Croatia Travel Ideas and Favorite Croatia Tours

Our Croatia Travel Ideas will help you with your planning for your trip to Croatia, Slovenia, Montenegro, Bosnia-Herzegovina, or any of its surrounding countries. This is all we focus on, and we’ve become entrenched in the area with a top-notch ground team, drivers, excursions, 24 hour concierge services, and hands-on customer support while our clients are in-country.

Croatia is still a hidden travel gem, but it has been on the rise in popularity as an emerging must-see tourist destination. For those in the know, Croatia has everything to fulfill your travel dreams – culture, history, world-class food, wine tasting and award-winning Croatian wine, safe, friendly, small towns, islands, coast/beach, and sea, as well as the charm of the rural countryside. Aside from the welcoming culture, Croatia has over 1000 islands and islets, 8 national parks worthy of a lengthy visit, 11 nature parks for the flora/fauna lovers and bird watchers, over 3700 miles of pristine (albeit a little bit rocky) coastline, as well as the 10 revered and well-known cultural and natural UNESCO World Heritage sites.

With diverse influences ranging from their original Kroat nationality, Venetian, Turkish, and Austrian cultures have impacted the people of this area throughout history. The culture, food, and architecture illustrate these influences perfectly. Originally the playground of kings and queens, Croatia has inevitably been a very desired location throughout history both for its beauty, natural resources, but also for its strategic land/port locations during their conquerer’s wars over the centuries. Because of the nature of their stone masonry buildings during those times, these historical sites still stand and are a testament to the resiliency of its people.

Wether you visit Northern Istria, Losinj or Mali Losinj, the Pakleni Islands, or the beautiful beaches of central Dalmatia, you’ll find kind and friendly people to greet you with a smile, as well as Croatia’s fabulous wines, the nightlife on Hvar, or a unique getaway with a private charter on the Adriatic. Croatia has a lot to offer you on your adventure, all you have to do is dream it up and we can help you plan it.

Why travel to Croatia?

It’s difficult to put into words why we love Croatia and why we want everyone to travel to Croatia and discover the innate beauty of its locations, destinations, people, gastronomy, heritage, and culture either on a Private Croatia Tour or a Guaranteed Departure Croatia Tour. Visually stunning, Croatia in photos can help convey what we know to be true:

During these trying times, we’ve also offered our Book With Confidence Guarantee to help ease the worry of booking now, even though we’re still not out of the danger zone of worrying yet.
