We designed this Dubrovnik multi activity holiday for those who love traveling, being active outdoors and exploring seaside, nature and heritage. Daily routes are rather short – 3 to 5 hours of easy activity. They are not demanding, fit for all ages between 8 and late sixties (no previous sea kayaking experience is necessary). This trip is perfect for families with children but also couples and solo travelers looking to get away from crowds. Designated family and adult departures ensure that you will be surrounded by like-minded travelers.
If Dubrovnik is a pearl of Adriatic, the Elaphiti Archipelago are emeralds thrown into the sapphire blue of the Adriatic. The string of 13 islands stretches north from Dubrovnik and is a genuine oasis of peace. Only three islands have people living on them year round and only around 600 people lives on all three of them combined. They are ideally located – we reach them in under an hour’s time from Dubrovnik and explore them while sea kayaking, cycling, sailing, swimming, snorkeling and hiking. Our experienced local guides and skippers will avoid overcrowded destinations ensuring you get the most authentic experience.
Last but not least, let’s not forget another important aspect of Croatian culture: its cuisine. You will discover fresh and full flavored Mediterranean cuisine and try exquisite Croatian wines.
