Excursions

Excursions to other destinations can be arranged for travel agencies and larger groups.

Please note:

  • Because the duration of sailing depends upon a number of factors (weather conditions, encounters with dolphins, the time set aside for bathing and swimming…), this makes it difficult to precisely predict the time of arrival at specific places. Hence, all times of arrival listed below are approximate. The time of departure for specific destinations is announced over the public address system.
  • In case of poor weather, we may choose alternative sailing routes.

Sights to see

losinj1 You can take a 15-minute walk from Valdarka Cove to Mali Lošinj. Along the way, stop at the Island Garden of Fine Scents, where you will find specimens of all types of plants growing in this region. This will also be an opportunity for you to taste unique beverages produced from aromatic herbs, sit on the terrace of an authentic island house and enjoy the view, browse the unique herbal products, and learn many interesting thing about these plants. This is where you can also meet Dragan the donkey. Once the main means of island transportation, donkeys are a rare sight today.

losinj2 Today, Mali Lošinj is the largest island town of the Adriatic. Its beginnings date back to the 12th century, and the town experienced rapid development in the late 17th and the 18th century through shipping, shipbuilding and trade. In the early 20th century, it experienced a renaissance in the form of tourism, resulting in the construction of many villas and summer homes. Take a stroll through the town, enjoy its port and its many small churches, and see the bronze sculpture of the Greek athlete Apoxiomen. A decade ago, this 2,000-year-old sculpture was found in the sea near the islet of Oruda. After having been fully restored, it is now on display in all its splendour.

losinj3 Veli Lošinj is the island’s oldest town and, in our opinion, the loveliest. Crowded with old seaside houses painted in bright colours, the picturesque, small port is dominated on its left by a large 17th century baroque church and a 15th century Venetian bell tower. Built on the foundations of a chapel from the 15th century, the church houses the richest collection of sacred paintings of any of the islands of the Kvarner Bay. If you’re interested in contemporary art, visit the gallery located in a four-century-old defence tower. The Dolphin Research Institute “Plavi Svijet” is also located in Veli Lošinj.In the late 19th century, Archduke Charles Stephen had a castle, called Seewarte (Sea Watch), built on the slopes of the hill overlooking the port. Because of the island’s beneficial climate, the castle has been transformed into a hospital for allergy-based respiratory diseases.A stroll through this small town with its many beautiful vistas is sure to make a lasting impression!
