Tripadvisor Croatia Forum Q&A sessions.

Tripadvisor Croatia Forum is somewhat arguable the best source of information for the fellow travelers. One of the questions which is more often than not addressed is the island hopping in particular that from Split to Dubrovnik. Whilst it is possible during the peak season to organize this trip on catamaran, but in the end you may end up paying more rather than less. We at Dubrovnik Luxury Travel advise you to take up airliners approach to the issue of Split to Dubrovnik island hopping and get yourself booked a small yacht in the line of Jeanneau Prestige 36 Fly or even Sunseeker Camargue and with advance booking you can negotiate a fair deal price. This is an ideal yacht for a party of four. A fellow traveler asked on Tripadvisor Croatia Forum if he can hop from Brač to Hvar then onwards to Korčula and finally ending up in Dubrovnik without stopping at Mljet. And all this on foot by catamaran. For starters while Milna on Brač is picturesque you really want to go to Bol. You can only catch catamaran from Milna to Jelsa on Hvar which would leave you with two taxi journeys of which one is rather brutally tiresome, that from Jelsa on Hvar to Hvar on Hvar. If you have decided to hop the islands from Split to Dubrovnik then you might as well do it on a 7 day yacht charter. It is utterly pointless to spend 3 nights in Korčula if you are island hopping on a 10 days tour from Split to Dubrovnik without stopping on the islands of Vis, Mljet or Elaphite islands. Then you might as well can book a 10 day holiday on the island of Korčula and make one day outings in the direction of Split or Dubrovnik.

 

Carefully planned itineraries will save you money on the yacht journey as the fuel is never calculated into the price of the island hopping experience from Split to Dubrovnik and you can avoid paying for berths by the advantage of being moored off one of the islands in your yacht.

Dubrovnik Luxury Travel offers advice on multi days customized tour from Zagreb to Dubrovnik

Zagreb is already an established European metropole with a number of airlines flying to it from European capitals and those destinations who are a hub, linking North and South America to Croatia via Zagreb. As a result, I would suggest you start your tour from Zagreb. Zagreb Croatian capitalAim to get to Zagreb in morning, so that you profit from sightseeing The Upper and Lower Town. If you are coming as far as Asia and Australia, I would suggest that you spend your second day in Zagreb by a day outing in a nearby hamlet of Samobor or you go on a daily tour of Zagorje so called Green Riviera and visit Trakoscen Castle. From Zagreb you would normally proceed to Plitvice, which are a must visit. This magical National Park of cascading lakes and waterfalls is a true natural wonder and a

day well spent.

From here you are descending down to Split and after spending a day here sightseeing you either go to islands Hvar then Korcula, Mljet and end up in Dubrovnik or you choose the road route via sleepy yet interesting villages of Makarska Riviera to Dubrovnik. Personally, I prefer to get on a sea route to Dubrovnik, because this tour is really is a true opportunity to explore Croatia by both road and sea. Once you reach and explore Dubrovnik it is advisory you book one of DLT’s one day shore excursion from Dubrovnik to Mostar or from Montenegro town of KotorDubrovnik to Kotor so that you can visit neighboring Bosnia and Herzegovina and Montenegro.
