If you want to explore Croatia’s wild and unspoiled landscape, the Krka trail ride is perfect. At the start of the ride, you will get to see Dalmatia’s small and romantic villages. The landscape is amazing, with lots of small springs where you can take a refreshing dip. You will pass impressive mountain peaks such as Dinara and Svilaja which are said to watch over riders as they pass through the wide pastures and forests. You then come to the Cetina River that winds its way through the landscape. You will follow the river to the Peruka Lake and get to know the old romantic towns of Vrlika and Drnis. Once you have passed Drnis, you come to Krka National Park. You will enjoy the beautiful Krka River’s seven natural waterfalls and the Park’s rich and diverse flora and fauna. In Krka there are many cultural and historical monuments ranging from pre-history right up to the present day.
You will stay four nights on the farm and three nights at other attractive accommodation.

Preliminary day-by-day program

Arrive during the day. If you want, you can visit the city of Sinj. Then you get to know the other guests and horses. You eat dinner together every night and drink wine from the estate's own winery.

After breakfast, it is time for a test ride to see if you and your horse are compatible. It is possible to change horses before you start the trail ride. You gallop across the fields of Sinj and then on to the river where you can swim with your horse, if the weather permits. After this, you return to the farm and have lunch.

After breakfast, you prepare for the long ride. You follow the river Cetina over the meadows that are made for galloping. You are then treated to a picnic lunch by the river. After lunch, the ride continues up on a plateau called Bitelic. You ride on the old cobbled roads from Roman times and enjoy the view of the Dinara and Svilaja Mountains that surround you. You pass through the old village of Vucipolje and then ride on to Lake Peruca where you can swim with your horse. After a short break, you will leave the horses and be driven back to the farm by car, about 20 minutes, where you will eat dinner.

After breakfast you are driven back to the horses where you saddle up and the ride continues along the lake’s shore. After a bit of trotting and a few long gallops across beautiful meadows, you come to the small town of Vrlika where there is an old fort with a rich history. You will leave the horses here and drive back to your accommodation for the night.

After breakfast, you ride through Vrlika and climb up into the mountains to the village of Maovice. At the top, you take a short break and can admire the beautiful views of the river, meadows and mountains before descending for lunch. After lunch, there will be more chances trot and gallop across meadows and through the vineyards to the town of Drnis. When you have unsaddled the horses, you go to your motel in town. After a shower and some rest, you will be met at a restaurant nearby where you can taste Croatian cuisine with local wine.

After a good night's sleep, you continue your ride to the Krka National Park. A few gallops and you will come to the small village Bristane where you eat lunch at an agro-tourism farm that prepares local food and schnapps flavored with lemon, orange and grapefruit. Once you have taken care of the horses, you will take a boat to the island of Visovac, which is considered one of the most important historic sites in Croatia. Since 1445, it has been the site of a Franciscan Monastery, Our Lady of Mercy and the Church of Our Lady of Visova. The monastery has an archaeological collection, and a library with valuable old books and manuscripts.
After you have seen the island of Visovac you continue your sightseeing tour. You can then swim in the river and enjoy the beautiful surroundings and waterfalls along the river. The mill in Roski Slap is an interesting and valuable ethnographic landmark in Dalmatia. After your sightseeing, you go back to the village of Bristane and eat dinner together with the owners of the farm.

In the morning, you continue your ride to a canyon by the Čikola River with stretches for both trotting and galloping on the way. You descend into the canyon that is the most beautiful place in the national park. You will pass a sixteenth century fort named Kljucica. On the right side, you will see the Čikola River flowing into Lake Visovak, which surrounded by huge cliffs and abundant flowers. You continue the ride to the point where you will cross the Čikola River. Now you begin to climb up the canyon and once out of the canyon, you will eat lunch.
Your ride then continues to the villages of Goris and Konjevrate and Skradinski, the entrance of the Krka National Park. It is also the end of this amazing ride. You unsaddle the horses and they are driven back to the farm. Meanwhile, there is more sightseeing for you to do. Skradinski Buk is the longest and most visited waterfall along the Krka RIver. There is a network of trails that take you around the falls. At the bottom you can swim in the crystal clear water.
