11-day Dubrovnik to Bosnia Croatia Sail + Tour
Every Tuesday from June to September 2019
 
DUBROVNIK - KORCULA - HVAR - SPLIT - KRAVICA WATERFALLS - MOSTAR - SARAJEVO - BJELASNICA MOUNTAIN - BLAGAJ - TREBINJE
 
This combination of shorter Croatia Sail + Bosnia tour is completely unique to us - we are the ONLY company operating shorter Croatia sails AND tours that really explore Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The 5-day one-way cruise starts in Dubrovnik and spends the first night there. The next 3 days are all about Korcula, Hvar and Split - the best places for combining sightseeing with the best restaurants, bars and nightlife. Right after Split we leave for Bosnia - a packed itinerary that features Mostar, Sarajevo, lakes, rivers, mountains and more
.
 
The itinerary is designed to give you the best of all worlds: sightseeing, swimming, hiking, wine-tasting and relaxing, with excursion options, nights out, and events in the late afternoons and evenings.
 
With our experienced, fun crew, like-minded tour-mates (aged between 18-39) an amazing ensuite boat, Croatian cruise leader, small tour sizes, and a knowledgeable Bosnian guide you are in the right hands for the trip of a lifetime! 
 
The full itinerary for your Dubrovnik to Bosnia sail+tour is below.

Day 1

Dubrovnik

Official check-in is from 5pm onwards but you can arrive to the boat earlier, leave your bags onboard and choose from the many activities happening in Dubrovnik that day.

We recommend: (1) Doing the awesome buggy safari - you are taken to Mount Srd to get a bird's eye view of the Old City and Elaphite Isles before driving an off-road buggy around the mountain. Unmissable!

(2)Taking a cable car ride up to Mount Srd for the most incredible view imaginable (note: buggy trip takes you past same cable car station for same view). 

(3) Dubrovnik is also the setting for the capital city of Westeros, Kings Landing, in Game of Thrones. If you are a fan, why not take a walking tour of the locations of the most famous scenes in the ultra-popular show and get an overview of the history of Dubrovnik at the same time?

(4)  Take a shuttle boat over to Lokrum Island from the Old City. 

Dinner is served onboard at 6.30pm, when you will also be given your welcome speech and be introduced to everybody else on board. The evening is yours to enjoy in the Old City. Overnight on the boat in Dubrovnik (Gruz Port).


Optional excursions: Buggy Safari and/or Game of Thrones+Dubrovnik Walking Tour.

Day 2

Dubrovnik to Korcula

It's goodbye to Dubrovnik and hello to more incredible scenery as we head to Korcula Island, which is said to be the birthplace of Marco Polo. We are spoilt for choice with swimming spots en route before we dock near the Old City (with the same name as the island). This pocket town is another gem which hosts a street party in the evening at the Deja Vu Bar!

Optional excursion: Wine-tasting

Day 3

Korcula to Hvar Island

Hvar is rated as one of the highlights of the trip and it's not hard to see why. Its quaint harbour is a thing of beauty but you only get to truly appreciate it after climbing up to the fort that overlooks everything in the bay.
We arrive after lunch but often we are not able to dock until late afternoon until due to port restrictions. We strongly recommend taking a water taxi over to the city to get there earlier (3 - 4 Euros per person payable directly to the taxi).
Hvar's nightlife is also legendary and nothing beats catching the sunset at Hula Hula bar, then taking the organised shuttle boat over to Carpe Diem - the famous "club on an island".

Day 4

Hvar Island to Split

Our final, full day starts with a swim stop at one of the many Pakleni Islands near Hvar and continues as we cruise past Brac Island on the way to Dalmatia's largest city: Split.
In the afternoon we dock back into Split, with enough time to take in some of the inspiring sights of this city, including Diocletian's Palace and Bacvice Beach.

Overnight Split.

