  • Venice
    Venice

    Venice has been known as the "Queen of the Adriatic", "City of Water", "City of Masks", "City of Bridges", "The Floating City", and "City of Canals". Luigi Barzini, writing in The New York Times, described it as "undoubtedly the most beautiful city built by man". Venice has also been described by the Times Online as being one of Europe's most romantic cities. Founded in the 5th century, the city stretches across 118 small islands in the marshy Venetian Lagoon along the Adriatic. In 1987 Venice and its Lagoon was inscribed as a UNESCO Heritage site. SeaDream typically docks at the San Basilio pier after navigating by the famous St. Mark’s Square down the grand canal. With its yacht stature, SeaDream vessels are amongst the very few commercial vessels that can navigate this famous waterway. SeaDream does offer Land Adventures when overnighting. You can also contact our destination specialists should you need a private arrangement, transfer or hotel recommendation.

  • Zadar - Hiking Paklenica National Park

    Description

    Depart the pier for the approximately 45-minute drive to Starigrad Paklenica, a picturesque town and harbor located on the southern part of Velebit Mountain. Upon arrival, proceed to Paklenica National Park. Declared a national park in 1949, Paklenica spans approximately 37 square miles (about 95 square km), and is highlighted by a legendary peak, Anica Kuk, on its 1,312-foot (400-metre) face. Its summit offers spectacular vistas of the coast, sea, Paklenica and the peaks of Velebit Mountain. The park also features a pair of picturesque canyons, Mala (Small) and Velika (Large) Paklenica. Velika Paklenica Canyon is approximately 8.7 miles (about 14 km) long and 1,640-2,625 feet (500-800 metres) wide. Its defining characteristic is the steep drop from Anica Luka, which measures approximately 2.5 miles (about 4 km) from its base.

    After receiving the safety instructions, begin your guided hike through Paklenica's Karst River Canyon, located in the foreground of the magnificent Velika & Mala Paklenica canyons. The karst is an area of exceptional natural beauty and various geological formations. Cliffs, caves, holes and cracks abound, and the dissolution of soluble rock has created natural works of art known as 'skrape'.

    This hike winds through the Paklenica Karst River Canyon and uphill towards Anica Luka, with a few stops en route. Upon arrival at Anica Luka, you pause for refreshments and splendid panoramic views of your surroundings. Afterward, commence the 1.5-hour return walk back to the valley, then board your awaiting bus at the park entrance. Your tour concludes with a 45-minute drive back to the pier.

  • Dubrovnik, Old Town - Historical Dubrovnik & Game of Thrones

    Description

    Discover the Dubrovnik Old Town which is so stunningly striking that it seems to have leapt directly from the pages of George R. R Martin’s addictive series – the Game of Thrones novels. It is no coincidence that Dubrovnik was also a capital city in its own right – of the now extinct Republic of Ragusa. On this tour, you will be taken through all the parts of the Old City where some of the most memorable scenes from the Game of Thrones cultural phenomenon were filmed, including: The Pile Gate where King Joffrey was faced with a citizens’ riot and pelted with dung. The Lovrijenac fort where the unsuccessful attack on King's Landing, known as the Battle of Blackwater, took place. The seemingly endless fortified walls will be seen from Lovrijenac fortress where Tyrion Lannister and Varys took a stroll. During your guided walking tour of the Old Town you will pause for a special Game of Thrones inspired cocktail created for SeaDream guests called a "White Walker Punch"!

    All of the filming locations and commentary from your local guide will be accompanied by large, A4-sized photos that show the screen-shot from the appropriate episode and what took place. Of course, the people of Dubrovnik are also fiercely proud of their own fascinating history which your guide will also inform you about, alongside the Game of Thrones commentary.
