The first ingredient in our recipe hails
from Kvarner Bay
Shrimps from Kvarner are the Adriatic's biggest and most delicious, and probably the region's best-known speciality. The island of Cres is also renowned for its tender and juicy lamb, and what could be more pleasurable than sharing a platter with your travelling companions?
And let’s not forget another
in our recipe: some of Croatia’s best wines produced in Slavonia! This historic region reaps the fruits of its unique characteristics beneficial to the cultivating of vines and winemaking, producing white wines such as Graševina, Chardonnay, Sauvignon, Pinot Gris and Zelenac. You can taste any of the most famous white varieties on a trip to wineries in Srijem, Đakovo, Kutjevo or Ilok, and find your own favourite!
will also play a starring role during your trip, as you spend time exploring the ancient olive oil routes of Istria. Friendly local oil-producing families will kindly invite you to dip some fresh bread into some of the most select olive oils in the world, such as the Buža, Karbonaca and Oblica varieties, sampling the oils’ bitter and spicy notes. And to complete your experience, don't forget to try the local truffles, one of the gastronomical pearls of the region of Istria.
Some serious skill and fine-honed practice will be needed in order to help you source the trip’s final ingredient. The Dalmatian coast is a top destination for sport-fishing enthusiasts, both in fresh and salt water. Whether it's sea bass, gilt-head bream, tuna or trout you’re after, select your target and get fishing!Sport Fishing
