Croatia - Jewel of the Adriatic

Activity level



Join us in June 2025! It is a funny phenomenon that most people may not immediately think about Croatia when making plans to travel to the Adriatic Sea. Many travellers go to Europe to experience something more than simply sapphire waters and balmy beaches. Usually the goal is experience beautiful architecture, the oldest cities in the world, and some of the best food on planet earth. We thought... "surely there is somewhere in Europe that has all that, PLUS the amazing aquatic experience that a vacation to the Sun includes." And we were right! Croatia is that place!

The natural beauty of Croatia is endless with its’ mountains, waterfalls and lakes, forests, islands and stunning beaches. The tour features seven walking excursions, including the city of Dubrovnik surrounded by 1,940 metres of stone built to protect the city. Ride the Dubrovnik Cable Car to enjoy a captivating birds-eye view. Enjoy a traditional Dalmatian lunch and some wine tasting tours. View the Roman Coliseum at Pula Arena and the flora and fauna of Plitvice Lakes National Park. Relax on the seven-day Yacht cruise on the Adriatic Sea. When it comes to the cataclysmic beauty of Croatia, there is NO better way to experience it, than on our Tour & Cruise!
