Day 2: Sunday

River Tubing Fun

Our exclusive River Tubing tour is great fun. The perfect way to ease into this wonderful multi active week. Each person receives their own inflatable donut. You’ll be using your rubber ring to ride 9 km of river rapids and mini waterfalls. In the slower parts, they’ll be time to swim and jump from the rocks. It’s a lot of splash action and requires very little skill. Just bring a big smile.

Sea kayaking

Day 3: Monday

The sea waters in Croatia are blue, warm and calm. The perfect combination for the nation’s favourite nautical sport of kayaking. Using double-man sea kayaks, you’ll be powering through the aqua waters as a pair. Our guides will lead the way, as we head to a remote beach location. At the half way point we’ll stop for a swim, to play games and enjoy the beach surroundings.  Depending on our chosen location to kayak, there will be time to find a local family restaurant or to explore a town or local village.

Visit Split or Optional Boat & Island hop

Day 4: Tuesday

Today is an official free day. Visiting Split is a popular idea or simply relax on the nearby beaches. Within a short walk of your accommodation, our families can find tennis courts, spa & beauty treatments, beaches and cocktail bars. For families that want to do more, they’ll be an opportunity to charter your own private boat. Explore secluded coves, stop for swimming and practise your best boating back flips. The boat & island hop experience is a very popular experience, more pictures can be seen on Facebook.

White Water Rafting & Omis

Day 5: Wednesday

Taking on the gushing Croatian river waters, is an adrenalin filled experience. Each raft is handled by a qualified captain, who guarantees an exhilarating ride. This white water thrill ride moves from big waves to calm scenic river sections, ranging Grade 1 to 3. Experience fast rapids, waterfall drops and bumpy rocks. At the half way point, they’ll be time to jump from the rocks and to swim in the river. When we finally disembark the rafts, we’ll head into Omis. The ‘City of Pirates’. Find excellent restaurants, a maze of shopping streets and a long stretch of beach.

Beach day or Optional Zip lining

Day 6: Thursday

Today you’ll have the option of relaxing around the pool or spending time on the lovely beaches of Podstrana. Along the coastal paths you’ll find places to rent bikes, jet skis and a floating sea assault course. For those active families and teens that want to do more, there is an option to go ‘Zip lining’. This is definitely a firm favourite for teenager adventure holidays. Suspended 150m high above a beautiful canyon, the ziplines are for serious thrill seekers. This tour is optional for our family active holiday in Croatia, as not everyone has a head for heights.

Canyoning, Waterfalls & Gala Meal

Day 7: Friday

Today, is your epic finale ‘canyoning’. Jump, swim, crawl, splash and laugh your way through an abundance of waterfalls, rock-pools and subterranean water channels. Swimming underneath a 47m high waterfall,  will be an unforgettable highlight to your family adventure holiday in Croatia. The canyon walls rise 200 metre’s and we’ll be negotiating ourselves down stream through various terrain. The only way is forward with this activity, so each guest must have an ‘above average’ fitness level.

Tonight, we’ll be having our farewell gala meal in a traditional Croatian Tavern, in a stunning countryside setting. Spectacular views and food guaranteed. It’s a special location to finalise an incredible week.
