Split is a beautiful city, full of historic sights and fun lifestyle. If you have a couple of days or longer in Split sure you want to make a trip and forget the city bustle. We recommend you Šolta place of true beauty and spectacular scenery. The island of Šolta is known for its olive oil, wine and honey.

It’s just a 45 minute cruise and there are both morning and afternoon trips. For those who want closer contact with the sea we can also arrange a private speedboat transfer or even a sailboat!.

When you arrive on Šolta, you will be met by one of our people who will take you to the ancient groves of Olynthia Natura. You will love the ride through the island’s untouched nature, with its smells of grass and herbs.

In the groves you will meet one of our olive masters who will talk about the oldest cultivated tree in the world.  And you will see, touch and feel the leaves and bark of a tree that is more than 1000 years old as you learn all about farming, indigenous Dalmatian varieties of olives and the lifestyles of olive growers on Šolta.

This day trip from Split gives you the experience of practically being an islander yourself. We’ll take a relaxing walk through one of the island’s most beautiful typical villages – winding narrow streets, ancient stone houses, life as it has been for countless generations.

When we come to the mill, you will enjoy our full “Taste like a pro” program to understand how to produce the highest quality oil using a blend of tradition and the latest knowledge.

After the presentations, a delicious sit-down, lunch combining varietal and flavored oils with different courses and pride of Šolta – Dobričić wine. Plenty of time to relax or swim on nearby beaches in Rogač before taking the afternoon catamaran or later afternoon ferry back to Split!
