World's Biggest Welcome in Croatia: Day 12 - Martinšćica to Mali Lošinj (Kayak, Foot, Bike)

April 7, 2019 - Putting Croatian adventure tourism on the map, with the biggest welcome in the world. Day 12 of this incredible 2011 adrenaline trip covering 2,500 km along the Croatian coast. 

The World's Biggest Welcome, an ambitious adventure tourism project in 2011 in Croatia enters Day 12 of this 2019 appreciation of one of the finest tourism promotion projects ever in Croatia.  

The plan? To showcase the diversity and fabulous offer of adventure tourism in Croatia by following a GPS route the length of the Croatian coast in the shape of the word 'Welcome' - thereby creating the biggest welcome in the world from a hospitable tourism country. 

Day 12 moved on kayak, foot, and bike from Martinšćica to Mali Lošinj.

41 kilometers for the day: 15 km by kayak from Martinšćica to Osor, followed by 26 km on foot and bike from Osor to Mali Lošinj to continue forming the ‘E’ in ‘Welcome’.


And it begins on the island of Cres, making their way towards Osor. 


The narrow channel between Cres and Lošinj in Osor. 


And onto Osorscica.


With a much-needed moment to take in the hazy view from Osorscica.


The picture-perfect Sv. Mikula in Osorscica. 


And a wild view from Osorscica onto Mali and Veli Lošinj. 


Finally in Lošinj to stop and look at the reflection of a very colorful boat. Lacko considers it the most creative thing they did that day. 


They made it to Lošinj just in time to catch the festival of local cuisine. 



Of course, they had to try it. 

A key part of the project was promoting tourism, and the official website has details of the key places visited during the day.
