1. Konavle Valley: Private Half-Day Tour with Wine Tasting
Discover the Croatian countryside outside Dubrovnik during a 4- to 6-hour guided trip to the Konavle Valley. Travel from Dubrovnik (30 kilometers) or Cavtat (10 kilometers) with a local guide, sample locally-produced wine from family-run wineries, and enjoy a traditional lunch. Visit Konavle's River Ljuta, see the lush greenery and natural beauty of the small national park and explore Sokol Tower. Located at the southern-most tip of Croatia, near the border of Montenegro, Konavle Valley is flanked by the Adriatic Sea and the foothills of Sniježnica Mountain. The valley boasts an ample number of vineyards, as the climactic and geological conditions are ripe for wine-making. Listen to your guide share the history of the area, as you travel from charming village to village, passing by olive orchards and citrus groves as your vehicle winds its way through the rural landscape. Visit a family winery and meet the local wine-makers. Learn all about the main characteristics of southern Dalmatian wine and how to produce it. Sample the best reds and whites on offer and don’t skip on the sweet dessert wines. At a vineyard, indulge in a typical lunch and feast on cheese, bacon, and bread.
