WHAT KINDS OF MEALS ARE SERVED?
The fact is, that getting active goes perfectly with good and healthy food. Active Adriatic adventurers have a high-energy breakfast with lots of fruits and carbohydrates. Mediteranean cuisine is light, so we are able to keep our strength on full when eating local and traditional. As we stop to grab a lunch or dinner at the small local tourist farms or restaurants, we get pure vitamins from the organic gardens and Karst dryed ham from the local cellars. Sometimes, when the view is just too spectacular for sitting inside, we do the picnic and rest our eyes on the sea. Besides healthy breakfast, lunch and dinner, our guides have snacks available to keep us tireless and strong.
