Enjoy swimming in Croatia's warm, 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.
If you would like to explore this part of the world, but are looking for slightly shorter swimming distances, please check out our Kornati Islands Short Swims trip.
Who is this trip for?
This trip is designed for the SwimTrekker that is looking for coastal swims along the numerous mostly uninhabited islands that make up this archipelago.
Swimmers should have a basic understanding of open water swimming and be capable of completing the average swim distance of around 3 km prior to the start of the trip. The average daily swim distance is around 5km (split over a minimum of two swims).
We have given this trip a ‘Moderate’ grading. Most swimmers comfortable in the open water will be able to take part and enjoy one of these trips.
