DAY 2

HUMAC & GRAPCEVA CAVE
9:00 Breakfast
10:00 – Transfer to Humac, once a shepherds' settlement, which is located 7 km east from Jelsa, 350 m above sea level and offers a bird’s eye view of the valleys and headlands on the west side of the Island, yet also providing a view of the Island of Brac and the coastline of Makarska. The houses of Humac are well preserved, simple and made of stone. They belong to a unique rural type of architecture and are therefore considered as being an ethnographic monument. From Humac we will hike to Grapceva Cave, the cradle of Hvar's culture and civilization. The cave is one of the prehistoric findings dating back to the New Stone Age (Neolithic Period) 5000 - 4000 years BC and one of the oldest discoveries in the Adriatic and the Mediterranean. It is situated 239 m above sea level and was the cultish place of a Neolithic Islander. The cave consists of a small hall (13,5 x 5 m) and a larger one (22 x 23 m) surrounded by hallways and chambers. The towering stalactites and stalagmites that decorate the cave resemble an ancient organ and along with the absolute silence and solitude of the cave offer a magnificent and unforgettable sight.
Dinner at the pansion.
Hiking: 3 h


DAY 3

ST.NIKOLA – HIGEST PEAK OF THE ISLAND
9:00 Breakfast
9:30 trekking tour to the peak of St. Nikola. We will transfer you to the starting point of the hiking tour. The hiking tour leads you through olive groves and vineyards following ancient paths treaded by locals who still cultivate their land in the same way their ancestors used to do. It is difficult to imagine how much effort and hard work is required to grow grapes in vineyards on steep slopes going all the way from the sea surface to the top. The trail takes us along the old road made of stone blocks which was once the only communication between the South and the North side of the island.

When you reach the peak of Sveti Nikola at 636 m above the sea level, you will have a wonderful view of all the surrounding islands. On the way down you will stop at beautiful cave and finally arrive in the village of Sveta Nedjelja. Since we continue along seaside there would be chance for swimming in one of beautiful bays on the way.
Dinner at the pansion.
Hiking: 5 h

HVAR TOWN AND SAILING TO PAKLENI ISLANDS
8:00 Breakfast
9:00 Transfer to Hvar. We will spend our morning exploring Hvar town. At 12:00 we sail out on our sailing boats, to the group of small islands called the Pakleni. The origin of the name goes back to old days when the islands were the main source of rosin for local shipbuilders. Today, just like then, the islands are covered with thick pine woods providing refreshing shade even during the hottest summer days. Besides the well-known beach of Palmižana, the route through narrow straits and along the islands reveals to you small hidden pebble beaches where you can enjoy the privilege of having, at least temporarily, a beach of your own.
