Experience Croatia’s Adriatic Sea and Elafiti Islands by ferry, kayak and bicycle on a small-group, 8-hour guided tour. Begin with a relaxing ferry ride to Lopud Island. From Lopud kayak for 1 hour to nearby Šipan Island; swap kayaks for bikes; bike 6 km to lunch (not included) at a wonderful seaside restaurant with views of the outer Elafiti Islands and Peljesac Peninsula. It will be a perfect day filled with sunshine, dramatic scenery, and a perfect blend of activity and relaxation. Bike, kayak, and ferry back to Dubrovnik at the end of the day.
Board the 10am ferry in Dubrovnik for the 50-minute ride to Lopud Island. Paddle in your kayak from Lopud to Šipan Island, the most remote of the three inhabited Elaﬁti Islands.
After paddling for an hour, arrive at a small fishing village on Šipan, where you, your group and professional guide will abandon kayaks for bicycles. Šipan has a rich and colorful history dating back to Ragusa’s 15th century Renaissance. A single 6 km long tarmac road bisects the island, connecting its two small villages.
Cycle past vineyards, aristocratic villas, olive groves, old stone churches, and lush landscape to Luka Šipanska (20-25 minute cycle), a simple fishing village nestled in a deep bay.
Lunch in Luka affords beautiful views of the outer uninhabited Elafiti Islands backed by the Pelješac Peninsula beyond. Pedal to the island’s small sandy beach on a peninsula for a swim in Luka Šipanska’s inland bay or venture into the open sea. After swimming, hiking, and lunch in Luka, cycle 20 minutes back to the kayaks for the 1-hour paddle back to Lopud and the ferry ride back to Dubrovnik.
Lunch, at a small restaurant in Luka Šipanska's serving the day's freshest catch, is one of the many highlights of the 8-hour tour. Lunch is not included in the tour's price.
