Why You'll Love This Tour

Overview

Croatia: The Dalmatian Islands​

Azure ocean waters, emerald-draped islands, stone-cut villages, and a rich tradition rooted in the land and the sea combine for a remarkable reel through the celebrated Dalmatian Islands. VBT’s Croatia takes you to Brac and Hvar, passing fragrant lavender fields into tiny hamlets, riding from the Adriatic’s highest peak to its most sparkling beaches and coasting into ancient fishing villages and old mountain enclaves. And you’ll witness the real Dalmatia at a stone cutters school and in the homes of locals who teach you culinary secrets and share cherished family recipes.

Cultural Highlights

  • Ride through fig, pomegranate groves and olive groves and villages bursting with bougainvillea
  • Soak up the Mediterranean lifestyle on two seductive islands: Hvar and Brac
  • Prepare Croatian recipes with a local family in their home and dine together
  • Cool off in the crystal blue waters of the Adriatic Sea with many swimming stops along the way
  • Sample delicious Mediterranean cuisine and fresh seafood like oysters, green tagliatelle with sweet shrimp, grilled squid and seafood risotto
  • Tour Diocletian’s 2,000 year old imperial retirement palace built from local snowwhite limestone, the same material used for the U.S. White House
  • Observe young students in action at one of the few stone cutting and carving schools that teaches this ancient art
  • Enjoy local wines, ice cream and coffee drinks at palm-shaded promenades along bustling yacht harbors
