Highlights

Enjoy a guided sea-kayaking excursion around Dubrovnik's city walls, cycle in the Konavle Valley, hike along Dalmatian cliffs, visit the island of Kolocep, wander in Dubrovnik's old town.

Tour description provided by G Adventures

Dotted with unspoiled islands, secluded beaches, and miles of coastal paths, the Dalmatian Coast remains one of Eastern Europe’s most beautiful destinations. Ideal for travellers looking to try a variety of things in an out-of-the-way place, this idyllic slice of Croatia along the surprisingly balmy Adriatic is practically bursting with outdoorsy potential. Hike and bike the ruggedly beautiful rocky coastlines, paddle a sea kayak to an uninhabited island, or just laze about on the beach and let the time pass. The choice is yours, and the choices are infinite.

Itinerary

Day 1 Dubrovnik
You can arrive at any time on Day 1 as there are no activities planned. There will be a brief meeting in the evening where you will meet your CEO and fellow group members, as well as complete some admin and learn more about our trip to come. After the meeting, you may choose to join your CEO and group for an optional dinner in a local restaurant. Today is a good day to visit the Old Town of Dubrovnik if there is time. Overnight on Lapad Peninsula.
Day 2 Dubrovnik (1B)
We start today with a walking tour around the Old Town of Dubrovnik. Enter the Old Town, and wander past the Rectors Palace, St. Saviour's Church and the Renaissance archiecture of the Sponza Palace. The terracotta roofs that define the Old Town were destroyed during the war, but are now all as good as new and a great sight as you make your way down to the harbour. Stop for a drink and watch ships passing in and out. After a stroll in the Old Town, it's time to stretch the legs further and get out around the hills of the city. The peninsula on which Dubrovnik sits is surrounded on all sides by hills. A walk up Srd Hill takes us up over the city, where we can look down on the old town and see the beauty of the city. For those who fancy a more leisurely journey to the summit, there is a cable car that takes you to the top, and back down again. Overnight on Lapad Peninsula
Day 3 Lopud Island/Dubrovnik (1B)
The Dalmatian Coast, of which Croatia is part, is formed of over a thousand islands. One of the Elaphiti islands, Lopud is dotted with churches and monasteries, as well as countless walking trails. With a whole day here, there's time to enjoy the variety of walks on offer, or take a sip in the warm waters of the ocean. if you prefer, just relax at the quaint harbour in the town. Ferry to Lopud from Dubrovnik - approx. 1 hour. Overnight on Lapad Peninsula
Day 4 Dubrovnik (1B)
Dubrovnik was once a great city state, rivalling Venice for it's wealth and skill, and the walls of the city that remain provide an excellent reminder of the power once held within. Today, after a stroll to the Old Town, we head out on the waters of the Adriatic to get a different perspective on the city. After a safety briefing, head out around the coast and the city walls by kayak, on a route that circles the island of Lokrum, and along the imposing city walls. Be sure to test the water and be surprised by quite how warm it is. Overnight on Lapad Peninsula
Day 5 Konavle Valley/Dubrovnik (1B)
Inland from Dubrovnik the land is green and fertile, giving a good idea as to why this land would have been such a good location for a city state to spring up. After a short transfer from Dubrovnik to the Konavle Valley, where we pick up our bikes. Cycling along country track, between vineyards and watermills, there might even be time to stop at a vineyard and get to try some of the local wine. Croatian wine is becoming more popular across the world, and after a day on the bikes, there's no better way to unwind. Overnight on Lapad Peninsula
Day 6 Kolocep/Dubrovnik (1B)
The Dalmatian Coast is dotted with over a thousand islands, many of which are ideal locations to get away from the crowds. We head for Kolocep today, one of the three inhabited Elaphiti Islands. From the port at Dubrovnik, it's a short ferry ride across to Kolocep, where we can try snorkelling, trekking or, many people's favourite option, relaxing on the beach. Boat to Kolocep - 5km (approx. 20 minutes) Overnight on Lapad Peninsula
