Dubrovnik: Cavtat and Konavle Half-Day Private Tour

1. Dubrovnik: Cavtat and Konavle Half-Day Private Tour

Enjoy panoramic sea views, the historic streets of Cavtat, a restaurant by the lake in Konavle, and the delicious Croatian dish Peka on this half-day private tour. After being picked up from your accommodation in Dubrovnik, it’s just a short 40-minute drive to the charming town of Cavtat. Surrounded by gorgeous views and filled with inviting streets, Cavtat was the first settlement in the area, formed in the 6th-century BC. Take a guided walk through the small town, known for its many churches. Conquer the hill to see the Racic Mausoleum, then enjoy a coffee on the waterfront. After that, explore freely and enjoy the views over the marina. It’s then just a short car ride through the Konavle area, with your guide teaching you about its history on the way to the river Ljuta. Lunch is at a local restaurant by the river. After a welcoming brandy, it’s time for the famous local dish Peka, still prepared today as it was thousands of years ago. It pairs excellently with the locally-produced wine you’ll try. Once you’re finished with the meal, it’s a relaxing drive back to your accommodation in Dubrovnik.

From Dubrovnik: Horseback Riding Day Tour in Konavle Valley

2. From Dubrovnik: Horseback Riding Day Tour in Konavle Valley

Upon arriving at the Ranch, your guide (the wrangler) will take you through a brief orientation to get you ready for your riding experience. She will be in charge of matching you with the horse that will bring out the best horseback rider in you. Because our herd here at Bio Konavle is quite small, you will be riding in a small group. This will give you a unique opportunity to make a deeper connection with your horse, and maybe even find a new best friend. You will be riding a cold blooded Icelandic horse, around 140cm tall, and very popular among beginners for being easygoing and friendly. We let them spend most of their days relaxing in the meadows, treating them almost as family members. Therefore, we kindly ask you to show them the same kind of respect. We will start with an easy ride through the Konavle Valley, following narrow paths through fields of wildflowers, pine forests, scattered vineyards and farms. Enjoy the two and a half-hour ride through the breathtaking scenery, trot across the open range and feel the sweet-smelling sea breeze in your face. We will make a stop by the Ljuta River, where you can water your horse, splash around or even swim with them, depending on your previous experiences and skills. So, jump off and tie your horse to take a dip in the refreshing water or lie back and rest in the shade of a tree. There, we will have a snack and a glass of our wine, and if it is too early for wine for you, you can get a soft drink. After the short break by the river, we will get back on our horses and slowly return to the Bio Konavle Ranch, sit down and share our experiences. Don’t forget to give your email to the guide so she can send you the photos.
