From Šibenik, you will sail to the island Prvić. Prvić is a small island in the Croatian part of Adriatic Sea. It is situated in the Šibenik archipelago, about half a mile from the mainland, in the vicinity of Vodice. The whole island is under protection of the Croatian Ministry of Culture since the island is considered a cultural heritage.

On the island, you will practice yoga among olive groves and have a chance to meet the nature which surrounds you.

You will spend nights afloat in safe anchorages and well protected bays beneath brilliant starry skies, with the opportunity for memorable night swims.

During the sail, Kornati Islands National park, an area of great natural beauty containing more than 300 small islands will take your breath away.

The islands of Kornati are the island paradise, an archipelago with the highest density on the entire Mediterranean, exceptional because, with their raw beauty, they remained intact of the development of the modern time.
Situated in the middle part of Croatian Adriatic, near to the island of Murter. Beacuse of their exceptional beauty, indentedness of the coast, preserved nature and rich maritime ecosystem, a bigger part of Kornati islands was pronounced a national park.

The village called Vrulja (the most inhabitated village on Kornati islands) counts 7 people living in the village and yoga will be practiced on the top of the hill.

After yoga, dinner will be served in local tavern where you will meet local people, get to know about the island and taste fresh products. 

The Telašćica bay, after which the whole Nature Park got the name, is situated on the south-eastern part of the island Dugi otok. It is retracted into the land about 8 km and on its south side is the widest part of about 1.6 km. That part of the bay which is turned towards the south-east, is open towards the neighbouring Kornati islands. The bay itself is very indented with 25 bays, capes and 5 islands. Thanks to its position it is protected from the blows of the north-eastern wind from the mainland and the south wind from the open sea.

Salt lake “Mir” is located in the south-western part of the Nature Park Telašćica. The lake is situated in a narrow area of land between the bay Telašćica and the open sea where you will practice yoga.

The perfect ending of the day will be at sunset when you will practice yoga and meditate.

Island Dugi otok is the seventh largest island in the Adriatic Sea, part of Croatia It is located off the Dalmatian coast, west of Zadar. It is the largest and easternmost of the Zadarian Islands, and derives its name from its distinctive shape (it is 45 km long by 5 km wide with an area of 114 square kilometres.

It is about 800 meters long and at some 250 meters from the shore it is 3.5 meters deep, which means that the bathing area is extremely large and shallow and suitable even for young children.
