Highlights

 

Zdravo! Welcome to the sunny, coastal country of Croatia. Get ready to experience a whole lot of fun in the sun with an 11 day Croatia Island Escape.

First stop, Makarska. Stroll the white-pebbled beaches and walk along the promenade, in this seaside town that’s nestled between the sea and Mt. Biokovo. Slip into island-time as you sip cocktails and enjoy peachy-sunsets on the island of Korcula. Wine and dine your way through the incredible local seafood, before continuing on to a place we all know from the legendary Game of Thrones TV show, Dubrovnik.

Explore this UNESCO World Heritage listed city that’s built between rugged cliffs and stunning beaches. Set sail past colourful reefs and citrus plantations towards the unspoiled village of Trstenik. Get ready for a night of hanging on the ship with the crew, before heading to the happening spot of Hvar.

Get your tan on as you lay in the sun and take morning swims off the side of the boat. Spend your last night crawling the strip to find the best waterfront bars in Split. Say see you later to your squad as you leave with memories and friends that will last a lifetime.

 
 

Day 1: Australia – airplane-takeoff – Split 

Depart Australia today to begin your incredible holiday! 

Day 2: Split

Welcome to Croatia! An airport bus service runs from Split airport to Obala Lazareta, on the edge of Split’s old town (cost approx. 30kn/€4). From there, the hotel is a short walk away. Alternatively, catch a taxi from the airport directly to the hotel (approx. 350kn/€45). Spend the rest of the day at your leisure.

Day 3: Split –cruise-icon– Makarska (L,D)

Pucker up you salty sea dogs! It’s time to kiss Split goodbye and head over the ocean for some idyllic island time. Your cabin with private ensuite bathroom on your exclusive sailing boat is waiting for you. After our first sea stint, we’ll arrive in Makarska where we’ll be blessed by the beautiful Biokovo mountains & Croatian island bliss. Lull about the local market eating fresh fruit and ogling bunches of lavender. Stroll the white-pebbled beaches and the long promenade, and get to know your new squad over dinner on the boat tonight. All this in the pretty town setting of Makarska nested between the sea and Mt. Biokovo. Unfathomable.

Day 4: Makarska –cruise-icon– Korcula (B,L)

Korcula may sit incredibly close to the mainland of Croatia, but it’s an island all of its own, which means we’ll be slipping onto island vibes accordingly. Hidden bars, peachy sunsets & cobbled streets by the beach, our appreciation for this country will be skyrocketing.

Some sources say the original adventurer Marco Polo was a Korcula kid. It wouldn’t surprise us if a godsmackingly beautiful island like this inspired someone to hey out and see what other beaut the world had to offer. We’ll be eased in to our evening with Venetian architecture, stone streets and and abundance of local wine and seafood.

Free time add on (at own expense): BBQ Lunch 

Day 5: Korcula –cruise-icon– Dubrovnik (B)

This morning we will wake up in beautiful Korcula but we’ll then be heading off to Dubrovnik. in the words of Bernard Shaw, acclaimed socialist and playwright, “those that seek paradise on earth should seek it in Dubrovnik.” You heard the man – lets do this! 

So here we are, paradise on earth. Rugged cliffs, seas that beg a dip, and buildings filled with stories and history. To take it all in, you can wander along the 2 kilometers of old town walls or hike to the top of Mt Srj. Dinner at a local restaurant followed by some party vibes at the cities incredible array of clubs will complete things just perfectly. 

Day 6: Dubrovnik (B,D)

The city of Dubrovnik is so much more then just a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a Game of Thrones location – not that either of those claims to fame are even mildly mediocre, After you’ve been guided around the city with intricate detail you’ll be armed with the knowledge to pick out a waterside rock bar where you can swim and indulge ’til you heart’s content. 

Free time add on (at own expense): Kayaking Trip

Free time add on (at own expense): Dubrovnik City walking Tour 

Day 7: Dubrovnik –cruise-icon– Trstenik (B,L)

Don’t hate us for dragging you away from Dubrovnik. We wouldn’t do it unless we knew about another paradise waiting just around the corner……

It will be full blown euphoria this morning as we sail past the palms, cypresses, olive trees, citrus plantations and colourful reefs of the Elephite Islands. As the sun sets we’ll dock at the unspoiled village of Trstenik where we can look back on the Korcula archipelago with awe. All enjoyed over an optional Captains dinner and a night of ship shenanigans. 

Free time add on (at own expense): Captain’s dinner 

Day 8: Trstenik –cruise-icon– Hvar (B,L)

Feel free to let the hum of the boat and the sway of the sea keep you in bed all moring where you can catch up on some zzz’s. Meanwhile, the captain will be heading us in the direction of the hip and happenin’ Hvar.

Starting on a high note, our next port of call is the worls renowned island of Hvar. Pine-covered slopes, vineyard & moored yachts make for a stunning coastline, while off the boat we’ll discover a charming town square, a 16th century theater and a banquet of nightlife to tap in to. 

Day 9: Hvar –cruise-icon– Split (B,L)

So off we go…..Morning swims and a long lunch on the deck of our boat will seal our affection of Hvar and leave us craving more of the Adriatic Sea. So off we go…..

Split’s our last night and you’ve got this city sussed. See the 220 buildings and pretty cathedral of Diocletian’s Palace and tick off any boxes you may have missed the first time we were here. Then join the crew for a final dinner and get cozy with some of Split’s famous waterfront bars. 

Free time add on (at own expense): Split Farewell Dinner 

Day 10: Split – airplane-takeoff– Australia  (B)

There you have it, the astounding beauty of Croatia and its cluster of islands. You probably always imagined you’d be blown away by it, but the new squad of life long pals will be the real surprise. Make your way to the airport for your homeward flight. 

Day 11: Australia 

Arrive home today.
