Croatia & Montenegro: Kayak & Hike the Best of the Balkans
Paddle the Sun-Soaked Adriatic & Explore the Wild High Country of Durmitor National Park
Few places on earth rival the Dalmatian Coast for sea kayaking. With more than 1,200 islands and reefs from Croatia to Montenegro, it's perfect for a paddling idyll. And the scenery is the best in the Mediterranean, with rocky headlands, sandy beaches, turquoise bays, and red-roofed towns that cascade to the sea. Our base is a deluxe private sailing catamaran from which we launch our kayaks at a new destination each day, navigating intimate coves and grottoes and exploring ashore on foot. Dubrovnik and the villages of ancient Dalmatia are a highlight, too—cultural and architectural treasures as seductive as the landscape and sea. But we don't stop there: this unique adventure also includes two days in Montenegro's Durmitor National Park, hiking amid lakes, mountains and some of the deepest gorges on earth, and kayaking in stunning Kotor Bay.
