OLIVE PICKING ON ISLAND KRK

  • Destination: Croatia
  • Duration: 4 days

Not only vineyards but also the endless olive groves cover island Krk. Every year in October and November precious fruits are picked, to make olive oil of the highest quality. To get one litre (about 0,26 gallons) of olive oil, about 3000 olives (approximately 7 kilos) need to be picked! “Equipped” with buckets we climb to the olive groves to participate in the picking. Afterwards a lunch from the grill awaits us, and, of course, a bottle of precious, delicious oil.
