EXPLORE THE ANCIENT CITY OF SPLIT

If you’re keen to take in a bit of ancient history during your strolls, a walking tour of Split is an excellent way to explore the sights and sounds of this bustling city. Grab a map and plan your own route through the winding cobbled streets, admiring the beautiful architecture along the way and perhaps stopping for a cup of Croatian coffee in a tucked-away café.

MARVEL AT MLJET NATIONAL PARK

The island of Mljet has numerous walking trails to enjoy, from short strolls through tranquil woodland to longer walks passing by charming bays, villages, and vantage points. With walking routes catering to all abilities, you’ll be treated to an unforgettable experience on the unique island of Mljet.

STROLL AROUND ŠCEDRO ON YOUR SAILING GETAWAY

Just under two miles off the south coast of Hvar, Šcedro is a protected nature park with beauty around every corner. Wander up the island’s hill to explore the abandoned village of Nastane, getting a glimpse into ancient village life and soaking in some incredible views in the process.

SAUNTER THROUGH THE STREETS OF KORCULA OLD TOWN

Korcula’s terrain is ideal for exploring on foot, offering a wide variety of different established routes you can choose to follow. Charming and idyllic, we think you’ll fall in love with the winding streets of Old Town thanks to its stunning Renaissance architecture and resplendent cathedral.

SEE THE CITY WALLS OF DUBROVNIK

These medieval city walls are hugely popular, which is why we think the best time to walk them is early in the morning. Avoiding the majority of the crowds and the hot mid-afternoon Croatian sunshine means you can fully marvel at the stunning views of the city of Dubrovnik afforded to you by the high city walls.
