The island of Krk

A Mediterranean outdoor destination for everyone

A perfect oasis for an active holiday filled with positive energy. Running away from the everyday routine to recharge your batteries in nature and gain new knowledge is a perfect recipe for a dream holiday.

Where? On an island.

Any hints? Krk, of course – the only golden island in the Adriatic.

Due to its mild Mediterranean climate, favourable geographical position and incredible natural, historical and cultural diversity, it has been known as Insula Aurea (The Golden Island) ever since the ancient times. The 45th parallel north passes through the island, positioning it precisely halfway between the Equator and the North Pole. It is the first Adriatic island you will come across when coming from the north, which means it is the closest one to Central Europe.If you are longing for an island holiday, but wish to avoid long travels, Krk is just the right destination: it boasts an airport, and is also easily reachable from the mainland via the Krk Bridge.

If you choose to visit some of the nearby islands, such as Cres, Lošinj or Rab, you will get there in no time. Krk is also known as ‘the oasis of positive energy’ among the fans of active holidays. Its mild Mediterranean climate with fascinating 2,500 hours of sunshine a year and the bathing season that lasts from April to October make it an ideal year-round destination for active holidays. The island stretches from north-west to south-east, and its dynamic configuration offers an interplay of tame coves along the 200-metre-long shoreline, fertile vine valleys, dense sub-Mediterranean forests, barren rocks, and Moon-like landscapes with incredible vistas. So it comes as no surprise that its offer of outdoor activities is more than impressive, both in terms of number, range, and level of difficulty. Outdoor enthusiasts will be happy to know that there is a whole network of marked hiking and cycling trails running through the island: from seaside promenades to longer and more challenging trails in its interior.Reward yourselves for all the hard work and embark on an adventure to explore Krk’s hidden treasure, uncover its impressive history, see how the famous Frankopan Counts of Krk lived, and treat your palate to some of the traditional local dishes, paired with the superb Vrbnik Žlahtina wine. Take your kids with you as well, and have fun with a lot of amenities and services intended precisely for them.Humour yourselves and start pushing your own boundaries. Experience the Golden Island in all seasons.
