Honey and olive oil of Solta island

Split, Croatia

The lush Dalmatian island of Solta is well known not only for its rocky coastline and pretty villages but for its unique gastronomic traditions which are still part of local life today.

After making the short boat crossing from Split your private guide introduces you to the Kastelanac family and the olive oil mill which has been in the family for generations. Their olive groves produce a variety of native Croatian olives and are home to thousand-year-old trees, the harvesting technique safeguarded throughout centuries of labour. You'll learn the family olive oil traditions and, of course, get to sample the various specialities, including the delicately flavoured rosemary and lemon oils.

Honey-making will be your next stop, and a visit to the third-generation bee-keeping Tvrdic family. See the honey bees hard at work in the hives or even have a go at making your own honey, all rewarded with a delicious tasting to round off an insightful day.
