Description

09:00AM You will meet Your professional personal skipper at the lobby of Your Hotel for full day of exploring island Vis and Blue and Green caves.

Imagine an island which was closed to foreigners until just 25 years ago as it was home to the largest missile base in former Yugoslavia, but is the birthplace of European cricket outside the UK. An island which has had huge British military impact over the centuries and houses Allied cemeteries, soldiers who paid the price for the strategic positioning of Vis in the Adriatic which has attracted visitors – friend and foe – since time immemorial. An island with its own submarine base and secret military installations.

An island which hosted the first sailing regatta in the world. An island of fabulous wine, food, tradition and history, reassuringly far from the mainland, and one whose second town has more families living from fishing than tourism. An island of outstanding natural beauty, of traditional stone Dalmatian stone villages and fertile fields contributing to the healthy and natural Mediterranean diet. And an island that many tourists visit only for a famous beach, voted the best in all Europe, as part of a visit to neighboring star attractions, the Blue and Green Caves, but missing all of the above.

Your day will start with a visit to the Green Cave. The Green Cave has a small opening in the ceiling that lets the sun light pass through, creating an image very similar with a flashlight cone in the night. You will also visit Stiniva bay which is divine. A small ray of heaven which is collecting several international accolades, the latest of which is best beach in Europe by European Best Destinations. Next stop is another natral phenomanen - the Blue Cave. After enjoying in beautiful nature, You will continue to Mr.Roki’s estate for lunch, a feast of Dalmatian peka. You will hear one of the most remarkable stories in Dalmatia, for your host Roki was responsible for continuing one of the island’s more unusual claims to fame – the oldest cricket club in Europe outside the UK. Regular international games and tournaments take place on the edge of the military airfield which played a crucial role in World War II. On Your way back to Hvar, You will have various stops where You will discover the role the British have played over the centuries on Vis. Island Vis is famous for its submarine base which You will visit, as well as its tunnels and ramparts built into the hills, and a missile loading site.

Thanks to our Travel Advisor, Cate Caruso, we had the pleasure of working with an amazing team at Leonidas Travel Ltd. during our trip to Montenegro and Croatia in April/May 2018. Every personal driver, guide, and skipper was beyond friendly, knowledgeable, and very customer oriented. Throughout our stay we were well cared for - and we learned so much about the beautiful places we visited. The hand offs from one locale to the next were seamless - and recommendations were perfect. We highly recommend Leonidas Travel - and are so very thankful to Cate for partnering with such a wonderful and caring team of people!!

Your Croatia Go To Advisors

Leonidas Travel worked effortlessly with our travel agent to help plan the most incredible honeymoon for me and my husband. I knew very little about Croatia before we decided to honeymoon there and now I am telling everyone it should be on the shortlist of "places to visit" for everyone... and I think Leonidas is to thank in large part. They helped put together a itinerary full of unique and educational culinary experiences and awe inspiring excursions. Every person we came into contact through via Leonidas, from hotel staff to tour providers to transportation and everything in between. Our entire trip was well planned, executed and communicated. It made our experience extremely enjoyable and we always felt well taken care of

Travel review Leonidas

We had a terrific experience with Leonidas. They worked with us along with our Calgary travel agent and they were excellent. We had one hiccup on our trip and the team went over the top to have things sorted very very quickly and brilliantly. The service was excellent as were recommendations for tours, dining experiences and accomodations. Someone from the team is immediate to respond to emails or calls during the course of the vacation. Would use them again in an instant!!
