Croatia Land and Sea Singles Vacation
September 7th - 18th, 2021 - NEXT MONTH!
SUPERFABULICIOUS MEMBERS RECEIVE $50 ALL THIS TRIP!!
Here's a trip we've now had several times that's been a big hit so we've been asked to repeat it. You will love the ship and the itinerary. We will be cruising the Dalmatian Islands with a new island every day. One thing I really love about the style of this cruise is that the islands are not far away, all the cruising is done in the morning finished typically by early afternoon. Then the ship stays docked and we are free to explore the different islands. Dinner is not included, which I also like, since half the fun of exploring these islands is finding an interesting restaurant and integrating with the locals. You can make your way back to the ship at any time.

Thursday, September 9th - PLITVICE NATIONAL PARK
This park is INCREDIBLE!! This park is a renowned Croatian landmark. There you will be able to witness the immense beauty of lakes which constitute a National Park. Plitvice Lakes are Croatia’s first contribution to the UNESCO’s List of World Natural Heritage enlisted in 1979 and one of the Europe's most beautiful nature parks situated in the mountainous region of Lika.

Friday, September 10th- BIOGRAD
Today we will enjoy a relaxing morning in Biograd. It was first mentioned as a Croatia town in the 10th century. Once the town of coronation of Croatian kings, today is a strong and modern tourist center and the seat of the eponymous Riviera.
In the afternoon we will arrange a tour of the nearby town of Zadar including the Roman Forum from the 1st century, St. Donatus Church from the 9th century, magnificent monument of Romanesque architecture

Saturday, September 11th - BIOGRAD - SPLIT
On our way to Split we will make a stop in Trogir, a wonderful city with 2300 years of tradition. It is a town-museum in the very meaning of the world. Its rich culture developed under the influence of Greeks, Romans and Venetians. Trogir is also listed among UNESCO’s World Cultural Heritage Sites and here you will visit St. Lawrence Cathedral. Split is not only an urban, cultural and traffic center of Dalmatia with road and sea connections to Dalmatia’s numerous summer resorts, but a city with 1700-year old tradition, a variety of archeological, historical and cultural monuments and the warmth of a modern Mediterranean town.

7 NIGHTS - SPLIT-DUBROVIK DALMATIAN ISLAND CRUISE
We will have the fabulous MS Rhapsody the next 7-nights. This is an exclusive charter! All 20 cabins to ourselves! You will absolutely love this! This is our 3rd Croatia cruise and it's an amazing trip. Each day we have a different stop along the Damatian Island chain. Dinners are not generally included to give us time at each stop to wander and enjoy the towns. The passages are only a few hours each morning and are very enjoyable. Then we meet our guide for a short walking tour and then set you lose to explore.

This ship is brand new and it’s luxurious atmosphere perpetuates its tradition as an exclusive yacht, with its stately and compelling lines, superior construction and comprehensive facilities for the guests. The MS Rhapsody is extra spacious with air-conditioned cabins, a pool on the stern and a jacuzzi on the deck, a comfortable salon, lounge bar, an outdoor covered sitting area as well as a sunny deck together with carefully chosen and experienced six members crew and our cruise manager will make your cruise unforgettable.

SCANDINAVIA SINGLES VACATION

Online event

10-nights deluxe hotels, 2 Fjord Cruises, Domestic Air,
Deluxe Motor Coaches and Tours - Just $2,750*
*Does not include international air

MEMBERS OF SUPERFABULIOUS HIKING RECEIVES $50 OFF THIS TRIP!!

Here's a trip that we did back in 2013 that we've been waiting to repeat. We're not making any changes since our itinerary was amazing. If you've been wanting to visit Scandinavia here's your trip.

This 10-day trip will take us from Stockholm, Sweden to the best Fjords of Norway with plenty to see in between. We will have group air in the months to come from LAX to Stockholm, Sweden where we have the next 3-days to tour and explore.

Stockholm, one of the most beautiful capitals in the world, is built on 14 islands connected by 57 bridges. The beautiful buildings, the greenery, the fresh air and the proximity to the water are distinctive traits of this city.

Then we will fly to Oslo, Norway.

Oslo is located innermost in the 100-kilometre-long Oslofjord, which is home to 40 islands. Over half of the municipality of Oslo is covered by forests and parks, making Oslo a truly green city. Oslo hosted the 1952 Winter Olympics and the 2011 FIS Nordic World Ski Championships. Top attractions in Oslo include Vigelandsparken Sculpture Park, the Opera House, and the Holmenkollen Ski Jump. The scenery is breathtaking.

Now we are ready for the Fjords and here's where our trip becomes the most active as well. We will have one night in Alesund, which is a must see and one night at the Gierangerfjord, a World Heritage Site before heading to Bergen for our final 3-nights. This itinerary is very special and includes the Gierangerfjord which is a must see, World Heritage Site. We will fly from Oslo and will spend one night in Alesund named Norway’s most beautiful city.

The city of Ålesund is known for its architecture in Art Nouveau style, its surrounding fjords and the high peaks of the Sunnmøre Alps. The meeting between mountain and fjord in the Alps of Sunnmøre and in Geiranger is equally spectacular in summer and winter. There is probably nowhere else in the world with this unique combination. The snow clad mountaintops, the sharp, clear winter air, the views and the nature experience refresh both body and soul!

The next morning we will depart on our journey to the Geirangerfjord, so unique it has been included on UNESCO’s world heritage list. The deep blue Geirangerfjord is surrounded by majestic, snow-covered mountain peaks, wild waterfalls and lush, green vegetation. This might possibly be the most beautiful place on earth. We will spend the night at the highly rated Hotel Union perched high above the fjord with incredible views (our group will all have fjord view rooms!). We have a cruise of the fjord (included) plus you might also want to take a short easy walk or summit hike offering you the most stunning views.

Now we wrap up our journey with 3 days in Bergen. Bergen is known for Bryggen Hanseatic Wharf, the Fish Market, and surrounding mountains and fjords, such as the Hardangerfjord and Sognefjord.

The highlight of our stay in Bergen will definitely be the Norway in a Nutshell day. This is a full-day package tour that will have us on ferry's, trains and boating down magnificent fjords. Our fjord cruise is in the Aurlandsfjord and Nærøyfjord (UNESCO World Heritage)
