Tour description


 

Historic towns, hilltops, coastal villages, mysterious monasteries, meditative caves and incredible panoramic views all lie along the path you are about to embark on. We have combined hiking and an off-road adventure to take you along the backroads and trails of the island to show you the quintessential island culture, nature and local charm of Brač.

A moderate hike, almost like a stroll through time, brings you to Škrip village – the oldest settlement on the island and a veritable time capsule. You will pass through ancient ruins and stone walls of the Illyrian tribes, visit a medieval fortress that houses the museum, containing the supposed crypt of the mother of Constantine the Great. To top it all off - a museum entirely devoted to olive oil production. You may even get to sample some of the local lady’s rakija!

Then continue your hike down to Pustinje Blaca and its famous monastery, which was founded in 1551 by Glagolitic monks from the Republic of Poljica. This small Republic existed behind Omis, wedged between the rivalrous Venetian and Ottoman Empires. The monks, fearing Turkish raids, fled to Brac in the 15th century and later received permission to build their monastery in its current, well-hidden location that is not visible from land or sea!

The final highlight will be the ride to the highest peak of Brac Island called Vidova Gora. This is also the highest island peak in Dalmatia serves the Adriatic, Hvar Island, and iconic point of Zlatni Rat beach far below like on a platter.

Round off your day with a well-deserved lunch in a traditional tavern followed by the return to your place of stay.

Zlatni Rat

Sidebar Image 400x400

Zlatni Rat - the shape-shifting beach! Croatia's most famous and unusual beach, also known as the Golden Horn, is rated one of the top beaches in Europe. A naturally occurring spit of polished white pebbles juts out at right angles from the coastline for 500 meters, its point shifting and changing shape with the strong surrounding currents. The afternoon winds draw watersport enthusiasts in droves, the point of the beach becoming a literal launch pad for kite and windsurfers. Nothing less than striking, the bustling vibe of the beach point is a sight to see for itself!
