Cres - Osor - Mali Lošinj

After breakfast we cycle towards Mali Lošinj. Cres is an island of a slightly wild nature, very rarely inhabited, and has numerous flocks of sheep that freely graze aromatic herbs, due to which the lamb meat has a special taste, and in terms of quality it belongs to the world's top. We will pass by Lake Vrana and stop in the old town of Osor. In the afternoon hours we arrive in the town of Mali Lošinj, the largest island town on the entire Adriatic, which became well known and famous at the end of 19th century due to its mild Mediterranean climate. Lunch onboard and free afternoon for which we recommend a visit to one of the Lošinj museums or to the fragrant island garden. Overnight in Mali Lošinj. (B, L)

Day 7
Krk - Njivice - Opatija

Due to the fact that it is connected to the mainland by a bridge and its short distance from industrial centres, the Island of Krk ("Golden Island") is still well populated and extremely well visited in the summer months. In the early afternoon, we will embark the ship in Njivice, once a small fishing village, and today a tourist centre. During lunch we sail towards Opatija, the “Old Lady” of Croatian tourism and the final destination of our trip. Overnight in Opatija.
