South Croatia Fly-Drive Holiday

13 Day Tour, from £1725 per person

This Croatian fly-drive concentrates on the highlights of Southern Croatia with stays in Dubrovnik and Split, as well as on the Island of Korcula, where we recommend you visit Lastovo Island, part of a remote archipelago in southern Dalmatia.

  Closed to the outside world for much of its history, a visit to the island is a step back in time – medieval stone villages, fields still worked by hand, large expanses of untouched forest, hidden coves and beaches.  The interior of the island remains a wild, unspoilt map of karst valleys and limestone ridges, macadam roads, olive groves, footpaths, fields and orchards.

Price based on 3-star hotels and group A car hire. For upgrades to larger cars and prices for 4-star or 5-star hotel options, please speak to one of our Travel Specialists.
