Day 2: Sea Kayaking
Today we will be taking you Sea kayaking, setting the pace for the week. Pristine nature, like minded people and wow factor moments. This is a fantastic activity to try, and super easy to learn. There will be time for swimming and snorkelling, offering a fantastic opportunity to observe the marinas underwater life.
Lunch is included and our guides know plenty of great places to relax around the coast. Mums and Dads can mix and match on the kayaks, allowing our single parents to get to know each other very quickly, in a relax environment.
Day 3: High ropes, climbing & ziplines
You’re morning is free to explore the local area, so take this golden opportunity to walk into the old town and experience the local culture. Why not ask one of our Tour Leaders for tips on places to eat and visit. Their extensive local knowledge can help you make the most of you’re morning. In the afternoon we will drive to the high ropes park, which offers 4 levels of difficulty, with each level getting higher and higher.
You will be learning the techniques to manoeuvre around obstacles and master rope climbing techniques. This is a great challenge for all ages and an activity bound to have the parents screaming as loud as the kids.
Day 4: Mountain Biking
Cycling our coastal route is always rated as one of the most enjoyed activities by our single parent guests. Our biking day is designed so it is fun and enjoyable for the whole family. The local countryside offers quiet nature trails, historical sites and lots of unspoiled nature.
As we tour through this beautiful region, home & work life will feel very far away. Disconnect and Reconnect with the 3 things that truly matter: your children, yourself, your planet.
Day 5: Free Day
Today is you’re free day and what you get up to is down to you. You can simply relax or our guides can help you arrange plenty of interesting ways to spend the day. Take advantage of their local knowledge and create your own perfect day.
Day 6: Cruise across the Adriatic
Today, we’ll be cruising around Croatia’s pristine blue coastline on our own boat. Your family will be able to enjoy swimming, snorkelling, lilo wars in some of Europe’s finest warm waters. We have lots of fun games to play, plenty of ice cream and drinks on board. Better yet we always treat our guests to a fresh fish picnic lunch.

Day 7: Climbing & abseiling
Often mentioned as a highlight to our family activity holiday in Croatia is the climbing experience. Firstly, the climbing location is a total joy. Even if you don’t climb, being here is a good enough. Situated next to a pretty Lake and waterfall, you’ll get to try your hands at rock climbing. Our qualified instructors will help you master the art even if you are a complete novice.
After the mornings climbing session, we’ll enjoy a delicious BBQ next to the turquoise waters of the lake. Feeling hot? Why not take a dip and refresh yourself with a swim! As tonight is your last night, we’ll take your family for a well deserved local style dinner. Fantastic food, great atmosphere, dinning like a local.
Day 8: Departure (too soon)
It’s time for your family’s departure. We will transfer you to the airport and bid you farewell. But in Croatia we do not say good bye, we say “until the next time!”

Kayaking was the most memorable part of our holiday. Guides on all activities were excellent! One tip we would give to other families booking this holiday – don’t stand up in the kayak. We felt that this holiday also benefited local people and local businesses, we found a lot about Croatia and learned about the nature. Our guides Mijo, Dariona and Beti were supportive and motivational, they made the activities so enjoyable. Marija and Barisa are exemplary, couldn’t wish for the better team to support our trip. Croatia is a beautiful country and this is an ideal area for activity based holiday! We will be recommending this trip to all our friends back home.
The guides were great

Just back from our 7 day Croatian family adventure holiday and it couldn’t have been better! From our fantastic guide Alen who organized everything and helped us with other requests to the people instructing the activites, the accomodation, food and even the weather. A well planned and appropriate set of adventures the whole family enjoyed with every activity -kayaking, high tree ropes, cycling, boat trip, rock climbing and canyon swimming- a highlight for the kids! Highly recommended from travellers of many places and tours!!
