John & Rachael's choice of Korcula Island's best tours, accommodation & transfers
Join us from Korcula Town, as we journey the length of the island and spend the day tasting and discovering one of Korcula’s prized products, olive oil. Whether or not you consider yourself to be an olive oil connoisseur, this is a fantastic tour for anyone who wants to see a side to Korcula Island so few get to explore.
A drive through the hills and villages of the beautiful Island of Korcula sets us off on our adventure. Within an hour (with some photo stops on the way), we will arrive at the town of Blato. Our first olive oil tasting is with one of the oldest wine and olive oil production companies on the island. At their central tasting room, we will enjoy two olive oils and three wines served with some traditional savoury and sweet delicacies. Afterwards we will take a short drive for a vineyard and olive oil production tour and a visit to a small onsite soap-maker, who uses olive oil in some of their products.
Our next stop is in the port town of Vela Luka, a 10-minute journey from Blato. Here we will visit a family run olive oil museum and factory, which houses some traditional tools, to learn more about the production of olive oil in the area. Of course we will also get to sample their olive oil as well. Our tour then takes us briefly up the road to another family run mill. We will spend a short time here listening to their interesting olive oil story before we head into the countryside.
For our final tasting we drive along country lanes to the olive grove of one of Korcula Island’s most renowned olive oil producers. Here we meet our host over an olive infused cup of tea before wandering around the olive trees. We return to the small rural family house for an olive oil tasting with a guided lesson. As we relax in nature and enjoy the spectacular views, we will then be served a tasty three course late lunch with wine, including the traditional Dalmatian dish “peka”. It’s then time to return back to Korcula Town.
