8 nights in Croatia in September

Jump to last reply

After years of talking about it, I'm finally going.

I enjoyed the Backroads - Norway hiking adventure of last July so much I am going with that tour company again. I made some nice friends on that trip and one couple travels at every opportunity - every US holiday finds them somewhere - and after back and forth emails we settled on the Dalmatian Coast hiking trip to meet up.

This will be 8 nights, of which three are on my own. The tour starts in Dubrovnik and I'll be landing one day early to wander off my jetlag, there... and ends in Split which means the last two nights will be in Split - the tour with Backroads ends Friday at lunch and then two nights on my own/with friends before an early flight Sunday morning.

Dubrovnik/Konvale first day including hike
Peljesac Peninsula for a hike second day
Korcula/Vela Luka the next day (hike) and boat to Hvar where we sleep.
Two nights in Hvar including at least one hike along the coast
Brac Island the final night (more hiking)
Travel to Split final morning before we disburse.

This will mean 1.5 days in Split to do whatever. Diocletian's palace Friday afternoon for certain. In my shoes, would you just stay and explore Split all day Saturday or would you attempt anything else outside of Split on Saturday? What would be the top things you'd want to see in Split after the palace?

I think Plitvice Lakes will be out of the question, that's just too much travel time. I'd have to stay an extra day to do that, and even then it would be a hike.

No matter what, this will mean many more photos!

Thanks.
