61st Europa Rally

2 persons for 185 EUR

It is our pleasure to invite you to the 61st EUROPA RALLY organized by the Europa Rally Committee. This year the rally will take place on an island - Lošinj Island, Camp Čikat, Mali Lošinj, from 16th to 20th of May 2024.


Dear camping friends from all over Europe, welcome to the 61st Europe Rally. In 2024, Croatia will again be the country and destination of campers from all over Europe. Croatia again? Yes, on the one hand, it is becoming increasingly difficult for the Europa Rally Committee to find clubs and campsites willing and able to organise such a big event as the Europa Rally. Covid 19 also plays a role in this. That has broken many contacts. On the other hand, because Croatia has a lot to offer and fortunately there are also enthusiastic people, who want to take on the organisation. The UKH is now preparing our Europe Rally at campsite Čikat on the island of Lošinj. In 2019, we were also guests here. The experiences then with, among other things, a biggest opening at the port are reason for UKH and the Committee to choose this campsite again. A beautiful area on a beautiful island, where you might not otherwise go.

I welcome you all on behalf of the Europe Rally Committee. Take your time to discover the most beautiful spots of Lošinj and Cres. By bike or on foot. But above all, spend your time in the company of many camping friends, known and (maybe still) unknown. UKH and Cikat will be happy to greet you as guests.

I wish you all a pleasant stay at Lošinj, Croatia.

Kees Splint, President Europa Rally

Thanks to this, the Ministry of Health of the Austro-Hungarian Empire issued a decree back in the 19th century to designate Lošinj a climatic health resort. It remains the perfect place to achieve balance between the soul and the body because in addition to the health services offered on Lošinj, you can also enjoy outdoor activities and excellent Mediterranean cuisine, as well as a rich tourist and cultural offer.

You will see that this aromatherapeutic and eco-conscious, yet modern vitality and health destination has many hidden beauties and an interesting offer.

We highly recommend you visit the best-known resident of Lošinj, an antique bronze statue of Apoxyomenos, meet the bottlenose dolphins and experience one of the most beautiful sunsets at one of the viewpoints on the island.

We hope you experience Lošinj as it truly is – fascinating and beautiful!
