First stop is Drvenik, a small village that lies in two bays surrounded by the beautiful mountain range of Biokovo. Enjoy lunch here and catch a ferry to the next stop, Sucuraj, the smallest town on the island of Hvar, which has been referred to as the queen of the Croatian Dalmatian islands. The economy here is largely based on tourism, farming, vineyards, olive growing and the cultivation of rosemary and lavender. That said, the first stop on the island is Bogomolie for an olive oil tasting.

The next day on the island is spent exploring the aromatic hills of rosemary and lavender via Jeep safari. Later, depart Hvar by ferry for the city of Split, Croatia’s second largest city known for its beaches and the fortress-like complex at its center. Explore the city and spend one night in Split.

Before returning to Dubrovnik on the final day, visit Trogir, a gorgeous town set within medieval walls on a tiny island. It is linked by bridges to both the mainland and to another island Čiovo Island. Enjoy lunch and the views before heading back to the ship.
