Pag is a 60 km long island of North Dalmatia that is known for its rocky slopes where one can find only a few blades of aromatic herbs. Due to the lack of greenery, Pag's landscape has often been compared with the surface of the moon. And since this island has been inhabited from the Neolithic Era, it hosts a truly rich cultural experience.
After departing Zadar, enjoy a lovely ride into the island of Pag. Upon arrival, enjoy a sightseeing tour of Pag. Visit the town`s most important sights and spend some free time having a coffee break. Visit to the Museum of Lace and the Museum of Salz where you will find out more about the local traditions and life in Pag throughout history.
Head towards the picturesque village of Kolan where you can enjoy the stunning island landscapes. A tour of the Gligora cheese factory is also on the cards. It offers a unique insight into the rich heritage of Paski sir, a hard cheese famous for its aroma and quality. Stop at local konoba for some traditional lunch.
The lacework of Pag is also listed in UNESCO`s World Intangible Cultural Heritage Register. The local women mastered this form of art back in the 15th century and many secrets have been passed down from one generation to the other. Besides lace, salt is another treasure that the island boasts of. In fact, the production of salt dates back more than 1000 years!
