Croatia is blessed with a wealth of natural riches – a fabulous Mediterranean shoreline dotted with islands and idyllic beaches, beautiful mountainous country with far-reaching vistas, and charming old towns, with histories dating back millennia. This really is Europe at its most unspoiled. There are also plenty of gorgeous hotels, sophisticated restaurants and incredible cultural sights with ancient ruins and some wonderful old-world charm.
This two-week tour to discover the delights of Croatia (and a little bit of Slovenia) will start and finish in Slovenia’s capital city, Ljubljana. You can either drive to Ljubljana, or fly and hire a car.

Discover the Istria Peninsula, then drive down the beautiful Adriatic coastline heading down to Zadar then Split. Spend a couple of nights on the stylish island of Hvar before continuing onto stunning Dubrovnik. Wind your way north via the incredible lakes at Plitvice National Park and then Croatia’s capital, Zagreb. Visit lovely Varazdin and cross back into Slovenia. Gentle in pace, this trip allows you to discover some of Europe’s prettiest towns and cities, stunning scenery and cultural sights.
