Starting in Telašcica Bay, a nature park with dramatic cliffs that plunge down into the sea, you will venture into the 140 islands of the Kornati Archipelago that are spread before you. Both a National Park and a proposed UNESCO World Heritage site, the Kornati is the densest archipelago in the Mediterranean. Setting course to the south along the west edge of the island group, you’ll island hop with breaks to stop and swim until reaching a guesthouse on the remote island of Levernaka Otok, which will be your base for the next several days. Protected channels and warm, crystal clear water in an amazing range of turquoise hues make kayaking the Kornati a singular experience. Around every point there is a new vista with a distinctive play of light on stark landform reflected on water. Ashore, short hikes take you through ancient olive groves or to the ruins of a Roman fortress. The few residents of the archipelago still follow the rhythm of life at the water’s edge and you’ll join them for meals of incredibly fresh seafood prepared in traditional style. Days in the Kornati start with golden light on the islands and end with a glass of wine, simple food, and a blazing red sunset – pure pleasure.
