5 DAYS, 4 NIGHTS:
This program includes sailing, sea kayaking, trekking
Difficulty level: moderate-challenging
Arriving to Stari Grad from Split. Transfer from Stari Grad to Hvar town (18 km). Accommodation in private apartments in Hvar.
10:00 Sailing to island Vis. We will sail in one of the best parts of the Adriatic, and to the favorite destination for people who love the sea and islands.
This tour is all about the sailing, the poetry of movement as many would call it. It is not easy to put a precise itinerary of this trip, because we leave the choice to the nature, letting the weather and winds guide us. One we can say for sure: you will see beautiful places, beaches, maybe even a cave, enjoy in the best local food and company, hear about the interesting history of our attractive islands Hvar and Vis, traditional way of life on those islands and a lot more. Or you can just enjoy the music of the wind, waves and warmth of the sun and dance of dolphins passing by.
We will stop for swimming and snorkelling (gear is included), so you can explore the underwater world while taking the break. We return back to Hvar around 6pm.
9:00 trekking tour to the peak of St. Nikola. The trekking tour leads you through olive groves and vineyards following ancient paths treaded by locals who still cultivate their land in the same way their ancestors used to do. It is difficult to imagine how much effort and hard work is required to grow grapes in vineyards on steep slopes going all the way from the sea surface to the top. The trail takes us along the old road made of stone blocks which was once the only communication between the south and the north side of the island.
When you reach the peak of Sveti Nikola at 636m above the sea level, you will have a wonderful view of all the surrounding islands. On the way down you will stop at two beautiful caves and finally arrive in the village of Sveta Nedilja where a lunch will be organized in one of the traditional restaurants. Since we continue along seaside there would be a chance for swimming in one of beautiful bays on the way.
We return back to Hvar around 6pm.
The starting point of the kayaking tour is the town of Hvar. We set off to the group of small islands called the Pakleni. The origin of the name goes back to old days when the islands were the main source of rosin for local shipbuilders. Today, just like then, the islands are covered with thick pine woods providing refreshing shade even during the hottest summer days. The kayaking route takes us through narrow straits and along the islands, revealing small hidden pebble beaches where you can enjoy the privilege of having, at least temporarily, a beach of your own. There are a few pleasant bars and restaurants next to the sea offering cold drinks and good food, where we will have our lunch. Along with tasteful food and homemade wine you can enjoy in the peacefulness and the beauty of the scenery. Snorkelling gear is included, so you can enjoy beautiful underwater scenery of Pakleni archipelago. Those who are in their best shape, could kayak all the way to the well-known beach of Palmizana on one of the islands! We return to Hvar around 2:00 pm.
Early morning transfer to the port of Stari Grad. Ferry to Split.
