Hike The Island Peak – Private Tour
Two tours in one – To highest peak of Hvar and through steep vineyards!
We start the tour on a jeep transfer from Hvar town to the highest peak of Hvar island- St.Nicolas 626m above sea level. It is about 45min long ride.
We will climb up to the peak to enjoy magnificent views on surrounding islands, mainland, mountains and steep vineyards above the village of Sveta Nedjelja – famous for red wine production.
The climb from the parking spot to the top is about 15min long. After enjoying the views and guides explanations, we will start our downhill hike towards Sveta Nedjelja. The hike down to the sea level is steep an not recommended if you have some serious knee or ankle injuries, so please advise us if that would be the case.
The trail passes along the ancient path that was connecting south and north coast of the island and it was used for daily commuting of people, donkeys and horses.
About 1h walk from the highest peak, we will visit a cave which hides abandoned Augustine monastery from 15th century. After we are refreshed by cool air in the cave, we will continue our hike all the way to Sveta Nedjelja by the sea. It is about 45min walk more.
As we arrive to Sv.Nedjelja we will stop for lunch in small local restaurant and if you wish you can enjoy a swim before the lunch.
After lunch we will depart on a transfer back to Hvar (aprox 45min drive).
