If the date you’ve chosen indicates it’s an early bird, it means you’re one of the first 4 people to book this adventure and you’ll enjoy $50-$100 off your adventure. Don’t book your flights just yet, we’ll let you know once there are 3+ early birds and we can confirm your Flash Pack adventure.
If the date you’ve selected indicates it’s on ‘final call’, this means the adventure is departing soon or is nearly full. We will therefore need to confirm your place with our local team. Book to secure your place, but please do not book your international flights until we contact you. Your payment will be held during the process, but not taken until your place is confirmed. We’ll aim to get back to you within 3 business days.
A trip being listed as an insider means it’s our very first departure for this adventure, so we’re looking for open-minded individuals who won’t mind if things don’t go 100% according to plan. In exchange for the discount you see, we’ll be asking for detailed daily feedback that we can use to improve our adventures. It’s not for everyone, so please go to our insider page to learn more.
If the date you’ve selected indicates the trip is guaranteed, this means your chosen adventure is definitely going ahead. Once you’ve secured your spot, you can book your flights right away.
ABOUT THIS TRIP
Five days, five exhilarating opportunities for you to delve beneath the surface of Croatia.
This adventure will see you kayak down the sparkling Mrežnica River and hike around the UNESCO lagoons of Plitvice Lakes National Park. You’ll indulge in Zagreb’s craft beer scene and sample artisanal cheeses. All before unwinding on the beautiful beaches of Hvar and soaking up the cultural sights of Split.
The ultimate Croatian combination? We think so.

Day 01 Touch down in Zagreb
Croatia’s cultured capital is home to Austro-Hungarian architecture, gothic churches and cafe-lined streets – and it’s the perfect place to begin your Adriatic adventure. Upon arrival, take a private transfer to your central hotel, where you’ll meet your fellow travelers and dedicated guide. Head out together for an afternoon of sightseeing, before winding your way to one of Zagreb’s finest beer-tasting bars for a relaxing first evening.
Day 02 Kayaking in Mrežnica
Swap beer for cheese this morning, as you make your way to a family farm nestled in the village of Točak. Here, you’ll learn how traditional crafting materials are used to produce eight different types of cheese – and you’ll try them all (it’s only right). Afterward, venture forth into Mrežnica, with its emerald rivers and secluded forests, where this afternoon’s kayaking adventure will take place. Enjoy a picnic lunch by a cascading waterfall, with hours ahead to paddle down the river, wild swim in natural pools and leap from white cliffs (fully compliant with health and safety, of course).
Day 03 Nature walks in Plitvice Lakes National Park
Plitvice Lakes National Park is a region of forested beauty, famous for its shimmering lagoons and waterfalls. Spend today exploring the natural splendour of this UNESCO World Heritage Site before continuing onwards to the coastal city of Split. Check into your chic hotel and bathe in the outdoor jacuzzi, or (our recommendation) head out for a glass of Croatian wine by the harbour with your fellow travellers.
Day 04 Beach time in beautiful Hvar
Take this morning to explore Split at your own pace, meandering through its seafront cafes and boutiques. Then, head down to the port and catch a ferry over to Hvar – an island that has been hailed as the new St Tropez. Amble through the charming streets of its hillside town, hidden behind 13th-century fortress walls. Savor an Aperol spritz in one of the island’s many pavement cafes, or wander down to its beaches to soak up the sun.
Day 05 Farewell Split - and Dubrovnik calling?
We recommend booking a later flight out today so that you can join our final-day walking tour of the cathedrals and alleyways of Split. Then, it’s over to you to make your own way to the airport. If Dubrovnik takes your interest, take a look at our Coastal Croatian itinerary, which will see you journey from Split to Dubrovnik over five days.

Why we stay here
Friendly staff and fantastic food are the mainstays here. There’s also a wellness zone with a treatment room and a salt therapy suite. And there’s a petting zoo (yes, really).
Fly into Zagreb Airport (ZAG) and out of Split Airport (SPU).
Please try to arrive in Zagreb before 3pm on day 1, although we will arrange a transfer for you at whichever time you arrive.
Feel free to depart at your own leisure on day 5, but we recommend taking an afternoon flight so you can join our walking tour of Split on the final morning.
Please be aware that the itinerary, activities and hotels are subject to change. These changes can happen with little notice due to availability, poor weather, seasonal changes, or other circumstances beyond our control – but we’ll always do our best to ensure it has little impact on your experience. From time to time, we may also make changes to your itinerary to try out new ideas and keep things fresh and exciting.
