Dubrovnik, Croatia

Experience hosted by Mare

Includes food, equipment
Up to 8 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

Hiking is a fantastic workout for burning calories and often you can even forget completely that you are technically exercising.
Skip the Old Town for 3 hours and wander off with us up to the top of a mountain Srdj through the paths known only by local people and are rarely visited by tourists and enjoy in the magnificent sunset! Srdj is the mountain that rises above Dubrovnik Town and it is 412 meters high. As you climb to the top of Mount Srđ, stunning views of the walled town below open to you with a panorama of the whole coast stretching as far as the Pelješac peninsula to the northwest. At the top, there is an old military fort built during Napoleonic wars at the beginning of the 19th century. Nowadays it is used as a Museum of the Croatian war for independence. Afterward, hike to another part of the mountain through the paths known only by local people and mountaineers. The hike continues with a descent down the north-west side of the mountain which gives you a beautiful view of the new port (port Gruz) and Elafiti archipelago at sunset. The path is well marked but rocky, so a pair of harder trainers or hiking shoes are necessary. The whole hike is 8 kilometers (5 miles) long
Other things to note
The departure time of the hike depends on the season, usually about 3 hours before sunset. You will receive an e-mail with a time of departure. Level of fitnesses is moderate. The trip ends in Gruz

Amazing experience for whoever wants to skip the crowds/ cable car and enjoy more the landscape. The level of the hike is moderate and it is totally worth it: the views on the way are very beautiful. I recommend it!

What a beauutiful experience this was. I really enjoyed this hike and felt like I was very well taken care of. I highly recommend this to anyone who is a fan of nature and would like to see Dubrovnik from a different viewpoint. I really appreciated the conversations we had and the recommendations to visit other areas. Very good knowledge of Dubrovnik and surrounding areas that only locals would know about. Hopefully see you in future for more hikes. :D

Highly recommend this special experience. Mare took us on the hike trails that only the locals would know which leads to spectacular views. She is very friendly and so wonderful. We chatted about culture, local lives, travel, politics etc. And when we had to depart, we felt she is a good friend of ours already! Take care Mare! x

Dubrovnik is a wonderful city but is very much crowded. This is a good option to get away from the crowd, with nature and some mesmerising view from the top of the mountain. I would describe this as must have experience if you are in Dubrovnik
