Secrets of the largest Croatian island - Krk

The golden island of Krk is a treasure trove of cultural heritage and fertile fields,
as well as numerous inlets, bays, and beaches that lace the exceptionally indented coast.

Your tour will start in the small town of Vrbnik – one of the few large villages on the east coast of the island of Krk. Vrbnik is the right choice for everyone who doesn’t see the appeal in mass tourism but is instead looking for an authentic Mediterranean experience that pleases all five senses. Walking through its narrow streets, you can feel the tradition and connection of man and nature because life here depends on the sea and vineyards.
Next on your itinerary is the islet of Košljun. You will arrive in Punat, and after a short panoramic ride in a taxi boat, you will arrive on the islet. In the central part of the island, with a circumference of merely 1075 meters, elevated only six meters above the sea, there is the Franciscan monastery with a representative Renaissance church and a cloister. The church of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary was completed in 1523 at the site of an older Romanesque church. It is richly adorned with two artistic breath-taking works of art.
Explore the islet, visit the monastery, and return by boat to Punat, where your driver will be waiting to take you to a local olive oil producer.
Olive oil is much more than just an ordinary food ingredient in Croatia – it is a symbol of health and gastronomic pleasure. With its distinctive flavor and proven health benefits, it is an integral part of life on the island of Krk. Your host will present his oils to you, tell you something about the estate, olives, olive oil and oil tasting techniques. After the tasting of the oil, and a snack, you can take a short walk through the olive groves and maybe purchase a bottle to carry home.
