Spend a day cruising around Croatia's pretty Elaphiti Islands aboard a replica of a historical galleon. Sail from Dubrovnik around the sun-baked archipelago and enjoy free time to explore the islands of Kolocep, Lopud and Sipan. A traditional Croatian lunch is also included.

During this cruise you will see the three most beautiful islands of the Dubrovnik archipelago – Kolocep, Lopud and Sipan commonly known as the Elaphiti islands. Green islands, with gardens full of oranges and lemons and lovely seashore landscapes, charming and picturesque villages with harmonious architecture of summer manors; old seamen's houses and little votive churches. Yours to discover and enjoy!
