We highly recommend this weeklong sea kayaking adventure because of its paddling diversity. Over the years, we’ve noticed that this kayaking itinerary provides ample opportunity to work on your paddling skills in a relaxed and social atmosphere.

 

Kayaking Classic Adventure tour is based around the island of Lopud, which has several beautiful sandy beachesno cars and great places to eat and sleep. Our idea is to have daily kayaking trips from a home base — you’ll stay in the same place nightly so no need to fret over moving constantly. These kayaking trips are easily enjoyed by all beginner kayakers and cover from eight to fifteen kilometers per day (or two to four hours total in the kayaks) … which means there is plenty of time put aside every day for lunch, dinner, snorkeling, hiking, and exploring.

 

We keep to small groups (up to 8 people per group) all of our tours are very flexible, we can also adjust the daily schedule to be more active and more interesting to experienced kayakers as well. If you want to enjoy our beautiful Dalmatian coast and are eager to explore it while kayaking this is the perfect activity tour for you. The adventures and sites on this tour will bind travel companions and new friends for a lifetime, making it a perfect holiday in Croatia. 

 

 

WHAT OTHERS SAY ABOUT THIS TOUR

 

Outdoor Croatia Sea Kayaking on TripAdvisor

“We did the ‘Classic Kayaking Tour’ and enjoyed a fantastic week on the beautiful islands featured in the trip. Our instructor, Marco, was wonderful: really friendly, incredibly professional and understanding (my husband and I had very different abilities when it comes to outdoor activities such as those featured on the trip – he is very sporty and most of my kayaking knowledge was non-existent!).The holiday was a great balance between activities and time to relax – we loved the variety and got to see and experience so much local culture due to the professionalism and local knowledge of the team. The holiday was easy to book and the team got back to us immediately whenever we contacted them. (It was also interesting to see the difference between ‘Outdoor Croatia’ and their competitors when we arrived – we had certainly booked with the right people!)”

DETAILED ITINERARY

 

DAY 1

After we pick you up at the Airport, we’ll take you to Dubrovnik Old Town to relax before boarding the local ferry headed to the island of Lopud at 4pm. On Lopud, we’ll escort you to your accommodations, which you’ll call home for the next week. At the orientation dinner that night, the group will go over trip logistics, discuss any necessary arrangements, talk about Croatia, and get to know one another.

 

DAY 2

After breakfast, we’ll begin our adventure and the first day of kayaking. There will be a thorough explanation of safety techniques, paddle strokes, and kayak management … all tools you’ll perfect as the week progresses. We will then get in our kayaks and paddle from the beach to another wonderful sandy beach — Šunj — on the other side of the island. During this introductory paddle, we will work on paddling and get comfortable in our boats. After we port, we’ll have time to swim, snorkel, and jump from rocks, which are all very safe with plenty of deep water. Next, we’ll have lunch at a local spot and then walk back to the rooms, stopping along the way to take in a couple of interesting sights: the ruins of the Church of Our Lady and the Šunja Kaštio Fort. The group will have free time until dinner.

• Main Activity: Sea kayaking (total paddling distance – 7 km)

 

DAY 3

After a hearty breakfast we’ll take a short hike back to our kayaks on Šunj Beach and then paddle across the channel to the island of Koločep. Here we will take out at the magnificent, underwater Blue Cave and have a picnic lunch sitting on amazing limestone cliffs  — and relax as the sea slaps the shore beneath us. We’ll take time to enjoy the natural wonders, swim, and dive before kayaking to the village of Donje Celo. Back in the kayaks, satisfied and with the sun sparkling on the Adriatic, we’ll paddle back to our beach — Šunj — and walk back t o town and get ready for dinner.

• Main Activity: Sea Kayaking (total paddling distance – 18 km)

 

DAY 4

Following breakfast, we’ll return to our kayaks and get ready for another great day of paddling. Today we kayak to the beautiful village of Trsteno, which hugs the mainland coast. After securing the boats, we’ll hike up to a 15th century noble family’s villa to visit the arboretum, which is managed by the parks service. The gardens have more than 450 species of plants and is a great place to reflect on the region’s history when the Republic of Dubrovnik once reigned supreme along this area of the coast. After lunch we kayak back to Lopud where the group will have free time for souvenir hunting, ice cream, and a pre-dinner beverage.

