Frequently Asked Questions

What is the weather like in Croatia?
Croatian coast has a typically Mediterranean climate consisting of hot, dry and sunny weather during summer months. Average temperatures during summer lies in the high 20°C, although it is more likely that you’ll have temperatures well into the 30 °C. The sunniest island in Croatia is Hvar, with over 2,700 hours of sun per year. Split, Vela Luka (on the island of Korcula) and Dubrovnik are the next sunniest spots in Dalmatia. Croatia boasts with very low humidity, sitting at about 60%, so even in the scorching sun the heat is bearable.
How demandig are the tours in Croatia?
The tours are considered to be moderate. There is an average of 5 hours of walking each day with many ascends and descends. A good physical condition is essential. Due to the nature of the package, this program is not recommended for children younger than 15 years and pregnant women. All minors must be accompanied by an adult, who is either their parent or legal guardian.
How does tipping in Croatia work?
Tipping is not obligatory in Croatia, but it is always appreciated if the service provider did a good job. During the self-guided trips, there won't be a guide to tip at the end of your trek. However, private drivers will take care of your transfers and you will be eating at restaurants where the waiters might deserve a tip for their good services. A tip of 5 to 15 percent is greatly appreciated in restaurants.
What should I pack for my trek in Croatia?
Packing the right clothes can make a huge difference during your trek. Here is a recommended packing list so that you don't miss any important items while preparing your bags for this adventure:

- Jacket – warm, wind & waterproof, soft-shell,
- comfortable clothes,
- sunglasses, sunscreen, lip balm, any other sun protection,
- water bottle (preferably reusable),
- first aid (a small basic kit with items such as bandages, antiseptic wipes, gauze, antibacterial ointment, sterile pads),
- large backpack to pack all your belongings,
- Hiking shoes –  choose wisely.

IMPORTANT: Appropriate footwear is an essential part of any hiking tour. There are a variety of models on the market designed to meet the needs of different types of hikers; the challenge is finding the one that works best for your purposes.

Choose softer and more flexible hiking shoes, appropriate for longer walks. Those shoes are typically made of breathable material, are comfortable and do not require breaking in. Shoes like that are usually not waterproof, but Croatia during the summertime has very little rain and the odds are good that during your tour, there will be no rain.
