Description

Be immersed in Norway's vibrant culture on this 14-day cruise. In Trondheim, ancient history mingles with college-town energy to create a fascinating city. Don't miss the magnificent Nidaros Cathedral and its patina spires. The colourful Art Nouveau architecture of Alesund is only outdone by its stunning surroundings, including Geirangerfjord, a UNESCO World Heritage site. For souvenirs, meander the cobbled main street of Kongensgate. In Eidfjord, get up close with nature and photograph Norway's most famous waterfall, Voringsfossen. For a local treat, try a cloudberry sorbet at Dolce Vidda.

Golden-roofed towns and pristine national parks; tranquil islands lapped by turquoise waters; ancient sites and time-honoured traditions. Our South Croatia tour takes in all this and more, inviting you to discover one of Europe's most enticing destinations.

Tour Itinerary:

Day 1 - Split-Trogir

We’ll start our tour in Split, a UNESCO World Heritage-listed city beside the azure Adriatic. Here, our trail will take us into the white walls of Diocletian’s Palace, a vast fortress filled with centuries of history. We’ll also take in the Grgur Ninski Statue and the Cathedral and Bell Tower of St Domnius before moving on to Trogir – where we’ll embark on a tour of the historic town centre with a local guide. To finish our first day, we’ll take a seat at a local restaurant for an authentic meal (and warm Croatian welcome).

Accommodation: Hotel Pasike (or similar)

Meals: Dinner

Day 2 - Trogir-KRKA national park-Trogir

This morning will see us seeking the crystalline lakes and energetic rivers of Krka National Park before we move on to a hidden treasure: the Bibich Winery. At this small, family-owned establishment we’ll learn the history of winemaking in the region – while being treated to local wines and gourmet tapas. After that, we’ll round off the day with some free time to relax back in Trogir.

Accommodation: Heritage Hotel Tragos (or similar)

Meals: Breakfast

Day 3 - Trogir-Korcula

Today we'll say goodbye to Trogir and move on to Split, where we'll catch the ferry to Korcula – an island that's reputed to be the birthplace of Marco Polo. After checking into our hotel, we’ll get our bearings on a walk through the Old Town. Then: time to hone those culinary skills! An included cookery class and dinner are on the agenda.

Accommodation: Hotel Korcula De La Ville (or similar)

Meals: Breakfast & Dinner

Day 4 - Korcula

Today you're free to explore Korcula as you wish. Lounge at a nearby beach, or find a café and get to know the local cuisine - and if you're in the mood for exploration, you can even hop aboard a taxi boat to the tiny island of Vrnik.

Accommodation: Hotel Korcula De La Ville (or similar)

Meals: Breakfast

Day 5 - Korcula-Peljesac Peninsula-Kotor

After bidding farewell to Korcula, we'll set sail to the nearby Peljesac Peninsula - a hotspot for winemaking since the days of the Roman Empire. We'll savour the fruits of this ancient tradition on a tour of a local winery before leaving Croatia for Montenegro. Kotor Bay is a soul-stirring sight - and at the centre lies UNESCO World Heritage-listed Kotor town, seemingly untouched by time.

Accommodation: Hotel Vardar (or similar)

Meals: Breakfast & Dinner

Day 6 - Kotor

First today: a walking tour of Kotor with a local guide. Old Kotor was built like a maze for protective purposes – and it’s very easy to get lost here! When the tour is over, we’ll continue to UNESCO-protected Perast for an insight into the area’s history. Then: time to take to the water! A boat will carry us to Our Lady of the Rocks – a small church on an manmade island. After hearing the legend behind the church, we’ll return to Kotor – where you’ll be free to spend the rest of the afternoon as you please.

Accommodation: Hotel Vardar (or similar)

Meals: Breakfast

Day 7 - Kotor - Lovcen National Park - Dubrovnik

Today it’s back on the road (taking the scenic route, of course) as we make our way to the picturesque Lovcen National Park – which boasts incredible views across Montenegro. After stopping for a delicious lunch at a restaurant in the charming village of Njeguši, we’ll move on to Dubrovnik – where the evening will be yours to hunt down more local fare, explore the city’s cobbled streets or simply put your feet up and relax at the hotel.

Accommodation: Hotel More (or similar)

Meals: Breakfast & Lunch

Day 8 - Dubrovnik

Today’s guided tour of Dubrovnik will see us strolling through the Old Town, where we’ll see the likes of the Franciscan Monastery, Sponza Palace, the Cathedral of Our Lady and the Old Port. If the weather is on our side, we’ll take the opportunity to climb the spectacular Mt Srd on a cable car ride. Later on, we’ll come together for one last included dinner to toast the end of our trip.

Meals: Breakfast & Dinner

Day 9 - Dubrovnik- Mali Ston - Trsteno -Dubrovnik

Before we say goodbye, there’s still plenty of time to round things off with a visit to the beautiful Trsteno Arboretum (one of the filming locations featured in Game of Thrones). After tucking into lunch at a local oyster farm, we’ll return to Dubrovnik – where the tour will end.

Meals: Breakfast & Lunch
