running, city, walls

Times when incentive groups were looking for a nice sandy beach, a comfy hotel bed, and a few tours are long gone. Today more and more people are looking to incorporate their active lifestyle in their travels. DT Croatia recognizing such trends now offers a number of unique sporting activities that combine recreation, sightseeing, culture and one-of-a-kind views.

Running City Walls

One such exciting activity, the so called “Dubrovnik-thlon” consists of three disciplines; running, hiking and biking.  The activity starts early in the morning with the first discipline – running. Running takes place on the impressive Dubrovnik City Walls which is specially opened early for the group before regular public working hours. Participants walk or run the city walls after which a short break is organized before the next activity, hiking to the hill Srđ above Dubrovnik. A less tiring alternative for hiking can be a pleasant ride with the cable car to the viewpoint at the top of Srđ. Another option is kayaking around the Old Town with an incredible view of the Walls from the seaside. Kayaking can finish at the famous Banje beach from where the activity continues to the cable car station and the ride to the top. After the break on Srđ and stunning views of Dubrovnik and surrounding areas, the activity is wrapped up with the third discipline, biking around the small villages back towards the city for a well-deserved lunch.  


This or a similar activity can be organized by DT Croatia throughout Croatia in Split, Hvar, Zadar, Istria, Zagreb, and elsewhere.

Now, with new direct flights starting in spring 2015 connecting Dubrovnik and other destinations such as Brussels, London, Amsterdam, Athens and Rome, Croatia has never been more accessible!
