Day 1: Arriving in Dubrovnik Airport KE Land Only package services begin with a group transfer to our hotel in the Konavle Valley, a beautiful region of vineyards located between the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic Sea and the dramatic Snijenica mountains. We meet our guide who will give us a briefing on the week ahead over dinner. Overnight at the group hotel.
Day 2: After breakfast we have a short transfer through the valley to the village of Kuna where we will start our first walk - climbing to the splendid viewpoint of Mount Snjeznica, the highest peak in the region. Returning to Kuna we transfer back to our hotel for dinner.
Day 3: We drive along the coast to the port of Dubrovnik and here catch a ferry to the island of Lopud. Part of a chain known as the the Elaphiti Islands, our walk takes us through pine forest to the sandy beach of Sunj where we can enjoy some swimming in the clear waters of the Adriatic before we catch the ferry back to Dubrovnik and then drive along the coast to Ston. Overnight at a hotel.
Day 4: Ston famously boasts the longest city wall in Europe. Today's walk starts atop the wall, following it for approximately one kilometre before continuing along the bay to the small village of Broce. We end with a traverse of the hills above the town, returning to Ston through fields and farms. In the late afternoon we take a ferry to the island of Mljet where we check in to our hotel in Polace Town
Day 5: A fascinating day of hiking in the Mljet Island National Park. We ascend the highest point, Peak Montokuc and make a circular walk around the salt lakes.
