For those looking for an active weekend there is a 2-island all day cruise, whitewater rafting, scooter or car rental to explore the coast, and even beach front bars and clubs all to keep you having fun in the Croatian sun! 

 

Itinerary

Day 1 Depart Florence/Rome via luxury coach w/DVD movies for overnight ride to Split. Stops for dinner/bathroom along the way.

*Fly-in package - arrival on your own with check in from 3pm available (you will be sent exact instructions on how to arrive). 

Day 2 Arrive in Split, the famous coastal town of Croatia, at approx. 9am. After arrival we’ll drop bags at our accommodations, have a bit of time to freshen up and head out to explore the center of historic Split. This city walk of Split’s old town will include sights such as Diocletian’s Palace, the palace cellar, fish market, several Game of Thrones filming locations, etc. For those that pre-book white water rafting it will depart after our morning arrival (time TBA). And for those that just want to enjoy Split on their own, it’s an ideal city to wander and explore, enjoy the many cafes on the beautiful Croatian boardwalk (the Riva), go to the popular Croatian market in the center of Split, and spend the afternoon on lively Bacvice Beach (less than 10 minutes walking from the old town). At night there will be an amazing group dinner offered at a traditional Croatian restaurant located just off the pedestrian promenade featuring local specialties of appetizers, main courses plus water, beer & wine! After dinner we head out for the beachfront nightlife at the bars/clubs lining the water of Bacvice Beach! 

Day 3 From 8am we have the legendary, all day, two-island boat cruise along the famous Dalmatian Coast, Blue Lagoon, islands and former Venetian city of Trogir. This is an optional activity and it includes stops in Bol, on the island of Brac and later to the island of Solta or Trogir. A fish, meat or vegetarian lunch and wine (during the meal) is included. There will be time for swimming and the trip is a full day activity. For those that want to be independent of the group there are optional day trips to islands like Hvar or Korcula, take a bus to the southern coastal city of Dubrovnik or the lakes district of Plitvice (all of these you can do on your own). Another option for the day from Split can be to rent a scooter or car and cruise around the coastline along the waters of the Adriatic Sea. Free night in Split and optional pub crawl for those interested in having a fun Saturday night in the city. 

Day 4 Early morning check out and approx. 8am departure to the famous national park of Krka which is known for its amazing waterfalls where it’s possible to swim. We’ll have several hours to enjoy the park for swimming or hiking and our bus will depart back to Italy for a late arrival Sunday night. 

**Day 5 Easter and long holiday weekends (where indicated) also include an extra night with Day 5 following Day 4’s itinerary with departure and visit to Krka Waterfalls park (typically this extra day falls on a Monday).

*Fly-In package departure on your own.

The float takes about 3-4 hours and you will be in rafting between class 2 and 3 rapids. Class 2 and 3 are very safe classifications so the float is an exciting yet leisurely float. Each boat has a captain or skipper that speaks English. The company provides all the equipment necessary including wet suits, water shoes, helmets and life vests.

- Croatian Coast & Island Boat cruise. Price - 45 Euro. We start at UNESCO protected town of Trogir (little Venice) and there embark the boat for cruise to Veli Drvenik (Blue Lagoon), then we continue to the island Solta for a beach and town break, and then to Ciovo Island for our BBQ lunch and beach break. Arrive back to Trogir at approx. 5:30pm to have around an hour for sightseeing (with arrival back to Split at approx. 7:30pm).  It's an incredible day to enjoy the beauty of the Dalmatian Coast and the islands, swim, and have some fun in the sun enjoying some drinks and relaxing.