• Main Activity: Sea Kayakig (total paddling distance – 13 km)

 

DAY 5

Today we will kayak to Šipan: the largest island in the Elaphiti Archipelago. We first paddle to the southwest side of the island to visit a natural, 25-meter-high, rock archway framing the island from one direction and the open Adriatic Sea to the other. This is a great photo-op and we’ll take some time to get shots of the group before continuing on in a southwesterly direction to the Green Cave. Sporting masks and snorkels, we’ll swim underwater and into the cave’s entrance, which opens into a large space big enough to stand in. From inside we’ll have a perfect vantage point to see the glorious sunlight which reflects against the cave’s sandy bottom and illuminates the grotto in a surreal green glow. After a break for swimming and cliff jumping into safe, deep waters, we’ll continue to the village of Suđurađ where we will have lunch in a local restaurant. Relaxation complete, we kayak back to Lopud and enjoy the sunset before dinner.

• Main Activity: Sea Kayaking (total paddling distance – 12km)

 

DAY 6

After breakfast, we paddle from Lopud and back to the island of Šipan and to the harbor village of Suđurađ. From here, though, the plan is completely different than the day before. We will take out on the beach and then get ready to bicycle across the island. After a safety talk and description of the route, we mount up and cycle the length of the island to one of the most beautiful towns in the region: Šipanska Luka. Along the way, we will pass vineyards, olive groves, medieval villages, and ancient churches. In the village, the group will feast on sublime meat and fish dishes in one of the best little restaurant gems in the Elaphiti Archipelago. We will then relax on the local beach to digest our winnings and then follow our path back to the kayaks before paddling back to Lopud.

• Main Activity: Sea Kayaking (total paddling distance – 10km; total biking distance  - 10km)

 

 

DAY 7

Designed as a free day, guests are welcome to sunbathe, tour the island on their own, take an excursion — via ferry — back to Dubrovnik or go on one of our optional tours (Adrenaline Cetina river rafting,  Peljesac historical wine tour, Konavle biking & wine tour adventure ), with a special price for Kayaking Classic Adventurers. Members of the group will reconvene in Lopud (by ferry if they’ve visited Dubrovnik) and get ready for a memorable final dinner to toast and regale their accomplishments over the magical week.

• Free Day or Optional Activity: Canoeing on Cetina river or Pedal Konavle biking tour

 

DAY 8

After breakfast, the group will take the ferry from Lopud back to Dubrovnik, where guides will either transfer guests to the airport or to a pre-booked hotel if they are staying on for a few days, or weeks, or months.

Breather Tour is a shorter version of our Classic Kayaking Adventure, and is based around the island of Lopud, which has several beautiful sandy beaches, no cars and great places to eat and sleep. Our idea is to have daily kayaking trips from a home base — you’ll stay in the same place nightly so no need to fret over moving constantly.

If you only have a couple of days to enjoy our beautiful Dalmatian coast and are eager to explore while kayaking this is the perfect activity tour for you.

 

 

WHAT OTHERS SAY ABOUT THIS TOUR

 


Outdoor Croatia Sea Kayaking on TripAdvisor

“We did the Breather short tour as we didn’t have time for the full week tour and it certainly didn’t disappoint. I’ve done a few kayaking trips in Croatia before but a few aspects really stuck out when I made the decision to go with this company, first was it was cheaper than the competition, the second is the equipment is top quality, carbon fibre paddles, really nice kayaks and spray skirts. I also felt like the guide put in that much more effort because he was actually one of the company managers! His real focus was on makinf sure we had the best trip possible and not worrying about getting home and finishing work. this meant we did some additional kayaking going out to the lighthouse off Lopud. Only downside is he wasn’t really able to keep up with the beers!”

“As part of a family of 6, we all had a fabulous time with Outdoor Croatia on our three day island tour. Excellent and professional service from day 1. As we were a private party and first time kayakers Marko and the team were happy to adapt the day plans to our preferences and very much made it our experience. Safety while on the sea was a priority during ‘training’ which was also reassuring. Accommodation provided was very comfortable and local restaurants in Lopud were well chosen and food was excellent quality. Overall a very good experience and great holiday!”
