April 26, 2019 – Putting Croatian adventure tourism on the map, with the biggest welcome in the world. Day 34 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 34 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 34 moved from Sinj to the Dinara mountain.

59 kilometres for the day: 15 km bike ride from Sinj to Peručko Lake, followed by a 17 km kayak ride at Peručko Lake, 21 km bike ride from Peručko Lake to Glavaš, and 6 km on foot from Glavaš to Dinara to begin forming the ‘O’ in ‘Welcome’.


Day 34 began with Lacko pedaling from Sinj towards Peručko lake.


At Peručko lake, Lacko swapped his bike for a bright yellow kayak.

They came across rams. 


And a shepherdess named Boja.


They made it to the Cetina. 


And the Church of St. Spas.

To the top of Dinara!


Though the bura began to blow. 


And coordinator Čedo waited for the crew near the shelter. 

A key part of the project was promoting tourism, and the official website has details of the key places visited during the day. Lacko and his crew, however, did not pass any significant landmarks on Day 34. 

You can see the entire project on the Welcome website, as well as much more of Luka Tambaca’s stunning photography on the Welcome Facebook page

Tune in tomorrow for Day 35, as Lacko moves from Dinara to the Roški waterfall.
