New Zealand, and in particular Queensland, may have earned the reputation of being the Adventure Capital of the World, but unknown to them, another country is plotting to steal that title….

Indeed Queensland in New Zealand may boast a plethora of adventurous activities but being a monstrous 26 hour journey away from more or less anywhere in Europe; it makes it only a location accessible for those with plenty of time and money. To that end, more often than not Europeans and especially the British and Irish contingent are searching for adventure holidays that are a little closer to home, and accessible by a budget flight.

And this is where the latest contender, Croatia, is surpassing Queensland. Being only  a two and a half hour flight away, with budget friendly airlines like Easyjet, Ryanair, Jet2 and Flybe offering up services to Zagreb, Split, Dubrovnik, Rijeka and Zadar, Croatia has never been easier or cheaper to get to.

However whilst the lure of cheap flights alone is not a great enough to bring people to Croatia for an adventure holiday, when you combine this with the impressive array of available activities waiting for you as you arrive, this is helping to draw more and more holidaymakers. Like flights, the number of tour operators that are offering adventure holidays in Croatia is increasing, an example of these in is online tour operator ActivityBreaks.com who still offer great adventure holidays here at prices that wont break the bank such as their 7 night adventure break from £496, the Sea Kayaking Holiday from £496 and Adventure sailing package from £723.

Either way, if you are thinking of an adventure holiday for this summer, and don’t fancy spending a day in the air to get to New Zealand, then why not join the new wave of thrill seekers heading to Croatia for their summer? You will have a great time, and you bank balance will love it too!
