They produce and sell best honey I ever tasted in Croatia. Here you can learn a lot about the bees and honey. Don't miss to come and to take with you at least 2 kg of perfect honey

On a rainy afternoon while visiting Split, we took the ferry to the island of Śolta where Goran greeted us and proceeded to teach my husband and me about the wonders of bees. (Meanwhile, his lovely wife Natasha was preparing an authentic, homemade Croatian lunch, worthy of 5 stars.) Goran’s knowledge and passion combined with his humility made our experience remarkable. If you’re concerned about climate change, good health or just curious about nature, I suggest this experience!

Of all my travels, I really think this is in the top 5 things to do...of course if you happen to be in Split!
The most fun, educational, beautiful, gastronomic, hands on, relaxed day EVER! Goran and his wife are the perfect hosts for what is an amazing day out. Goran was there to meet us off the ferry, and then he took us to his farm and house (10 mind drive). On the way he told us about the village, Solta and more importantly his passion for bees! When we got there we had a lovely fresh made lemon drink and we started the tour. He gave a really interesting presentation about bees - and bee-lieve me there isn't anything he doesn't know. Very engaging and pitched at all levels - my two children were entralled. After that we donned the hats and watched him extract the honey from the hives. Then we got to spin and jar our own. Really fun. We opted for the 3 course lunch made lovingly by his wife and with as much of the local produce as possible. Apparently she was on a TV cooking show, and I don't doubt it. Wonderful fresh food, no rush, beautifully presented. After this we then had some time in their gardens and Goran asked if we wanted to go to a local beach, just a 10 min walk from the ferry. Of course! He dropped us at this little secluded beach with not a ripple on the water. Crystal clear and a beautiful cove. We had an hour or so swimming with the fish then walked (Croatian like = slowly..why rush??) to the ferry. A scenic journey back to split and we chatted the whole way about what an amazing day we had. THIS is what memories are made of! I would happily recommend this day visit to Solta to anyone. I'm not positing any photos other than the one so I don't spoil your visit!

Sailing in Croatia on a catamaran, our last stop was the island of Solta, I did what I do at every island we arrive at, I googled things to do in Solta and this was the first thing that popped up. I looked up open hours, called the number I found on Google and the owner answered. I called a taxi and five of us arrived to his house/bee farm, a 12-15 min drive from the marina. The experience was amazing! We learned so much about bees, bee products and their benefits to humans. I was so entertained and felt I was learning so much I did not want it to end. Then he took us on a tour, there was absolutely zero pressure to buy but we bought a bunch of products!definitely try the honey nectar combination, delicious! Oh and his English was very good! Highly recommend if you are on Solta.

Imagine basking in the Croatian sunshine, a brunch of fizz with fresh orange juice, a plate of figs and this morning's crusty local loaf smothered in honey you know to be the freshest and tastiest local honey - because you saw it come from the hive and prepared it yourself just the day before. This is the gift Goran gave to us!

We booked tour 2, to learn and make (sorry, steal!) our own honey and also to eat like beekeepers, Goran's wife Natasha set to cook us authentic Croatian grub.

We organised to meet Goran by the ferry port at 12, and despite him being less than 5 minutes late he was immediately apologetic and took us straight to his farm. The tour started here, hearing about the island and the Tvrdic family history before arriving at the secluded and peaceful farm. Fresh figs from the tree as we passed were delicious, before sitting down to a passionate, interesting and enlightening talk about bees and the many many products they produce. I won't tell you too much, Goran can fill you in (he's far far better at it anyway) but I will tell you I won't be buying my honey from the supermarket anymore!

We then visited the bees, Goran taking out a comb each for us to prepare and centrifuge ourselves, our own honey to take home and enjoy this morning. Goran works with care and love, he may say he is boss to 5 million hard working employees but this is a family business through and through - his wife, his son, his bees!

