Trip Overview

Day 1: Arrival in Croatia

Welcome to Croatia! Take included transportation with your new friends to our first stop--the vibrant port city of Split!

Find yourself in the economic and cultural center of the Dalmatian Coast. This Mediterranean city’s small-town vibe and laid-back locals have made it one of Europe's hottest destinations.

Enjoy opening dinner with your new friends at a local restaurant as you enter Croatian culture.

Day 2: Split & Sea Kayaking

Escape the city and venture out on sea kayaks! Discover small beaches and explore the underworld as you snorkel around ancient stone pyramids that emerge out of the water.

In the afternoon, venture out with a walking tour through Diocletian’s Palace to learn about Split’s rich history that dates back over a thousand years. 

Romans, Illyrians, and Slavic cultures all left a mark on Split, and the final product is today's fusion of different architecture that gives this city a unique look.

Later in the evening, head outside of the city for a unique experience with a visit to an observatory to learn about the night sky's constellation! Enjoy wine and cheese with a local astronomer during this private stargazing activity.

Day 3: Island of Hvar

Say goodbye to the mainland and travel by ferry to the island of Hvar, the queen of the Croatian Dalmatian Islands.

Head out for a guided walk around town with your Trip Leader! Learn about Hvar and how it's been a retreat for travelers dating back to the 19th century.

Pack your swimsuit and head out to Pokonji Dol, a small bay at the end of the island where you can run away from tourists and enjoy a nice relaxing day on the beach.

Day 4: Pakleni Islands

Cruise the open waters on a private speed boat to the Pakleni Islands, a gorgeous chain of wooded isles just off the coast of Hvar.

Spend the day swimming and snorkeling in secluded bays! Visit hidden caves and have lunch on the beachfront. 

Return to Hvar and enjoy a free evening. Experience the nightlife with your friends after a full day of explorations, or relax and create your own adventure.

Day 5: Korcula

After breakfast, get ready to explore another island! Today, you will travel by ferry to the island known as the Emerald Isle, Korcula.

Take to the streets with your Trip Leader and get to know the medieval Old Town. View the Venetian-styled buildings with red rooftops, and check out Saint Mark’s Cathedral, a stunning Gothic-Renaissance-style church. 

In the afternoon, visit the tiny village of Pupant. Pupant is home to one of the last remaining traditional family restaurants in Korcula. Tonight, you will enjoy an authentic meal and have an opportunity to taste homemade wine!

Day 6: Vineyards of Lumbarda

Enjoy breakfast at your hotel, then head over to the small coastal village of Lumbarda, the oldest settlement on Korcula.

Visit a local winery that produces wine originally cultivated by the Greeks. Afterward, explore this small fishing village by taking a walk to Przine Bay, home to one of the only sandy beaches on the Adriatic Coast.

Return to Korcula and enjoy a free evening to discover this island paradise. We suggest indulging in a seafood meal fresh from the Mediterranean Sea.

Day 7: Dubrovnik

Say goodbye to the islands and head to the mainland. Cruise across the Peljesac Peninsula and begin your journey to Dubrovnik, one of the best-preserved medieval cities in the world.

Stop in the town of Stona, famous for the 2nd longest consecutive walls in Europe, totaling over 4 miles in length and dating back to the 14th century. Sample a variety of oysters that are farmed right in the bay.

Arrive in Dubrovnik, and after a short rest, join your Trip Leader for a walking tour through this ancient city! In the evening, gather for a farewell dinner in this wonderful city.

Day 8: Relaxation & Departure

On the final day, wake up early and soak in the magic of Croatia.

Say goodbye to your new friends and depart at any time. You can get instructions from your Trip Leader on how to take taxis, buses, or local transportation to the airport.

Ask your Trip Leader for suggestions if you choose to spend more time in Dubrovnik.

U30X Trip Reviews

"Truly unforgettable! For my first experience leaving my home country, I couldn't have imagined anything better. Amazing trip leaders, amazing people, amazing experience. I would give more than five stars if I could!!!!" -Morgan R.

"It is great for people that want to travel at an affordable rate and want to travel with others rather than do the solo thing! It also allows for you to take very minimal time off of work since most trips are over the weekend! I can't recommend this company enough. :) It's an amazing community to be a part of." -Brooke T.

"I honestly cannot say enough about my experience to Ireland with this group! Currently sitting in the airport on my way home and can’t stop thinking about how perfect it was. Somehow they put 11 completely different people on a trip and made us feel like a family. Eric was my team leader and I couldn’t have asked for anyone better! They have amazing relationships with the local businesses and restaurants and you can tell they trjoy care about the countries they visit. I can’t wait for my next trip" -Darbi F.
