Detailed Description

Croatia is long-famed for the dazzling city of Dubrovnik, its impeccably preserved Old City, the metropolitan capital of Zagreb, but this enigmatic nation is far more diverse than most travelers realize. While the aforementioned destinations are lovely, this Eastern European gem also has a plethora of islands that are stunningly beautiful.

Imagine escaping your everyday and embarking on a week-long vacation that is filled with nothing but peaceful relaxation, limitless pampering, and natural wonders that only exotic islands can offer. That is exactly what this luxurious, 7-day adventure has in store for you.

Upon your arrival in Dubrovnik, your Croatian island excursion will officially begin, and after settling into your luxurious accommodation, you will waste no time in embarking on an in-depth tour of the Old City. Then, after exploring the impeccably preserved fortress and UNESCO World Heritage Site, you will island-hop to Lokrum Island to enjoy an evening stroll that will be followed by a delicious dessert and nightcap. The Elaphiti Islands are on the agenda for your first full day in Croatia, and this is where you will be whisked away on a private tour of three thrilling locales on a state-of-the-art liner with your own private guide, captain, and cabin crew.

Day three will find you making your way to the magical island of Korcula, where you will spend a beautiful Croatian day amid sunshine, sparkling sandy beaches,  warm waters, and unmatched beauty. You will check-in to your new accommodation because this lovely enclave will act as the base for the remainder of your island escape. Following day three will be a magical day of experiencing the great outdoors in the pristine nature preserve of Mljet Island.

A whirlwind day of exploration awaits you on day five as you visit five amazing islands. Your full-day adventure includes a stop at Hvar and its charming Hvar town in addition to the world-famous Blue Cave Grotto and Green Cave. Perhaps, the most active excursion has been saved for your final full day in the islands because you will embark on a thrilling journey of discovery to the outdoor paradise of Lastovo Island, which is an idyllic haven that has recently been declared an official nature preserve.

After your wondrous week in Croatia’s islands, you will feel relaxed, rejuvenated, and absolutely reluctant to leave. Your departure on your last morning will at least be made more palatable with a delicious goodbye brunch that awaits you on your return sail to Dubrovnik. Afterward, you will be transferred to the airport for your flight home.

Throughout your entire island escape, you will spend each night in luxurious accommodations, and all of your necessary transportation needs will have also been pre-arranged and private. Your Croatian adventure is extremely flexible and can be customized throughout your time in the Islands to accommodate your moods and desires. Thus, all that you have to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy the journey.
