Relax or choose from our fantastic range of optional excursions.
A full day excursion to discover the gems of the Istrian Peninsula. From the harbour and Roman ruins of Pula, we continue to Rovinj, a delightful resort on the Adriatic. The charming old town is a warren of narrow streets, pretty squares and welcoming cafés overlooking the colourful harbour. We move on to historic Porec, home to a magnificent basilica with beautiful gold mosaics and a great place to watch the boats come and go, or to take a stroll through the old quarter. We then return to Rabac via a traditional farm to sample some of the local produce, including ham, cheese, cakes and a glass or two of local wine.
A full day of stunning scenery amid the glorious lakes and forests of Croatia’s Plitvice National Park, among the most beautiful in Europe. Situated in a valley between forested mountain sides, sixteen beautiful lakes spill into each other forming glittering cascades and thundering waterfalls.
A fun boat trip along the coast to the lovely island of Cres, where we drop anchor in a beautiful bay. This wonderful day out includes a barbecue lunch onboard.
A full day tour to the breathtaking subterranean caverns of the Postojna Caves, carved over thousands of years by the Pivka River. The caves consist of fantastic sculpted galleries, chambers and halls, with incredible stalactites and stalagmites. We then visit the Lipica Stud Farm, established in 1580, where the famous white Lipizzaner horses are bred.
A half day tour to this delightful resort on Kvarner Bay. Its beautifully maintained gardens, fountains and lovely seven mile long coastal promenade known as the Lungomare form a stunning backdrop to the town’s elegant villas, hotels, shops and cafés.
A full day trip by high speed catamaran (high season only, weather permitting) across the Gulf of Venice to experience the sights of this extraordinary Italian city of canals, bridges, palaces and Renaissance architecture. There is nowhere on earth quite like it. Explore St. Mark’s Square, where you will find the Doges’ Palace and the Basilica di San Marco, with its Romanesque carvings and beautiful mosaics. Marvel at the 325ft high Campanile de San Marco, the magnificent bell tower. Take a walk over the Rialto Bridge, one of Venice’s most famous sights located in the heart of the city, an ideal spot to watch the activity of the boats on the Grand Canal below. Enjoy a stroll around the hidden piazzas or perhaps take a romantic gondola ride through the network of canals.
