Bits of History – Whole day Kayak Tour

€130 per person

Let us take you through history while being immersed in nature and the sea!

In this tour, we will explore history and nature through a kayak experience.
We will take you to the little islands in front of Lumbarda and all the way to the old town of Korčula.

Our stops will include some of the old quarries dating from Antiquity on the islands of Vrnik, Sutvara, and Kamenjak to later ones on Vrnik which are a testimony to the continuity and tradition of quarrying until this very day.  Numerous buildings and art pieces in Korčula, nearby Dubrovnik, but also in places outside of the Dubrovnik-Neretva County, were made from stone from Vrnik.

Our next stop will be an old Franciscan monastery on the island Badija which had a turbulent past but managed to keep its beauty. Later on, we will just paddle to take a sneak peek at the beautiful old town of Korčula.

Lunch is included and will be served in hidden restaurant on one of the small islands.

We will stop to relax and swim in different locations depending on the group’s wishes.

Please note – Depending on the group desires and fitness level we will be modifying the tour.

Complimentary – Coffee or tea, Lunch and Wine tasting – famous white wine called “GRK” from Lumbarda and a homemade local pastry called “Klašun”.
