April 9, 2019 – Putting Croatian adventure tourism on the map, with the biggest welcome in the world. Day 14 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 14 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 14 moved by kayak, bike, SUP, and foot from Silba to Prpa.
46 kilometres for the day: 22 km by kayak from Silba to Pag, followed by an 8 km bicycle ride on Pag island, 4 km of SUP (standup paddle boarding) from Pag to Karlobag, and 12 km on foot from Karlobag to Prpa to begin forming the ‘L’ in ‘Welcome’.
Day 14 began with Daniel Lacko rowing from Silba to Pag, passing Olib in the background.
They were greeted on the island of Pag with an old stone house in Proboj.
The colors of Proboj on the island of Pag.
And, of course, lambs.
The rocky Proboj should make parking the kayak easy?

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