Wellness & Luxury in the Adriatic

For anyone seeking a relaxing retreat after tax season or the stress of an endless winter, Adriatic Luxury Journeys, a bespoke private guided and small group tour operator to Croatia, Slovenia, Bosnia, Montenegro, Italy and Albania, has introduced Wellness Journeys, a collection of rejuvenating itineraries designed to relieve stress while showcasing the stunning scenery, vibrant culture, and rich history of the Adriatic Coast.

Wellness Journeys’ first two custom tours feature restorative yoga sessions at scenic locations with well-known Croatian instructors, sailing excursions off the coast of Vis, and sightseeing through historic landmarks, along with spa treatments and private wine tastings.

As a signature small group tour, Yoga in Croatia is available over select dates. Each tour is open to a maximum of 12 guests for a personalised, intimate experience. Combining yoga, traditional spa treatments, massage, and local farm-fresh delicacies, the Yoga in Croatia tour takes travellers through the rolling hills of the Istrian peninsula, the crystalline waters of Plitvice Lakes National Park, and the cultural landmarks of Split, Hvar, and Dubrovnik. In addition to perfecting your yoga practice with a well-known instructor, you’ll walk through Pula, the most well-preserved Roman amphitheater in the world, sail through the Blue Cave and Green Cave (so named for their dazzling natural light shows), and experience life as a Roman emperor, if you choose, in Split with the Diocletian Four-Handed Massage. You’ll also become immersed in the culture and history of the Adriatic, with a visit to the 1,000-year-old St. Nicholas monastery, the Church of St. Lawrence, and the bridge of Mostar in Bosnia. Ten days from From US$3,295 per person.

The Escape to Korčula & Vis, a private journey, offers flexible dates and group sizes. Set on two of Croatia’s most relaxing islands, Escape to Korčula & Vis erases the stress of daily life with awe-inspiring natural wonders, tastings of Croatia’s finest wine, and relaxing spa treatments, as well as inspiring yoga sessions with a well-known Croatian instructor and native of Korčula. You’ll explore the lush forests and lagoons of Mljet, an island said to have seduced Odysseus for seven years, hike the footsteps of Illyrian tribes to the highest point of Vis, and learn what makes Croatia’s wine so distinct at local family-owned vineyards. You’ll also travel 1,000 years back in time to the era of open-sea fishermen with an excursion in a traditional wooden gajeta fishing boat. Out on the Adriatic Sea, in between gourmet meals and relaxing yoga sessions, you may just forget the meaning of the word “stress” altogether. Nine days from US$3,095 per person.

As with all tours by Adriatic Luxury Journeys, both experiences can be fully customised to a group’s personal interests, tastes, and travel goals. All tours include accommodation at luxurious hotels carefully selected for both service and location (all five-star when available), guided tours led by licensed English-speaking locals, and one of Adriatic Luxury Journeys’ private chauffeurs ensures seamless transitions between cities, villages, and national parks. www.AdriaticLuxury.com
