Croatia boasts an array of picturesque camping sites that blend seamlessly with nature. Choosing eco-friendly camping sites not only enhances your connection with the environment but also supports responsible tourism. Look for campsites that prioritise waste reduction, energy efficiency and water conservation. This ensures a minimal ecological footprint while providing a serene escape into nature. For example, check out Istra Premium Camping Resort, Krk Premium Camping Resort or Padova Premium Camping Resort on the island of Rab.

Similarly, there’s the Valamar Amicor Green Resort on the island of Hvar – Croatia’s first eco-friendly resort near the enchanting ancient town of Stari Grad. It’s a family resort built on sustainable development principles, with accommodation in eco villas and family suites and electric vehicle charging station. The resort is designed with local and recycled materials, with 100% recyclable construction. Also, 100% electricity comes from solar energy on site. Built with respect for nature, the resort weaves green ethos throughout – from locally sourced foods and green energy to nature-oriented family activities, including Maro Eco Playroom, Aquamar premium water park, outdoor playground with a zipline and an organic garden for mini-botanists.

In addition, explore tailor-made biking and hiking tours that allow you to explore Croatia’s breath-taking landscapes sustainably. Choose two wheels or your own two feet to discover hidden gems, picturesque villages and untouched nature. Opting for eco-friendly transportation options not only minimises your carbon footprint but also provides a more immersive experience of the local culture and scenery.

Local Gastronomy: A Feast for the Senses

Dive into Croatia’s culinary delights by exploring the local gastronomic scene. Embrace sustainability by supporting small, local suppliers who prioritise quality over mass production. Seek out restaurants and markets that showcase the region’s authentic flavours, relying on seasonal and locally sourced ingredients. For example, 80% of food and beverages in Valamar properties is locally produced.

In addition, there is Valfresco – a store in Istra Premium Camping Resort and Lanterna Premium Camping Resort with local and fresh family-farm products and ready-made meals, camping equipment and a wide range of household products. When buying at Valfresco Direkt you directly support the local community and gain access to high-quality products. It offers simple ordering and free mobile home delivery the next day!

It’s in Valamar’s Nature

To elevate your eco-friendly holiday, consider staying at various Valamar accommodations. To start with, for all guests with electric cars, there are charging stations for electric vehicles available.

When it additionally comes to electricity and energy-efficient and sustainable practices, there are LED lighting and smart building systems, to reduce energy consumption across properties. In short, when you turn on the switch to illuminate your hotel room, you’re using electricity from renewable energy sources.

When considering waste reduction, worry not. There are various recycling programs, and single-use plastics is highly reduced, while also striving for zero food waste. As you stroll through the accommodation grounds, you’ll find solace under the shade of one of the 80,000 trees the company nurtures. For years now, Valamar has been taking part in many green initiatives of planting trees. When visiting your favourite destination, you can donate to plant new trees, and for each donated tree, Valamar will plant another one. The smallest members of our ecosystem are also thought of through cute little wooden bird houses and hotels for insects!
