day1-lopud

Day 1: Arrival to Dubrovnik – Koločep kayaking and sailing to Šipan island
After the arrival at Dubrovnik Airport or harbour you will be transferred to Zaton Bay, a village just outside of Dubrovnik. After boarding we will sail out northwest to Lopud Island on our modern catamaran yacht for 6-10 passengers with a lot of deck space, comfort and very good sailing performance. Our first stop is Koločep island, ideal for sea kayaking. For the night we will anchor in one of the most beautiful bays of the area for dinner and a swim.
Accommodation: yacht

day2-sipan

Day 2: Sailing to Šipan island, biking and hiking
Luka Šipanska on the far end of the island, is a charming and romantic fishing village in a bay surrounded with palm trees. Its beauty makes it a favorite mooring place of sailing yachts. Šipan is the largest of Elafiti Islands and bicycles will take us to explore its landscapes, castles, chapels and monasteries. This fishing and farming island was often a target of pirates and conquerors long ago. Nowadays it attracts tourists while resisting the attacks of mass tourism. A pleasant day will be spent walking in the serene ambience of the village, tasting local seafood and wines and enjoying a swim. We will sail between the other Elafiti Islands with occassional swimming or snorkeling stops ending in Ston – a lovely old town unspoiled by tourism, with pleasant pubs and restaurants.
Accommodation: yacht

day3-mljet

Day 3: Sailing to Mljet island, cycling and swimming
The third day of your holiday is reserved for Mljet Island National Park. Two salt water lakes surrounded by a lush, green forest, the larger one with a small island in the middle, make this island a spectacular location for kayaking, hiking, cycling and swimming. We will cycle from the boat to the lakes, where we will take the kayaks and paddle to the small island with a 15th century Benedictine monastery. In the late afternoon we will sail towards the Peljesac Peninsula and anchor in a quiet bay near Zuljana Village.
Accommodation: yacht

day4-peljesac

Day 4: Sailing to peninsula Pelješac, kayaking and snorkeling
Today we explore the Peljesac Peninsula, one of the most successful and famous wine making regions in Croatia. It is a true oasis of peace with its vast vineyards, salt and oyster farms, quiet towns, narrow streets and hidden beaches. We will spend the day sea kayaking to the White Beach, a very special bay which can be reached only by boat or kayak. Its caves and reefs make it an ideal place for swimming and snorkeling. This is the last day on the boat: in the afternoon you will pick up your luggage and transfer to Zaton Bay on the mainland.
Accommodation: guesthouse in Zaton Bay

day5-korcula

Day 5: Free day – relax or take an optional trip
This day is reserved for the activity of your choice. Spend it relaxing on the beach or take an optional trip to the old walled town of Korcula. You could visit Dubrovnik if you think you won't have enough of it or you could go canoeing on Trebižat River in Bosnia and Herzegovina including the visit and walk in the old Ottoman trading town of Mostar.
Accommodation: guesthouse

day6-kolocep

Day 6: Free day – relax or take an optional trip
Spend the morning cycling in the Konavle region, a narrow valley between Mount Snjeznica and the Adriatic Sea. Enjoy the sights, scents, sounds of Konavle during the scenic cycling tour and stop for lunch in a renovated mill. Afterwards visit Cavtat, the largest settlement in Konavle, where you can board the boat that will take you to Dubrovnik for the evening. Each visit to the walled Old Town is a truly special experience. Use this opportunity to explore the narrow streets, attend a concert, visit the aquarium or just enjoy the atmosphere.
