Touring by kayak gives you an intimate view of Dubrovnik area and Elaphiti islands. The islands are small and close together, so paddling by kayak is an ideal way see a great deal in a single day. Pedal and Paddle begins with a ferry ride to Lopud Island from the ferry terminal in Dubrovnik's Gruz Harbor.

Kayak from Lopud to Sipan Island, the most remote of the three inhabited Elaphiti Islands. A one-hour paddle brings us to a small fishing village on Sipan, where we abandon kayaks for bicycles. Sipan has a rich and colorful history dating back to Ragusa’s 15th century Renaissance. A single tarmac road bisects the island, connecting its two small villages. Cycle past vineyards, aristocratic villas, olive groves, old stone churches, and lush landscape to Luka Sipanska, an unpretentious village nestled in a deep bay. Lunch in Luka affords beautiful views of the outer uninhabited Elaphiti Islands backed by the Peljesac Peninsula beyond. Pedal to the island’s small sandy beach on a peninsula for a swim in Luka Sipanska’s inland bay or venture into the open sea. After swimming, and lunch in Luka, cycle back to kayaks for the paddle back to Lopud and the ferry ride home.

Lunch, at a small restaurant in Luka Sipanska's serving the day's freshest catch, is one of the many highlights on Pedal & Paddle. Lunch is not included in the tour price.
