Day 1: Split

You join us in Split, a town the grew out of an imperial Roman palace over a period of 1700+ years, and offers these layers of history and architecture on the palm of your hand, waiting for you to grasp it. Explore the Diocletian’s palace, hike the Marjan Park Forest, have a long coffee with the locals, and enjoy the fish from the oldest fish market in Croatia.

Day 2: Šibenik

As we cross through the channel of St. Ante, guarded by St. Nicholas fortress (unique and breathtaking), we bow our heads as we enter the city of Croatian kings of old, and later, a valued Venetian city, protected by not one or two, but a total of four major fortresses, which stand as a testament to its importance in history. The cathedral of St. Jacob dominates the old town, a building with no peers, the unique architecture of which continues to inspire even to this day.

Day 3: Telašćica

As we leave Šibenik and start on our sail south, we seem to leave reality and enter a realm of unimaginable beauty. This is how some tend to describe the immeasurable beauty of Telašćica Nature Park, part of the larger National part of Kornati. A mix of barren scenery, followed by patches of lush Mediterranean vegetation, dramatic white cliffs, salt lakes and the pristine sea water of this place will leave you breathless, and a night spent here, in the most wonderful silence the nature has to offer will be an experience that you will not soon forget.

Day 4: Mali Lošinj

Mali Lošinj has always been revered by Croatians and neighboring countries as a bit of a summer super-destination. This small but versatile place has it all, from hotels, bars, restaurants, caps, beaches, bike paths and much more, such as the growing vine scene, ready to jump into the mainstream.

Day 5: Krk

Krk, the town, is conveniently located on the island bearing the same name, tied with Cres for the largest in Croatia. It is, however, the most inhabited island, which you will notice as the streets bustle with life. The counts of Krk, members of the famous Croatian noble family of Frankopan, have made this place famous and wealthy, as well as strong enough to be the last island in the Adriatic to succumb to Venetian rule.

Day 6: Rab

After leaving Krk, we near the unmistakable silhouette of Rab, whose four white stone bell towers leave no space for confusion. As you get lost in its narrow streets, you have the opportunity to study the architecture the Venetians left behind, as well as the locals, with their laid back way of being. Let go and spend the night like a proper Croat, free from worries.

Day 7: Zadar

We finish the week in the capital of Venetian Dalmatia, and once the largest city on the Adriatic. In the shade of late-medieval walls, we start on a journey of beauty and history which is Zadar, a town where eras of history and architecture flow seamlessly and coexist peacefully, as they paint the unique picture of this fascinating place. Wonderful people, food and music are just a stone’s throw away, as you take the stroll towards the Sea Organ and the Sun Monument, where some of the most beautiful sunsets in the world can be seen.

Day 8: Zadar

Depart after breakfast.
