Full description
Go island hopping in Croatia's Elaphite islands in the sunny Adriatic Sea. In this full-day tour rom Dubrovnik, experience the natural wonder of these untouched islands and live true island life, Dalmatian style!

This sun-drenched archipelago located north-west of Dubrovnik is largely uninhabited, and consists of eight islets, three of which await you on this full day excursion. Meet Koločep, Šipan and Lopud, bathe in their crystal-clear seas, stroll in the shade of their Mediterranean flora, explore their quaint hamlets, and indulge in the delicious local cuisine.

Begin on charming Koločep isle, traversing the meandering path through evergreen pine, Carob trees, citrus gardens, and olive groves that joins its only two settlements. Wander in peace through scattered remnants of ancient buildings with not a car in sight – in fact, there are no cars on Koločep!

Next you'll hop over to Šipan, the largest of the Elaphites. Rich in history, the island's settlement dates back to the Roman Empire, and is dotted with venerable stone villas as well as churches of a later age. The island's wealth of natural beauty and central agricultural area bares olives, figs, grapes, and citrus fruits.

Lastly, visit the island of Lopud, said to be the most beautiful of the Elephites. Blessed with sunny beaches, it is the perfect place to unwind after a day of island hopping.

We had a lovely day . The lunch was delicious and I like that you get to choose between meat , fish and vegetarian manu so there’s something for everyone . You get plenty free time on each island so it’s a very relaxing day and no rushing. It’s definitely a must when you’re in Dubrovnik .

A driver picked us up and brought us back to our hotel on time with a modern and clean bus. We sailed from the port at 10:00 with a beautiful 2-storey boat (perhaps the most beautiful that could be chosen, given the ones used in the other trips) and we returned after exactly 8h as scheduled. We had 1.5h of free time on the first island where we had a nice refreshing swim in the crystal clear waters of the nearby beach. Afterwards we had lunch on board the boat, where we had the opportunity to choose from a chicken, fish or vegetarian menu, all accompanied with unlimited water and wine (wine only for lunch). During the day there were also unlimited sub-brands of coca cola and fanta. On the second island we spent only 45min after lunch and honestly we did not really know what to do since there was not much to visit and the time was insufficient for a bath, while in the third 3h. Highly recommended experience

Nice relaxing day!

Chicken picnic was lovely! Would be nice if crew told you a bit about what to see on each island and points of interest you passed on way. Pick up from hotel was on time and taxi waiting to take us back to hotel at end of day was waiting for us.