Finally we ate like beekeepers - there was no perusing a menu, no choosing chips because it's safe! Instead there is a lovely table set with iced water and local wine, with Natasha providing a 3 course delight of local cuisine - Croatian food, not restaurant food. I feel I can tell you our menu, as it is never the same! Fish paté, vegetable paté with paprika, olives with cheese and fresh bread before beautiful honey and mustard chicken slow cooked in black wine with "Croatian pizza", a truly delicious blend of courgette with home made tomato sauce and cheese - and I thought I didn't like courgette! Finished with a carub tartlet with fig marmalade it was one of the tastiest and most homely meals I've ever eaten - Goran must eat like a king!

With our own honey bagged up with two extra hand luggage safe jars we were ready to go, Goran had already started the engine to cool the car and took us down to a secluded beach and waterfront restaurant where we spent the wait for the ferry in the undescribable waters of the island, clear, blue and the perfect temperature.

Have no doubts this experience is worth every penny - your visit is guaranteed to bee truly awesome.

We'd seen the signs pointing out Tvrdic Honey so dropped in unannounced. And boy did we enjoy the 30 minutes spent with Natasha.
She has an amazing fund of knowledge about bees and honey-making (plus other stuff bees can help with, such as soap) and her English was excellent too.
There was no hard sell, we didn't;t feel we had to make purchases: but we did in two types of honey and a couple of bars of soap.

We booked a visit for my 7 friends and I fairly last minute for a Wednesday visit which is their closed day. They were quick to reply and set up our day with them.

On arriving, Goran - the current third generation bee keeper - was there to meet us off our ferry to Rogac. He was friendly and was excited to have us with him on the island. The tour was informative and funny in parts where we learned all about the lies and truths of bees and their 'magical healing powers'. He let us try some honey, fresh pollen, and other produce which were all the best I've ever tasted. His knowledge and clear passion for his work and bee keeping kept us excited and for 100 Kuna, it's a bargain!

He also gave recommendations to an incredible local restaurant in Rogac with incredible views and an incredible tuna steak. He also set us up with a tour of Olynthia Natura - the island olive oil producer - all without any extra charge. Such a friendly place and would recommend the trip to Solta island specifically to visit this farm. What are you waiting for!

My wife and I were were struck immediately by Goran - words cannot fully explain his passion and advocacy for bees. We were the only two visiting that day and we fell into a very easy discussion on bees, hive maintenance, and honey production. Goran was enthusiastic, patient, and encouraging - pushing us to seriously consider taking up beekeeping even though we live in NYC. before we knew it, we had spent 3 hours with Goran and hadn't even tasted his honey yet. Spoiler alert, it was delicious. The sage honey was good but the lavender really stood out in its mild and refreshing taste. Then the real treat. Goran had some fresh honeycomb and invited us to taste. Holy jeez was it delicious. It was a shame he didn't have enough to sell. Still, we bought several jars of honey and his special pollen / honey blend. Goran also noticed that my wife had a minor sore throat and gave her a small spray of bee propolis to use. Our visit was the start of a fantastic day on Solta and definitely one of the highlights of our week in Croatia.

A great place for all ages, whether you are a bee novice or expert. Goran is filled with knowledge and passion and manages to transfer that to his guests with his outstanding presentation style. He and his family are extremely friendly and welcoming. Definitely a 'must do' if you are in Solta.

We booked a honey tour and lunch and travelled to the beautiful island of Solta just for this. After a morning swimming we were met by Goran who drove us up to his lovely honey home. The day we visited was excessively hot and the lemon and honey drink along with figs from the trees was a perfect start.
Goran is so knowledgable and interesting and I loved all his stories and his most important message - give bees a chance. As soon as I am home I shall be seeking out our local beekeepers to buy honey.

The highlight was collecting and spinning our own honey, currently being enjoyed with figs for breakfast.

We tasted many different honeys and then moved on to an absolutely exquisite lunch prepared by Natasha. Honestly is was so delicious.

Goran, Natasha and family were wonderful hosts and I highly recommend this informative, fun and delicious experience.
