Mr. Kaštelanac will welcome you at the Olynthia Olive Oil Mill in Gornje Selo, to show you around his family mill and olive groves. Known for their efforts to safeguard the old ways of olive growing and harvesting, the family mainly grows native Croatian sorts, such as Oblica or Šoltanka. Some of their trees are over a 1,000 years old! Sample different olive oils, including flavoured ones like rosemary or lemon. Come to understand the difference between traditional and modern approaches, as well as all the hard work that goes into working the barren karst of Dalmatian islands.
After Olynthia, it’s time for bees and honey with the third generation bee-keepers of the Tvrdić family. Learn about the process of honey-making and taste several different varieties of this home made specialty. Choose between a visit to the bee hives or making your own honey! Following a lovely, homemade lunch and some local wines, enjoy the rest of your time on Šolta swimming in one of its bays or sipping espresso in one of the seaside villages.
Available as a bike tour as well. It is also possible to include it with a sailing itinerary.
