What you'll be doing

Hotel Valamar Meteor

Hotel Valamar Meteor stands at the foot of the majestic Biokovo mountains overlooking the sea, with access to the seafront promenade and pebble beach of Makarska.

The hotel is contemporary in design and has a modern feel to it, offering a wide choice of pretty spots to take advantage of the beautiful views. A favourite may have to be the outdoor infinity pool that offers a spectacular sea view!  The resort centre is just a short walk away along the seafront promenade, offering an array of shops, restaurants and lively bars.


Makarska is a smart seaside town, with its pretty promenade, shops, bars and restaurants. The town also provides a great base for those who want a bit of a mix of everything, from beaches to nightlife, as well as sightseeing and adventure. Make the most of it, with easy access along the coast to Spilt, day trips up to the Biokovo Mountains and also ferry and catamaran connections to the island of Brac.

If lazy days close to base are more your thing, there’s plenty to see. Including St. Mark’s Church on the main square, which dates back to 1776 and the Franciscan monastery, which was founded and built in 1614 and now homes the Malacological museum where you can see the largest collection of snails, shells and mussels.

Included tour 1 - Omiš & Cetina River Tour

As part of our package, we spend the day sightseeing along the Cetina River to Omis. Our first stop is the Gubavica Waterfall – the highest waterfall on the Cetina River. We then continue through the villages towards Omiš. Before arriving in Omiš, we stop at the cliff above the city to get stunning views over the ocean, Brac Islan and Cetina Canyon. Omiš is known for its history of piracy. This charming city is home to many medieval fortresses, the most famous once being a 13th Century Mirabelle Fortress, and a 15th Century Fortress Starigrad (Fortica). In addition, Omiš has a beautiful sandy beach, peppered with restaurants and cafes. We enjoy some free time exploring the city before we hop on a boat for a ride up the Canyon of Cetina River. Our lunch will be taken along the river banks, where we enjoy dalmatian delicacies including meat and potatoes cooked under a traditional cast-iron bell. After lunch, we head back to our hotel and the resort of Makarska.

Included tour 2 - Biokovo Skywalk Tour

At first glance, the Biokovo mountain looks grey and scanty, however close-up, the mountain provides a great variety of flora and fauna. Our second included tour allows us to discover the most beautiful parts of this mountainous region of Dalmatia, including a glass platform ‘skywalk’.

We pop our walking boots on to make the climb to the highest peak in Croatia – St. Jure, which offers views over the coastal towns and cities, neighbouring islands, olive groves and abandoned vineyard terraces. One you’ll want photographic evidence of!

The skywalk is a real treat where you can walk out on a purpose built glass walkway to take in the vastness of the scenery around you!
