Choose from two stunning routes via Split or Dubrovnik.
Day 1: Split to Šolta
Checking in after 2pm at Split harbour you will sail to the modest, peaceful and serene island of Solta. From the fishing village of Maslinica at one end to the limestone village of Gornje Selo you can explore it all. Here, a pioneer winemaker called Vicko Kastelanac shifted his attention from fine olive oils to even finer wines. This is the godfather of Dobricic, the varietal parent - alongside Crljenak ("Original Zin") - of Dalmatia's most bought wine, Plavac Mali.
Dinner will be at Kastelanac winery and where you will also enjoy tastings.
Day 2: Brač & Hvar
Sail to Brac - the largest island in Dalmatia and the third largest in the Adriatic - where its beauty will leave you speechless. Sail by the breathtaking Zlatni Rat where you can go swimming and relax while indulging in the famous local cuisine and wine.
From here you will go to the luxury island of Hvar which is continuously voted among the most beautiful islands in the world where the rich and famous like to dock and live the dream life. This is your chance to join them!
While on Bol, you will get a wine tasting at Jako-Vino before dinner at Zuvela.
Day 3: Pakleni Islands
The Pakleni Islands are quite possibly the most beautiful part of the Croatian Riviera, let alone the Hvar Riviera. You will sail alongside islands submerged in clear blue sea with several beaches, deserted bays and countless hidden coves.
For over a hundred years the Palmižana restaurant has been famous for serving fresh and healthy sea specialties. Nearly every yacht sailing the Southern Adriatic comes here to enjoy the specialties of local cuisine and fine island wines at the Meneghello restaurants on Palmižana with their stunning settings looking over the bay.
You will be lucky enough to overnight in the beautiful Vinogradisce Bay.
Day 4: Vis
