Q: When is the best time to visit Croatia?
A: Some of our tours can be booked through the year, like gastro and wine experience. For Adventurous tours our season is May to September in most areas. We start operating selected trips and tours in April and continue until October. May is usually warm enough for swimming in Dalmatia. Croatia gets busy in July and August during school holidays. September tends to be warm and sunny and the crowds are usually gone by then.
Q: What is the weather like?
A: Spring and Fall – 40-65 F, Summer 65-90 F, Winter 30-45 F, with the slight differences in Continental from Coastal Croatia.
Q: I have special dietary preferences. Can you cater to vegetarian, vegan, gluten free etc. diets?
A: Yes, we can, but we have to have prior notice especially if you are going to go on our adventure tours. In certain areas vegan, gluten free etc. snacks in local shops will be limited so we recommend bringing your own. We do ask to keep your requests realistic as in some of the areas where we run our trips it is very difficult to prepare special meals.
Q: Can I join a river trip if I’m not a good swimmer?
A: Yes you can. All our guests on river trips have to wear buoyancy aids that keep you afloat in the water and help you swim. Also, you should tell your guides if you are not confident in the water.
Q: What should we bring, do we need water shoes?
A: Bring some extra dry clothes to change after the trip, some snack food and water. In case you have water shoes it would be great to bring them and if not, we will provide them. Towel and a bathing suit plus a t-shirt is all you need.
