JANUARY 2017.-OPCIJA TOURS SIGNED EXCLUSIVE WITH KUZMANIC WINERY

As recent science development in the wine world revealed that Zinfandel actually originates from Kastela region near Split, in 2014. we started taking our guests to the wineries and cellars on the so called “Original Zin” wine tastings.

Since then we’ve had a lot of satisfied guests and wine connoisseurs on our trips and in December 2016. partnership with local wine producers resulted in an exclusive contract signed with Kuzmanic winery.

For the next 7 years we will manage complete marketing and sales for Kuzmanic winery including wine tours and tastings. We learned that this family owned winery has some great potential as they are the only ones producing indigenous wine sorts in Kastela region-Glavinusa, Babica and Tribjan.

In addition they have the most widespread white sort in Dalmatia called Posip and their wines are outstanding, they regularly win gold and silver medals on local wine competitions. Furthermore they produce wine exclusively from their own grapes harvested within their private ecological property on the slopes of mountain Kozjak near Split so we thought they deserve some serious management.

OPCIJA TOURS-WINTER LEAVES

Nearby Biblical Garden will be a nice extra for our guests, Pope John Paul the 2nd personally blessed olive tree planted in Biblical Garden upon reconstruction in 1998.

According to ancient church documents Kuzmanic family started producing wine around year 1720. and production has mostly been uninterrupted until now. Their cellar is located inside the vineyard, a stone house constructed around year 1900. We are positive that everyone visiting this place will leave with unforgettable memories and tastes of their unique products.

We just love what we do!

OPCIJA TOURS TEAM BUILDING-ARRIVAL

It was a perfect end to our 2015. summer season, we organized a 3 days team building for Swedish IT company.

OPCIJA TOURS TEAM BUIDLING-TO THE CAVES

OPCIJA TOURS TEAM BUIDLING-TO THE CAVES

Average age in the group was 30 so logical thing was to organize some active holidays. After sightseeing of Split center and dinner in a local restaurant it was time for full day adventure-

OPCIJA TOURS TEAM BUILDING-BLUE CAVE

OPCIJA TOURS TEAM BUILDING-BLUE CAVE

Blue Cave-Green Cave-Paklinski Islands-Hvar  excursion with speed boats.

Challenging thing was to take 80 people in 10 speed boats to the caves but we managed so after an early start we arrived to the Blue Cave just in time.

OPCIJA TOURS TEAM BUILDING-GREEN CAVE

OPCIJA TOURS TEAM BUILDING-GREEN CAVE

Blue Cave was fascinating as always but that was just the beginning as we went further to Stiniva Bay and Green Cave.

Lunch on Paklinski Islands in Dioniz was really unforgettable, we brought out all the food and wines to the garden so our guests can walk and relax among olive trees on the estate.

OPCIJA TOURS TEAM BUILDING-PAKLINSKI ISLANDS

OPCIJA TOURS TEAM BUILDING-PAKLINSKI ISLANDS

After a visit to Hvar town we started heading back to Split but weather changed and we were cruising straight into the strong northern wind Bura. None of our guests have ever been in a similar situation so naturally this was quite an adventure. We returned just before dark in heavy seas so some of them were even kissing the ground, happy to have survived. Of course, to us this was just a normal daily routine trip.

OPCIJA TOURS TEAM BUILDING-DINNER

OPCIJA TOURS TEAM BUILDING-DINNER

After a short break we took them to Konoba Varos for a dinner when quite unexpectedly-a band arrived! 3 musicians quickly turned our tired IT programmers into a relaxed singing crowd. When the restaurant closed it was a shame to go to sleep so we just continued in Vanilla night club until late hours. Last day was reserved for a short visit to Trogir and early afternoon flight back to Sweden.

(THE DRY ISLAND) SUSAC ISLAND-LAMB ON THE SPIT

(THE DRY ISLAND) SUSAC ISLAND-LAMB ON THE SPIT FROM SPLIT, CROATIA

SUSAC LAMB EXCURSION OPCIJA TOURS

SUSAC LAMB EXCURSION OPCIJA TOURS

One of our weirdest inventions, a speed boat tour to distant Susac island where the only inhabitants are the lighthouse keepers and our shepherd host with his family. Susac is known as a dry island, rain here is extremely rare so vegetation and wildlife are fascinating. You will feel as like you’ve been thrown into an ancient botanical garden, don’t be surprised by a hawk’s scream as it plunges down from the skies. Approaching it from the sea you will get the feeling that you are heading for 2 islands as the middle part is lower than it´s northern and southern peaks, especially in the summer mist. On the southern rock above a steep cliff on a 100 meter high cliff we find a still operational stone lighthouse built in year 1878., a safety light for seamen. The island has been visited and inhabited since the stone age and while strolling around it’s sometimes possible to find some ancient artifacts. The island has never had a fire on, a usual burden for all the other islands, and for that we have to thank the strong winds as well as sheep and goats that freely feast everywhere on Susac. Sheep are the reason for our visit as our shephed host will prepare a fresh whole young lamb on the spit. We believe this to be an unprecedented gourmet experience as these animals are fed with a great variety of salty rare or endemic plants. If you are looking for a wildlife gourmet experience this as genuine as it gets.

SOLTA ISLAND HONEY TOUR

SOLTA ISLAND HONEY TOUR SPLIT, CROATIA

SOLTA ISLAND HONEY TOUR BEEHIVE OPCIJA TOURS

SOLTA ISLAND HONEY TOUR BEEHIVE OPCIJA TOURS

Bees are so much more than just honey. Learn about those wonderful creatures, the problems they face in the modern world and see their beehive through a glass. Visit a real bee yard and bring back home some honey you will make yourself. Do not worry, it’s perfectly safe since you are at all times accompanied by our host, a professional beekeeper. Unique honey from Solta island which is extracted from the wild rosemary flower has been wanted and appreciated since the Antic ages. The tradition of beekeeping on Solta is confirmed by the foundation of the first beekeepers association in 1875. During the French administration in Dalmatia a special committee had evaluated the Solta honey and came to a conclusion that it was the best, not only in the whole province, but in the whole Europe. After World war II, the publishing company HOEPLI in Milano published a book “IL MIELE” which declared that honey from Solta was, because of its characteristics, amongst the three best honeys in the world. Beekeeping started within our host’s family in 1934. but the “real deal” commenced with the little kid in the middle who formed a respectable number of beehives in order to start doing it professionally. We will transfer you to island Solta with a ferry where our beekeeper awaits eagerly to show you tips and tricks of honey production in fantastic nature environment. You will produce honey, eat traditional island food and even have time for swimming and a stroll through charming villages.
