Duration: from 14 days

Sailing in the Mediterranean is a pretty seriously idyllic way to spend a summer at the best of times, but when you’ve got your whole gap year to do it, what could be better?

European Sailing Adventure

Whether you're looking for relaxed afternoons lazing on the deck of a yacht or time to indulge in the nightlife, this Croatian cruise aims to please. Embark in lovely Dubrovnik and discover charming villages as you sail from island to stunning island on a small yacht. The emphasis is on connecting with the country and culture and you'll fall in love with this region's beauty on hikes to castles and waterfalls. Toss in beach barbecues and snorkelling and you have an incredible and affordable island getaway.

Even better, we'll throw in an Interrail pass, so you can explore your way through Europe before finally ending up on the beautiful Croatian coast to begin your sailing adventure. Really, what more could you want from your European gap year.

Here's the itinerary for your sailing trip just in case you needed even more reason to go:

Day 1 Dubrovnik

Arrival day. Join your group at 2pm for a welcome meeting and safety briefing before beginning your sailing journey at 3pm to Split. Enjoy a nightcap with your crew mates on the boat or head out to explore Dubrovnik by night.

Day 2-7 Adriatic Sea

While travelling the Dalmatian coast by sailboat discover secluded beaches for the perfect beach barbeque. Hike through the national park that inspired Odysseus for years in Mljet. Kayak your way through gorgeous inlets and explore the caves of Korcula. UNESCO World Hertiage sites Dubrovnik and Hvar offer an insight into Croatian culture and architecture. Explore the beaches of Brac as the tide comes in shifting it’s shape before arriving in Split to explore ancient Roman ruins including the Palace of the Emperor Diocletian.

Day 8 Split

Departure day. Trip ends the morning of Day 8. If you would like extra time in Split after your sailing journey is finished, we recommend booking extra time.
