Itinerary : Discovering Croatia’s Northern Dalmatian Coast

We think of our itineraries as melodies: they have a beginning and an end, a certain arc, dramatic highlights and a few surprises. We like to improvise, to adapt to the mood of our guests or to circumstances that arise — an invitation to a traditional wedding, say, or a local ethnic festival…

Crafting beautiful, harmonious trips with delightful twists is our trade mark and passion.

Inn to Inn kayaking, hiking and optional stand up paddle boarding!

Day 1
After settling into a historic hotel in Split’s Diocletian’s Palace, wander though ancient streets for a welcome dinner in an atmospheric setting.
Day 2
Avoid the crowds on an early morning walking tour of Diocletian’s Palace. Have coffee in one of its lovely squares, surrounded by ancient history. In the afternoon, head to the picturesque village of Skradin – maybe in time for some SUP!
Day 3
Get immersed in the beauty of Krka National Park, hiking around the waterfalls, having a shake down paddle on quieter stretches of the river and trying out the SUPs.
Day 4
Get your paddling arms ready for a voyage down the Krka River to 11th century Sibernik.
Day 5
Paddle through a wartime tunnel, past the massive 16th Fort of St Nicholas and end up in a sleepy island harbour, home to the guy who invented the parachute!
Day 6
Head off from our harbour side inn to explore some of the surrounding islands.
Day 7
Kick up your heels in the morning, or paddle to a nearby quaint harbour for coffee with locals. In the afternoon, paddle back to the mainland for our ride to Novigrad, near Zadar.
Day 8
Go up the creek with a paddle! Head across Novigrad Bay and into the spectacular Zrmanja River Canyon.
Day 9
A fabulous finale: hike up through the dramatic landscapes of Paklenica National Park for a very special lunch. Head to Zadar for a walking tour of the old town and its Roman ruins. Listen to the sea organ at sundown, then enjoy a celebratory farewell dinner!
Day 10
Wake up in the old city of Zadar, and say farewell to new found friends over breakfast before beginning homeward or onward journeys.
