KAYAK EXPEDITION DEPARTURE - ZIZANJ
The day begins with a hearty breakfast by the water's edge. Then, it 's time to have you familiarize yourself with the basics of group navigation, padding through the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic. Upon returning to the base, we prepare for the raid: tents, dishes, food... Everything must be return to our boats. After lunch, it's adventure time! You follow along Island coast; your goal: they of Sveti Anteto set up camp.
A notre retour au camp, ce sont maintenant les préparatifs du raid: tentes, affaires, vaisselles, nourriture... tout doit rentrer dans nos embarcations.Après le déjeuner, c'est parti pour l'aventure. Vous suivez la côte de l'île de Pasman, objectif: la baie de Sveti Ante pour y établir votre premier camp itinérant.
En find de journée, le guide vous propose une petite ballade dans le maquis croate avant le préparation du diner au bord de l'eau.
Your day begins with sailing in the sit archipelago. From island to island, you head west to reach the provers Pass, an S-shaped pass that marks the northern entrance to Kornati National Park. You follow Kornat, the park's largest island, known for its rare vegetation, and finally arrive in the bay of Sipnate where Vid is waiting for you with a delicious meal in his "Konoba"(a traditional small Dalmatian restaurant). Before relaxing in the Sipnat Bay camp you will hike the rocky pass to the dominating peaks of the bay and the west side of the park.
Next on the itinerary is Telascica Park. The Sestrica lighthouse marks the north of Kornati Park and the entrance to Telascica Park, famous for its cliffs overlooking the Adriatic Sea. A coastal path leads you to the ridges to indulge a remarkable view.
Another peculiarity of the park: Mir, a small salt lake fed by the infiltrations of the sea in the rocks, lake whose level changes with the movements of low and high tide (with a little delay compared to the sea). to the Island of Levrnaka to arrive in the sumptuous bay of Edi. This will be the time to camp and in the evening Edi will treat you to his fishing on his terrace with breath-taking views of the park.
SOUTH OF KORNATIS
En route to the south of Kornatis by sea, the islands offer a completely different perspective of the national park, with cliffs carved by a combined attack of waves and salt. On to southeast, skirting these islands, a spectacle awaits as you find yourself at the foot of the walls. You will have the opportunity to dive into the drop offs, with a grand blue atmosphere in the midst of fauna rich in colors. After a long day a well-deserved rest awaits you under the shade of olive trees before returning to the well protected by Levrnaka Bay.
Your kayaking trip resumes toward the islands of Mana, followed by Kornat for a stop to hike to its summit: Metlina. Walking along the coast you'll pass a rare remnant of the park, a small Byzantine fort, overlooking the Kornat Channel. Below, a tiny chapel reminds of the strong Catholic beliefs among the fishermen of the region. You will then slip into transparent waters, experiencing once again the magic of the Adriatic Sea. In the evening, at the camp set up on Penizelic's Little Island, you will enjoy a meal by a fire under the Milky Way; its constellations mapping out dreams of navigators.
FJORD OF ZUT
From Penizelic we slide into the Zut Canal: the Southeast Cape, a kind of big fjord between the island of Kornat and of Zut. Several scheduled stops, allow you to appreciate the southern panorama of the park, climbing a canyon to explore a natural cave in the bay of Stivina and stopping at a picturesque Konoba run by two brothers. Following a picnic under the pines, your final paddle will lead you back to the Island of Zizanj in the late afternoon. The tour ends with a good rinsing of kayaks, equipment, and participants before heading back to civilization in Pakostane.
