The Escorted Motorhome Tour

Come with us on a tour of Croatia and experience a country of dramatic mountainous landscapes and dreamy deep-blue seascapes. Croatia’s rocky stretch of Adriatic coast is astoundingly beautiful with its numerous small pebble coves backed by pinewoods leading to the crystal-clear turquoise sea. Croatia boasts 7 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including the historic centres of Dubrovnik and Split, the cathedrals in Trogir and Sibenik and the basilica in Porec, all of which can be visited during the tour. We will also have the opportunity to walk through the Plitvice Lakes National Park, Croatia’s top natural attraction. This glorious expanse of forested hills and 16 crystalline lakes that tumble into each other via a series of waterfalls and cascades is exquisitely scenic, so much so that in 1979 it also became a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This combination of timeless unspoilt nature coupled with beautifully preserved centuries-old architecture and a lively contemporary cultural scene, promises rewarding memories for anyone who decides to join our tour.
