Sailing to islands

Take a sailing trip to the nearby islands: Hvar, celebrity vacation spot, and Brac, with the world famous Zlatny Rat beach. This is is a pure sailing pleasure, with mega-catamaran Summer Blues. Trips are available daily, and include delicious lunch with wine and excursions to the shore!  You can book online at www.summer-blues.com

Cycling tours

Split is a perfect location to explore by bike. Bikes are available for rent at many locations in the Old town. You can pick the city map at local agency, but you can’t get lost – just follow the coast. Best starting point is western Riva; from there, you can go west to reach Bene in Marjan hill, or go east towards popular Bacvice beach and Znjan.

Rural tourism

Visit nearby hinterland around Split, with interesting rural villages and places like Sinj and Klis with rich history and delicious local cuisine. Sinj is known for an authentic anual knights tournament, over 300 years long, celebrating victory over the Turks. Klis and its ancient clifftop fortress were used as a filming location for Game of Thrones.

Sea Kayaking

This is a great way to enjoy the beautiful view of the sights from the sea.  Kayaks are easier than canoeing, stable and comfortable. This is also a great way to escape from the crowd. You can rent a two-person kayak with a professional guide, and choose local trips or island kayaking on multi-day trips. Book a tour here: activevacationcroatia.com
