Holiday information

 

A touring holiday in Croatia along the Adriatic

The southern Dalmatian Coast is Croatia at its most beguiling. Dubrovnik is widely renowned as the ‘jewel of the Adriatic’, its name synonymous with marble squares, splendid Baroque architecture and terracotta rooftops encircled by ramparts. The coastline and its hundreds of islands are every bit as enchanting, and you have the chance to discover two of these on this holiday.
The first, Korčula, is perfectly idyllic, characterised by pretty coves, sleepy villages and rolling hills clad with olive groves and vines, while Mljet combines forests and glistening lakes to wonderful effect, and is spellbinding in its beauty and tranquillity. Touring by car, you can take things at your own pace, choosing sightseeing, gentle strolls, boat trips or dips in the sea as the mood takes you.

Itinerary

The key to Inntravel holidays is flexibility. You can start on the day of your choice, and are free to add extra nights.
  • Arrival in Korčula
    Night 1: at Hotel Korkyra (the first of three nights here).
    As your first night’s accommodation is on the day of travel, Day 1 is your first day of exploration.
  • Explore Korčula
    The island of Korčula is known for its beautiful interior of dense woodland, rolling vineyards and extensive olive groves, as well as for being the (hotly disputed) birthplace of Marco Polo. Spend your time here relaxing by the sea, seeking out quiet coves of crystal-clear water, and strolling through scented pinewoods, vineyards and silver-green olive groves. Exquisite, perfectly formed Korčula Town is another highlight, its intricate, leaf-shaped formation of close-knit streets and alleyways mirroring the fronds of the palm trees that rustle alongside its encircling, 15th-century walls.
  • Korčula to Mljet
    Leaving Korčula, you cross to the Pelješac Peninsula and drive through its famous vineyards for a second ferry journey over to Mljet, where your hotel for the next three nights, the Odisej in Pomena, is the only one on this tranquil, fragrant island. (Driving time: 2hrs, plus ferry crossing)
  • Explore Mljet
    Take your time exploring western Mljet: swim in translucent waters a few steps from your hotel; hire a bike to cycle around the nearby salt lakes; or take to forest trails which circumnavigate turquoise lakes and wind through pines to Polace, once a beatific base for marauding pirates before the Romans saw them off and claimed it for themselves. We also suggest a boat trip across a lake to reach a 12th-century Benedictine monastery and a waterside café where the views are hypnotic. Making use of your car, you can also venture further afield to discover more of what this beautiful island – Croatia’s Garden of Eden – has to offer.
  • Mljet to Dubrovnik
    Crossing back to Pelješac, you have chance to pause in Ston to sample the seafood for which it is renowned and to marvel at its fortifications, the oldest in Europe. Your destination is fairy-tale Dubrovnik, where you spend your last two nights at the historic Hotel Lapad on the Lapad Peninsula just outside the historic, walled centre. We also offer an upgrade to the stylish Hotel More. (Driving time: 3hrs, plus ferry crossing)
  • Explore Dubrovnik
    Your final day exploring Dubrovnik is one you won’t forget: take in scintillating views from the ramparts (or from the top of Mount Srd); stroll along wide, marble Placa, lined with cafés, shops, churches and palaces; and pop over to the neighbouring island of Lokrum for an easy-going stroll along shady footpaths, followed by a swim. Dubrovnik, despite sobering reminders of more recent upheaval, remains the world’s most perfectly preserved medieval city and the undisputed jewel of the Adriatic.
 

Accommodation

You stay in three well-located hotels. Star ratings are Croatian and may not correspond exactly to British star ratings.

We offer an upgrade option in Dubrovnik. Please indicate your preference at the time of booking. Whichever hotel you choose, it is well worth booking an additional night in Dubrovnik, so you'll have more time to explore the town, walk on the island of Lokrum or drive farther afield along the mainland coastline.

Reviews

If you've experienced this holiday first hand, why not write a review?

