Not the sort to watch the world go by? These packages are perfect if you enjoy getting out in the world and being on-the-go! Enjoy longer walking tours and days full of fun activities punctuated with time to rest.

Join WTA for an enchanting time in Croatia! On this trip, you will visit the praiseworthy cities of Zagreb, Split, & Dubrovnik. Croatia has developed a wide artistic, literary, and musical culture over the centuries. The country’s rich heritage lives beyond its museums, churches, and cathedrals. You will be surprised to discover that nearly ten percent of Croatia’s territory is occupied by national parks, nature parks, and protected areas; and nearly half of its land area is covered by untouched nature. The inland capital of Zagreb is famous for its dazzling Austro-Hungarian architecture and its charm stemming from vibrant culture and history. The stunning upper district of the city is dotted with medieval settlements on hilltops, cobbled streets, and medieval squares.

WTA will bring your group to local hot spots to experience truly authentic Croatian culture. Our second destination on this tour, Dubrovnik, is the most visited city in the country, and with good reason. Not only is it one of the last remaining walled towns in the world, but the fortress views are exceptional! The surrounding stone walls were built between the 11th and 13th centuries to protect the city from war and epidemics. The perimeter wall stretches a full 1.3 miles, consisting of an immense system of forts, walkways, and bastions that offer breathtaking views. Walking through Dubrovnik is truly like walking through time. Join us on this unique adventure!

Itinerary

DAY 1 – May 10 – Arrive at Franjo Tuđman Airport Zagreb (ZAG), and private transportation will bring you to your accommodations in central Zagreb. After settling in, join your new travel companions for a welcome dinner at a local restaurant.

Note: We recommend leaving the US on May 9 so that your flight arrives the morning of  May 10 – early enough to participate in Day 1’s activities. Should you wish to arrive on May 9 instead, pre-trip hotel charges will be added to your final bill. 

DAY 2 – May 11 – Join your group on a private tour of Zagreb, capital of Croatia and home to the Croatian Parliament, Government, and President. You will learn of the historic and political threshold between the East and West, illustrating both the continental and the Mediterranean spirit of this nation.

As the only National Park in Croatia on UNESCO’s list of protected natural and cultural heritage, you will be amazed by the beauty of sixteen wonderful interlinked azurely-green colored crystalline lakes. 

DAY 4 – May 13 – Today, experience a private walking tour of Old Town Split. This tour will take you to the places off the beaten path and allow you to discover local food. The second-largest city in Croatia, Split (Spalato in Italian) is a great place to see Dalmatian life as it is lived. 

DAY 5 – May 14 – Your group will travel from Split to Dubrovnik today, a scenic three-hour drive. This evening, experience an intimate farm-to-table oyster harvest dinner on a private island.

Host

What can I say…I love the world! Not just some of it, ALL OF IT. I travel because I’m curious, thrive in new cultures, and need a change of scenery more than the average person. The creation of WTA is the product of the faith I had to create a space for women just like me. When we travel together, I feel whole and in bliss being with my tribe. I’m inspired every day by the extraordinary women that travel with WTA. I’m a better person because of Women Travel Abroad. And I thank each and every one of my travelers for having faith like me and believing that world travel together is possible. Cheers to 23 trips and 154 WTA travelers and to 100 more trips and 1,000 more WTA travelers in the future!
