5 Great Tours to Give That Little Extra to Your Hvar Holiday

Total Croatia News

July 10, 2019 – With SO many tours being offered, how to choose the best, and where to find tours that offer that little extra? Five of the best from the island of Hvar. 


1. Looking for a wine tour? Do it in style with Wine and Waves

Hvar has a fascinating wine story dating back to the arrival of the Ancient Greeks back in 384 BC, and it has several indigenous grape varieties which only grow on the island. Wine tourism is an increasingly important business, and while there are several more traditional tours, if you want one in true style, check out Wine and Waves – a speedboat tour from Hvar Town which passes the gorgeous southern coast of the island, before heading to Zlatan Otok, one of Croatia’s top wineries in beautiful Sveta Nedjelja, complete with underwater tasting room. But you are not finished yet, as there are two more unique tasting experiences to choose from – wine tasting in a cave by the water, and in this stunning vineyard above. Learn more about the tour


2. Want to visit the Blue Cave? Why not do the Blue, the Green, inland Vis AND Palmizana in one?

The Blue Cave at Bisevo just off Vis is understandably one of the top attractions on the Adriatic, and it has become incredibly popular. Too popular, unfortunately, as tour groups now come from as far away as Split (and even further), and tourists can end up waiting a considerable amount of time in the sun. The standard tours take in the Blue and Green Caves and a swim on a beach on Vis. Not a bad day out, but you can do SO much better. 

How about the Blue Cave, the Green Gave, a fascinating tour of inland Vis with its incredible military history and tunnels, with a final stop at idyllic Palmizana on the Pakleni Islands on the way back to Hvar Town? While others wait, your tour just gets better. The secret is an early departure from Hvar Town (8am) and the best local knowledge. Few tours on the Croatian coast pack in as much fun as this in one day. Find out more


3. Heading to the beach? Check out six of the best by speedboat. 

With so much to explore on Hvar and with limited time on holiday, how to get the most out of your stay? Take beaches, for example. Hvar’s beaches are often listed among the best in the world in various lists – and with good reason. But finding the best ones takes time and transport. What if you could be given a selection of the very best, time to sample each, then head off and discover the rest – by speedboat!

The Hvar 6 beaches tour takes in six of the very finest beaches on Hvar and the Pakleni islands, all in one day. Starting and finishing in Hvar Town, travel in style to the very finest beaches on the Hvar coast. Learn more here