We are keen for as many customers as possible to review their holiday. To make it easier to do so, we include a specific review section on our post-holiday questionnaire, and this is what we publish here, unedited. Read our full review policy >

 

FAQs

If you have any questions relating to this or any other Inntravel holiday, our friendly travel experts will be happy to help.
  • The information that we send to you 2-3 weeks before your holiday includes practical information about each stage of your journey so that you can travel confidently from one hotel to another, recommendations for places to visit and eat out in each place, plus cultural information about the area. Where applicable, we also provide notes for a self-guided walking tour of most cities, and some large towns. Sample travel pack >
  • We can book a wide range of airlines and routes from the UK. As well as being more convenient for you to book all elements of your holiday together, it also means that we’ll accept liability for your travel arrangements, so if things go wrong, such as the airline going bust, we’ll make suitable alternative arrangements for you. For Europe and Morocco, there’s a £30 booking fee per person (£15 for children aged 2-11). For India and Nepal, the booking fee is £50 per person. More information on flights >
  • We can’t book flights that originate outside the UK, but if you wanted book your own flights to London (or elsewhere in the UK), we can make all onward travel arrangements (including flights) from there. Alternatively, if you are booking your own flights to an airport in continental Europe that’s appropriate for your holiday, we can book onward rail travel and/or taxis. More information about how we can tailor holidays for customers outside the UK >
  • Once you’ve decided on your exact itinerary (our travel experts will be happy to offer advice), you need to provide us with your party’s details, either by phone or via our booking form. At this point we also ask you to pay a deposit so that we can secure a room for you immediately on confirming availability with the hotel(s). If it turns out that we can’t secure the accommodation for the holiday you’ve requested, or offer an acceptable alternative, we’ll refund your deposit promptly and in full. After booking your accommodation and other key elements, we'll then book your travel (or you can do so if you’re making your own arrangements) and send you a Booking Confirmation and Invoice.
  • Yes, it’s something we insist on, even for holidays in the UK. The vast majority of holidays go smoothly, but when things go wrong, it can be expensive to put them right. Buying a new pair of walking boots after your suitcase is stolen mightn’t seem so bad, but the bill for being airlifted down from a mountain with a broken leg or flown home while still recovering from an illness or accident can cost tens of thousands of pounds.

    You don’t have to buy our policy (if you live outside Europe you’ll definitely need to make your own arrangements, as the policy is only for UK and EU residents), but you do need to make sure that you’re covered for medical emergencies and repatriation. We also recommend that you are covered for other eventualities, such as cancellation and loss of luggage and passports.
  • It is your responsibility to ensure you are in possession of the correct travel documents, with the correct validity. If you’re a UK citizen, you need a full British passport to travel to Croatia, but not a visa (if you are travelling after 31 October 2019, see the Brexit question below for more information). If you are a citizen of another country, you’ll need to check requirements with the national embassy or your own consulate.

    Current information regarding vaccinations and travel health advice can be found through the following NHS link: www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk/advice/ You must make sure you have adequate insurance cover for illness, accidents and repatriation (see the insurance question). UK citizens should also obtain a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) by applying at a Post Office or at www.ehic.org.uk. The EHIC allows reciprocal health care but should not be seen as a substitute for travel insurance. EHICs may cease to be valid in the event of a no-deal Brexit.
  • The official language is Croatian. The currency is the Kuna. Croatian time is GMT/UTC + 1. It uses Daylight Saving Time, so in summer is on BST + 1.
  • Even in the event of a no-deal Brexit, it’s been confirmed that flights will continue as normal and that you won’t need a visa to go on holiday (the limit on stays is 90 days). What you will need if there’s no deal is a passport that is valid for at least 6 months beyond the date of your arrival (extra months added because you renewed your passport early do not count) and adequate travel insurance to cover you for accidents and illness in case reciprocal health deals are suspended. If you are driving while on holiday, you will probably need an International Driving Permit (plus a Green Card if you are taking your own car to Europe). More information >
  • The UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) provides up-to-date, country-by-country travel advice, as well as information on security, local laws, passports and visas for UK citizens.
    If you live outside the UK, see our essential travel information page for a list of relevant websites.
