Island Paradise Dalmatia

Walking along the Croatian coast

Would you like a holiday on idyllic islands on the Adriatic coast? The island paradise of Dalmatia in Croatia not only has the turquoise-blue Mediterranean to offer, but also charming fishing villages. You walk along the coasts and peaks of Brač, Mljet, Korčula and Hvar, always accompanied by the salty breeze of the sea and the scent of cypresses.

Details for a hiking holiday in Dalmatia

The trip starts in Split. From here you take the ferry to the enchanting island of Brač with its dreamy fishing villages and picturesque coast – and from island to island. You hike along pristine beaches and stroll past spectacular viewpoints. In between, the sea in the idyllic bays provides a welcome cool-down.

Tip for pleasure seekers: On day five, a real trip for the senses awaits in Hvar and continues to Korčula. Endless vineyards and unique hiking trails create a holiday atmosphere. A good glass of wine in hand and the glittering sea in front of you: what more could your heart desire?

Highlights of the hiking trip in Dalmatia

  • Split: The second largest city in Croatia is not only the starting point for this eight-day hike, but has also been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979.
  • Sveti Ilija: From the highest mountain on the Croatian Pelješac peninsula you have a fabulous view of the coast of South Dalmatia.
  • Lovely Dubrovnik: Be sure to plan a walk through the old town! Because between the city walls from the 16th century, there is one sight after another.

Interesting facts about the hiking trip in Dalmatia

Off to the Croatian coast – with the sun as your loyal companion. On the eight-day hiking trip, you will be travelling an average of three to six hours a day. From Split to Bol and Milna and to the end point in Dubrovnik you travel over partly rocky and stony terrain.
