It's never been so hot to cruise in August!

It’s no secret that June & July are the peak seasons in Croatia. Whilst that is great if you love the hustle and bustle, it does also mean that you’ll likely be paying top dollar too. The peak travel months not only attract the tourists for island hopping cruises, but for the world-famous music festivals which Croatia is now home to. You’ve no doubt heard of Ultra Europe, right?

The overwhelming popularity of Ultra Music Festival has resulted in new festivals to hit the beach, and there is now a festival for everyone even outside of the busy June/July months. We’ve listed 4 Ultra Europe alternatives which not only provide something a little different, but which also line up perfectly with our cheaper August Navigator departures.
