Day 1: Trogir - Split - Trogir
Your adventure will begin in fitting style in Trogir. After touring the town centre we’ll journey to Split, a UNESCO World Heritage-listed city beside the azure Adriatic. Here, our trail will take us into the white walls of Diocletian’s Palace, a vast fortress filled with years of history. We’ll also take in the Grgur Ninski Statue and the Cathedral and Bell Tower of St Domnius before taking a seat at a family-owned tavern for an authentic meal – and warm Croatian welcome.
Day 2: Trogir - Krka National Park - Trogir
This morning will see us seeking the crystalline lakes and energetic rivers of Krka National Park. Then, it’s onwards to a hidden treasure: the Bibich Winery, where we’ll enjoy an afternoon of pure indulgence. At this small family-owned establishment we’ll learn the history of winemaking in the region while being treated to local wines and gourmet tapas. We’ll round off our day with free time to relax back in Trogir.
Day 3: Trogir - Korcula
Today we’ll leave the mainland behind, catching the ferry from Split to Korcula – our home for the next two nights. This spellbinding island brings together tranquil coves with twisted olive groves, rolling vineyards and timeless fishing villages. Reputed to be the birthplace of Marco Polo, it’s hard to see why he would’ve wanted to leave. After checking into our hotel, we’ll get our bearings with a walk through the Old Town – and before the day is over, there’s time to enjoy a dinner and a local cooking class.
Day 4: Korcula
Today you can wake in your own time, knowing the whole day is to spend just as you wish. You can lounge at a nearby beach, or find a café and get to know the local cuisine. If you’re in the mood for exploration, you can even hop aboard a taxi boat to Vrnik, a gem of an island that’s popular with locals and in-the-know travellers.
Day 5: Korcula - Peljesac Peninsula - Kotor
After bidding farewell to Korcula, we’ll set sail to the nearby Pelješac Peninsula – a hotspot for winemaking since the days of the Roman Empire. We’ll savour the fruits of this ancient tradition on a tour of a local winery, before we leave Croatia briefly for a night in Montenegro. With steep mountainsides plunging into deep, turquoise waters, Kotor Bay is a soul-stirring sight – and at the centre lies UNESCO World Heritage-listed Kotor town, seemingly untouched by time.
Day 6: Kotor - Dubrovnik
This morning we’ll delve into Kotor’s history, wandering through cobbled streets and exploring the cathedral of Saint Tryphon and the picture-perfect harbour. After stopping off in charming Perast, we’ll board a boat out into the Bay of Kotor to the gorgeous island of Our Lady of the Rocks. While here, we’ll explore the intriguing Byzantine-style church, before heading back to dry land.
Day 7: Dubrovnik
With a full day in Dubrovnik, there’s still plenty of time to explore together before our journey draws to an end. A guided tour will take us into the Old Town, where we’ll see top-drawer sites including the Franciscan Monastery, Sponza Palace, the Cathedral of Our Lady and the Old Port. If the weather is on our side, we’ll take the opportunity to climb Mount Srd by cable car. From our lofty position, we’ll see if we can watch the late afternoon sun turn the rooftops golden. Tonight, there’s a final included dinner to enjoy together.
Day 8: Dubrovnik - Elaphite Islands - Dubrovnik
Our last day will see us visit the Elaphiti archipelago before returning to Dubrovnik, where our tour ends.
