Croatia Clymb Adventure

We fol­lowed one of our very own employ­ees, Adri­ana, as she explored Croa­t­ia on a Clymb Adven­ture with her friends. Check out our quick interview:

Why Croatia?

A group of friends and I picked Croa­t­ia because we want­ed to find a place that was a bit more off the beat­en ‘tourist’ path. We couldn’t resist the allure of the stun­ning­ly beau­ti­ful Adri­at­ic coast­line, and we were intrigued by the country’s cap­ti­vat­ing history.

What made the trip so special? 
We had the oppor­tu­ni­ty to see and expe­ri­ence so many facets of Croa­t­ia. From the farm­lands on the island of Sipan, to the old world city of Dubrovnik, we were able to tru­ly immerse our­selves in the breath­tak­ing nat­ur­al beau­ty and warm cul­ture of this incred­i­ble country.

What were your pack­ing essentials?

Because the weath­er was so tem­per­ate while we were there, my pack­ing list was pret­ty min­i­mal. Must-haves includ­ed a swim­suit, Cha­cos, board­shorts, sun­screen, pack tow­el, and a nice light­weight long sleeve sun shirt. For adven­tures on land I brought a com­fort­able pair of light hik­ing shoes, sun­glass­es, Hydrak­pak Stash water bot­tle, hik­ing shorts, and my favorite CIRQ light­weight insu­lat­ed jacket.

Tell us about your guides
Our cap­tain, Jacques, and our guide, Luka, were so much fun! They were extreme­ly knowl­edge­able and took great pride in shar­ing their favorite places with us. They also took won­der­ful care of our group and made sure we all had a unique and unfor­get­table experience.

Where do you want to go next?
I would love my next adven­ture to be a cycling trip through Europe. With that said, trav­el­ing on orga­nized trips along­side a local guide has giv­en me added con­fi­dence — so much so that I can’t think of any­where I wouldn’t love to explore!
