From here participants will sail out to the adventure of exploring the most beautiful Croatian islands and engaging in a modern project-oriented business program.
Amazing Mediterranean scenery comprised of little harbors, stone house villages and untouched nature hides numerous opportunities for exploring, walking and cycling. A perfect first stop for an active leadership workshop, team assignments and learning opportunities out in the open.
After leaving the calm island of Šolta, we arrive on the island that has been known as the oasis of culture throughout the history. Famous for its rich nightlife, Hvar is ready to be explored by those seeking fun and adventures. But, before we let ourselves enjoy a night out, we must revisit our learning program.
The final stop before docking in Split we venture to probably the most famous island, Brač, and what is proclaimed to be among 10 of the most unique beaches in the world – Zlatni rat. A perfect destination to finish our Sail and Learn expedition around the Dalmatian islands, we will wrap up the program, evaluate our team work, and enjoy the most wonderful sights one can imagine.
