So, you are coming to Croatia for the first time and you want to maximize your stay as you have heard all these things about Dubrovnik and its city walls, you have heard about Plitvice Lakes, Split, the magical islands of Hvar, Brac, Vis, Lastovo. But then again, there is the island of Korucla . Questions, questions, questions! What are the answers?
Well, from my local experience angle, there are three types of luxury travelers There are those who opt out for a private luxury tour starting from Zagreb to Plitvice Lakes and then continuing from Plitvice Lakes to Zadar and then from Zadar to Split. From Split one would normally take the old picturesque road route to Dubrovnik passing through Makarska Riviera before reaching their final destination, the city of Dubrovnik. This is what I call a luxury roadie, someone who would strictly move on the road. Other type of luxury roadie is the one who is not that impressed by the guide reviews. It is the type who would be after unique local experience. In ssence, his trip from Zagreb to Plitvice Lakes would extend to Opatija.
From Opatija which would serv as his hub, one would expect him to go on one day shore and boat excursions to Pula, Rovinj and Brioni. He or she has heard of Istria and its magic cuisine especially when the tartuffe season is on. The semi roadie luxury traveler is one who would opt for a journey from Zagreb to Split via Plitvice Lakes and they would charter a private boat from Split to Hvar and continue their private cruise in the direction of Dubrovnik stopping at Korcula. For those who simply love sun and sea, they would charter a private boat from Dubrovnik and go on a cruise along Dalmatian coast visiting Elaphiti islands, Korcula, Hvar, Vis, Kornati islands. Couple of words of advice. If you start your road trip from a fly in Zagreb airport try to arrive as early as possible. This would give you more time to explore Zagreb region. Have you ever heard of a picturesque town of Samobor. Well it is situated in Zagreb region. The same goes for Trakoscen castle which is situated in hilly region called Zagorje around Zagreb. If you are to be semi-roadie then hoose Split as your hub port. Some people have this wild desire to visit Mljet or Korcula en route from Split to Dubrovnik.
For Dubrovnik Luxury Travel everything is possible yet for yourselves it could be a bit time consuming and tiring. There is always a possibility to charter a boat from Dubrovnik or perhaps go on a wine trail tour of Peljesac from Dubrovnik and cross with a private boat from Orebic to Korcula.
