This sea kayaking adventure in North Croatia is foreseen for people with average physical fitness. Experienced paddlers are welcomed as well. For more experienced groups we can change the itinerary and paddle to neighbor Islands. Every day we will discover something new while our guides will tell you stories and legends. We will have few chances to get some fresh supplies and load the necessary equipment on the way. We will be spending nights camping in secluded bays by campfire and grill (campfire only in April and October departures). For exercising and resting from sitting in the kayak we have prepared for you several trekking routes,so if we’ll find time we’ll hike a bit. If you prefer resting and swimming, we have chosen for you the best and most beautiful beaches. Here we also have different games for fun such as Frisbee, volleyball or sand football or Croatian picigin. We will explore caves and dive in them, swim in the turquoise colors of the crystal clear sea, walking along beautiful forest paths, snorkel in the nature park Fjord Zavratnica, observing birds and other animals and many other nature related activities. We’ll also visit the two other Islands on the North side of Rab -The Goli Otok and St.Grgur Island known as a former political prison Islands, now closed

After breakfast we’ll paddle to Draga to visit the Old Water Mill…. then paddle to Tunera pier, which was built during the 1760’s for Tuna fishing. We’ll follow the NW coat to reach cape Sorinj where we’ll enjoy in lunch and swim in turquoise sea. We’ll than cross the bay of Lopar to reach and explore its sandy bays and beaches before we set camp for overnight.
On the third day we’ll paddle to the Island of St. Gregory and shortly paddle the coastline before we set off to notorious Island of Goli Otok. Both of the Islands were political prisons but our guides will tell you more about it. We’ll have a short visit to the ruins of the prison and have coffee break. After lunch and sightseeing we’ll paddle back to Grgur Island and explore its NE side, crowned by high cliffs. After reaching the main bay we’ll set up our tents and have dinner.*
