TREK TIPS:

CROATIA

Croatia has 2000km of idyllic and ruggedly beautiful coastline in the Adriatic sea. Sail through the turquoise waters among hundreds of islands rich with Roman ruins, small coastal villages, and unique architecture. Explore the southern Dalmatian islands, the Peljesac Peninsula, and many other beautiful places. Bask in the sun, dive into clear warm waters, and enjoy a slower pace of life on the water.

GREECE

Explore the Greek Isles, where the iconic whitewashed villages tower over you, and mythology and history blend together into a magical journey. There is a reason sailing has been part of Greek life for ages; it’s the best way to travel along the coast and explore ancient ruins, visit villages and enjoy secluded islands. Stay in crystal clear bays, enjoy the warm breeze in your hair, as you enjoy the pristine beauty of the ocean and the lively culture of coastal villages.

TURKEY

Turkey’s exotic coastline is teeming with beauty, including magnificent ancient ruins, from the ancient Lycian city of Tlos to the beautiful town of Gocek, the Fethiye Rock Tombs and more. You will find yourself in awe as you explore these historic sites. Sail through Mediterranean Fjords and into secluded coves with opal waters, where you can bask in the hot sun and swim in the clear waters. Enjoy fresh meals onboard as well as in coastal towns. This adventure is one you’ll never forget!

HUMAN OUTREACH PROJECT

One of World Wide Trekking’s founding principles is giving back to the places we travel. Through our sister non-profit, Human Outreach Project, we are making a difference in lives around the globe, and connecting trekkers with voluntourism opportunities in local communities.

Although we don’t have projects in this part of the world, there are always opportunities to get involved and find a meaningful way to engage with the local community. We would love to talk to you about custom voluntourism and humanitarian opportunities that you can incorporate into your WWTrek trip. The find out more, go to HumanOutreachProject.org or contact us.

TRIP NOTES

Best Time of Year to Visit:

Late spring to early fall (March – October) is the sailing season in the Mediterranean. We prefer spring and fall over summer due to smaller crowds and lighter winds.

Customs, Visas, & Immigration:

U.S. Citizens are not required to obtain a visa for travel in Croatia or Greece. To travel to Turkey you will need an e-Visa, your WWTrek trip manager will make sure all these details are taken care of before your trip.

You will need a passport valid for more than six months after your trip. Make two copies of your passport. Leave one at home and bring the other with you in case of an emergency. Ensure you provide a color copy of your passport to WWTrek, 90-days prior to your departure date. Always carry two extra passport photos when you travel.

Travel Insurance:

We recommend purchasing travel insurance, which will protect you in the event of an unanticipated cancellation of your trip, and depending on the plan you choose, can refund all the costs already paid (including flights, trip costs, and your payment to us). Please note: you must purchase this plan within 14 days of your deposit payment. There are three plans that we recommend choosing from: Cavalry, Rip Cord or Harbor. Please send us a copy of your plan if you choose to purchase one.

Gratuities:

In many parts of the world, gratuities are given in appreciation for a job well done. Our guides will take care of tipping most service personnel along the way, but you should plan on having a small amount of cash on hand for incidental tips.

For any additional services outside of our itinerary, plan to tip 10% (transport, restaurants, baggage, lodges, etc). We will provide you with detailed tipping recommendations in your “What to Expect” document once you sign up for a trip.

At the trails end you will have the opportunity to contribute to a group tipping pool that will be presented to your WWTrekking guides and trekking staff as we say our goodbyes.
