It's almost like the Garden of Eden

Walk on wooden walkways that wind through green forests, over crystal-clear lakes and by hundreds of waterfalls. Every turn brings a new wonder, a new waterfall, another cascade, blue butterflies, fish swimming in the clear water; this is nature at its most beautiful.

Itinerary

Welcome to Zagreb

Touchdown Croatia!

We’ll start our journey in Zagreb, the capital city.

Upon arrival at the airport, you’ll be transferred to your hotel in a private coach. Check-in and unwind.

Depending on your time of arrival, we’ll arrange a walking tour of the capital, exploring the most important cultural and historical monuments (may include the iconic Stone Gate, the St.Mark’s Church, Lower Town and more)!

In the evening, bond with your new crew and together, we’ll head to a local restaurant where we’ll have our first authentic Croatian dinner! Recommended: try štrukle (a popular traditional dish served in Croatian households).

   Meals:   Dinner

  Hotel:  Park 45 Hotel (or similar)

Plitvice Lakes National Park (UNESCO World Heritage Site)

After having breakfast,  we’ll check-out from our hotel and head to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Plitvice Lakes National Park.

With green forests surrounding 16 lakes with distinctive hues of turquoise and blue, which are, in turn, linked by a series of some of the most beautiful waterfalls in the world, this is the closest to the Garden of Eden you’ll get. Walk on a pathway of wooden planks as you make your way through the park. These stretch out over the lakes and wind by the waterfalls, ensuring that there’s a stunning view no matter where you look. This is truly  a photographer’s paradise, so keep your trigger-finger at the ready (Note: a boat and tram ride within the park is included as part of the itinerary).

Then: we’ll hit the road to Split. Upon arrival, check-in at the hotel. You’ll be free for the rest of the evening to relax and have dinner.

   Meals:   Breakfast,

  Hotel:  Hotel Ora (or similar)

Blue Cave + Hvar + Explore the Adriatic Sea

After breakfast, spend the entire day exploring the most beautiful islands in the Adriatic Sea. 

From Split, start off with a magical experience - sailing into the Blue Cave. During midday, this small sea cave is illuminated by sunlight, giving it a surreal blue glow. It is incredible that natural light entering into a cave can give rise to such a beautiful spectacle.

We’ll continue towards the Island of Vis where we head to Komiža, a pretty coastal fishing town. You’ll have free time here to lunch and just relax on the beach.

Then, continue enjoying the boat ride and sea views as we sail onwards to Hvar, one of the most beautiful harbors in the world. Make the most of your free time to discover its ancient architecture and feel free to climb up on the Fortica fortress. After this beautiful and relaxing day take in last views of the Adriatic and its islands at sunset before returning to Split.

   Meals:   Breakfast,

  Hotel:  Hotel Ora (or similar)

Split 101

Today, set out to explore the city of Split. 

Accompanied by a local, English-speaking guide, we’ll visit the enormous Diocletian's Palace, built by the Emperor as the ultimate retirement home, where he could relax and grow cabbages. This palace also served as the site for filming parts of the TV series Game of Thrones. It’s one of the most impressive Roman ruins in the world and today, it’s still inhabited with residents living in the quarters where Diocletian's soldiers once lived.

You will also visit sacred Roman temples and the Cathedral of St Dujam (the oldest Catholic cathedral in the world!), the famous Golden Gate, Romanesque churches, Renaissance, Gothic, Baroque palaces and more.

Recommended: spend the evening exploring the city’s beautiful beaches. You can head to Bačvice, famous for the game “picigin“, a fun Croatian ball game. Wade through shallow waters and try keeping the ball from touching the water!

   Meals:   Breakfast,

  Hotel:  Hotel Ora (or similar)

The Game Of Thrones Trail

Get set for an exciting day as we explore Croatia’s historic fortresses that double up as filming spots in the popular TV series Game of Thrones. 

Up first : the Klis Fortress. Boasting over 2000 years of history, with many pivotal moments and stronghold’s throughout the many different waves of rule, this fortress stands tall even today, portrayed as the fictional city of Meereen in Game of Thrones.

Then: the impressive Walls of Ston. Built in the 15th century, these walls were once 7 kilometers long, featuring 3 fortresses and over 40 towers. So remarkable in fact, Ston's walls are the longest fortress system in Europe, second in the world only to the Great Wall Of China. With a modern infrastructure, profitable land, and a well fortified system, Ston is a cultural treasure, away from Croatia’s popular spots. 

Later: Dubrovnik. A city which George Bernard Shaw called ‘Paradise on Earth’, Game of Thrones fans will recognize this coastal city as the real-life King’s Landing.

Explore Dubrovnik with a private guide. Get an overview of its entire history, taking you through the fortified walls, over the entire Old Town (UNESCO World Heritage Site) and head to the city’s monumental walls, that protected the town against sieges during the Middle Ages. Take a relaxing walk along the length of this UNESCO World Heritage Site, as you gaze at the blue sea and the red roofs of houses below.

   Meals:   Breakfast,

  Hotel:  Hotel Berkeley Resort & Spa (or similar)

Cycle through the countryside + Wine Tasting + Farewell Dinner

This morning, strap on some gear because we’re exploring a hidden side of Dubrovnik- by cycle! 

We start our journey at Gruda, a picturesque village 45 mins from the city. Pedal through dirt trails leading to quieter and scenic villages around the city. Feel the wind in your hair as you get fascinating views of the Adriatic Sea, the coast and the city’s walls. Cycle through vineyards, olive groves, waterfalls, along the river, and next to medieval watermills. 

Make several stops, such as visit to a 600-year old Franciscan monastery, and a mountain stream where you can take a refreshing swim in crystal clear waters (swimming is optional). During one of the stops you will refresh yourselves with sandwiches and water. The adventure ends with a visit to an award winning local winery, where you’ll get to sample some of the finest Dalmatian wine. 

In the evening : it’s your last night in Croatia! Celebrate with a glass of wine and be sure to revel with your new group of friends afterwards with a farewell dinner.

   Meals:   Breakfast, Dinner

  Hotel:  Hotel Berkeley Resort & Spa (or similar)
