Detailed Description

An archipelago awaits as you hop through the Adriatic. The route from Split to Dubrovnik is an iconic route, connecting islands that are indelibly Croatian yet wonderfully diverse. Contrasting experiences are found each day as you uncover history, nature and culture, as well as having many a lazy hours spent on the beach or settled in on a promenade. The coastline symbolizes Croatia’s allure, and you will soon see why the country is so revered. Islands are part of the appeal, as are the cities of Split and Dubrovnik along with the beautifully rural regions found along the way. There are vineyards, oyster farms, olive groves, caves, konoba restaurants, art, churches and the legend of Marco Polo, and that is just the beginning.

Start off with several nights in Split, a city personified by its coastal charm. For the first days, you will soak up local Dalmatian styles and find relaxation along the promenade. Move next to Krka National Park and the seductive medieval town of Trogir before spending a day on the unusual island of Brac. Fast catamarans connect the islands, and you can cruise from Split to Hvar, where Stari Grad provides one of Europe’s quaintest overnight stays. With a couple of days on Hvar, you will be seduced by the villages and the vineyards as you spend a day hopping to Bisevo, Ravnik, and the Pakleni Islands.

Next, it will be Korcula, an island of lush green landscapes and old-world towns. As you did on Hvar, you will spend the first day exploring the island and the next day hopping to nearby islands. Mljet is an island national park, an oasis away from the world that seems to epitomize the Croatian island hopping experience. But the same could be said of the Elafiti islands as all these Adriatic destinations contain a certain iconicity. Stop for seafood and wine in Ston en route to Dubrovnik with your hotel base within the Old Town for your final few nights. Experience the city, walk the walls, discover village life in Konavle, and spend a day cruising to the Elafiti islands.
