The coastline boasts stunning landscapes and picturesque beaches, crystal-clear waters, and scenic islands like Hvar and Korčula included on our route. The natural beauty of places like Plitvice Lakes National Park and Krka National Park is unparalleled. Tours can include snorkelling excursions to explore the Adriatic Sea’s rich marine biodiversity.

3. Cultural Immersion & Culinary Experiences

There’s nothing quite like experiencing local customs, traditional music and dance that provides insight into Croatian heritage. Onshore excursions can include visits to museums, galleries, and local markets, for a deep dive into Croatian culture and history. Traditional Croatian dishes, such as fresh seafood, Peka, Sarma or Puljkanci with truffles. Locally produced wines can be sampled by those of an appropriate age and offer a unique culinary education.

4. Language Skills

Engaging with the crew and other locals while in port and on excursions is a great opportunity to practice basic Croatian phrases and learn about local customs.

5. Economic, Social & Community Insights

One of the great things about travelling by small cruise boat exclusive to your group, is the positive impact it has on the local economy without the negative impact that tourism is responsible for in some of the most beautiful places in the world. For example, the constant increase in holiday homes and buy to holiday let properties which pushes up house prices and reduces house availability for locals. With accommodation on board, you are welcomed by the local businesses and residents.

Further, learn about the delicate balance of driving development with cultural and environmental preservation.
