, we design a tour tailored to you. We then take weather into consideration. Hotel and mountain lodges are then booked along our route that will suit the type of trip for that week.
Hotels & Lodges
The hotels and lodges are almost all family-based and have been within their families for many generations. They live and work there every day and have become our friends. It is similar to being welcomed into their homes, frequently we sit and chat with the owners.
The 4 star hotels have been chosen for many reasons: mostly because they are clean, comfortable, friendly staff and have modern amenities. They are all in good locations, such as a vibrant village or have a great view.
Some have fantastic spa areas where you can enjoy and relax. Massages and beauty treatments should be booked once we start your tour. Many of the hotels have excellent chefs, some nights we’ll take dinner in the hotel restaurants, where we know you will love the meal.
In a typical week, we will stay at two different hotels and one mountain lodge. The experience of watching the sunset and maybe the sunrise while surrounded by the peace and quiet of these beautiful coral mountains is something you will cherish.
The foods of Croatia are regional. In the mainland area, dishes are a medley of Hungarian, Austrian, Slavic and Turkish influences. You’ll experience liberal use of black pepper, paprika, and garlic. The coastal dishes are influenced by Greek, Roman and Mediterranean styles with olive oil, herbs and many other spices. Fresh seafood is a treat in Croatia.
Breakfasts are usually a large buffet of healthy choices including cereals, granola, yoghurt and fruit, breads, pastries, cheeses, meats and often eggs and of course coffee, tea and juices.
During our walks, we stop along the way at delightful little locations. This gives us a break for a drink or snack.
The price of dinner is also included in the tour’s cost for all six nights. However, you are free to explore the villages and try a restaurant of your choice, either by yourself or with a group. Of course, your guide will make recommendations.
After dinner there are bars, nightclubs and friendly pubs where you can meet some locals and even listen to some live music.
