Dia 2 Plitvice Lakes National Park

Breakfast at the hotel and departure early in the morning at 5AM, to the region of the Plitevice Lakes Natural Park. This park is one of the jewels of Croatia, composed of a series of lakes and waterfalls of great natural beauty. One of the reasons for waking up early on this day is precisely to visit the park in the morning and avoid the large number of people visiting it.

Thus, by late morning, we will finish our visit on foot and go to the hotel. Typical lunch before time to relax.

By mid-afternoon we will visit a hidden place, far away from the crowds, where we will be able to dive in its crystalline waters.

Walk in Plitivice Lakes: 9,3 miles / slope +450m -450m / approx. 5-6 hours

Dia 3 Velebit Mountains - Krk Islands

After breakfast, we will drive 1.5 hours by road to the Velebit Mountains, a spectacular mountain range located in central Croatia that will allow us to enjoy beautiful views of the Adriatic Sea coastline. Velebit belongs to the Dinaric Alps mountain range and includes interesting habitats of rock formations, extensive forests, and alpine peaks with views from 1700 meters to the Mediterranean islands.

We will take a circular hike in this beautiful mountainous region and then follow the route to the coastal region. We will board a private boat to explore the islands situated in the Northern Adriatic and where we will have the opportunity for a swim in a bay of crystal clear water.

The boat ride will last about 3 and a half hours before we head for the island of Krk.

Walk in the Velebit Mountains: 7,5 miles / slope +500m -500m / approx. 4-5 hours

Dia 4 Krk Island, hiking and visit to Baska

Today we will start walking from the lodge to the town of Baska. We will follow a trail through muddy terrain through the southern part of the island, which will give us a different perspective of this Croatian island with views of the mainland coast crowned by the well-known Velebit mountains.

We will return to Baska for a lunch based on local products such as fish and seafood. The afternoon is free to enjoy Baska, swim in its waters or optionally rent kayaks to explore the calm waters off the coast of Krk Island. If we have time, we will visit the charming town of Vrbnik or Krk for dinner. This dinner is at the traveler's expense.

Dia 5 Cres Island, hiking and swimming - Losinj Island

If we wake up early, we can take a hike to one of the main viewpoints on the island of Krk, with views of the Baska region and the island of Prvic, located near Krk. Back to the lodge for breakfast and a last swim on the island before we take the ferry to the Cres Island.

We will soon feel the difference between the two islands, as Cres is more forested, especially with pine trees, but where we will be able to see other examples of Adriatic flora. We will drive to the small town of Lubenice, located on a hillside, where we will have lunch.

After lunch, we'll go on foot, for about 45 minutes, to the famous Lubenice beach. We'll be rewarded by light colored sand and turquoise waters. We will continue to explore this coastal region, where bays and coves of great beauty will lead us to a fishing boat that will take us back to the port, where refreshing drinks await us in a nearby bar.

Today we will still go to the Lojinj Island, where our accommodation is located and in which we will spend the next two nights.

Walk in Cres Island: 5 miles / slope +160m -160m / approx. 3 hours.

After the hike, we will drive to the small town of Osor for the last lunch on the islands. If we have time, we will take one last swim in the Adriatic before continuing to Zagreb where we will arrive in the late afternoon.

We will also have a cool drink or an ice cream with the guide before the farewell.
