So, get ready for a unique holiday experience and here’s how you can make the most of it:
A part of the big picture
So much more than just a camino (Spanish ‘path, way, trail, journey’)! Camino Krk forms part of the Camino de Santiago network of trails. Namely, what was originally a pilgrimage path almost a thousand kilometers long leading to Santiago de Compostela in Spain, has come to include a number of other trails across Europe. The first such Camino in Croatia has been marked on the island of Krk.
The circular path on Krk leads through the countryside, hamlets and historical towns, and along the coast, allowing you to fully appreciate the beauty of the island. However, it’s not only about actively exploring the island and its natural and cultural-historical heritage. It can serve as inspiration, source of fulfillment, and spiritual awakening.
