Description of Croatia family activity week
This week long family holiday adventure on the Island of Vis in Croatia, is best described as relaxingly active. Youll be based on Vis, a beautiful island with peaceful coves, unspoiled landscapes, crystal clear Adriatic waters and great local food and wine. Our love and knowledge of the island will help your family access all its hidden corners, enjoying sea kayaking, biking, hiking, paddleboarding, yoga by the sea and slacklining in the pine forest.
Our home, that we would like to share with you on Vis Island is a stone house in a small and local village. It has four bedrooms, each with a private bathroom. We have a shared open plan living room and kitchen, terraces for relaxing in the shade and a large balcony for evening meals. The house is near the sea, so you and your family can walk to one of the many beaches for swimming, snorkelling, fishing or simply relax any time in the clear Adriatic waters.
We keep guests numbers to nine people and this means when it comes to activities and the shape of your weeks stay with us, we are not restricted to a strict schedule. We have a chat with the families staying and plan the next days activities based on what the weather will be doing, everyones fitness levels and interests. Kayaking, snorkelling, paddle boarding and biking are favourites and we have all the equipment and experience to ensure everyone taking part has fun, stays safe and can explore all the islands highlights. We also try to put families with similar age children together to make a weekly adventure.
We believe that enjoying great food is as important on this holiday as the activities. At the house, you will have seven breakfasts, four lunches, afternoon cake and three evening meals. All meals served at the house are vegetarian, often plant based made using the excellent island produce. When dinner is not prepared at the house, well drive you to some of the really special places to eat and enjoy the local wine that Vis offers, from agro tourism places inland to wonderful fish restaurants and great places to soak up the Dalmatian island atmosphere.
We have 11 years PE teaching background and an enormous passion for Vis island. We love sharing our 'Relaxingly Active' concept with families of all ages, and all levels of fitness and experience. Safety is a priority and we also ensure that the children are excited, motivated and thoroughly enjoying themselves, which in turn allows parents to relax and relish the experience, too. This isnt a holiday for families looking to lie on the beach all day; its about exploring everything that the island has to offer and with our guidance, creating a daily family adventure.
Come and experience this Croatian gem of an island, allowing us to help you make the most out of each day of your holiday. We offer a £200 discount for children under 15 years.

Private transport for guests on the Island is not recommended. Once you arrive to Vis Island, we will provide pick up and drop off to and from the ferry. On the days that guests are not eating at the house we will provide transport to and from local restaurants as a group, with local restaurants that are accessible by foot also highly recommended.
Our daily transport will predominantly involve a combination of kayaks, bikes and hikes. This is by for the best way to explore the many colours of Vis Island and it is far more suited to our goal of enjoying and preserving the beauty of Vis.
At our base, we are committed to small group adventures and have only vegan and locally sourced, seasonal ingredients whenever possible from our neighbours.
ENVIRONMENT AND WILDLIFE
WearActive we only served local wine and spirits produced on the island. We are actively involved in beach clean initiatives and we have a policy of no single use plastic and we recycle where possible. As we are kayaking with our guests we always encourage an awareness of our environment and at the start of the week to chat to our guests about the island resources, our solar, respect of our neighbours, community and the responsible use of water and air conditioning. We also have a close connection to an NGO group of marine biologists on the island who we invite to chat to our guests who are interested in the marine life of Vis and we also help them raise awareness with various initiatives.
We are an independent company that have turned our home and love of the island into a small group activity holiday. We only have four rooms and we are have strived to be involved within our small community.
EMPLOYMENT, INCLUSIVITY AND DIVERSITY
With close ties to the island, we make sure we use local guides and have partnerships with Vis Island businesses. Our neighbour hood taxi, boat trips, historical island guides are all from Vis Island and we work with them because they have similar values to our company, they are local and they are passionate about the island.
