    Day 1 Arrival in Split

    Diocletian Palace

    Welcome to Split! As a second-biggest city in Croatia, Split is the main harbour in Dalmatia region and a starting point for many holidaymakers.

    The Diocletian’s Palace makes the core of the Old Town and a symbol of modern-day Split, incorporating an eclectic combination of Roman temples, Gothic palaces and modern Mediterranean-style stone houses.

    We will organise a private tour of Diocletian’s Palace and Old Town so you can learn about Split’s history in great detail.

    Don’t miss Riva, Split’s palm tree-lined promenade, panorama from Marjan hill or simply walking the cobbled streets of the Old Town, infused with history.

      Day 2 Split - Trogir and Klis Fortress (Optional)

      Trogir old town

      To start your day, visit Klis fortress, lodged in the mountain above Split. In the past, it served as a line of defence against Mongols and Ottoman empire.

      Later, continue towards Trogir. This Medieval island town is another UNESCO-listed site in Croatia. Walk the streets of Trogir admiring preserved Kamerlengo castle and tower and a series of dwellings and palaces from the Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque periods. Connected with Trogir via bridge is Čiovo island, and with a short walk or a taxi drive, you can spend part of your day enjoying beautiful beaches.

        Day 3 Split - Visit the beaches - Visit Krka National Park (Optional)

        Split view

        A day to completely relax and enjoy the beautiful Adriatic. You are spoiled for choice with five beaches available. Trstenik beach is pebbled with crystal clear waters for a refreshing paddle. Kastelet is a twenty minute walk from the city centre and is at the southern slopes of the Marjan Hill. At nearby the Kasjuni beach, if you look up from the water, you will see Marjan Hill in its full beauty. Walk along the beachside promenade and sip on a refreshing cocktail as you watch another glorious sunset.

        Alternatively, we will arrange a private tour to the majestic Krka Waterfalls National Park where you will explore the pathways and wooden bridges that wind through the natural wonderland. You will admire the Skradinski Buk waterfalls, and swim in Roški Slap.

          Day 4 Arrival in Hvar

          Hvar harbor

          After breakfast and check out, you will board a catamaran to the island of Hvar.

          Today you will head out to one of Croatia’s most famous and must-see locations – the wonderful town of Hvar. The town is set against a backdrop of stone houses and turquoise sea and exudes the Mediterranean charm of yesteryear.

          For the best view over the town climb up to 17th century Fortica Fortress or explore Hvar’s narrow streets filled with wonderfully quaint restaurants and shops selling artisanal wonders. Spend the evening relaxing with a drink taking in the sights, sounds and celebrities of Hvar’s nightlife, we recommend the Le Bonj bar.

            Day 5 Hvar - Experience wine-tasting (optional)

            Vineyards

            Whilst in Hvar, visit award-winning winery Tomić. Taste award-winning wines Plavac Mali, local favourite Bogdanuša or ‘prošek’ (sweet dessert wine) Hectorovich in fantastic stone cellars, not unlike those used by Romans.

            For a bit more active day out, go on a jeep safari tour, exploring Hvar’s countryside. Abandoned in the 50s, the nearby village Malo Grablje has a new-found purpose as an ethno-eco village, open to tourists and providing an insight into authentic island life. There is a restaurant serving traditionally-prepared food, using only locally-sourced ingredients, so you can enjoy a meal in a tranquil and beautiful setting.

              Day 6 Hvar - Blue Cave & Komiza, small group tour

              Blue Cave, Bisevo, Croatia

              Today we visit the magnificent Blue Cave (also known as the Blue Grotto) to discover its unique illumination attraction, a natural phenomenon that can only be accessed by speedboat. The sun’s rays create an atmospheric blue light as they filter through and catch the water.

              The nearby Green Cave, Monk Cave and Stiniva Cove offer wonderful swimming opportunities and a chance to relax in spectacular natural scenery. Enjoy a refreshing and rejuvenating swim in peaceful crystal-clear waters or jump off cliff sides and snorkel to your heart’s content. In the afternoon, we visit the little fishing town of Komiža and sample the freshly caught fish at a popular local beachfront restaurant.

                Day 7 Relax in Hvar - Jeep Safari (Optional)

                Scedro beach, Hvar, Croatia, Unforgettable Croatia

                This is the ultimate location for a day of leisure. The sun loungers at the popular Bonj les Bains Beach Club provide a great sunbathing and relaxing option. Nearby there are many pristine beaches that offer an idyllic retreat.

                Delve into Hvar’s rich history by exploring the 13th century walls that surround the port town, its hilltop fortress and elegant main square. If you’re feeling a little more active, join our optional small group Jeep Safari Tour for a day exploring the island’s picturesque sites. Visit the long-forgotten villages that were abandoned when the locals decided to migrate to the coast in the 1950s.

                  Day 8 Sea Transfer to Dubrovnik

                  Dubrovnik Cable Car

                  Today you will depart for your final destination on this holiday, the Pearl of Adriatic – Dubrovnik.

                  Upon arrival, our driver will meet you at the harbour and take you to your hotel. In the afternoon, we will organise a private guided tour of the Old Town (combined with Game of Thrones tour if you’re a fan of the TV show), taking you to locations where this world-popular TV show was filmed and introducing you to the beauty of the town which wasn’t diminished even by severe shelling during Homeland war in the 90s.

                  Evening at leisure.

                    Day 9 Dubrovnik - Visit to Lokrum island nature reserve (Optional)

                    Lokrum Peacock

                    For a day surrounded by nature and tranquillity, hop on a ferry for a day trip to Lokrum island nature reserve, offering beautiful wild beaches and remains of a 12th-13th century Benedictine monastery of St Mary and a cloister garden.

                    Enjoy a day of nature, surrounded by Lokrum’s locals: peacocks and wild bunnies. There’s a simple café offering drinks and quick bites but it’s advisable to bring your own picnic if you plan on staying longer.

                      Day 10 Dubrovnik - Walk Old City Walls (Optional)

                      Dubrovnik city walls

                      Walk the stunning Old City walls, with St John’s, Bokar and Minceta tower forts along the way, for breath-taking views of Dubrovnik’s surroundings and watching waves crash into the fortifications.

                      For a stunning sunset, take a cable car up Srdj hill, offering stunning panorama of Dubrovnik and Elaphiti islands in front. End your day on a high note and treat yoursef. lf to a dinner or a glass of wine at Panorama restaurant.
