Activity code: CRIH03
Duration: 12 Days
Island Hopping in the northwest of Croatia is an emerging treat, utilising the new, excellent ferry connections you can visit some of the lesser-known but most beautiful islands. The holiday itinerary would be pleasantly "book-ended" with stays in Pula and Zadar. Our suggested islands are Cres, Krk, Rab and Pag.
This holiday can be done on a simple self-drive basis where we will supply all driving details, sightseeing suggestions and ferry information or, if you don't fancy driving on your holiday then we have the perfect solution; this Adriatic Island Hopping Holiday can be arranged with pre-booked private transfers between all the islands and your hotels as well as the ferry tickets.
Start in Pula where you can stay in the old city surrounded by the remnants of Roman occupation and just a short walk from the magnificent amphitheatre. From Pula you can easily visit nearby Rovinj or the Brijuni Islands prior to embarking on your island hopping odyssey.
First stop is one of the largest but least visited islands, Cres; here we recommend a couple of nights in the beautiful small resort of Martinscica. Afterwards, your odyssey continues with short hops to Krk Island and Rab Island where we suggest staying in a small hotel in the histroric main towns. Your final island would be a brief stop on the incredible Pag island with its unique landscapes, this would be the last ferry hop as the journey onwards to Zadar will exit Pag Island via its impressive bridge.
At the end of your holiday spend a few days in Zadar exploring the old town, taking a boat trip or admiring the views from the park overlooking the old harbour. Whether you are looking for historical sightseeing, sea-based activities, walking, traditional food (or fine dining) or taking in some spa treatments we will advise which islands and hotels would work best for you.
