It was an amazing family experience. First time on a kayak and never climbed before. The staff were very helpful, whenever you do something wrong, they give confidence and the skills. Brac is beautiful, the varied landscapes are amazing. From rolling hills to perfect coastlines. Climbing for me was the best, my wife loved the SUP boarding and my twin teens loved the cycling. If coming to Croatia, do the Brac island experience for the week. You’ll leave as a family team.

If you’re looking for an outdoors family activity hoiday in Croatia I’d definitely recommend a trip with Croatia Family holidays. The staff were fun and helpful from start to finish and we always felt safe with the instructors. We went in August and the heat was delightful. Gorgeous warm breezes and sunshine beaming off the Adriatic Sea. We didn’t feel rushed and enjoyed our island time leisurely paddling, biking, climbing, splashing, laughing, eating. This is a wow-factor holiday. Maybe not cheap, but totally worth it. Big family experience!

We did the Croatia island adventure week in July this year and it was great! The temperature of the water was like bath water, I never wanted to get out. The location is perfect for families with kids or teenagers. All the ages got on really well. Your office staff were very transparent about ages/genders of other kids booked on. During the active holiday in Croatia we were guided by Russo and he did a great job! I imagine Brac will be in the spot light soon, so I urge families to get there now rather than later.
Sue Parsons , Swansea
Lovely experience thanks Russo. Without too many spoilers for families reading this, we came away on a real high. Brac island is a gem. The apartments are modern and perfectly located. I ran most days along the sea front, ending with a swim in the sea. The village is so tranquil in the morning and the sunsets are burning orange, pinks and reds. We would change a thing and will be joining your family mainland trip next season. Thanks from me, Alice and the boys.
Colin Thurton, Worcester
This is probably the best family adventure holiday you can go on in Europe hands down. You get to kayak, Sup board, bike and cycle, plus loads more hidden surprises. Brilliant fun. We were with families who had never done an active holiday before but it didn’t matter because Dan and Russo are the best. Fantastic fun. Highlight of our trip was the climbing – thank you
Debbie Spencer , Cork
The Accommodation was very nice, clean, comfortable, each apartment overlooking the pool area. We spent 7 nights on this fabulous Croatia family adventure holiday on Brac island. Each day wassuperb, lots of laughing and playing with other families. The local village is just gorgeous, I could live there in a heartbeat. Here on our days off we used to spend the whole day without any need to go anywhere far. Everything is 5 minutes walk. Kids were safe, parents were happy, locals friendly. Our hosts that run the activity week are very friendly, they really try hard to make their guests feel comfortable on vacation. Russo and Daniel are just delightful.
Helen Spriggs, Derby
All personnel were very friendly and helpful. The activities were great and designed to the correct tempo for families. You are running a eco minded personal business, in a beautiful part of the world. Thank you from all our family.
Elliot Christchurch, Birmingham
As a family we had been to Croatia before, but not as a planned family activity holiday with other people. We liked the flexibility in the trip and at the same time, lots of pre-planned days. We bonded with our children and had ‘ME’ time aswell. Surprisingly, this adventure holiday was relaxing. My teenagers were off having fun and I knew they were safe and very happy. Your guides, Russo and Josip are excellent.
Magda Peters, Hetton
I wouldn’t hesitate to book with you guys again. The Brac island experience is just super. My teen daughters and young son, can’t stop talking about the days of fun we had. Defo enjoyable days and fun nights. We met lots of nice families, the accommodation super and very safe for kids. Tour Leaders were masterful at there craft. Obviously professional and flexible to our needs. Russo was great with the kids and engaging with the parents. The staff couldn’t do enough for us. For people that are traveling responsibly. These are low impacting activities on the environment and this company supports conservation and pro-actively encourages ec0 policies. We donated to their clean beaches charity, which the company matched in donation. We thought that was nice, and very different to big companies. We had a great stay.
James Payne, Sheffield
All the Tour Leaders and guides have been fabulous from the initial contact with the office to the staff at the resort. Big shout to Drinna for joining in the activities and guiding us to so much fun. Speed boat was epic, as was the canyoning. Local people made us feel very welcome and we found many wonderful sides to this Dalmatia area. Top tip – buy water shoes for pebble beaches.
Nick Davis, Chiswick
Staff were friendly, and very sweet with my youngest son Toby. Zara my eldest loved meeting so many girls her own age, which took the pressure off mum and dad. We all felt ‘Looked after’ and really can see why people rave about Croatia. The food is Italian style, but maybe less refined with bigger portions. The nature is simply beautiful and the activities we experienced were extremely well operated. We really respect how your company runs the daily tours and co-ordinates with all the families. Its not an easy job, but you make it look easy. We had a great stay and would encourage others to simply ‘Go!’
