What to Expect

Blue Roads Tours are conducted at a leisurely pace; we take our time and avoid rushing from place to place.  Stops are made frequently during the day to avoid extended periods of time on the coach.  On a typical day they might leave at 9am and arrive at the hotel at 5pm.  We endeavor to build rest and relaxation time into our itineraries, an most inclusions are not mandatory – so if you’d rather explore on your own, you’re welcome to meet up with the group at the designated meeting point. 

The Blue Roads Tours are designed so that there is as little time as possible on the mini-coach and plenty to see while on board.  We travel along the scenic route wherever possible, meaning you’ll see more of the countryside and local village life than on a regular tour.  Inevitable, there are days when travelling between locations may involve motorway driving and more mileage.  Generally, driving time will not last for more than three or four hours per day.

Itinerary

Day 1Split

Our incredible journey will begin in Split, a UNESCO World Heritage-listed city beside the azure Adriatic. Tonight, we’ll get to know one another better over a delicious welcome dinner. (D)

Day 2Split – Trogir

Today’s history-filled agenda begins with a walking tour of Split – where a local guide will take us into the white walls of Diocletian’s Palace, a vast fortress filled with centuries of history. We’ll also pay a visit to the Grgur Ninski Statue and the Cathedral of St Domnius, before moving on to medieval Trogir. Here, we’ll be taken around the maze of marble streets and Romanesque buildings by a local guide – before going our separate ways to explore this tiny island town and indulge in some delicious local cuisine. (B)

Accommodation: Hotel Tragos (or similar)

Day 3Trogir – Krka National Park – Trogir

This morning will see us seeking the crystalline lakes and energetic waterfalls of Krka National Park. We’ll be shown around this mesmerising park by a local guide, before moving on to a family-owned local winery. At this quaint establishment we’ll learn the history of winemaking in the region – while being treated to a tasting of selected wines. After that, we’ll round off the day with some free time to relax back in Trogir. (B)

Accommodation: Hotel Tragos (or similar)

Day 4Trogir – Korcula

Today we’ll say goodbye to Trogir and move on to Split, where we’ll catch the ferry to Korcula – an island that’s reputed to be the birthplace of Marco Polo. After checking into the hotel, our Tour Leader will take us on a stroll through the Old Town – before we enjoy some free time to delve deeper into the hidden treasures of this medieval island. Then: time to hone those culinary skills! We’ll uncover the distinct and unique flavours of Croatian cuisine with an included cookery class – and indulge in our creations for dinner this evening. (B,D)

Accommodation: Hotel Korcula De La Ville (or similar)

Day 5Korcula

Today you’re free to explore Korcula as you wish. Lounge at a nearby beach or find a café and get to know the local cuisine. If you’re in the mood for exploration, you can even hop aboard a taxi boat to the tiny island of Vrnik. (B)

Accommodation: Hotel Korcula De La Ville (or similar)

Day 6Korcula – Peljesac Peninsula – Kotor

After bidding farewell to Korcula, we’ll set sail to the nearby Pelješac Peninsula – a hotspot for winemaking since the days of the Roman Empire. Savour the fruits of this ancient tradition with a visit to a local winery – before we leave Croatia for Montenegro. Kotor Bay is a soul-stirring sight – and at the centre lies UNESCO World Heritage-listed Kotor town, seemingly untouched by time. Enjoy some free time to explore the picturesque Old Town at your leisure, before reconvening tonight for sumptuous group dinner. (B,D)

Accommodation: Hotel Vardar (or similar)

Day 7Kotor

First today: a guided walking tour of Kotor. Old Kotor was built like a maze for protective purposes – and it’s very easy to get lost here without some local expertise! Following that, we’ll take to the water. A boat will carry us to Our Lady of the Rocks – a small church on a manmade island. After hearing the fascinating legend behind the church, we’ll return to Kotor – where you’ll be free to spend the rest of the afternoon as you please. (B)

Accommodation: Hotel Vardar (or similar)

Day 8Kotor – Lovcen National Park – Dubrovnik

Today it’s back on the road (taking the scenic route, of course) as we make our way to the picturesque Lovcen National Park. A local guide will show us around as we soak up the incredible views across Montenegro. Then, we’ll pay a visit to the charming village of Njeguši – where we’ll have time to enjoy lunch at our leisure. Moving onto Dubrovnik – the evening will be yours to hunt down more local fare, explore the city’s cobbled streets or simply put your feet up and relax at the hotel. (B)

Accommodation: Hotel More (or similar)

Day 9Dubrovnik

Today’s guided tour of Dubrovnik will see us strolling through the Old Town, where we’ll see the likes of the Franciscan Monastery, Sponza Palace, the Cathedral of Our Lady and the Old Port. If the weather is on our side, we’ll take the opportunity to climb the spectacular Mt Srd on a cable car ride. Tonight, we’ll come together for one last included dinner – and clink glasses at what an incredible nine days it has been. (B,D)

Accommodation: Hotel More (or similar)

Day 10Dubrovnik – Trsteno – Dubrovnik

Before our journey comes to an end, there’s still plenty of time to round things off with a visit to the beautiful Trsteno Arboretum. After tucking into a delicious lunch at a local oyster farm, we’ll return to Dubrovnik – where we’ll say our goodbyes. (B,L)
