  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The reason for visiting the island Vis is it's natural beauty and traditional Dalmatian food, as well the island's atmosphere. From all the major Dalmatian islands Vis is significantly more peaceful with a hint of eco-tourism and spiritual tourism ( yoga and meditation retreats..). With its numerous unpaved roads trough nature and towards stunning beaches it is trekkers and bikers paradise. In the summertime many events are happening all over the island such as music, art festivals and small village annual celebrations...
    We also offer Kundalini Yoga classes free of charge for our Workawayers.
    Vis provides a perfect challenge for permaculture entusiasts with dry powerful summers and a mild rainy winters, rocks based soil, mostly poor of nutrients..soil regeneration is the keyword ;)
