Trekking in Croatia
Croatia, or Hrvatska is becoming a popular tourist destination and one cannot fail to notice the rugged mountains which rise spectacularly from its Dalmatian coast. These limestone mountains extend from Slovenia in the north to Montenegro in the south. They provide a superb, and as yet unspoilt arena for the mountain walker or alpinist. Ranging from gently sloping forested hills to rugged tops and limestone crags, they form a landscape of considerable beauty. They are not, however, a complete wilderness experience and trails are established and clearly marked. There are many mountain huts which local walkers use; our routes will always stay in or camp close to these huts as it is possibly the only source of water.
