Captivating Croatia - Energy Index

Your hikes are easy to moderate, under 6 miles per day, sometimes over uneven terrain. Walking in the towns and villages also often involves navigating over uneven stone streets or through ancient ruins. Expect multiple ferry rides, and a boat ride to Biševo island across waters that can be choppy at times.

Make this trip all yours!

Most all of our Small Group Adventures can be made private to just your traveling troupe. Just give us a call at (800) 445-2995 and tell us that you would like to “make it private”!

Generally, there are two ways to make a small group adventure private. First, you could capture one of our published departure dates for just your group. In order to achieve this, we have to have sufficient space available to create a separate private trip. Second, we could take the details of this itinerary and fashion it for just your group on dates of your choosing. For this, too, we just need to review your interest, group size, and preferred timing in order to create the trip.

In all cases, the process begins with a phone call so give us a ring at (800) 445-2995 and after just a few minutes gathering information, we can set to the task of making your trip a reality!

They were bent […]

As fall settles over Southcentral Alaska in a brief burst of gold, birches gleam against the dark spruce that cover the lower slopes of the Kenai Mountains.
