Enjoy swimming in Croatia's crystal clear Adriatic Sea, as we explore the scattered islands of the Kornati National Park. Comprised of over 130 islands, renowned for their lunar-like appearance, this beautiful section of Croatia's famous Dalmatian Coast offers a huge range of unforgettable swims.
This part of Croatia enjoys superb water clarity and the islands, islets and bays we’ll visit - not only in the Kornati National Park but also the Telašćica Nature Park and wider area - offer hundreds of swimming options.
With so many natural wonders to explore, both above and below the water, your swims give you the opportunity to discover this fascinating corner of the world from a truly unique perspective.
Who is this trip for?
This trip is designed for the SwimTrekker that is looking for a combination of both island-hopping and coastal swims while swimming between and along mostly uninhabited islands.
Swimmers should have a basic understanding of open water swimming and be capable of completing the average swim distance of 2.5km. The average daily swim distance is around 5km (split over a minimum of two swims) prior to the start of the trip.

4 Swimtrek holidays later, I’ll keep going back! I’ve been to Croatia, Greece, Cornwall and Italy with Swimtrek and loved all my holidays. Their guides are friendly & helpful and the trips always beautiful. Really recommend these trips for swimmers of virtually any ability.AJ - 2021
