1 day off-roading (9:30 am – 5:00 pm, lunch included).
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 Saint Nicholas (626 m).
From the highest peak of the island there is a 360 degree unobstructed view of the island and across to islands of Brac, Korcula and Vis. Below the high point of St.Nicholas on a sloping sunny hillside lies Sveta Nedija, a village surrounded with 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 one family run tavern in the central part of the island. Preparation of food in the tavern is traditional and it sends you back to 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 the lunch you can choose: octopus, lamb, veal or chicken with potatoes as a side dish.
After the 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.
