Day 1: Split to Hvar

Split Ready to kickstart your Croatia sail trip? This morning we'll meet in Split, boarding our boat with, you guessed it, boat loads of enthusiasm. Hvar After our first stint at sea we’ll arrive in the glamorous playground of Hvar, where big shiny boats meet grand historic architecture. Once you've taken in the sites, you will dine alfresco on board, it’s a tough day in paradise. Accommodation: Sail Boat (Hvar, Croatia) Included Meals: Lunch, Dinner

Day 2: Hvar to Korčula

Hvar Korčula may sit incredibly close to the mainland of Croatia but it's an island all of its own, which means we'll be slipping into island vibes accordingly. Korčula Hidden bars, peachy sunsets & cobbled streets by the beach, our appreciation for this country will be skyrocketing. Accommodation: Sail Boat (Korcula, Croatia) Included Meals: Breakfast

Day 3: Korčula to Dubrovnik

Korčula This morning we'll wake up in beautiful Korčula but we'll then be heading off to Dubrovnik. In the words of Bernard Shaw, acclaimed socialist & playwright, "those that seek paradise on earth should seek it in Dubrovnik." You heard the man - let's do this! Dubrovnik Welcome to Paradise. Home to rugged cliffs, lashing seas, historic buildings (and a tonne of Game of Thrones references.) Today you'll have the chance to explore Dubrovnik on foot with a local guide. Tonight, head for the nightlife of the Urban District. Partying not your thing? No biggie. There are plenty of local restaurants, bars and cafes for you to check out too! Accommodation: Sail Boat (Dubrovnik, Croatia) Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch

Day 4: Dubrovnik

The city of Dubrovnik is so much more than just a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a Game of Thrones location - not that either of those claims to fame are even mildly mediocre. Visit Dubrovnik's Old Town, The Minceta Tower and Fortress Lovrijenac - otherwise known as GoT's King's Landing, entrance to the House of the Undying and The Red Keep. Or grab a kayak and view the maginificant city walls from the turquiose sea. Accommodation: Sail Boat (Dubrovnik, Croatia) Included Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

Day 5: Dubrovnik to Trstenik

Dubrovnik You think we're done sailing around Croatia? Not a chance. This morning we'll sail past the palms, cypresses, olive trees, citrus plantations and colourful reefs of the Elaphite Islands. Trstenik As the sun sets, we'll dock at the unspoiled village of Trstenik. Here we'll have the chance to support and visit a family-owned winery and of course, sample some wine too. Then it's back to the boat for an optional Captain's dinner (and a night of ship shenanigans). Accommodation: Sail Boat (Trstenik, Croatia) Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch

Day 6: Trstenik to Makarska

Trstenik After the peace and tranquillity of Trstenik, it’s time to head back to the mainland for more action. Makarska After a spot of swimming we’ll arrive in Makarska where we’ll be blessed by the beautiful Biokovo mountains and a long stretch of beach ready to be enjoyed. Accommodation: Sail Boat (Makarska, Croatia) Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch

Day 7: Makarska to Split

Makarska With one night left of the Mediterranean high life, we'll sail back to our starting point of Split. Split Now contented by our time at sea, we can relax & soak up the Roman heritage of this atmospheric city, revel in more Game of Thrones' filming locations and indulge in a final optional dinner in the heart of the historic city. Accommodation: Sail Boat (Split, Croatia) Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch

Day 8: End Split

Split There you have it, the astonishing beauty of Croatia and its cluster of islands. You probably always imagined you'd be blown away by it, but the new squad of life-long pals will be the real surprise. Included Meals: Breakfast
