Hvar – one of the most beautiful islands in the world
We have found the ideal location for an early race and for a race in the Mediterranean. Croatia and Hvar is a dream come true location. We are proud to kick- off the European swimrun season and welcome you the ÖTILLÖ Hvar Swimrun Weekend.
The island is magnificient, surrounded by emerald-colored seas and the exceptional Paklinski islands to the south. Hvar is known to be one of the most beautiful islands in the world. Just one hour off the mainland city of Split makes the ferry ride a perfect place to relax into the island vibe.
Rosemary, lavender, wine, more than a 2000-year old history; just simply, a unique place for a unique race.
The weather in this period is perfect for swimrun with water temperatures between 15 – 17 degrees and about 20 degrees in the air. In the sun it will get hot and you will really have to think about your heat management on the long runs.
The water is salty so you will have very good buoyancy however it adds a bit of chafing. Like everything in swimrun; there is always a negative with the positive.
If you have energy left for the closing party you will experience the fantastic local food with locally grown produce. The local wines are superb. Did you know that the local Plavac grape is the mother of Syrah/ Zinfandel?
Travel to Hvar
The best way to get to the Island of Hvar is to fly to Split, Croatia. From Split airport you take a 30-minute bus or taxi to the harbour where there are daily ferries to the Island of Hvar. Make sure you take the ferry to Town of Hvar and not Stari Grad. Book your tickets in advance on www.jadrolinija.hr/en or http://krilo.aktiva-info.hr/eng/frmPregledSlobodnoEng.aspx

InCroatia travel, our local partner for Hvar have finalized a pre-race package for those of you deciding to arrive to ZADAR from Stockholm, London or Manchester on Ryanair flights. It’s quite convenient as there are very reasonable flights on Ryanair from all three of these destinations that all arrive within half hour into Zadar airport, late night.
It will be too late to catch the Hvar ferry, so you are transferred to a great place to sleep en route, where you can also do some training the next morning before setting out to Hvar.
