Discover hotspots and lesser-known treasures on Croatia’s Dalmatian coast
Eat, walk, swim and wander to your heart’s content on a five-day exploration of Croatia’s Central Dalmatia region. This slice of the country delivers in both natural wonders and cultural treasures while offering up something to entice all those who set foot on its shimmering shores. Walk in the shoes of a local in the city of Sibenik, snorkel past ancient ruins in Murter, have lunch with new friends on the spectacular Kornati Islands, venture into the wonderland of Krka National Park and discover the charming streets of Trogir. History? Incredible. Food? Unforgettable. Scenery? Couldn’t be better. This is a place that ticks all the boxes.
We’ve partnered with non-profit organisation MEET to bring you an ecotourism experience on the little known Kornati Islands where you’ll hike through stunning scenery and enjoy lunch with a welcoming local family.
Discover an ancient Roman city on the island of Murter, then go beneath the surface in snorkelling gear to explore an underwater wonderland of ancient artefacts hidden by rising sea levels.
See a different side of Sibenik as you explore the city with a local guide who will introduce you to local artists and artisans before taking you to a hidden-away tavern for a traditional snack.
Traverse the fairy tale landscapes of Krka National Park, passing beautiful woodlands and roman ruins as tiered waterfalls tumble overhead.
Walk the charming streets of Trogir, with a local guide on hand to point out fascinating examples of Romanesque, Renaissance and baroque architecture.
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 gender. 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.
If you have more time to explore the region you can start your trip earlier in Dubrovnik to explore more of the Dalmatian Coast. Check out our trip 'Explore Croatia' (trip code ZMSF). Most departure dates are designed to create this perfect combination trip.
If you have more time to explore the region you can extend your trip to explore more of Dalmatia with our longer 'Highlights of Dalmatia' trip (trip code ZLSOC), starting in Dubrovnik. Most departure dates are designed to create this perfect combination trip.
