Croatia and the Dalmatian Coast are some of Europe’s favorite luxury destinations. From Dubrovnik to Korcula to Hvar, there is so much to see and do in this historic and extravagant region. While there are countless draws to come here, discover our top 5 reasons to visit Croatia with Trek Travel.
1. The Adriatic Sea
Brilliant blue and shimmering, the Adriatic Sea will take your breath away. As you cycle along the Dalmatian coast, enjoy stunning views of the water below. Take to the water on a private boat to swim and soak in the sunshine.
2. The Croatian Food
Croatia’s cities have delicious and delightful restaurants to choose from, but heading out into the countryside offers a whole new perspective on the local cuisine. Delight in a traditional Croatian feast at a family-owned “konoba” or taste locally made olive oil and jams at an olive oil mill. Make sure to try some of Croatia’s famous dishes during your visit, including Peka, a meat and vegetable dish that is slowly roasted under a cast iron bell.
3. The History
While walking, biking, and boating, discover the rich history of Croatia’s cities, including Korcula and Hvar. Partake in a walking tour of Korcula to learn more about the many rulers of the city, dating back to Greek rule in 6th century BC, or explore the 16th-century towers in the Hvar harbor as you stroll the chic surrounding town.
Soak in the luxury of Croatia’s best accommodations. Walk to Dubrovnik’s Old Town from Hotel Bellevue or enjoy views from the hotel terrace overlooking Miramare Bay. In Korcula, rest your head in a Relais & Châteaux property renovated from an 18th-century bishop’s palace. Relax in a rooftop pool or luxury spa at the boutique Hotel Adriana in Hvar. Each property offers beautiful scenery and exceptional amenities.
5. The Cycling
From lush valleys filled with vineyards, olive groves, and tangerine, fig, or mulberry trees to breathtaking limestone ridges set against the blazing blue of the sea, your senses will be alive while cycling through the natural beauty of Croatia.
