explore the city & gather for games

After a two full days of activities, Day 3 is designed for relaxation and reflection. Feel free to "get lost" and indulge in Split's beauty, history, and art. Hike up Marjan Hill for one of the best Mediterranean views around. We'll re-group in the evening for togetherness, games, and snacks. Get better acquainted with your fellow travelers before we say goodbye to Split! 

Day 4

head to the island of hvar

We're on the move and hitting the beach! On Day 4, we'll take the ferry to the island of Hvar, a true fairy-tale destination. We'll explore our temporary home and cap off the evening with a "family dinner" in a quiet village off the beaten path.

Day 6

welcome to dubrovnik!

With more than its fair share of historic buildings, architecture, and ancient walls, Dubrovnik is a dream. Make a few Game of Thrones side trips and take the day to explore to your heart's content. We'll set you up with a map of our favorite spots, but this is the perfect place to get a little lost.

If you're looking for some solo time or a side trip with your new friends, this is your day. Go back for seconds at your favorite restaurants or stumble across new hidden treasures. We'll gather back at our Dubrovnik hostel for drinks to share a few stories and talk about what we discovered.
