Croatia walking tour.
  • Jacket – warm, wind & waterproof, soft-shell,
  • comfortable clothes,
  • sunglasses, sunscreen, lip balm, any other sun protection,
  • water bottle (preferably reusable),
  • first aid (a small basic kit with items such as bandages, antiseptic wipes, gauze, antibacterial ointment, sterile pads),
  • large backpack to pack all your belongings,
  • hiking shoes –  choose wisely!

IMPORTANT: Appropriate footwear is essential part of any hiking tour. There are a variety of models on the market designed to meet the needs of different types of hikers; the challenge is finding the one that works best for your purposes.

For hiking the islands: Choose softer and more flexible hiking shoes, appropriate for longer walks. Those shoes are typically made of breathable material, are comfortable and do not require breaking in. Shoes like that are usually not waterproof, but Croatia during the summertime has very little rain and the odds are good that during your tour, there will be no rain.

For hiking the Biokovo mountains: Choose hiking boots that have good ankle support and are well protective on a rough, rocky terrain. Hiking boots are typically heavier and have stiffer soles and sides as well as a reinforced, protected toe area. Those kinds of boots take time to break in. You should not go on multi-day trekking with brand new boots!! Before you hit the trail, make sure to break them in properly, to avoid serious blisters and other unnecessary pain.

  • The tour is considered to be moderate to challenging. There is an average of 4-5 hours of hiking each day with many ascends and descends. A good physical condition is essential.
  • Make sure you take sufficient water/drinks on a trip every day.
  • Breakfast is included in every accommodation.
  • We advise that you to start your daily trips early in the morning to allow yourself enough time to stop often and enjoy the scenery and escape the hot summer sun!
  • In case bad weather is predicted, do not forget to bring your rain-covers and a change of extra dry clothes. We also advise that you to  place pack things in plastic bags before packing them in the backpack.
  • All customers are required  to notify us before booking the tour of  any medical conditions, as well as  dietary restrictions. If you suffer from any medical conditions, we strongly suggest that you consult your physician before booking a tour to receive an expert medical advice. We are more than happy to discuss and recommend the most suitable adventure for you based on your conditions, but cannot ultimately be responsible for your health.

Croatian coast has a typically Mediterranean climate consisting of hot, dry, sunny weather during summer.

Average temperatures during summer lies in the high 20s °C, although it is more likely that you’ll have temperatures well into the 30s °C.

The sunniest island in Croatia is Hvar, with over 2,700 hours of sun per year. Split, Vela Luka (on the island of Korčula) and Dubrovnik are the next sunniest spots in Dalmatia.

Croatia boasts very low humidity, sitting at about 60%, so even in the scorching sun the heat is bearable.

We suggest that you travel with a comprehensive travel insurance, including emergency evacuation coverage. We strongly recommend that you purchase travel insurance that includes cancellation protection so that you will be covered in the event that you are unable to attend our trip (due to injury, illness or other unforeseen circumstances). We do not provide travel insurance for our clients. Please contact your local travel agent to purchase travel insurance. As coverage and a price of the insurance changes depending on your travel destination, do make sure that you purchase a coverage for all countries you will be traveling in on your adventure.

A good physical condition is essential.
