Experiential Travel

Spark your curiosity…

Croatia abounds in natural and cultural diversity, and as such it represents an ideal vacation destination with an emphasis on virtually any topic. Here you can acquire experience and impressions which, in terms of their content, can be classified as a more specific form of tourism.

Ventula Travel DMC enjoys having excellent cooperation with the local community and institutions; therefore, enabling us to produce some truly unique experiences. We are quite passionate about the local community and the environment. By involving them in our programmes, we always try to trigger positive reactions and to create circles of sustainability around them.

A relatively new term in tourism industry, experiential travel is really made for non-conformists who would like to have even more than an immersive experience of the destination they visit. Going completely off the well-beaten path is an item ranking high on our clients’ wish list. Thus, although most of our programmes include some elements of this type of tourism, we have created a selection of true experiential tours.
