This heady mix of islands and ports represents a fascinating itinerary combining as it does some ‘must see’ sites together with little known places that are a world away from the well-trodden tourist trail. We will explore the coastline between Kotor in Montenegro and the attractive Croatian town of Opatija, a land of stunning scenery and equally enthralling architecture, where landscapes have all the appeal of an Edward Lear painting. Set sail through the fjord-like bay of Kotor and continue on through some truly beautiful scenery which can be appreciated whilst relaxing on the sun deck. We will witness a range of scenic delights including the majestic waterfalls of Krka and the delightful islands of Korcula, Hvar and Rab, as well as visiting some quieter spots and out-of-the way beaches which the Croats themselves escape to.
In addition to our included guided excursions, we have allowed ample time at leisure and there will also be opportunities to swim from the ship as we call into secluded bays and hidden coves and, taking advantage of our central moorings, to dine ashore and experience the atmospheric ports in their evening splendour. Whether it be the towering cliffs and rich vegetation, scenic waterways and indentations or the wealth of historic buildings, this unique area has so much to offer the genuine traveller and our itinerary will be appreciated by those who enjoy an eclectic mix of places and an informal style of cruising.
