A short drive along a dirt road leads to Malo Grablje, a small village abandoned decades ago. Upon arrival, there will be a short walk through that picturesque village founded in the 16th century.
After Malo Grablje we proceed to Velo Grablje and the next stop is Vidikovac with such a perfect view of the deepest bay on the island. There the guide will give you information about the area a part of which is the oldest town in Croatia, founded by ancient Greeks and more…
After the short stop, we drive to the highest peak of the island Hvar Saint Nicholas (626 m).
From the highest peak of the island there is a 360-degree beautiful view of the island Hvar and across to the islands of Brač, Korčula and Vis.
Below the high point of St. Nicholas on a sloping sunny hillside lies Sveta Nedilja, a village surrounded by steep vineyards which are very difficult to tend. It is famous far and wide for the high-quality red wine it produces from the Plavac grape.
Driving down the hill you will be surprised by the variety of the sun-soaked island paradise of Hvar accented with vineyard-covered hills, olive groves and undulating fields of rosemary and lavender.
We will have lunch at a family-run tavern in the central part of the island. Preparation of food in the tavern is traditional and it sends you back to the lives of people from Hvar from centuries ago.
The most interesting is under the bell-shaped lid (“peka”) which is covered with live coal. For lunch, you can choose octopus, lamb, veal or chicken with potatoes as a side dish.
After lunch, we continue along the north coast to Vrboska where we make a stop to relax and swim at Soline beach.
As our Hvar Off-Road Tour comes to an end approximately at 4.30 PM, we head back to Hvar town taking the new road.
