THE TRAVEL YOGI

Croatia Yoga Adventure

Trip in One Word: Resplendent

What You’ll Experience in Croatia 

This yoga retreat in Croatia brings together the best of  Mediterranean life: think sun-soaked coastal hikes, stunning waterfalls, ancient architecture, rolling lavender fields, bucolic olive groves, and the warm culture of coastal paradise. You’ll explore the splendor of Croatia from Split to Dubrovnik—including islands, charming seaside villages, and white-sand beaches in between. Sunrise and sunset, over rustic rooftops or the sparkling Mediterranean, are extraordinary here. Catch a game of picigin and feast on fresh figs, seafood, and local wine amidst the backdrop of sun and sea. Traverse wooden paths connecting emerald pools in Krka National Park and hike to charming villages nestled among a rocky coastline with stunning bays of crystal clear water. Harvest oysters with local fishermen and feast with a local family. Let time slow down through morning and evening yoga sessions and the laidback culture of this beautiful country. Did we mention that sundown on the Adriatic is pure magic?!

How You’ll Experience Croatia 

Start your Croatia adventure on the Dalmatian Coast in Split, the Adriatic’s most stunning seaport. Stroll the city streets with a local guide and visit Diocletian’s Palace, an ancient Roman royal residence. Embark on a private tour of Krka National Park, home to seven stunning waterfalls and a karst phenomenon (a river-carved canyon in limestone). Next up, travel by private boat to Šolta Island, the “island of olives,” and Krknjaši Blue Lagoon. Swim, sunbathe, or relax on the boat—traveler’s choice! In Hvar, marvel at the sweeping views, Cathedral, Venetian piazza, beaches lined with giant agave plants, and cascading lavender fields. (Leave room in your bag for soaps with local lavender or handcrafted lace made by Benedictine nuns.) Hike to and around the charming seaside village of Milna and enjoy a traditional dinner in the 15th century cliff-backed village of Velo Grablje. In Dubrovnik, wander the marble streets among the baroque buildings in this ancient city and wind your way along the romantic ruins of the Benedictine monastery to find your dream swim spot. In each location, your luxury accommodations feature swimming pools, gardens, terraces, views, and fresh, local food. With a wonderful mélange of natural beauty, beaches, monuments, and local culture you’ll experience an authentic version of Croatia—a resilient country with an illustrious and fabled past. 

How You’ll Feel When You Return Home

From impressive waterfalls to untouched pebbled beaches along the coast, this yoga retreat in Croatia is infused with the water and sun. You’ll return home as carefree as if you spent a week walking on water (well, you kind of did)—and beaming from the warmth of the Mediterranean and its people. You’ll dream of eating fresh figs under lemon trees overlooking the sea in the afternoon sun until you find your way back to the Adriatic coast again.
