Sipan Island SUP

Today we will go to Sudurad, named after St. George, the patron saint. From there, we will take our stand-up paddleboards (SUPs) and start paddling from a tranquil beach offering stunning views of Lopud Island. If weather permits, we’ll even visit Sipan’s green cave. To reach Sudurad, we’ll either bike or take organized transportation. After our SUP adventure, those interested can enjoy lunch in Sudurad, go biking, or hike to the top St. Trinity, which offers a view of the whole inside of the island.

Accommodation: 3*** guesthouse in Sipan; Meals: B; SUP: 2 hours, moderate


Sipan Island Cycling

Sudjurad and Luka Sipanska, only two remaining villages on the island, are connected by a quiet road ideal for cycling. You will go through olive groves and old villas from the Dubrovnik Republic. Fun fact: Sipan is in the Guinness Book of World Records for having the most olive trees for its size. The island is quiet and has low traffic, so you will be able to peacefully cycle through its roads, exploring untouched nature, hidden churches and stop at the locals offering oil, wine and cake tasting.

Accommodation: 3*** guesthouse in Luka Sipanska. Meals: B. Cycling: 2 hours, easy/moderate


Visit Dubrovnik or Hike Kolocep

Visit Dubrovnik, the most beautiful of all Mediterranean towns, for sightseeing, shopping in ancient streets, and walking along city walls. Ice cream or coffee taste best in open air bistros along Stradun, Old Town’s main street and promenade. Take an optional boat ride to Lokrum, the “cursed island” near Dubrovnik with its Benedictine monastery, botanical garden, small lake popularly known as the “Dead Sea” and Fort Royal Castle.

For those planning to stay in Dubrovnik before or after the tour, we suggest visiting Kolocep island. Interesting for its dramatic scenery with rocky beaches, high cliffs, turquoise bays and colorful reefs, Kolocep offers a great getaway. There are no cars on this tiny island so the walk through the villages will be very enjoyable. On your walk across the island you will encounter many architectural remnants, witnesses of the turbulent history of the area: an old pre-Romantic chapel, ruins of a basilica, summer homes of Dubrovnik nobility, Napoelon’s fort, and more.

Accommodation: 3*** guesthouse in Luka Sipanska; Meals: B; Swimming, Walking and sightseeing, easy; Ferry: 1.15 hours to Dubrovnik/ 40 minutes to Kolocep each way


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.

Accommodation: 3*** guesthouse in Luka Sipanska; Meals: B; Walking: 2-3 h, easy; Ferry: 15 min each way


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
