Détails de l'article
This guidebook describes 30 day walks on the islands of the Croatian Adriatic, ranging from short, easy coastal strolls to more challenging, full day outings over rocky ridges and summits, with spectacular views of the Dalmatian coast. Featuring routes on 14 Croatian islands, including the islands of Hvar and Mljet, as well as quieter islands.
From short coastal strolls to full-day outings over rocky summits (suitable for all abilities), the walks in this guide cover an island chain of outstanding beauty. From the Kvarner Gulf (south of Rijeka) to southern Dalmatia (west of Dubrovnik), the Croatian islands feature limestone ridges and toothy knolls alternating with olive groves and lush green forest, while coastlines boast sun-drenched beaches and striking cliffs.
A superb network of trails covers the islands, and the views they offer are frequently spectacular. Yet, despite being near tourist hotspots, most see hardly any use. This guide has all the information walkers need to explore the islands fully and ensure these paths get the footfall they deserve. (Présentation de l'éditeur)
