In this picturesque tour you will have the privilege to experience the genuine coastal way of life, in the beautiful villages of Dubrovnik Primorje, resembling the ancient times back in the days of the Dubrovnik Republic.
Our first stop will be at the olive oil mill in the beautiful village of Orašac, 15 minutes away from Dubrovnik. Hundreds of years old mill, owned by a local family, itself tells stories about the way of life in the ancient Dalmatia. The family will give a detailed presentation about the production of the olive oil along our cost. You will have an opportunity to taste olive oil and enjoy a light lunch, with vegetables and salad from the owner's garden together with some homemade cheese and prosciutto for a complete experience.
With the divine aftertaste of the olive oil still watering your mouth, we will continue our lovely ride along the coast towards the Pelješac peninsula, most famous southern wine region in Croatia. Ston, the so called capital of Pelješac is famous for its world renowned city walls. It was, and still is, an important salt-producing town in this part of Croatia. Its economic importance led to the construction of its walls for the purpose of sheltering the medieval town centre. Today the walls are still standing and visitors from all over the world admire the view of the salt-pans and enchanting Ston valley.
The trip will be crowned by an incredible experience on the boat, taking a sail in the bay of Mali Ston and visiting oyster farms. Freshly picked oysters will be taken out from the sea and served for us on the boat, together with some wine.
Finally after whole the excitement, we have an option to relax over a seafood lunch in one of the best local restaurants located by the bay, where you can enjoy classical Mediterranean cuisine and top-notch wines. Since this small town takes huge pride in its gastronomic achievements, this lunch is set to be something spectacular as well.
For the end of the tour, you can take an easy stroll through the famous Solana Ston, a salt factory that still uses the old ways of salt harvesting, and even take a walk on the medieval Ston walls, overlooking the whole area.
