    Itinerary

    Day 1

    WELCOME TO SPLIT!

    We get things started in Croatia’s second largest city – Split. A buzzing, exuberant portal city perfectly set between dramatic coastal mountains and the turquoise waters of the Adriatic. Upon arrival, we’ll pick you up from the airport and take you back to our centrally located hotel. Ease your way in by wandering the marble streets of split Old Town (be sure to visit Diocletian’s Palace) and then meet the rest of your group at our welcome dinner where you’ll enjoy some delicious Dalmatian cuisine.

    Day 2

    KRKA NATIONAL PARK

    Today we take a day trip to the majestical Krka National Park – a stunning stretch of nature filled with beautiful waterfalls, deep gorges, fast flowing rivers and 850 different plant species. We’ll take a private 1.5 hr bus ride to get there and then explore the huge park through a combination of boat ride and hiking some of its picturesque trails. The highlight will be arriving at the Skradinski Buk Falls, a breathtaking collection of 17 cascading waterfalls landing into emerald green waters full of tropical fish. This is a perfect day in nature!

    Day 3

    HVAR + WINE

    We’re taking things up a notch as we leave Split and head to the lively island of Hvar (officially Croatia’s sunniest spot) where we’ll spend the next 2 days. We’ll arrive in the morning – via catamaran – and then you have some free time to yourself. You could chill by the hotel swimming pool, hit up one of the many beach bars, or go take in the views from the imposing Trdva Fortress. Late afternoon we’ll regroup and head to Hvar’s rustic interior to visit the family run Hora vineyard for a spot of wine tasting and some earthy Peka dinner.

    Day 4

    PAKLENI ISLANDS

    Today is an action packed day of sun, sea and good vibes as we cruise around on our private speedboat visiting some of Hvar’s neighbouring islands. We’ll go see the natural phenomena of the Blue Cave; stop off for lunch in the gorgeous Komozi Town on the breathtaking Vis Island; sail through the sun-drenched Pakleni Islands; and find some quiet swimming holes along the way. This is exactly what summer in Croatia is all about!

    Day 5

    DUBROVNIK + CITY WALLS

    It’s time to make our way to the final location of the trip – and we definitely saved the best for last – as today we travel to the stunning city of Dubrovnik. Affectionately known as the ‘pearl of the Adriatic’, it is a place steeped in history and beauty in equal measure. Filled with baroque style buildings & limestone streets, surrounded by shimmering sea and enclosed with massive stone city walls – it’s a delightful place to experience. We take a 4 hr catamaran trip to get to Dubrovnik and then spend the afternoon on a walking tour before catching sunset from the city walls.

    Day 6

    FREE DAY

    A full day in Dubrovnik to follow your own personal interests. You could choose to simply chill by the hotel pool with its striking views over Lapad bay. Or why not head to one of the many nearby beaches for a dip in those gorgeous crystal clear waters (and watch the local cliff-jumpers in action)! For a completely different side of Dubrovnik you could also take the cable car up Srd mountain or you could even try your hand at Croatian cuisine with a local cooking class. Before the trip we’ll share with you all our favourite hang-outs.

    Day 7

    KAYAKING + DINNER

    This morning we’re heading out on kayak and making our way to a small island called Lokrum, located about 600m from Dubrovnik. While there we’ll explore the pretty little island which boasts a Benedictine monastery, botanical gardens, a Napoleonic-era fort and is a sanctuary where peacocks and other wildlife roam free. It’s also a key location for Game of Thrones (if that’s your thing)! In the evening we’ve organised a special dinner back in Dubrovnik’s Old Town for one final meal together before we say our goodbyes.

    Day 8

    UNTIL NEXT TIME

    Our Croatia trip has now come to an end and sadly it’s time to go. But what an absolute blast it’s been. We’ve hit the very best spots of the Dalmatian Coast and had a lot of fun along the way. You’ve visited lush national parks, island-hopped your way around the Adriatic, sailed on private speedboats, kayaked, snorkelled, visited centuries old cities, drank wine in rural vineyards and eaten the most delicious of Mediterranean food. All done with an awesome group of new friends you’ve created epic travel memories with. See you next time!  

    Hotels

    We know that accommodation is important to you and it’s important to us too. We’ve therefore carefully hand-picked a selection of our favourite 3 & 4-star hotels for this itinerary. These are the hotels we typically use.

    “Head and Shoulders Above the Rest”

    Having been on numerous group holidays with more than 5 different companies, my standards are high and I can honestly say that Other Way Round is head and shoulders above all of them.

    “Not Mass Produced or Touristy”

    What I loved about this trip was that it didn’t feel mass produced and touristy. There was a sense of originality to it and uniqueness about the trip and the itinerary.

