FIRST-CLASS | TAILOR-MADE: Discover the city of Split as well as some of Croatia’s most beloved natural landmarks on this Adriatic vacation. Based in Split, you’ll head on day trips to the Plitvice Lakes and the River Krka Waterfalls, as well as have time to explore the city at leisure.


This 5-day Croatian vacation takes you to Split with day trips to the Plitvice Lakes and the River Krka Waterfalls. It features first-class accommodations and guided tours. 

Your journey to Croatia showcases Split, the nation’s second-largest city and the largest city on the Dalmatian Coast, as well as nearby natural landmarks. Based at a hotel located within Diocletian’s Palace, the city’s most famous landmark, you’ll have several days based in the city to explore near and far. One day, head to the Plitvice Lakes, the most cherished natural spots in the country. Hike around the 16 lakes and admire the marble rock formations, karst rivers, waterfalls, and winding streams surrounding the gem-like lakes. Another day, head to the Sibenik Riviera to see the oldest town on the Adriatic and visit the waterfalls of the River Krka, a series of waterfalls alongside 19th-century watermills that conjure one of the peaceful environments in the nation. The rest of your time is at leisure in Split. Be sure to explore the former home of the Roman Emperor, Diocletian’s Palace (it’s right next door to the hotel!), and see the city’s collection of Roman and ancient artifacts, including two Egyptian sphinxes. 

At the end of your stay, connect back to the airport for onward travels.

Day 2

Plitvice Lakes Group Tour

Our comfortable, air-conditioned mini-van or bus will pick you up at the prearranged location and head up through the countryside towards - Plitvice Lakes. The unity and harmony of 16 lakes and their rare natural and cultural value is not famous only throughout Croatia, but also worldwide; earning this remarkable national park a coveted place on UNESCO's list of World Heritage sites. Arriving to Plitvice, we'll walk through these ancient woodlands led by our experienced guide. The path takes us first across Gornja Jezera (Upper Lakes), a system of 12 lakes separated by travertine barriers. Then it's time for a peaceful boat ride towards the second area called Donja Jezera (Lower Lakes), placed in a limestone canyon. Wherever you are in Pltivice it's easy to see why its travertine marble formations are such an extraordinary natural phenomenon. The barriers, sills and other forms created in these lakes, karst rivers and streams are still an ongoing process that shapes the wonderful landscapes that make your walk through the park so enjoyable. It's these same travertine formations that have and are still creating the numerous magnificent waterfalls here. Over time, the water changes its course, leaving some barriers dry as it deposits new layers elsewhere. This constant evolution makes the Plitvice Lakes never look the same. The best way to actually see this happening is when you are standing in front of the Big Waterfall, 78 meters high. The roaring thunder of the water as it hits the ground is unforgettable! Our journey ends with a tram ride. At the end, we suggest to use the opportunity to taste typical local dishes from this area in a local tavern (optional). After lunch we will drive back to Split/Zagreb.

Day at Leisure

Day 4

River Krka Waterfalls and Sibenik

Your day begins with a pleasant coach drive through the karsts hinterland of Sibenik Riviera. You will arrive in the town of Sibenik, the oldest Croatian town on the Adriatic coast. It is also called Kresimir's town, since it was the residence of King Petar Kresimir IV, the most important ruler of the ancient Croatian state. It grew from an old Croatian fort near the fortress of St. Michael, which still overlooks the town. Upon arrival, you can enjoy sightseeing one of the most valuable sacral monuments in Dalmatia - the St. James' Cathedral dating from the 15 century. By many things it is unique, not only in the Croatian architecture, but in the European as well.

You will then continue to the famous waterfalls of the River Krka. Here, in beautiful natural surroundings, the River Krka forms picturesque waterfalls cascading over 17 natural barriers. You will visit the restored ethnological monuments to become better acquainted with the customs of the region. The preserved watermills are from the 19th century and have exceptional cultural and historical significance. You will see presentations of milling wheat, washing and pounding of cloth, weaving of fabrics and floor masts, horseshoe smithing, ploughing, planting, the preparation of the food in the old kitchens and more. You will walk along the wooden paths to Skradinski buk - the longest and the loveliest waterfall on the Krka River. This is a spot where the stunning beauty is expressed in full through the perennial play of sun and water. Here you will have free time for walking, sightseeing, photograph taking and swimming in this beautiful environment.

Note: Guests must be able to walk over varying terrain and approximately 100 steps (together in Sibenik and in the National Park). Walking at Krka National Park is at guests' discretion during free time. Swimming is at guests' on risk as no lifeguard is on duty. Conservative attire (no tank tops or shorts) that covers both shoulders and knees is suggested when visiting the Cathedral in Sibenik.
