Korčula Town: Mljet National Park Hiking Tour

5. Korčula Town: Mljet National Park Hiking Tour

The western part of Mljet Island, which was declared a national park in 1960, takes most of the credit for the island being dubbed the ‘green island’. 90% of the total land area of the park is covered in forests of holm oaks and Aleppo pines. The national park includes two inlets which, due to their extremely narrow links to the sea, are regarded as, and indeed are called, lakes: the Great Lake and the Small Lake. Both are encircled by footpaths, and their blue-green waters are fabulous for plunging into. This hiking tour starts with a catamaran. After meeting with your local tour guide in Korčula Town, you'll take a public catamaran (30 minutes) to reach Pomena, a seaside hamlet on the western tip of Mljet Island. From there, you'll hike in the direction of the Veliki Gradac Hill. The path meanders through a forest, opening here and there to wonderful views. At one moment, the lakes will appear as if in the palm of your hand! Probably, you will not be able to stand the view – it’s simply stunning! Later, from the top of the Montokuc Hill (253 m), you'll see the whole national park, the Pelješac Peninsula, and in the distance, the islands of Korčula and Lastovo... From the Montokuc viewpoint, you’ll descend to the shore of the Great Lake, and there, you’ll take a boat to St. Mary’s Islet. In the 12th century, the Benedictine Monastery was built on the islet. During the time of the Republic of Dubrovnik, the monastery was enlarged, during the time of Yugoslavia, it was turned into a hotel, and today it emerges from the green of Mljet’s vegetation as a Renaissance monumental residence… Since you are already here, why not jump into the lakes? The main characteristic of this hike lies in its great contrasts – the tranquil, turquoise water of the lakes, the restless sea on the south coast; the shade of dense woodland, the brightness of hot sun-light; a panoramic view from the Montokuc viewpoint, a close-up view of St. Mary’s Islet… If you yearn for a fairy tale hike, this is it! On this hiking tour, you’ll learn about the formation of the lakes, the lush vegetation, the cultural heritage, and the history of the island. You’ll find out what Odysseus was doing for seven years on Mljet Island (and he didn’t age a single day), why there are no vipers, and why there are wild boars, and finally, Mljet’s shades of green will heal your heart, your body and your soul.

A fost foarte frumos și interesant, multe locuri frumoase și am avut posibilitatea de a afla multe lucruri interesante. Ghizii au fost foarte bravi! Mulțumesc pentru asta. As recomanda ca pentru alți turiști sa ia cu ei bani cheș pentru ca in parcul unde se închiriază bicicleta nu este posibil de a achita cu cardul bancar, dar ghizii noștri s-au înțeles pentru noi și am putut achita mai tirziu cu cheș. Mulțumim Recomand acest tur !!!

The trip was fantastic and filled with activities! The boat was also very comfortable and smooth. Marko was a really great guide and completely put the timings of things in our hands - no rushing or moving us along and always on hand with water and grapes! We visited Mljet national park and the Elaphiti islands and did lots of swimming and snorkelling. Really good value for money. Would highly recommend.

Excellent day trip from Dubrovnik, the guide Marko did his best to give us all the best experience. He gave us the option on how much time we wanted to spend at each place. This was one of the highlights of my time in Dubrovnik and I met some other interesting people on the tour. Just book it and you won’t regret it. 10/10

I felt that it was meaningful to participate in not only the island but also the unexplored caves and beaches. It costs a lot of money, but I think it's a tour well worth the money. Also, I was with two children, but the guide was very kind and kind, so the children enjoyed it very much!

This was a great full day tour where we got to cycle around the lakes on Mljet, snorkel in Odysseys cave, visit a secluded beach, enjoy the clear water in the blue cave, have lunch on Lopud island. Fantastic day. The your guides were absolutely amazing and super friendly. Highly recommended!
