Participants will stay in hotel Pharos, which is 5 min walk from the event venue. 

Accommodation will be in single or double occupancy rooms according to your registration order and fee payment and will be arranged by the Course Organizers. Only a few single rooms will be available.


Regardless of which type of transportation you choose, undoubtedly you will experience a crystalline Adriatic Sea journey to Hvar island.

The closest international airport is Split Aiport, which has direct flights to all major airports in Europe including Frankfurt, London, Munich, Paris, and Vienna.

Split Airport is situated 30 km from the Split ferry dock. Buses drive from Split Airport to Split Main Bus Station (~40 min). Split Main Bus Station is directly adjacent to the Split port, so it is easy to continue your journey to Hvar by catamaran (1 hour) or ferry (2 hours – for those who arrive by car). Catamaran stops in Hvar, very close to the venue (pleasant walk of 15 min), while the ferry stops in Stari Grad, approximately 19 km from the venue. 

You can also contact the hotel (transfers@suncanihvar.com) so they can organise your transfer. This option is more expensive but the price is lower if more poeple travel together.
