Welcome to Dubrovnik, we’re so happy to have you here. If this is your first time visiting Dubrovnik then there is so much for you to do, see and experience. Some of the best tours in Dubrovnik you can do are the classics, of course. You can go for a walk on the city walls of Dubrovnik, join a boat tour going to Lokrum island or take the cable car up to the Srđ mountain. These are the things every traveler in Dubrovnik could or should do during their visit. That’s a great introduction to the city of Dubrovnik and helps you understand our local culture and history.
But then what? Two days in, you’ve managed to cover all of the classics, right? That’s why you’re reading about our perfect family friendly adventures starting in Dubrovnik.
No matter how beautiful Dubrovnik is, it’s still a rather small city. Not much time is needed for you and your family to cover all of the basics and start exploring other options. We’re happy to help. Our day tours in Dubrovnik are a great way to explore the Dubrovnik area. All of them are departing from Dubrovnik and will bring you back to Dubrovnik as well. It’s very easy to pick just one of them, two or even three to fill up your calendar in Croatia. If you don’t have anything planned yet, of course.
In case you would need a customized program, that can also be taken care of. Multiple day tours can be combined into a full week of adventures for you and your family. You have chosen your accommodation but not sure what to do during your time here, then we jump in and help you organize your holiday with our services like private tours, private guides or private drivers.
We’re here to make your stay in Dubrovnik as comfortable as possible. Welcome to the Lighthouse Adventure Travel.
After our morning pick-up in Dubrovnik and 1hr ride north, we arrive to the city of Mali Ston where we will be joining our local oyster farmer on his boat, exploring the oyster farms and learning how they are grown, farmed and best served.
The oysters come fresh out of the Adriatic sea, with a dash of lemon and some olive oil. Why is this tour great for my family, you might wonder? Because we can jump straight into the Adriatic sea and swim through an oyster farm, in some of the cleanest waters the Adriatic sea has. Following with some free time in the city of Ston for lunch (at own expense) and walking around the world’s second longest walled fortifications, you will be ready to continue with our journey.
Finally, as we are driving back to Dubrovnik, we are stopping in the small village of Trsteno to visit the local arboretum, dating back to 1498., being the oldest one in the region. After our small detour, we are ready to finish our day in the Pearl of the Adriatic.
After the morning pick-up and a 45min drive south, we arrive to a whole different scenery, away from Dubrovnik. Welcome to Konavle valley, home to some of the best wines this region has to offer. Our day begins in the village of Cilipi, where we will attend a local folklor festivity and have a chance to see how courting between men and women looked like in the old days.
So then we can do some research in the local museum on how lace is being produced and used by local people in its most traditional ways. Now, we are tasting some local wines and sharing a lunch with a local family. Yes, wine is the part of the day where only adults can have fun. For the younger travelers in your family, we have a beach ready.
Swimming in one of Europe’s top 20 beaches will be something your kids will definitely love. Especially when they come back home to tell it to their friends. Finally, as our day ends, a bottle of the family’s wine makes a perfect gift for someone special back home as we drive back to Dubrovnik.
After our morning pick-up in Dubrovnik and 1.5hr ride north, we arrive to the city of Orebić where we start our day off with a nice, easy bike ride to the next village of Viganj so we can spare some time for us to enjoy a swim in the Adriatic sea.
Cycling back, we are stopping for a lunch break (at own expense) before we continue to our wineries. We will make two stops and have a wine tasting with some of the best sorts the peninsula can give us. Most noteworthy are the Plavac Mali and Dingač. With our stomachs full and our taste buds surprised with great Croatian wines, our journey back home to Dubrovnik begins.
Your adventure starts early in the morning as we pick you up in Dubrovnik and begin our 3hr scenic drive along the Adriatic coast, going south towards Montenegro and moving up into the mountains of the north.
And as we arrive to our riverside camp, hidden in the bottom of the Tara river canyon, you will be outfitted for your rafting trip which covers the most attractive rapids of the river, from Brstanovica to Sčepan Polje. Following lunch at the camp will recharge your batteries and get you ready for our trip back home, right in time for the sunset in Dubrovnik.
With the morning pick-up in Dubrovnik, our journey begins as we follow the Adriatic coast, heading towards the hidden gem that goes by the name of Montenegro. Almost on the water, our first destination is the UNESCO protected world heritage site – walled city of Kotor, positioned in a submerged river canyon. As we reach the hilltop fortress protecting the city, we will be able to see our playground for the afternoon.
After lunch (at own expense) we are taking our sea kayaks and start paddling our way to the medieval city of Perast for some leisure time and sight-seeing. As our paddling session ends, we continue with our drive back to Dubrovnik to finish with our adventure.
