Day 1 Trogir - Brac

Ever wondered where the stone for the White House in Washington DC came from? It was Pucisca – which is our first overnight stop. We’ll sail there after leaving Trogir harbour at noon. Once we land in one of central Dalmatia’s prettiest towns, the first thing to strike you will be the marble-like glow emanating from all the buildings. This is down to the pure white limestone the area is renowned for, and what many of the world’s best-known landmarks are constructed from. We’ll spend some time watching the master craftsmen at one of the few stonemasonry workshops left in Europe. Then as night falls, we’ll make our way back on board the Vjeko for a welcome dinner. (L, D)

Day 2 Brac - Korcula

This morning we cruise towards the charming Korcula – home to one of the best-preserved medieval walled cities on the Adriatic Coast. Legend has it that Korcula was founded by Trojan hero, Antenor and was the birthplace of the explorer, Marco Polo. It’s easy to sense the rich history behind this island of olive groves, vineyards, and ancient religious ceremonies that are still being performed here. We’ll spend a pleasant afternoon walking around the fascinating Old Town that’s brimming with Renaissance and Gothic architecture. We can then look forward to a leisurely evening, indulging in tasty regional specialities at a rustic konoba, or in a cafe or bar with some delicious Croatian wine on the table. (B, L)

Day 3 Korcula - Mjlet

Superb quality. Subtle. Complex. It’s not surprising that wine is this country’s best-known secret. Something we’re about to experience ourselves in Lumbarda as we stroll through the vineyards to Bire Winery. After sampling a selection of wines in the pleasantly chilled cellar, we’ll sit down for lunch. Then we sail to Polace on Mljet. Set in a secluded bay, and sheltered by the four small islands of Tajnik, Moracnik, Ovrata and Kobrava, this is perhaps the most seductive of all of the Adriatic isles. The north-western part of the island forms Mljet National Park – an unspoilt, tranquil oasis filled with fragrant pine forests, lush flora and spectacular saltwater lakes. After spending the afternoon here, we’ll head back to Polace for some well deserved R&R as we watch the sun sink beneath the waves. (B)

Day 4 Mjlet - Lastovo

Our journey continues today towards Lastovo, fittingly called the Imperial Island by the Romans. Being so remote, very few tourists actually get this far, making it the ultimate Back-Roads stopover. Our mini-coach winds its way up to Hum, to the highest peak on the island, 417 metres above sea level. After soaking up the stunning panoramic views, we then drive to the main town to explore what is now a protected cultural monument due to its unique 15th and 16th century Renaissance architecture. Then it’s back to the Vjeko for the night, moored up in the sandy Jurjevo Cove. The captain will join us for dinner: a sumptuous three-course affair, featuring authentic delicacies made from the freshest local produce. (B, L, D)

Day 5 Lastovo - Vis

Prepare for an early start, as we set off for Vis Island. This isolated spot was closed to tourists for many years, which has led to it becoming a most sought after place – one that perfectly captures the ‘unspoilt Mediterranean’ image. After visiting the atmospheric Green Cave we sail into the town of Komiza for an overnight stay. Famous for its wines, secluded pebble beaches, tropical palms, narrow roads and houses huddled together around the harbour, this old fishing village is a treasure trove of delights. (B, L)

Day 6 Vis - Solta

From the Green to the Blue Cave on Bisevo Island, we’ll sail around the coast to get to this unique natural wonder. Little wooden boats then escort us into its silvery blue depths, ethereally lit by the sun through a crack in the stone. Later on that day, the anchor’s pulled up for Maslinica on the Island of Solta, where we visit a local olive grove to taste different types of olive oils in the warm sun. The evening is then all yours to spend as you wish. (B, L)

Day 7 Solta - Trogir

We spend our last full morning in full relax mode, swimming and snorkelling in the tranquil bays of Solta Island. This afternoon we return to our first port of call, Trogir, one of Croatia’s oldest and most celebrated cities. Greek, Roman and Venetian conquerors have all left their mark on the culture and architecture of this UNESCO World Heritage site. Look forward to a feast of churches, palaces, museums, fortresses and towers, before finishing with a farewell dinner at a local restaurant. (B, L, D)

Day 8 - Trogir

After a hearty breakfast on board, it’s time to say our goodbyes to the Vjeko, her captain and the crew, as our tour finishes this morning. (B)
