Fragrant winter of Lošinj

The island of Lošinj is the ideal destination for those coming for a romantic weekend or to restore their energy in the winter months. We invite you to visit Lošinj to discover for yourself why it is called the Island of Vitality, and to enjoy the area's wonderful nature and professional services.

If you prefer a pleasant, romantic and above all healthy environment to winter landscapes, we strongly recommend visiting the island of Lošinj. Each month, local hotels and restaurants offer something very special related to the plants and fruits that thrive on the island. The beginning of each year is traditionally dedicated to citrus fruits – oranges as the most prominent citrus fruit, lemon as the king of vitamin C, and the extraordinarily delicious mandarin. Many Lošinj's hotels and restaurants offer various beverages, desserts, dishes and medicinal preparations made with these fruits, and the visitors are also invited to take part at interesting workshops led by professional aromatherapists. There you will have the chance to learn more about why mandarin essential oil is called the "children's remedy", or how to use lemon to purify your body and your home from toxins.
However, fragrances are just a part of this February's overall offer on Lošinj. Visitors are also invited to take part in carnival events dressed like Lošinj's captains – historical personalities that are closely related to the local tourism offer.
If you are planning a visit to Lošinj for Valentine's Day, a special surprise is waiting for you – relaxation in the luxury Chocotel, breakfast in bed, romantic weekend and chocolate workshop. Those who want to learn something new are invited to join Adrian's fragrant cuisine workshops: each Saturday in February, Adrijano Nikolić, a famous chef from Lošinj, in collaboration with the Mali Lošinj Tourism Office, will prepare various specialities – with emphasis on typical dishes and spices of Lošinj – in the Hotel Apoxyomenos.
Another good news is coming from the Lošinj Hotels & Villas group: in the period between the 11th of February and the 17th of April, visitors can benefit from free transportation between Zagreb – Mali Lošinj – Zagreb. All you have to do is book accommodation in one of the properties of the Lošinj Hotels & Villas group.
