The main advantage of the Ultra Europe Festival, besides the line-up, is it’s location – so make sure to combine the visit to the best summer festival with exploring the most beautiful summer destination.
We offer you the ultimate experience – PARTYING and SAILING among the famous Croatian islands. There is no better way to combine active holidays and the best party programme. Get ready for 7 days of pure holiday feeling and choose between two options – renting an entire yacht with a skipper or just select a cabin.
When we mention words like HOLIDAY & PARTY – we mean it! You don’t have to have any additional sailing courses or permits, we provide a skipper who is responsible for a safe trip and takes care of the boat. Be prepared to learn the basics of sailing though as well as the rules of on-board behaviour. In case you wish to learn more, the skipper will be glad to teach you to sail.
Our sailing boats have 3, 4, or 5 cabins for 2 persons each. This means 2 persons share one cabin. In the event an uneven number of persons apply for the sailing trip, one person may have single-use of a cabin or even sleep outdoors. The skipper sleeps in the saloon that’s the living room on a sailing boat. The yacht provides a kitchen (food has to be provided by the guests) as well as the toilet and shower. Each time you moor alongside there is the opportunity of using the facilities ashore, in the marina.
Each passenger is responsible for him/her-self and has to follow the skippers’ instructions who will take care to avoid any dangerous situations. The skipper is not responsible for the guests while they are on land. Each passenger has to know how to swim. Besides this, your only responsibility is to party hard and enjoy the festival.
The route is determined in advance, and it will not change (except in case of force majeure). This applies to cabin bookings. If you booked the entire yacht, you may make arrangements with skipper and change the route. We don’t recommend this though, since the established route covers all the best spots and allows all festival experiences.
