The region behind the mountains near Split is one of Croatia's most beautiful and least discovered. Dalmatian hinterland, although bordering with the coast, is mostly flat, karst terrain covered in macchia, providing you with an entirely different perspective of Croatia and a strong contrast to the summer lifestyle on the Adriatic coast. The Secret Dalmatia Four Dinara Springs Light Trekking and Jeep Safari Adventure takes you away from the crowds on a tour of nature, heritage and gastronomy, introducing you to a very different Dalmatia from the one experienced on the beach.
Join our local guide for a tour of the natural beauties of Zagora, a combination of light trekking and off-roading in our Landrover Defender. The rugged roads enhance the sense of adventure, taking us to the sources of four or the many rivers around here. Grab, Ruda, Ovrjka and Rumin, the rivers that have powered mills of Dalmatia for centuries, are today magnificent landscape sites of springs, waterfalls and cliffs.
The historic town of Sinj, sitting on Cetina river, is an epitome of a historic Dalmatian hinterland town and home to one of Croatia's most important cultural events, the annual knights' tournament known as Alka, which takes place every August. You will see the historic Alka courtyard, and - if the timing is right, maybe catch some of the tournament preparations, before enjoying a coffee on Sinj's impressive main square.
Sampling the very best of the local gastronomy, its fine wines, trademark prsut (dried cured hams) and homemade cheese in an eco-ethno village is the grand finale of this tour, the perfect platform to pause for a moment and just enjoy the region's spectacular nature in an entirely private experience.
