Explore Croatia following the Dalmatian coast from Dubrovnik to Split.
Visit Croatia. Travel from Dubrovnik to Split along the Dalmatian coast. Idyllic beaches, ancient ruins and some serious old-world charm are just some of the highlights of this island-hopping adventure along the Dalmatian coast. Visit a local farm for fresh produce, swim in turquoise waters and wander cobbled streets to uncover hidden treasures. Discover the true heart and soul of Croatia and meet friendly locals along the way.
Dubrovnik's charms reach far beyond the famed beautiful city walls. Explore the undisputed jewel of the Dalmatian Coast, and maybe cruise to Lokrum Island where a botanical garden, Benedictine monastery, and excellent swimming spots await
Korcula Island is a quiet escape full of vineyards, olive groves and tranquil coves – indulge in local island food and drink specialties during a feast in a sleepy village
Hvar Island seems to have it all: Renaissance architecture, beautiful beaches, lush green landscapes and excellent Dalmatian cuisine
Split is a haven of relaxation and culture. Unwind with a walk along the waterfront promenade and explore the impressive ruins of Diocletian's Palace
As there are potholes and cobblestones in many European cities, it's recommended that you leave any wheelie bags/cases at home and bring a backpack instead. The Croatian coast is also very hilly and mountainous, so many steps are a feature of the landscape. You will have to be able to easily lift your luggage and carry it up and down stairs and inclines, so packing light is recommended. Also, stone streets become very slippery when wet. Some people may find Croatia's topography very demanding.
Summer temperatures can be very high in many of the regions visited (over 40°C), which can be uncomfortable. It’s important to use sun protection, wear layers to combat the heat and drink plenty of water. Please carefully consider the time of the year you wish to travel and your suitability to that season.
As accommodation on this trip is twin share, single travellers will share a room with another traveller of the same sex. This trip is a great opportunity to get to know other like-minded people, so embrace it while you can. However, if you’d prefer not to share, a single room supplement is available at an additional charge. Please ask your travel consultant for more details. Also, hotels in Europe often don't have double beds, but rather two single beds that can be pushed together.
Please note that on the islands of Korcula and Hvar we are staying in private apartments that locals rent out during the summer months. These are located in various buildings spread across town, but all are within 15- minutes walk of the main square. They differ in layout and facilities, can vary in size and most don't have air-conditioning. This is the most effective way of staying in the centre of town.

If possible travel in Croatia during shoulder seasons as Dubrovnik, especially, is extremely busy. A gorgeous city, but hordes of tourists can dampen enthusiasm to explore. When offered the opportunity to go boating, swimming and snorkelling when visiting various smaller islands, do it! The water was clear and warm with interesting fish life. A magical experience.

This tour was an incredible way to see a beautiful country. Every place is picturesque and postcard perfect. You get to experience it by land, by sea, by tasting the delicious cuisine, by hiking and snorkeling, by catching beautiful sunsets. We stayed among the locals, within the walls of an ancient Roman palace, in the bustle of the city, and I appreciated the variety. Unlike my other intrepid tours, there were more free days, that allow you to do what strikes your fancy, to go at your own pace - whether that's lounging at a bar, hiking up a steep mountain to see a fortress above Dubrovnik, sunbathing on a boat or beach, or checking out the Roman ruins. Our team leader, Dinko, was outstanding. He took care of us and shared his passion for his country. It was truly an unforgettable trip.
