Originally joined to its neighbour Cres and now only linked by a bridge, the island of Losinj was part of Italy from 1920 to 1943, and then part of Yugoslavia until Croatia declared its independence in 1991.
This two-centre holiday takes you to Croatia’s hidden gems: the islands of Rab and Losinj.
They offer an ‘off-the-beaten-track’ view of Croatia and between them boast a wealth of attractions, from spectacular scenery and historic towns to charming, rustic villages.
See the sights at a laid-back pace. On these tours you'll rarely spend more than three or four hours travelling a day and there will usually be a few days for you to simply stay put and relax. Typically, any walking during the excursions will be at a leisurely pace and will amount to just a few hours of the course of the day.
Fly to Rijeka (or Zagreb on selected dates) and travel by coach and short ferry crossing to the island of Rab.
Stay seven nights at the 3-star Hotel Padova (3Q), situated in the bay of Prva Padova, directly on the seafront.
The hotel also overlooks the old town of Rab, about one kilometre away.
