IslandsEscapes by Goway added Croatia to its portfolio in 2016 and this year, Croatia has been one of Goway’s hottest summer destinations for North Americans. According to Croatia Week, tourism is up 18% for the first seven months of this year, compared to the year prior.
According to Mike Bertoia, Goway Islands Product Manager, “Croatia has so much to offer. In terms of nature it has stunning coastlines, pristine beaches, eight national parks and eight UNESCO World heritage sites to explore. It’s safe to visit, English is widely spoken and it offers fantastic food and wine, and charming towns.”
Its natural beauty has been picked up internationally. Croatia has been the location for many of the Kingdoms appearing in the wildly popular TV show, Game of Thrones.
Two of Goway’s Island destination experts explored this destination in May, citing Croatia as a destination they would “go back to in a heartbeat.” Their personal travel experience is shared here.
The demand for Croatia is not showing any signs of decline but finding space can be challenging, especially for last minute travellers. Cruising is one of the best ways to explore the rugged scenery of the Dalmatian coastline, and Goway’s 8 day Croatia Captured Cruise from Spilt to Split has been a best-seller. Goway has guaranteed allotment on select partnered cruises.
Goway recommends booking early, at least six months in advance. July and August are the peak times to visit as many European travellers are on vacation and these months offer warm, sunny weather. The months of May, September, and October are a great consideration with plenty of sunshine and generally lower prices and less crowds.
