This holiday is designed for those who love traveling, being active outdoors and exploring seaside, nature, heritage, history and art. Daily routes are rather short - 2 to 3 hours of easy sea kayaking - and not demanding, fit for all ages between 14 and late sixties (no previous sea kayaking experience is necessary). Dubrovnik in Croatia– one of the world’s most beautiful old towns - and Elafiti shorelines are rich in history and natural variety - cliffs, caves, pine and palm trees, hidden coves, reefs, sandy beaches...

Lopud, Kolocep and Sipan belong to Elafiti Islands Archipelago – 13 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. You will spend a day exploring each island and Dubrovnik. They are not just places of incredible natural beauties but also open air museums of history, art, architecture and folklore. And there will be a day for an optional excursion to Herzegovina rivers for rafting or canoeing or Mljet Island National Park.

Our base is Lopud Island, 1 hour by ferry from Dubrovnik harbor. A small town of the same name with three hotels, several restaurants and cafes, 2 sandy beaches, no cars and great sunsets. You will stay in simple but clean and pleasant rooms in traditional stone houses. Rooms in 3- and 4-star hotel are available on request, a surcharge depending on type of hotel/room and season. Self-catering apartments are available as well.

Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: Arrival. Arrive at Dubrovnik airport, harbour or bus station. Our representative will meet you and give you the details of your transfer to Lopud island. The transfer is organized either by a local ferry that runs four times a day or by speedboat. Upon your arrival to Lopud and settling into your accommodation, there will be time for a walk before meeting with your guide and the group over dinner and discussing the upcoming holiday.

Accommodation: Lopud. Includes: (D).

Day 2: Safety instructions, introduction to kayaking and the equipment. Sea kayaking to Sipan island, hiking or cycling. Safety instructions will take place in the Lopud Bay this morning. Get the feel of your kayak and practice paddling before embarking on the first journey – kayaking to Sipan island. Sipan has colorful villages of Sudjuradj and Luka Sipanska. The fields between them have preserved the real country life style, 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 witnessed its history. We will explore them by walking or cycling and there will be plenty of time to relax as well. We will kayak back to Lopud late in the afternoon.
- Accommodation: Lopud. Includes: (B), (D).
- Distance: 6 km kayaking each way.

Note: hiking or cycling will take place depending on group abilities, weather and temperature.

Day 3: Kayaking Lopud-Sunj, hiking back to Lopud village. Back in our kayaks today as we get ready to paddle half way around Lopud to its sandy Sunj beach. We will explore the island's coastline as we slowly paddle to one of the most popular beaches in the area. After lunch on the beach, feel free to chill out at one of the beach bars, go for a swim or just grab a deck chair and enjoy the afternoon. There are three walking paths leading back to Lopud – the quickest one is 20-30 minutes on foot and two more scenic paths will take you along the cliffs or up the hill to the island's fort.

Snorkeling gear will be provided for you to explore the rich and colorful underwater world of the Adriatic. With occasional swimming and snorkeling stops, we reach Skerac, kayaker's favourite restaurant in time for a break and optional lunch. Late in the afternoon we kayak back to Lopud's Sunj beach.
