Northern Delights | Six Islands (8 Days)

Northern Delights | Six Islands (8 Days)

7 Nights, 8 Days

Our favorite trip, the best of Northern Adriatic. We’ll paddle to six Islands in seven days, exploring this rugged but diverse coastline and passing the 45th parallel. We'll observe the biggest Eurasian bird - the Griffon Vulture, and enjoy many amazing sceneries.This is an expedition type of tour, which means we carry most of our suplies with us in the kayaks.


The following itinerary should be seen as an approximate guide only. Our program may change depending on the local weather conditions and preferences of the group.

Day 1 - Island of Rab Kayaking | 15 km

Meeting at our place at 8:30 am, followed by a transfer to the starting point and loading the suplies in the kayaks. Paddling along the west side of the island (rocky and sandy shoreline with forrests) or eastern Geo-park side (rocky with barren vegetation), depending on the wind strength and direction.

Day 2 - Geo-Park Rab & Prison Island | 18 km

Exploration of the Geological Park with its caves and cliffs. The Lopar peninsula is a geological landmark - the white sandy beaches melt with the pine forest and rare sandy dunes which are shaped by the wind, salt and erosion. After lunch we'll cross to the Island of St. Gregory (Sv. Grgur), a former political prison with interesting historical remains - steep cliffs crowned by military lookout bunkers. The local restaurant where we usually camp is also a gathering site for the deers, which are very fond of people.

Day 3 - Island of Prvić | 20 km

If the weather conditions are not optimal to head towards the larger island of Krk, we will have a sightseeing of the island Gregory. There are a lot of remains left from the socialist era, but also a rich flora - fig trees, therapeutic herbs like sage, immortelle and thyme, and if the season is right we will witness honey production from these plants.

When it's time to paddle, we will head across the channel to the island of Prvić and further to the Island of Krk. Our objective is the bay of Stara Baška where we’ll set up our tents.

Day 4 - Baška to town of Krk | 15 km

We continue paddling along the Krk coastline. In the Town of Krk you can enjoy coffee, ice cream and sometimes we even stay for pizza! The campsite is not far away from town so guests sometimes decide to stay longer, have dinner and even enjoy a night out.

Day 5 - Krk to Plavnik | 14 km

After breakfast we’ll have an hour long crossing to the Island of Plavnik. Our camp will be set up in an old and mystical holm oak forrest. There was a small village on the top of the Island but today the island is used as a hunting ground with many deers and big-horned goats.

Day 6 - Plavnik to La Plaža on Cres | 20 km

Our longest paddling day. Passing beneath the cliffs where the Griffon Vultures are nesting. We are not allowed to make any noise or dusturb the birds. It is a good idea to have binoculars with you. Next step is a short crossing to the Island of Cres, and with a few more stops reach a beautiful remote beach where we will spend the night.

Day 7 - La Plaža to Beli | 8 km

Our last paddling day will start under cliffs where the Vultures are nesting. We’ll use a campsite under Beli - a small village near the sea with very few permanent residents. A perfect place to ease your mind and set up the tents after the lunch. The dinner is in the nearby restaurant.

Day 8 - Departure

Packing after breakfast. Organized transfer to Town of Cres Bus station or as a option we can transfer you to Krk Island / Rijeka Airport or to the ferry port of Valbiska. It is also possible to drive back with us to the Island of Rab or the Island of Krk.Another option is to paddle to the Ferry port of Valbiska on Krk from where you can either head straight home or back to the island of Rab, but this option needs to be arranged before the trip as it impact on itinerary.
