The exquisite Dalmatian Islands lie just off the Croatian coastline, resting atop the inviting waters of the Mediterranean Sea. These unique islands offer walkers who visit a diversity of experience and pockets of discovery to relish in, whilst the coastal air supplies a fresh breeze to compliment the blissful Croatian sun; perfect for walking!

We feature the islands of Brač and Hvar, renowned for their relaxed ambience, fantastic local cuisine and wine, intriguing historic cities and towns, and some of the most scenically dramatic walking in Europe, these Dalmatian Islands are the picture perfect destination for a keen walker searching for a spectacular natural beauty.

Your journey begins in the exuberant city of Split, known for mastering the ideal balance between tradition and modernity. A scenic ferry journey brings you to your first Dalmatian Island, Brač (pronounced “Bratch”) encompassing an extensive and fascinating history which provides an excellent window into authentic Croatian Island life. You will notice the limestone and often mountainous scenery where incredible piles of stone were cleared by hand to create usable land, some of which was quarried to build the White House in Washington. Viewpoints are plenty along this trek and simply breath-taking over the sea and neighbouring islands.

Another beautiful ferry crossing brings you to your second Dalmatian Island, Hvar, where vast vineyards, olive groves and lavender fields are abundant alongside your walking trails. There are copious amounts of interesting museums, castles and Roman remains to explore on your journey as well as many swimming opportunities in the incredible clear blue sea. The last of your ferry rides brings you back to Split where you may wish to add extra nights to truly appreciate the culture and architecture of this exciting city, where enticing fresh seafood and local wines can be found around every corner.


The route is mostly along tracks or rural roads; sometimes on paths (some can be rocky due to characteristic limestone). Paths are generally easy to follow and sometimes waymarked and/or signposted however this is variable. Our detailed walk notes will assist you at all times. Our route takes you to some of the best viewpoints on the islands, offers plenty of swimming opportunities and the chance to experience the beautiful, rustic nature of these Croatian Islands. 


Extra Nights

We highly recommend adding extra nights in Split either at the beginning or end of your holiday. Nestled between mountains and sea, this exuberant port city is a pleasure to explore and has just the right balance of tradition and modernity. Visit Diocletian’s Palace (a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the world’s most impressive Roman monuments), as well as various intriguing museums and the wide range of incredible Croatian restaurants within the atmospheric old walls.
