Tour details
  • Discover old town of Split where a walk through UNESCO's Diocletian palace takes you back to the Roman times.

  • Explore the sunny island of Hvar. This pearl of Dalmatia boasts superb beaches, centuries old villages and wild topography perfect for hiking. Add boutique winemakers, amazing olive oil, crystal-clear waters of the Adriatic, friendly locals and you get the perfect combination of the Mediterranean as it once was...

  • Paddle the archipelago of Pakleni islands with our superb PRIJON sit-in sea kayaks. Explore the numerous coves with secluded white-pebble beaches and the fragrant scent of the Aleppo pines. 

  • From Hvar we take you on a daily cruise to the island of Brac. Hike to the remote Blaca Hermitage built on a craggy cliff and once inhabited by secret order of monks. Further on we admire a breathtaking 360° view of Dalmatia from the top of Mt. Vidova (2552 ft), the highest mountain on the islands. We don't forget to thy Brac's local delicacy, the slowly baked veal and lamb 'under the bell' before ending Brac journey on the Golden Cape, probably the most famous beach in Croatia

  • Hike the rugged terrain of Hvar island's interior where you find yourself indulged in the scents of lavender and rosemary while walking through old villages and canyons. Meet the locals, try the local spirits and taste the local fishermen's delicacies. 

  • Spoil yourself with a SPA treatment and fabulous breakfast at a boutique hotel Adriana situated in the town of Hvar. Explore the town's great restaurant scene and get to meet our lovely friend Carmen, an eloquent historian, passionate organic farmer and island's only certified aroma therapist

  • From islands to the mainland. We tour Croatian coastline heading South through the fertile Neretva plain, dubbed the Croatian California. We taste the local produce including the Tangerine honey and an exquisite array of local brandies. Further on a visit to Peljesac peninsula bring us to Ston, where a second largest fortified stone wall stands. A remnant of once glorious Dubrovnik republic, Ston today is a place where best oysters in Croatia can be found and tasted.  We enjoy a gourmet sea-food lunch.

  • The UNESCO's legendary Dubrovnik is the icing on the cake at the end of the tour. This jewel of the Adriatic was once a great rival to the Venetian republic and it's grand architecture was praised in the writings of great Marco Polo.
     

  • Activity packed Croatian holiday ends with a sea-kayaking trip to the small Lokrum island.

We loved activities and the beautiful scenery. For a family, small hotels or b&b were a very nice option.
