Along the coast and uphill. On and off road. All in remarkably diverse scenery. Get an extra dose of amazing experiences on your holiday by being active on the island of Krk! Check out how and why it’s your perfect destination to become and keep fit while enjoying it every step of the way:
Excellent weather conditions
Look on the sunny side of Krk! As one of the sunniest parts of Europe with 2500 annual sunshine hours on average, the island is a very welcoming place for outdoor activities most time of the year. The coldest months are January and December with average temperatures between 4-10 degrees and greater possibility of rain than in other periods. However, starting with awakening of nature in spring till well into colourful autumn, Krk offers you favourable conditions for a number of activities such as running, hiking and cycling.
Active holiday seekers’ paradise
Rise and shine… at your favourite activity in the perfect setting on Krk! Apart from being one of the most accessible islands and destinations in general both by road and air, there are several accommodation providers such as Malin Hotel welcoming guests all year round. In other words, the island is your feel-good place where you can boost your well-being and engage in diverse outdoor activities using the elaborate network of trails and paths along the coast, past olive groves, up and downhill, whenever you catch a moment to get away.
Hosts like Malin Hotel also go a step further by providing special perks during your stay. For example, as a run-friendly hotel it welcomes running enthusiasts with a special package that includes a Run guide and T-shirt, energy package and a spa discount to relax after your workout. The hotel also offers a bike rental service.
Fun and challenging events
Ready for a dare? Be it (trail) running or cycling, why not put your abilities to test and take part in numerous sporting events held on the island all year round. Follow the events calendar for upcoming events – run along Malinska Trail, a part of a larger Kvarner Trails competition, on November 9 2019, then write your Krk Bike Story in spring. Take a pick among these attractive events and use them as a wonderful excuse for a holiday break on Krk.
Highlights for the fans of the outdoors on Krk
Stunning scenery and being active, the perfect combination! Krk provides a multitude of paths and trails for running, hiking and cycling leading through amazing nature both on the coast and in the interior of the island.
Malinska alone offers several routes with lengths varying from just a few kilometres such as Marina or Lungo Mare paths to longer ones such as Fumak or Rajska cesta (‘Paradise Road’), all of which you can start from the Malin Hotel. For even more adventure and challenge, why not also try a 21-km circular trail Malinska-Barušići-Porat with the final part along the coast.
