Why should you travel to Croatia with us?

Croatia turns daydreams into captivating realities with its idyllic beach coves, sensational gastronomy, and eye-opening heritage.

Head inland, however, and northern Croatia gives way to stunning landscapes, jagged peaks and rolling hills. We’ll take you oyster shucking and wine tasting at our favorite island spots, weaving between red-roofed Hvar and sun-drenched Korčula.

Top Locations in Croatia

If we were asked to choose our top three places in Croatia, we’d go for these.
Dubrovnik, Croatia

Dubrovnik

Glitz and glam in the walled, UNESCO-inscribed city.

Arguably the most breathtaking city of the Adriatic Sea, Dubrovnik is the heart and soul of Croatia. Scattered with red-tiled roofs, cobbled passageways, and luxurious villas, it’s easy to lose yourself in the magical atmosphere here. Wander the city at your own pace before embarking on Dubrovnik’s iconic 2km walk of the city walls at sunset. If you’re a budding Game of Thrones fan like us, we’ll hook you up with some savvy guides who helped scout for the on-set locations to show you the iconic sights that made TV like Srd Hiil, Pile Gate, and Blackwater Bay.

Oyster shucking in Croatia

Korčula

Learn how to shuck oysters like a local.

We like to think of Korčula as Dubrovnik’s little twin sister, and with over 2,000 years of history on the island, there’s no time to waste stepping foot upon the sandy shores here. We’ll begin with a private walking tour of Marco Polo’s birthplace and the alleged origin of the Silk Road, before falling back into luxury at Lešic Dimitri Palace. Spend your days in the company of a private skipper as you cruise around secluded bays, visit local wineries and perfect the art of oyster shucking at Ston Oyster Farm.

Hvar in Croatia

Hvar

Pine forests, charming walkways and trendy beach bars.

Famed for its natural beauty, rich history, and aromatic lavender fields, Hvar is a firm Croatian favorite of ours. First, we’ll lead you on a walking tour of Stari Grad (Old Town) on the northern side of the island – one of the oldest towns in Europe – to discover incredible gothic palaces, charming churches and chapels and of course the best restaurants on the island. Then for a breath of fresh air, we’ll take you to the hilltop villages of Humac and Vrisnik, where the scent of rosemary and lavender will leave you pining for days.
