    Day 6

    Ancient Greek colony and island Vis

    Enjoy a morning cruise to island Vis. From all inhabited islands, Vis is the farthest from the coast. The island was one of the main Greek colonies in the 4th century B.C. Until 1991, it was not easily accessible to foreign tours as it was a military base for the Yugoslavian army! Hence, the architecture, the lifestyle and the landscape on this island are quite exceptional and preserved! Cycle along charming vineyards, sleepy authentic villages and visit Komiža - one of the last fisherman villages. Discover the «pomalo» laid back lifestyle of local citizens.

    Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Accommodation

races

Gulets

Great choice to explore our coast with a larger group of friends or family members. Gulets are very comfortable wooden ships, usually with 4 - 8 cabins, each with private bathroom and AC. These boats come with a captain and crew (usually 3 or 4 crew members). On the boat, breakfast is served daily. Usually there will be served another meal daily (either lunch or dinner, depending on the daily logistics). Sailing is usually not a preferred option for the travel between the islands as these boats are heavy, big and need wind from an adequate direction in order to reach the next destination on time. But comfort is guaranteed as usually there is a sun deck as well as dining space.

races

Luxury Mega Yachts

Built according to the highest standards, tastefully decorated and with a professional crew of 4 or more members. They can be either power or sailing yachts. The level of luxury and service varies and is reflected in the price. 4 - 8 cabins, each with private bathroom and AC. On the boat, breakfast is served daily and usually 1 more daily meal (either lunch or dinner, depending on the daily logistics).

races

Motor Yachts

Perfectly maintained and fully equipped boats with 3 to 6 cabins. Either power or sailing yacht with 3 - 4 crew member who take care of all your needs. Breakfast is served daily. Usually there will be served another meal daily (either lunch or dinner, depending on the daily logistics).

races

Catamaran

Definitely a good choice for groups with more than 4 people as they are spacious and can sail well. Access to small and secluded beaches is possible. Catamarans are usually chartered with a skipper, optionally with a hostess, who can prepare your meals, clean, etc. Catamarans come in different sizes, from 35 to 60 feet which is then reflected in the different type of cabins and space on the boat.

races

Sailing boats

Similar to catamarans but usually with less space so we recommend them for groups up to 4 people.  They need less wind for good and joyful sailing conditions as they are not as heavy as catamarans. On bigger sailing boats a skipper and hostess can be included in charter price.

Prices and Dates
