Wild Croatia: An Active Adriatic Adventure
Tue December 17, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST
Few places on earth rival the Dalmatian Coast for sea kayaking. With more than 1,200 islands and reefs, Croatia’s turquoise bays and intimate coves are perfect for a paddling idyll, while its rugged interior offers more nature exploration on foot. Join Expedition Leader and Croatia native Monika Mikulec for a survey of Wild Croatia by Land and Sea, an active adventure featuring kayaking, village walks, ancient ruins, mountain lakes, and evergreen forests home to European brown bears. Explore Lonjsko Polje Nature Park, a 200-square-mile reserve and bird sanctuary that is the largest protected wetland in the Danube Basin. Witness the enchanting beauty of Plitivice Lakes National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site of crystalline streams, waterfalls and terraced pools. On the edge of Velebit National Park, visit Kuterevo Bear Refuge, founded to protect orphaned and injured brown bears that can’t be returned to the wild. Then, head to the coast to paddle, swim, feast and wine-taste along the Adriatic coast, island-hopping aboard a wooden motor-sailing yacht offering luxurious floating accommodations. It’s a diverse nature adventure that’s decidedly indulgent!
