There are 2 ways to transfer from Split to Dubrovnik: 1) by car; 2) by ferry. Each one has its pro and cons. We recommend doing it by car, if you like scenic drive along the coastline and you’re looking for great wines, fresh seafood, small towns…
Why should I go by car?
a) Distance between Split and Dubrovnik is circa 230km (145 miles) and coastal road in-between is one of the most scenic drive you can enjoy in Croatia. One part of this drive is high-way, because we don’t want you to stuck in traffic around Omiš town. Check Google maps below for detailed route.
b) On the way to Dubrovnik, there’s boutique winery with ‘million dollar view’ from its terrace. Winery itself is part of youngest wine regions (appellation) in Croatia – ‘Komarna wine region’. Although there’s no heritage in wine-making here, there’s a lot of wine-science, therefore their wines are premium quality, constantly awarded at the wine exhibitions. It’s kind of miracle to grow vines on such inhospitable terrain (karst rocks). Here you’ll taste native wines of Croatia: ‘Pošip‘ (white) & ‘Plavac mali‘ (red) paired with snacks: cheese, extra virgin olive-oil, bread.
c) When you cross Croatian-Bosnian border (twice), soon there’s charming small town of Ston, founded by Dubrovnik Republic in 14th century. It’s a must see place, because of its saltpans (dates back to Roman Empire, still harvesting salt), stone houses, long defensive wall…
Included: transportation (upper-class car or luxury Mercedes mini-van), English-speaking professional driver, scenic coastline drive, boutique winery visit with wine-tasting (1 hour, 3 wines + cheese, extra virgin olive-oil, bread), Ston town self-guided sightseeing (30 minutes)
Not included: seafood lunch in Mali Ston town (Captain’s House restaurant) | Lunch price range: around 20-35 EUR per person
Passport info: you’ll need passport at hand for this transfer, because you’ll cross Croatian-Bosnian border twice (2x). If you needed visa to visit Croatia, then you need Multiple-entry Schengen Visa sticker in your passport.
Note: if you want to start from different location (e.g. Trogir, Omiš, Makarska) or finish (e.g. Cavtat, Kotor-Montenegro), please write your request in Message Box below or send customized travel plan through Contact Form.
