Water sports on Korcula

The Adriatic Sea is so amazingly clear and the water around Korcula is so still, it’s lake-like. An abundance of water sports can be enjoyed in and on the sea, from snorkelling to scuba diving, to kayaking to wind-surfing. Hire a kayak or boat and paddle or motor across to the archipelago between Korcula and Lumbarda – the small islets here, such as Badija, Vrnik & Stupe, are beautiful and so peaceful.

Walking&Wine Tasting Tour in Lumbarda

Join us for a scenic walk through the Lumbarda countryside, passing olive groves & local vineyards, before sampling some of the island’s finest wines – the white wine Grk and the red wine Plavac Mali. We will stop at two of our favourite wineries, sampling traditional appetisers at the first and feasting on a delicious dinner at the second; of course all served with wine!

Snorkeling Boat Trip

Enjoy a leisurely boat trip around the beautiful islets lying off the coast of Korcula Town with time to swim & snorkel at two beautiful spots in the channel surrounding the Korcula archipelago. For lunch or dinner your host Mario will prepare tasty fish with seasonal vegetables /salad, all washed down with his own family home-made wine.

Korcula

The great thing about the Island of Korcula is its concentration of the landscapes and beautiful surroundings that can be found throughout the whole of Croatia. From the green wooded peaks that give stunning views of the Adriatic, to the fertile plains that are utilised by the farmers; with their stone walled olive groves and rolling vineyards. There are red roofed settlements smattered across the island, found on the hills, in the valleys or those that make up quaint fishing villages dotted along the coast line.

A remarkable old town maybe the focal point for most visitors, but it is when you travel through the picturesque landscape and find yourself at the crystal clear waters of a secluded white pebble bay, that you truly appreciate where you are.

The most known son of Korcula is Marco Polo who suppose to be born here. According to this theory, his father was a merchant from Dalmatia named Maffeo Pilic, who Italianised his surname to Polo when he established himself in Venice.

Game of Thrones Walking Tour

Discover ‘Game of Thrones’ film sites of Dubrovnik on this walking tour that takes in the real-life attractions used for some of the television show’s fictional locations. As you explore the city’s World Heritage-listed Old Town with an in-the-know guide, enjoy views of the red-roofed skyline you’ll recognize as King’s Landing. Follow in Joffrey’s footsteps at Lovrijenac Fortress, stand where Ayra Stark stood and hear behind-the-scenes stories about filming in the city. When booking, you have the option to upgrade to include a 1.5-hour tour to Trsteno Aboretum, which was used as the palace gardens. This Viator Exclusive is available nowhere else.
