Capture the small but mighty Gozo

Malta’s sister island, Gozo, carries the same charm but without the heavy vestiges of commercial tourism. Encircled by clear Mediterranean waters, defined by dramatic coastline and rolling green landscapes filled with rich history, this island may be small but its splendour certainly isn’t.

Its alluring scenery is so picturesque we have two trips specifically designed towards photography. During our ‘Photography Weekend’ or our ‘Capturing Gozo on Camera’ holiday, you’ll be guided by professional photographer Pete Bullen for the best snapshot of the island in more ways than one!

If you prefer a more active approach to exploration, our ‘Activity Weekend’ allows you to fill your time with kayaking, cycling, climbing, hiking and even Segwaying.

Cruise the islands of the Adriatic

Dotted along the beautiful Adriatic Sea behind the boot of Italy are the many islands of Croatia. Over 1,200 of them pattern the shoreline, making a distinct coast much in the same way that the Norwegian fjords do in Scandinavia. They are generally long, thin stretches of land covered with greenery, promising arresting views over the vivid blue water. Cruise the Croatian Islands with Artisan Travel and you can take in their splendour while voyaging in full comfort.

Head to tranquil Mljet, which boasts the oldest marine protected area in the whole of the Mediterranean. Some believe it to be Ogygia, the enchanted isle described in Homer’s Odyssey as the place where the hero Odysseus was held by the irresistible nymph Calypso.

You can journey to Hvar and explore the pretty streets in its port town of the same name. There will be time to look around Korčula, with its striking medieval architecture. Wherever you travel, mouth-watering culinary delights will be available, most notably, freshly caught seafood. You will also spend time in the captivating coastal city of Dubrovnik, where terracotta-roofed buildings and formidable defensive walls stand proudly by the sea.
