For every dad who has spent Father’s Day driving several hours in traffic to enjoy a ‘relaxing’ getaway, perhaps this year he deserves a real vacation. Whether the dad in your life is an adventurer, a culturist or simply in need of a little relaxation, there’s an ideal trip for him on the Adriatic Coast.
These are our top picks for seamless Father’s Day getaways:
For Adventurous Dads: Dalmatian Adventure
Between hiking, rafting, sailing, zip lining and canoeing, adrenaline-seeking dads will find plenty of excitement as they explore the Dalmatian Coast – from Marjan Hill on Split to the Elaphiti Islands. But what they’ll love most is the chance to enjoy all of these thrills without having to pack up the car, drive to each location, rent all the gear and decide on the best trails or part of the river. An on-the-ground concierge, private driver and licensed private guides will take care of all these details so dads can simply enjoy time with the family. Along the way, they’ll stay in luxury hotels with sea-view rooms, eat in open-air markets and see world-renowned landmarks, like Diocletian’s palace and Mostar Bridge.

For Culturist Dads: Small Towns of Croatia
Zadar, Šibenik and Krka may not currently be at the tip of your tongue when you list your favorite cities, but after walking through the narrow, cobblestone streets, gazing at the impressive stone buildings and tasting traditional drniški pršut (smoked ham) among other gourmet specialties, these will be just the first three among several new favorites you’ll discover on Small Towns of Croatia. Aside from the tiny towns, villages and islands where you’ll become immersed in the local culture of Croatia, you’ll also discover some of the country’s most prominent landmarks. Your knowledgeable private driver will take you to Marco Polo’s birth place, the Museum of Icons and the cathedral of St. Mark in Korčula, the Franciscan Monastery and Rector’s Palace, among other landmarks in Dubrovnik, and the renowned Plitvice Lakes National Park and Krka National Park.

For Dads Who Love Good Food: Flavors of Zagreb & Istria
Although you could visit Croatia a dozen times and not have enough time to try every traditional delicacy or regional specialty, the flavors of the North coast are a great place to begin, especially for families. Parents will love tasting the local Žlahtina wine, and kids will love learning to make their new favorite dishes at Croatia’s best restaurants, including grenadir mars (potato pasta), and štrudla od sira (cheese strudel). With every detail taken care of, including activities, accommodations, transfers, drivers and private guides, dads (and moms) can simply relax and enjoy themselves – a real Father’s Day treat.
