Korčula: Hiking Tour of Pelješac Peninsula with Boat Ride

8. Korčula: Hiking Tour of Pelješac Peninsula with Boat Ride

The Pelješac Peninsula seems barely connected to the mainland. Situated in the extreme south of Croatia, surrounded by islands and the sea, it can be easily confused for an island. Or even for a mountain range rising from under the sea. This hiking tour starts with a boat - you’ll cross the channel from Korčula to Kučište, a small village on the Pelješac Peninsula that will surprise you with its big houses. At the end of the village, you’ll start to climb a flight of steep steps between houses and their colourful gardens, then, further on, you’ll come out onto the main road. After a little bit of the asphalt – sorry, there is no other way – you’ll continue on a narrow path that gains height steadily through the arid rocky landscape. The path leads to Bilopolje hamlet, offering magnificent views across to Korčula Town. From here, you’ll follow a wide dirt road to reach the Franciscan Monastery of Our Lady of the Angels. If you look backwards – a rugged mountain, if you look forwards – a captivatingly beautiful coastline, and now take a look downwards – woods of pine trees and cypresses… – this all comes together in this hiking tour. The hiking tour continues in the direction of the Church of Our Lady of Carmen. You'll passe vineyards enclosed by dry stone walls… and the last part of this hike includes a smooth descent towards Orebić, a town of sea captains. There, you'll catch a public boat to return to Korčula Town.

We had a lovely day in Bosnia, started the tour at 7:15am when we were picked up in a 8 seater mini van at our hotel by our guide Disco. The waterfalls were stunning and definitely worth the visit, we spent 1.5hrs here which was enough time to take a swim and have a relaxing time at the waterfalls. Mostar was very pretty , we had 3 hours to spend there, which I think could have been limited to 2hrs as the heat was unbearable especially in the afternoon. Definitely worth the visit! Our guide was very knowledgeable and had some fun facts to share, great experience.

Novak was an amazing tour guide. Very informative, funny and personable.. Both Mostar and the Kravice waterfalls were stunning and we had more than enough time to enjoy them. The car was very comfortable. pick up arrangements were clearly communicated.

Good: Nives, our tour guider was very informative and knowledgeable for the area. Bad: Bear in mind, there will be three border crossings each way, and it took a long time to complete all

Disco was a great tour guide, sharing interesting stories and history during our drive. Mostar was very interesting and the falls were beautiful. Would definitely recommend!

Chris was great. Super informative, pointed out interesting things the entire trip. On time and comfortable. Would highly recommend
