DAY 1. Arrival on Hvar Island (Jelsa)

Upon your arrival to Hvar island we will transfer you to your accommodation in Jelsa. Then, after a welcome drink in the evening, you will be introduced to your guide and also get the opportunity to get to know all the members of the team and the group, as well as learn more about the program.

DAY 2. Off to Brac

9:00AM  We start our day with an introduction to sea kayaking and equipment. Then we set off towards the small islet of Zeveco and the town of Bol on Brac island. Bol is famous for its “Golden Horn” beach, a tongue-shaped beach that changes its shape with the tides and one of the most photographed beaches on the planet!  Our paddle from Jelsa is approx. 6NM.  Well spend the night in a private accommodation on Brac.

DAY 3.  To Hvar and Vira Bay

9:00AM  Today’s adventure takes us along the south coast of Brac island back towards Hvar island. We’ll stop for swimming and resting in one of the bays. Overnight , we’ll set up camp at Vira, one of the bays of Hvar island (Vira camping).

DAY 4.  Exploring the Pakleni archipelago

9:00AM.  Today we head westward, passing the point of Hvar island and paddling to the Pakleni islands archipelago. The origin of the name Pakleni goes back to the time when the islands here were the main source of resin for local shipbuilders. Today, just like then, the islands are covered with thick pine woods providing refreshing shade even during the hottest summer days. The route through narrow straits and along the islands reveals small hidden pebble beaches where you can claim a deserted beach or even a whole island as yours (at least temporarily!) for a swim. Tonight we’ll set up on St.Klement island and enjoy an overnight under the stars.

DAY 5.  North to Hvar town

9:00AM  Today we paddle back to Hvar town following the north coast of St. Klement island. After stops for snorkeling, swimming and lunch, we return to Hvar town, where we spend the night in a private guesthouse.

DAY 6   Hvar town guided tour, free time, farewell dinner

Today you will enjoy one of the most popular and beautiful towns in the world—Hvar town!  In the morning we will begin with a professionally guided short city tour to some of the most famous Renaissance landmarks in all Croatia and other historic/cultural treasures.  Then, the rest of the day is yours to do as you wish.  Rent a scooter, hang out at one of Hvar town’s famous cafes/bars, do some shopping or some more sightseeing.  We also have a number of optional tours you can take – like sailing, cycling, or an island tour by off-road vehicles – so you can learn something about the interior of the island, not just the coastline… It’s all up to you.  Tonight, it’s a farewell dinner in one of town’s best restaurants. Overnight in Hvar in private guesthouses.