Day 5

Split to Kravica Waterfalls and Mostar

After breakfast breakfast it is time to say goodbye to your shipmates and crew. Check-out from the boat is by 9am and then it's onto Bosnia!

Your Go Croatia Sail representative will provide you with a ticket for the 9.30am bus from Split Bus Station that crosses the Croatian-Bosnian border. You will leave the bus just over the border in Capljina, where your Go Bosnia guide will be waiting for you with the main tour vehicle, ready to take you to Kravica Waterfalls (entrance included).

The most striking feature of Kravice Waterfalls is not only the sheer breadth and number of cascades, but the opportunity to swim in and jump around the pools – it is literally a natural water-fun park! You can also grab a light lunch here – there are small cafes here serving simple dishes.

We reach Mostar in the late afternoon, with time to check in to our accommodation and have a quick orientation walk with your tour leader. We then have the evening free to enjoy dinner, the nightlife and be blown away by how this beautiful city looks at night. Overnight Mostar.

Day 6

Mostar - WHOLE DAY

After breakfast, you have a choice of either exploring the city on your own (your tour leader can recommend the main museums and attractions to visit) or choose to do the Mostar Walking Tour (16 Euros). This tour starts at 10am and is 2 hrs long. It includes a local, English-speaking guide and covers the Old City areas. After the tour, there are many highlights to explore on your own, such as the Old bridge museum, where you can choose to actually get inside the famous bridge.

See full details on the excursions page.
Overnight Mostar.
Mostar bridge and bosnian cookery
 
Day 7

Mostar to Konjic to Sarajevo

We leave Mostar early this morning to reach Konjic about an hour later as there are different options for adventure in this region:

Rafting on the famous Neretva River (40 Euros): Konjic is famous for Rafting and the Neretva is a breath-taking river to do it on. The rafting experience (including BBQ stop!) lasts about 3.5 hrs and is lower intermediate-level, perfect for both first-timers and those who have rafted before.

OR

Plunge pool hike (FREE): A short hike up to a natural beauty spot that features a plunge pool. Jump in if you fancy it - the water's so inviting!

See full details on the excursions page. Please note that only one excursion can be chosen on this day as they run at the same time.

After our Konjic adventures, we arrive in Sarajevo in the evening, which gives us enough time to check in, grab some dinner and then (if you have enough energy), go out to experience some Sarajevan nightlife!
Overnight Sarajevo.

Day 8

Sarajevo - WHOLE DAY

Breakfast is served from 8.30am and then the rest of the day is free to explore Sarajevo City as we wish. It is the tour leader’s day off but he can give us plenty of tips and a map for the day as there is so much to see in Sarajevo! Highlights include the Turkish Quarter, the bazaars, eternal flame, the Sebilj fountain, the brewery bar etc.

2 optional excursions that can BOTH be done on the day: (1) There is the option of getting a fascinating, in-depth walking tour of this incredible city with a local guide. Leaves at 10am and lasts about 2.5 hrs (12 Eur per person).

(2) Bosnian Cooking Class (35 Euros): HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! This excursion starts with pick-up around 1pm from Sarajevo and continues until 6pm (sometimes longer!). This experience is consistently rated as the ultimate experience on the tour. Bosnian cuisine is tasty, filling and fun to make! Create local specialities such as japrak, dolma and 2 kinds of pastry pies (cheese and potato). Then get stuck in and eat your mouth-watering creations! Also includes salad, home-made organic wine, juice and mezze. See full details on the excursions page.
Overnight Sarajevo.
Sebilj and Mosque in Sarajevo
 
Day 9

Sarajevo Tunnel and Bjelasnica Mountain

So far, we have travelled from Croatia’s Mediterranean coast, to the rivers and lakes of Herzegovina, and finished in Sarajevo city. Today we head for Bosnia’s mountains!

