Island hopping by ferry in Croatia
Description of Island hopping by ferry in Croatia
Daily departures between 1st June and the end of October
Travelling by train:
We offer the possibility of travelling by train from the UK (or other parts of Europe) to Croatia and can book this for you. Leaving from London you need to allow 2 days to travel in either direction, though you can of course spend longer and enjoy some of the cities and scenery en route. The train is usually via Munich and Zagreb and through Slovenia, though it is also possible to travel via Italy (via Milan) and get a ferry to/from Split or Dubrovnik.
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetBy using public transport to travel from Split to Dubrovnik and the islands of Hvar and Korcula we are minimizing the emissions while not missing out on the beautiful islands and port towns. By providing short private transfers where necessary we are negating the need for clients to bring or hire cars, thus greatly reducing emissions and hopefully helping to reduce any traffic congestion. These are often 'Foot transfers' as much of Split, Hvar and Korcula are pedestrianized. We will arrange for a porter or representative to accompany you on the short walk between the hotels and the ferries, helping with the luggage and route finding.
In our UK operations we no longer produce brochures which can require cast reams of paper, and also cuts down on fossil fuel usage required for delivery. All the ‘paperwork’ we will send you will be by email and we urge you to print the minimum you feel you need. We encourage our staff to walk or cycle to the office whenever possible, and participate in a scheme where staff can purchase bicycles and save on some taxes.
PeopleWe provide hotels for our clients to use which provide local employment for their local communities. We provide breakfasts for our guests, but they are left free to choose their own venues for lunches and evening meals, and we encourage them to try the many local restaurants and cafes that line the streets of our destinations. These restaurants are almost all locally owned and run, and their employees are usually very local, if not members of the family, and many of them grow (or catch in the case of fish) much of their own produce, especially cheese, olives, wine and vegetables, which reduces the food miles while helping support the farming and fishing communities on the islands, an important support for their traditional farming way of life.
By using hotels rather than flats or apartments we are not taking up space in the accommodation available to the inhabitants of the towns and ports we visit, reducing pressure on local housing needs.
