Expand All
Day 1 : Arrival




Meals Included:


You will be welcomed from Dubrovnik airport, and transferred to the village of Mali Ston on the Pelješac peninsula, which will be your base for the week. Ston is a small Croatian medieval town famous for 3 things: the longest fortified wall in Europe, the oldest salt works on the Mediterranean and its delicious oysters and mussels. If you arrive in time, there is the option to walk the amazing walls (second in length worldwide only to the Great Wall of China!). Welcome dinner.

Day 2 : Kayaking In Mali Ston Bay

Mali Ston Bay



Meals Included:

No Meals

Today you will spend the day exploring the Pelješac Peninsula from the water! Mali Ston is a true oasis of peace with its vast vineyards, salt and oyster farms, quiet towns, narrow streets and hidden beaches. Protected from wind and out of the way of any boat traffic, this beautiful and peaceful place has become famous for growing oysters and mussels since the Roman times. We use super comfortable inflatable tandem kayaks that are impossible to capsize and perfect for jumping in and out of all those swimming opportunities! Oyster tasting is an optional extra that is highly recommended (when in Rome…!).

Day 3 : Cycling The Peljašac Peninsula




Meals Included:

No Meals

In Croatia, Pelješac is synonymous with red wines. Today we will cycle through the most famous wine region in Croatia – Dingač, known for its steep slopes where the vines flourish on some near vertical gradients! It would be a shame to not taste some of that famous wine and that’s why we will stop at one of the local family-owned wineries for wine tasting. Our cycling tour will finish in the charming village of Žuljana, where you can finish off a memorable day with some swimming or snorkelling.

Day 4 : Rest Day / Mljet National Park

Ston, Mljet National Park



Meals Included:

No Meals

Time to chill out in the gorgeous surroundings of Ston and Mali Ston. On our “luxury” variant, we offer a day trip to Mljet National Park, an island of exceptional natural beauty just a short ferry ride away. According to legends, this is the place where Ulysses was captured by Calypso in Greek mythology. Mljet is known for its lakes inside of the island and a small island on the biggest lake – St. Marija (a Benedictine monastery from the 13th century). Choose our “standard” package and you can explore on your own with our recommendations (and at extra cost).

Day 5 : Norin River Culture And Gastronomy Kayak




Meals Included:


Time for a truly unique experience in the nearby Neretva Valley. After a short 45-minute transfer, we will take a gentle paddle up the Norin river, an environment that is completely different to that of Ston. River rushes line our route, with plentiful freshwater swimming opportunities both on the way there and back. Our destination is the historic village of Vid, where we will dine at a renowned local restaurant specialising in frog legs (don’t worry, there are other dishes available too!) and visit the archaeological museum just a short walk away.

Day 6 : Napoleon Hiking Trail/Kayaking To A Hidden Beach

Napoleonski put, Žuljana plaža



Meals Included:


Today we’ll hike the Napoleon trail, a road that was built across the Pelješac peninsula in early 1800 by Napoleon’s army. The trail goes from Ston up into the local hills from where you have a unique view of the fortifications, and then it goes through local vineyards, where you can see the sea and island of Mljet in the distance at the same time.

Please note that this option is not always possible in July/August due to heat, in which case we have a pretty awesome Plan B – kayaking to a hidden beach! From Žuljana village, we will paddle to a stunning little cove that can only be accessed from the water, and where snorkelling is possible in some of the clearest waters of the Adriatic. Group evening dinner.

Day 7 : Rest Day / Dubrovnik Visit / White-Water Rafting

Mali Ston, Dubrovnik, River Cetina



Meals Included:

No Meals

You can chill and enjoy the laid-back lifestyle of Mali Ston – or, if you’re thirsty for more adventure, we can organise a day trip up to Omiš near Split for white-water rafting! It’s tremendous fun, taking in cliff jumping, a visit to a cave and lots more splashing before returning to Mali Ston. NB, there is a 3-hour transfer there and back, so if you prefer to avoid time in the car, we can instead recommend a visit to historic Dubrovnik. Get there early to avoid the crowds – or instead go zip-lining almost a kilometre through the sky if you need an adrenaline hit! Activities are at an extra cost.
