Highlights of Croatia

 

Whether you choose to explore the historic charm of Dubrovnik and the golden sand beaches of Split or embark on an activity holiday along Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast, our selection of small group holidays to Croatia will create memories to last a lifetime. Here are some of our Croatia tour highlights.
 

Dubrovnik

Also known as the ‘pearl of the Adriatic’ the medieval town of Dubrovnik is a popular highlight on our Croatia tours. Almost completely destroyed by shelling in the Siege of Dubrovnik, UNESCO and the local people gracefully restored this fortified town, and it retains a cheerful atmosphere and authentic charm. Wander around the city’s timeworn stone walls on our Cycle the Dalmatian Coast trip for far-reaching views across a patchwork of red-terracotta roofs encased by the azure-blue ocean and jagged coastline.


Split

Step back in time as you wander through Split’s maze of narrow cobblestone streets on our Croatia Discovery Tour. Discover pre-Romanesque churches, Gothic chapels and alley-ways lined with rustic townhouses adorned with faded emerald-green shutters. Browse eclectic boutiques, delve into hidden galleries and stop for a bite to eat in a hole-in-the-wall cafe. Head to the seafront for a gentle stroll along the Riva Promenade and savour fresh seafood in one of the waterfront restaurants, before relaxing on the golden sand beach lapped by crystal-clear turquoise waters and playing a game of Picigin with the locals.

 

Plitvice Lakes National Park

Follow timber boardwalks around a labyrinth of aquamarine lakes in the Plitvice National Park on our Highlights of Croatia Tour. Sixteen lagoons of shimmering topaz water sit amongst lush verdant forests and cascade over steep limestones cliffs, as pearly-white spray glistens in the sunshine and rainbows beam over the veils of water pouring into the ethereal plunge pools below. These dams of limestone crystals have formed over many millennia, and new chutes frequently burst through the travertine banks, creating a plethora of over ninety waterfalls to explore in this ever-evolving landscape.

 

Solo travel

 

Our small group trips to Croatia are popular with families, couples, friends and solo travellers alike. Travel with like-minded people and make new friends as you discover all of the must-see sights as well as hidden local gems under the expert guidance of your Explore tour leader.
