Croatia - The Dalmatian Coast
The Wayfarers

Croatia - The Dalmatian Coast

Croatia's historic walled city, Dubrovnik, is the starting point for this eight-day journey through one of Europe's most diverse and beautiful countries.

Following paths through cypress woods and medieval towns, we explore Croatia's sleepy harbor towns and villages, and the milk-white limestone buildings that recall a bygone Mediterranean. We discover ancient monasteries and cathedrals, meander along rambling streets and through dramatic gorges.

A highlight of this Walk is the private boat-trip from the foot of Vidova Gora Mountain, which takes us to a secluded terrace restaurant overlooking the sea where we dine on fresh fish caught that morning.
