Croatia is one of Western Europe’s best-kept secrets: a lush region of coves, forested islands, and its crowning jewel, the walled city of Dubrovnik. This country offers an astounding array of natural and historic wonders to explore and photograph. The riches of historic empires unfold as we follow ancient trails through fertile countryside and along rocky coasts that lead to pristine beaches. We move in step with local life as we make our way through lively fishing villages, bustling markets, and charming hamlets preserved as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The variety of stunning places in Croatia creates a diverse canvas for photographers. The mountains, national parks, red-tiled roof cities, numerous islands, and sunny paradises of the south provide infinite photo opportunities of beautiful city scenes and landscapes.

This tour, created to give maximum insight into all the beauty Croatia holds, travels from the stone walls and ancient streets of Split and Dubrovnik, to the harbor town of Hvar, the sunniest of the isles, to the lakes and waterfalls of the Plitvice National Park, and finally ends in ‘The Second Tuscany,” the Istra Peninsula.

Continue this excursion and discover the “Secret of Slovenia” on our tour extension.
