TRIP DESCRIPTION

Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast boasts an abundance of lush forested islands and mysterious coves. The seaside ports developed centuries ago are fantastically beautiful, as exemplified by its crowning jewel, the walled city of Dubrovnik. In recent history, the Homeland War kept Croatia isolated, but since declaring independence and with accession into the EU scheduled for 2013, it has rapidly become a wonderful place to visit, and we encourage you to do so now, before its coast becomes an extension of the nearby Rivieras of France and Italy. This part of Croatia is warm and inviting. The region’s colourful red roofs complement the surrounding tropical green waters, and the views are beautifully photogenic. The warmth of the Mediterranean atmosphere and the joyful hospitality of the locals will stimulate you as you revel in tastes including scrumptious olives, unique cheeses, fresh seafood and excellent wines.

You will start and end in Dubrovnik, known as ‘the Pearl of the Adriatic’. Severely damaged in 1667, Dubrovnik managed to preserve its beautiful Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque churches, monasteries, palaces and fountains. Damaged again in the 1990’s during the Homeland War of Independence, it is now the focus of a major restoration program coordinated by UNESCO. Leaving this amazing city, you will first spend three days kayaking, hiking and cycling around Korčula Island, the home of the notable Marco Polo. Korčula is graced with rolling hills, vineyards, olive groves and small villages. You will climb Mt. Ilija for some stunning views over the Adriatic, and at the end of the week take a ferry to the island of Mljet to cycle along cliffs, wild beaches and pristine coves. We hope this exquisite destination retains its charm for many years to come, but urge you to join us now to see why we’re so excited!
