SEA KAYAKING HVAR – PAKLENI ISLANDS ARCHIPELAGO
Spending time in 1,700 year old city of Split and enjoying in its cultural and historical heritage still enables you to have an exciting and active one day trip. A catamaran journey to the island of Hvar will take you just one hour and there at one of the most beautiful islands in the world your adventure starts. Kayaking towards Pakleni Otoci islets in front of Hvar will let you feel one of the best parts of the Adriatic from a sea level. Islets and its preserved environment with crystal clear sea will make you experience the real Mediterranean. This spot is regularly visited by Hollywood stars, but as they usually do it with yachts, your way guarantees much more joy and pure feeling. The kayaking tour with relaxing paddling and a meal at the Pakleni Otoci will no doubt make you breathless on a positive way. Time will stop for you there and before the return to Split you will still visit the picturesque town of Hvar, the capital of the sunniest island in the Adriatic.
