Wild Hvar Jeep Safari & Swim

There's more to Hvar than the glittering town and its nightlife. Step into our specially prepared 4WD vehicles and discover Hvar's wild side—from hidden coves on the coast to lush vineyards in the island's heartland. From spooky abandoned stone villages all the way up Hvar's highest point--St. Nikola’s peak. An exciting day discovering what most people miss—plus time for a swim and a great olive grove lunch with wine!

Tour description: We'll leave paved roads behind and tool up a dirt road that leads to Malo Grablje, a small village abandoned decades ago. We'll hop out to take a short walk through this picturesque 16thC village. After Malo Grablje it's off to the island's historic lavender growing center of Velo Grablje and then a stop in Vidikovac for a perfect view of the island's deepest bay. It's here where our guide will tell you all about the area and the oldest town in Croatia, founded by ancient Greeks, After a short stop we'll shift into low gear for our climb to the island's highest peak , Saint Nicholas (626 m). Enjoy the unobstructed 360 degree view all the way to the 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. They are famous far and wide for high quality red wine produced from plavac grapes. Hang on for the downhill ride which will surprise you by its sheer variety of landscapes --vineyard-covered hills, olive groves and undulating fields of rosemary and lavender. Then it's time to enjoy an authentic island lunch. If you wish, we can also stop for a short wine-tasting session at one Croatia's best known winemakers. Our authentic island lunch is in the village of Vrisnik. After lunch we continue along the south coast, thought the island's infamous 1 way Zavala tunnel. Passing the south tunnel at Zavala we will break through to the island's south side, one of Croatia's most well-known, premier steep hill wine-growing areas. Then we'll wind up our day circling back to Hvar town, going off-road to drive along an amazing, cliff track with stupendous views of the entire Hvar island archipelago and south shore islands!
