Croatia by Land and Sea with Ker & Downey

Suggested journey at a glance: 11 days/10 nights including overnights in Rovinj and Zadar and six nights on a private yacht stopping in Telascica, Skradin, Split, Hvar, Korcula, and Dubrovnik.

Coastal Towns

The country’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.” Rovinj’s cluster of houses and small squares, all tucked within narrow streets and cuddled into town walls, makes the modern day seem like a faraway place. Our designers like Hotel Monte Mulini for your stay because it breathes modern life into an area steeped with history. Venetian architecture abounds in Porec. Italy isn’t that far off geographically from this part of Croatia, and its influence is easy to find. The mosaics in the UNESCO-listed sixth-century Byzantine basilica rival Ravenna’s. The heart of the Adriatic beats in Zadar, a medieval walled city, but Split’s residents will tell you that their city is the most beautiful… and it’s hard not to agree.

Private Yacht Charter

A private skipper takes you from island to island by private yacht in search of your favorite beach. Be prepared, because with more than 100 islands to choose from, it’s going to be a tough choice. Life seems unchanged in a typical Brac fishing village. Jump off the boat into crystalline seas around the paradise-like Pakleni islands. Secluded beaches and bays are easy to find on Korcula, one of the greenest islands in Dalmatia. Keep exploring on our customized Adriatic journey by private yacht. >>

Foodie Delights

Cooking is a leisurely event in Skradin. It takes up to 12 hours to make its famous risotto, best paired with wine from one of the surrounding vineyards. The tiny town of Motovun is a delicious discovery, and truffles are a culinary treasure around this area. Your Ker & Downey guide will point you to a cozy little cafe for a quiet lunch or dinner in the spellbinding city of Dubrovnik. Your tastebuds will be singing, and your eyes will be staring at all the undeniable beauty of Dubrovnik’s blend of Baroque, Gothic, and Renaissance architecture.
