10/10 Classical heritage in South Dalmatia

Go cruising and cycling between landmarks, idyllic islands, historic towns and secluded beaches with Freedom Treks. The first historic stop of the tour brings families to the Croatian harbour town of Hvar where they will experience a tour of the renaissance square and late-gothic palaces and a hike to the hilltop Spanish fortress. Another notable historic stop on the tour includes the Stari Grad heritage site, first populated by the Greeks in 384BC and originally named Faros.

Book it: Freedom Treks offers a seven-night Family Adventure Cruise through South Dalmatia in Croatia (starting 27 July 2019) which costs from £987 per person based on four people sharing a cabin including four days full-board catering and three days half-board catering. Cycle equipment hire, flight and transfers extra.
