Agricultural & Fishing
Enjoy the Bounty of the Maltese Countryside
Nature, culture, tradition and history form an interesting mix to bring about an authentic experience to visitors and locals alike.
The origins of agriculture in Malta are as old as man’s presence on the archipelago. Although Malta’s agricultural sector today is small and only accounts for about 2.8% of GDP, it is diverse. Most farms are small and privately owned. Whether it is olive cultivation, wine-making, dairy farming or honey-making, the Maltese have always derived a sense of pride from their agricultural abilities. Mediterranean fruits such as citrus fruits and figs are amongst our forte. Local sun dried tomatoes, pickles and jams are a must try.
An Agricultural Tour provides the opportunity to experience the Maltese countryside from a truly unique perspective as you learn more about Mediterranean farming and taste the fresh produce along the way.
A Fishing Adventure like no other
Since people have inhabited Malta, fishing has been the primary industry; the placid waters surrounding the island boast an extensive variety of sea-life… Fishing enthusiasts are treated to fishing expeditions in Malta on traditional Maltese fishing boats where they can try their skills at techniques like trolling, light tackle and bottom fishing, or for the more adventurous, a swim in tuna pens. Apart from the possibility of a delicious Mediterranean catch, few experiences can match the serene sensation of a day spent gently drifting on the glittering Mediterranean.
