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.

Croatia is an amazing country and made for an exceptional birthday vacation! Split had my heart and I am longing to return. Please note that the first part of the trip is very expensive. I went to the ATM a lot more during the first half, then the second half.

Make sure you have a key each if sharing accommodation with someone you have not met before as I found on the Croatia part of my trip my room mate was not over friendly and we came and went at different times.
