The Dalmatian islands and Adriatic coast, is one of the most scenically dramatic in Europe.

This spectacular walking holiday explores the very best of the Dalmatian Coast and it's areas of outstanding natural beauty, including the islands of Lopud, Korcula and Mljet, with its own national park. We'll walk through vineyards in the lovely Konavle countryside, hike to the top of Mount Snijeznica, the highest point in Southern Croatia, stride out along the ancient walls of Ston on the Peljesac peninsula and take in the forested ridges of Korcula Island. Travelling between islands by ferry, we climb to the highest points of Lopud and Mljet for stunning views over the coast. On each of our 5 walking days we will have a moderately paced hike of between 10 and 15km plus the opportunity for sightseeing and time to relax by the sea. The tour ends with a day spent in the unique walled city of Dubrovnik, known as the pearl of the Adriatic. With it's ochre-tiled roofscape, stone towers and stunning walls, which rise from an azure blue sea, Dubrovnik is a one of the world's most beautiful cities, offering a feast of medieval architecture and baroque churches interlaced with pavement cafes hidden down secluded lanes and alleyways. Croatia remains one of Europe's best kept travel secrets and is the perfect location for a relaxing walking holiday in the sunshine on the Adriatic.
Is this holiday for you?
The walking on this Croatia Coast and Islands holiday is not particularly difficult or sustained. On each day we will have an optional hike of around 10 to 15km with ascents typically between 150 and 225 metres. We will be walking on a variety of trails from quiet country roads to rough paths through the trees and along the coast and also on the walls at Ston. In general the paths are good with no difficult sections and no degree of exposure. While there is sufficient walking on each day to satisfy regular hikers, it is intended that this should be a relaxing holiday with a gentle pace.
