DAY 1. Split – Hvar

In the afternoon hours, we meet at the ferry port Split. During the pleasant ferry ride, we enjoy the view of the island of Brač. After arriving at Stari Grad, we head to camp Mina in Jelsa. There we meet with the other jungle guide who awaits us with our tents. Now, we can leave our things and jump right into the crystal clear sea. In the afternoon hours, we start hiking to Sveti Nikola peak. On the way, we see vineyards and fields of lavender, immortelle, and Spanish broom. The path is wide and pleasant. Just before sunset, we arrive at the peak. From there we enjoy a breathtaking view of the Pakleni islands, Vis, Biševo, Brač, and Korčula. After taking amazing photos of the sunset there is an optional dinner at the family farm „Kolumbić“ which offers dishes from homegrown vegetables, lamb „pod pekom“ and tasty local wines and schnapps. After filling our bellies with delicious food and wine, the host will take us to our camp. Overnight in the camp Mina.

DAY 2. Hvar - Jelsa - St's Nikola's peak

Waking up to the sound of the waves is a perfect way to start your day. Today the adventure awaits in Stari Grad, one of the oldest cities in Croatia. This year, Stari Grad on the island of Hvar marks an exceptional anniversary – 2,400 years of the city foundation and of the equally long tradition of urban living on the sunniest island in the Adriatic. We visit Petar Hektorović’s Tvrdalj (Croatian poet, 1487 – 1572) with a fish-pond and a dove-cot over it, is the most famous building in Stari Grad. This Renaissance poet built it throughout his entire life and it had the same importance for him as his literary work. After an easy walk through Stari Grad there is an optional gestation and traditional dinner in the lovely surroundings. Also here you can buy local honey, schnapps, capers and other tasty homemade products. Overnight in the camp Mina.

DAY 3. Hvar town - Pakleni islands - Jelsa

After having breakfast and coffee, we head to the city of Hvar. There we visit fortress „Španjola“. Fortica Fortress (Španjola) was built in the middle of the 16th century, on a hill above the old part of the town of Hvar. Today, this fortress is used as a peaceful tourist facility whilst a collection of amphorae and other exhibits both from ancient times and the Middle Ages reminds us of the turbulent history. There is a beautiful panoramic view over the town of Hvar and Hell's Islands extending from the fortress. After uplifting cultural experience in „Španjola“, you can choose your destination on Pakleni otoci (Hell's islands). Whether you want to have lunch in the peaceful surroundings or attend wild parties, you'll fully enjoy the offer of Hell's islands. Upon visiting the islands, you'll realize that their name is exactly opposite of their nature. Here you can also choose to stay on the islands, or head back to the city of Hvar or camp Mina. Overnight in the camp Mina.

DAY 4.  Jelsa - final day

On the last day of our adventure, we enjoy ourselves a bit more. It's your choice how you'll spend your day, whether it's swimming and sunbathing, rent a bike or maybe taking a walk in the lovely city of Jelsa. In the afternoon hours, we take the ferry back to Split.
