Katarina Line Expands Land Tour Packages in Croatia for 2019

One of Katarina Line's ships

Croatia’s small-ship cruise company, Katarina Line, announced that it is expanding its land tour packages for 2019 as Croatian tourism continues to grow in popularity, with travelers from the United States and Canada among the fastest-growing markets. 

According to Daniel Hauptfeld, marketing director for Katarina Line, they are designing these tours to provide faster, more direct connections with the company’s small ship cruises. This will allow Katarina Line guests to more seamlessly extend their vacations with a combination of cruise and land tours that focus on wine, gastronomy, culture, and soft adventures like hiking and biking, among other themes.

One popular tour extension is the Coast Express, a three-night program available from Zagreb to Split, Zagreb to Opatija, and Venice to Split. Among the tours’ highlights is a visit to Plitvice Lakes National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site that consists of 16 terraced lakes connected by a series of waterfalls. Guests enjoy a guided, three-hour walk among the waters that includes a boat ride on Kozjak Lake, the largest lake in the park, and a scenic train ride back to the entrance. Guided tours are also offered in each city that explore the historic architecture, culture and ancient traditions of the region. All tours include English speaking guides and private buses.
