Croatia / Southern Dalmatia

Islandhopping and multi-Adventure cruise

This Multi-Adventure Cruise in South Dalmatia is particularly well-suited for families. It combines the popular bathing cruise concept of the ‘Blue Tour’ with a variety of activities. Decide each day anew whether you would like to go on a bike trip or on a hiking tour, go rafting or rather stroll leisurely through the unique small harbor towns of the Adriatic - or simply spend the day relaxing on board. This is indeed a pleasant way of exploring southern Dalmatia, possibly Croatia’s most attractive landscape. Through little stories and legends and through the country’s cultural treasures - most of which are protected by UNESCO’s World Heritage program - we get in touch with Croatia’s eventful history. This interesting tour is rounded off by the wonderful opportunity of jumping directly off the ship into the sea for a swim.

    1. Trogir - Island of Vis
    Individual arrival to Trogir. After check in on the motor yacht (at around 2:30 pm) the first cruise starts around 3 pm from Trogir to the Island of Vis. On the way we have the opportunity to take a refreshing swim from the boat. The first night is spent on the Island of Vis.

     

    2. Island of Vis - Island of Hvar (10 km)
    In the morning we can take part on an adventurous bike tour which takes us past the old military tunnels which crisscross the island, on our way to the fortress of St. George which played a significant role in the seafaring history of the island. Once back at the boat we cruise towards the island of Hvar and find a beautiful bay to anchor in for a long swimming break and for a peaceful night under the stars.

     

    3. Island of Hvar
    We start with a morning cruise to the capital of Hvar on Hvar Island. After arrival we take a city tour across the large Renaissance Square which is surrounded by the cathedral and many late gothic palaces. We are able to hike to the Spanish fortress that towers above the town. From here we have a fabulous view onto the city and the surrounding islands. With lunch on board, we cast off from Hvar and anchor in the Pakleni Islands for a lengthy swim stop. In the afternoon we lift the anchor and cruise to the city of Stari Grad on the island of Hvar, where we will spend the night.

     

    4. Island of Hvar - Island of Brac (13/25 km)
    In the morning we cruise to the famous ‘Golden Horn’ Beach in Bol on the island of Bra where the ship lowers its anchor for the morning. Here we can choose between a variety of activities both in the water and on land (not included in the tour price) or just enjoy the summer morning swimming and chilling on deck. During lunch on board, we cruise to the town of Jelsa on the island of Hvar where we can enjoy a bike tour along the beautiful seafront promenade through Vrboska, past the UNESCO Stari Grad Plains. Decide for yourself if you wish to do a longer or shorter version of the cycle tour. Enjoy the evening on board with a captains dinner and celebrate a successful day!

     

    5. Island of Brač
    The morning is spent on board enjoying a longer cruise to Lovreina Bay on the island of Bra. Once we have arrived, big and small islandhoppers are invited to a game of beach Olympics in the bay. In the afternoon a 1.5 hour hike along the coast brings us to Postira. Here the sunset can be enjoyed on one of the many cafes or bars.

     

    6. Island of Brač - Split
    During breakfast the boat brings us to Split, where we have the choice to either go rafting through the Cetina canyon (not included in the tour price) or to explore the wonderful Marjan forest Park in Split on foot, with an extended visit to the beach for a swim. In the afternoon we can explore the bustling city of Split. We enjoy an exciting tour through the UNESCO World Heritage protected old town. We will spend the night in the city.

     

    7. Split - Island of Šolta - Trogir (10 km)
    In the first half of the day we can cycle on the island of Šolta to Goran, a local beekeeper to participate in an interactive workshop on bees, their purpose, products and the life of a beekeeper. Goran is an expert in capturing the fascination of young and old with the enthusiasm he has for the bees which he keeps. We return to Roga where the boat waits. Lunch will be enjoyed on board during the last crossing by boat for the week as the captain charters his course back to Trogir. Along the way the anchor is dropped for an enjoyable dip in the Adria directly from the boat. In the afternoon we enjoy Trogir by taking a walk through the old town. Traditionally the last evening before disembarkation is spent cheerfully with guests, crew and guides.

     

    8. Trogir
    After breakfast disembarkation until 9 am and individual trip home or extended stay in Croatia.


    Due to organisational reasons, weather conditions or provisions issued by local authorities, the itinerary may be subject to some changes before and/or during the holiday. Issues with high and low water, as well as logistic obstacles such as officially ordered - previously not announced - repair work on locks or bridges can modify some of the daily stretches or overnight stays and may even request a transfer by bus. These decisions are only taken by the barge’s captain.

      Prinseza Diana super
      Bello dal punto di vista culturale
      Mare bello, poche spiagge, cambierei gli itinerari e mi avvicinerei più alla costa per un bagno più caldo e tranquillo e non al freddo e con le onde. Accompagnatori poco socievoli

      Bellissimo itinerario. Tanto sole, mare, visite a luoghi storici e culturali meravigliosi, e buon cibo. Se però volete pedalare un po’ di più forse questo non è l’itinerario per voi.

      generalmente non scrivo molte recensioni ma questa volta devo condividere il mio entusiasmo con voi!
      Partita da sola con mio figlio di 11 anni, posso confermare che è stata davvero una bellissima esperienza. Nessun italiano, gruppo internazionale (mio figlio fortunatamente parla inglese quindi è stata anche un'occasione per esercitare un po' la lingua!), ottima organizzazione, barca superconfortevole, buon cibo a bordo, accompagnatori disponibili. Le isole della Crozia sono molto belle ed ogni giorno c'era una cosa particolare da fare: giro in bici, trakking, bagno di notte, rafting (che consiglio vivamente).
      Ogni volta che ci fermavamo a fare il bagno, avevamo a disposizione canoe, sup, gonfiabili, palloni etc etc. nelle ore di navigazione o nei "tempi morti" i ragazzi avevano giochi e carte adatti alla loro età. Assolutamente consigliato!!! ps. da sapere: a Trogir sono convenzionati con un hotel di fronte al porto dove al vostro arrivo potete lasciare gratuitamente i bagagli se il vostro rientro è previsto nel pomeriggio.

      Una delle più belle vacanze che abbia mai fatto: il guisto mix di relax e attività... barca, mare, bicicletta, trekking, rafting: cosa si può chiedere di più?

      Per noi è stata una bellissima esperienza grazie alla buona (e non facile) organizzazione di base e grazie a qualcosa che è impossibile da prevedere: la sinergia tra I partecipanti! Esperienza da consigliare e già consigliata ai nostri amici più vicini.

      Un'avventura che ci ha portato ad esplorare la natura e la storia (anche italiana) con tutti i mezzi possibili! Abbiamo viaggiato nelle città (e attraverso il tempo!) con i piedi, nella natura con le bici, nel fiume Cetina con il gommone, nel mare Adriatico con la nave...
      Ci siamo tuffati, bagnati, schizzati, sudati.... bambini - adolescenti - adulti e anche anziani! ci siamo divertiti tutti!
      Ma nonostante la vacanza multisport... sono riuscita anche ad ingrassare un po'! :-)

      per noi è stata un' esperienza nuova ed entusiasmante, mai noiosa e molto stimolante per chi come noi ha dei figli che hanno bisogno di stare sempre in movimento e cabiare spesso attività. l esperienza in gruppo internazionale poi , arricchisce sempre il viaggio, unica pecca... troppa poca bici rispettoa come indicato nel tour,
      da ripetere!!!!
