CROATIA YOGA CRUISE

8-Day Island Hop Adventure!

This is not your typical touristic cruise—as a private charter we are free to be spontaneous. Explore, adventure, discover hidden beaches, secret coves and charming coastal villages—and do yoga in style aboard a luxurious 8 guest-cabin wooden gulet, equipped with paddle boards, mouth-watering Mediterranean cuisine and sumptuous island-grown wines.

Swim, adventure and luxuriate on our exotic 8-day island hop through the turquoise waters of Croatia!

Flow of the Day

 

MORNINGS arise with the sun and a Hatha-Vinyasa yoga practice on the spacious yoga deck. Imagine Tree Pose gazing into the azure blue of the Adriatic sea! After yoga and a morning swim, we will have breakfast and prepare to set sail or motor (1-3 hours) to our next destination.

AFTERNOONS offer a host of activities on a beautiful island — swimming, snorkeling, paddle-boarding, biking, exploring the exquisite nature and charming seaside villages — or choose to simply lounge and relax on deck with a book. We have a few group excursions planned, but give you plenty of time to choose exactly what kind of activity you’re in the mood for. Some lunches will be on-board, others are on your own in the island villages.

EVENINGS are pure magic as we close our day with sunset yoga and meditation. Some evenings we will dine under the stars on-board; other nights you are on your own or with new friends at a local island restaurant. All cuisine is locally sourced and prepared with traditional recipes of grilled fish, seafood and fresh vegetables. Rock gently to sleep in your cabin or directly on deck under the stars.

9 CABIN GULET

Our Exotic Croatia Yoga Cruise is aboard a luxurious 31-meter custom-built wooden gulet, fully staffed with daily house-keeping, a fabulous chef, bartender, second mate, and of course our captain, Filip!  There are 8 air-conditioned, en-suite guest cabins with twin or queen beds. We have an indoor and outdoor dining, a bar, and a spacious 160-meter upper deck with an optional shade screen perfect for lounging—and practicing yoga!
