What to expect
Info Level: medium / difficult Duration: 6 - 8 hours Distance: 15 - 20 km Group size: 4 – 15 people Description Did you know that French rule in Croatia began in 1806 and lasted until 1813 when Napoleon's troops were defeated in Russia and the Austrian military again invaded and occupied Croatian territory? The Napoleonic fort in Hvar was built in 1812 on top of the 230-meter hill above the town of Hvar and today is the home of the Hvar Observatory (department of the Faculty of Geodesy, University of Zagreb). The research outpost is devoted to astrophysics and has the largest stellar telescope in Croatia with a one-meter mirror. Our tour starts at the bus station in Hvar. From there we climb up a steep and small hiking path that goes through a very beautiful small pine forest until we reach the Napoleonic fort after about a half-hour. There you can enjoy the beautiful view of the town of Hvar and numerous nearby islands like the Pakleni islands, Vis, Brač, and Šolta. It is the perfect place for great photos or selfies. Taking a small dirt road, we will then pass through many ancient dry-stone walls, olive groves, and endless rosemary and lavender bushes. The aroma of Mediterranean flora here is extremely intense and breathtaking. We then we pass by several hill peaks, and following a small path, we descend again, to a canyon where the famous abandoned village of Malo Grablje is situated. It usually takes about 3 hours (8 km) to hike from the Napoleonic fort to Malo Grablje. At this exceptional location of unreal beauty, harmony and tranquility we take a break. Stori Komin is a traditional Dalmatian “konoba”, or inn, run by a local family and is a great place to taste local cuisine and wines. After a break, for the next 45 minutes we make our way down the canyon with numerous olive groves to our final destination - a picturesque coastal village, Milna. There you have several options: you can take regular transportation back to Hvar or go for a swim, and then have lunch in Mala Milna restaurant and / or, you can walk 1 hour by the sea from Milna back to the town of Hvar.
