Our complete 12-day tour of Croatia includes Dubrovnik, Mljet, Korcula, Hvar & the Plitvice Lakes -- highlighted through photography and basic need-to-know info.
This is the story of our experience in the village of Vela Luka – on the Croatian island of Korčula – where a stranger’s recommendation for good food and music led us to discover a humanitarian cause supporting a community in need.
The locals of Korčula have carved out a little getaway that is relatively unknown to most tourists: the uninhabited island of Proizd. Also known as the Island of Love, Proizd is a day-trip destination that offers silence & sanctuary, just a half hour from the west coast of Korčula.
Mljet – Croatia’s Green Island – is 90% forest, 10% water, and 100% tranquility. If you’re looking for an off-the-beaten-path alternative to some of the more tourist-saturated Croatian islands, look no further than this serene island paradise. Even in mid-July, the island felt empty.
Every year, more than 1 million tourists visit Croatia’s Plitvice Lakes National Park, yet at certain times during our visit, we felt completely alone with nature. Much of that had to do with how we planned our trip. Follow this guide, and beat the crowds in one of the world’s most extraordinary aquatic environments.
