This holiday is a combination of our one week holiday Dubrovnik Coast & Islands and our one week holiday in The Bay of Kotor.

The Adriatic, glistening seas, fantastic walking and steeped in history. Everything you could want from a well-rounded two weeks.

As you wander through Dubrovnik’s perfectly preserved medieval streets and up and down the narrow, cobbled alleyways, a sense of history seeps into your senses allowing your imagination to take flight.

A walled city of intriguing narrow streets, squares and fine buildings in a spectacular setting. Its monumental walls, towers and fortresses cradle a unique historical and architectural heritage in a 21st century city. By cable car we soar higher above the city to the summit of Mount Srd where from the top we are offered panoramic views of the city below, to the bays beyond, across to the Elafiti Islands and into the Adriatic.

Described by many as the high point of any holiday to Dubrovnik the Elafiti Islands are but a short boat journey away. The traditionally relaxed way of Adriatic life can be experienced on these small, hilly and forested islands. Walk through the scented pine woods on islands of Koločep, Lopud and Šipan to open vistas across land and sea.

After we finish our first week in Croatia it’s time to head onto the charming Bay of Kotor, Montenegro. 

Although it is one of the youngest countries in the world, it is steeped in history stretching back millennia. Having seceded from Serbia after the Balkans conflict in the 90s, prosperity has returned. Our hotel is set in the picturesque fjordside town of Tivat with Kotor old town and it walls not far away. With enticing walking opportunities in the hills behind the town, we are ideally situated for a great holiday. 

On our week’s walking programme we will explore the local hills, the Lovćen National Park and the skyline of the Bay of Kotor, southern Europe’s deepest fjord, which offers world class scenery. We walk the zig-zag trail of Vrmac Mountain where we can enjoy views of both Kotor and Tivat’s breathtaking fjords.  We will spend time in the labyrinth streets of Kotor’s magnificent old town, a UNESCO world heritage site, walk its ramparts and take a boat trip to further explore the fjords.    

We stay in the town of Tivat. The harbour still remains but pleasure yachts now float where the sailing ships once traded. Here we are directly on the coast of Kotor bay and the views from the hotel are simply wonderful and you could easily confuse the town for Monaco.
