This introductory swimming holiday in Croatia explores the country's idyllic Dalmatian coastline as we swim between the 40 islands of the Šibenik archipelago. With a combination of island hopping and coastal swims, there is no shortage of spectacular places to discover in this beautiful corner of the world.
Croatia’s Adriatic coastline is dotted with more than 1,000 islands, and we base ourselves for this trip at the junction of the breathtaking Šibenik archipelago. Combining dramatic coastlines with superb water quality and beautiful islands, this really is an ideal location for an island hopping swimming holiday.
During the tour you will visit some of the most isolated islands in the Adriatic Sea including Zlarin which has been inhabited for 700 years and where cars are still banned today. Many of the islands visited on the tour are uninhabited and their natural beauty is untouched.

This trip is designed for swimmers who are looking for a combination of both island-hopping and coastal swims with shorter daily swim distances. The trip is ideal for swimmers with a little less experience in the open water or who are looking to enjoy some additional time out of the water.

Travelling with SwimTrek was a really fantastic experience. Our guide, Kelly was outstanding in every aspect. I will definitely be back next year.Katharina S, Germany - 2017
I went on SwimTrek as a "good husband". I do swim, but swimming is my wife's sport, not mine. However, now that I'm back from the Croatia Short-swims trip, I'm hooked and can't wait for our next SwimTrek!Ron W, USA - 2017
