This 8-day voyage on the sparkling Adriatic sets out from Dubrovnik, bringing you to some of Croatia’s most beautiful islands before returning.

The ancient walled city of Dubrovnik offers, a delightful, labyrinthine old town containing a highly appetising restaurant and bar scene. Spend your first night here, then board your vessel bound for Mijet, home to fascinating salt lakes in its national park. Consider renting a bike to explore more of the island.

A description of Korcula, reads like a Mediterranean wishlist. A beautiful island where beaches surround olive groves, vineyards and ancient villages, medieval charm is alive and well here, so explore the local streets and be sure to let your taste buds explore as well. A different taste of the region awaits you on Hvar, one of the more sophisticated and lavish islands in the Adriatic, but even here you’ll find historic landmarks and one of Europe’s oldest community theatres. Overnight to explore all Hvar’s bar and restaurant scene has to offer.

Visit Trstenik, an ideal spot for swimming in between leisurely meals with well regarded local wines. Then head for the Elaiti Islands. A popular spot with tourists, these islands are no less charming for it. Writer George Bernard Shaw described the area as ‘Heaven on Earth’ and many since have been inclined to agree.

Return to Dubrovnik for a guided tour, and more time to explore on your own before departure.