After breakfast we head for Sarajevo’s most famous attraction – the War Tunnel, which is close to the main airport. Your tour leader will run through how important this tunnel and its museum was to the survival of Sarajevo. During our visit we will get a chance to see footage from the conflict, see the ration packs used by those enduring the siege and pass through the last remaining section of the tunnel that was dug in secret under the airport

We then leave for Bjelasnica mountain to visit Lukomir, which is truly one of the “frozen in time” experiences that touches visitors to this magical country. We have a light hike (15 to 20 mins) around the village and a nearby peak before returning to our mountain hotel accommodation
.
Overnight on the mountain.
Bjelasnica and Lukomir
 
Day 10

Blagaj and Trebinje

In the morning, we depart the mountain and drive back towards Herzegovina, stopping in breathtaking Blagaj, home to a Dervish monastery next to the source of a river that literally bursts from the base of a mountain. The setting is so stunning, you won't believe it's real! We are proud to include this highlight that most Bosnia tours miss out.Having had breakfast, we depart the mountain in the morning and start our journey to Montenegro, stopping for lunch on the way. The drive through Montenegro's rugged landscape is rated as one of the most scenic in Europe.

Blagaj is one of the best places in Herzegovina to grab lunch as the location is so spectacular. We then head for Trebinje for a stop near the town that everyone seems to love: wine-tasting! This tasting session is included and we arriving in Trebinje town in the late afternoon, having had our eyes and taste-buds spoilt all day.

Overnight Trebinje.
Sarajevo Tunnel and Zabljak Zipline
 
Day 11

Trebinje

After breakfast, the tour officially finishes. But your adventure does not need to stop here!

Trebinje is well-connected by bus to Dubrovnik (less than 1 hour away), Kotor and Budva (Montenegro), Tivat (for Montenegro's main coastal airport), Belgrade (Serbia) and beyond.

