On a self-guided, non-group walking holiday in Croatia, we provide our carefully compiled route notes and maps, and arrange luggage transfers, so that you can walk from one hotel of character to the next at entirely your own pace, relaxed and carefree.
Thanks to the benign climate and scenery of rolling olive groves and vineyards, rugged mountains, secluded valleys and a jagged coastline washed by cobalt-blue seas, walking in Croatia is highly rewarding. In keeping with our Slow holiday philosophy, our carefully thought-out routes (described in easy-to-follow notes) allow plenty of time to appreciate your surroundings. And because there’s no group, no arrangements to make (we do all that), and no luggage, you can be spontaneous, stopping off in a charming village or lingering over lunch.
Walking in Croatia’s north-western corner, the heart-shaped Istrian Peninsula, is a revelation. In the course of just one week, you’ll discover lush green landscapes, enchanting hill-top villages, and an alluring coastline, as you cross the breadth of the peninsula to finish on the eastern seaboard.
