why go? 

The

From the towering turquoise waterfalls in Plitvice to the stunning seaside Roman fortresses of Split and Dubrovnik and the clear Adriatic waters surrounding the island of Hvar,

Croatia outshines even Italy and Greece as the ultimate European summer adventure. 

In Croatia, you'll learn about the deep recent history and culture of the Balkans, while also living your best life under the Mediterranean sun. Open yourself to new experiences by wandering the historical palaces of Split and then trying delicious homemade gnocchi at our favorite restaurant on the water. Get lost in Hvar by renting a scooter and exploring all over the island, finding little Croatian towns and hidden beaches along the way, or spend your day on a boat out on the water. Paddle out to sea in a kayak for a view of Dubrovnik's seaside fortress walls or feel like the Mother of Dragons looking over the picturesque blue sea and orange rooftops of at the top of the city's cable car.
