The sensational Croatian coast has long been known for its sun and beaches.Yet there is also another Croatia, less discovered and just as breathtaking. With over 1,000 islands to explore, the “Other Croatia” is one of Europe’s most outstanding adventure stages. This self-guided hiking tour starts with an overnight in beautiful Dubrovnik, the Pearl of the Adriatic, and then focuses on two islands, Hvar and Brač. After arriving in Dubrovnik, you'll explore the city at your own pace, including a hike to the top of Srd Mountain for a spectacular view of the Old Town.
This self-guided bicycle tour starts in Split, the city founded by Roman Emperor Diocletian dating back to 300 A.D. This lovely antiquity is coupled with modern conveniences, as there is an international airport just 25 kilometers (less than 16 miles) from Split’s town center. You’ll then visit Brač Island, Croatia’s third largest and the highest island in the Adriatic Sea.
