“This is the third UTracks self-guided hiking trip we've taken. It was probably the most enjoyable. We went in mid-July. The temperatures were cool, the views were spectacular and the trails well-marked and easy to follow. While we saw a few hikers each day, the trails were otherwise quiet and ours to enjoy. Some of the hiking can be a little grueling, but overall I found it very manageable, and the designation as a "moderate" hike seems fair. I would definitely recommend it; and it made me want to spend more time in the west of Ireland.”

“Great trip, very enjoyable experience. There was no sailing, more cruise and bike. Sailing would not be ideal for this program, as meals were taken during boat travel several times. The boat was very well appointed and comfortable, with great meals and service. The rides were quite manageable for all, but could provide a more detailed account of distances and elevations so you were well prepared. Beautiful scenery, coves for swimming and harbours to visit. Optional rafting trip was actually a lot of fun. Great all round way to see Croatia.”

“The entire staff were personable, friendly, helpful, competent and spoke English well. We were particularly impressed with our guide, Wieger Douma, who kept us on track and on pace, and always got us back to the ship on time. It was uncanny how well he knew the route, the timing and the places to take breaks; he never steered us wrong even once, and made us feel confident and safe. His knowledge of the sights to see along the way and at our destinations was comprehensive, and he generously shared an encyclopedic memory of historical details that enriched our experience. Marco was a great host and captain, with a warm personality and excellent piloting skills. Our kitchen staff: Astrid and Nelleke were fine cooks and servers, and they too were very accommodating and friendly.”
