Visit the stunning Krka National Park, vibrant Split, the island city of Trogir, and Montenegro – one of Europe’s most unspoilt countries

If there is a more beautiful coastline than the glittering, island-studded waters of the Dalmatian Coast, then we have yet to hear of it. You'll discover this wonderful region of Croatia for yourself - along with neighbouring Montenegro - on this exclusive seven-night itinerary.

Spend three nights on the sweeping, sun-kissed reaches of the Markarska Riviera, and four more close to walled Dubrovnik, relaxing in comfortable hotels or exploring your surroundings on our included tours.

Your adventure begins with a visit to the UNESCO World Heritage cities of Split and Trogir, where you will marvel at the centuries of extraordinary history and architecture. You'll of course explore the delights of Dubrovnik, known as the Pearl of the Adriatic. Wander its enchanting Old Town, with cobbled-stone streets, spurting fountains, and pretty churches.

Take a trip to Croatia's outstanding Krka National Park, where crashing waterfalls tumble into deep gorges and picturesque lakes surrounded by lush forests. More jaw-dropping nature awaits on a journey south past the River Neretva delta - a wildlife paradise home to several endangered bird species - on your way to historic Mostar in Bosnia-Herzegovina.

You'll also venture to neighbouring Montenegro, one of Europe's most unspoilt countries, where you'll marvel at its pristine beaches, luxuriant pine forests, and mediaeval villages and visit the spectacular Bay of Kotor, Southern Europe's largest fjord.

You'll stay at two stylish hotels during your trip, the Four-Star Hotel Ivando on the Makarska Riviera, just steps from a white pebble beach with crystal clear waters, and at the Hotel Astarea in Mlini, which looks out over the glistening Adriatic and has two large swimming pools.
