Team building retreat
on Croatian coast
Hunt for adventure at the head of the Adriatic
At the heart of the Mediterranean sits Croatia, a small country with massive outdoors potential. With 1,700 kilometers of coastline and over 1,000 islands, Croatia towers above the competition in terms of sheer variety. The same can be said of the cities adorning the shore – blending Greek and Roman-era remnants with Austro-Hungarian charm and Italian flair, they’re a medley of influences and awesome architecture. If you’re looking to adventure, unwind, and experience sensory overload in the best possible way – come to coastal Croatia.
Day 0: Split to Vis
- Explore Roman-era landmarks
- Sail crystal-clear waters
- Enjoy the soothing aromas of local herbs
Arrive at the coastal city of Split, meet the crew, and get settled on the ship. Embark on a quick tour of the city before cruising to Komiža, a charming town on the island of Vis. Eat dinner on the boat, take a walk around town, and get ready for a day of adventure.
Day 1: Vis to Biševo
After an early breakfast, visit the famed Blue Cave and watch the morning sun illuminate it in its titular azure light. Then, head out for a trek on the island of Biševo. Follow a trail from the Mezoporat harbor to the reclusive Porat bay, where your boat will be waiting for you. After lunch, pick one of two activities:
Track 1: Embark on a military tour. Explore the World War II remnants scattered across the island on light and easy-going hikes.
Track 2: Head out for a two-hour mountain biking tour of the island of Vis with some elevation change (+400 m/ 1,300 ft).
In the evening, the teams will meet at Roki’s Family Winery and Restaurant for some excellent wine and traditional pit-roasted delicacies.
Day 2: Vis to Hvar
Spend the day exploring the island of Hvar. Have breakfast with the Greek-era Old Town as the backdrop, and explore the town center with a local guide. Join your guides around 11 AM for a selection of cool activities:
Track 1: Enjoy a relaxed six-hour, 40 km (25 miles) mountain biking tour of the island. A guide will follow you in a pick-up truck in case you want to cut the tour short. Stop for lunch in one of the great local restaurants along the way.
Track 2: Go on a half-day kayaking tour of Pakleni islands, right across the Hvar Strait. You’ll also get the choice to swim, snorkel, or simply nap in the sun. Refuel with a picnic-style lunch.
Track 3: If you’re a climbing enthusiast, you could try one of the many rock climbing locations on the island. Choose between bolted sport routes and deep water soloing, all on top-quality limestone.
In the evening, your team will gather at the Nono family tavern in the small town of Jelsa. Try time-honored local dishes prepared the old-fashioned way.
Day 3: Hvar-Brač-Split
Stop by the small town of Pušica on the island of Brač. Visit a traditional stonemasonry school before embarking on another adventure.
Track 1: Head out for a 6 hour, 50 km (31 miles) MTB tour to an olive oil museum. The trail takes you across Vidova Gora, the highest mountain in the Adriatic, to Supetar, the largest town on the island. The elevation gain is significant, so a guide will follow you in a pick-up truck in case you want to end your tour early. Lunch will be provided courtesy of your guide.
Track 2: After a 40-minute transfer to the top of Vidova Gora, enjoy a 4-5 hour downhill trek packed with some of the finest views in the Adriatic. After lunch, time permitting, stop by the Brač Olive Oil Museum.
Cap your adventure off with dinner on the yacht, cruise back to Split, and disembark in the early evening. Farewell and “Vidimo se opet”!
