Swimming in Croatia's breathtaking Kornati National Park is the perfect opportunity to stretch out your stroke and enjoy some longer swims in one of the country's most beautiful archipelagos. With more than 130 remote and often uninhabited islands, this stretch of water is a truly fascinating part of Croatia's famous Dalmatian coastline.
From the calm, sheltered waters of the lagoon of Telascica Bay Nature Park, to the dramatic open sea cliffs on the western shore of Dugi Otok, there is no shortage of places to explore and sights to enjoy. With an average daily swim distance of 8km, this trip is suitable for more experienced open water swimmers and those who prefer longer swims, with one of the highlights of the week being the exhilarating 8½km circumnavigation of the lovely pine-clad island of Lavdara.

I switched off my brain, switched on my swimming muscles, met lovely people, enjoyed great food, and came home already planning my next trip. Swimtrek is rapidly becoming a wonderful annual habit!John F. China - 2016
What a fantastic experience! The week has been challenging, fun and opened my eyes to the fact that there are lots of people out there who love open water just as much as me! It has inspired me to do much more, so this will be first SwimTrek of many for me :-)Chris S. UK - 2016
