Bee-olive island Šolta - Secret life of bees & traditional olive planting


The very thought of unspoiled nature and its green and blue lush sceneries will make you intent to visit Šolta Island. Treat yourself with its world-famous treasures: honey and protected extra-virgin olive oil. Get on board with us from Split or Trogir, to witness the pure natural beauty of Šolta Island. Joining us for this tour, you will visit its hidden crystal clear bays, excellent snorkeling spots, olive oil factory, and bee farm. Your first gastronomy experience of this island would be the visit of an olive oil factory. This family-run production has been growing olives for the last four generations, and still preserved traditional planting, harvesting, pressing and storing its oil. Attending this tasting program, you are going to find about why their olive oil has been protected by a European designation of origin for the last few years. Various types of olive oils will be served to taste, which pairs well with traditional sausage, dalmatian prosciutto, cheese, and jams. Furthermore, to complete the gastronomy picture of this island, we are taking you for a sweet delight - honey tasting and presentation. Currently, the third generation of beekeepers is spreading through their classes a powerful message of giving bees a chance. Their charming and colorful classroom is noticeable right from the entrance. Entering this classroom, you will be joining for discussion on bees, hive maintenance, and honey production. Find a difference between the queen, workers, and drones honey bees to understand and appreciate their purpose and role. After increasing awareness about these little creatures’ importance, it is time to taste various bees' products such as honey and pollen. You can even see their work through a glass beehive. As a perfect closure of the tour, we are taking you for a swim in Nečujam bay. For the snorkeling lovers, there is a sunken wooden boat at the sea bottom of the bay, which ended up there after a great storm. We will provide you the snorkeling masks to explore its remains before we head back home.
