We created this short getaway for people who love to explore alot in a short time, with activities like hikung, kayaking, sailing and hiking through villages and scenic trails.

You will be accomodated in Sipanska Luka, a small village on Sipan, the biggest of the Elaphiti archipelago islands. First day is about getting there and adjusting to the island. On the second day, we’ll lace up our hiking boots and hike on Lopud Island, famous for its car-less streets, sandy beaches and rugged landscapes.

But the excitement doesn’t stop there. Get ready to paddle your way through day three, through crystal-clear waters on a kayaking adventure around the Elaphiti Islands. Keep your eyes peeled for glimpses of dolphins, as these enchanting creatures call these waters home. Our kayaking expedition will be followed by an afternoon sailing trip.

Throughout our journey, you’ll have the opportunity to indulge in authentic Croatian cuisine and engage with the local community. From fresh seafood delicacies to traditional flavors, each culinary experience will be a true delight for our taste buds.

This break can be easily combined with other Huck Finn 4-day trips in all parts of Croatia and the neighboring countries.

Arrival at destination – Luka Sipanska

Your adventure begins in Gruz harbour, and we recommend catching the 2:00 PM ferry for the best start, even though there are later options available. Upon your arrival to the island, we will transfer you to Sipanska Luka and your accommodation. Once you’ve settled in, we’ll suggest some easy walks for your first day.

Feel free to shape your day—whether unwinding on the beach, enjoying a meal at one of the locally-owned restaurants, or immersing yourself in the local culture. You can discover the communal spirit through the game of bocce ball, a beloved pastime in this area. Witness or join locals gathering each evening for a friendly game, highlighting the warmth that defines Sipan.

Lopud Island Hiking

Today we will explore the nearby Lopud Island. Lopud has many beautiful walking routes that take one from the shore to the top of the island and back. This island’s true treasures are its tiny churches and an ancient fort strategically located at one of its highest points. In the past it served as an observation point and was used to protect the island’s safety. Descend to the natural sand beach Sunj for a relaxing day, where you can visit seaside restaurants with a sea swing and hammocks nestled in the forest—an ideal place to enjoy a drink in the island’s tranquillity.

Elaphiti Islands Sea Kayaking and Afternoon Sailing

The Elaphiti Islands are a paradise for sea kayaking and snorkelling. We set out from Luka Sipanska, paddling west towards Jakljan, Tajan, and Olipa islands. These islands offer hidden beaches indented coastlines, perfect for exploration. All three are uninhabited and their beaches can only be accessed from a small boat or kayak, resulting in several secluded beaches and a rich, undisturbed underwater world.

In the afternoon, a catamaran will take us on a sailing trip around the area. Occasionally our boat is met by friendly dolphin as we enjoy the sun setting over the Elaphiti. Return to Sipanska Luka in the late afternoon/evening.

Accommodation: 3*** guesthouse in Luka Sipanska; Meals: B; Sea Kayaking: 2-3 hours, easy; Sailing: 2-3 hours, easy
