Croatia tours are what one should look for if one’s vacation itinerary includes sailing. This European country offers breathtaking waters of the Mediterranean, rich historical places, and great architecture. The place is alive with vibrant culture and hospitable locals. Warm climate and the cool blue waters of the Adriatic make Croatia a perfect destination for summer vacation.

The endless coastline and unspoilt waters, thriving with marine life, welcome the visitors of Croatia tours. Friendly locals with strong traditions have kept the essence of their culture intact even while opening their hearts and islands for the global tourists. Croatia tours offer the tourists splendid opportunity to explore its islands and coves and swim in the bays. The Adriatic boasts of more than 1000 islands of which many are uninhabited. Dubrovnik is the walled city on the sea which Bernard Shaw described as ‘Heaven on Earth’. Many Croatia tours start from this point and take the tourists on board the yachts for island hopping.

The Elaphite island of Croatia is enchanting with lush woods that add to the beauty of the deep blue waters of the Adriatic. The tourists can visit the loveliest islands of the Elafiti archipelago – Kolocepo, Lopud and Sipan – just off the coast of Dubrovnik. The islands provide ample opportunity for the sea lovers to cruise around the coves, hidden bays and swim or snorkel in the crystal clear waters.

Visitors can spend their mornings rowing on the clear water of the Adriatic Sea. From the sea kayaking tour, they can enjoy the wonderful Dubrovnik city walls and get a swim in secluded caves inside bays of the coast. Croatia tours also provide an opportunity to cruise to the Green Islands which, as the name denotes, is full of gardens and orange and lemon orchards.
