I am at the beginning stages of planning a 13 night trip to Croatia/Slovenia. An additional friend will be joining after the first 3 nights there I need to be in a city with an international airport on night 4. Here are my thoughts and would love suggestions.
- dubrovnik 3 nights with a side trip to Kotor or Mostar
- drive to split and friend will meet up stay 2 nights
- 1 night plitvice lakes
- 2 or 3 nights istria area
- 3 nights ljubljana with side trip
- 1 or 2 nights zagreb
It's quite expensive to pick up a car in Croatia and drop off in slovenia which is why we'd be flying out of zagreb.
Or my other thought is cut out Split and fly from dubrovnik to zagreb and make a similar loop through Istria and slovenia returning to zagreb.
It is a group of 3 in our mid 30s that like to be active yet not move from place to place every night.
