Swimming and Island Hopping along the Dalmatian Coast in Croatia: June – September 2016 (7 days)
Strel explains, “Croatia´s Dalmatian coast is an area of outstanding natural beauty and boasts some of the cleanest waters in the Mediterranean. We are based on the small island of Krapanj, a unique setting in the Sibenik archipelago. The island has one of the lowest populations in the Adriatic Sea and is completely traffic free – a swimmer’s paradise.”

Fjord & Cove Swimming – Montenegro: June – September 2016 (7 days)
Borut Strel explains, “Our Montenegro trip offers an incredible setting for a great sea and fjord swimming adventure. Country used to be a former constituent of the Republic of Yugoslavia and it lies on the Adriatic coast, nestled between Croatia, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia and Kosovo. It is steeped in history stretching back millennia. Many call the country a “crossroads of civilizations” where the East and the West cultures meet.

We are based in the small and very beautiful village of Prcanj, known as an old marine centre since the times of the sail ships, close to the old UNESCO town of Kotor. We swim and explore the stunning Bays of Kotor and Tivat and hop from one cove to another in the crystal-clear and balmy waters along the Adriatic sea

Swimming holidays in Slovenian Lakes and River: July – August 2016 (4 days)
Borut Strel explains, “Slovenia is an easily accessible country in the heart of Europe. At the junction of the Alps, the Mediterranean and the Pannonian Plain, it will surprise you with its diversity and lush natural beauty. Slovenia is known as a land of pure water, and its numerous green glacial lakes and crystal clear rivers make it a perfect location for our lake swimming adventure.

We are based in the small secluded town of Bohinj, overlooking the vast waters of its famous lake, which dominate the area. Bohinj provides a perfect gateway for exploring the fantastic landscape of this region and each day of our trip features a varied itinerary of swims and hikes so that our guests get a real sense of what Slovenia’s adventure heartland has to offer
