Peter Sommer on foot in Croatia

Historical and cultural specialist Peter Sommer Travels has launched its first Croatian walking and cruising itinerary. The eight-day tour along the southern Dalmatian coast is hosted by archaeologist and historian Dr Helena Tomas and combines cruising aboard a traditional wooden gulet with walks to explore ancient forts, towns and castles.

Highlights include walking atop of a five-kilometre wall at Ston built in the 14th and 15th centuries and navigating a network of paths and tracks on Mljet to take in vistas of the sea, lake, hills and valley. On the island of Hvar guests will explore the Stari Grad Plain, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

On board the gulet there will be plenty of opportunities to anchor and explore the bays, coves and harbours of the Dalmatian coast. The expedition operates from 30 September to 7 October, 2017.
