Once a secret destination of in-the-know travelers, Croatia is bursting upon the international scene. And for good reason: This small country on the shores of the Adriatic Sea has more than its share of natural wonders, beautiful coastline and picturesque islands.
Highlights of Croatia include beautiful Plitvice Lakes, the historic cities Dubrovnik and Split, and its more than a thousand islands along the beautiful Dalmatian Coast including Hvar, Korcula and many others. Whether you're into local cuisine, natural wonders, history, nightlife or active adventures, Croatia has lots to offer for travelers who seek unique experiences.
Cover the highlights of Croatia in this one-week itinerary. Starting in Zagreb, the capital, you'll make your way south to Dubrovnik, stopping at Plitvice National Park and the ancient port cities of Zadar and Split, before spending a few days relaxing on the beach on the island of Hvar then ending your trip in the medieval town of Dubrovnik.
Planning a two-week family vacation in Croatia may seem like a daunting task, but with plenty of activities for the family, the choices are endless. This itinerary is filled with time relaxing on the beach in Hvar, scuba diving on the island of Krapanj, swimming in the waterfalls of National Park Krka and taking in the historical sites of the ancient Mediterranean coastal towns of Zadar and Split.
Korcula is known for its white wine. Grk wine is a white wine grape variety found in the village of Lumbarda. To take in the Korcula scenery and drink some wine at the same time, join John (who moved to Korcula with his wife Rachael 6 years ago from the UK) on a 4-5 hour tour cycling through Lumbarda. Taste the different wines while getting the local intimate experience which you will not find anywhere else.
The sun always shines on the Dalmatian Coast — one of the most scenic coastal drives in Europe. In 12 days, you'll have the freedom to explore on your own, starting from historic Zagreb and ending at the walls of mighty Dubrovnik with a wide selection of national parks and beautiful coastal towns to stop at along the way.
Croatia is a country of stunning landscapes and rich, ancient culture - you'll experience the best of both worlds on this adventurous 10-day tour. Explore historic cities, kayak the pristine waters of the Pakleni Islands, and get to know Croatia by seeing and doing it all.
In Croatia, food is the star of most any social situation. Whatever the main course, expect it to come with a helping of history and cultural tradition as a side dish.

Highlights of croatia: zagreb to dubrovnik - 8 days, Croatia - Jun 6 - Jun 14, 2018
Our trip to Croatia was amazing, what a beautiful country. We have been wanting to make this trip for years but never got around to planning, mostly because of the complicated itinerary we wanted. Thanks to Veselka the planning was easy. She made sure we got to do everything we wanted and booked the perfect hotels and apartments, all in the best locations. She also made sure that someone was there at every point to take us to our accommodation making this a very stress free and relaxing vacation. Our family travels a lot and we all agree this was one of our favorite trips.
Trip to croatia, Croatia - May 29 - Jun 9, 2018
Our Croatia tour came at the end of a longer trip. Our time was limited so we wanted to ensure we made the most of the time we had in Croatia. Veselka worked with us up front to determine what kind of experience we were looking for. Our goal was to see and experience Croatia, not only the highly touristed areas, which of course are beautiful, but also Croatia beyond that. We wanted a taste of the Croatia that required a bit of exploration.
Veselka paired us up with some fabulous guides for... read more

Hi! We'd love to spend the week doing some island hopping. We love seeing some culture, eating great seafood and having a bit of beach time on secluded beaches. We'd rather avoid the touristy areas and discover some beautiful places
