From hidden coves on the coast to lush vineyards in the heart of the island, let us take you on a jeep safari packed with an exciting array of spectacular landscapes and azure vistas. We’ll also take you all the way to the highest point of Hvar, St. Nikola’s peak, whose awe-inspiring view will give you a definitive reason to say, “There’s no better place in the world for me to be at this moment.”
Program description: A short drive along dirt road leads to Malo Grablje, a small village abandoned decades ago. Upon arrival there will be a short walk through this picturesque 16th century village. After Malo Grablje we proceed to Velo Grablje and then stop in Vidikovac with a perfect view of the deepest bay on the island. Our guide will tell the group all about the area and about the oldest town in Croatia, Stari Grad, founded by ancient Greeks. After a short stop we drive to the highest peak of the island, Saint Nikola (626 m). From here there is a 360 degree unobstructed view of the island all the way across to the islands of Brač, Korčula and Vis. Below the high point of St. Nikola, 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. Driving downhill your group will be constantly surprised by the sheer variety of Hvar's landscapes - vineyard-covered hills, olive groves and undulating fields of rosemary and lavender.
