7 Days: Adventure Sailing in Croatia – Via Adriatica

 

It is our pleasure to introduce you to our sailing trip in Croatia– Via Adriatica- Sailing Dalmatian islands. This trip will show you some of the most beautiful Croatian highlights on the Adriatic coast. Fun activities, fine local food, lots of diversity in scenery and different attractions is what you will experience while here. We have a say here in Croatia ( maybe it is universal ? ) that it doesn’t matter where you are as long as you have a good company with you. On this trip, we want to give you both, a good place to be at and a good company.

Dalmatia is a well-known region that covers the big part of Croatian Adriatic coast. Many will say this is the most attractive part of the country for sailing. Beautiful islands, crystal clear sea, local food and good wine, good people, this is all Dalmatia.

On this trip, you will do a big coverage of Dalmatian islands and Adriatic. You will combine sea and the land through different activities, and see some of the most important natural and cultural sites. No previous sailing experience is needed, and this trip is suitable for beginners as well. You will be in safe hands of a professional skipper and a guide who will do their best to create the best possible experience for you!

The picturesque center is perfect for sightseeing and long walks among its numerous streets and historical monuments, beautiful architecture from Roman to modern times. Nowadays, along with Dubrovnik, Split has become famous for being one of the locations HBO picked for filming its popular series Game of Thrones. Usually, we go on board in the afternoon hours. Depending on your arrival time we might need to wait for permission to go on board. In meanwhile you will be offered a couple of options how to spend a time in between. For those who decide to arrive a day earlier, we will be happy to help you with your arrangements, so feel free to give us a note about your earlier arrival. Dinner is included. Overnight: Onboard.

Day 2

The most important one is Old fields in Stari Grad (Old town), with its untouched shape for more than 2000 years. Today, fields in Starigrad are under UNESCO protection. Hvar offers a lot to do during days but also it became known for attractive nightlife. Do not miss an opportunity to walk to the fortress above the Hvar town to enjoy magnificent views. We will have a lunch at the local restaurant, visit the fortress above Hvar and relax at the biggest square in Dalmatia- Hvar square. Depending on time, weather conditions and your preferences optional activity- as kayaking or stand up paddle boarding next to Paklinski islands, may take place. All meals are included. Overnight: Onboard.

Day 3

After lunch in the town and being introduced with its history, you will have an option to have a lazy afternoon in the town, or to be active and do optional buggy ride to one of the biggest sandy beaches in the area- in Lumbarda. Sandy beaches are rare in Dalmatia, and locals and tourist are appreciating ones available very much! After swimming or having a massage or drink on the beach, we are returning to Korčula for a dinner. All meals are included. Overnight: Onboard.

Day 4

Did you know: it is believed that the first mongoose in Croatia was brought from India on Mljet at the beginning of the 20th century to fight venomous snakes. After enjoying our time in National Park Mljet we will sail away to Palješac Peninsula for overnight in Ston or Kobaš. Kobaš is a very small village with just a few houses, and until a few years ago didn’t even have paved road. As a very small bay with two restaurants, it becomes popular among sailors. We will stop here for a fresh meal in a family owned restaurant. All meals are included. Overnight: Onboard.

Day 5

After Ston, our next goal is Elaphiti islands. Elaphiti is the name for the group of island in Dubrovnik archipelago. We will explore these Adriatic gems by sail, foot, and kayak. Lopud is the first island we visit, where we will go for a walk or hike to the family-owned, small local farm for a homemade dinner. All meals are included. Overnight: Onboard.

Day 6

Dubrovnik- Pearl of the Adriatic, UNESCO site with the biggest walls in Europe. You will be introduced to a rich history of Dubrovnik on a guided tour, where you will be encouraged to ask any question you might have about this fascinating place. We suggest walking the city walls, second biggest in the world. At places, the wall is approximately 75 ft high, which makes it a great sightseeing point to take photos of beautiful scenery.
