When was the last time you stopped breathing for a second, your heart was rushing crazily, and goosebumps and chills took over all your body? What was the last thing that blew your mind? When was the last time you felt free and like you can conquer the world? When was the last time you were completely immersed in the moment that you forgot about your phone and the rest of the world?
If you needed a minute to think about it, too much time has passed. Or if you have never felt like that, it’s time to change that. It’s time to Travel to Croatia.
There are moments, places and sights that make us feel alive, invincible and grateful at the same time. There are bits of the time when everything around us stops for a second, and we take a deep breath trying to figure out who in the world we are so lucky to experience that moment. There are glances, people and nature that leave a deep mark on us and maybe even change us, turn our world upside down or make us question why have we waited so long to step out of our comfort zone. There are times when we gleam with joy and happiness just because we are alive. There is a little treasure chest full of those kinds of moments, and it’s just waiting for you to step out of the plane, train, bus or a car and take in everything it has to offer.
Whether jumping into the beauty of this little land or flying over the islands just underneath the clouds adds to your list of reasons to book a trip, there is so much more to choose from but let’s leave it for another time. Hop on and fasten your seatbelt, because this time around we are touring the north Dalmatia and its adrenaline hotspots.
The city with the most beautiful sunset in the world, according to Alfred Hitchcock, Zadar, is often overlooked but has so much to offer. Just minutes away, there is a heaven for all those bungee jumping lovers – Maslenica bridge, which is the highest point in Croatia you can jump from, thanks to its 56 meters. Another famous pitstop for this kind of adrenaline-pumping activity is Šibenik bridge, south of Zadar. Whichever you pick, one thing is for sure – there will be professionals by your side the entire time, making sure the equipment is functioning and recording everything. The only thing you need to do is – just let go.
In case you would rather stick to the ground (kind of) and enjoy the rush of (white water) rafting, just search the keyword – Zrmanja canyon. The wild, untouched nature and river cutting through the rocks is the perfect combination that will take your breath away in more ways than one. The canyon is one of the most beautiful places for hiking but letting the river take you down its waterfalls is far more exciting and an unforgettable experience.
If you want to feel like a local and experience something completely different, book your trip in time for škraping!
