This was a truly active holiday, although if you felt like taking it easy you could wimp out of an activity or do an easier version. Otherwise there is morning yoga on the flat rocks by the sea, kayaking and cycling, and picnics on beaches reached by the kayaks. Craig and Xania are brilliant at running these holidays. There is room for 8 guests ( maybe 10 if the family room is full) and so it's all very intimate and personal. The best part is the food prepared mostly by Xania. It's all vegetarian and if you have dietary requirements ( I am a coeliac and I have to avoid gluten) this is taken seriously but with a light touch. I wasn't glutened all holiday and I could feel confident about that, not to mention how delicious the food was. Honestly the best food I have eaten on any holiday. We were given dinner on 3 nights as well as lunch on 6 days and breakfast every day. To be honest I wish we had been able to eat in every night as that was better food than we had in any restaurant and it was a more sociable experience. A brilliant holiday, whether you go as a couple, or with a friend, a child, or on your own.

After going to the Austrian location last Summer, I wanted to try this holiday on a Croatian island. Xania and Craig were so welcoming; they are positive people, they gave us great tips for kayaking and made us fantastic food. The rooms are very comfortable and the days are full of both group activities and chill out time. It was a very well-spent week - I have tried new things and have felt in touch with my body and with the nature around me. I highly recommend this holiday!

We had such a great week with Craig and Xania and our new Welsh friends (the other family who stayed at the same time as us). With our 12 year old daughter and our 13 year old son, we loved having structure to our week. Xania led one day of kayaking and Craig did another but with the addition of SUPs. Vis is so beautiful to see from the water. Waking up and doing yoga by the sea (with a wonderful swim afterwards) was a great way to start the day. The healthy and tasty vegan food was a hit even for the non veg members of the family. We did a bike ride to the nearest town, Komiza, which, while tiring for me, was a hit for the rest of the group. It was a great way to see the island. Craig and Xania really know how to make people feel welcome and comfortable. All activities are optional but it is more fun to partake. The air conditioning was a great luxury after too much sun. We would definitely return.

Last minute booking of vacation to Croatia appeared to be one of the best decisions I made this summer.

Apart from a magic mix of morning yoga on the rocks, bike rides with yummy altitude and stunning views, kayaking and gorgeous homemade food you are getting way much more. It is a welcoming atmosphere created by Xania and Craig.

Atmosphere that inspires you to explore and widen your own borders in a relaxing and gentle way. Being brave enough in a swimming pool I came to Croatia with a fear of open water. Now I have stories to tell, how I did snorkeling in the sea and in the area of Green Cave. It is the atmosphere that charges you with sunshine from the inside. The whole week was packed with good mood only, giving enough time to chill out, read or write, if you feel this way.

Thank you, guys, for making usual things different and creating from summer vacation a great, well-balanced adventure for body and soul.

Just returned from a fabulous week with Craig and Xania on Vis. Great activities accessible to all levels of general fitness; starting the day with yoga by the sea, then mixtures of kayaking, cycling, snorkelling, paddle-boarding with flexibility built-in for those that want to push themselves further. All the actvities were infused with fun which kept the whole family perfectly entertained for the week, with enough downtime built in to the schedule to enjoy the local beaches.
The hospitatlity in the home was great and the food provided wonderfully inventive and plentiful; putting your feet up with a drink on the balcony was the ideal finish the day.
This is the perfect way to explore the island of Vis and both relax and recharge!

My boys (14 and 15) and I had an absolutely brilliant time on our holiday with Wearactive. The island of Vis is magical with crystal clear sea, loads of idyllic coves to explore and two beautiful towns. Craig, Xania and Simone enabled us to make the most of our time organising loads of different activities and giving us great recommendations. We cycled, kayaked, paddle boarded, swam, slacklined and snorkelled in perfect locations accompanied by Craig and Simone both of whom clearly love being outdoors and so inspired us all. Xania cooked delicious food loved by the veggies and meat-eaters alike and when we weren’t eating in they arranged lovely places to eat including dinner at a vineyard which we highly recommend. I even got to do yoga by the sea before the teens surfaced in the morning. The brilliant organisation and food means as a parent you actually have time off instead of being a tour operator/entertainer/ chef on your precious time off. The only drawback is that I will struggle to match this holiday!

Each day started with personally tailored Yoga in a beautiful spot by the sea, followed by a swim in the glittering Adriatic before a delicious breakfast of fresh fruit, fresh bread and scrumptious homemade spreads. (The food we had was really superb and introduced us to new thinking about our diet). The day continued with a choice of activities to make the most of the beautiful Vis Island. Craig and Zania, aided very ably by Maia, gave us a wonderful time in an apparently effortless and relaxed way. Their attention to detail and empathy made our experience very enjoyable and restful. We kayaked to The Green Cave 'out of hours' so we had the place to ourselves and could experience the tranquility, with only the lapping of water and swallows hunting for insects in the semi-dark interior, for company. There were many highlights of the trip but the most memorable is seeing three Dolphins swimming and breaching through the water from our Kayaks one morning.

Really lovely to share Vis Island with you and have the chance to spend time with both of you. We must be honest and say that the highlight of any kayak trip for us is also to see Dolphins swimming and breaching through the water. Hope you have many future adventures, kind regards, Xania and Craig

Craig and Xania are excellent hosts who have carved out a life of pleasure that they are willing to share with discerning travellers.
You'll discover stunning scenery by kayaking along the coast, cycling over the hills or stretching on a cliff for morning yoga. The food is divine (and I'm notoriously fussy). There's enough down time to have afternoons of recluse or evenings exploring the towns.
All age groups loved this holiday.

Fantastic holiday. Every time I go I'm a bit fitter and stronger! Love the location, food and activities. Lovely hosts. The sea is ideal for snorkelling and the roads are quiet enough for safe cycling.

I am the type of person who never writes reviews but my holiday on Vis with Craig and Xania and my family (boys 9 and 10) was so good that its the least I can do. From the minute you get picked up in the Land Rover until the moment you leave its an adventure, but one where you are really well looked after. Another lovely family staying at the same time were fitter than us and had much older children but Craig made it easy for everyone in the group to have an amazing time with options for each person to push themselves or chill out. Each of us had our own special moment; from diving in the sea after a morning yoga session to flying 8 km downhill past gorgeous views into a picture postcard harbour, and for the boys jumping off huge rocks into the sea in our own deserted cove or swimming inside an old submarine base. After each adventure its back for cake and later the most delicious dinner on the balcony. Honestly the best holiday ever. We all want to go back.
