Croatia Private Journey

Hiking, Biking, and Optional Sea Kayaking along the Dalmatian Coast

Overview

Experience the glorious Dalmatian Coast, with its legendary islands set in the azure Adriatic Sea, fascinating walled cities filled with the echoes of the Venetian Empire, delightful fresh seafood, and a burgeoning wine scene. We’ve created a wonderful Private Journey—with a fantastic array of options—that takes you through the best of this enchanting realm. With your private guide, explore the isle of Hvar, with its charming white-stone towns, hike through villages that seem lost in time, and sea kayak the inviting turquoise waters. On the hilly Peljesac Peninsula, you’ll hike the defensive ramparts of medieval Ston, taste wines at an award-winning winery specializing in traditional winemaking techniques, sample oysters on a secluded island, and hike to hillside monasteries for splendid views of the sea. Your grand finale is the beautiful city of Dubrovnik, where a bike ride in the surrounding countryside reveals a stunning landscape of lush vineyards, olive groves, and tiny stone villages. Our accommodations are in lovely hotels just steps from the water. We’ve wrapped up all the beauty of the Dalmatian Coast in a spectacular—and fun—adventure.
