Country Walkers’ 10-day tour of Croatia really digs into the natural and cultural history of the Dalmatian Coast with the addition of pre- and post-excursion extensions.

Pre-tour, participants will spend one night in Split, where they will have a chance to visit the city’s ancient Roman ruins. Highlights of the walking tour include Roman ruins such as the palace of Emperor Diocletian, the olive groves and 16th century Pustinja Blaca monastery on the island of Brac and the ancient Spanjola Fortress and lavender fields of Hvar.

Post-tour, the excursion concludes with a one-night stay in the walled city of Dubrovnik. The walks are considered easy to moderate, with an average of four to six miles a day on terrain that varies from paved streets to uneven single-track trails.

Dates: May 14-24, May 22-June 1, June 11-21, Sept. 3-13, Sept. 17-27 and Oct. 1-11.


Price: From $6,088, double occupancy, for the tour and extensions; single supplement $910. Includes international round-trip airfare from LAX, all accommodations, all overseas transfers, guided walking tours, breakfasts and tour-only inclusions.
