Croatia (Molat) SUP Adventure
Croatia is one of the top destinations for SUP touring in the world, and Mike’s Paddle leads an 8 day, 7 night fall SUP adventure on the Croatian island of Molat, on the scenic Adriatic Sea. The water is warm, the food is excellent and our adventure will take you off the beaten path most tourists travel, as we have an outstanding local guide, Marko. We’ll explore areas of Molat that most tourists never get to experience.
Our adventures are designed for all different paddling and yoga levels and include local adventures both on and off the water. Everything depends on the wind and waves, but we usually start the day with a yoga practice on land or SUP. We’ll typically paddle 1-2 miles daily, with a 5 mile paddle on our final day. We’ll cycle for transportation and excursions, hike around the area and even explore a Soviet-era submarine cave by SUP! Our bad weather backup plan is wine tasting.
The small island of Molat has no real hotels or resorts, so we partner with locals on the island to provide beautiful modern apartments, cozy bed & breakfasts and lovely houses to host our guests. This gives you all the comforts of home and a true Eastern European feel that adds to the high quality experience of this adventure. Participant’s accommodations are spread out around town, so bicycles are provided for meeting up for group activities.
Croatian cuisine is Mediterranean, and has similarities to both Italian and Greek food. Many Californians love it, because there are items we’re used to having at home (seafood, pizza, pasta, veggies and fruit), yet also plenty of exotic local cuisine to try, such as blitva -- swiss chard made with potatoes in an infinite variety of recipes -- and meats prepared in an ispod peke, an upside-down Dutch oven. Salads, fresh bread, fruit, prosciutto and cheese are abundant, and the fish and shellfish couldn’t get any fresher.
We time our Croatia trips in the fall for the peace of the off-season and the perfect weather. Most days are between 80 and 90 degrees, and the evenings are typically 65-75. It’s typically sunny, but thunderstorms and chilly temperatures occasionally roll in.
Previous trips have been priced at either $2,500 or $3,000 depending on choice of accommodations (shared or private) and include accommodations, most meals and all equipment and adventures. Travel from SFO to a European hub with an overnight stay and then a flight to Zadar (ZAD) is typically required, and the cost of these, as well as transportation to and from your accommodations in Molate, are not included.
