ITINEARY 

Trail running on Croatian islands outside the main tourist season is a true gem you simply have to discover. Krk Island is the perfect choice for such adventures, also due to its great accessibility, as a bridge connects it to the mainland.

Stunning Adriatic coastline, diverse terrains and discovering the islands through running – a completely different experience than a classic beach vacation.

Best of Krk Trail Running weekend is a great choice to discover this area’s diversity. You’ll discover not only nature, but also tiny island cities, such as Baška and Krk Town, where they specialize in good food and tasty local wines – and not only that, we can guarantee tasty cold beer can be found as well.

This trail running adventure consists of circular tours from this island’s prettiest parts – Baška and Krk Town. Despite this being a shorter programme, we can guarantee it’ll still be just as adventurous.

Krk Island is a part of Kvarner Bay, which is crowded with stunning little islands, Krk being the biggest one in this area.

This island, outside its main tourist season, is an outdoor adventure heaven, so the perfect time to visit is mostly during spring and autumn.

Day 1

Distance: 30 km

Elevation: 615 m

Highest point: 232 m

Through vineyards and olive plantations

Arrival to Baška Town on island Krk, where you’ll settle in and have dinner. If you arrive sooner, you can stop by in Krk Town, where your first trail running adventure awaits.

Your first stage introduces you to the island’s western side, where single trails and macadam take you through stunning vineyards and olive plantations. This is a circular tour, so you’ll also finish your adventure in Krk Town.

Krk Town prides itself on its stunning old town, which is one of the oldest on the whole Adriatic coastline. We suggest you take some time off to take it all in and enjoy it to the fullest. There are also numerous tiny stores, cafes and restaurants.

Day 2

Distance: 25 km

Elevation: 460 m

Highest point: 397 m

Mesečev plato (Meet Moon Plateau)

This stage introduces you to the south-eastern part of the island. This is, again, a circular tour, so you start and finish your adventure in Baška Town.

The main gem for today’s trail running adventure is Moon plateau, covering the whole south-western part of the island and giving us incredible trails to run on. Today’s highlight is for sure the scenic descent to Baška Town, which you’ll be able to enjoy on a truly stunning and scenic single trail.

Baška Town is surrounded by woodlands, numerous sand and pebble beaches – their most notable one is for sure 1800 meters long Baška beach. 

The city is also known for its many restaurants and cafes, where you can indulge in tasty seafood meals.

Day 3

Distance: 34 km

Elevation: 1260 m

Highest point: 560 m

From Stara Baška to Punat

Our second day in Baška Town is dedicated to the south-western part of Krk Island.

Today’s stage is a bit rockier and by that a bit tougher, as we’ll be exploring the island’s highest points, where we’ll climb more than 500 meters above sea level.

We won’t, however, forget about the stunning coastline. This stage connects three unique tiny cities – Baška, Stara Baška and Punat. 

This stage will give you more than enough time to enjoy a snack, take a lunch break, enjoy a glass of wine or a pint of cold beer.

Day 4

Distance: 26 km

Elevation: 450 m

Highest point: 290 m

Get to know Krk Island's hinterland

Once we check out of our hotel, we’ll drive to Krk Town, where our final day adventure starts, during which we’ll get to know Krk Island’s hinterland. But no worries, you’ll return to the stunning Adriatic shore and Krk Town at the end of this stage.

This stage is a combination of trails and macadams, leading you through vineyards, olive plantations and oak forests. This short trail running adventure will allow you to get to know numerous things that make the Adriatic shore so special.

The end of this run also marks the end of your trail running adventure. You are of course more than welcome to take a few additional days to explore Krk Island or maybe some of the nearby islands.

In case you might be looking for a longer trail running adventure, you can consider looking into our Cross Krk’n’Rab tour.
