If you ever looked up some travel guide, you must have heard of Dubrovnik. It’s charming, it’s picturesque, it’s star-studded, and it’s usually a place where many people want to spend part of their charter. What I’ve seen with many yachts is that they typically bring their guests to the Old Town, organise a tour of the city and meal at some of the well-known restaurants, and that’s it.
And it’s pleasantly spent time, for sure. However, there are so many other things one can do to enjoy the wider city area. Choosing from numerous outdoor adventures or simply exploring the area outside of the Old Town will help you create everlasting memories.
In today’s post, we will focus on activities you can dive in (pun-intended) and fully immerse in everything Dubrovnik has to offer.
Srdj hill Quad Tour
In search of a new experience? Enjoy a Srdj hill in a slightly different manner – ATV motors are an excellent option if you would like to go a bit off the beaten track. You will get to appreciate stunning landscapes, a bit of physical activity and a sense of newness to the entire experience. During the tour, you can have a coffee with a view, just think: Dubrovnik Old Town architecture overview, mountains and sea. You can enjoy the cable car ride on your way back.
Jet Ski Safari Around Islands
Jet sea safari, diving and kayaking are top-choice activities if you want to really feel the Adriatic sea. It is quite practical as well – pump your adrenaline with jet ski safari, use diving for researching underwater nature or get some physical activity with kayaking or SUP boards.
And with jet skis, you can have a fantastic and exciting seaside tour of Cavtat, Dubrovnik Zupa and spectacular walls of the city. Enjoy the ride, discover the islands Bobara, Mrkan, Supetar and Lokrum, explore beautiful nature and swim in crystal clear Adriatic Sea.
Game of Thrones Kayaking Tour
If you are a fan of the famous TV show “Game of Thrones” you will enjoy this tour – just imagine: a local guy who shares the same level of obsession with the show, taking you around the venues the scenes were shot. Via this tour, you will also see other essential Dubrovnik spots.
During this five-hour-long Dubrovnik kayak adventure tour you will also see beautiful Lokrum Island. Tour starts beneath the ancient fort Lovrjenac; the location that is well known as Red Keep Gate in GOT, in the small port called Pile (also used in the series), underneath the restaurant Orhan.
Stories about the famous scenes, together with the picturesque scenarios, will take you to the world of dragons and battles, making you feel like you are on the set. In the “Visitor Center”, you can take a photo on the replica of the “Iron Throne”.
Lokrum is not only famous because of Game Of Thrones. From 1976 it is a protected area and listed as a “Special reserve of forest vegetation”. The medieval Benedictine monastery, the Fort Royal, the botanical garden, and seawater lake, called Dead sea, the peacocks, together with the mysterious legends about Lokrum, could be your best time on vacations in Dubrovnik.
