Dubrovnik Croatia - Multi activity Adriatic islands adventure 8 days/7 nights.


This itinerary is designed for those who wish to mix exploring coastal nature with culture, history and art. Dubrovnik, one of world’s most beautiful old towns, offers centuries of beautiful culture, while the Elafiti shorelines offer great natural variety: cliffs, caves, pine and palm trees, hidden coves, reefs and sandy beaches. Daily kayak outings are rather short (two to three hours of easy paddling) and not demanding. This trip is perfect for active people 14 years old and above. No previous kayaking experience is necessary.
 

Lopud, Kolocep and Sipan belong to Elafiti Islands Archipelago, 13 islands near Dubrovnik. They are not just places of incredible natural beauties but also open air museums of history, art, architecture and folklore. Each island has no more than a couple of hundred permanent residents who live in traditional stone houses. Tall palm trees, parks, gardens and flowers in the towns contribute to easy going life style. We will spend a day exploring each island and Dubrovnik. There will also be a day for an optional excursion to Herzegovina rivers for rafting or canoeing or to Mljet Island National Park.

Our base is Lopud Island, one hour from Dubrovnik harbor by ferry, in a small town of the same name. It is quaint, with three hotels, several restaurants and cafés, two sandy beaches, no cars and great sunsets. We will stay in simple rooms in traditional stone houses. 3 and 4-star hotel options are available on request, with a surcharge depending on type of hotel/room and season.


ITINERARY


Day 1 - Sat: We transfer from Dubrovnik Airport to Lopud Island by bus and ferry. Our rooms are very near the beach and waterfront, on the main street of the little town of Lopud. There will be time to enjoy a swim in the sea and walk to Fort Kastio on island’s highest peak for a wonderful view of sunset over Elafiti Islands. A tour of Lopud seaside pubs and cafés will take place before and after dinner.


Day 2 - Sun: After some kayaking instruction on the sandy beach in front of your hotel and lunch, we will be ready for our first paddling. We will kayak around the island to a sandy beach of Sunj Bay on Lopud’s Southern side. A diving mask, snorkel and fins will be provided for you to explore the rich and colorful underwater world of the Adriatic. We walk back to the village for dinner (20 minutes), passing historic churches along the way.






 

Day 3 - Mon: We leave in the morning to the island of Sipan and the colorful villages of Sudjuradj and Luka Sipanska. The fields between these villages have preserved the traditional country life style with chapels, monasteries, palaces and summer houses of ancient Dubrovnik aristocracy. This island is unbelievably rich in cultural heritage, tales from the past and well preserved monuments that have witnessed its turbulent history. We will explore them by walking and bicycling, with some time to enjoy Luka beaches and restaurants. We will return to Lopud by late in the afternoon.


Day 4 - Tue:Today we will relax on Lopud beaches, cafés and parks and perhaps take another interesting hike to historic sites on the island. Optionally you can take a ferry to Dubrovnik (50 minutes) and enjoy this fascinating old town on your own.



Day 5 - Wed: Paddle, swim and snorkel around Kolocep Island, the most interesting for sea kayaking and hiking. You will surely be impressed by the dramatic scenery with hidden dark caves, high cliffs and colorful reefs. Walk through Gornje Celo and Donje Celo, well preserved romantic Mediterranean villages, and along high cliffs. Late in the afternoon we shall take the ferry to Dubrovnik, the most beautiful of all Mediterranean towns, for sightseeing, shopping in ancient streets, walking along city walls… Gelato or coffee taste the best in open air bistros along Stradun, the old town’s main street and promenade. We return to Lopud in the evening.


Days 6 - Thu and 7 - Fri: Beach days. You are free to do whatever you enjoy the most. Sunbathing, swimming, snorkeling, walking, kayaking. Optionally, you can participate in 1-day canoeing or rafting excursion in Hercegovina or boat trips to Mljet National Park (to be booked and paid on spot). A farewell party is planned after sunset on our last evening on Lopud.



 

Day 8 - Sat: Transfer to Dubrovnik for flight home or onward.
