Just six days ago famous Croatian skier Ivica Kostelic started his Mljet adventure. He teamed up with runners to explore the island he loves even more.
- We're off! Tune in for daily reports from our team, Dali Dokic, Markus Kröll and Anže Česen conquering the rocks of Mljet! – wrote Ivica on his official social media channels beneath the photo of the team six days ago.
Everybody could follow them on their journey on Facebook and Instagram, where he shared updates. Sadly, Dokic was injured, but the rest of the team kept going.
-Yeah, we did it! Ran around the whole Mljet island on the coast. 115km only razor-sharp rocks and open-water swims. Can't believe it, thanks a lot team and all supporters who made us moving everyday! – wrote Ivica, who couldn't hide how proud he is. And who could blame him!

- The Mljet expedition is finished. The sore muscles will go and the scratches & bruises will heal, but the memories will stay for pretty long, that's for sure... – he concluded today while publishing a video you can watch below.
This is not the first time he does something like this – two years ago he invited his ski colleagues to the island of Mljet for a break in the Croatian sunshine. They posted a series of videos and made a great promotion of Croatia. Former Italian skier Cristian Deville, Canadian skier Jeffrey Frisch and American downhill ace Warner Nickerson were among the group of Ivica’s friends enjoying the delights of Mljet.
This is a great way to promote our country. Mljet is surely a must-visit! Just remember – you don't have to run around it. You can lay down, relax and fall in love with the nature.
