Hike to the cradle of Hvar’s culture and civilisation

This private tour takes you far back in the history. Visit Neolithic Grapčeva Cave, the most significant prehistoric site in the Adriatic. Besides the cave you will also visit a small abandoned shepherd’s village of Humac, where we will have lunch in the traditional tavern.

We depart on a car transfer from Hvar town to Humac. It is about 45min drive. As we arrive to the village you will explore the traditional architecture and learn about life of local farmers shepherds who established the village. Humac is a unique example of well-preserved rural architecture, formerly a pastoral village, Humac originated in the 17th century. At the height of 350 m above sea level, you have a magnificent panoramic view of all the surrounding places, coves and Brac Island.

After tour of the village we will hike to the cradle of Hvar’s culture and civilization – the Grapceva Cave.

The cave is one of the prehistoric findings dating back to the New Stone Age (Neolithic Period) 5000 – 4000 years BC and one of the oldest discoveries in the Adriatic and the Mediterranean.

The last part of the trail to the cave is steep, but well secured.
