Everything you see is just an entry to the world of biographies and stories that these islands have to tell.
Travelling to Croatia and wanting to experience adventure - well you don't need to look much further. My experience was escaping Zadar to the offshore islands using seakayaks to explore. Malik Adventures set up was first class experience. As a fellow expedition professional of over 20 years experience it was a pleasure to travel with Malik Adventures and I can throughly recommend it.
We had such an amazing trip with Malik Advenutures this past week! We sent time learning how to conquer the waves, the mountains and the weather. The food was amazing and home cooked and I can’t say enough good things about Marko. He was caring, knowledgeable and most importantly FUN! We couldn’t have asked for a better guide or person to be running these adventures. Whether you are experienced or just a beginner, I highly recommend this company. Marko, I’ll be back!
