Sports facilities and adrenaline park

From Crikvenica in the North to Makarska and Brač in the South, an active vacation like no other awaits the adventurous traveler.

Crikvenica Riviera

Adrenaline Park Crikvenica

The large playground of the Adrenaline Park Crikvenica is located at the heart of the Riviera, close to Hotel Omorika and Hotel and Resort Ad Turres and just 50 meters from the shore.

A great addition to your next team-building itinerary and an interesting opportunity for some outdoor fun with family or friends. Visit the park, have fun, show off your skills, and spend some quality time outdoors.

The park offers a great selection of activities to try your hand in. They include paintball, Sumo wrestling, Tree climbing, Cage football, and many more.

Cycling the Crikvenica Riviera

Riding on a bicycle is one of the best ways to get to know Crikvenica Riviera, whether you are an enthusiast or a seasoned cyclist. The mild climate of Kvarner will not restrict your adventures to only the summer season, so you can plan your trip almost year-round.

The choice of trails is extremely varied, so you are bound to find the level of challenge you enjoy the most. Rugged hillside routes run 1200 meters above sea level, while Vinodol valley offers a scenic route on flat terrain. Both will take you through some of the most beautiful countrysides, interesting small towns and villages, where you can see firsthand the traditional, relaxed way of life of this part of the world.

If you decide to ride by yourself, we recommend sticking to one of the 6 marked routes. If you would prefer to join a group, several cycling clubs offer guided tours and all the equipment you might need.

Hiking the Crikvenica Riviera

Is there a better way to enjoy an active vacation than spending a warm day hiking in the gorgeous nature of the Riviera? Many trails await the enthusiast, and they will take you along the coastline, through the verdant inland nature, or along the enchanting mountain slopes. 

Seven of the most interesting ones, as their names suggest even before you discover them, are the Waves Trail, the Karst and Sage Trail, the Cliffs Trail, the Green Trail, the Heavenly Trail, the Roman Trail, and the Degenia Trail. Don your boots, apply the sunscreen and start exploring the Magnificent Seven, or any of the numerous other trails crisscrossing the countryside.

Paragliding above the Crikvenica Riviera

Take flight with professional instructors and glide through the skies on a thrilling paragliding adventure. 

On a clear and sunny day nothing can compare to a birds eye view of the Kvarner bay. Verdant Vinodol valley, aquamarine surface of Triballj lake, jagged shoreline and the azure Adriatic sea connect into a tapestry of vibrant colors, making each flight seem like you are flying above some magnificent painting.

Hotel & Pavilion Omorika, Hotel & Resort Ad Turres 

Omorika hotel with its pavilion and Ad Turres Hotel with the surrounding resort are located near a wide variety of sports courts and facilities. Whether you travel solo or in a group, you are sure to find some great opportunities for an active vacation.

Enjoy a game of tennis on one of the clay courts, join a 5v5 soccer match, show off those dribbling skills at the basketball court, or go for a hole-in-one on the fun and challenging putt-putt course. No matter what you choose, a world of friendly, thrilling competition awaits.

Hotel Slaven 

The hotel is located in the picturesque seaside town of Selce, in the vicinity of various sports courts and facilities, including a mini golf course, table tennis, tennis courts, and a mini soccer field. Hotel Slaven is a great choice if you are looking for a fun and active family vacation.

Holiday Homes Kačjak 

Stay active on the picturesque Kačjak peninsula, enjoying the fresh seaside breeze imbued with sweet Mediterranean fragrances. Bring the heart rate and cardio levels up at the camp's multifunctional sports court. Display your dead-eye precision at the mini golf course shaded from the summer sun by a pine forest.

Bring your A-game and rule the tables on the very popular table tennis plateau, as the winner stays rules are in effect during the long summer days.

Makarska Riviera

Cycling the Makarska Riviera

Makarska Riviera and its hinterland offer some incredible and contrasting scenery. Some parts are steep, rugged, and rocky, some are lush and tame. Bicycle routes will take you through all of them. Choose a challenging trail, filled with ascents and inclines, or ride leisurely through nature, depending on your preference and skill level.

Starting from Makarska, the most exciting route goes up the majestic mount Biokovo, right up to St. Jure peak, standing tall some 1700 meters above sea level and offering a panoramic view of the whole Riviera. This is a very demanding three-hour ride though, testing even the most experienced cyclists' stamina. Luckily, there are very interesting alternatives taking you along the foothills of Biokovo, along the shoreline, or through the gorgeous Biokovo Botanical Garden.

Hiking the Makarska Riviera

Similarly to the biking trails, the hiking routes will take you through some lovely nature and offer scenic vistas from the promontories along the way. Hiking the Makarska Riviera is a great way to spend a day outdoors in the fresh breeze, work on your fitness level and stay healthy. A wide variety of trails stretch all along the Riviera, and it would take quite a long Croatian vacation to thread them all. 

If you prefer a more leisurely experience, perfect for a family trip, an easy trail looping around the St. Peter peninsula lets you enjoy the view of the city as well as the mighty Biokovo behind it. This route takes you through the public park - an inspiring place shaded by Mediterranean vegetation. Another undemanding yet beautifully scenic trail will lead you from Makarska harbor to Nugal, a beautiful pebbly beach where you can reward yourself with a refreshing swim after a 2-kilometer walk.

Should you seek out a challenge, though, trails ascending Mount Biokovo range from intermediate to very challenging, but reward the effort with some of the cleanest air, magnificent views, and a sense of accomplishment. The trails lead to famous Biokovo peaks such as St. Jure, Motika, Mali Šibenik, and Bukovac.

Sports courts and facilities

Hotel Alem

Bright skies, warm summer sun, lush nature, and the crystal clear sea of Baško polje are a natural backdrop for staying active and fit during your vacation. Thread the warm sand in a beach volleyball match, don your Air Jordans, and play some basketball or join a mini soccer team for some 5v5 action. 

If team sports are not your thing, why not try your hand at the traditional and always interesting game of bocce. The sports and required skill sets may differ, but a dose of healthy fun is guaranteed.

Brač Island

Cycling near Postira

Explore the island and its many trails leading through nature and along the coastline. With the sun on your cheeks, wind in your hair, and fragrances of nature surrounding you, the hours will simply fly by. The memories of the outdoor trip tend to last much much longer, even if you don't stop and snap a few photos along the way.

You could point your handlebars in any direction and find a lovely bicycle trail, but we recommend two especially interesting ones starting in Postira.

Profunda trail

The more demanding and longer one was named after the Brač mountaineering society responsible for developing and maintenance of many of the bicycle and hiking trails throughout the island.

Macići and Vivers Path

Ride along the trail through enchanting nature, named after unearthly beings from Slavic folklore. The tales of Macići and Vivers are passed in Postira and Dol from one generation to the next.

Hiking across Brač island will take you to the highest points of the island and present you with some beautiful and inspiring views of the Dalmatian coastline.

One particularly interesting route will cut across the island from Postira on the northern to Bol on the southern coast of Brač. During the six-hour hike, you will come across archaeological sites, promontories, and ancient drywalls - all surrounded by fragrant Mediterranean nature.
