If you’re an adventure seeker and haven’t been on a Croatia city break yet, it’s high time you did something about it. Not only does this country boast astonishing natural beauty, great food and a friendly atmosphere, there’s also plenty on offer when it comes to sport and leisure activities for adrenaline junkies.

Here are some of the best places for active adventurers to visit while on a Croatia city break and the range of activities available.

Up the Mountains

Croatia’s diverse landscape allows for all sorts of thrilling sports, but travellers are often attracted to the climbing opportunities around Omis and the popular Paklenica National Park. These areas boast tall mountains ideal for climbing and abseiling, and although some routes can take several hours to complete, the views from the summits of Croatia’s great peaks are well worth the hard work.

In the Air

Can’t get enough of the country’s great views? Then go higher! Daredevils should head to Crikvenica or the Cetina River Canyon on their Croatia city break. There you can zip line high above sea level at thrilling speeds, fly hundreds of metres across the greenery and admire the stunning surroundings from a whole new perspective.

Still not high enough? There are several spots around the country offering paragliding experiences, so pluck up some courage, get strapped into the harness and enjoy an adventure like no other. Bungee jumping and skydiving are also available in various areas including Split, Zagreb and Sibenik.

On the Water

Those who like to get wet and wild during their holiday simply must try white water rafting. Head to the Cetina River or the Zrmanja River to enjoy a thrilling raft experience featuring stunning waterfalls, interesting caves and plenty of picture-perfect views. Routes vary in terms of length and difficulty, so be sure to consider your group’s capabilities before you go!

For something a little calmer, try sea kayaking around Dubrovnik. This makes for a great day out with family or friends on a Croatia city break.

On Land

Caving is another popular activity among visitors to this wonderful country, but it’s not advised if you dislike confined spaces! Many places have caves open for exploration, but one of the very best is Modric Cave near Zadar. Featuring interesting rock formations, stalagmites, stalactites and chambers up to ten metres high, this cave really is a must see.

Visit Cave Park Grabovaca or Festinsko Kraljevstvo for even more exciting caving adventures.

Wherever you choose to travel on your Croatia city break, you’re sure to find plenty of opportunities for action and adventure. Whether you fancy crawling through caves, flying through the air or racing down rapids, this holiday is sure to be one you’ll remember.
