Meet us in the marble city of Split for a weekend full of sun and adventure on the Dalmatian Coast!
Head across the Adriatic to untouched Croatia. Raft down the emerald-green Cetina River, wander through the marble ruins of Diocletian’s Palace and sail the Dalmatian Coast to discover the beautiful beaches at the Blue Lagoon.
This tour meets on Thursday night after 16:00 at our accommodation in Split and ends on Sunday. Transportation to Split and transfer from the airport is not included.
For the Meet us There Trip, you’ll arrive at your accommodation by Thursday evening. Luggage storage will be available for those of you arriving before 16:00 and you can check in at the reception desk.
The rest of the group will be traveling by bus through the night and will be arriving Friday morning, so you will meet with your tour leader at breakfast on Friday morning.
You have all day to explore Split and its surrounding areas. We have optional adventure activities on Friday that you’re able to sign-up for (additional cost): a river rafting trip on the Cetina River or a zip-lining activity through the lush valleys near Omiš.
If you choose not to join any of the outdoor adventures, you can spend your day laying out on one of Split’s beaches, go on a walking tour of the Split city center, visit Diocletian’s Palace, rent a bike and ride up Marjan Hill or take a day trip to local surrounding towns, like Omiš.
Friday night there is an optional group welcome dinner. After dinner head out on the optional pub crawl (additional cost) to experience the best of Split’s bustling nightlife. You’ll meet your Trip Leader in the lobby if you are interested in joining the pub crawl. If you choose not to join the pub crawl, the night is free to explore Split’s many restaurants and pubs or to stroll along the Riva waterfront.
Saturday we set sail for a full-day private island cruise (optional) where we’ll visit Blue Lagoon. Enjoy an included lunch between snorkeling and sunbathing before heading to Copacabana Beach where you are free to enjoy the stunning beaches, sip seaside cocktails, or swim in the Adriatic. We’ll arrive back in Split around 18:30.
Saturday night your Trip Leader can provide you with recommendations for dinner or a night out on the town
