Island Hopping Along the Dalmatian Coast Day-by-day Itinerary

Day 1: Arrive in Split

Welcome to Croatia!  Upon arrival, a private driver will collect you from the Arrivals Hall and bring you to your accommodation.  Check-in to your hotel, and explore this fascinating town at your leisure.

Overnight in Split

Day 2: Split to Brač

After breakfast this morning you will take a guided walking tour of Split to enjoy the highlights of this ancient seaside town.  The highlight includes what is believed to be the oldest cathedral in the world!  Next, you will take a catamaran or a ferry to the island of Brač.  Check-in to your hotel in either Brol or Postira, and enjoy a leisurely evening on your own.

Overnight in Brol or Postira

Day 3: Brač to Hvar

Enjoy a leisurely morning, and sightseeing at your discretion before departing for the island of Hvar.  Your destination specialist can make sightseeing recommendations for you, and arrange any necessary guides.

Overnight in Hvar Town

Day 4: Hvar

Today is a full day to explore Hvar Island, the sunniest place in Croatia!  With approximately 2724 hours of sunshine each year, and a landmass that’s even shaped like a person lounging on the beach, it would make sense to spend the day reclining and relaxing, yourself.  If you’re interested in being active and doing more, we recommend visiting the Fortress located on the hillside above Hvar town for the best views of the old town and the water.  You could also have a driver bring you to some more remote areas including a tiny village referred to as “Little Venice” due to the channel of water that cuts the village in half, and is joined by little bridges.

Overnight in Hvar

Day 5: Hvar to Korčula

Enjoy another leisurely morning in Hvar.  You can either do some sightseeing or enjoy an early lunch before departing for the island of Korčula.  Upon arrival, a transfer will bring you to your accommodations.  Check-in, or leave your luggage with the desk agent, and set out to explore a bit of the island.  A water taxi can take you to nearby villages, but if you’ve had enough water travel for today, there’s plenty to see in Korčula town itself.

Overnight in Korčula town

Day 6: Korčula to Dubrovnik

This morning is another opportunity to soak in Korčula.  It is believed that the famed explorer Marco Polo was born and raised here.  You can imagine this historical figure, who has become a man of legend in our modern, western history curriculum, wandering the narrow streets and taking in the sea views.  Korčula is a beautiful place and is regarded as one of the best-preserved Medieval towns in the whole Mediterranean. 

This afternoon you will depart for Dubrovnik.

Overnight in Dubrovnik

Day 7: Dubrovnik

Today is a full day to explore “the Pearl of the Adriatic!”  We recommend taking a walking tour with a local, which is something your destination specialist can arrange for you.  Inside the walled city of Dubrovnik is like a fairytale setting, with the spectacular water views and ancient charm you’d expect when visiting Croatia.

After your walking tour, we recommend taking a ride on the new cable car system for an overlook of the Dubrovnik and Srdj mountain.

Overnight in Dubrovnik

Day 8: Depart for Home

After breakfast, a private driver will collect you from your accommodations and bring you to the airport Departures Hall for your return flight home.

Selected activities based on your interests:

Why We Love this Tour

Your Self Drive Tour of Ireland is the perfect introductory tour of the Emerald Isle.  It offers the freedom and flexibility of a chauffeured experience with a price point closer to a group guided tour. You and your loved ones can have the best of Ireland!

We love this itinerary because it allows you to see the highlights of Ireland as a first-time visitor. Or you can relive the best of Ireland if you’ve been before.  By staying in Dublin, swinging down to Kilkenny, then continuing to the beloved County Kerry you’ll have many sightseeing and touring opportunities.

Why We Love Dublin

Ireland’s capital city of Dublin blends modern amenities with charming historic neighborhoods. A flourishing food scene for everyone to enjoy. Explore the iconic sites such as the Guinness Storehouse, the Glasnevin Cemetery, and the Kilmainham Gaol.  Enjoy a pint and live music in a pub in the famous Temple Bar neighborhood. Join a walking tour about the Easter Rising or Ireland’s rich literature, or take a day trip up to Belfast for a bit of Northern Ireland.

Why We Love Kilkenny 

Kilkenny is one of Ireland’s oldest cities, dating as far back as the 6th century.  On the way there take some time to hike the stunning Wicklow Mountains. Then visit Powerscourt Estate to see the impressive house and manicured gardens.

Why We Love Country Kerry

County Kerry is ideal for those partaking in a self-drive tour of Ireland.  The rambling roadways of County Kerry cut through patchwork fields. Drive alongside the dramatic and rocky coastline. It’s home to some of the most striking castle ruins and charming villages Ireland has to offer.
Make this independent adventure yours!  

Nights can be added or reduced, your route can be changed. Tours and activity options can be selected based on your interests and purpose of travel.  Having a rental car allows you to visit the pockets of Ireland that the train doesn’t reach. All of this without the expense of constraints of a private chauffeur.  Come and go as you please. You never know what you’ll discover when you’re exploring this special country at your own pace!

Your Destination Specialist knows Ireland and will take the time to learn what’s important to you.  Your itinerary will be designed just for you, to make the most of your time and experience in the Emerald Isle!
