Why take this tour?

Above Vela Luka, about an hour and a half walk from center of the town, you will find the highest peak of west part of Korčula island. On the top of the hill, overlooking the south Adriatic sea and more than thirty island is a fortress built by Habsburg empire. After exploring and finding out more about the fort, we descend to Pičena cove and walk along the coast of Vela Luka bay back to our starting point. It is possible to arrange for dinner/lunch at a restaurant in Pičena cove where you can also enjoy a swim or a short kayak tour. From the bay it is possible to get transfers back to town, either by a car or a boat. The distance we will cover is about 10 kilometers, with 450 meters of altitude gain (about 6 miles and 1500 feet of elevation gain) which usually takes about 3 hours.
