Following the success of our 2018 tour to Sicily and the Aeolian Archipelago, our 2019 trek will be another Island-hopping adventure… this time around the stunning Dalmatian Coastline of Croatia’s National parkland. Our 2019 Trek to Croatia will take place from 12th October to 19th October inclusive.
So get set to see the beautiful Krka National Park, enjoy trekking along the most picturesque rivers, take a memorable boat ride through a canyon passing cascading falls and experience an exciting mixture of modern buildings, UNESCO palaces, old city walls and beautiful promenades, all set against a spectacular mountainous backdrop.
This is one trip you really don’t want to miss!

This promises to be a truly spectacular trip. The ask is similar to previous years: we need you to raise a minimum of €3,300 in return for which we can promise you a once-in-a-lifetime experience, with transfers, accommodation, food, guides included so all you need to do is bring your walking boots and a positive attitude to have some great fun while raising vital funds for the front line services of Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services.
To help you along the way, once again this year we will be offering you a €200 discount from your total for every additional friend you bring along. Don’t forget – the Fundraising Team here in the Hospice will be on-hand to support your efforts, whether that be through social media, letters of verification, posters and flyers, collection buckets or sponsorship cards. We’re also full of ideas on how you can raise funds. Just a few examples of the best fundraising activities from last year were as follows:
- Bag packing
- Church gate collections
- Pub quizzes
- Sponsored walks
- Car boot sales
But if you’re new to fundraising, don’t worry, we’re here to help, and we’d be happy to help you plan your activities and make sure you have everything you need.
We do hope you’ll join us this year for what promises to be an amazing trek.
