The landscape of Split, Dubrovnik and the Islands of South Dalmatia is the subject of myth and legend - it was where the Mljet National Park is today that the siren Calypso is fabled to have kept the Greek hero Odysseus captive for seven years. Today, the mark of centuries of civilisations can still be felt in the beautifully preserved villages and towns of the Adriatic, where this route brings you closer to the history, nature and culture of this truly stunning region. Ancient Roman remains rub shoulders with scenic nature trails, and historic towns, such as the cobbled streets of Korčula, taper off into verdant countryside trails. From visiting Diocletian’s Palace in the city of Split to strolling through the serene settings of Mljet National Park, this walking holiday offers a perfect blend of culture, history and breath-takingly beautiful nature walks.
Your journey includes walks on the islands of the Adriatic as well as a tour of the old town of Dubrovnik, led by an expert local guide. Here, a short boat transfer will take you to the start of your walk from the harbour where you’ll find a wild, yet beautifully preserved environment for walking as you follow a route that links relics of antiquity with charming, traditional villages and stunning natural scenery. This holiday features a walk through the Mljet National Park, the landscape of which is criss-crossed with walking trails, where your route takes you around some of the island’s saltwater lakes. Your route also includes rural walks on Šipan, the largest of the Elafiti Islands. There’s also a day spent exploring the island of Korčula, where you walk from the village of Pupnat, through the countryside to the medieval streets of Korčula town.
Walkers can expect characterful properties, often owned and run by locals, featuring typical cuisine and produce of the area. Even in the smaller towns and cities of Croatia, hotels and B&Bs provide a good standard of modern facilities as well as a warm welcome and friendly service – good hospitality is very much part of the local culture. Island stays are typically more low-key and quieter than the towns and cities, but with the additional benefit of easy access to some of the region’s most spectacular beaches. The sea is never too far out of reach on foot, and a few hours spent unwinding beside the pristine waters of the Adriatic is a great way to top-off a day spent exploring the area.
