CROATIA PACKAGE Starting from 89,999 p.p on twin sharing basis

Not rated yet.

Ever dreamt of being in a secluded island? To disconnect and unplug yourself......and let youself be lured by the guiles of the sea and sun. 

We bring you a package which gives you just that, it brings the essence of Croatia and packs in 2 spectaular days in a James Bond like island (Vis) where you can disconnect from the world, where your breathe actually gets caught in your throat when you  glide into the tiny little cove, encircled with towering cliffs. At the base of the bay there is a small parting between the rocks, where a tiny white pebble beach is hidden. The water is a deep inky indigo in some parts, and clear bright green in others. Beneath the water the coral on the sea floor is purple, and electric blue fish dart around in schools. 

 and as the poem goes....

“Nights and days came and passed
And summer and winter
and the rain.
And it was good to be a little Island.
A part of the world
and a world of its own
All surrounded by the bright blue sea.” 
― Margaret Wise BrownThe Little Island

Detailed Itinerary

Day 1

ARRIVAL ZAGREB

Depending on your arrival flight, you will be met by your English speaking driver at the Zagreb airport for a private transfer to Hotel Dubrovnik in Zagreb.

Zagreb, the old Austro-Hungarian capital is a seductive blend of Central European dignity and Mediterranean joie de vivre where you can sip coffee in Viennese cafés and spend a night at the opera for a fraction of the cost elsewhere in Europe. And most importantly, without the swarming crowds of people that flock to Budapest, Krakow or Prague.

After checking into your hotel, you can either enjoy the city nightlife or tuck in early after your long flight

Day 2

ZAGREB WALKING TOUR -PLITVICE LAKES-DRIVE TO ZADAR BY EVENING

This morning, your guide will meet you in your hotel lobby at 10:00 AM to take you on an overview walking tour of Zagreb’s historic district. While it has only been the political capital of Croatia since 1991, Zagreb has long been a cultural and artistic confluence of Eastern and Western influences. In medieval times, Zagreb consisted of two separate towns, Kaptol, the religious center, and Gradec, the commercial hub. The river Medvescak in-between the two towns, was often the site of fierce battles between Kaptol and Gradec. Today, Grad and Kaptol together form the Upper Town, or Gornji Grad, and is the historic Old Town of Zagreb, while the Lower Town, or Donji Grad, on the plains is more chic and contemporary.

Your guide will take you to the Upper Town of Gornji Grad where you may begin your tour of the historic heart of Zagreb (approximately a ten- minute walk from your hotel along the park and tree-lined streets of Zagreb). The best way to get around the Old Town is on foot.

As you enter the Upper Town you see the stunning St. Stephen’s Cathedral, the most prominent landmark on the city’s skyline.

After this is all, you may end today in the central Jelacic square with its colorful cafes and terraces, where you may stop and refresh yourself with beer and the delectable Croatian cuisine

  • One of the quirky museums that you will visit is the “The Museum of Broken Relationships” where you will see some quirky memorabilia of jilted lo

At noon, your tour guide and driver will take you toward Plitvice Lakes National Park.After approximately1.5 hours of driving you will reach Plitvice Lakes, a specific geological and hydrogeological phenomenon of karst, with 16 bigger and few smaller lakes, gradually lined up, separated by barriers. The cascading waterfalls, the aquamarine virgin lakes surrounded by dense, thick forests… Plitvice Lakes are a natural phenomenon of rare and unique beauty. Feast your eyes on one of the most beautiful places in the world!

UNESCO has declared it with all rights as the World's natural inheritance.

Drive to Zadar will take 1.5 hours.

Zadar is an ancient Mediterranean port city. The old town, surrounded by walls and towers on a peninsula, with a new, urban part – which is connected by a bridge, a symbol of the city. It is a treasure trove of archaeological treasures and monuments to the ancient, medieval and Renaissance periods.