Q: What time does the boat depart from Dubrovnik on day 1 (Tuesday)?
A: Official check-in is from 5pm (noon), but the boat remains in Dubrovnik overnight so you can arrive earlier or later on that day. Access to your cabin will be from 5pm onwards and you have dinner included onboard on day 1 at 6.30pm! If you arrive early, you can leave your bag onboard and explore Dubrovnik or do one of the optional excursions, such as buggy safari or Game of Thrones+Dubrovnik Tour.
Q: What time does the sail finish in Split?
A: The boat docks into Split on Friday afternoon and then overnights in Split. Breakfast is then from 7.30am to 8.30am on the Saturday and check-out must then be completed by 9am. You then jump onto the local bus from Split to Capljina (Bosnia) at 9.30am (tickets provided) at the Split Bus Station, which is close to the port where your boat will be docked. Your Go Croatia Sail representative will ensure that you catch this bus all fine.
Q: What are the sleeping arrangements in the boat cabins?
A: Most of our cabins can be suited to couples who would prefer a double, or twin beds (2 separate beds) for friends who don't wish to share a bed. Please let us know your preference in advance - we can't always match your preference but we try to as best we can according to the configuration of travellers.
Q: What about triple cabins, for 3 friends in one cabin?
A: Three friends can share one cabin - 1 person in a separate bed and 2 in a double bed. There is a 10% discount on each passenger's space for triple-sharing.
Q: What is the arrangement for solo travellers on the boat?
A: Solo travellers would have to share a cabin with another solo traveller or third person from another group. We try to match people up according to gender, but this is not always possible due to passenger configurations. There is always the option of a single supplement as well (see below).
Q: If I don't want to share my cabin, can I pay a single supplement?
A: Yes, you can pay a single supplement. Our single supplement is 50% extra. You must book your single cabin in advance.
Q: What are the bathroom arrangements on the boat? Is there air-con?
A: Every cabin has its own ensuite bathroom as standard. There is an air-conditioning unit in each cabin that runs overnight from 10.30pm to 9.30am.
Q: What is the difference between above deck and below deck cabins?
A: Above deck is on the main deck and lower deck is in the hull of the boat. There are advantages and disadvantages to both - lower deck cabins are often cooler and more peaceful at night as you do not have other passengers walking past your cabin as much as the above deck cabins. Above deck cabins are brighter with more natural ventilation and most open out onto the sea.
Q: What food is included on the sail?
A: You will have 2 meals everyday which consists of a continental breakfast (bread, spreads, with varieties of fruit, yoghurt, eggs, sausages etc throughout the week), and 3-course lunch (soup to start, followed by meat/fish/pasta/rice dish and a dessert). The only exception to this is that DINNER is included on the check-in day (Tuesday).
Q: What if I am vegetarian or have other special dietary requirements, how can you help me?
A: Please tell us about your special dietary requirements before your cruise starts and our onboard chef will do their best to cater for them.
Q: Can I bring my own food and drink on board?
A: You can't bring your own food on board, apart from for special dietary requirements. This also applied to drink: drinks are not allowed to be brought on board (including water) as the boat runs its own bar (on a tab system). Unlimited drinking water is provided for FREE.
Q:Can I pay for my bar tab by credit card?
A: Our boats do not have card facilities onboard. All payments for your bar tab can be made only by cash locally on your last day before you check out of the boat. The cash payment can be done in Croatian Kuna, Euro, or a mixture of the two.
Q:How many people will be on my boat?
A: Between 25 to 38 passengers, with 3 or 4 crew members.
Q:What nationalities and ages are on board?
A: Most of our guests are aged between 18 and 39, with the majority falling in the twenties and early thirties bracket. They are from English-speaking countries (UK, Ireland, Australia, NZ, South Africa, Canada, USA), EU countries (mostly Western Europe) and others such as Israel and Brazil.
Q:What if I miss, or am going to be late for the boat's departure from Dubrovnik?
A: This is unlikely to happen as the boat overnights on the first night in Dubrovnik. However, if something unforeseen happens, please let us know as soon as you can and we will advise you on where to catch up with the boat in Korcula.
Q:How much spending money should I bring?
A: Personal spending money amounts obviously vary from person to person but as a general rule around Euro 25 to Euro 30 per day can cover additional meals and optional entrances.
Q: Do I have to have any insurance?
A: We strongly recommend taking out travel insurance before you go.
Q: Are there any power sockets on board?
A: Our boats have power sockets in the cabins and in the salon area. They are European 2-pin sockets so don't forget your adaptors if you need them!
Q: How do I get to Dubrovnik?
A: We have a whole page on our website dedicated to getting to Croatia and Dubrovnik. Please click on it here.
Q: Are there towels provided on board?
A: Some bathroom towels are provided but you should definitely bring your own beach towels.
Q: What time does the Go Bosnia tour depart from Split?
A: Check out from your boat is 9am on the Saturday. The bus for Bosnia then departs at 9.30am.
Q: Is the Bosnia tour fully led all the way through?
A: Yes, you will have a Bosnian/English-speaking tour leader to take you through from Croatia to Herzegovina to Bosnia to Montenegro. He will have a day off on the Tuesday, but you can book a separate tour guide for that day. By law, he can orientate you around every destination, but is not allowed to give you an in-depth guided walk around Mostar either, but there is also the option of a walking tour of the old city there.
Q: I am a solo traveller or in a couple - if I don't want to share a dorm, can I pay a double/single supplement?
A: Yes, you can pay a double or single supplement - please email us for prices. You must also book your single cabin and rooms in advance.
Q: What food is included?
A: Breakfasts are included every morning.
Q: What if I am vegetarian or have other special dietary requirements, how can you help me?
A: You should tell us about your special dietary requirements before your tour starts and we can ensure that the breakfasts are more suited to your requirements.
Q:Can I leave the tour in Sarajevo?
A: Yes, you can. The price would then be £70 less.
Q: Are there towels provided?
A: You will be provided with bathroom towels at the accommodation. However, you should definitely bring your own beach towel for swim stops at places such as Kravica Waterfalls.
