Caves and waterfalls abound in Plitvice Lakes National Park, but it’s the 16 interlinked lakes flowing between Mala Kapela Mountain and Pljesevica Mountain that draw the crowds. Renowned for their distinctive colours, the lakes can appear azure, green, grey or blue depending on the minerals in the water and the angle of the light. Then experience the elegance and old-world charm of Croatia on a small ship adventure cruise. An idyllic island escape in the middle of Europe, Croatia offers up impressive coastlines, meandering rivers, and the sparkling waters of the Adriatic to swim in. Aboard the M/S Peregrine Dalmatia, specifically built to sail the Dalmatian Coast, cast off from the historic city of Split and cruise to islands both chic and ancient. Paddle up the rivers of Krka National Park to dip into waterfalls, then discover the soul of Croatia – Split. Navigate the Adriatic to the Renaissance facades and jagged limestone cliffs of Hvar, then board wooden boats and sail up the River Neretva to Bosnia and Herzegovina, stopping in Mostar, a town situated in a beautiful valley in the high mountains. Explore the romantic and evocative Old Town of Korcula and enjoy tastings at a local winery, then dock in stunning Dubrovnik. Highlights/r/n
  • Arrive in style! Your airport arrival transfer in Venice is by private water taxi. Glide into the centre of Venice by boat to gain an appropriate sense of perspective of this unique city from the water… don’t forget to keep your camera handy!
  • Enter the fantastical underground world of the Postojna Caves – one of the longest karst caverns in the world – home to strange rock formations and creatures like an eye-less salamander
  • Ride the cable car up Mt Vogel for exceptional views over the astonishingly beautiful Lake Bohinj and the foothills of the mighty Alps
  • Soak up the vibrancy of Zadar and experience the deep Dalmatian heritage visible at every step – contrast the Roman ruins and medieval city walls with the modern sea organ and sun dial
  • Truffles are a glamourous-sounding local produce in Istria. Enjoy a truffle tasting combined with local speciality dishes such as fuži (Istrian pasta), fritaja (Croatian omelette) or our producer’s somewhat exotic truffle ice cream! Your sommelier will pair your tasting with suitable Istrian wines to try.
  • Board a traditional vessel and sail up along the spectacular Neretva River, inland from Opuzen.
  • The trip includes an excursion to Krka National Park, where you’ll get a chance to swim in secluded pools and beneath waterfalls.
  • If you’re worried about long cruise days, this itinerary is a good choice. There are plenty of excursions, short walks and port stops, and the distance between islands is short.
  • While large cruise liners have to moor out at sea and commute into shore via tender, we drop anchor in the middle of port towns like Hvar or Korcula. You can hop on or off the boat as you please.
  • There’s nothing like diving into the aquamarine waters of the Dalmatian Coast. Weather permitting, our captain will be stopping the ship for regular swim breaks during the trip.
  • This itinerary includes a special detour to Mostar, in Boznia and Herzegovina. It’s not a stop featured on many Croatian coastal tours. You’ll see the town’s iconic bridge and have the chance to chat with local craftsmen and metalworkers.
