The Route of the 1000 Islands


1,244 islands and islets lie just off the coast of Croatia offering endless opportunities for adventurous sea kayakers. With pristine beaches for camp, mild weather and port towns to explore, it’s easy to choose your own adventure.

Hoping for one last summer adventure, four friends spend three days circumnavigating the island of Lošinj. Paddling a total of 50+ kilometers, the kayakers welcome a tailwind on day one, which pushes them farther than planned, giving them extra time to explore the town of Mali Lošinj on day two. An open water crossing challenges the team on day three, but it wouldn’t be an adventure without a little tension.
