Stunning islands and the historic cities of Split, Trogir and Dubrovnik
If you only go to Croatia once, then go south. With stunning architecture and arguably some of the best scenery in Europe, the Dalmatian Coast is truly unique.
This is a relaxed week taking in the best of this striking coastal region. We start by exploring the UNESCO cities of Split and nearby Trogir, before sampling island life on beautiful Korcula, the reputed birthplace of Marco Polo.
From our base in Korcula town we can wander through the winding back streets, visit the museums and sample the excellent local wines. We swim in the clear Adriatic and enjoy a daywalk through peaceful meadows and woodlands, as well as taking a boat trip to Mljet National Park.
We complete our trip with three nights in Dubrovnik, arguably the most perfectly preserved Renaissance town in the world, with a jumble of narrow streets and red-tiled roofs tucked tightly within the city walls.
What makes this trip responsible?
Tourism can be a real help to local communities, providing income, positive cultural exchanges and a financial incentive to protect their natural environment. Ours is a 'total approach' to responsible tourism, covering everything from the way we plan and operate our trips to the practices of Exodus as a company.
We use local leaders who are committed to responsible tourism and helping to preserve the way of life in their area. Our leaders have recently taken part in our leader training which also highlights the importance of operating our tours in a responsible way. Our local operator uses small family run hotels and restaurants which are all staffed locally and the produce used is sourced from local markets and farms. The hotel and restaurant staff are always very welcoming and provide an excellent opportunity for you to learn more about the local culture, customs and cuisine.
