Our experienced driver/guide will pick you up at your hotel/Airbnb at 05:00 am for our 2-day tour. There is a 5,5 hours drive ahead of us, but it is a very comfortable drive, mostly through our modern A1 Adriatic Highway. We will stop along the way for coffee/breakfast/toilet.

We will arrive at Plitvice at about 11:00 am and our guide will give you the maps and instruct you which trails to take depending on your preferences and leave you to enjoy the beauty of Plitvice at your own pace.

Marvel the upper and lower of the 16 lakes, hike the well-marked trailed and small wooden bridges, and have a boat ride across Kozjak lake.

We suggest having a snack/lunch in one of the park’s restaurants or bring your own lunch box and have your lunch in a stunning nature setting

You will meet with your driver/guide at 17:00 (which gives you more than enough time – 6 hours in the park) at one of the park’s entrances and continue the drive back to the Dalmatian coast and town of Zadar (less than 2 hours drive).
Upon arrival in Zadar, there will be a hotel check-in and free time for dinner and exploring Zadar Old Town.

Dinner suggestions:

  • Pet Bunara, Bruschetta – mid range Italian/Dalmatian cuisine
  • Fosha– high-end fish and seafood restaurant

Overnight in Zadar

Day 2

After breakfast in Zadar you will have an orientation walk through the Old Town of Zadar and some free time for photos/coffee/visiting St Donatus Church.

At about 10:30 we will continue our 1:15 h drive to the Town of Split.

Upon arrival in Split, there will be a local licensed guide waiting to take you on a private walking tour of Split Old Town (Diocletian’s Palace, Peristil, Saint Dujams church and Belltower, Old Fishmarket, Venetian Old Center).

Following the tour, there will be free time for lunch and further explorations of the city.

Our suggestions:

  • Climb the Vidilica – viewpoint on Marjan Hill for great panoramic views of Split.
  • Visiting Diocletian’s Cellars
  • Climbing up St Dujam’s Belltower is a great choice.
  • Take a stroll to Bacvice beach and join locals in a game of Picigin
  • Or just sit at Riva waterfront, enjoy your coffee and watch people pass by

We will depart Split at 16:00 and drive towards Dubrovnik with occasional photo/toilet/coffee stops. Arrival to Dubrovnik is at around 19:00 and the tour ends with a drop off to your hotel/apartment in Dubrovnik.
