The Area



Split Town Centre



Split Town Centre



You'll be picked up from the start point and returned there at the end of the trip. It is a 25 minute taxi from the airport to the town centre (not included). Because of the early start, your host recommends that you arrive in Split the night before. You are free to book any departing flight that leaves after 20:30.

Travel options

There are regular flights to Split from airports across the UK and Europe.

What about all the carbon?

We mitigate 4x the carbon generated by all our customer flights annually through our partnership with Cool Earth.

What is the accommodation like?

Camping Stobreč

You'll stay in a comfortable, twin, triple or quad cabin with the sea on two sides and the Žrnovnica River mouth on the third. Each cabin is equipped with a kitchen, bathroom, satellite TV, air conditioning and a lovely terrace. Bed linen and a towel per person are provided. There is also a restaurant, a pool and a masseuse on the grounds.

Day 1

Cetina River and LED night tour

Stand Up Paddleboarding


Meet your host in Split town centre and drive to your base at Camping Stobreč. Paddle onto the Cetina River from the former pirate town of Omiš and explore a beautiful combination of sea, river and mountains. Glide through the fast-moving canyon, stop where the river meets the sea and return to the campsite for lunch and a chance to explore the beach. Set off around sunset and paddle the Dalmatian waters by moonlight using a unique LED board that illuminates the mysterious undersea world around you. Head back to camp and get a good night’s rest ready for more adventure tomorrow.

Day 2

Volcanos, golden beaches and home

Stand Up Paddleboarding


Grab your board and circumnavigate an inactive volcano. Paddle the warm, still waters to the sound of crickets and birds and watch as the sun peeking through the trees of the Marjan Forest Park creates a light show of colours on the surface. Stop at a series of beautiful beaches and the Sustipan cliffs, snorkel and maybe try a little cliff jumping. Return to Split for a traditional Croatian lunch and then head back to the airport in time for your flight home.

Please Note

All our adventures take place in wild places. Things can go wrong in wild places. Your perfectly planned itinerary may change a bit (or a lot) if the weather turns, someone gets hurt, or a volcano erupts. Usually though, changes make it all the better.
