Stop At: Pakleni Islands, Opposite Hvar, Hvar, Hvar Island Croatia

Did you know that the Pakleni Islands’ name is often mistakenly translated as “Hell’s Islands”? Although the Croatian word “pakleni” translated to English corresponds with “hellish“, the name originally derives from “paklina”, an archaic word which refers to the pine resin once used to coat ships that was harvested on these islands. Kayaking is an excellent way to explore and discover the chain of 14 untouched Pakleni islets that are approximately 10 km (6.2 miles) long, with a very indented coastline and numerous wonderful bays and beaches. The islands are mainly covered with pine trees, providing you with the shade you need on hot summer days.

We use modern Sit-on-Top single and double (tandem) Feelfree kayaks fitted with deluxe seats, paddles, and all additional equipment included. Their advantage over sit-in kayaks is that they fit all types of people (including those with long legs) and, because of their open decks, there is no risk of being trapped in the kayak if it tips over. The kayaks are very stable and suitable for beginners due to their large capacity and wide bottom. We also offer dry bags (100% waterproof, 3L or 30L) where you can put all your personal belongings (towels, clothes, shoes etc.), including mobile phones, cameras and other personal items that must stay completely dry during your kayak trip.

Depending on your personal preferences, the duration of the guided kayak tour, and the weather conditions, your guide will suggest the best possible route for your kayak group. You don’t need previous experience in kayaking and our experienced guide will teach you the kayaking techniques you need to be safe and comfortable in the water. Your guide on the tour will also share with you all interesting information about the Pakleni Islands, local life on Hvar and the island’s and history, kayaking, flora and fauna around etc.

Due to our good location, many attractive places on Pakleni Islands, like beautiful pebble beaches (eg. Mlini beach), are less than 2 km or 40 - 60 minutes away (one way) from our center by paddling. On the Pakleni Islands you’ll be able to take a break with your guide and you can taste some local food or have something to drink in the nearby restaurant, swim or relax. The guide will also show you the best spots for snorkeling to enjoy Hvar’s rich underwater flora and fauna.
