This tour is designed for those who love being active in the nature. Daily routes are rather short - 2 to 3 hours of easy paddling - and not demanding, fit for all ages between 14 and late sixties (no previous kayaking experience is necessary). Dubrovnik and Elafiti shorelines are rich in history and natural variety - cliffs, caves, coves, rocks, beaches. Lopud, Kolocep and Sipan belong to Elafiti Islands Archipelago - green islands covered by pine forests, without car traffic, with lots of sunshine and sandy beaches, less than an hour sailing time from Dubrovnik. Each has no more than a couple of hundreds permanent residents who live in stone houses of traditional character. Tall palm trees, parks, gardens and flowers everywhere contribute to easy going life style. Occasionally groups of kayaks are escorted by friendly dolphins or tunas that are often seen in the area.

Your Itinerary:

Day 1: Arrival to Dubrovnik Airport and transfer to Lopud Island

Traveling by bus and boat. Accommodation in a house very near the beach and waterfront and main street of the little town of Lopud. There will be time to enjoy a swim in the sea and a walk to Fort Kastio on the island’s highest peak for a wonderful view of the sunset over the Elafiti Islands. A tour of Lopud's pubs and cafés will take place before and after dinner.
Meals: dinner

Day 2: Sea Kayaking Lopud and Sipan islands

Safety and sea kayaking instructions will take place on a sandy beach of Lopud. After that, we will kayak to the nearby island of Sipan. On Sipan you will find the colorful villages of Sudjuradj and Luka Sipanska. The fields between them have preserved chapels, monasteries, palaces and summer houses of ancient Dubrovnik aristocracy, and the real country lifestyle. This island is rich in cultural heritage, tales from the past and many well preserved monuments that witnessed its turbulent history. We will explore them by walking or cycling and there will be plenty of time to enjoy Luka’s beaches and restaurants. We will return to Lopud by late afternoon.
Meals: breakfast and dinner (picnic lunch on your own)

Day 3: Sea Kayaking & Snorkeling Lopud island

We will kayak around the island to the sandy beach of Sunj Bay on Lopud’s Southern side. This is the most popular beach of Dubrovnik so we visit it on Monday when it’s not too busy. Diving mask, snorkel and fins will be provided for you to explore the rich and colorful underwater world of the Adriatic. A pleasant walk back to the village for dinner takes only half hour, but you are welcome to hike the longer western route through the forest and along the high cliff edge.
Meals: breakfast and dinner (picnic lunch on your own)

Day 4: Sea Kayaking, swimming, snorkeling and walking Kolocep island

Paddle, swim and snorkel around Kolocep island, Croatia's most interesting island sea kayaking and hiking with its most dramatic scenery full of hidden dark caves, high cliffs and colorful reefs. Walk through Gornje Celo and Donje Celo, well preserved romantic Mediterranean villages and along high cliffs. Have a pleasant noon siesta in the quiet and relaxing atmosphere of Gornje Celo turquoise bay near Skerac – kayakers’ favorite restaurant. Late in the afternoon we shall return to Lopud.
Meals: breakfast and dinner (picnic lunch on your own)

Day 5: Leisure day, visit Dubrovnik town

For those who chose a 5-day trip, this is the end of your holiday. For the rest of the group - beach day. You are free to do whatever you enjoy the most. Sunbathing, swimming, snorkeling, walking, sea kayaking. Or take the ferry to Dubrovnik, the most beautiful of all Croatian and Mediterranean towns, for sightseeing, shopping in ancient streets, walking along city walls… Ice cream or coffee taste best in open air bistros along Stradun, old town’s main street and promenade. Lokrum island Reserve and its rocky beaches are worth exploring and only about 10 minutes by boat from the old town harbor. Return to Lopud in the evening.
Meals: breakfast and dinner (picnic lunch on your own)

Day 6: Kayak Rijeka Dubrovacka

Back in our sea kayaks today, we explore Rijeka Dubrovacka. Rijeka Dubrovacka ("The River of Dubrovnik") is a deep bay protected from wind by the surrounding mountains, making it ideal for sea kayaking. We will enjoy the views of traditional 15th and 16th century waterfront Dubrovnik Villas as we kayak past them. We will spend the afternoon in the Old Town of Dubrovnik.
Meals: breakfast and dinner (picnic lunch on your own)
 
Day 7: Sea kayaking Trsteno

The last sea kayaking trip destination is usually Trsteno village and arboretum – a wonderful park with a collection of exotic plants and trees, Neptune’s fountain and great views of the islands. A farewell party is planned after sunset of the last evening on Lopud. Meals: breakfast and dinner (picnic lunch on your own)
