If island-hopping and multi-sport experiences make you smile, this is the tour for you.
Just as its name implies, you’ll visit three islands and get the chance to trade your paddle for pedals midway through the excursion.
Suitable for all ages, experience levels, and groups, the day starts by meeting with our guide in our base on Lopud. After spending time discussing technique and safety, we’ll launch toward the island of Ruda and then paddle to Šipan and its harbor town of Šuđurađ.
We trade kayaks for mountain bikes (before hopping on the saddle, we will discuss equipment and routes, which are customizable to cater to different physical abilities) and cycle across the island through vineyards, olive groves, chapels, and medieval villages.
In the village of Šipanska Luka on the island’s north end, we’ll stop for a delicious lunch of local delicacies at one of the region’s best kept restaurant secrets. After dessert, we’ll relax with a swim in the Adriatic before heading back the way we came. The tour ends back on Lopud around 6 pm.
What to bring: drinking water, sun block, hat, sunglasses (with a leash) and long-sleeve T-shirt if you are particularly sensitive to the sun. Bathing suits should be worn under your clothes and active sandals (Teva, Merrell, etc.) are great for kayaking, light hiking and can work for biking but for pedalling we recommend light sport shoes. We can provide guests with basic aqua shoes. Towels are useful. Bring a small backpack for biking and spare (warm) clothes in pre and post season. Except that you’ll need some cash for lunch.
