Dubrovnik, the “Pearl of the Adriatic”, is a picturesque city on the Dalmatian coast, known for its rich history and culture. The city’s marbled streets, ancient sea fortifications, and the majestic Minc̆eta Fortress are a testament to its past.
On the other hand, the islands of Šipan and Mljet offer a tranquil escape. Mljet, the most forested island in the Adriatic, is a Mediterranean gem full of lush vegetation. It is home to the Mljet National Park, which covers the western part of the island and features two saltwater lakes, Veliko and Malo Jezero, along with a 12th-century monastery.

Ideal times to embark on a walking holiday along the Croatian coast and islands are the shoulder months of May, June, September, and October. During these periods, the climate is optimal for hiking and exploring stunning coastal landscapes. If you’re a fan of swimming, the summer months provide warmer sea temperatures for a refreshing dip. However, the higher temperatures during these months can make walking more strenuous.

However, it is crucial that you inform us of any food restrictions or allergies in advance so we can ensure your needs are met throughout your holiday.

Yes, we strongly recommend booking in advance. Early booking not only secures your spot but also provides you with a wider range of options. Please note that if you book just prior to or during the season, we may not be able to guarantee availability in certain hotels and apartments.
Croatia is well-connected by air, with international airports in major cities like Zagreb, Split, Dubrovnik, and Pula. Alternatively, you can also reach Croatia by train or bus from various European cities, or by car if you’re touring from a neighbouring country. If you’re travelling from a further distance, connecting flights via major European airports are usually available.
If you are able to do a few hours of walking on terrain that doesn’t have many steep climbs, you’ll have no problem on this walking holiday.
What we would recommend is that you start these hikes early in the day. Especially in summer months, the temperatures can climb quite high, making some of the trails less pleasant if tackled too late.
