Today, the island is renowned for its gorgeous white quarried stone, countless secluded bays, small, uninhabited islands, and breathtaking views. Make a stop in Smokvica to enjoy lunch as a group.

Check out our Q&As

  • What is the fitness level required to do this tour?

    Activity Level 3: Step It Up, I love an active vacation. Engaging in a challenging activity with a difficult goal, such as reaching a summit, is exactly what I need to unwind in the evenings. Hiking: Typically, 3-6 hours per day on well-formed backcountry trails. Expect some significant gradient inclines and declines. Altitude: Your trip may include some moderate altitude areas, though these don't form the focus of the trip and are generally manageable. Biking: 1-3 hours on well-formed paths or roads where you can expect some hills with moderate climbs and descents. Kayaking: 1-3 hours, entry-level sea kayaking with specialist guides and stable boats. Other activities (i.e. caving): Always optional and very little exertion required. A highlight for many!

    Yes, All park and other entry fees are included.
