Arrival at destination – Lopud Island

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. 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.

Witness or join locals gathering each evening for a friendly game, highlighting the warmth that defines Lopud.

Paddle, swim and hike Lopud island

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 Lopud; SUP: 2 hours, moderate

Explore and hike 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.
