Fly to Croatia, and upon arrival, meet your Newmarket Tour Manager and transfer to Lapad Bay and your chosen hotel. Take a stroll in this delightful area, with its wooded pathways and waterfront promenades, before dinner is served this evening.
A free day to explore your beautiful surroundings and to relax in the hotel. Take a stroll in the shaded woods, soak up the sun on the beach, or perhaps pursue one of the more energetic water activities.
Discover the stunning, walled city of Dubrovnik on today's included excursion. See the Old Town, bustling Luza Square, and the magnificent St Blaise's Church on the guided, walking tour. Then look out on Dubrovnik from the city walls and enjoy an afternoon sightseeing or shopping at leisure, before returning to the hotel for dinner.
Today you'll travel through the wildlife paradise of the River Neretva delta and the narrowing river gorge, into Bosnia-Herzegovina and historic Mostar. Wander the restored streets and visit the 17th-century Koski Mehmed pasa Mosque, or perhaps purchase some local craftware at the colourful market, before returning to the hotel for dinner.
Journey south today to beautiful Montenegro. See the spectacular Bay of Kotor - Southern Europe's largest fjord, explore the UNESCO World Heritage site of Kotor itself, and visit Budva, one of the oldest settlements in the Adriatic, and now a picturesque and thriving holiday resort with beautiful beaches and stunning surroundings.
Sail to the offshore Elaphiti - or 'Deer Islands'- on today's included cruise excursion. Discover the sandy beach of tiny Kolocep, and perhaps - depending on the captain's decision - neighbouring Lopud, former watering hole of Dubrovnik's nobility. We'll return to the hotel in time for a farewell dinner.
Another free day to enjoy all the delights of your hotel and its surroundings.
We leave Croatia and transfer to the airport for the return flight, at the end of an unforgettable holiday.
The above itinerary is based on Monday arrivals. For Sunday arrivals, excursions will take place on the following days: Dubrovnik tour on Day Three, Mostar on Day Five, Montenegro on Day Six, and Elaphiti cruise on Day Seven.
Hotel transfer times
The transfer time from the airport to your hotel is approximately 40 minutes.
Combining hotel transfers
We sometimes need to combine transfers to and from your hotel. We always try to keep any wait to a minimum, but you may be asked to wait at the airport for up to an hour, while other incoming flights arrive, before the transfer to your hotel. Similarly, we may need to transfer you back to the airport up to three hours before your flight home departs.
If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.
The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair or electric scooter, please let us know as soon as possible so that appropriate arrangements can be made.
Occasionally, for operational reasons, we may have to change the order of the excursions on your holiday. The final day-by-day itinerary will be confirmed on your Final Travel Documents, which you will receive approximately three weeks prior to your departure.
