Imagine cruising AND HIKING the coastline of Croatia with your fellow Women’s Fitness Adventures C.R.E.W members in our own private chartered boat! Visit historic villages and hike beautiful mountains and dine in wonderful coastal villages on local delicacies.

On this adventure, IT’S A PRIVATE CHARTER – meaning we have the boat exclusively to ourselves so we can easily travel the Croatian islands and adapt as we please. The beauty of travelling this way is we only have to unpack once onboard and it is our home for seven nights.

Hugging the coastline, we stop in at various towns to hike during the day with our local, professional hiking guide. Our hikes range in intensity and are suited to the hiker with a moderate fitness level. We cruise in the daylight hours, to maximise coastal views and enjoy the daylight. In the evening we are docked at village ports  giving us the opportunity to “dine local” and explore the villages at night.

We do hope you will join us. No boating experience needed – just a sense of adventure and your hiking gear.

Secure your place today with a 25% payment. See Booking Terms & Conditions for more details. Note single supplement for the boat and hotel available upon request. Please contact us

  • Adventure Type & Grading

    This is a MODERATE multi day adventure.

    Our hikes are part or FULL day hikes and timings given are indicative only.

    A MODERATE level of fitness is required.

    What this means is:

    • there are consecutive days hiking where we are out ” all day or most of the day”, so having a good level of endurance (the ability to be out hiking all day) is necessary
    • The hiking consists of hills, stairs and uneven paths. Many paths are historical meaning that they are uneven underfoot. There may be some large sections to “step up”
    • A good level of cardio fitness is required due to some of the ascents to reach the summits for the incredible views – so being able to recover your breath after hiking hills; hiking up hills/stairs without stopping every few moments (the goal is to keep going no matter how slow you might think you are).
    • Stability on legs is required so that you can handle the uneven terrain.
    • Strong ankles and good quality footwear are required.
    • Day Pack weight will be around 5-7kg, depending on weather conditions.
      Trails on the Women's Fitness Adventures Cruising & Hiking in Croatia Fitness Adventure
  • Fitness Level

    Our Cruising and Hiking in Croatia Fitness Adventure is Graded Moderate.

    The walking is  moderate to moderate plus with daily guided walks of around 4-8 hours. This of course, depends on the pace of the group and the conditions of the trail at that time.

    This is a cruising holiday on a traditional vessel that is fully skippered  and has a crew on board. No previous sailing experience is necessary and all safety equipment is supplied.

    This adventure is graded as MODERATE and you need an above average level of fitness to participate fully in this adventure.

    The advantage of being on a vessel is that if you have a day when you do not feel like hiking you can stay in the villages and explore.

    We advise you do as much training as you can before the trip.  The more you train for this hike, the easier you will handle the terrain and the more you will enjoy this wonderful part of the world.

    As part of this adventure you will be supplied with a hike training plan, specifically designed for your Croatian hike.

    One of the most common asked questions is ” Will I be fit enough?”

    As soon as you book your Multi Day Adventure, you can get started with training.

    Through booking into the adventure early and allowing time to train, those with an introductory plus level of fitness will find this an achievable goal – provided you put in the training. 

    Here’s what you get:

    • Four months BEFORE departure you will receive  hike training plan relevant to your adventure.
    • An ONLINE Group Adventure meeting that details your training, gear & equipment and checks in on your status.
    • Access to the closed Cruising & Hiking in Croatia Fitness Adventure Facebook Group.

    In person Group Hike Training is available and is an optional extra for participants based in South East Queensland. The link to purchase the sessions will be made available to you once your booking is confirmed.

    These training sessions are held in Brisbane once a month on a Sunday and are shared with members booked on a variety of our multi day adventures.

    By following (that is “doing”) our training programs and actively moving “toward” your adventure you will become Adventure Ready.

    The training programs have been developed by Women’s Fitness Adventures, based on many decades of experience and qualifications in both the fitness industry and hiking in the outdoors.  

  • Weather

    May and June and two of the best months to travel to Croatia

    The weather is warm and sunny but not too crowded.

    It is important to come along with an open mind ready for an awesome experience whatever the weather, whoever the group. Weather can sometimes be unpredictable.

    As Governments and Principals start to open and accept clients their requirements for Covid vaccinations, PCR Tests and other requirements are constantly evolving.  Whilst Women’s Fitness Adventures may assist you in navigating these travel requirements you are ultimately responsible for all medical & travel-related documentation required by state, federal or international authorities that allow entry or exit into their state, territory, return to Australia or overseas travel from Australia to another country.  You should ensure that you have satisfied yourself that you have all the required documents before booking your travel and keep yourself up to date on any changes to these requirements.

    If provided by you, you authorise Women’s Fitness Adventures to store a copy of all relevant COVID vaccination certificates and forward a copy to any of our Adventure Partners, as reasonably required for your specific adventure.

  • Sustainable Adventures

    Our fabulous adventures allow you to create memories and friendships that last a lifetime. At Women’s Fitness Adventures we are also committed to sustainable adventures so that the places and spaces we go will also last well beyond our lifetime and the many generations to follow. Sustainability starts when you join our community and never ends.

    We are committed to the principles of minimal impact, leave no trace, tread lightly  and give back to the local community. Here’s how we do that for all of our adventures (short and long)


    • We encourage “no plastics” so bringing refillable water bottles, reusable cups and cutlery where applicable and using lunchboxes where plastic can be minimised
    • It’s a leave no trace principle, so all food scraps, toilet waste and rubbish items are carried out. (See our Masterclass on Toileting for the Trail)
    • We are committed to reducing paper waste inside our organisation and have implemented a paperless booking system.


    • For this adventure, once in country, we use either foot or public transport as our mode of movement.
    • When flying, we encourage you to offset your emissions by purchasing carbon offsets.

    Minimal impact

    • We have a “tread lightly” policy where we stay on known tracks and paths, minimising our impact to bush, plants and wildlife.
    • Before we embark on an adventure or trail, we brief you on the flora, fauna and any other considerations that form the uniqueness of the environment so that you understand and appreciate the minimal impact approach.

    Accommodation & Adventure Partners

    • Where possible we partner with Eco Certified businesses who follow the same eco philosophies
    • Our adventures have all the applicable National Park permits and licenses to operate (or International equivalents)
    • Our “give back” policy also applies to the locations we stay – choosing local operators, businesses and townships where funds spent go directly to small business owners – doing our part to create sustainable communities.

Here Is What Other Women Say About Our Adventures

” Knowing the leaders has been a most positive part of my life. From the very beginning I have been encouraged to do my best. Everything about the adventures has been amazing” Mt Koscuisko 2017

Merlene Madge

“It was just the level of fun! The comradeship and sense of adventure was great with the entire group of ladies. Also the fact that every single step was never repeated. The variety of walks was super. The adventure was coordinated so well and ran like clockwork” Cinque Terre, Italy 2019.
