Learning a Few Croatian Words or Phrases will go a Long Way

Picking up new languages is tricky so you definitely don’t need to worry about mastering full conversational Croatian before your getaway. You might be surprised at how far a few basic words and phrases will get you, and you might even make someone’s day by making the effort to say thank you or hello in Croatian. Dobar Dan! (That’s “good day”)

You’ll Discover Amazing Cuisine on your Croatia Island Hopping Adventure

Croatians LOVE food and whether you’re a committed foodie or just eager to tuck into some delicious food to fuel your adventures, you can expect to find menus bursting with varied dishes made from locally sourced, fresh, and flavourful ingredients. Look forward to fresh seafood, rice, and sweet pastries, alongside dishes which celebrate locally sourced olive oil and fragrant herbs. Oh, and garlic! There’s always plenty of garlic!

The Game of Thrones Connection is the Real Deal

Game of Thrones is such a phenomenon and during your trip, you’ll have the chance to see plenty of recognisable locations from the series including Daenerys’ iconic Throne Room, the Red Keep, and the stairs to the Great Sept of Baelor. Great selfie opportunities, just saying.

Don’t Necessarily Expect Soft Sandy Beaches on your Sailing Trip

Most Croatian beaches are rocky, but that doesn’t stop them from being seriously stunning. In fact, what they lack in soft sand they more than make up for in gorgeous secluded coves, prime sunbathing positions, and perfect swimming spots. That said, we’ll also swing by a few sandy stretches of coastline, including Europe’s most famous beach.

The Nightlife is Lit

We’re big believers in balance and alongside trips to some seriously dreamy island paradise locations, we’ve planned plenty of opportunities for you to let your hair down and party until the sun comes up.
