Discovering Croatia’s natural wonders

Visiting Plitvice Lakes National Park, oldest, largest and most visited in Croatia

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.

Hi everybody! I just wanted to let you know that we landed safely and are still mesmerised by our holiday. We enjoyed it every step of the way. We’re so sad it ended. So, thank you for the organization and being so cooperative entire time.

Where to begin?! What a wonderful experience. We had a great time in Dubrovnik. Special thanks to Tomislav who is so knowledgeable and kind. Restaurants in the city and in Konavle are just great. The dinner on the top station of the cable car with that panorama is something we will remember for the rest of our lives.

Top professionals, always available, answering e-mails in an extremely short time. Full of knowledge about the country that they very happily shared with me.

You guys look like you’re on a mission there.

I would like to thank you for the planning and organization. Special thanks for your support in transferring my buddy to hospital. We felt very confident during whole program because of you. Sorry for constant changes on our part and thank you indeed for your tremendous patience.

Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. I just found the time to arrange my Croatian memories and souvenirs. I truly enjoyed my journey through Croatia, in great part because of you doing a great job. My husband na I felt that we were in safe hands all of the time, even when we had to rearrange our schedule because of weather it was done so easy and without stress. We will recommend both you and your country to our friends. Especially Korcula 😊!

Totally surprised with wine range and quality you have in Croatia. Couldn’t decide between Greece and Croatia this year, but am so glad to choose the latter. Your service was great, quick and what I like the most are suggestions where to go and warnings what to avoid, which is quite rare.

Thank you very much for organising my travel. You made me very, very happy. I’m not easy customer to be around, but just couldn’t find anything to whine about. My mother instilled in me a love for travel! I’m very thankful for that, among other reason, because of trips like this one and experiences like I had with you.

Thank you for a wonderful program! It’s definitely one of the best travels of MY LIFE. We were never bored and yet had enough time for ourselves, felt alive and aware during entire journey. We came back home rejuvenated, ready to start planning another journey like this.

You guys made us feel at home during our Croatian tour. Local guides in Dubrovnik and Split were just phenomenal. We stayed in touch. And everything else was great, Croatia must be a great country to live in.
