What You’ll Love...

The Accommodation – From a historic hotel in Zagreb to a seaside resort in Dubrovnik

Unwind in true luxury in Zagreb, staying at the glamorous Esplanade Zagreb Hotel – one of the city’s most iconic hotels, originally opened in 1925. Combining art deco and contemporary flair, the hotel offers some of the most luxurious accommodation in the city, all just steps away from the enchanting streets of Zagreb.

Be surrounded by refined beauty at Hotel Bastion, a boutique property positioned in the heart of Zadar and part of Relais & Châteaux’s exclusive collection of luxury hotels. Built on the remains of a 13th-century medieval fort and effortlessly blending the cultural heritage of the city with luxe facilities, Hotel Bastion will be your home away from home in historic Zadar.

Wake up to stunning vistas over the glistening waters of the Adriatic from your private balcony at Hotel Ariston, an ultra-modern oasis boasting unparalleled views over the coast and beyond over Dubrovnik.

The Sights – Explore some of the most sought-after destinations in the country

With scenery including lush emerald-green forest, crystalline waterfalls and walled medieval towns overlooking the waters of the Adriatic, this tour is a true feast for the eyes.

Your first stop is the capital of Croatia, Zagreb. With its charming medieval look and incredible architecture dating back to the 19th-century Austro-Hungarian empire, Zagreb is a true gem. Embark on a guided tour through the old town, where you will encounter impressive buildings, gothic churches and colourfully-tiled roofs. The picturesque streets of Zagreb brim with shops and cafés, where you can sit back and enjoy the atmosphere, just as the locals do.

An impressive sight for the eyes, Plitvice Lakes National Park is a majestic, 295 sq km forest reserve boasting 16 emerald green terraced lakes, joined by waterfalls and canyons, creating a unique landscape of exceptional beauty. The oldest and largest national park in Croatia, Plitvice was added to the UNESCO World Heritage register in 1979 and is home to astonishing flora and fauna, including more than 50 species of mammals and more than 157 bird species. Stroll along the wooden walkways and take in this spectacular sight at your own leisure.

Discover three of Croatia’s most historic towns: Šibenik, Trogir, and Split. The oldest Croatian town on the Adriatic, Šibenik is blessed with a rich heritage and a myriad of historical monuments. A dreamy island-town connected to the mainland by a series of bridges, Trogir seamlessly blends different styles and influences into a beautiful, narrow-lined historic town. Split is one of Croatia’s most famous cities: with the UNESCO World Heritage-listed, Roman-era Diocletian’s Palace at its heart, the country’s second-largest city boasts incredible history married with a beautiful coastal setting.

Uncover the hidden treasures behind the historic 16th-century city walls of Dubrovnik, on Croatia’s southern coast. Explore the ‘Pearl of the Adriatic’ with a walking tour of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Old Town, then enjoy some time at your leisure to explore this incredible city.
