Active Hostel Break ... in Zadar in 2021

Zadar Region


Sometimes a break is just what you need. Preferably in a great place. If possible, by the sea. Ideally, taking it easy and doing exactly what feels right in a given moment. Like the idea of that? Then make it happen … by taking an active hostel break in Zadar in 2021! 


A city break, coming right up

Precisely what the doctor ordered. Be it a weekend getaway or a one-week stay, treat yourself to a timeout, me-time, escape from weekly routine, some excitement and new stories to tell. 


A place to stay, please

Unique experiences in Zadar are priceless. But for the things that do have a price tag, make sure you get a great value for money. Like choosing the right hostel.


For example, staying at Boutique Hostel Forum is smart. And affordable. And comes with the best views. And with the perfect location in the center close to top places of interest. Not to mention the best tips for all things Zadar-related.


Your Active Getaway in Zadar in 2021


Aaaaand, action!

Keep it buzzing in Zadar and wider! Be as active as you feel like, but know that the city and the region offer a lot to choose from.


Go Zzum! Not only because they offer bike and ebike rentals, but also provide excellent tips and cycling tours. There are a number of cycling routes in the region, altogether 3000 km of trails. You can take a light ride to Nin or a longer one towards Biograd na Moru along the coast or head into the hinterland. How about hopping on the green island of Ugljan and riding to its top for great views? Study the numerous available trails on the Zadar Bike Magic website and just go for a ride!  (The prices of rentals vary between €13,5 (for regular bikes) and €45 (for e-bikes) per day.)


Or keep your feet to the ground, literally. If you’re a hiking enthusiast, you will particularly love the trails on the islands of Ugljan, Pašman and Pag, not to mention along the Zrmanja river and its tributary Krupa. Still, a hiking hotspot in the region is definitely Paklenica National Park, just an hour away from Zadar. From shorter educational trails to challenging hikes, you are in for a real treat.


Hop in a kayak …and paddle away! Get an image of just how impressive Zadar is by going on a kayak tour in the city (for less than €40). You can also get to know the Zrmanja river by kayaking or rafting, depending on the season. Both activities will give you something to talk about and can be arranged with transfer from Zadar (for cca €60 per person).
