Description

Join me on this 8-day guided hiking tour and discover the Mediterranean charm of the old picturesque towns of Dalmatia and its beautiful landscape diversity.

Dalmatia is the whole southern region of Croatia, a narrow belt of the east shore of the Adriatic Sea, stretching from Zadar in the north to Dubrovnik in the south. It is a sun-drenched region, known for one of the most beautiful landscapes in Croatia, including high mountain ranges, islands and a beautiufl coast line.

We will fly directly to Split, the largest city in Dalmatia. In good weather, the flight is already a great experience, with a great view over the Alps from above. From Split a shuttle bus will take us to Omiš.  We will be staying in a single hotel here for the whole time.

Omis is a small beautiful town and harbor, located where the Cetina River meets the Adriatic Sea. It is about 25 kilometres from Split. From our hotel, we will make star-shaped hikes in the region. You can check the detailed itinerary below.

In order to get to the starting/ending point of the hikes we will sometimes take a private bus, so we can enjoy the hikes with a light daypack. Every day you can decide whether you want to participate in the hike or do something different on your own. Outside of the bustling cities, we will have time for hiking, experiencing nature, the silence and seclusion of the area.

The unique location of the family-run hotel allows us to enjoy a magnificent view of the old town of Omiš and the sea, as well as the Cetina gorge. Omiš is a small town with a variety of grocery stores and restaurants. The shops and restaurants are within easy walking distance.

We will be hiking for about 3 to 5 hours every day. This is is a hike of easy/intermediate level. We will walk on mostly good trails in open terrain, with partly karstic paths and isolated trackless sections.

I am a multilingual hiking guide and I have personally organized this trip. As a grop tour, this will be the first trip, so it has some special pioneering character.
