“"Island paddladise"”
Reviewed 26 August 2013

We had an extremely enjoyable week paddling around the Elaphite islands with a great group of people and two very talented and informative guides: Amir and Radovan. The weather was superb, the sea was warm, the waves were small or non-existent; it was perfect conditions for a relaxing kayaking holiday.
The two islands where we stayed, Lopud and Sipan, are quiet and unspoilt by commercialism. Lopud has no roads or motor cars; transport across the island is by golf buggies. Sipan, the larger island, does have a road network and (mainly old) cars but these were not noticeable in the village where we were staying.
The kayaking trips were not strenuous, we had stops for swimming and sight seeing (local sea caves) during the longer journeys. Basic instruction was given on how to paddle correctly and what to do in the event of a capsize and how to re-enter the craft - there were no capsizes!
The guides were knowledeable and approachable and erred on the side of caution when strong winds were forecast.
The activities kept us occupied during the day and the evenings were spent having relaxing meals in the restaurants watching the glorious sunsets and making friends with the other members of the group.
Overall it was a fantastic holiday helped by excellent weather and beautiful scenery; we would love to go again.

What a fantastic company Adria Adventures is! Professional, supportive, very well informed. They can't do enough for you. A real pleasure. And what a beautiful country Croatia is. Many, many thanks to Ivana, Radovan and all the team in Dubrovnik. V. Highly recommended.

“Third trip to lopud”
Reviewed 18 August 2013

We have just returned from our third fantastic trip with adria adventure to lopud and have had another wonderful holiday. We don't often repeat holidays so for us to return for the third time is a recommendation on its own. All the staff of adria adventure were as friendly and helpful as you could wish for and go out of their way to make sure everyone has a great experience, and as for the location it is hard to imagine anywhere more beautiful and better suited to a kayaking holiday. I am sure this wont be our last visit!

“Sea Kayaking in the Elaphite Islands”
Reviewed 17 August 2013

Wow! From the moment we landed at Dubrovnik Airport to the moment we were returned to the airport a week later Adria Adventure Sea Kayaking were brilliant! Nothing was too much trouble for our guides. Our accomodation on Lopud Island was lovely as was our accomodation on Sipan. All of the cafes where we ate breakfast and had lunch and dinner were good too, so we were never hungry! Amir was a super guide, nothing seemed rushed although we were aware he had a timetable to keep to, if only roughly! Holiday makers and timings do not go together easily. A lovley group of people to kayak with. Also thanks to Mateja who was with us for the first part of the week, another lovely guide. A week of pleasant paddling with swimming in caves, playing in kayaks , looking at scenery and walking across the island of Lopud.
A fab week!!!

“Elaphite Islands One Week Kayaking - Fantastic”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

Just home from a memorable kayaking holiday. Lovely mix of paddling and free time. Most helpful guides Amir and Matej, kindly dealt with differing abilities and are great guys. Ivana and co, at base, went out of their way to facilitate an extension to our trip. During the transfer back to the airport the driver recommended a restaurant, dropped us off and came back to complete the transfer. Great service! Croatia is beautiful, accommodation is satisfactory/above average, great group and leaders - what a holiday! Five stars.
