Embark on an Adventure: Exploring the Unseen Beauty of Croatia

Circumnavigating All Croatian Islands

Bafo and I, affectionately known as Yogi, embarked on an extraordinary odyssey that transcends the boundaries of ordinary exploration. Our vision: is to circumnavigate the entirety of Croatia's stunning coastal archipelago, which boasts a breathtaking array of 1244 islands, islets, rocks, and reefs.

Among these, 78 are classified as islands, 524 as islets, and 642 as rocks and reefs, each holding its unique allure and mystique. Thus was born our ambitious endeavor, aptly christened the "Lifetime Expedition," a title that encapsulates our commitment to embarking on this journey with no sense of haste or urgency, but rather a profound reverence for the landscapes we traverse and the experiences we encounter along the way.

As we navigate our way through this maritime labyrinth, our journey unfolds with a sense of purpose and wonder. To date, we have charted our course to approximately 150 of these remarkable destinations, with our focus primarily on islands and islets, interspersed with the occasional exploration of rocky outcrops that dot the coastline. Yet, our exploration goes beyond mere cartography; it is a journey of discovery, a quest to unveil the hidden treasures and untold stories concealed within each nook and cranny of these remote isles.


Our approach is meticulous and comprehensive. We leave no bay unexplored, no beach unvisited, and no cove uncharted. Every inlet, every promontory, every inlet holds the promise of adventure and discovery, beckoning us to delve deeper into its secrets. This commitment to thorough exploration entails an estimated total distance of approximately 4,500 kilometers—a testament to the vastness of the coastal landscape and the boundless opportunities it presents for discovery and adventure.

But our expedition is not merely about covering the ground; it is about forging connections—with the land, with the sea, and with the people who call these islands home. As fellow islanders, hailing from one of the 48 inhabited islands, we share a deep kinship with the local inhabitants—a bond that transcends mere geography. Through meaningful interactions and conversations, we gain invaluable insights into their way of life, traditions, and challenges, enriching our understanding of the cultural tapestry that defines coastal Croatia.

In the end, our journey is more than just a voyage of physical exploration; it is a celebration of the human spirit and the enduring allure of adventure. It is a testament to the power of curiosity, perseverance, and friendship —the qualities that drive us to venture beyond the horizon in search of the unknown. As we continue to chart our course through the azure waters of the Adriatic, we do so with a sense of purpose and wonder, knowing that every island, every islet, and every rocky outcrop holds the promise of discoveries and unforgettable experiences.
