Set on a small peninsula, Zadar’s old town has roman ruins, medieval churches, cosmopolitan cafes and quality museums. Today we explore Zadar’s ancient attractions on a guided sightseeing tour, including the Roman Forum and Croatia’s oldest university. Hear wave-powered music from the Sea Organ and see the ‘Pozdrav Suncu’ – a psychedelic sidewalk light show. Both are located at the end of the peninsula where visitors gather to watch what is regularly described as the world’s most beautiful sunset.

Day 3

Day at leisure in Biograd na Moru

Spend a day at leisure to enjoy the hotels facilities and the area of Biograd na Moru. Relax at the beach on the Adriatic coast or stroll along the beautiful promenade.

Day 4

Explore Krka National Park

The Krka National Park lies about 10km inland from Sibenik. There may be a chance to stop an explore this medieval Old Town, with its labyrinth of steep backstreets and alleys. It has an impressive Gothic and Renaissance style 15th century of St Jacob. Krka National Park is a magical place full of waterfalls, gorges and monasteries. We discover the Park and see magnificent waterfalls, including the famous Skradinski Buk Falls, which is one of Croatia’s most famous sights. We also see the Krka River gushing through deep canyons towards the sea. This park is truly a haven of natural beauty.

Day 5

Visit Split and Trogir

Today we embark on a full day excursion to Split and Trogir. During the guided tour, see famous sights such as Peristyle Square, Procurativa, Split’s waterfront and many more. Visit the Diocletian’s Palace which is one of the most imposing Roman ruins in existence and where you will probably spend most of your time while in Split. After the tour, spend some free time in Split before continuing to Trogir. The city is known as the ‘Beauty of Stone’ and is carefully protected to secure the rich cultural heritage. Enjoy a guided tour through the old town before exploring the city on your own

Day 6

Excursion to Kornati National Park

This morning we head to the port, for a boat trip excursion to the Kornati Islands. The islands are the densest archipelago in the Mediterranean. The islands cover an area of around 320 square kilometres. Enjoy fantastic views of this natural beauty; see numerous coves and crystal clear blue waters. Due to the karstic terrain, the islands are riddled with cracks, caves, grottoes and rugged cliffs. Startling rock formations, both eerie and wonderful, stand out against the deep-blue Adriatic. Lunch is included today before an afternoon at leisure.

Day 7

Return to the UK

The time has come to say goodbye to this wonderful destination and begin your homeward journey.

Additional Idea

Plitvice Lakes National Park

Another wonderful excursion is to one of Croatia’s best known national parks. This is a wonderful landscape of 16 crystalline lakes that tumble into each other via a series of waterfalls and cascades. There’s a free network of electric boats and a ‘panoramic train’ (a road train) to help you explore the park. There’s also an option of a two or four-hour guided tour.
