How to visit Vis Hvar Korcula Dubrovnik in 10 days starting from Split? Many travelers have asked me this question in order to plan their holidays visiting these three islands and Dubrovnik.
Many have asked me whether it is compulsory to return to Split after a visit to the island of Vis. The answer is definitely NO.
You can be sure in the continuity of this trip without the unnecessary interruptions. But!
An important detail in the planning of this island hoping travel, is the period when this trip is possible. The period is from June 27th to August 21st 2015. Actually it’s the high season period. To make it possible book both, hotel and catamaran ride, in advance.
Keep in mind that this travel itinerary shouldn’t necessarily take ten days, it can be based on two weeks program, but not scheduled on 7 days basis.
You must be wondering why this trip can’t be arranged in less than 10 days. The main reason for this is island Vis and connections between Vis and Hvar island.
Before I explain this itinerary in more comprehensive way, I have to draw your attention to the fact, that this is only foot passengers itinerary and not for car owners. If you have a car than you should drive from Split to Dubrovnik.
Itinerary Split Vis Hvar Korcula Dubrovnik in 10 or 15 days
If you decide to undertake such a trip, the only critical day on this tour is Tuesday. Why only Tuesday? The answer is very simple as in period from June 27th to August 21st the only connection from Vis to Hvar is on Tuesday.
If you skip this day (Tuesday) you have to go back from Vis to Split to take another catamaran to Hvar town. But in this case you will turn upside-down the whole itinerary, not to mention the additional costs in money and waste of time.
Many visitors have asked me, why I suggest the island of Vis. According to them, it would be better to exclude Vis island from Vis Hvar Korcula Dubrovnik itinerary.
I don’t agree with them. Why? The reason for choosing this island as a perfect escape to Central Dalmatia is the island’s atmosphere, significantly different from the islands of Hvar, Brac and Korcula. Its value are primarily the pristine nature and simplicity of living even through the most chaotic touristic periods.
How much days you intend to stay on each island, depends on you interest and it’s the personal decision that can be applied according personal needs. If you wish you can even add, Mljet island to your itinerary.
Here is my suggestion how to arrange a 10 or more days tour.
Plan to start you trip on Friday or Saturday from Split. Even starting on Sunday is doable but you’ll have only one day on Vis island. Too short!
To get to Vis you have two possibilities. Take a ferry to Vis run by Jadrolinija or Krilo company fast catamaran (recommended). The second shipper will be the main carrier on your islands hoping trip. Book your Krilo trip online!