    “Completely Hassle Free”

    I usually travel DIY, where I arrange and book everything myself, and it was such a welcome change to have all that time and stress of booking the different elements of the trip taken away from me.

    “Trip of a Lifetime”

    I will never forget this trip. Not only because of the country itself, but because of the experience that Other Way Round gave me and the other group members. It was a trip of a lifetime and you will be missing out if you don’t just book it!

    Important Notes

    SPECIAL NOTE

    The hotels we’ve selected for this itinerary are a little outside of the main centres (Split & Hvar are walking distance, Dubrovnik requires a short bus ride/taxi).

    This allows us to get much better hotels and we believe it’s worth the trade-off.

    Am I a good fit for an OWR trip?

    We know it’s important to you to choose the right tour company for you.

    And equally, for us, it’s super important that we get the right people joining our trips (people who are likely to get the most out of it).

    We’d therefore appreciate if you could please read the following page carefully before signing up: OWR Trip Style

    Are international flights included?

    No.

    International flights are not included in the price of our tours. This is something you would book yourself seperately.

    Which airports should I fly into?

    Our trip starts in Split (SPU) and ends in Dubrovnik (DBV). You should organise your flights accordingly.

    Ideally you should arrive at the hotel by 6pm on the first day. This is when we have our welcome meeting and afterwards go for dinner (although if you arrive later it’s fine to catch up).

    You can leave at any time on the last day. There are no activities scheduled for that day.

    If you need help researching flights, contact us at [email protected] or fill out the contact form on this page.

    Are airport transfers included?

    Yes, they are included at both the start and end of every trip.

    Notes

    • We only do transfers between airports and our selected hotels. No other locations.
    • For those tagging on extra days, we will endeavour to include transfers up to 2 days outside of official tour dates.

    Can I book a private room?

    Yes.

    Our standard prices are based on sharing a twin hotel room with one other person of the same gender.

    However, if you prefer a private then you can select this option for £490 / $630 extra.

    Just let us know at the time of booking.

    (Note – we have limited availability of private rooms, these will be allocated on a first come, first served basis).

    Can I book pre and/or post accommodation?

    Yes, we can book you in for extra days at either our arrival hotel or departure hotel.

    This is up to a maximum of 2 days on either side. If for longer, we suggest you book directly with the hotel.

    Contact us at [email protected] for rates.

    I’m traveling solo, will I be the only one?

    No.

    Our trips are specifically designed for solo travelers so you will fit in perfectly.

    Some people may bring a friend but the majority will always be traveling solo.

    How do I book?

    You contact us either via the contact form on this site or by emailing us at [email protected].

    You confirm your name, your age, which country you are based in and you tell us the destination and dates you would like to join.

    We then send you an electronic invoice to collect your deposit payment.

    To reserve a spot you pay a £200 / $250 deposit and then the remaining balance must be paid by 70 days before the trip.

    If your booking is within 70 days, then you must pay the full balance at that point.

    Is the deposit refundable?

    No, the deposit is non-refundable.

    However, if you can no longer make the trip you can transfer that deposit onto any other future trip.

    Do you have payment plans?

    Yes.

    We can either split your balance into even monthly payments, or we can set it up so you can pay any smaller amounts as and when you like.

    Just let us know at the time of booking.

    Visas, vaccinations & packing lists?

    Two months before your trip you will receive a comprehensive pre-trip pack which tells you everything you need to get prepared for the trip (including info on visas, vaccinations & packing lists).

    In general, most of our guests don’t need visas to come to Croatia.

    Do you cater for special dietary requirements?

    Yes.

    We cater for vegetarian, vegan, gluten free and other dietary requirements. We will always make sure there are options available to you in the restaurants we visit.

    Please be aware though that there will not likely be the same range of options as you have available in your home country.

    Will I get to meet other members of the group before the trip?

    Yes.

    In the week before the trip we will create a WhatsApp group with all the people joining the trip. This is a great opportunity to connect ahead of the trip.

    Are the hotels listed on the website the actual hotels you use?

    Generally yes, it will be these hotels.

    From time to time we may need to change a specific hotel if for example it’s not available on those given dates. But in such situations, we will always replace with another hotel at the same quality.

    What’s the cancellation policy?

    The £200/$250 deposit is non-refundable. However, if you need to cancel at any point, you can put this towards any future trip you book with us (in any location).

    The rest of the balance is refundable up until 70 days before the trip. From that point we have to start committing funds to local suppliers and so:-

    > 30-70 days before trip – 50% refund

    > 0–30 days before trip – 0% refund

    But, we also recommend that you take out travel insurance to cover you for any unexpected last-minute cancellation.
