Expect a true Adriatic adventure. Croatia is one of the best Sea Kayaking region in Mediterranean and we will combine it with hiking. Our base will be island of Levrnaka in the heart of Kornati National Park, where we will set a camp which brings another dimension to our sea kayaking adventure. Kornati islands are really unique and different than any other island or archipelago in the area. On one side they are close to land and civilization but on the other they are remote and unexploited. Life here is slow and in coexistence with nature. There are around 90 islands on a small area, sea kayaking between them is spectacular and impressive, especially when one paddles under 180 meter cliffs. Views and sunsets on Kornati are really spectacular and we will hike to the best places to enjoy and admire this pristine and untouched paradise.
Sea kayaking adventure around Kornati archipelago demands some physical condition as we will be active from 3 to sometimes also 8 hours a day. Besides seakayaking, there will also be quite some hiking, as well as swimming and snorkeling. Otherwise If you are in good condition you can be a first-time paddler to join us.
Minimum 4 people
We will meet in Zadar, Croatia and sail to Kornati Zadar (Sv. Filip Jakov) in early morning, by motor vessel. On our 4 hour passage to Levrnaka where we will set up camp, we will sail among different islands and islets. Our first mission after arrival will be setting up camp and after the rest of the day will be free to explore the wilderness of the island and some swimming on a beautiful Caribbean-like beach Lojena, just meters from the camp. For dinner we will meet in a family tavern, where we will also have short briefing about adventure that is ahead of us.
Strong breakfast is a must and after that we will go through some paddling techniques and safety measures. On a first day we will paddle to island of Kornat, where we will visit Fort Tureta from 6th century and little church called Tarca, Queen of the sea from Byzantine era. After that we will paddle to nearby cove of Kravljačica and hike to the highest peak of Kornati islands, Metlina (237m). From top you can see the whole Kornati archipelago as well as some other islands and mainland. After our descent we will enjoy life on a beach in Kravljačica and later paddle back to our camp for a dinner and a good night sleep.
Today our kayaks will take us to nature park Telaščica, amazing place that borders with Kornati. When we reach Lojišće Cove on Dugi otok, we will lift our kayaks out of water and hike to Lake Mir and to the top of big 186m cliffs that we will paddle under later. Afterwards we will paddle back to camp.
Today we will paddle south, first to mysterious island of Mana where there are remains of a fort at the top of the cliff. Mana will also impress you with its 1350m long cliff crown. We will continue towards island Piškera where we wil have lunch while listening to a story about islands history. Back in 16th century Piškera was fishing village with some 40 houses. Remains of this Roman village can still be seen in the sea. After some rest we will continue to beautiful bay on island Lavsa where we will set a camp for the night.
It’s time to go back to our camp, but the route will first take us to Veli Rašip and its turquoise waters.
Today is reserved for short kayak trip or resting on our “home” beach Lojena. In the evening we will visit Mana once again for a stunning sunset where you can collect your impressions in peace and stunning view. One last dinner awaits us and hopefully long night of stories and impressions.
It’s time to pack and sail back to reality. Arrival in Zadar is planned for 1:00pm or by agreement.
