Get to know Lokrum island and its nature reserve alongside an expert who will provide context on the islands geological and botanical significance. Lokrum is a green island, covered in fertile land and lush flora. However, what lies underneath that thin layer is clearly visible only at the shore: the whole island is made of thick layers of sedimentary rock – limestone and dolomite. The sedimentary rocks hide an interesting geological story millions of years old – they used to be a part of the Adriatic-Dinaridic carbonate platform. The platform’s remains still make up the karst region in Croatia, from Karlovac, Gorski Kotar and Lika to Istria, the Croatian Littoral and Dalmatia, but its largest part has sunk under the Adriatic Sea.

Travel by ferry from Dubrovnik to the island (only ~15 mins). Enjoy a walking tour of the island with a naturalist and then explore on your own before returning to Dubrovnik.
