Croatia Tour Itinerary
Hiking Dalmatia starts with a relatively easy walking tour. We will enjoy beautiful Marjan hill and the city of Split, exploring its historical and natural side. We will climb to the highest point of Marjan hill which offers spectacular views of the city and surrounding islands, from where you will get a better feel of which places will be visited in the upcoming week. Overnight in a hotel in Split.
We will hike on trails that are very popular with local mountaineers. Mosor is a mountain range in Croatia located near the city of Split on the Adriatic coast. It offers a variety of routes from easy walking (although in rough karst terrain) to real climbing routes and superb views on Croatian islands, coastal mountains, of interior mountains. Overnight in Split.
Today, hiking Dalmatia means reaching the highest peak of the Dalmatian islands! We will depart on the early morning ferry from Split to Brac island. As we arrive at Brac transfer will take us to the highest point of Brac – Vidova Gora, which is the highest peak of the Dalmatian islands (780m). We will hike to Blaca hermitage which is protected by UNESCO. Return to Split on the evening ferry and overnight in our hotel.
After breakfast, we will take a shuttle from Split to Makarska Riviera, (about 50km), situated at the foothill of mountain Biokovo which is a part of the Dinaric Mountains and as such has a direction of NW-SE. Other than its position, Biokovo is unique also because of its geomorphology and its biological diversity which were the main reasons Biokovo was proclaimed a Nature Park in 1981. Overnight in Split.
We will depart on a morning ferry from Split to Hvar island, from where we will start our hike, passing through terraced fields and abandoned villages. You will hear about the history of lavender production and learn many interesting facts about one of the most beautiful Croatian islands. Overnight in Hvar town.
We will start on a shuttle to Humac, once a shepherds’ settlement, which offers a bird’s eye view of the valleys and headlands on the west side of the Island. From Humac we continue hiking Dalmatia via the Grapceva Cave, the cradle of Hvar’s culture and civilization. The cave is one of the prehistoric findings dating back to the Neolithic Period 5000 – 4000 years BC and one of the oldest discoveries in the Adriatic and the Mediterranean. Overnight Hvar town.
Today we will hike to the peak of St. Nikola. The hiking tour leads you through vineyards following ancient paths trodden by locals who still cultivate their land in the same way their ancestors used to do. On the way down you will stop at beautiful cave and finally arrive in the village of Sveta Nedjelja. Since we continue along seaside there would be chance for swimming in one of beautiful bays on the way. Overnight Hvar town.
A day when hiking Dalmatia comes to an end and we say goodbye. We will organize your departure timings according to your further traveling plans.
