April 25, 2019 – Hvar’s adrenaline credentials continue to grow. No sooner has the ÖTILLÖ Swimrun World Series finished than Mountain Madness is upon us.
Hvar used to be such a peaceful island…
Lazy days at the beach, even lazier days drinking coffee in the cafes of its picturesque cafes.
And then something happened.
Don’t worry, those award-winning beaches are still there, and nothing truly beats a little people watching on the ‘pjaca’, but there has been a new addition to the tourism sector in recent years – adrenaline tourism.
Hvar is of course an adventure playgrouns, with fabulous conditions for cycling, sailing, kayaking, climbing, hiking and more. But there has also been a subtle change of emphasis in its shoulder seasons, as more adrenaline races and activities are added to the calendar.
Earlier this month, for example, there was the third edition of the ÖTILLÖ Swimrun World Series, and you can check out the fabulous official video above.
Caught your breath after that one? Hvar Town is the place to be once more this Saturday, with the return of Mountain Madness. There is still time to register, and full details below. Another fun and healthy addition to what some believe is the nicest time of year to visit the island.
Mountain Madness Croatia is a race designed to test strength, endurance, but also to challenge skills, speed, and ability to overcome various obstacles on a 7km long trail, regardless of weather conditions. The race is suitable for fit participants of all ages and also for dogs! At the finish line there will be an after party with great prizes for everyone to win.
