Magnificent Dubrovnik archipelago
The Elaphiti Islands are an archipelago of 13 larger and smaller islands, situated slightly northwest of Dubrovnik. There are two theories about how they got their name. The first one says it comes from the word “elaphite” which is a Greek word for deer, as the arrangement of the islands’ reefs, bays, and isthmuses resembles a set of magnificently ramified deer horns.
The second one claims it is because of the large population of deer who used to live on these islands a long time ago. There are three larger islands which are inhabited: Koločep (the locals call it Kalamota), Lopud and Šipan. On our Elaphiti islands tour, we will visit all three of them and explore their hidden treasures.
Swim, snorkel, explore and take fantastic photos
Outstanding natural beauties and historical sites
The tour starts with a short Old Town panorama. Soon after, we will arrive at Koločep, as it is closest to Dubrovnik. Koločep boasts with five caves, of which the Blue cave is the most famous. There you will have an opportunity to swim, snorkel and take fantastic photos. The magnificent turquoise sea surrounding it will surely mesmerize you.
The next island we will visit is Lopud. It used to house two monasteries, thirty churches and several noble palaces, although only remnants of this magnificent past are visible today. If you wish, we can make a reservation for lunch in one of the best local restaurants serving freshly caught fish. Lopud is a car-free island with two large sandy beaches. One is in the main village, and on the south side of the island, there is a stunning large sandy beach Šunj located in a beautiful bay, surrounded by trees. If you are a GoT series fan, you are lucky because we can take you to some of the filming locations on the island.
Elaphiti islands tour is a perfect getaway from the rush in the city and it offers a great opportunity to experience the autochthon island culture in the Dubrovnik area.
