Please advise us of your flight schedule, and we will meet you at Dubrovnik Airport. You need to arrive by 5.00 pm at the latest. Upon arrival, we’ll be transferred to Ston, a tiny town at the head of the Pelješac Peninsula, just an hour’s drive from Dubrovnik. Check in. Welcome dinner.

After breakfast, we’ll check out and embark on our first tour around the fortified town of Ston. We’ll clamber up the walls which extend from one side of the Pelješac Peninsula all the way to the other. You’ll be bombarded by stunning views, and you’ll also exercise your leg muscles. There will be time to recover during the short transfer to Prapratno Bay from where we’ll take a ferry to Mljet Island. Another short transfer takes us to the village of Babino Polje, in the middle of the island. From here, we’ll take a short hike to see the Odysseus Cave. Transfer to Polače, a seaside hamlet with Roman ruins, where we’ll enjoy a homely, late lunch. In the afternoon, we’ll hike to the Great Lake and visit St. Mary’s Islet. The hike will end in Pomena, a seaside hamlet at the western tip of the island. After checking into our private accomodation for the night, we’ll tuck into a fisherman’s dinner.

Breakfast. After check out, we begin our hike to Veliki Gradac Hill and the Montokuc viewpoint. The view from Montokuc takes in the whole National Park. Lunch will be in a restaurant located on the Soline Straits. Suitably replenished, we’ll hike along the Lakes to Pomena from where, in the late afternoon, we catch the catamaran to Korčula Town. Time to check into our boutique hotel and enjoy a relaxing dinner.

After breakfast, we take a short transfer to Žrnovo village from where we’ll start today’s circular hike to the jagged southeastern shore of Korčula Island. We’ll reach some of the most remote beaches on the island, before having lunch in a tavern that appears out of nowhere. In the afternoon, it’s a hike uphill amongst dense vegetation, and then transfer to an organic farm for honey tasting. Return to the hotel where you’ll have some free time. Then it’s a short transfer to a rustic tavern outside the town for our evening meal.

Breakfast today is followed by a boat transfer across the channel from Korčula Town to Kučište, a small village on the Pelješac Peninsula. Here we’ll take a hike to the Franciscan Monastery of Our Lady of the Angels. Most of the time, the walk is at an altitude of 150 metres with stunning panoramic views before it descends into Orebić, a town at the foot of Mount St. Elias. From Orebić, we’ll continue by boat to visit Korčula’s Archipelago. We’ll lunch in a restaurant on a small islet. Return to Korčula by boat for some traditional sweet pastries tasting. Having satisfied our sweet craving, we’ll transfer back to the hotel for some free time. In the early evening, we’ll take a guided walking tour through the medieval streets of the Old Town which are laid out in a fishbone pattern. Dinner in the Old Town.

Breakfast today prepares us for a 30-minute transfer to Blato, an intriguing inland settlement where the streets have numbers instead of names. From here it’s a hike up to Kom Peak, the second highest peak on Korčula Island. From the top, you’ll get a 360° view of all the nearby islands. After a break, we’ll descend through the pine forest to Blato for lunch in a local tavern. After lunch we’ll visit the Barilo ethnographic museum where we’ll also do some tasting of local brandies. A short transfer to Smokvica village for Pošip wine tasting. Joyful, we’ll return to Korčula Town where the remainder of the day is at your own leisure.

We’ll check out after breakfast then transfer to Dubrovnik. Here we’ll take a normal walking tour with a local guide, although nothing can be described as normal in Dubrovnik. We’ll have lunch in a restaurant in the Old Town, followed by a tour of the Dubrovnik Walls. Later in the afternoon, our hike will take us to the top of Mount Srđ which towers above Dubrovnik as a natural rampart. From the top, the stunning view stretches as far as the eye can see. To descend, we’ll make a loop, and you’ll see the Old Town from several different angles. Then it’s a short walk to the hotel for our final night’s check in. The evening in Dubrovnik is at your own leisure.

After breakfast, sadly, it’s time to check out and say our farewells. You will be transferred to Dubrovnik Airport where we will wish you a pleasant flight, and hope to see you again in the not-too-distant future. Cheerio!

Picture yourself standing in the middle of the main street in Dubrovnik Old Town. It’s one of the most picturesque street on the planet, commonly known as Stradun.

Coastal Hikes in Croatia

If you are a keen hiker in search of cultural discovery, hop on for this island hopping experience!

You’ll hike on the forested islands that bask lazily in sunshine: Mljet Island, the western third of which is protected as a national park, and Korčula Island which the ancient Greeks named ‘black’ because of its dense and dark forests. The glittering green of the pine forest, the dazzlingly white of wave-sculpted cliffs and the shimmering blue of the Adriatic are the colours these islands have in abundance.
While Mljet Island is an extremely quiet island, Korčula Island seems to be bursting with people and life by comparison. However much each is a world apart, with its own character and charisma, with this hiking trip you’ll draw a parallel between them, trying to figure out the reasons behind their distinct identities.
Each day, you’ll take part in a guided hike on quiet trails, with the Adriatic Sea as a constant background. All hikes are graded ‘moderate’, so you should have some hiking experience and know what it is like to hike for up to six hours. You’ll hike a total of seventy kilometres, which are split over six days of hiking, with some days being a mere six kilometres and others being approximately fourteen kilometres. You’ll hike light, carrying only a daypack with what you need for the day. Lunches are organised in family-owned taverns, in the middle of amazing landscapes, or in charming restaurants with a story to tell. The great emphasis is placed on locally grown food, culinary specialities reflecting local history, and seafood dishes. Please advise us of any food allergies or dietary restrictions.

Coastal Hikes in Croatia

Hiking topped off with strolling in medieval walled towns

This hiking holiday will give you the opportunity to plunge into an oasis of peace and quiet, lush vegetation and crystal clear blue seas. At the same time, you’ll discover that this oasis, which is the southernmost region of Croatia, also offers the features of a fantasy world. You probably won’t stumble across castles and imaginary creatures, but honestly, you might meet our elves which usually look like butterflies. Our forests are enchanted, but only because you’ll be enchanted by hiking here. And when the silence becomes the sound of a turquoise sea lapping the shore, your doubts will evaporate and you’ll know that your holiday is about to turn magical!
What’s absolutely tangible in this fantasy world is that you are going to visit medieval walled towns: Ston, Korčula and Dubrovnik. Your strolls along these surprisingly preserved architectural wonders will be closely modelled on a historical reality. The view of their streets, tightly packed with Gothic and Renaissance palaces, and the view of their roofs stretching to the horizon, that kind of view could never get old. It is a one of a kind. And it is always a ‘mamma mia’ view.
It’s little wonder that the city of Dubrovnik served as the filming location for many famous scenes of a fantasy drama television series known as Game of Thrones.

Six reasons why you should choose this trip

1. There is literally nowhere else on earth like the islands in the Adriatic. Their scenic footpaths, hidden beaches, timeless villages and traditions, along with a laid-back vibe and fabulous medieval towns, will sweep you off your feet. If hiking hasn’t already done it.
2. You can take a dip in the most beautiful sea in the world. And after it, you will never again want to swim anywhere else.
3. You’ll explore one of Croatia’s eight national parks. For the other seven, please come back some other time!
4. The food – you cannot rate it highly enough. As the saying goes, the way to love is through the stomach. And with our wines, it will go swimmingly.
5. Your local guides are passionate about what they do. They are knowledgeable, engaging, attentive, and funny. You can ask them everything. But not everything requires a response.
6. Last but not least, you’ll get to chase the sunrises and sunsets. Here, it’s like a wedding in which the sun and the sea get married.
