ITINERARY:

Bok! Welcome to Croatia! Check-in to our centrally located 4-star hotel, then meet your fellow adventurers at 2PM, before we take a guided tour of Zagreb. This evening we'll break bread at an optional dinner within walking distance from the hotel. 

Our day begins very early with a stop at Plitvice Lake National Park, which offers an awe-inspiring network of 16 lakes – all connected by cascading waterfalls. From there we’ll make our way to Split to board our private yacht – the MV Avangard – then enjoy dinner onboard followed by a night-tour of the old city and optional drinks at a nearby gay-welcoming bar.

After breakfast, we depart Split for Hvar. We’ll spend the day on the jet-set island of Hvar for a guided tour and lunch followed by free time to frolic this fabulous port.

An early departure brings us to the quaint island of Biševo, where the Blue cave awaits providing the weather is in our favour (admission to this natural phenomenon is paid upon entry and costs about 10 EUR). We then continue to the island of Vis, an isolated former Yugoslav naval base that captures the Mediterranean “as it once was”. We'll all taste the exquisite traditional offerings of nearby wineries. Afterwards you can either pay to visit the remains of the Roman thermal place, hit up the city museum or simply take in the free views of the beautiful Rustic Vill on the waterfront. Tonight we overnight in the port.

This morning we depart for Korčula – the birthplace of Marco Polo – with a swim stop and lunch along the way. Upon arrival we’ll enjoy a late afternoon walking tour. Since it’s only a short walk to the yacht from anywhere in the old town, we encourage you to explore the area and its charming shops, bars and restaurants. 

An early morning departure takes us towards the world-famous town of Dubrovnik, cruising past the old city walls while enjoying a buffet lunch. We’ll dock in the new port given the large size of our vessel, then transfer into town for a guided walking tour. This will be followed by a cable car ride up Srđ Mountain where we’ll soak up the scenic views of the Old City Walls and Elaphiti Islands. Enjoy the afternoon at your leisure, with plenty of time to explore (we highly recommend walking the famous city walls, which are about 1.9km/1.2mi long and offer a fantastic perspective of the ancient town). 

After lunch, we’ll arrive at Trstenik, on the Pelješac peninsula. Even if you’ve joined us in Trstenik on a previous OUT Adventure, we’ve mixed things up with a new winery stop that includes a tour of the grounds and cellar, followed by a luscious 3-course dinner paired with five pristine Croatian wines. Tonight we overnight in this quaint and charming town.

Our last full day on the yacht, we depart Trstenik while enjoying breakfast. Our final stop will be the Island of Brač and picturesque town of Bol. Walk along the promenade or swim at one of the famous beaches in Dalmatia – Zlatni Rat (the Golden Cape). After lunch, enjoy some relaxing time on board prior to our Captain’s Farewell Dinner with entertainment. We’ll overnight in the small town of Milna or Bol depending on ferry schedules. 

This morning we bid farewell to our faithful yacht crew, and each other, as our adventure comes to an end. There are no activities planned, so you can depart any time after 1pm (we arrive in Split at approximately 9AM).
