What to do in Croatia during winter?

Here are some of the top activities that you can explore while visiting the country during winter:

Historical tours

Winter is the ideal time to delve into the rich history of Croatian coastal towns. Places like Dubrovnik’s old town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, are less crowded, allowing for a more intimate exploration of its ancient walls and historical buildings, as well as the town's museums. Another amazing option is visiting the charming Istrian hilltop towns, such as Motovun, Grožnjan, and Buzet.

Nature walks and hiking

The milder winter climate is perfect for outdoor activities. The Plitvice Lakes National Park, another Croatian UNESCO World Heritage site, is an amazing place to visit all year round, especially during winter when the park and its 16 lakes, linked by magical waterfalls, become a real-life winter wonderland.

Island hopping

With fewer tourists, winter is a great time to explore the islands. Each island has its unique charm and history, from the picturesque towns of Krk island to the medieval architecture and untouched nature of Korčula island.

Culinary and wine delights

Croatian cuisine is a blend of Mediterranean and Slavic influences. Winter is the season for trying traditional winter dishes like pašticada and fritule, as well as the perfect time to explore some of the best wineries in Istria to learn about local traditions of winemaking while avoiding large summer crowds.

Luxurious stay at Aminess hotels

For those seeking a luxurious stay, the coastal part of Croatia offers exquisite accommodation options, like the Aminess Maestral Hotel in Novigrad and the Aminess Korčula Heritage Hotel.
