Have you ever wanted to travel the Mediterranean on a small group sailing adventure? Tour operator G Adventures has launched a new itinerary that explores lesser-known and more secluded locations between Venice, Italy and Zadar, Croatia. The new trip sails through the Gulf of Trieste to the Slovenian Coast, then through the Istrian Peninsula and Kvarner Bay Islands in Croatia, which are famous for their delicious seafood and beautiful beaches.

“A small-group sailing adventure is the perfect way for travellers to get away from the hustle and bustle of Europe’s ‘over touristed’ big cities, but to still see up to four countries while unpacking just once. As well as experiencing local food and culture, travellers who are keen can learn to sail and take advantage of the Adriatic’s pristine waters to snorkel and swim in. A sailing trip is really as laid-back or active as our travellers want to make it.

“Each trip is led by a qualified local skipper who knows the waters like the back of their hand. They are able to take travellers to secluded locations to meet locals where there are no other tourists. It really is the best way to experience Europe by sea,” says Donnelly.
