Although we might be biased, we can’t think of a greater place than the Adriatic Coast to spend a family holiday! Aside from the family-friendly beaches, beautiful national parks and intriguing natural wonders, these coastal countries give kids the chance to use their imaginations and simply play. We’ve told you a lot about family travel to Croatia recently, so we wanted to point out some of our favorite activities in a few other exciting countries on the Adriatic. We can combine any of these countries with Croatia, Montenegro, Italy and even others to create a personalized trip just for your family.

Here is our guide to three emerging destinations on the Adriatic Coast:

 

Slovenia

Bled, Slovenia

Slovenia is a place for kids who like to be outside. Let them wander up the mountain trails to the crystal lakes of the Julian Alps, follow a private guide through the famous Postojna Caves, or explore the majestic Predjama Castle. Whatever adventures you choose, your kids will leave Slovenia with lungs full of fresh air, an immersive history lesson and a new outlook on the world. Ask us which countries we recommend pairing with Slovenia to explore even more of the Adriatic!

Bosnia

Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina

Kids will love the fairytale setting – the colorful buildings, the energy of the Old Bazaar, the citrus trees and the markets filled with fresh food and fun souvenirs. This emerging destination has become a hidden gem among culturally  minded families who also love the Great Outdooors. Easily combine Bosnia with Croatia, Slovenia, Montenegro, Italy or Albania to create a custom trip full of adventure.
