Cres island landscape adventure

In our search for a place that combines extraordinary landscapes and adventure together with gastronomy and history, we quickly focused on the island of Cres in Croatia, a welcome addition to the Croatia Photo Tour offer.

What makes Cres special is how nature played with the given ingredients— crystal clear Adriatic Sea, tall hills and mountains with occasional sharp drops, a freshwater island lake, enchanting forests, and the footprints of humans who have made their mark here for centuries. A landscape workshop relies almost entirely on what can be seen and found all around. And Cres gives any visitor numerous opportunities to explore and be amazed. Combine that with the local expertise of our team, who can point out the place to be at sunrise and sunset, guide you through the ancient gastronomy, and, of course, show you a good time.

Our local photographer experts have made sure to bring you to awesome locations, give you instructions when needed and deliver some extraordinary experiences to take home. These tours are our pleasure also, so expect to see a big smile on our faces for the entire week. Since this is a small group tour, it is also quite flexible in terms of locations and time. The whole point is to have fun, right?
