There is of course the Croatian coast, its beaches, its coves, its islands, but that's not all!

To miss out on the splendours of the interior of the country would be a real shame!

Nature lovers as well as sports enthusiasts will find what they are looking for...

Plitvice Lakes and Waterfalls

One of the wonders of Croatia.

Located in the north of Dalmatia, this succession of about fifteen lakes is totally fascinating, because these rocks called Dolomite constantly change configuration (you have to go around and get lost in this abundance of waterfalls and torrents).

It's splendid, surrounded by lush vegetation, hundreds of shades of blues and greens and incredibly cool (these are natural springs).

Entrance to the park is around 100 kuna (14€). Apparently there are discounts off season and for young people up to 18 years old.

The paths are marked, there is no problem to walk around and get lost as you want throughout the park.

In case of fatigue, there is also the possibility of taking public transport (shuttles, boats, etc.).

We advise you to venture far enough, to avoid the crowds (but it goes up from time to time: up to more than 800m in altitude).

Attention, it is a very well preserved park, swimming, fishing, etc... is prohibited.

As for accommodation in the area, we found a great campsite that we recommend.

Very large and comfortable, but unfortunately very steep (which also gives it its charm…). Not too expensive (equivalent of 25€ for 2). See web address.

Rafting in Omis

Omis is a small town on the coast, a little lower than Split. It may go unnoticed at first glance, but it is not.

It is indeed the starting point for many sporting hikes, from the most zen to the most extreme!

It is here that the Cetina river has its source, not far from the Biokovo massif. Here you can exercise with joy the delights of rafting, canyoning, mountain biking, climbing...

The Cetina River varies greatly as it extends.

In the more southern regions, it is generally composed of rapids, and extends into a deep ravine, surrounded by quite dangerous rocks (slippery and sharp).

In the northernmost region, the river is much slower, like a lake (ideal for kayaking), with the high canyon faces looming on either side.

It is therefore of course in Omis that you will have to find out about the necessary equipment, guides, rentals, etc. For a sporty and unforgettable ride!

We have nevertheless found some web addresses to give you an overview.
