Croatia’s natural beauty makes it one of the best destinations for outdoor activities like relaxing on the beach and admiring cultural wonders. Untouched sandy beaches, the magnificent wonder of the Krka Waterfalls and whitewater rafting on the emerald-green Cetina River are just the beginning of a perfect coastal getaway.
Student travel company Smart Trip offers a convenient way to reach the country and an itinerary that covers must-see locations and exciting activities. The tour focuses on the medieval port town of Split located on Croatia’s pristine Dalmatian coast.
On the first day, Smart Trip organizes an optional whitewater rafting trip on the Cetina River, an adventurous and scenic experience through one of Croatia’s great natural landmarks. Other adventures lay ahead, like spending the day laying on one of Split’s beaches, touring the Split’s historic city center, visiting the Diocletian Palace, renting a bike and riding up Marjan Hill, or taking a day trip to the local surrounding towns, such as Omiš or the Krka Waterfalls.
Omiš, located 25 kilometers from Split, can be accessed by the local bus, and is the place where the Cetina River meets the sea.