Alice Beckett, Glasgow
If you haven’t been to Croatia, then you must go! If you are going to go, then book with Croatia Family Holidays. Apart from the bus driver that got us lost on the way to climbing (it was funny though), this family activity holiday is the best we’ve experienced in Europe (now our 6th trip). Brac island is delightful, and without mass tourism. The water is gorgeous, you can literally spend hours swimming and snorkelling and not get cold. Our favourite activity was SUP boarding and the climbing (when we got there lol). Really well organised and many thanks to Russo, and Dan the Man.
Katy Geary, Stoke
Family Croatia activity holidays definitely are suited to the region. Thank you for making it such a fabulous week for the kids. There were very sad goodbyes at the airport and we would consider coming again. What’s not to like? Good food, great weather, lovely people. Hope that answers your questions, thx Marie x
Karen Whittle, Chester
Great mix of adults and children, great guides and hosts! We loved the country, history and scenery. Thank you to all! Louise x
Louise Tavistock, East Sheen
Our guides on Brac island were excellent. I graded the equipment and safety as excellent throughout. When asked about the apartment standard of rooms, food and the staff, again..yes – excellent. In fact the food – Amazing! The portions were huge and so really filling, perfect for after a mad day of activities. Overall experience, u guessed it – excellent. Oh and can i just also praise the office staff. The knowledge and support of your travel manager was excellent. We had never heard of Brac island and grateful we listened to you. If you have children in the tricky teenage ages, then this is a must-do holiday, that brings the family together. Thanks Daniel and Peter.
Laura Finlayson, Kettering
We had a great stay on Brac island and very much enjoyed our stay with your team. For me, I liked the fact we were kept entertained and busy. My husband is a bit more of a pool and book man, but even he loved the new challenges and experiences. We made lots of new friends during the activity days, and most we only 5-15 minute bike away. So we often buddied up with other families during afternoons and evenings. We participated in some incredible activities and the staff were great personalities and very kind to our 2 kids. The facilities for the sports we booked were brilliant and 100% safe, no grumbles there. Apartment was very nice and of course the location is divine. Brac was a lovely place to chill, and we even made it to the mainland one day to see Split. The island is very picturesque and NOT a bit over run with tourists, so glad we came to Brac instead of Hvar. Overall, the combination of activities was right for our family, the Croatians were a delight and I would recommend to others seeking this type of family vacation to go for it. Thank you to Daniel and his staff x
Harriet Knebworth, Guildford
The Brac active holiday was great fun. We were blown away by the raw nature and thought all the local Croatians we came in contact with were charming. Food was delicious; so much organic farming and fresh produce you certainly came back feeling fit and invigorated. Great trip – thank you!
Kylie Bennett, Margate
We got married in Split many years ago in the old town and often talked about the area with our children. So now the children being 13 and 16, we thought we’d show them the beauty of this country. Initially, we had settled on Hvar island, but are now so thankful of your guidance – to have reconsidered and chosen Brac as our base for 10 nights. Maria was our travel manager and couldn’t have been more helpful. The apartments were fantastic. Nice swimming pool, WiFi to keep the kids happy and the sea was a short stroll away. Inside the apartments, best described as: modern , fresh, clean and well run, so no complaints but don’t come for luxury. The nearby supermarket was perfect for daily breakfast. Throughout our stay the staff were amazing, friendly on reception, welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. Climbing was a fantastic experience, and super booster to me personally, as I’m not that comfortable with heights. I’m so happy I’d didn’t sit out or change the activity! Second favourite for me, but the family fav was definitely the sea kayaking. Transfers worked well, and even no complaints with EasyJet. All in, a wonderful trip. Many thanks.
David Baxter, Crawley
Thanks for following up – I am a bit snowed under at the moment with catch up jobs as I have been away for 6 weeks! I will write a more detailed email soon but overall, Alex and I had a wonderful time – Ante and his team were great. They were friendly, attentive, and informative and nothing was too much trouble. We really did feel that we had a “tailor made” experience and we saw various aspects of Croatia. Kind Regards Lizanne.
Lizanne Knights, Swansea
My wife and kids spent a week here. The accommodation was simply amazing. Rooms were of a 3 star nature, but the views were 5 stars. Most important were the very friendly staff who really tried to make your stay enjoyable. Our local guide Russo was a true gent. The tubing days worked very well, with good equipment provided by your tour leaders. Guided tours were diverse and well organised. Overall very good value and thoroughly enjoyed this trip. Remember to pack lots of sun cream, Croatia is blue skies and hot. Old trainers recommended, although you can rent canyoning boots at the shop. We were advised to bring one large beach towel, we would say bring two per head.
Simon Parks, Nottingham
Super super super. I needed the wow factor for my boys this summer (stupid Dad let them down last year) and this was the ticket! The VIP, Gold, Willy Wonka ticket! We are still all buzzing, the boys can’t stop posting their pictures onto their Instagram’s and Facebook’s (a sign of success I’m told). Thank so much for making me the super-Dad!
Jon Howls, Richmond
This was a new style of vacation for our family, and one we would consider repeating in Europe. Croatia is a beautifully formed country, the people and nature are delightful.
