Detailed Description

Islands are not necessarily the first things that travelers think of when they think of Croatia. While the mainland of this lovely nation does indeed boast a bounty of fine cuisine, it is the Croatian islands that have the monopoly on the freshest, mouthwatering food.

Nestled amid the azure waters of the Adriatic Sea, Croatia’s captivating islands are hidden gems that offer only awe-inspiring aesthetic beauty and a plethora of island adventures with a unique and appetizing appeal. This luxuriously customized 7-day excursion has been carefully curated for you and features only the most elite experiences, the most spectacular scenery, and the most glamorous and mouthwatering cuisine that the Croatia Islands have to offer.

Your first exciting destination will be the seaside city of Dubrovnik, where you will spend your first evening exploring the Old City and indulging in a jaunt to the lovely Lokrum Island. Your first full day will find you being whisked away to the alluring Elaphiti Islands, which is where you can explore a trio of islands that each offer their own unique excitement and charm. You will then venture to Korcula Island, which will act as your base for the rest of the week as you journey elsewhere for fabulous day trips. Before your day trips, you will experience the best that Korcula Island has to offer on a day that will be filled with private yoga, touring a bee farm, and sampling local honey.

A delightful excursion to the island of Solta awaits you, and during this experience, you will embark on a private olive oil tour, visit actual live groves, and learn from a master grower about what goes into a bottle of Croatian Island olive oil. Heavenly Hvar Island will be next on your agenda, and it is here that you will partake in a palate-pleasing wine tour while also cruising through the most idyllic areas of the island, including Hvar town.

A visit to Vis Island and the world-famous Blue Cave Grotto will fill your final day in the islands, and it will be followed by a private cooking class that will be taught by a master chef. On your final morning, you will sail back to Dubrovnik, where after enjoying a lovely brunch, your private driver will lead you to the airport for your flight home.

Throughout this memorable getaway, you will enjoy staying at the best luxury accommodations in addition to having the luxury of private transportation to and from every destination. Everything about this tour is completely customizable, even once you have reached your destination.
