This hiking holiday will show you stunning sceneries and landscapes of the Dubrovnik Archipelago. It is perfect for those who like to enjoy the great outdoors on foot, no matter the age. The daily walking routes will take you to Kolocep and Lopud islands. They are not too long or too strenuous, and at almost every point you will be able to enjoy a refreshing swim break. We will stay in 3* family run guesthouses in a secluded village of Sipan Island.

Lopud, Kolocep and Sipan belong to the Elaphiti Islands archipelago – 13 green islands covered by pine forests, free of traffic, with lots of sunshine and sandy beaches, and under an hour from Dubrovnik. They are not just places of incredible natural beauty, but also open air museums of history, art, architecture and folklore. Our experienced local guides will avoid overcrowded destinations ensuring you get the most authentic experience.

You can easily combine this Dubrovnik hiking break with other Huck Finn 4-day trips in all parts of Croatia.

Arrival to Sipan

Our meeting point is Gruz harbor where you will take a ferry to Sipan island, to a charming and picturesque Sipanska Luka village on the secluded side of the island. Enjoy your day exploring this natural paradise, swim in its clear sea or enjoy cozy waterfront restaurants where one can savor Croatian and Dalmatian specialties. Traditional guesthouse in Sipanska Luka village will be our base for this holiday. Enjoy a drink in the evening and get to know other group members.
Accommodation: Sipan island 3*** guesthouse.

Kolocep Island Hiking

In the morning right after our breakfast we take the local ferry in the morning and visit Kolocep Island, extremely interesting for its dramatic scenery with rocky beaches, high cliffs and colorful reefs. Walk through Gornje Celo and Donje Celo, well preserved romantic Mediterranean villages, and along high cliffs. Many remnants of old architecture have been preserved, and are dispersed throughout the island (an old pre-Romantic chapel, ruins of the basilica, summer villas, Napoelon’s fort and more). A pleasant noon siesta will take place in a quiet and relaxing atmosphere of Gornje Celo turquoise bay, near one of the best fish restaurants in the area.
Accommodation: Sipan island 3*** guesthouse; Meals: B,L; Walking: 3.5 hours easy/moderate; Ferry: 35 min each way.

Lopud Island Walk

On our day three we start our day by discovering Lopud island. Lopud is an island with lots of sunshine, sandy beaches and palm trees, free of traffic. The only town on the island has no more than a couple of hundred permanent residents, old houses of beautiful architecture and abundance of flowers everywhere, which contribute to an easy going lifestyle. The sandy beach of Sunj Bay on Lopud’s southern side is the most popular beach of the Dubrovnik area. However this island’s true treasures are its tiny churches and a 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. Today it offers stunning views of the Elaphiti Archipelago and Mljet Island.
Accommodation: Sipan island 3*** guesthouse; Meals: B, D; Walking: 4 hours; Ferry: 20 min each way.
