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
Day 2 - Šipan kayaking and Mljet sailing
The next day we kayak the bays of Šipan island in the morning before heading towards Mljet island. Kayaking is a great way to explore the bays and beaches in the area, and especially the passage that was the ground on the most famous naval battle in the ancient world: the battle between Julius Caesar and Mark Antony. 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 stop for a swim and paddleboard along the bay before reaching Polače village for dinner.
Day 3 - Mljet cycling
After breakfast grab your bike and get ready for cycling. We will go to the national park and make a trip around two beautiful turquoise lakes, surrounded by lush green forest. If you like, you can take a short boat ride to the island and monastery of St.Mary, or stop for lunch in a charming little fishing village on the canal that connects the lakes with the sea. Upon returning to the boat, we head for Prožura bay for a dinner and another stary night.
Day 4 - Back towards Dubrovnik
For the last day, we sail through the Elaphiti archipelago and enjoy the secluded bay, sandy beaches and beautiful sceneries on the way back to Dubrovnik port. We will stop on Lopud island for a hike to the hilltop for an amazing view of the archipelago. Enjoy the rest of your sail with stand-up paddling, or sightseeing villages and towns of the archipelago. We reach the port in the afternoon and spend a final night with your guide and skipper in a cozy atmosphere and with stories of the trip to share
Day 5 - Departure
