The Croatia Experience

Split + Bol + Hvar + Vis + Korčula + Trstenik + Dubrovnik

There aren’t very many places in the world where you can travel on an ultra-luxe cruise, have a daily buffet & four-course lunch, your own private DJ spinning for Day Parties on the boat with your favorite beat, and a stop here and there to jump right in and explore the sea.

Join us on our 8-day luxury adventure in Croatia and experience the country’s nature and culture on a deeper level than you thought was possible. You can’t call yourself a beach lover until you have experienced the crystal clear beaches for yourself. Check out our client photos at #UITALCroatia.

Do you hear that? That’s the sound of your favorite beat filling your ears as you sip a drink on the rooftop hot tub in the middle of the sea. Imagine pulling to shore in our quadruple deck boat only to visit the most exotic cities of the Adriatic.

And you didn’t come snatched for anything! The pics you will snap of your melanin poppin’ in front of the sunniest beaches in the region, day parties on a new modern yacht, and the main filming location of King’s Landing on Game of Thrones… but don’t worry, you are the only royalty on this incredible seaward cruise and expect to be treated as such.

Whether you are soaking it in on your carefree and relaxing day on the beach, shopping, or dancing the afternoon away at the local beach clubs, the amazing landscapes will make you feel blessed to experience the beauty of the Adriatic Sea.

Priceless moments with new friends, historical exploration, and pampered relaxation await on your Up in the Air Life journey through Croatia.

THIS TRIP IS NOT FOR YOU, IF:

Day 1

Welcome to Croatia.

Arrive in Split (SPU) and get whisked to the mega yacht. After settling in your cabin with a private en suite bathroom, we’ll enjoy a guided tour of the city in the early evening before dinner. 

Split is a historic town under UNESCO protection and part of the world heritage. One can find an abundance of Roman architecture in Split – of particular interest is the magnificent Diocletian palace, once inhabited by a Roman Emperor. 

After the tour of Split, let’s return to the ship for a welcome reception and cocktail to meet everyone and enjoy music and a sumptuous gourmet spread as we overnight in Split.

Day 2

Today we’ll sail from Split to the picturesque town of Bol. Imagine looking out onto the most crystal clear water on an inlet with a warm pebble beach: Paradise. 

Take your time to soak in the beauty of Bol, perhaps enjoying a leisurely beach stroll or indulging in a wine-tasting session onboard.

After a satisfying lunch onboard, we’ll continue our journey to Hvar, the longest and sunniest island in the Adriatic. It is known for its lavish lavender fields and breathtaking beauty. Join us for a guided walking tour of Hvar, discovering its hidden treasures.

We will host a sunset party at one of the most famous beach bars in town, with finger food and bubbly flowing for a couple of hours. Hvar offers an abundance of entertainment in the evening – numerous restaurants, bars, and cafes are open long into the night for you as we overnight in the port.

Day 3

Brace yourself for a day of awe-inspiring natural wonders as we set sail to explore the famed Blue Cave. Marvel at the ethereal beauty of its azure waters and shimmering light, a spectacle that promises to leave you speechless.

Following this enchanting experience, indulge in a leisurely lunch onboard as we make our way to the captivating Vis Island.

Here, amidst its unspoiled beauty and tranquil surroundings, the day is yours to craft as you please.

Whether embarking on a wine-tasting journey through the island’s vineyards or venturing out on a thrilling moped excursion, Vis Island offers endless opportunities for exploration and relaxation.

Day 4

Get ready for an early morning departure as we sail towards Korčula island, best known as the birthplace of Marco Polo, and stop for lunch in one of the secluded bays en route.

In the afternoon, we’ll get on an exciting Buggy safari tour around the island, soaking in the views and riding alongside the beaches where locals and tourists hang out to enjoy the Adriatic sun.

As the sun sets on the Dalmatian coast, we’ll enjoy exquisite cocktails and a delectable dinner at a local restaurant.

Day 5

Embrace the tranquility of Trstenik, a hidden gem nestled amidst rolling vineyards and azure waters.

Here, time seems to stand still as you immerse yourself in the simple pleasures of village life. Indulge in a leisurely village dinner, savoring the flavors of traditional Croatian cuisine amidst the rustic charm of your surroundings.

Later, as we continue our voyage towards Dubrovnik, be prepared to be mesmerized by the breathtaking coastal vistas that unfold before you.

Let the gentle rhythm of the waves and the salty sea breeze soothe your soul as you revel in the serenity of the Adriatic.

Day 6

Wake up to a lavish breakfast on the boat before heading to our Old Town guided tour. The well-preserved buildings makes the city an open-air history museum. You will have the opportunity to take the best pictures of the town of Dubrovnik. 

Some buildings remained from the time, with a larger part of monuments belonging to the modest Renaissance architecture with some traces of the Gothic style. 

After the tour, get back to the boat for lunch or head to one of the multiple award-winning restaurants in town. The evening is yours to explore the nightlife in Dubrovnik.

Immerse yourself in Dubrovnik’s vibrant nightlife in an optional experience at Club Revelin.

Day 7

The day is yours to explore the ancient preserved town of Dubrovnik, known from the TV show Game of Thrones. Dubrovnik is a city in southern Croatia fronting the Adriatic Sea, encircled by a massive stone wall completed in the 16th Century, where we’ll take a select cruise alongside the old city walls learning the history of the city.

The day is yours to explore Dubrovnik at your own pace or join an optional Game of Thrones tour. Explore iconic filming locations, unravel behind-the-scenes anecdotes, and delve into the magic of Westeros within a compact, captivating timeframe.

In the evening, gather for a heartfelt farewell dinner, reminiscing about our Croatian escapades and forging lasting memories.

Day 8

Enjoy your last morning on the boat with another delicious breakfast, and say your last goodbyes to the crew and all your new friends!
