FAMtrips.travel and Katarina Line have joined forces to offer travel advisors the opportunity to explore the “Pearl of the Adriatic” this summer on a Croatia FAM combining yachting with a land program.

The land portion of this Croatia FAM starts on Aug. 18 with a visit to Venice, Italy before transferring to the city of Opatija on the Croatia Riviera. The remaining three days of the land portion will be spent in Opatija, the Plitvice Lakes Region, and Split, with tours included in all three regions along the way. In Split, advisors will board Katarina Line’s MV Markan and set sail on the Adriatic Sea for a yachting adventure to three Croatian islands: Hvar, Korcula, and Brac. Highlights of this weeklong itinerary include city tours in Opatija and Split, a visit to Plitvice National Park with its 16 lakes that are connected with a series of waterfalls, and swimming in front of Golden Horn Beach.

The 38-passenger MV Markan offers nine VIP Staterooms with private balconies, two double/twin staterooms on the main deck, and eight double/twin staterooms on the lower deck. Starting FAM rates range from $1,575 pp to $1,775 pp depending on accommodation choice. This rate includes all activities as stated in the itinerary, all meals while on board the yacht and some meals during the land portion of this Croatia FAM.

In addition, for a limited number of advisors who prefer to fly into Zagreb, Croatia on day one of the land portion of this trip, Katarina Lines can accommodate them with two nights in Zagreb before transferring them to meet the rest of the group at the Plitvice National Park. Advisors choosing this option will not be able to visit Opatija. From there, advisors may continue with the final two days of the land stay with the group in Split before boarding the ship with the group. Although this option is available, FAMtrips.travel recommends the full itinerary starting in Venice.