We will use Zadar as our base to explore Kornati Islands, Krka National Park - which are all an hour or 2 away from Zadar

Enjoy a romantic evening watching the famous sunsets of Zadar, at a beachside restaurant with the sound of waves and the breeze gently tugging at your hair.

Perfect Gnocci, delectable seafood risotto to absolutely die for at Lungi Mare Restaurant(recommended by locals) in Zadar

Overnight Stay at “Success” a 4 star Luxury Executive Apartment with 17 luxurious rooms

Day 3

SAILING TO THE KORNATI ISLANDS

KORNATI ISLANDS is a group of about 130 islands, islets and reefs sprinkled in the deep blue sea of the Adriatic covering an area of about 64 sq km, located just across the cities of Zadar and Sibenik.The largest island, and the one that you will visit today is Kornat from which the archipelago takes its name. Other larger islands are, Piskara, Kurba Vela, Zut, Sit ,Vrgada and Levrnaka. Apart from a tiny area of cultivated land with fig trees, olives and vineyards, Kornati islands are rocky, covered with thin grass, rare trees and Mediterranean scrubs.

The Kornati have no permanent inhabitants, although the present owners from nearby larger Dalmatian islands periodically visit Kornati to tend their vineyards and olive groves, bringing their sheep to graze.

The sea around the islands is rich with fish and a variety of marine life.... The islands have no spring water, only rainwater collected in water holes. The unique feature of the islands lies in their rugged shores with many caves and coves. The landscape of chalk limestone is covered with bushes of rosemary, juniper, lavender, thyme, myrtle and sage.

Enjoy the the day in this natural beauty in companionship of your licensed English speaking guide and private sailing boat.

Sail back to Zadar, overnight at Success Apartments

Day 4

VISIT PAG ISLAND

For utter escapism on an island that's more Martian than Mediterranean

Pag is the surprise of Croatia. The sense of being somewhere utterly unique is palpable as soon as you drive into its bare, pale-pink hills, a landscape as silent and magical as any desert. Pag, linked to the mainland by a bridge 70km north of Zadar, It provides a distinctly different autumn getaway in Dalmatia. During summer Pag Town, the pocket-sized Renaissance capital built on salt and lace, is clogged with coach-tours; Zrće beach is a Croat Ibiza.

Pag is famous for its two extremes. First and foremost, the island is renowned for the production of Paški sir, a pricey-but-delicious cheese churned from the milk of sheep local to the spot. Now the the island next to the Zadar mainland is a hotspot for European youngsters looking to get their dance rave on alongside the crystal clear beachfronts.

But there’s a lot more to do in Pag than eat cheese and throw shapes. Learn about the island’s rich embroidery history at the Page Lace Museum in the city centre, visit the unspoilt village of Zubovići, or mount one of the trusty steeds local here and gallivant across the bay side Novalja city on horseback.Cruising through Ever wondered where modern beach nudism originated? Where else but in the wonderfully named North Adriatic Island of Rab?!

Legend has it that Great Britain’s King Edward VIII vacationed on the island in 1936 with his then-secret lover Mrs Wallis Simpson, and forced the local authorities to pass a law granting them access to swim on Kandarola beach in the nude.

But there’s more to Rab than no-knickers fun. Head into the eponymous isle capital to see one of Croatia’s most unrivaled heritage sites, featuring bell-towers, forts and castles all from the medieval era.

Day 5 & 6

VIS ISLAND

GO OFFLINE……..

For Robinson Crusoe-isolation with the Michelin star food options!!

Vis has been voted as the “Island of the year for 2016” by Conde Naste.

Vis has all the allure of a Bond-villain hideout. Yet Croatia's most distant island, washed by the cleanest seas in the Mediterranean.

We leave you to enjoy this island and soak in the utter contentment of time freezing in this beautiful island. There are many local restaurants where you can feast with whatever’s freshest, all glugged down with local wine

However, if you would like to indulge yourself in the fine options try Villa Kaliopa or Doručak kod Tihane in the village of Kut, and Jastožera in Komiža.

