Walking Holidays in Croatia, Accommodation, Croatian Holidays




Everyone from Sunday Times readers to Lonely Planet Scribes - have voted it their number one absolute favourite for a Mediterranean Escape - Yes I am talking about CROATIA!

Conjure up this picture:
Hazy Medieval towns, a glittering constellation of islands (over 1,000 actually) washed by super clean seas, sensational diving and the charmingly unfussy lifestyle. Croatia is the Med as it used to be, an idyll of yesteryear.

Croatia was part of the old Yugoslavia, which was a very popular holiday destination for the U.K. market up to 1990.

Then the Balkan War happened and interest declined. However, the fight back has started with marked success, increased numbers of tourists are returning, helped along by the budget airlines offering competitive prices. Also, Croatia has applied for E.U. and NATO membership.

This brings us to ‘Footsteps in Croatia’. We are a small independent company working in association with our Agents in Croatia - LIKVA AGENCY - who are an outdoor event specialist providing mountain biking/all manner of water sports/mountaineering and of course trekking - all the guides speak English. We are a married couple who have travelled extensively. A few years ago events took place which changed the direction of our lives - we were both made redundant, within a month of each other! Being in our mid-50’s we took the decision to do what we enjoy most which is walking and showing like-minded people the Beauty of these Islands.

We embarked on putting together a weekly programme of walks on the Island, staying in a family run Guest House, Apartment or Hotel. Packed lunches are provided on all full day walks (Brac only) - five evening meals are taken at Dora's, leaving you free to try one of the old Konaba's (Restaurants) on your free days.

Our package is fully inclusive of airport pick-ups (from Split for Brac and Dubrovnik for Mljet), accomadation on half board basis and guided walks for five days. (Air fare is not included but we can provide information as to which Airlines/Airports offer cheap flights).

This kind of holiday makes a refreshing change from mass tourism as you are in contact throughout your holiday with local people.
