Know More about this tour

Start your 8-day Croatia tour with an airport transfer from Split Airport to your hotel. Alternatively, if you are already in the city you can opt for a hotel-to-hotel transfer. Once your tour has started, shared transfers to all the ports are included. If you would like to travel with just your party throughout your tour, simply upgrade to the private transfer option.

Your independent tour includes accommodation in the Dalmatia regions must-visit towns: Split, Hvar, Korula, and Dubrovnik. All hotels are centrally located for maximum convenience, and youll have ample time to explore these stunning towns and islands independently between excursions.

Itinerary:

Day 1: Split
On arrival in Split, check in to your hotel where an envelope will be waiting for you with details of your boat journeys, hotels and excursions throughout the rest of your tour. Then, the rest of the day is yours to spend at leisure. Perhaps visit its pretty shingle beach – Bačvice – or browse the wares at Split Market.

Overnight: Hotel Globo or Hotel President in Split

Day 2: Split – Hvar Island (B)
Relax with breakfast in your hotel and then stroll into the city center for a leisurely paced walking tour. Split’s streets and buildings echo with history, with imprints left by the city’s countless succeeding rulers: Romans, Byzantines, Croatians, Hungarians and Napoleons (not forgetting the Doges of Venice, who had a go, too). Hear the history and see the sights, visiting top Split attractions like the UNESCO-listed Diocletian Palace and Cathedral of St Dominus, where Roman Emperor Diocletian was buried.

Return to your hotel, and then head to the port to board your boat for the short journey to Hvar Island. Check in to your Hvar hotel and spend the rest of your afternoon at leisure. Perhaps seek out its swanky bars, or maybe just loll about on one its suitably sun-baked beaches.

Overnight: Amfora Hotel or Riva Hotel in Hvar Town

Day 3: Hvar Island (B)
After breakfast, amble around the streets on your morning walking tour of Hvar Town. Stroll through Hvar Pjaca – one of Dalmatia’s largest squares – and then wander along the glitzy seaside promenade that doubles up as Hvar Town’s main street. Stroll past the Arsenal building that houses one of the oldest European theaters – Hvar Historical Theatre – and then see the Franciscan monastery with its elegant bell tower.

Your walking tour finishes in town, so that you’re ideally placed to continue sightseeing independently for the rest of the day. It only takes a few strides to escape the crowds on this island, so perhaps take a walk around the island itself, seeking solitude in its gloriously secluded coves or visiting the sleepy towns of Stari Grad or Jelsa (transport to the towns is at your own expense).

Overnight: Amfora Hotel or Riva Hotel in Hvar Town

Day 4: Hvar – Korčula Island (B)
Leave your hotel after breakfast and then cruise from Hvar Port to Korčula. This neighboring island is akin to a tropical idyll, home to a smattering of tiny hamlets that are peppered around its pretty coves. Why not make the most of its stunning scenery on a stroll around? Check in to your Korčula hotel, and then spend the rest of your day at leisure, exploring wherever you wish.

Overnight: Hotel Liburna or Hotel Marko Polo in Korčula

Day 5: Korčula – Dubrovnik (B)
Your morning is yours to do as you please, so after breakfast perhaps sightsee around Korčula Town. One of the many supposed hometowns of the intrepid explorer Marco Polo, Korčula enjoys a wealth of interesting sites, with countless museums vying for your attention alongside picturesque Renaissance and Gothic architecture. Entrance fees to museums and monuments are at your own expense.

Meet your guide at a pre-arranged time in the afternoon, and board your boat back to Croatia’s mainland. Arrive in Dubrovnik around late afternoon, and then check in to your hotel. Spend your evening at leisure.

Overnight: Hotel Aquarius, Hotel Ikva or Hotel Lero in Dubrovnik

Day 6: Dubrovnik (B)
After breakfast, set out on a walking tour of Dubrovnik’s UNESCO-listed Old Town, admiring its intact city walls and discovering its countless charms. See Pile Gate -- the monument that marks the start of the Old Town -- and marvel at the splendor of Sponza Palace – once the city’s custom house and now home to Croatia’s State Archives.

At the end of your tour, the remainder of your day consists of free time. If your morning’s exploration of the Old Town has whet your appetite for more, then continue wandering around, relaxing in its ambient cafés or visiting its many monuments, like St Blaise Church or the Franciscan monastery (own expense).

Overnight: Hotel Aquarius, Hotel Ivka or Hotel Lero in Dubrovnik

Day 7: Dubrovnik (B)
Your entire day is spent at leisure, so after your leisurely breakfast in your hotel, why not venture out of Dubrovnik to see what the pleasures the surrounding countryside holds? Prior to the day, your hotel can assist with any excursions that you may wish to do. Perhaps visit Lokrum Island, famous for its scenic rocky beaches and spectacular reefs, or cruise around the Elafiti Islands – an archipelago of tiny rocks and islands adrift in the Adriatic.

Overnight: Hotel Aquarius, Hotel Ikva or Hotel Lero in Dubrovnik

Day 8: Dubrovnik (B)
Enjoy breakfast and then spend your morning at leisure in Dubrovnik. In the afternoon, check out and then finish your 8-day tour with either a Dubrovnik Airport transfer or hotel transfer.
