Neretva, also known as the ‘mandarin valley‘, is hosting more and more tourists every year. Tourists that are into an active vacation as well as sustainability and giving back, will love this tour!
In the whole Neretva area, there are around 1.3 million seedlings of mandarins, which give up to 60 tons of fruit each year. The locals came to an idea to get a chance for the tourists to join their harvest, enjoy nature and come back home with a bag full of mandarins.
After arriving in the Neretva valley and set in the hotel there is free time for some rest. We start of with visiting the Archaeological museum Narona and the Natural History Museum in Metković. After the museums, we go back to the hotel, have dinner, and rest for tomorrow.
In the morning after breakfast, we are going on the mandarin fields where there will be a welcome drink and after that, we start collecting mandarins. Music will follow us during the harvest. After we finish harvesting, we get a chance to take 3kg of mandarins for ourselves. That is a lot of vitamin C, right?
When we finish harvesting we are going on a safari tour with boats more than a hundred years old (do not worry, they are safe). After the safari tour, we are heading to the hotel for lunch with live music following. Free evening.
After breakfast, we are going to visit the beautiful Nature Park Biokovo where we are going to have expert guidance + multimedia presentations and after that, we are going to visit the speechless Baćina lakes. On the Baćina lakes, we are going to have a boat ride so that we can see and really feel the unspoiled nature here. Free evening.
After breakfast, we head home. Until next time!
