Dubrovnik - Šipan - Mljet Island & National Park – Lastovo - Korčula - Pelješac peninsula - Dubrovnik
Day 1: Sailing Dubrovnik to Šipan island
We head out from Dubrovnik and head towards Elaphiti archipelago to visit islands and the lighthouse of St. Andrew before reaching Šipan island. The island, which is only 16 square kilometers in size, is home to old summer estates and 34 churches that bear witness to a rich history that peaked during the era of the Dubrovnik Republic. Interestingly, Šipan was inscribed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the island with the greatest number of olive trees in comparison to its size. The olive tree is a symbol of the Mediterranean. It has left its mark on civilization and has been respected since ancient and biblical times. Here we spend the night and prepare for longer sailing tomorrow. At Šipan island you can choose between bicycles and sea kayaks for our guided tour.
Day 2: Mljet National park
The next day we head to Mljet Island and its national park. Mljet is the most forested island in the Adriatic, and the National Park contains two salt lakes, with a Benedictine monastery on the Isle of St. Mary. We will go to the national park, hike, walk, cycle or canoe, take a boat tour or visit the monastery of St. Mary and swim in the crystal clear turquoise waters of the lakes before returning to the village for dinner.
Day 3: Sailing to Lastovo and lighthouse mysteries
After departing from Mljet we head towards Lastovo, an offshore island with a long history and clear sky. On the way, we will visit one of the monumental south Adriatic lighthouses (Glavat).
You'll have a chance to swim or SUP in hidden and unspoiled places. Towards the end of the day, we're sailing on to Lastovo where we are spending the night in one of many coves of the southern Lastovo coast. The Lastovo tour also includes a climbing to Struga. We guarantee that this lighthouse from 19th-century with its architecture and the view it provides is something you won't be forgetting soon.
Day 4: Nature park Lastovo
For kayakers and divers, Lastovo is a hidden gem of the Adriatic. Discover its blue caves, impressive cliffs and reefs and secluded islands or the archipelago which is also a protected
natural park. You will discover the inner parts of the island and cycle through many cultural and historical landmarks Lastovo has to offer. We will reach the town of Lastovo on the other side of the island and enjoy the calm atmosphere there. The city was built inland thus protecting the
residents from pirates and conquerors. Military history buffs will find many remains of old and new fortifications. We end our day with dinner in a calm seaside restaurant for some local cuisine and wine. At night, well after the sunset, for your enjoyment, we will visit one of Lastovo's peeks
where lies one of the best European stargazing locations.
Day 5: Lastovo -Korčula sailing
After 2 days on Lastovo, we turn back to sailing as we cross the wide channel to Korčula island and enjoy some casual paddleboarding along the way. The island Korčula with a rich culture and past where every stone has history imprinted on it has been famous since the 6th century B.C.
when it was known as an ancient Greek colony under the name of Korkyra Melaina (in translation 'Black Korčula', for its dark green pine forests). Korčula is also known as the hometown of the Polo-Depolo family, including the 13th-century explorer and traveler Marco Polo, author of the
book 'Il milione' with which he was the first European to present facts about China and other Asian countries. Discover the town and Marco Polo museum, ancient walls and architecture and a coffee in a classic destination of nautic visitors from all over the world.
Day 6: Korčula - Pelješac peninsula
We're starting the day with sailing to Pelješac peninsula, a place where untouched nature coincides with cultivated slopes covered with vineyards resulting in one of the best wine regions in the world. This is where your sailing ends and you will continue the tour with our comfortable
and air-conditioned shuttle. This way we can guide you through several wineries for wine tasting. After the wine tasting, we will be visiting Ston, a medieval little town whose history reaches back as far as the 14th century. It is a small town with the longest stone wall in Europe (5,5km), with narrow quiet streets, noble ancient houses and with traces of ancient cultures. Its former value as a „salt city“ gets confirmed even today in the plants of the oldest active salt-works in the world.
These saltworks have remained faithful to the tradition and to the natural way of salt production which has not changed since remote ages. The gourmets among you will find out why the Pelješac is paradise for wine and clamp enthusiasts. Late afternoon you will be traveling back to Dubrovnik with our shuttle.
