Food Experiences

Destination’s culinary traditions, food philosophy and dining culture often speak of its character as articulately as its architecture, history and legends. Intimately attached to the ways people live, think and behave, gastronomy often unveils shared perspectives, making us feel at home even when the place itself seems unfamiliar.

Culinary Croatia Food Experiences are about making you feel at home in Croatia. Spend time with locals proud of their commitment to centuries’ old traditions like olive oil making, salt harvesting, oysters and mussels farming. They will gladly bring you in on the secrets of the trades and lend you a hand as you learn to open shells, collect fleur de sel or make your own honey. Partake in unique seasonal experiences, such as picking olives or grapes. Exercise a true Dalmatian lifestyle, down to hours-long coffees and a glass of wine at lunchtime, followed by a soothing siesta.

You can enjoy these experiences as day trips, or can travel Croatia on a multi-day program designed around our culinary culture. Whichever part of Croatia you are visiting - and for whichever reason - these foodie experiences will turn your visit to a unique memory, seasoned to perfection.
