Best Time to Visit Croatia

The best time to visit Croatia is typically summer, and the warm and sunny months from June to September are perfect for swimming, sitting in waterside bars and cafes, and sailing around the stunning islands.

The cooler months of April, May and October are still great times to go to Croatia, and activities like hiking in the hinterlands, truffle hunting in Istria, and wine tasting throughout the country are sure to delight at this time of year. The capital city of Zagreb has wonderful festive markets making it a great option for winter travel and combines well with a trip across the border to Slovenia and historic Ljubljana. Our specialists will be able to talk you through the experience for each time of year and help you choose the travel month that is right for you.
