We are thrilled to be able to present our first "Walking and Cruising” tour in Croatia.

Walking and Cruising Southern Dalmatia is an enticing combination of a gulet cruise with walks through some of the region’s most beautiful landscapes. Ancient forts, beautiful towns, great castles and churches line the trail, and our guides will use them to bring the country’s rich and turbulent history to vibrant life.

A series of highlights await. At Ston, you’ll walk atop the 5 km wall built in the 14th and 15th centuries to protect a landscape of prime agricultural land and precious salt pans in one of the Adriatic’s most important wine-growing regions. On Mljet, a network of paths and tracks will offer you an ever-changing set of vistas, taking in sea and lake, hill and valley, and a string of sites ranging from prehistory via the Romans to the Middle Ages. On Hvar, you will explore the Stari Grad Plain, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where local farmers are using the same tracks and maintaining the same field boundaries that their ancient Greek forebears laid out when they colonised the island 100 generations ago: a living archaeological landscape.

You will also experience this magnificent stretch of Croatia’s coast through its delicious local produce: a cornucopia of delights await: fresh seafood, fine wines and superb meat and cheese dishes. Travelling aboard a traditional and elegant gulet, you’ll have the pleasure of anchoring in beautiful bays and coves and picturesque harbours, the perfect way to discover the Dalmatian coast.
