Day 1: Dubrovnik

Join us in King’s Landing during the morning, so you have enough time to settle in your cabin at your leisure, as well as to explore the Dubrovnik Old Town, one of the biggest and best preserved living monuments in the world. Enjoy the history, culture, high end cuisine and the booming night life. We spend the night in port of Gruž.

Day 2: Šipan

We start our sailing for the week with a short cruise to the island of Šipan, stopping to swim and enjoy the beautiful Elaphite islands along the way. After the busy streets of Dubrovnik, we are welcomed to the calm atmosphere of Šipan, where we can enjoy a quiet afternoon and evening, as the sun sets over the Adriatic.

Day 3: Mljet

We make our way to Pomena on the island of Mljet, one of the oldest National parks in Croatia. The two beautiful salt lakes, the main part of the NP, are set like two blue jewels into the miles and miles of deep green pine forest that surround them. Walk with the butterflies, and swim in the crystal clear waters of the park, and retire to a quiet evening beneath the centuries old pines of the island.

Day 4: Korčula

After a short sail, followed by a generous swim stop, we arrive at the birth place of Marco Polo, the famous medieval explorer, whose life journey began on these ancient cobbled streets. Get lost in the any alleys and local businesses, as you learn about the wine and oil that made Korčula so rich in the past. As the sun sets over the western part of the town, enjoy the breeze, which is given to you by the town’s specific architecture.

Day 5: Hvar

Leave behind the serene atmosphere of the south, as we near the party capital of Croatia. As soon as your feet touch the white marble port of Hvar, you are taken away on a journey of history, cuisine and party-culture, which, as the night goes on, will take you further and further down the rabbit hole of street pubs, bars and island nightclubs, in a place which is unlike any other in Croatia. For a calmer traveler, plenty of quiet nooks can be found, where you can enjoy the sights in peace, before the nighttime craziness.

Day 6: Vis

We leave the party and join the army, as we make our way to Vis, and island with and interesting ancient, but truly fascinating recent history, of a military run island. From WW2 until the nineties, Vis was closed off to most people and therefore retains a style of life and architecture which remains specific to itself, and makes it a unique place to experience.

Day 7: Split

As we enjoy our last morning swim stop, we ponder our last destination. 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 8: Split

Depart after breakfast.
