The Route: Yachting for 12 days in a 95-foot motor-powered sailboat from Split to Dubrovnik via the islands of Brac, Hvar, Korcula, and Vis, with island hikes and visits to medieval villages and remote Adriatic beaches.

When to go: September

Difficulty: Easy

Travel advisory: Though UN peacekeepers still patrol the streets only 50 miles from the Dalmatian coast, this area has remained relatively untouched by the chaos of the most recent Balkan conflict.

High/low points:

  • Visiting Marco Polo’s childhood home on the island of Korcula.
  • Attempting to swallow your first rubbery bite of river eel.
