As you sail along the Istrian Peninsula, stop in a romantic town of Rovinj. Feel its past times as you walk around the Old town’s cobbled narrow streets, winding at the foot of the Church of St. Euphamia, the favorite gathering place of artists from around the world. Continue sailing to the Brijuni National Park, once the personal State Summer Residence of President Marshal Josip Broz Tito.

Day 3: Mali Losinj – Susak – Olib

Morning visit of Mali Losinj, located in the island with the same name. Thanks to its mild climate, pinewoods and air, the island of Mali Losinj is an ideal place to recreate your body and spirit. Lunch aboard, while continuing our journey towards Susak for time at leisure or swimming. In the afternoon, cruise towards the sandy island of Olib, overgrown by black pine. As there are no cars on the island, it is a favorite destination for boaters and sailors. Olib has a lovely little fort, the remains of the monastery and the Church of the Assumption of Mary, where you can see a document written in the Glagolitic script – the alphabet in which Croatian was first written. Enjoy dinner in a local restaurant. Tonight, we set our compass south, to Zadar. (B, L, D)

Day 4: Zadar – Krka NP – Sibenik

After breakfast, enjoy a sightseeing tour of Zadar, a city of exceptional history and rich cultural heritage. Zadar historical center is a compact pedestrian zone, perfect to explore on foot. Set out on a walking tour and admire the old walls built in 16th century by Venetians as a defense from Turks. You will also see the 16th century Port Gate where the Venetian lion still guards the entrance, the Square of the Five Wells, Church of St. Donat, the Roman Forum and the largest cathedral in Dalmatia, St. Anastasia. Return to the ship and enjoy your lunch, while sailing to Vodice. Next up is Krka National Park, with its magnificent waterfalls. After your visit here, coach to Sibenik where your yacht is anchored. Your evening is at leisure in town. During the night, continue sailing to Split. (B, L)

Day 5: Split – Hvar

Welcome to Split! Start the day with a walking tour, featuring the historic inner city built around the Roman Emperor Diocletian’s Palace, UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site. See the remnants of Split’s Roman heritage, its Renaissance and Gothic structures, Jupiter’s Temple and the Cathedral. Board your ship for lunch, and cruise towards Hvar, Croatia’s sunniest island. Hvar is a favorite holiday destination for international celebrities and yachters; thus, beyond all the glitz and glamour, Hvar town is a charming seaside resort with 8 centuries of architecture waiting to be explored. On a walking tour breathe in the pine-scented breeze, as you absorb vistas of the old town with the picturesque little streets and the first public theatre in Europe. For the rest of the day, keep this as your point of reference before exploring the labyrinth of backstreets of town, pop into craft shops, cafes and restaurants, tucked into old Venetian palaces. Tonight, the clear waters of the Adriatic will bring us to our next destination: Korcula. (B, L)

Enjoy breakfast on board, before we discover the walled city with local guide.

"Sadly like many people our holiday for five people was cancelled due to Covid-19. The date of our holiday meant it was on, then off, then on and finally off again. Throughout all this I can't fault how Akin and his team dealt with all the hassle at a most difficult time for his company.  The refund was dealt with swiftly and our party can only thank everyone for all their help."  Mr Brian Chappell - 2 Jun 2020

"Our holiday in Turkey exceeded our expectations. Cappadocia was interesting and beautiful. It was exciting staying in cave. Istanbul was amazing. We had very little previous experience of Turkey and Turkish people, so we enjoyed the beauty of the country and friendly hospitality of the people. We felt safe and not at all threatened in the city. The quality of food and service in restaurants was good. Efes beer is very tasty."  Mr David Hyam
