Walking holidays in Croatia
Croatia, possibly the oddest shaped country in Europe, has distinctive areas, but walkers will know best its long Adriatic coastline and islands. This is a proper focus for our two routes. Istria, in the far north west, has more in common with Slovenia and Italy than with the rest of the country, from which it is separated by high mountains. The little hilltop towns and vineyards could be Tuscan, but after the ascent of Mt. Ucka the descent to the sea at Moscenicka Draga is decidedly Adriatic.
Dubrovnik and the Elafiti islands in the far south are very different. The city has a noble history over millennia, and this shows in its architecture. The islands are green and restful; the walking modest and more a way to get to the next beach or restaurant than a hike.
