This morning meet your driver at the hotel lobby for a short transfer to the marina where your private motor boat will be located. Your skipper will take you for a cruise to the island of Mljet – one of the greenest and most beautiful islands in Adriatic.
A Greek settlement of Melita (honey) got its “sweet” name after the bees that lived in the vast forests of the island when the ancient Greeks first discovered it. Mljet is believed to be the island of Ogygia mentioned in the famous epic poem ‘Odyssey’ as the paradise island where the Calypso nymph detained Odysseus for seven years. True or not, this legend celebrates the luxurious beauty of Mljet, which you will get a chance to discover. Upon arrival you will enjoy a self-tour of the national park area. The untouched nature and the beauty of the Great and Small Lakes connected with the open sea by a narrow channel. In the heart of the Great Lake stands the Isle of St Mary with the sleepy 12th century Benedictine Monastery that can easily be reached by a small boat. Do not miss the walks along the lovely wooded paths by the lake, along the ancient pine forest.
Later this afternoon, your skipper will take you back to Dubrovnik.
