See South Dalmatia from every angle on this scenic tour, cruising from island to island on a spacious motor yacht. Each island has unique appeal, whether it’s purple lavender fields and wild herbs, or Spanish castles and marble sculptures.

Enjoy undulating terrain and climb a few quiet roads to take in widescreen views across scattered islands and look forward to down-hill rides towards cool blue waters. To make the up-hill sections a bit easier, opt for an electric bike. For an extra adventure, try river rafting on the Cetina River or take it easy with more time relaxing on deck. The twisting streets and Renaissance squares of Dalmatia’s towns make historic spots for an evening drink – be sure to try the local wines.
