By staying in Adria Mare apartments, you have a unique opportunity of enjoying one-day trips in Vodice’s vicinity. For example, Kornati is located only 25 km away from Vodice and you should definitely visit it. You can get to know Kornati National Park with an excursion boat, which will guide you through the archipelago rich in flora and fauna. You will be delighted by the fact that there are rare animal species and over 500 different plant species living on the islands. The adventurous ones can have their moment there and take part in scuba diving and submarine exploration. Who knows, maybe you will see a dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) or rare sea turtles on your Kornati excursion!
Located only 25 km away from Vodice, there is National Park Krka, where beautiful waterfalls of the clear Krka river dominate the environment. Thanks to the fact that the river flows through a deep canyon, it hits rocks on its way and creates incredible waterfalls: Skradinski buk, Bilušića buk, Rošnjak, Roški slap… On Krka river you can enjoy boat cruises, while the braver ones can take part in rafting. For fans of somewhat more peaceful tourism, there is an educational walk which provides information on plant and animal species which found their natural habitat in Krka National Park. Besides beautiful nature sights, this park offers both cultural and historical attraction, as well as sacral objects worth visiting. You can go to the Monastery of St. Archangel or visit the Franciscan monastery from the 15th century on Visovac island.
