Trip Overview

Day 1

Arrival in Croatia

Welcome to Croatia! Take included transportation with your new friends to our first stop--the vibrant port city of Split!

Find yourself in the economic and cultural center of the Dalmatian Coast. This Mediterranean city’s small-town vibe and laid-back locals have made it become one of the hottest destinations in Europe.

Enjoy your opening dinner with your new friends at a local restaurant as you ease into Croatian culture.

Day 2

Split & Sea Kayaking

Start your first morning in Croatia with a walking tour through Diocletian’s Palace to learn about Split’s rich history that dates back over a thousand years. 

From Romans through Illyrians and Slavic people, all these nations left a mark on Split and the final product is today's fusion of different cultures and architectures that give this city a unique look.

In the afternoon, escape the city and venture out on sea kayaks. Discover small beaches and explore the underworld as you snorkel around ancient stone pyramids that emerge out of the sea.

Day 3

Island of Hvar

Say goodbye to the mainland and travel by ferry to the island of Hvar, the queen of the Croatian Dalmatian Islands.

Head out for an orientation walk around town with your Trip Leader to learn about Hvar and how it's been a retreat for travelers dating back to the 19th century.

Pack your swimsuits and head out to Pokonji Dol, a small bay at the end of the island where you can run away from tourists and enjoy a nice relaxing day on the beach.

Day 4

Blue Cave and Vis Island

Cruise the open waters on a private speed boat to the island of Vis, the furthest island from the mainland, and a former Yugoslav military base.

Spend the day swimming in secluded bays and visiting hidden caves, including Blue Cave, one of Croatia’s most unique natural wonders.

Return to Hvar and join the group for an included dinner. Experience the nightlife of Hvar with your friends after a full day of explorations.

Day 5

Korcula

After breakfast, get ready to hop over to another island. Today you will travel by ferry to the island known as the Emerald Isle, Korcula.

Take to the streets with your Trip Leader to get to know the medieval walled Old Town. View the Venetian-styled buildings with red roof tops and be sure to check out Saint Mark’s Cathedral, a stunning Gothic-Renaissance-style church. 

In the afternoon, visit the tiny village of Pupant. Set in the mainland of the island, Pupant is home to one of the last remaining traditional family restaurants. Tonight you will enjoy an authentic meal and have an opportunity to taste homemade wine.

Day 6

Vineyards of Lumbarda

Enjoy breakfast at your hotel then head over to the small, coastal village of Lumbarda, said to be the oldest settlement on Korcula island.

Visit a local winery that produces a unique wine that was originally cultivated by the Greeks and brought to the Adriatic Isles thousands of years ago. Afterward, explore this small fishing village by taking a walk to Przine Bay, home to one of the rare sandy beaches on the Adriatic Coast.

Return to the town of Korcula and enjoy a free evening to discover the highlights of this island paradise. We suggest indulging in a seafood meal fresh from the Mediterranean Sea.

Day 7

Road tripping to Dubrovnik

Say goodbye to the islands and head across the mainland. Cruise across the Peljesac Peninsula stopping at a winery that produces the famous Black Wine, found nowhere else in the world.

Stop in the town of Stona, famous for the 2nd longest consecutive walls in Europe, totaling over 4 miles in length and dating back to the 14th century. Sample a variety of oysters that are farmed right in the local bay.

Arrive in Dubrovnik, and after a short rest, join your Trip Leader for a walking tour through this ancient city filled with mesmerizing medieval architecture. In the evening, gather together for a farewell dinner in this wonderful city.

Day 8

Relaxation & Departure

On the final day of our adventure, wake up early to soak in the last morning in Croatia together.

Say goodbye to your new friends and depart at any time of the day. Be sure to get instructions from your Trip Leader on how to take taxis, buses, or local transportation to the airport.

Ask your trip leader for suggestions if you choose to spend more time in Dubrovnik.

"Truly unforgettable! For my first experience leaving my home country, I couldn't have imagined anything better. Amazing trip leaders, amazing people, amazing experience. I would give more than five stars if I could!!!!" -Morgan R.

"It is great for people that want to travel at an affordable rate and want to travel with others rather than do the solo thing! It also allows for you to take very minimal time off of work since most trips are over the weekend! I can't recommend this company enough. :) It's an amazing community to be a part of." -Brooke T.

"I honestly cannot say enough about my experience to Ireland with this group! Currently sitting in the airport on my way home and can’t stop thinking about how perfect it was. Somehow they put 11 completely different people on a trip and made us feel like a family. Eric was my team leader and I couldn’t have asked for anyone better! They have amazing relationships with the local businesses and restaurants and you can tell they trjoy care about the countries they visit. I can’t wait for my next trip" -Darbi F.
