Explore the beautiful islands off the coast of Croatia by sailboat – a replica of a historical galleon – and experience breathtaking views of the Dubrovnik region. Discover three of the most beautiful of the islands, Koločep, Lopud and Šipan, and learn about the history of each place, as your boat makes its way from Dubrovnik through the azure blue Adriatic Sea. The Elafiti Islands, reportedly an ancient Greek word for ‘deer,’ was an old hunting grounds for the Greeks.
Today they are a bucolic archipelago, studding with old sleepy villages and a verdant countryside. Dock the boat at each island and explore the places on your own. Walk through citrus and olive groves, diminutive villages with centuries-old manor houses and churches right on the sea.
Abut midway through the adventure, sit down on the island of Šipan to a typical Croatian lunch. Indulge in grilled seafood and sip some locally made wine while a band performs traditional Dalmatian folk music for you.
Then head back to Dubrovnik and get dropped off at your hotel.
