Imposing Fortresses and Forests

Croatia is everything unexpected. It’s an open history book whose pages reflect turbulent war-torn years, earthquakes and a royal battle for independence. Imposing fortresses and cathedrals, immaculate walled cities and the regal palaces of aristocrats enchant everyone who stands in their shadows. The unearthly national parks, twee marinas and palm-lined promenades and abandoned villages will fill your senses to the brim.


Sink into the Coast and Culture

An Adriatic Island Hop

We hike in two national parks and along a coastline dotted with more than 1,200 islands and islets, island hopping from Hvar to St. Clement to Vis by water taxi, speedboat and catamaran. We wind our way through the marble-tiled alleys and learn to forage for wild mint, rosemary and the ripe fruit of strawberry trees (yes, there is such a thing). Swim in aqua lakes and kayak in the crystal-clear waters of the Adriatic as church bells sound out over the cobbled city and the sun sets on the terracotta rooflines.

I had an absolutely amazing time on this trip, and don’t think I could have hoped for more. The guides were amazing, the itinerary was wonderful, had great luck with weather and the whole vibe of the group. I was very happy with the amazing food and the places that we stayed. I have no complaints and am already planning on which Wild Women trip to do next!”
