This trip provides families the chance to explore the less traveled routes of southern Croatia thereby getting to the heart of what, to me, makes it one of the most special places in Europe.

Greenloons is offering eco-minded explorers the chance to tap into their fondness for all things 'Game of Thrones' with a new custom trip added to its Green Vacation Collection, the Southern Croatia Sustainable Family Adventure.
Set against the backdrops of the ancient fortresses, stone walls, and churches featured in the television show, families will have the opportunity to learn about history and local folklore, participate in cycling, hiking and cooking activities, stay at distinctive lodgings, and immerse themselves in the beauty of this coastal region.
"We are proud to be featuring local, unique and sustainable travel options throughout this community oriented and socially aware Croatian experience," says Irene Lane, the founder of Greenloons who personally vetted this adventure earlier this summer. "This trip provides families the chance to explore the less traveled routes of southern Croatia thereby getting to the heart of what, to me, makes it one of the most special places in Europe."
With the new Southern Croatia Cultural Adventure, guests will discover the best of Dubrovnik and Split in this fully guided and customized trip offering hiking, biking and rafting adventures along with cultural and culinary activities and plenty of downtime to reconnect as a family. They'll learn about Omis' pirate history and relax on the Omis Riviera, raft along River Centina's beautiful nature reserve, see Ston's impressive stone wall (the longest in Europe), walk the old town of Dubrovnik, climb Lovrijenac Fortress, paddle to hidden caves and beaches, learn how to make local delicacies, and trace history to the Paleolithic and Neolithic times. (8 days; flexible departures; from $1,950 per person including locally owned accommodations, some meals, transport, activities, and guides.)