In this postcard pretty island, there a host of adventure activities, we could help you in booking those if you would like

Day 7

Transfer to Dubrovnik

George Bernard Shaw was enchanted by this beautiful city, about which he said “those who seek paradise on Earth should come to Dubrovnik”, as well as, famously, describing it as “the pearl of the Adriatic”. It really is a stunning city with an amazing Old Town, which became a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1979.

Regardless of whether you are visiting Dubrovnik for the first time or the hundredth, the sense of awe never fails to descend when you set eyes on the beauty of the old town. Indeed; it’s hard to imagine anyone becoming jaded by the city’s marble streets, baroque buildings and the endless shimmer of the Adriatic, or failing to be inspired by a walk along the ancient city walls that have protected a civilised, sophisticated republic for centuries.

As you descend down the stone steps of the fortification you will see the old Harbor Front of the city overlooking the Adriatic and the islands off the coast. As you continue, you will come to Dubrovnik’s Main Square of the Loggia Loza. It is situated at the eastern extremity of the Stradun, which runs through the walled city from East to West. The square is located in the heart of Dubrovnik, and is surrounded by its most important buildings.

You may visit the Church of St. Blaise with its distinctive baroque facade. Next door, you may step into the Rector’s Palace.

Insider Information

Three towns in Croatia are famous for their traditional lace: Pag, Lepoglava in northern Croatia, and Hvar. Each type of lace has its own look, but lacemaking in all three locations has been inscribed on UNESCO’s Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. Pag needlepoint lace, or paska cipka, is perhaps the most well known of the three. It typically follows an intricate, circular pattern. Today, this centuries-old art is passed down by expert lacemakers who teach year-long courses. Lace is sold at many specialty shops and markets, but beware vendors who sell several identical lace pieces – these are likely manufactured. Handmade lace is incredibly intricate, and each piece is unique.

Drink your way down Tkalčićeva The fairytale street of Tkalčićeva, which snakes up from focal Jelačić trg, was once the flowing stream of Medveščak. The little sidestreets leading off it, Splavnica (from splav, raft) and Krvavi most ('Bloody Bridge'), link to its watery origins and colourful past as the flashpoint in local disputes over the centuries. For two decades, this atmospheric thoroughfare has provided Zagreb with its prime bar crawl, a constant current of revellers moving from spot to spot. Venues move in and out of fashion, but you're pretty much guaranteed a good time at the Funk Club, a regular café by day, a lively DJ basement by night. The buzz around the horseshoe bar, as thumping beats come up from the cellar, is as sassy as anywhere on Tkalčićeva. The more recently opened Rakhia Bar specialises inrakija grappas, as well as sought-after Velebitsko beer and craft brews from the Visibaba range.

While on holidays in Croatia, no matter where you are, you’ll find something to treat your taste buds. When in Dalmatia, make sure you order any fresh fish that you see on offer. Trust us, a Dalmatian chef knows how to grill fish to perfection, so it’s something well worth sampling. A unique Croatian dish you’ll want to try is a black risotto made from cuttlefish called crni rižot. If you are not a fan of seafood, be sure to order pašticada, a traditional beef dish, which is marinated for 24 hours in garlic, wine and herbs. Pašticada has a rich dark sauce and is served with homemade gnocchi, and best enjoyed with a glass of the Dalmatian Plavac Mali red wine. Other must-try foods are octopus salad, krafne and burek.. ..just don’t blame me for your expanding waistline. Local tip: don’t let the abundance of pizza ovens seduce you! Although the pizza in Croatia is indeed fantastic, you also need to be on the lookout for small, often family-run local restaurants called konobas.

Over the last few years Dubrovnik's finest grape juice for grown-ups, Malvasia (not to be confused with Malvasija from the rest of Croatia) has started to appear on restaurant menus. Nab this deliciously dry white when you can, or head out into the Konavle vineyards to seek it out yourself.
