Welcome to Split


To top it off, Split has a unique setting. Its dramatic coastal mountains act as the perfect backdrop to the turquoise waters of the Adriatic and help divert attention from the dozens of shabby high-rise apartment blocks that fill its suburbs. It's this thoroughly lived-in aspect of Split that means it will never be a fantasy land like Dubrovnik, but perhaps it's all the better for that.

Plitvice Lakes from Split Day Trip with Expert Guide

Begin your day with a pickup from your Split hotel, then travel by air-conditioned vehicle to Plitvice Lakes National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site around four hours away. The largest and oldest of Croatia’s national parks, Plitvice is a region of outstanding beauty, renowned for its interwoven turquoise lakes, gushing waterfalls and dense forest. On arrival, set off at a leisurely pace to explore the surrounding woodland. As you wander along the forest trails, let the tranquility wash over you, with only your guide’s commentary and the sound of wildlife stirring in the undergrowth breaking the peaceful silence. Admire the towering fir trees and the colorful wild flowers that line the pathways, and pass over quaint wooden bridges for sweeping panoramas of the azure-green lakes. While the trails are steep and your 5 km route takes in some 300 steps, it is well worth it for the excellent vantage points. Next, treat your legs to a well-earned rest with a ride across one of the lower lakes in an electric boat. As you cruise, notice how clear the lake is despite how vivid the waters appear from afar. Back on dry land, continue on foot to the higher lakes, stopping every now and then to snap postcard-perfect photos. Then, depending on your preferences, crown your hike with a panoramic tour by either bus or electric train. Finally, you’ll enjoy free time to perhaps refuel with lunch at one of the park's cafes (own expense). After around an hour, return to your vehicle and relax on the journey back to Split. Please note: See the Itinerary section below for list of hotels that offer pickup and drop-off.

Split Island and Cave Tour with Brac Island Wine Tasting

This tour has daily departures, sailing to the most extraordinary locations in Central Dalmatia. Many islands have their own natural beauty, hidden beaches, caves, impressive coastline, and scenery. Taste and experience the culture in one of the most picturesque fishing villages. With a little luck you may even see dolphins or sea turtles in their natural habitat.  Our route: Departure Split Bisevo island, Blue cave Vis island (South side), Exploring cavesRavnik island, Green cave (pass by) Vis island, Smokova bay, sandy beach  Hvar island, Hvar town (time for sightseeing) Brac island, Milna (Wine tasting) Arrival Split As we are operating on open sea, the nautical weather prognoses are sometimes unpredictable. There are some days during the year (very rare) with strong southwest wind, so it would be not possible to reach island of Bisevo and Vis. Under these sea/weather conditions the Blue Cave and Monk Seal Cave are closed as the entrance of the caves are small. In these situations we change the tour to a another route. Depending on the wind direction it can be the Pakleni islands, Hvar and Brac, lunch at blue lagoon Marinkovac and wine tasting included. Another option is Drvenik island, Vela Rina sandy beach and Krknjasi blue lagoon, lunch on island Solta at a unique location (restaurant Sampjer), wrecksnorkeling in Nejucam and of course wine tasting on island Brac. So the tours will be amazing for sure and of course for everyone there is the option to cancel the tour. We do not want disappointed guests, that's why we make this comment ''honesty is the best policy''. Hope for your understanding.
