TOUR ITINERARY

Day 1, Sunday: Dubrovnik

Upon arrival to Dubrovnik Airport you will be transferred to you hotel in Dubrovnik. Day at leisure until welcome meeting at 7:00pm. Overnight in Dubrovnik.

Day 2, Monday: Dubrovnik – Mount Srđ – Cavtat – Dubrovnik

Breakfast at the hotel. Towering above Dubrovnik the 412 metre peak of Mount Srđ offers stunning panoramic views of the walled city with the whole coast as far as the Pelješac peninsula to the northwest. The mountain seems a world apart from the lush subtropical coastal strip, with bare stone and scrub stretching as far as the eye can see. On the top of the hill is the Fort Imperial with its stout, defiant walls standing here since Napoleon’s soldiers built it in 1812. After our Srđ adventure we will visit Cavtat. This small town is situated in the Konavle Region, south of Dubrovnik. The main Cavtat walk is about 8 km long and follows the shoreline. It will take you along the beaches of the rugged Sustjepan Peninsula, passing by the famous Cavtat Promenade and Rat Peninsula. You will also visit the Racic Mausoleum offering beautiful uninterrupted views of the sea. This work by the most famous Croatian sculptor Ivan Mestrovic, rising high above town, is a Cavtat’s landmark. You may also visit the Franciscan Church and Monastery of our Lady of the Snow and the Bukovac Art Gallery. Enjoy a free evening and dinner on your own in Dubrovnik. Overnight in Dubrovnik. (B)
Walking approx 4 hours

Day 3, Tuesday: Dubrovnik – Koločep Island – Dubrovnik

After breakfast we will take the local ferry and visit the Koločep Island, interesting for its dramatic scenery with rocky beaches, high cliffs and colorful reefs. Walk through Gornje Čelo and Donje Čelo, well preserved romantic Mediterranean villages. Many remnants of old architecture are dispersed throughout the island (an old pre-Romantic chapel, ruins of the basilica, summer homes, Napoelon’s fort and more). A pleasant noon siesta will take place in a quiet and relaxing atmosphere of Gornje Čelo turquoise bay, near one of the best fish restaurants in the area. Overnight in Dubrovnik. (B)
Walking approx 3.5 hours

Day 4, Wednesday: Dubrovnik

Breakfast at the hotel. Join the walking tour of the Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, departing at 10:15am from the Pile Gate (note – you will need to make your own way to the meeting place by bus or on foot). Our expert guide will lead you through the narrow streets introducing the history and culture of this extremely well preserved medieval city. Afternoon at leisure to further explore the Pearl of the Adriatic. Overnight in Dubrovnik. (B)

Day 5, Thursday: Dubrovnik – Lopud – Dubrovnik

This morning after breakfast we will visit Lopud, traffic free island with lots of sunshine, sandy beaches and palm trees. The only town on the island has no more than 200 permanent residents, living in old reneissance villas with abundance of flowers everywhere, contributing to an easygoing lifestyle. The island produces fruits like lemons, oranges and even kiwifruit. The sandy beach of Sunj Bay on Lopud’s southern side is the most popular beach in the Dubrovnik area. However this island’s true treasure are its tiny churches and a fort, strategically located at one of its highest points. In the past it served as an observation point for the island’s safety and today it offers stunning views of the Elaphiti archipelago and Mljet Island. Overnight in Dubrovnik. (B)
Walking approx 4 hours

Day 6, Friday: Dubrovnik – Šipan – Dubrovnik

Today after breakfast we will visit the largest of the Elaphiti Islands – Šipan. Colorful villages of Sudjuradj and Luka Šipanska with the fields between them have preserved the real country lifestyle. Chapels, monasteries, palaces and summer houses of ancient Dubrovnik aristocracy tell tales about the island’s turbulent history. We will explore them by walking and there will be plenty of time to relax on the beaches or in the cafes. Overnight in Dubrovnik. (B)
Walking approx 4 hours

Day 7, Saturday: Dubrovnik – Mljet – Dubrovnik

Today, after breakfast, we will take a boat to Mljet Island National Park. The northern part of the island is covered with a dense, green forest. The Park has two beautiful salt water lakes, one with a 14th century monastery on a tiny island. We will explore the Park on foot, enjoy a swim in the warm waters of the lakes and take the short boat ride to St Mary’s Island and the monastery. Overnight in Dubrovnik. (B)
Walking approx 3-4 hours
