The Dalmatian coast is truly one of the world’s dream destinations. Known for its long sunny days, amazing natural beauty such as the magnificent Bay of Kotor and the Mljet National Park, quaint fishing villages and warm friendly people. It enjoys a long and varied history with many UNESCO World Heritage Sites including Diocletian's Palace and the walled city of Dubrovnik. And don’t forget the Adriatic Sea - crystal clear waters lapping rugged coast lines with wonderful beaches.
This journey begins with a nine day exploration by land through the countryside and towns of mysterious Albania, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Croatia. The journey is highlighted with the full charter of a delightful small yacht for a week long cruise in the Adriatic, exploring the most fascinating islands and ports of call.
This promises to be a truly exceptional adventure. Read on but don’t delay as space is very limited and previous departures filled months in advance.
