Croatia Travel Advice
Istria, one of Croatia’s premier winemaking regions, was named one of the 2015 World Top 10 travel destinations by Wine Enthusiast magazine. But Istria is just one of several wine-making regions in Croatia. Because of its small geographic nature, the wine regions offer many tours and tastings, most of which are accessible by bike, a perfect way to taste your way through some of the country’s best wine.
With over a thousand islands and a thousand miles of coastline, Croatia is one of the best places in the world to go sailing. You can spend a week island hopping, swimming, and snorkeling in the blue Adriatic sea, and visit ancient Greek and Roman towns where you can enjoy a cycling, wine tasting or sea kayaking tour.
Stroll around the medieval town centers of Dubrovnik, Hvar, and Zadar (especially after midnight). Travel like a local by hitting the hippest spots in Croatia. These are some of the best places to see and be seen--by day or after dark--in cities across Croatia.
Whether you enjoy the adrenaline rush of a whitewater rapid or the sheer face of a rock wall, Croatia can deliver a satisfying active vacation. The destinations below are the source of some of Croatia’s best outdoor adventures.
