Open Sea Sailing
Sail away on a 6 days journey to the deep blue sea and hidden coves. If you prefer authentic and rarely seen nature, nautical experience and the absolute silence that only lighthouses at sea offer this is a program for you. We are sailing on a beautiful 54ft sailing yacht with crew. You can book a place in one of 3 cabins, or for private use the whole boat.
Lastovo Island, immersed in the sea, far from the mainland, all crowds, and even light pollution, offers a view of the crystal clear night sky scattered with stars like almost nowhere else in Europe. Millions of stars leave observers breathless. Stars aren’t our only guiding light on our journey.
As we sail, we will also explore and get to know more about the lighthouse phenomenon on the eastern coast of the Adriatic Sea. All the monumental lighthouses built in inaccessible areas bear witness to the construction feats achieved in the 19th century. The lighthouses built by the Austro-Hungarian Empire still show the way to sailors today. We will tour four lighthouses, each of which offers a unique view with its position and architecture.
On our way to Lastovo, we will first spend the night on the island of Šipan, which is a gem in the Elaphite archipelago. The island, which is only 16 square kilometers in size, is home to old summer estates and 34 churches that bear witness to a rich history that peaked during the era of the Dubrovnik Republic. Interestingly, Šipan was inscribed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the island with the greatest number of olive trees in comparison to its size. The olive tree is a symbol of the Mediterranean. It has left its mark on civilization, and has been respected since ancient and biblical times.
NP MLJET & KORČULA
We will then spend a day on the island of Mljet and in its National Park. Mljet is the most forested island in the Adriatic, and the National Park contains two salt lakes, with a Benedictine monastery on the isle of St. Mary.
We will go to the national park by bike, and tour the lakes while rowing in kayaks and canoes.
Korčula Island is also on our route. The island with a rich culture and past where every stone has history imprinted on it has been famous since the 6th century B.C. when it was known as an ancient Greek colony under the name of Korkyra Melaina.
Korčula is also known as the hometown of the Polo-Depolo family, including the 13th century explorer and traveler Marco Polo, author of the book “Il milione” with which he was the first European to present facts about China and other Asian countries.
Land of vines
The Pelješac vineyards and winemakers are the best producers of red wine in Croatia. In that area, grapevines and vineyards are often located near the coastline, and the reflection of the sun that bounces off the sea and nearby cliffs improves the ripening quality of the grapes. We will visit one of the fishing villages on a walking tour to explore the characteristics of Pelješac wineries and have an exclusive wine-tasting session.Book Now
