Tour starts with a 20 minutes transfer from Hvar town to our hiking path. We will hike through villages where you would see the beauties of traditional architecture and way of living, learn about medical herbs and much more. There is a possibility to try the homemade vine, prosek or grappa, prepared in a traditional way…
Hiking from V.Grablje to Milna is quite easy trail to follow. It is the best choice for short walks during hot summer days and for perhaps less active groups who would like to experience the challenges of walking in the nature.
We start our walk from Velo Grablje towards Malo Grablje following the old trail which in medieval time used to be the main road connecting Hvar with Stari Grad on the north side of the island. The entire trail is downhill, starting with approx. 20 long steps and continuing as a small trail for approx. 1.5km.
With its location, landscape, architecture and tradition, Velo Grablje is one of the most interesting villages of the island of Hvar. You will hear a very interesting story about growing lavender and producing lavender oil, thanks to which Grablje has become its largest producer of the 20th century. You will find out what exactly happened to the production and why it has been reduced to but a few smaller producers.
We continue our walk to Malo Grablje on a wide, gravelly trail…
It usually takes us around 1h from Velo Grablje to Malo Grablje, including short stops for some explanations and pictures taking. This small village gives a real insight into authentic Dalmatia.
After arrival to a picturesque, hidden village of Malo Grablje we continue walking for about 45minutes on a wide, gravelly road to Milna. Milna is situated in a secluded cove with stunning beaches and pine woods.
If you opted for the half day tour, this is where our tour ends and you will go back to Hvar town by transfer. If you opted for the full day tour, after a short break we continue our walk to Hvar town. It lasts approximately 1.30h (depending on the speed).
