    DAY 1 Arrival in Split & ferry to Hvar

    Hvar harbor

    Upon landing to Split airport, our driver will meet you there and transfer you to Split harbour where you will board a high-speed ferry across to the island of Hvar.

    The wonderful town of Hvar is set against a backdrop of stone houses and a turquoise sea and exudes the Mediterranean charm of yesteryear. For the best view over the town climb up to 17th-century Fortica Fortress or explore Hvar’s narrow streets filled with wonderfully quaint restaurants and shops selling artisanal wonders. Spend the evening relaxing with a drink taking in the sights, sounds and celebrities of Hvar’s nightlife, we recommend the Le Bonj bar.
