Elaphite Islands Tour: What vacation memories are made of
Sipping wine, floating on the bluest Adriatic waters, with the sound of fish sizzling on the gill and the sun overhead — it all melds together to create an epiphany about how wonderful it is to be alive.
Dubrovnik, Croatia, is where Europeans go to relax and play. This charming city provides the perfect launching point for an AutoVenture excursion to the sun-splashed Elaphite Islands, aboard its private, brand-new Cap Camarat 755 speedboat. Spacious and fast, the vessel jets vacationers to numerous stops in order to explore everything the three islands have to offer.
Less time on the boat means more time for leisure, beaches, meals and walks through the islands’ villages. There’s even caving. The trip stops at the three largest islands in the Elaphite archipelago: Koločep, Šipan and Lopud. Evidence of their historic popularity include the ruins of 500-year-old, patricians’ (Roman aristocrats) summer residences, which overlook the wooded slopes of these islands.
After walking the winding paths through olive trees and gardens on Koločep, the journey continues to Lopud, where vacationers will explore a Franciscan monastery and a 15th-century church. The most developed of the islands, Lopud has numerous parks and beaches, including gardens with orange and lemon trees. Sightseeing continues at Šipan, the largest of the islands, with quiet bays, beaches and green cypress groves. There, a bountiful lunch will prepared, featuring grilled fish and refreshing Dalmatian wine, accompanied by a local band performing traditional Dalmatian music.
Come discover what Europeans have known for centuries and enjoy a sunny getaway with AutoVenture.
