DAY 2: ISLAND HOPPING TO HVAR AND BLUE LAGOON

After another morning in vibrant Split, it is the time to embark on a private boat for an adventurous boat ride to small island Krknjaši and Hvar, the sunniest island in Croatia. With its beautiful renaissance architecture, inspiring cultural heritage and vitalizing Mediterranean nature, Hvar pretty much has everything.

Krknjasi bay on the east coast of the island Veli Drvenik is known as the Blue Lagoon for its incredible hue of crystal clear water which create an unique tropical paradise.

This natural gem is protected with two islands from the outside, large (Veliki) and small (Small) Krknjas. The unusual sandy sea bottom and the immaculate shallow crystal clear water create an unique tropical paradise in the middle of Dalmatia. This amazing islands are perfect for snorkeling and swiming. After Krknjaši continue to Hvar island.

To begin with, Hvar looks like “an open-air gallery,” an exhilarating visual feast. Hvar is considered as one of the top 10 beautiful islands in the world and it has more Intangible UNESCO Heritage than any other island in the world. It’s the sunniest place in Europe. In short, a place that everybody should visit. At least once in a lifetime.

Hvar is a calming place of sophisticated hedonism, shaped by the cultural influence of Venice, the Austrian Empire, and authentic Dalmatia.

After arrival in Hvar, the rest of the day is at leisure. Whether people choose to enjoy swimming in a crystal clear sea, sightseeing or discover the Hvar gastronomy scene, Hvar will reward them with some of the most scenic landscapes, sophisticated medieval and renaissance architecture, art and rich taste and flavor of local food and wine.

Overnight in Split.

DAY 3: NATIONAL PARK KRKA WATERFALLS

National Park Krka is among the most popular and most beautiful Croatian national parks. Lush greenery, tranquil lakes, powerful waterfalls, and cultural sites relax and reinvigorate body and soul. There is something almost meditative about the freshness and serenity of the river Krka and its surroundings.

Split walking tour will reveal some of the most iconic places of this ancient town, guide you through the history and give you a glimpse into the life of a modern Split.

The mouth of the river Krka is a beautiful set of breathtaking features, waterfalls, stunning canyon, and crystalline lakes. It attracts nature lovers, hikers, cyclists and offers an exciting day for a family trip away from crowded tourist trails. Some people might enjoy a guided tour with a local guide, while others might want to take time and relax, swim beneath the waterfalls or wander around with a family, creating precious memories.

The most appealing falls in the park, Skradinski Buk, consists of nearly 20 different waterfalls and is almost a half-mile long. Swimming beneath Skradinski Buk, in the clear crystalline pool, is a breathtakingly beautiful experience.

After lunch, it is time to go back to Split for a short and sweet guided tour.

The first stop of a Split walking tour is an ancient Diocletian palace, the surreally beautiful beating heart of the city. The next stop is the oldest (and the smallest) catholic Cathedral in the world, Cathedral of Saint Domnius on Peristil, built in the 4th century as the Imperial Roman mausoleum. From the top of the iconic bell tower near the Cathedral, you can enjoy a stunning panoramic view of the palace and the sea.

Peristil square, formerly a Roman court, echoes the ancient glory of the Roman empire.

Charming and Split-ish place worth a visit is Pjaca square with Split’s old town hall and a shiny marble tiles paved plaza, lined with pleasant cafes. Below the palace is Riva, palm-lined seafront promenade, famous for its beauty, lovely historic buildings, and zen-inducing overlook at the Adriatic sea.

In the center of Split, there is a beautiful and urban and polished Roman, Renaissance, and Venetian architecture. But in the north, there is an ancient Illyrian fortress Klis the seat of Croatian kings during the Middle Ages. Its mystical beauty and wild strength were featured in The Game of Thrones.

After the tour, the rest of the day is at leisure.

Rafting on the river Cetina, one of the most beautiful rivers in this part of Europe, is among the most popular adventure activities in Dalmatia. Rafting is the best way to experience the majestic canyon of river Cetina, its amazingly clean water, and luscious nature.

Wild, fresh river Cetina, its fast waterfalls, stunning caves, and jungle-like vegetation are breathtakingly beautiful. Rafting with your loved ones on the exciting river Cetina is a beautiful bonding experience. Going down the class 2 and 3 rapids (the scale is up to 6) is perfectly calibrated for the family. Enough adrenaline, yet safe and appropriate for all the rafters older than six years.
