DAY 2 : Dubrovnik.

Spend a morning at leisure, familiarising yourself with your resort. Later this afternoon, explore Dubrovnik on the included sightseeing tour with a local guide. Venture along the coastal highway for panoramic views of the city walls, ancient rooftops and picturesque surroundings before continuing on foot to the heart of the city for a walking tour. This ancient town, surrounded by fortresses, is a treasure trove of architectural and cultural masterpieces preserved over centuries. The pleasant city walk will take you to the Rectors' Palace and the Franciscan Monastery with its 14th century pharmacy. (Meals as per hotel details).

DAY 3 : Dubrovnik.

DAY 4 : Elaphite Islands Cruise aboard Karaka.

Today's included excursion begins with a cruise aboard the magnificent 'Karaka', a replica of a traditional 16th century merchant ship. Sail to the picturesque Elaphite Islands, each dotted with gleaming white-stoned towns and rich, dark pine-trees, and indulge your taste buds as you sample the delicious local cuisine. The Elaphite Island Karaka cruise is a wonderful way to learn about the history of the islands. Cruise to Kolocep, an island thickly carpeted in aromatic pine trees and home to a picturesque fishermen's village. Next, sail to the village of Sudurad on the island of Sipan, a fisherman's port overlooked by towers built to defend the 16th century summer villa of the Skocibuha family. Lastly, cruise to Lopud island, famed for its long maritime tradition. Take a walk along the seafront to the Franciscan Monastery and the 19th century Gjorgic-Mayneri Park, with enough free time for swimming at one of the sandy beaches.

DAY 5 : Dalmatian Coast.

A free day to relax and enjoy your chosen resort. Dubrovnik is one of Croatia's best preserved medieval cities and sits perched on the picturesque southerly coast beside olive and pine bordered shingle beaches. Offering plenty of shops, bars and restaurants Dubrovnik is a delightful place to relax and enjoy the scenery. Similarly, Cavtat is also one of the loveliest coastal spots in Croatia and is set on a wooded headland dotted with cypress and pines trees. Just 15 miles south of Dubrovnik, Cavtat offers several pretty shingle beaches and a sleepy old quarter with a sheltered harbour and a good choice of shops and cafés. (Meals as per hotel details).

Providing superb views from its mighty hilltop fortress, the town is ribboned with cobbled streets, picturesque squares, and churches. Later, drive along the Lovcen serpentines to Cetinje for breath-taking views over the Bay of Kotor, and a short stop in Njeguski for a chance to sample local Njeguski cheese and the famed pršut smoked ham.

on cruise would have liked more sailing time and shorter swim stops


Great hotel, super excursions, fascinating region to be in. Two long and two shorter excursions in the week was a great balance with time at leisure.


A very good combination of interesting trips and free days.




After poor start we enjoyed every minute excellent value also.


Staff on boat could have not done more especially Jlena

Discover Croatia's Dalmation Coast

Richard Booth 02/07/2015

I had a fantastic holiday, The Grand Hotel Park made me feel very welcome and at meal times they noticed i had shaky hands so they helped me every time. My room was on the top floor always very clean and regular towel changes. All the trips i went on were excellent and the tour guides very informative. Would book another tour with you next time.

Thank you for your request.
