Holiday in Kvarner

The Croatian Kvarner Bay on the upper Adriatic is home to small islands and beautiful harbor towns along the coast, which have long been known as popular vacation spots. More than two thousand hours of sunshine per year favor a pleasant Mediterranean climate and make discovering the picturesque little towns and historic old cities all the more beautiful. Above all, the warm temperatures are ideal for extensive bathing vacations at the crystal clear sea. Whether it is relaxing moments of tranquility, shared experiences with the whole family or sporty and active leisure activities - the wide range of possibilities to spend an unforgettable vacation make Kvarner a valued destination for young and old.

Holiday in Kvarner

The Kvarner Bay on the upper Adriatic Sea includes several Croatian towns between Rijeka and the Istrian peninsula. Mild climate, rich vegetation and beautiful riviers with stately villas - besides olive groves, rosemary and lavender, the lush nature offers hiking trails with panoramic views and crystal clear water as far as the eye can see.

In a comparatively small area you will find the turquoise sea, small islands and mountainous hill country. Thus, on the same day, vacationers can take a boat ride, snorkel and cool off in the shade of the dense forests. In winter it is even possible to go skiing here with a view of the sea and then relax in the heated hotel pool - a unique experience. The islands of Krk, Cres, Lošinj, Rab and their archipelago have particularly beautiful coasts, the sight of which will make you dream. Inland, the Gorski Kotar region is a green, wooded area that exudes its own beauty.
