The Kornati islands

hr

The Kornati islands as we know them today surely wouldn't look like this if it hadn't been for the hand of a man. The trace of a man, his engagement and activities he has done to live and to survive in this place are the base on which the program Real KORNATI started on. Our guests have the opportunity to live the life of a Kurnatar, with its domicile inhabitants, learn about work in agriculture, livestock farming and ships.

the PROGRAM

The participants of the program are free to use their free time for recreation, sports or sightseeing. A walk, hiking or a sightseeing tour by a tour guide as well as swimming, diving or just reading a book in meditative silence - it is only a matter of personal choice.

the ACTIVITIES

The activities depend only on weather conditions, season, time of the year. For possible rainy days we have prepared educational programs which include lessons and projections on history of the Kornati islands.

the EVERYDAY NEEDS

Everyday life in Kornati is a special experience. Gardening, taking care of olive trees, sheep trimming, fishing to provide for everyday food, collecting rare fruits of nature, preparing food in a way our ancestors used to prepare it... are just some of countless “everyday skills” which a man in Kornati needs to have in order to survive.

ecology (and PHILOSOPHY)

hr

It is important to emphasize that the whole land and life philosophy of the host is based on principals of renewable energy sources and preservation of natural and cultural heritage. It is also based on the spiritual element of the experience the guests will take with them after they had spent time in Real KORNATI program.


Therefore the water which is used in the household is the rainwater collected in special tanks, the electrical energy is gained through sun collectors and water heating is also performed with the help of sun energy. It is necessary to make our guests aware of the importance of saving all of these resources as well as multi functioning of water use - water recycling ( for example for clothes washing and then using that water for toilette rinsing) and usage of sea water where possible. It is also important to take care of the lodgement and garbage transport and all of the organic waste is used for composting in agriculture.

We can say that our motto is:

"We use the gifts of nature in the amount that we need to live, without wasting them or overusing them."

This way we are spreading the awareness of values of the natural resources, we educate our guests and harmonize our life habits with natural processes. This form of sustainable tourism is the only right and possible way to experience Kornati, preserve them and learn about their history and meaning together with so much needed rest and relaxation. uests, who spend their vacation in program return home full of impressions of priceless experience from real local life, with new knowledge and discovery about our planet, sea, land, stone and more important, they return home with a new view on life, environment and human relations. All of this cannot be measured with money and that is what we see when we get the opportunity to have such an experience.


Life after Real KORNATI experience will not be the same as before… Only the fourth wise man could bear the happiness. Because it is allowed to gain wealth, joy, knowledge, talent, but poor is the one not strong enough. Some of them die, some lose their sense, some bury the treasure inside of them and share with no one. The light of elysian gardens turns into darkness in them. Happiness can bear only the ones who share it. The light becomes a blessing only inside of those who give it to others…

"Happiness can bear only the ones who share it.
The light becomes a blessing only inside of those who give it to others"…Béla Hamvas
