A visit to the island of Vis is a great way to combine physical activity with discovering life on this beautiful historical island. Students will be encouraged to develop leadership skills and
cooperative skills while experiencing sea kayaking, cycling through vineyards and hiking to remote villages.
The trip is about self development, discovery of new communities and participation in everyday Croatian life. Croatian history is very diverse and the island of Vis is no exception. The trip can
be tailored to suit the curriculum requirements of your school. It can be a combination of physical experiences with History for example. The island was a Yugoslav military base until 11 years
ago and the British helped General Tito hide on the island during WW2. The locals have a first hand knowledge of the impact of conflict on the community. As far as Geography and Environmental
topics, students can understand the issues that seasonal employment has on the local economy and the positive and negative effect that tourism can have on an island.
In 2016 we organised a specialist week linking activities with a science element, this was done in cooperation with the students from Vis Island High School.
What’s special about this island is that tourism has only been allowed to develop in the last 10-15 years, and is very controlled. You won't find hotel complexes or rampant commercialisation on
Education will be combined with the friendliest of people, unspoiled, secluded coves, delicious food, stunning scenery and the cleanest waters in the Adriatic .
