Zadar: Full-Day Sailing Trip to Kornati

2. Zadar: Full-Day Sailing Trip to Kornati

Sail toward the southern part of Dugi Otok Island. This is where the sea embraces Telašćica, whose name derives from the Latin "Telagus" (meaning 3 lakes). Relax on the boat with a book or sunbathe on deck. Enjoy views of the picturesque Mediterranean landscapes along the way. Chat with the skipper if you are interested in sailing and hear all the secrets of their ancient craft.  Upon arrival at Telašćica Nature Park, enjoy some free time to swim and snorkel. Go for a stroll and give a treat to the timid donkeys. There's a donkey reserve within the park and the coastal (or Dinaric) donkey is an indigenous Croatian breed. Currently, there are 14 donkeys living in Telašćica, while the entire area abounds with flora and fauna. The park has 3 smaller bays within its wider area. Telašćica is the largest and best-protected natural harbor on the eastern coast of the Adriatic. It has 5 islets, of which the small rock slab of Taljurić is the most extraordinary. Continue to Lake Mir in the southwestern part of the park. The salt waters of the lake derive from the underground canals that connect it to the sea. Archaeological excavations made in the area indicate the place was inhabited in the earliest periods. On the return journey, go to Stene (also known as the "Devil`s Cliffs"). Marvel at the vertical cliffs that rise up to 61 meters from the sea. They spread from Mrzlovica Cape on the northwest to the slopes of Veli Vrh on the southeast.

Waterfalls were quite lovely. It was a nice walk along a board walk with many photo opportunities and points to observe the many smaller waterfalls and fish. The boat ride down the river was also very pleasant, the swim in the river and then the wine tasting. The wine tasting was surprisingly fun and very good wine. We learned quite a bit and bought a bottle of the dessert wine. Overall a great day out and Ante, our driver was very knowledgable and friendly. My adult children also enjoyed the day and we would highly recommend it. Try it!

The tour was really good. It was a good balance of tour, exploration, and wine tasting. Would definitely recommend! I loved walking through the Krka Park and seeing all of the waterfalls and trails. The boat ride to the other side was great had a lot of good views. After seeing the park the family owned winery was amazing.

Very friendly and knowledgeable host and straightforward. All ran to time and well organised. Would definitely recommend - the waterfalls are incredible and the tour drops you off right at the top - all walking is flat or downhill and then boat trip to small town with river beach and coach pickup. Cheers!

Ante made the trip informative and fun! It was a really enjoyable day out and would recommend definitely doing the wine tasting as well, it was delicious! I also went with this agency to kayak and it was faboulus.

Excellent tour, Marco brought comedy and energy to a hot day! Wine tasting and waterfalls are very worth it, and generally it’s a great value day out!
