Croatia Itinerary Suggestions

Jump to last reply

I'll be traveling around Europe this summer beginning August 6th until some yet undetermined day in mid-September. My girlfriend is flying out to meet me during the mid-point of the trip and joining -- she has 10 nights. We chose to meet in Croatia and are working on our itinerary and were hoping for some guidance from the community.

Option 1 (With Plitvice)
26th Arrive Dubrovnik (Afternoon) Overnight DBV
27th - Explore Dubrovnik Overnight DBV
28th - Day trip Mostar or Montenegro Overnight DBV
29th - Elafiti Islands via Kayak tour Overnight DBV
30th - Bus to Split (cpl of hrs) - ferry hvar - Overnight Hvar
31st - Hvar Day Overnight Hvar
1st - Hvar Day Overnight Hvar
2nd - Ferry to split; flight to Zagreb Overnight Zagreb
3rd - Day trip to Plitvice National Park Overnight Zagreb
4th - Fly to DBV Overnight DBV
5th - Depart DBV

Option 2 (Without Plitvice)
26th in Dubrovnik - Overnight DBV
27th - Explore Dubrovnik - Overnight DBV
28th - Day trip Mostar or Montenegro - Overnight DBV
29th - Elafiti Islands with Tammy - Overnight DBV
30th - Ferry to Hvar (via Korcula perhaps overnight Korcula?) Overnight Hvar
31st - Hvar Day Overnight Hvar
1st - Hvar Day Overnight Hvar
2nd - Ferry to split Overnight Split
3rd - Split Day Overnight Split
4th - Bus to DBV Overnight DBV
5th - Depart DBV

I've read mixed things about Split -- some people seem to like it, others have said 2 hours for Diocletian Palace and then move on. Not sure if there's a consensus.

If we decide against Plitvice, how else would you utilize time on the back-end if Split isn't worth 1.5 days and 2 nights?

As far as option 1 is concerned, we might have to give up a night in Hvar and stay in Split to be able to get to the airport in time for the flight to Zagreb if that changes the calculus on whether or not to try for Plitvice.

Do these seem like good options or are we way off base here?

Any and all suggestions are welcome. Thanks in advance!
