Croatia: Adventure Center Offers Families a Twist on European Vacations

Adventure Center is inviting families to enjoy “Dalmatian Adventure Family Holiday,” an adventure on Mijet, one of Croatia’s most beautiful islands. Prices start at $1,100 ppdo for the trip—and with a maximum group size of 24, guests are privy to the exclusivity of a small tour at an affordable rate.

The roundtrip program kicks off with dinner and a sightseeing tour along the cobblestone streets of enchanting Dubrovnik—the only eastern Adriatic city-state to rival Venice for maritime trade. From there, families take a short cruise to the beautiful Croatian island of Mljet, a slender isle of national parks, steep cliffs, turquoise waters and colorful reefs. During the six-night stay, families enjoy a walking tour, revealing ancient stone villages nestled within the island’s scenic interiors; two days of cycling and exploration in the lush national parks; opportunities to swim in the island’s salt water lakes and explore its rich forests; sea kayaking in the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic Sea; and a free day, with exciting optional activities including snorkeling, windsurfing and canoeing.

Pricing for the five departure dates, April 17 through August 21, 2011, range from $1,100 to $1,350, and include ground transport, accommodations and half-board; single supplements start at $175.
