This active week in Croatian countryside offers families the opportunity to explore this incredible country on foot, by bike and kayak.

  • Go kayaking through a canyon
  • Splash about in waterfalls
  • Discover magical landscapes
  • Explore unspoilt forests
  • Walk in a beautiful national park
  • Cycle through Croatian countryside

Clear azul waters, unspoilt pine forest and magical landscapes make this area one of Croatia’s most desirable destinations. Your family activity holiday takes you on a journey on the Mreznica River, through Plitvice Lakes National Park and along the Korana River canyon.

The Mreznica is considered to be one of Croatia's cleanest rivers, offering plenty of great places for splashing about in the water. At 64 kilometres long, it is particularly special with its 93 waterfalls and pools of warm water, perfect for swimming away from beach crowds.
