Lapped by the azure waters of the Adriatic Sea blending seamlessly with fascinating architecture and history, explore Split and the surrounding Croatian islands of Korčula and Hvar on this enchanting Croatia island hopping holiday. 

We arrange your accommodation, airport and catamaran transfers, as well as selected guided tours while you explore Korčula and Hvar islands, both a short catamaran ride away from Split.

This 8-day Croatia island hopping itinerary is jam-packed with gastronomic delights, historical charm, exciting nightlife and brilliant beaches.

Your tour to Croatia’s southern region of Dalmatia will depart from Split, the second biggest city in Croatia. 

The UNESCO-protected 1700-year old Diocletian’s Palace in the centre of Split is one of the best-preserved ancient structures in the region. 

Built in the beginning of the 4th century AD it essentially served as the emperor’s retirement home.

After 3 days of traipsing sunny beaches, bustling nightlife and two millennia worth of history and culture in Split, your tour takes you to the medieval-walled peninsula of Korčula island. 

Known for its stone stairways, Gothic-Renaissance cathedral and enchanting forests, you can head into the hills amongst pine woods, vineyards and olive groves to savour island specialities made from home produce. 

Embark on a breath-taking sea kayak excursion paddling around the Korčula archipelago.

Two nights in Korčula sets you off to your last port of call, the chic island of Hvar. 

Hvar stuns with its yacht-filled harbour, Renaissance-era cathedral, Medieval streets, as well as the oldest public theatre in Europe. 

There is no shortage of swanky beach clubs and romantic dining spots.

Enjoy the finer things in life in Hvar, a true haven of luxury, before heading back home.
