Meet your specialized local guide and expert driver to begin your exclusive, private off-road adventure tour of Hvar island that takes you up through the highland plateaus of lavender fields, ancestral olive groves, stone walls and abandoned villages.
Away from the bustle of Hvar town, this is Hvar as it has been for centuries, serenely beautiful, rugged and full of fascinating history. Many inland villages on Hvar island were abandoned over the years, the inhabitants forced out by loss of liveliehood to crop disease and the lure of employment in the coastal settlements.The villages left behind are like enchanted time capsules, medieval ghost towns of traditional island life sitting in the hills backed by cliffs and slowly being swallowed up by nature. Scents of Hvar island are also well known: lavender, rosemary, sage...just to name the few of over two hundred plant species of Hvar hillside.
Sunny side of Hvar has amazing views of open seas. Vis and Bisevo being closest and Korcula and Lastovo located further away. To the south. The sunsets from Hvar are always special although each part of the day holds its special moments. Hvar is a special place. Unique from its shores to abandoned ancient houses of its interior. The roads less traveled are now those the nature claims back with tall pines and strawberry trees.
In the incredible location of the unique abandoned village of Malo Grablje, you will stop for an exclusive traditional dinner. A stunning and atmospheric setting you won't forget.
Following dinner, you will have your return transfer to Hvar town.
