Croatia Travel Advice for Canadian Travellers:

The safety of our travellers is paramount and we keep informed of the latest travel updates on Croatia. We recommend that you check the latest travel advice from the Canadian Government Advisory before you travel.

Flying to Croatia from Canada:

Depending on whether you depart from Canada's east or west coast, Croatia and its islands are between an 11-14 hour flight away. The historic cities of Split and Dubrovnik both have international airports and feature as the starting or end point for many of our tours and cruises. The most direct flights from Canada to Croatia are with Lufthansa who codeshare with Air Canada. A short transit in Frankfurt is required. Other airlines also operate the route but require a second transit stop in Europe. As connection times can vary depending on which day of the week you depart, you may wish to consider extending your time in Croatia to coincide with better flight options.
