Sail around Kornati National Park – known as Croatia’s “nautical paradise” – and disembark on the colorful island of Cres and then the largest island, Krk.

Krk: Krk Island Tour featuring Kornic Ethnographic

  • Enjoy a morning tour of the quaint Kornic Ethnographic Collection, where you will tour a two-story family house. Complete with antique furniture, utensils, and tools, the home reflects a bygone era where family members farmed, cooked, cleaned, sewed, and performed all housekeeping duties by hand. You will then travel to Punat, a village located in a serene and well-protected bay that has served as a safe-haven for ships, fishermen, and sailors for centuries. It is also home to the oldest and largest marina on the Adriatic Sea. From Punat, you’ll embark on a taxi-boat and head to the small, but beautiful, island Košljun — an island covered by dense forest and over 400 different species of mushrooms. The centerpiece of our visit to Košljun is the pristine fifteenth-century Franciscan monastery. Inside, a dazzling collection of folk costumes and rare Glagolitic manuscripts awaits. Duration approximately 3 hour(s). Transportation is included. A minimum of 10 passenger(s) is required to operate this option.


Sibenik: Krka National Park Tour

  • This guided tour takes you through 2 square kilometers of the blue-green splendor of Krka National Park, a 109-square kilometer paradise along the Krka River. At the river banks, you can get an up-close look at several perfectly preserved ecosystems including a vast floral composition along the Tufa waterfalls. A highlight of this excursion is a revitalizing round-trip walk along the river’s longest waterfall, Skradinski Buk - one of the best-known natural beauties of Croatia that is best seen at the end of the walk. Krka National Park is home to the first European hydroelectric power plant – a now historical site – and provided the first source of electricity to the city of Sibenik, thanks to Nikola Tesla. During your guided tour, you’ll also visit the Ethnic Village where inside you’ll find a traditional folk village complete with mills, souvenir shops, and ethnographic exhibition venues. Your time in Krka National Park will end with a scenic boat ride along the river to Skradin, where the Krka River meets with the Adriatic Sea. The coach will then bring you back to your cruise ship. Duration approximately 3.5 hour(s). Transportation is included. A minimum of 10 passenger(s) is required to operate this option.

    This tour operates on a weather-permitting basis.
