In the morning, we set sail towards the island of Vis. With lunch on board and a swim stop along the way, we arrive in Vis in the early afternoon.

Vis was once an important Yugoslav naval base and was closed to the public for years. Due to this isolation, Vis has a distinctive charm that feels like you’re stepping into a faraway time, making it one of our favorite stops. Here, you are in for a real treat with an optional visit a unique winery with a fascinating story and location. Their wines are top quality and some of the best in Croatia.

In town, feel free to explore Vis at your leisure. We recommend visiting the Archaeological Museum located in the old Austrian fort Gospina Batarija (Batteria della Madonna). Dinner on your own in one of Vis Town’s charming restaurants.

Overnight in Vis.

*Please note that the Blue Cave is only accessible with small boats through an entrance just 1.5m high so it is unfortunately easily made inaccessible by bad weather and high waves.

We’ll head back to the mainland now and arrive to Trogir after lunch, where we will board a bus to take us to the National Park Krka. Krka is one of Croatia’s most famous and picturesque national parks. The waterfalls and crystal clear waters are most impressive making this stop a client favorite.

After, we’ll head to a small village to the home of a local prosciutto maker. Enjoy a delicious home-cooked dinner in his family home and get to know what the Croatian culture is all about.

Overnight in Trogir.
