1 night Ljubljana Slovenia staying at the Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel
Ljubljana is Slovenia's capital and largest city. It's known for its university population and green spaces, including expansive Tivoli Park. The curving Ljubljanica River, lined with outdoor cafes, divides the city's old town from its commercial hub. Ljubljana has many museums, including the National Museum of Slovenia, displaying historic exhibitions, and the Museum of Modern Art, home to 20th-century Slovene paintings and sculptures
9 nights Lake Bohinj staying at Hotel Jezero
Lake Bohinj is situated at the edge of Slovenia’s only national park – Triglav National Park. Only a two hour bus ride from Ljubljana, it is a quiet lake set among the peaks of the Julian Alps. While it might be best known for skiing, in the summer, the dozens of hiking trails that sprout from various points around its shores draw outdoors enthusiasts from around the region. Outdoor activities abound; swimming, boating, cycling, paragliding and hiking. The hiking trails near Lake Bohinj vary in degree of difficulty.
1 night in Split Croatia staying at the Radisson Blu Resort
Split, Croatia is a UNESCO World Heritage city and bases the city centre in and around the stunning Diocletian's Palace, the Roman emperor Diocletian’s retirement palace from 295-305 AD. Stroll through the palace basement filled with market stalls and outside experience the historical architecture of this beautiful palace that consists of 220 buildings within its boundaries and is home to 3,000 people. Split is now the second largest city in Croatia and continues to grow every year with numerous, cafe bars and traditional Dalmatian restaurants.
7 nights on ship.
We will board our premium 38 passenger ship in Split, Croatia. You can travel around in Croatia in many ways but the best is undoubtedly at sea onboard a small ship, the size and flexibility allowing access to otherwise hidden fishing villages, coastal towns, coves and beaches. On this cruise we sail from island to island, and each day take a new and exciting route through Croatia’s unique landscape, where we will enjoy many amazing views and experience small island communities and well-preserved historic monuments. The mellow rusts and golds of ancient walls and historic churches set off the dramatic green of cypress groves and contrast with the sparkling blue of quiet bays and shimmering lagoons.
The hiking trips are guided and we have enough time each day to finish the routes for all different experiences depending on the group dynamic. If you don’t feel up to hiking or feel a particular day may be too strenuous, you can always choose to sit back and spend the day swimming or relaxing on the ship. Some days are longer than others and technically harder. However, the average hiking is around 10 – 18 km per day across varied terrain. An experienced local guide will be on hand every step of the way leading throughout the trip to show us the best of the island treasures.
3 nights in Dubrovnik.
Bus from Split to Dubrovnik, we will arrive in the afternoon. Dubrovnik’s old town is wonderfully captivating with its 1,940m long 15th century stone walls built to protect the city from invasion. It is highly recommended to walk around the walls to grasp the diverse nature of this city. Walk along the Stradun, the promenade inside the old city walls and meander the alleyways to discover numerous local restaurants, shops and bars. We will arrange a Dubrovnik walking tour to learn about this wonderful city.
Cost for the 3 weeks includes all 4 star accommodation, ship cruise island to island, transfers from Ljubljana to Dubrovnik, all breakfasts, lunches on islands, most dinners , $3500 approx.
