Camino Krk Story

Guided walks along the camino krk route and themed talks

Camino Krk, a 150-kilometre long circular route, has quickly become a very popular outdoor activity on the island and caught attention of hospitality and tourism experts. In 2021, the project won the third prize at the Skål International Sustainable Tourism Awards and was awarded a golden charter at the 9th Sunflower Rural Tourism Award, in the category of Active Tourist Facilities in Rural Areas.

Camino Krk, as the first section of the Croatian Camino route, joined the European network of St James’s ways, with Camino de Santiago (the St James Way) being  the most popular one. It is about an 800-kilometre long pilgrimage route, walked by more than 300,000 pilgrims each year.

Camino Krk Story

Walking the route of Camino Krk is an excellent springtime activity. The spring here brings pleasant temperatures, nice weather and blossoming nature – a perfect setting for a 7-day stay on the island of Krk. For those who are not quite sure about walking the 150 kilometres of the Camino Krk route or lack time for a full 7-day experience, local tourist boards have jointly designed the Camino Krk Story project.

The 3-day Camino Krk Story is a free weekend programme with expert guidance, themed talks, refreshments and organised transport!
