Day 1 Trogir - Split - Trogir

Your adventure will begin in fitting style in Trogir. After touring the town centre we’ll journey to Split, a UNESCO World Heritage-listed city beside the azure Adriatic. Here, our trail will take us into the white walls of Diocletian’s Palace, a vast fortress filled with years of history. We’ll also take in the Grgur Ninski Statue and the Cathedral and Bell Tower of St Domnius before taking a seat at a family-owned tavern for an authentic meal – and warm Croatian welcome. (D)

Day 2 Trogir – Krka National Park – Trogir

This morning will see us seeking the crystalline lakes and energetic rivers of Krka National Park. Then, it’s onwards to a hidden treasure: the Bibich Winery, where we’ll enjoy an afternoon of pure indulgence. At this small family-owned establishment we’ll learn the history of winemaking in the region while being treated to local wines and gourmet tapas. We’ll round off our day with free time to relax back in Trogir. (B)

Day 3 Trogir – Korčula

Today we’ll catch the ferry from Split to Korčula – our home for the next two nights. Reputed to be the birthplace of Marco Polo, it’s hard to see why he would’ve wanted to leave. After checking into our hotel, we’ll get our bearings with a walk through the Old Town – and before the day is over, there’s time to enjoy a dinner and a local cooking class. (B,D)

Day 4 Korčula

Today you can wake in your own time, knowing you have the whole day to spend as you wish. You can lounge at a nearby beach, or find a café and get to know the local cuisine. If you’re in the mood for exploration, you can even hop aboard a taxi boat to Vrnik. (B)

Day 5 Korčula - Pelješac Peninsula - Kotor

After bidding farewell to Korčula, we’ll set sail to the nearby Pelješac Peninsula – a hotspot for winemaking since the days of the Roman Empire. We’ll savour the fruits of this ancient tradition on a tour of a local winery, before we leave Croatia briefly for a night in Montenegro. Kotor Bay is a soul-stirring sight – and at the centre lies UNESCO World Heritage-listed Kotor town, seemingly untouched by time. (B, D)

Day 6 Kotor - Dubrovnik

This morning we’ll delve into Kotor’s history, wandering through cobbled streets and exploring the Cathedral of St Tryphon and the picture-perfect harbour. After stopping off in charming Perast, we’ll board a boat out into the Bay of Kotor to the gorgeous island of Our Lady of the Rocks. While here, we’ll explore the intriguing Byzantinestyle church, before heading back to dry land. (B)

Day 7 Dubrovnik

A guided tour of Dubrovnik will take us into the Old Town, where we’ll see top-drawer sites including the Franciscan Monastery, Sponza Palace, the Cathedral of Our Lady and the Old Port. If the weather is on our side, we’ll take the opportunity to climb Mount Srd by cable car. Tonight, there’s a final included dinner to enjoy together. (B,D)

Day 8 - Dubrovnik - Elaphite Islands - Dubrovnik

Our last day will see us visit the Elaphiti archipelago before returning to Dubrovnik, where our tour ends. (B,L)

This tour can be combined with Croatian Islands Sailing. Call for details.

Why Back-Roads Touring?

Smaller groups of up to 18

With a maximum group size of 18 people on Europe tours (22 on French barge tours) and 14 people on Asia tours, Back Roads pride themselves on ensuring that each guest has a personalised holiday experience.

Mini-Coaches

On the vast majority of tours we travel by Mercedes or Mercedes Vito mini-coaches, equipped with comfortable seats, air-conditioning and large windows for enjoying the view. With the flexibility to go anywhere a car can, we take the smaller roads through beautiful scenery and get right to the heart of tiny villages and buzzing cities.
Along the way, your Tour Leader can offer intriguing insights about the views we see over the onboard PA system. And, with long drives kept to a minimum, you’ll have plenty of time to stretch your legs and explore sites for yourself.

Scenic back roads not motorways

Winding country lanes. Coastal beauty spots. Breathtaking mountain passes. With luxury mini-coaches that take us along scenic roads beyond the reach of large vehicles, the journey is as much a part of the adventure as the destination.

Authentic Local Experiences

Truly getting to know a destination means stepping off the typical tourist trail. From hidden-gem attractions to local favourites, we take time to seek out genuine experiences that take you to the heart of each spectacular region.

Culinary Discoveries

One of the most enjoyable ways to experience a different culture is to sample the cuisine. From visits to local producers to food and wine tastings and even cooking lessons, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to discover new flavours.

Hand Picked Boutique Accommodation

Whether it’s a classic country inn or an elegant chateau, each day’s journey ends in a hotel with plenty of character. We opt for accommodation that reflects the personality of the local area, and fits right in with its surroundings.

Leisurely Paced Travel

Forget sunrise starts and long days hopping on and off the bus. We rarely leave before 8.30am and give each stop the attention it deserves – keeping long drives to a minimum. And giving you plenty of time to explore at your own pace.
