  • Overview
    Starts at



    9 days

    Activity Level


    Active trips revolve around multi-sport activities that keep your family outside and having fun! Your family will spend more time interacting with the elements and exploring than sitting on a beach or inside of a museum. These activities are not always physically demanding but they can be and do require a basic level of fitness.

    6 breakfasts, 6 lunches, 7 dinners

    Croatia is a place where turquoise water caresses medieval stone walls, and robust fortresses look out upon the sea and bright blue sky. On this family vacation we’ll explore hidden cave beaches, brilliant lakes bordered by mountains, and towns where Gothic chapels coexist with the ruins of 4th-century Roman palaces.

    Recommended Age: 8+

    Experience the Melting Pot of Croatia

    Croatia is at the crossroads of Mediterranean, Balkan, and Central European cultures that together create a beautiful culture.

    On a speedboat, we’ll cruise to gorgeous islands for delicious lunch, beach relaxing, and swimming and snorkeling in the pristine Adriatic.
