Dubrovnik gastro walking tour
(1. – 8. October 2018.)

Trip Overview

This trip will show you why the City of Dubrovnik has been on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites since 1979. A simple hike to the Imperial Fortress built in 1806, during the reign of Napoleon, will offer you a spectacular view over the city’s impressive stone architecture and signature red roofs. A relaxing stroll through the beautiful forest park of Petka above Dubrovnik or an enjoyable walk down along the cobbled streets of the old city will quickly make you realize what a true gem Dubrovnik really is.

It is not only the Old City that takes all the fame; surrounding islands and charming hinterland contribute greatly to Dubrovnik’s nickname “The Jewel of the Adriatic”. Wander along the coastal walking paths of Koločep island next to centuries-old pine trees, wild lavender and olive groves. Hop to the island of Lopud, where ancient Greek, Roman and Slavic ruins can be seen. Walk along steep serpentine bends from village to village, hike towards the old railway path and enjoy exploring beautiful landscape of the very south of Croatia.

Long leisure walks do wonders for the appetite, and traditional Croatian taverns are as much a highlight along the way as the landscapes and history.

Kalamota’s secret hiking tour

Koločep is a green island west of Dubrovnik and one of the favorite excursion spots. Locally known as Kalamota, this island is the most inhabited in southern Croatia and belongs to a group of islands called the Elaphite Islands.

There are two main villages at the island, Gornje Čelo and Donje Čelo, connected by the only major road. The island’s beautiful protected forest park is filled with Aleppo pines, 100-year old pine groves, cypress and coastal pines. Charming gardens full of orange and lemon trees can be seen all over the island. Just imagine all these scents in the air while strolling the island!

We will travel by boat from Dubrovnik harbor to the port of Donje Čelo. From there, we will walk through the village toward the remains of the church of St. Michael, dating from the 6th century. We will continue a bit further west along narrow paths leading to the south side of the island.

As we stroll along lovely trails through the woods of the coastal belt, we will see unique cliff formations with centuries-old pines hanging above. We will follow the seashore path to the lighthouse of St. Andrija and towards Jekavac Bay. Our final destination for the day will be the village of Gornje Čelo.
