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
Please be aware that the Croatian coast is very hilly and mountainous, which means lots & lots of steps are an inherent feature of the landscape. You will have to be able to easily lift your luggage and carry it up and down stairs and inclines. Also, stone streets become very slippery when wet. Some people may find Croatia's topography very demanding.
Summer temperatures can be extreme 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. Additionally, please be aware that July, August and the first half of September is high season along the Croatian coast, which means that the local infrastructure is under a lot of pressure with a lot of people in the towns we visit. 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.

ULTRA FESTIVAL IN SPLIT
Please note that the departure on 6 July 2019 will coincide with the annual Ultra Music Festival taking place from 12-14 July 2019 in Split. The city and the nearby islands will be very busy during this time, so if you prefer a less busy time to visit Croatia please choose any of the other departure dates. But if you are into electronic music this departure may just be what you are looking for. You can find more information here: https://ultraeurope.com/

Well organized trip with a good tour guide. Trip has a bit of free time, so do your research on what activities to do during free days (e.g. Kayaking, Sailing, etc.). Croatia is a tourism hot spot these days, and I don't think it would be difficult to get around without a tour group/guide, but of course it's always nice to have some fellow travelers to share the experience with. In my opinion, Dubrovnik and Split were excellent, and Hvar is worth visiting (especially in peak season it's supposedly a major party/holiday destination). Korcula I personally felt was skip-able, or at least didn't need the extra free day as part of the tour. You may take that into consideration depending on the pace of travel you're looking for, and/or make sure to line up some activities for the free days. Overall I would recommend Intrepid and this tour.
