Ker & Downey’s Croatia by Land and Sea journey begins first in Rovinj. Croatia’s most northerly pocket—known as Istria—is a coastal gem best explored with a Ker & Downey guide leading you through the “Tuscany of Croatia”. Here, Rovinj’s cluster of houses and small squares makes the modern day seem like a faraway place.

Nearby, explore the Venetian architecture in Porec. Italy isn’t that far off geographically from this part of Croatia, and its influence is easy to find. Indeed, the mosaics in the UNESCO-listed sixth-century Byzantine basilica rival Ravenna’s. Of course, the highlight of your time here will be an exclusive truffle lunch in Motovun.

Then travel onward to Zadar, the heart of the Adriatic. This medieval walled city is ripe for exploration with its idyllic Old Town and Roman ruins. Don’t miss the famous Sea Organ, which plays music according to the rhythm of the waves.

Private Yacht Charter

Finally, it is time to continue your Croatia private tour aboard your private yacht charter. Your private skipper will take you from island to island in search of your favorite Croatia beach or coastal town. The choice won’t be easy, since there are more than 100 islands to choose from. Highlights include a visit to a Brac fishing village and jumping into the crystal blue waters around the Pakleni islands. Secluded beaches and bays are also easy to find on Korcula, one of the greenest islands in Dalmatia. Along the way, channel your inner nature lover in Krka, where you can hike and bike blissfully amid the waterfalls. Additionally, take time to explore Split with your private guide. Split’s residents will tell you that their city is the most beautiful… and it’s hard not to agree.
