On the sparkling east shore of the Adriatic Sea lie the emerald islands of the Dalmatian Archipelago. Over 1,000 islands, islets and reefs protect the mainland of Croatia and provide an idyllic setting for exploration, relaxation and adventure. Habitation ranges from the tiniest villages hidden in secluded coves, to the Adriatic jewels of Hvar, Korcula and Split. On this journey we’ll introduce you to the secret life of Dalmatia: A life of sun, song, private beaches, quiet bike rides, walks, and friendly locals with an endearing penchant for creating superb wine and equally delicious cuisine. We will visit medieval cities like Dubrovnik and Kotor, behind whose massive ramparts you’ll find an ancient world of striking beauty and fascinating history, augmented with a rousing culinary and music scene.
