Around Rab Island (5 Days)



The following itinerary should be seen as an approximate guide only. Our program may change depend on the local weather and preferences of the group.

Our starting point will depend on the weather conditions. Should there be a stronger eastern wind (Bura) we'll paddle first along the western side of the island, and if there is a strong southern wind (Jugo) we'll paddle along the islands northeastern shore, which will allow us to visit neighboring island of Sv. Grgur (optional detour).

Our goal is to circumnavigate the island, but focus more on remote areas untouched by urbanization or mass tourism. Western side of Rab Island is greener, with numerous beaches, rocky capes and sandy coves in between. Sandy beaches are characteristic for north-eastern side of the island while the east side is very barren, with fewer beaches but amazing cliffs and interesting geological structures.

Day 1 - Coastal Marvels and Hidden Coves

Embark on a thrilling journey as we load our kayaks and set out from the enchanting St. Eufemia bay. Paddling under the historic four tower bells of Old Town Rab, we navigate towards the Island of Love - Frkanj. Our route takes us to the protected Dundovo forest, where azure coves beckon for a refreshing swim. Lunch is a picturesque affair amidst the Kalifront forest, home to the majestic Mediterranean Helm Oak Trees. Snorkel in the submerged caves at Kalifront's cape before reaching our first-night camp on the sandy haven of Maman Island.

Day 2 - Dolphins and Archaeological Wonders

Wake up to breakfast with a view, and then paddle towards the captivating cape of Sorinj. Immerse yourself in the sea's embrace, exploring an archaeological site with ancient amphorae, a site featured by National Geographic. Keep an eye out for dolphins if the sea is calm. Our journey continues to the Lopar peninsula, where we camp near a recently discovered Roman ceramic workshop from the 1st century.

Day 3 - Sandy Beaches and Turquoise Caves

Explore the sandy beaches as we paddle around Lopar. Cross the bay of Crnika to enter the Geological Park of Rab, passing under towering cliffs. Venture to the Medova Buža Cave system, where a turquoise cave beckons for a thrilling jump into its crystal-clear waters, home to a protected colony of bats. Keep watch for Griffin Vultures as we reach the Ilo beach, camping beneath Rab's highest peak, Kamenjak (412 meters).

Day 4 - Nature Park and Hidden Cove

Embark on a day of discovery as we paddle to the red sand bay of Mag. After securing our gear, we cross the 1-mile long canal to reach the breathtaking Nature Park of Zavratnica, a miniature fjord. Swim and snorkel around a sunken World War II ship before retracing our route back to camp.

Day 5 - Journey's End with Coastal Bliss

Our final day unfolds with a paddle towards the Rab Ferry port and the inviting Pudarica beaches, where a refreshing swim awaits. As we head back to our starting point under the iconic four tower bells and fortification walls of Old Town Rab, we reflect on the memories made during this unforgettable kayaking expedition. Empty your kayaks, bid farewell, and who knows, your next adventure may be just around the corner.

Packing of the kayak is very important as we share the load. Do not take any unnecessary things, too much clothes or bulky items. The 20l dry bag should be enough for your personal items.

We suggest to come a day earlier to the island and have a good night's rest.

If you need accommodation for the first night, feel free to ask. Price range is from 30,00 € for a room and 45-60,00 € for an apartment (not per person).

You can leave your suitcase or backpack at our base for free.

Car parking is free of charge, close to the starting point.
