Croatia is special country for many reasons and one of them is its extremely rich diversity of natural environments gathered in a very small area. If we cross about 15 kilometres from Lika over one of the Velebit passes to the Adriatic coast, we will pass through a large number of climatic, relief and biological units. Such areas are exceptional travel meccas, especially for those who want to travel actively and spend time in nature. The Four Seasons of Croatia program, therefore, uses the relief and climatic diversity of Croatia, which conditions exceptional diversity in the appearance of landscapes between lowland coastal areas with heat and lush vegetation and those in higher mountain areas. The gradual increase in the altitude of the program alternates the landscapes from sunny coast to eternal snow and ice, and thus the activities that travellers engage in.
