About Program

This program is for students who are excited to participate in outdoor adventure activities and be immersed in Croatian culture and daily life. We begin with a week-long stay in Zagreb, Croatia’s capital city. From Zagreb, we do a full-day trip to Plitvice Lakes National Park, famous for its waterfalls and natural dams. From Zagreb, we also hike nearby Mt. Medvednica and spend the night in a mountain lodge. We then continue on to the Istrian Peninsula for several days----Istria has strong Italian influences, particularly in its cuisine (Istria was part of Italy from 1919-1947). From there, we spend 10 days exploring the Dalmatian Coast while participating in various outdoor activities — sea kayaking, cycling, hiking, swimming/snorkeling, intro to rock climbing, camping, ziplining, etc. We’ll visit markets, seaside towns and villages, and the Island of Hvar. The final stop is Dubrovnik, a medieval city famous for its ancient walls and World Heritage sites. Call us for more details!
