Detailed Description

Croatia has recently become somewhat of Europe’s darling when it comes to the hottest emerging vacation destinations. This should come as no surprise because the country has a wealth of offerings to please any vacationer’s specific tastes. Speaking of tastes, that is exactly what this custom-tailored, one-week adventure celebrates: Croatia’s culinary treasures. From local wines and artisan cheeses to mouthwatering truffles and more, embarking on this exciting culinary excursion is sure to satisfy even the pickiest of eaters.

Your gourmet getaway will begin in the beautiful, seaside enclave of Dubrovnik, where you will be provided with your first glimpse of Croatia’s stunning coast and the sparkling Adriatic Sea on an evening sunset dinner sail. You will then be whisked away on a full day’s wine tour of the picturesque Peljesac Peninsula.

Then, after spending the next day wandering around Dubrovnik’s Old City that is complete with its entirely-walled, pedestrian-only streets and iconic landmarks, you will enjoy island-hopping to nearby Lokrum Island. Upon touching foot on the shores of this truly special spot, you will admire the local sights and even indulge in a delicious and locally made dessert to end your day on a sweet note. The following morning, you will partake in an excursion to Konavle Valley, where you will be wined, dined, and regaled with fascinating facts, stories, and a plethora of myths that surround some of the region’s most notable delicacies.

The second half of your journey will find you attempting to taste your way through the culinary capital of Croatia in addition to its capital city of Zagreb. Upon your arrival, you will be able to explore the city’s iconic Upper Town along with Zagreb’s most famous landmark locales, including Dolac Market, Zagreb Cathedral, St. Mark’s Church, and more. You will end your evening with a private cooking class, which will include a master chef who will walk you step-by-step in whipping up a mouthwatering and authentic Croatian meal.

Your final day will be spent feasting on local wines and artisan cheeses while learning about the inner-workings of each, including a firsthand glimpse at just what goes into bringing these delicious delicacies from farm to table. As evening approaches, possibly the most thrilling excursion of your entire week awaits you as you embark on an exciting truffle hunt, which will be complete with headlamps, a professional guide, and sleuth-nosed canines.

After literally having your fill of Croatia’s absolute best culinary offerings, you will be entirely satisfied. In fact, you will most certainly be planning your return before even leaving Croatian soil and stepping foot on your return flight. With luxury accommodations provided in advance for each night of your stay in addition to private transfers already being arranged to bring you to and from every delicious destination, the only thing that you will need to bring to the table is your appetite and a hearty sense of adventure.
