Summer in Croatia – Exclusive Small Group Tour

per person

8 Day Croatia Discovery Tour:  July 3 – 10, 2021

Visiting: SPLIT – BRAC – HVAR – MLJET – DUBROVNIK

Guaranteed Departure dates are subject to availability.


Seeing Croatia for the first time is a life-changing experience. To visit time and again is to re-affirm life. Blessed with magnificent scenery and incredible history and enriched with folk traditions and delicious regional foods and wines, here is a region so divine that it has been named one of the best travel destinations in the world. Mediterranean, European, and Balkan influences have formed an ancient and distinctive culture throughout its pastoral countryside to its shimmering coastlines. Powerful mountain ranges have carved legacies in their midst while fairy tale castles and walled seaside villages stand as a testimony to its tumultuous past. Once the site of one of the bloodiest crossroads between Europe and Asia, it gained international recognition and independence in 1992, and today is a gorgeous and peaceful land that beckons passionate travelers from all over the globe. From its lush national parks teeming with flora and fauna and stunning waterfalls to its glistening chain of lavender and citrus scented islands in the sun-drenched Adriatic Sea, this is truly one of the most beautiful spots on Earth. A journey to Croatia is a lovely and indelible memory that lives with you forever.

Day 1 - Split
This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Split-Riva-night-Fotolia_99042768_M-1-e1549992511680.jpg Itinerary:
  • Arrival to Split  and meeting with your driver for a private transfer from Split Airport to your hotel
  • What to do in Split - Barhop around the Palace The Diocletian’s Palace is the perfect backdrop for Croatia’s best bar crawl, a night of revelry in the secret alleyways and hidden corners of this atmospheric ruin overlooking the seafront. Certain bars stand out amid the blur – though whether you’ll be able to find them the next night is another matter. In fact, retracting your footsteps, or trying to, is half the fun. If you just want to sit down for ten minutes and observe, then the little hub on Majstora Jurja should do nicely. Gawp at an Adriatic sunset Split’s focal embankment, officially titled Obala Hrvatskog Narodnog Preporoda, the Riva is where the city meets over coffee. As the sun moves across the sky, and thoughts turn to the night ahead, customers on the dozen or so café terraces tend to start ordering stiff drinks rather than coffee. Order up a cold beer, maybe a signature doorstep sandwich of prosciutto and cheese, and take in the last of the day’s rays.
  • Time at leisure and  an overnight in Split
Service
  • Private transfer from Split Airport to Split in a modern, air-conditioned vehicle

Day 3 - Split - Brač - Split
This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Brac-Bol-Golden-Horn-Adventures-Croatia.jpg Itinerary:
  • Breakfast at the hotel
  • Meeting with your skipper at the Split Port pier for a private full-day speed boat excursion to Bol & Golden Horn
  • Glide across the waves as you reach your final destination in no time all the while admiring the beautiful panorama of Dalmatian islands.
  • Croatian holidays must include at least one beach trip – and of all of the things to do on Brač – the prettiest beach in Croatia is Zlatni Rat Beach in Bol town.  Long, golden, and covered in pebbles, this beach protrudes over 500 meters out into the Adriatic Sea in a v-shape, surrounded by deep blue and turquoise water. The shape of the beach changes with the wind and water current, which makes it one of the unique in Croatia.
  • Stroll along the Bol Promenade, which takes you along the seashore from the town of Bol all the way to Zlatni Rat Beach. The route is lined with Brač stone and shaded with large overhanging pine trees. I’d suggest wandering along with ice-cream in hand on your first day to pick out your favorite beach spots.
  • A day at the beach can make you very thirsty, so we suggest a visit to a winery, situated on the main promenade. The Stina Wine Project began in 2009 when local winery Jako Vino leased a cellar from the Agricultural Cooperative of Bol and began purchasing grapes from the local vineyards. The newly formed winery is a blend of new and old traditions that serve up some of Croatia’s finest wine.
  • Return to Split for an overnight
