Traveling by train:
We offer the possibility of traveling by train from the UK (or other parts of Europe) to Croatia and can book this for you. Leaving from London you need to allow 2 days to travel in either direction, though you can of course spend longer and enjoy some of the cities and scenery en route. The train is usually via Munich and Zagreb and through Slovenia, though it is also possible to travel via Italy (via Milan) and get a ferry to/from Split or Dubrovnik.

Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your vacation will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
The management and crew of these vessels are dedicated to sustainable tourism in Croatia and are passionate about raising awareness of environmental, economic and sustainable tourism policies in Croatia. They believe the promotion of environmental awareness in the region will have a prolonged and positive impact on the livelihoods of the local people and maintain Croatia as a sustainable tourism destination for future generations.

The vessels that we use are all built in Croatia, specifically for use in these waters. This ensures that the most appropriate local resources are used wherever possible, and that the vessels are all built to comply and exceed local environmental and sustainability regulations.

By using small ships to visit and stay in some of the smaller ports and villages, we are providing an opportunity for a boost to tourism without the need for potentially unwanted and inappropriate new hotels to be built, and without increasing road traffic.

The Venetian lagoon is a very sensitive area and some Venetians believe that the increasing cruise traffic is harming the local environment. For this part of the voyage we switch to travel by road in a midi bus. Modern buses are very efficient with fuel usage and by having a small to medium size group we can still visit sensitive areas without swamping the neighbourhood.

The Impacts of this Trip

Vast floating blocks of flats, otherwise known as cruise ships, arrive direct from Venice and spill their loads onto the Dubrovnik dock where they are met by a huge fleet of buses that whisk them for a couple of hours in the beautiful city. These monoliths cruise past one of Europe's most beautiful coastlines with barely a second glance, and without a thought to the places they are missing.

Our vessel, on the other hand, stops at many small ports and towns where we can fully enjoy some of the very best that Croatia has to offer. The money that we will spend in many of these smaller communities will help to preserve the fantastic heritage of these antique coastline.

Our visits to Mljet National Park & The Benedictine monastery on St Mary Isle will help preserve them by putting a little funding directly into their coffers. Likewise our visits to Plitvice Lakes National Park and beautiful Postojna Cave in Slovenia add a little to the local coffers.

Our vessels are captained and crewed by Croatians.

The krka park

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


If you want to have more time on land in Croatia this is not your tour. They only move the boat during the day and it's 6-8 hours to each port that you stop. You stop late in the day and only have the late afternoon and evening to see Croatia on land. Also you can't vet the other passengers and we had some that were high maintenance.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


I think it benefited local people but didn't reduce impacts on environment because of the cruise but we knew that when we booked

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


I would probably travel a little bit different next time just because we didn't have a lot of time to experience the town's we stopped in, we felt rushed. Also only had one swim stop because of the schedule.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


Exploring the Croatian coast with so much original or restored towns to give insight into life over the last 1,000 years.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


Make sure you can walk 12,000 steps a day

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Yes

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


Food on board of the boat was the worst from 39 years of traveling. Bus drivers got lost many time but we had a super tour director in Layla. The boat and bar attendants on boat very good although I suspect chemical smell from refit and many had allergic reactions.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


We had a superb Program Guide, Goran, who was a great organizer, provided much information, answered all questions with professional ease and just made sure we could relax and have fun.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


September is a lovely time to visit the Dalmatian Coast, including swims in the Adriatic. The sun and air are still warm and the swarms of tourists are gone. We were rarely in port with large cruise ships. Enjoy the local guides who are carefully chosen and can provide cultural and historical context to your visit.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


We had a Slavic crew, mostly from Croatia itself. Might have been more responsible to provide refillable water containers for our daily shore excursions as we were given plastic bottles.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


This trip exceeded my expectations!
