Nature at its finest

If you’re a nature or an animal lover, love to get out of the city or like to know where your food comes from, there is a place in Europe where you can still lose yourself in truly virgin and diverse landscapes


Kick the day off with

The lakes Prošćansko and Kozjak are the largest and highest, respectively, while the park’s virgin forest Čorkova Uvala is home to 157 different bird species. The park also features a myriad of trails and paths for enjoying quality hiking and biking.

You’ll need to take a break after all that beauty, and for relaxation, there’s nowhere better than the beach... But not just any beach will do! The island of Mljet is home to a beach called Saplunara, where you can soak up the bliss of white sands and lush pinewoods




Are you ready to

get back to the action?

 Great, because more adventure awaits! The Brijuni islands, located between Pula and Rovinj, form an authentic wildlife reserve. On this part of your trip, you'll enjoy the chance to get up close to animals from all over the world, such as elephants, lamas and zebras and indigenous species like Istrian cattle (boškarin), Istrian sheep and donkeys.


And after all that, it’s time for bed!

Sleeping under the stars is firmly on the menu in Croatia, and a perfect example is the island of Krk in the gulf of Kvarner. The largest island in the Adriatic, it is known as the Golden Island and is home to a wide range of spectacular campsites nestled among its luxuriant vegetation.
