Dubrovnik to Hvar sailing holiday
Description of Dubrovnik to Hvar sailing holiday
This Dubrovnik to Hvar sailing holiday, or Hvar to Dubrovnik depending on the dates that you choose, comprises of four nights on board a catamaran that sleeps maximum eight people. The itinerary is one that will appeal to those who like being active outdoors not just lying on deck sunbathing, although there will be plenty of time for that too!
As well as the magnificent city of Dubrovnik, with its dramatically located medieval walled city overlooking the Adriatic, the adventures of this holiday begin once we start exploring the region’s Elaphiti and Central Dalmatian Islands. Mljet Island is Croatia’s only marine National Park and, with the help of local guides, you can explore by bike with its wooded interior and two rather unique seawater lakes.
Each island is very different on this trip, Korcula boasting its own ancient fortified centre, traditional houses and even a Gothic-Renaissance cathedral. As well as the obligatory pine forests, secret coves and vineyards, making it a great place to take a hike or a bike.
Hvar Island attracts a rather chic set but beyond the main town you can discover fishing towns such as Stari Grad or Vrboska. Paddle board or swim here, or simply enjoy sailing around its stunning shorelines and nearby Pakleni Islands archipelago. Along with great Croatian food, wine, sunshine and sumptuous seas, this promises to be five days that will feel like a fortnight.
Please note that the minimum age on this trip is eight years old when accompanied by an adult. Single use rooms/cabins are available upon request with a 25% surcharge.

PlanetSafety is our first concern: while we take pride in offering "off the beaten path" holidays, we do make sure to stick with routes we are 100% sure are safe, even for families with children. Our employees have helped map and lay out trails which we use today on Kolocep island. We believe sticking to these hiking trails is very important, as it keeps our guests safe, as well as preserves the environment and leaves it undisturbed.
On our trips we bike on paved roads only, walk and hike on existing paths and ask our guests not to feed, fish, hunt and disturb animals.
Our company strives to promote types of tourism where use of motor vehicles is minimal. We are proud of the beauties Croatia has to offer and of the fact that we were the first to combine them with activities and offer to public. We encourage you to travel on foot, by bike, kayak, canoe, raft or sailboat. Our motto is - take only pictures, leave only footprints.
PeopleBy booking this trip you bring much needed income to the people who are still recovering from the war-torn years, as this was the area severely affected by war. This trip ensures that the local people benefit as much as possible in the form of jobs (we employ local guides and drivers) and provision of accommodation (we use family owned hotels or home stays with local family). We also use local transfer services, buy food from the small farms and work on developing responsible waste management by stimulating waste recycle.
By buying local products you are supporting this country’s economy and helping Croatia to stand on her feet again! We consider it our responsibility to lead efforts to maintain and preserve the integrity of this fledgling sector by petitioning the introduction of tighter controls over the use of the country’s natural resources.
As a company, we support the local community by building camps in partnership with local families, building bridges and accesses to the rivers. In order to preserve traventine barriers on Zrmanja River we have built wooden detour bridges. We also support an orphan bear shelter in Kutarevo.
