The best campervans and motorhomes for hire in Split
Split offers endless opportunities for outdoor adventure. And what better way to explore the outdoors than with your campervan or motorhome hire?
From camping on secluded beaches to hiking through lush national parks, a campervan or motorhome gives you the freedom to discover all that Split has to offer at your own pace.
Split is conveniently located in central Dalmatia. The city gives you easy campervan access to three national parks: Krka, Kornati, and Plitvice Lakes. The latter is perhaps the most well-known, with its breathtaking series of 16 terraced lakes and numerous waterfalls. Krka also offers stunning waterfalls, while Kornati Park boasts uninhabited islands. The crystal-clear waters are perfect for diving or snorkelling.
As you move your campervan Southeast from Split, the rugged coastline will take you to Biokovo Nature Park. A mountainous area with thrilling activities like a skywalk 1,228 metres high, you'll be able to see the entire region from above. Alternatively, take your campervan hire Northwest, where you'll find the Vrana Lake Nature Park. This bird-lovers paradise is home to over 200 species.
While Split's national parks offer amazing inland experiences, remember to explore the coastline. The Adriatic Sea is a breathtaking blue, and there are numerous beaches to choose from for swimming or sunbathing. Immerse yourself in nature with a kayak or SUP board hire and explore the nearby coves.
Martinica Beach, Beach Krvavica, Makarska Beach, and Beach Bilo offer a similar sandy beach experience. Simply choose the one closest to your campervan or motorhome hire location.
As for lakes, Blue Lake and Red Lake are must-sees. The former, also known as Modro Jezero, is a stunning turquoise colour with a hiking trail around the perimeter. Red Lake, or Crveno Jezero, is known for the caves located on its edge and the small island in the middle. Both lakes are sinkholes, meaning they have no visible inflow or outflow of water and are fed by rain.
If you're looking for a more adventurous river experience, add the Cetina River to your campervan hire trip. A whitewater rafting trip on this river will take you through stunning canyons and lush vegetation. There are even ancient fortresses and historical sites along the shores. The source of the river has been dubbed "the Eye of the Earth" because its impressive depth and shape resemble an eye.
After a day filled with outdoor campervan adventure, what better way to end the day than camping under the stars ? While there are numerous motorhome campgrounds in Split and its surrounding areas, Camping Stobreč Split, Camping Straško, and Camping Rožac are all popular options. Located on the coast or near lakes and rivers, these campgrounds offer amenities like showers, electricity, and even a restaurant.
Top-rated camps like Stobreč have Wi-Fi, making it easy to stay connected while on the road. You'll need to book your campervan or motorhome hire in advance and reserve a spot at your chosen campground. And don't forget to pack your camping essentials like food and blankets.
If you find yourself off the beaten path, look for "Auto-Kamp" signs. These indicate an area where you can legally park and camp in your campervan or motorhome for the night. Note that boondocking, or camping without hookups, is not permitted in Croatia.
