This 14-night Croatia island hopping itinerary is brimming with gastronomic delights, historical charm, exciting nightlife, natural wonders and brilliant beaches.

With accommodation, airport and catamaran transfers, as well as selected guided tours taken care of, all you need to do is pack your bags and enjoy an epic summer holiday.

Gallivant around the shores of Split, Vis, Brač , Hvar and Korčula islands, as well as the popular, ever-charming Dubrovnik.

Your journey will commence in Split, the second biggest city in Croatia.

Marked by the azure waters of the Adriatic Sea blending seamlessly with fascinating architecture, Split is the place to traverse sunny beaches, embrace bustling nightlife and discover two millennia worth of history and culture.

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.

After 3 remarkable nights in Split, you will head off to Croatia’s most distant island, Vis, for 2 nights.

The island promises a feast of fresh seafood and a dreamy haven of Mediterranean paradise.

Renowned for the magnificent sea cave of Biševo, the island served as the Yugoslav National Army’s base, out of bounds to foreign visitors until 1989.

Relative isolation has kept commercialism at bay making for an air of unspoilt beauty.

Next on the itinerary is a 2-night stay on the largest of the central Dalmatian Islands, Brač.

Brac is a historically intriguing destination, known for traditions of olive cultivation, its natural white stone export and skilled sculptors.

Boasting Croatia’s top windsurfing destination and highest mountain on any Adriatic island, it is an adventure-lovers paradise.

The swanky island of Hvar is your next port of call.

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 high-end beach clubs and romantic dining spots.

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

You will spend your concluding 3 nights in Dubrovnik, a beautiful city, dramatic and seductive.

Famous for its UNESCO-protected Old Town, here you can walk quaint historic streets, explore the nearby island of Lokrum, and soak up the sunshine at one of Dubrovnik’s magnificent beaches.
