Bottle-green, clean water eats its way through glorious white karst. Around every bend, the Krka River (pronounced Kirka) reveals ever more fantastic shades of colour in the play of sun and shadow.

Discovering Croatia means, above all, perceiving water in all its colours. Island hopping across the limestone islands of Cres and Krk, which glow white in the dark blue waves of the Adriatic, makes the intensity of the impressive play of colours even clearer. On their coasts, the bathing bays vie for the title of "most beautiful in the whole country", while on the mainland, the smallest roads await their rediscovery by motorcycle travellers. They wind their way up to fabulous views of the fantastically beautiful coastline - and lead to many a hidden, beautiful waterfall, whose green water plunges into the depths over thick mossy steps.
Day 1: Individual arrival at the meeting point hotel near Hermagor.
Day 2: Over the Naßfeldpass to Italy and further over Sella Nevea and the Predilpass to Slovenia. If the weather is fine, it is worth making a detour to the Mangart, the highest point in Slovenia with a great view. Continue through the Soca valley and on mainly small and very small roads through the hilly landscape of Slovenia to the border.
Day 3: The water mills of Slunj invite us to a first coffee break. Afterwards we treat ourselves to an unfortunately short but spectacular view of the Plitvice Lakes. We continue inland, partly near the border to Bosnia Herzegovina, to our next stage destination in Posedarje. Here, by the sea, we stay for a double night.
Day 4: Rest day. Optional excursions to the Krka waterfalls or a boat tour (full group, pre-booking necessary) are possible.
Day 5: The island of Pag, the coast and the Velebit mountains. Landscapes as they could not be more different. Roads as they could not be more different. All this is on the program today. Finally, the Vinodol, the wine valley, before we arrive at our hotel for the next 3 nights on the island of Krk.
Day 6: Early in the morning the ferry takes us from Krk to Cres. There, our first stop is Valun, a small fishing village with a picturesque little harbour. After a sightseeing tour we continue to Lubenice. There you can enjoy the magnificent view of the steep coast from almost 300 metres directly above the sea. In Osor we take time for the stone sculptures scattered around the village. We then cross the swing bridge to Losinj, the sister island of Cres. In Mali Losinj we visit a nice restaurant and enjoy the hustle and bustle at the harbour from the terrace. If there is enough time, the beach of Cres offers a short jump into the refreshing water of the Adriatic Sea. Then we take the ferry back to Krk.
Day 7: And again only curves without end. The island of Krk is our destination today. The enchanting view over the roofs of the cosy village of Baska is followed by an equally tranquil ride through the vineyards in the east of the island. In the old town of Curicta, the Roman name of the island's capital Krk, it is a good idea to exchange your steed for a leisurely walk on foot. There is always plenty of variety on Krk. And this does not only apply to the many curves of the small and low-traffic country roads. For the health-conscious, a bath in the healing mud of Soline Bay is recommended at the end of the day.
Day 8: On our way home we pass through the Risnjak National Park to a dreamy border crossing. Afterwards our way leads us on small, then a bit bigger, but always nicely meandered roads along the Idrija river back to the Soca. This time we have time to look at the positions from WW1, when the area was fiercely fought over as part of the Isonzo battles (the Italian name for the Soca). Finally, one or two small passes in Friuli and a last cappuccino before we reach our hotel in the Hermagor area.
Day 9: Individual journey home after breakfast.
