Full description
Spend a relaxing day exploring the mussel and oyster farms, salt flats, and many charming cafes, with a lunch of fresh mussels, oysters, and local wine included. Your driver will pick you up at your hotel and you will head to Ston in a comfortable, fully air-conditioned vehicle. After about an hour and a quarter of driving, you will arrive in Hodilje from where you will take a small boat that will take you to a local oysters and mussels farm, to see how local farmers farm them. Finally, you arrive to island of Ostrog, where your hosts will wait for you, with fresh oysters right out of sea, ready to be served. They will also prepare a traditional Croatian dish made of mussels, called "Buzara". This gastronomic delight will be complete with domestic Croatian wine.

After this, you will head to Ston and your driver/guide will take you to the city and reveal to you some local history during a half an hour walking tour. You will also visit salt pans where you can see the production of salt that hasn't changed for two thousand years. If you wish, you can take a coffee break at one of the cafes on the main square or take a swim at the nearby sandy beach.

On the way back to Dubrovnik, you will stop at Trsteno Arboretum and spend about one hour there. This garden is full of exotic plants because the family which established it in the 15th Century requested all the ship captains to bring back seeds from their journeys all over the world. The garden was also used for shooting some of the scenes in the popular Game of Thrones series. Before heading back to Dubrovnik, you can refresh yourself at the beach situated near the pier in Trsteno.
