Springs of Dalmatia

Hiking and cycling adventure in Dalmatian hinterland

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.

Cetina River Spring

The source of the river Grab is deep and quiet, and the springing water is ice-cold. At the bottom of an impressive cliff, not long after the source, the river turns into a waterfall and afterwards continues on a calm path from basin to basin, until joining the river Ruda and then Cetina.

In vicinity of the source, Grab mills represent a wonderful tribute to past times, as they still produce flour in the exact same way as they did 600 years ago. Possibly the most impressive historic heritage in the region, this protected site is well worth a visit, especially as it is also home to a locally known naive artist and sculptor Mr. Iko Samarzdic, who is always happy to welcome guests, show his artwork and have a cup of coffee with his visitors.
