We designed this Dubrovnik kayaking and cycling short break for those who love traveling and want to see a lot in a short period of time. Daily routes are rather short – 3 to 5 hours of easy activity- and not demanding, fit for all ages between 8 and late sixties (no previous sea kayaking experience necessary). This trip is perfect for couples and solo travelers looking to get away from the crowds and enjoy fun activities.

Elaphiti shorelines are rich in history and natural variety – cliffs, caves, pine and palm trees, hidden coves, reefs, sandy beaches… Sipan Island, where you will stay, belongs to the the Elaphiti Islands archipelago. These are some of Croatia’s most beautiful green islands – covered by forests with lots of sunshine and sandy beaches and free of traffic. Their location is ideal – we reach them in under an hour’s time from Dubrovnik and explore them while sea kayaking, cycling, swimming, snorkeling and on foot. In the evenings you will enjoy a full flavored Mediterranean cuisine, typical for these islands and the area. On your forth day you will visit mesmerizing Lopud Island and hike all the way up for breathtaking view of the archipelago. Our experienced local guides will avoid overcrowded destinations ensuring you get the most authentic experience.

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

After the arrival at Dubrovnik harbor you will  get transferred by ferry to Luka Sipanska. This village at the far end of Sipan Island with beautiful sunsets 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. Sipan is the largest of the Elaphiti Islands and its landscape, castles, chapels and monasteries are ideally explored by bikes or on foot. Luka Sipanska will be our base for the duration of the holiday. Enjoy the afternoon exploring, swimming and sunbathing.

Note: Arrivals are recommended by 3 pm. Ferry transfers for arrivals by 6 pm are included, but you may miss group dinner and orientation. Arrivals after 6 pm may be subject to surcharge for transfers or overnight on land.

Accommodation: 3*** guesthouse in Luka Sipanska; Meals: D.

Elaphiti Island Kayaking and SUP

 The Elaphiti Islands are one of the best Croatian archipelagos for sea kayaking. Each island is small and easy to kayak around, but has an interesting and indented coastline, offering numerous coves and beaches. We paddle out of Luka Sipanska this morning and head west towards Jakljan, Tajan and Olipa islands. All three are uninhabited and their beaches can only be accessed from a small boat or kayak, resulting in a number of secluded beaches and a rich, undisturbed underwater world. There will be plenty of time for SUP, swimming and snorkeling before returning to Luka Sipanska for yet another spectacular sunset.

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

Cycling Sipan

Sipan is the largest of the Elaphiti Islands. It was lucky enough to reach its peak of development at the time when the Republic of Dubrovnik was the richest. The result is the highest number of summer villas found among all three inhabited islands, as well as numerous churches, chapels and monasteries. Two villages, Luka Sipanska and Sudjuradj, are connected by a road with very little traffic, which is ideal for cycling. Visit a local hilltop farm with picturesque olive groves and the most beautiful view of the island.

Accommodation: 3*** guesthouse in Luka Sipanska; Meals: B, D; Cycling: 2 -3 hours, easy

Departure and optional day Lopud hike

After breakfast you have an option to continue towards beautiful Lopud. This island has many beautiful walking routes that take one from sea to the top of the island and back. 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 gives one of the best views on the entire archipelago. Transfer to Dubrovnik bus station or harbor. You can book your flight from 10 am onward. Earlier departures can be accommodated, but are subject to surcharge. If you decide to spend more time in Croatia, our guides will be happy to recommend other beautiful places to visit – especially those you won’t find in tourist guide books.
