FACTS

Name

The name “Kayak” means “hunter’s boat” as kayaks were originally invented by the Inuit, Yup’Ik, and the Aleut for hunting. They were made of seal or other animal skin stretched over wood or whale bone. Kayaks are very quiet which made them ideal for sneaking up on prey.


Over 50,000km in a kayak

Arguably one of the greatest kayak expeditions you have never heard of started back in 1932 when Oskar Speck decided to take the bus to the Danube River in Ulm, Germany and start paddling towards Cyprus. Over the next 7 years he continued working East paddling over 50,000 kilometers and eventually making his way to Australia.


The largest group of kayaks

The official world record was broken on September 24, 2011 when 1,902 boats formed the world's largest raft of canoes/kayaks in Inlet, NY.

History of Bungee

The legend says that bungee jumping first appeared on the Pentecost Island in the South Pacific. During the Second World War the westerners came to this island for the first time and discovered this people and their custom of bungee jumping. According to this legend, one of the natives, Tamalie, was abusing his wife, so she decided to run away. She climbed a tall tree to hide, but he found her and climbed after her. While he was climbing, she tied up lianas around her ankles and in the moment Tamalie tried to catch her, she jumped from the tree. Tamalie jumped after her, hit the ground and died.<br><br>

From that day, men in the village started practicing jumping with lianas so women couldn't outwit men ever again. So they built 28-meter high tower for jumping. Before jump, every man has ritual bath and then climbs a tower. Then his wife is brought to tower where she has to listen husband's complaints in front of whole village. After speech, man has to jump, head down, to proof his manhood. The tradition has retained until today and has become a touristic attraction. The western world hasn't discovered this custom until 1955. from the article of Irving i Electa Johnson in National Geographic magazine.

DETAILS

Sakarun – One of the most beautiful beaches in the Adriatic

The intensity of the colours: the dark green pinewoods, the shimmering white pebbles, and the sea that changes hue during the day, depending on the position of the sun.

Seen from the hillside above the bay, the sea is an intense turquoise-blue, more akin to the Caribbean than the Adriatic. The bay faces south, onto the open sea, and is rimmed by an 800-metre arch of smooth white stone, which in turn is backed by pinewoods. This is Sakarun (aka Saharun) beach, one of Croatia’s loveliest but least-known spots. You’ll find it at the north end of Dugi Otok island, in North Dalmatia, which remains a pleasantly low-profile destination, despite Croatia’s current popularity.
