Piknik Dubrovnik was created from the heart, and inspired by the natural beauty of Croatia.

A picnic is about experience, as much as it is about delicious food - and nothing is better than the freedom of enjoying a meal outdoors. Our passion is exploring, and we have brought together the best of what makes Croatia so special. 

FROM THE SEA TO THE SKY... SUPERB FOOD AND WINES IN UNFORGETTABLE SETTINGS THIS IS WHAT WE HOPE TO SHARE WITH YOU. We inspire, and you go!

Whether you imagine a panoramic view, wish to kayak to a pebbled cove, explore an ancient fort, island hop, or lounge in a shaded olive grove - we have designed our piknik kits to travel anywhere. From years of preparing our own adventures, we have thought of every detail you may need to enjoy a perfect meal al fresco.

We stock your insulated piknik backpack with a delicious selection of local specialties, from savoury to sweet. The wine is chilled, local and carefully chosen - and we always throw in a few surprises to make things extra memorable. 

LET US INSPIRE YOU!

All you need to do is pick your piknik destination and head out to experience the true Dalmatia.

LOKRUM ISLAND PIKNIK 

A short 15 minute ferry hop to paradise! Boats depart frequently from the Old Town Harbour, making Lokrum Island our most popular location for a piknik.  The island an oasis with plenty of space and shade to escape to when the town gets busy and hot. Pine scented forest trails lead to historical monastery grounds, botanical gardens, Game of Thrones locations, a hilltop fort with views of Dubrovnik, and many idyllic swim spots. Find your own paradise, as there is plenty of room. The olive groves provide lovely shade and grass to lay out a piknik. A great day for families - the kids will love the peacocks, rabbits and donkeys that are the only permanent guests on the island! Learn the fascinating history and legend of Lokrum. Tickets for Lokrum are not included in the piknik price. (80 kuna). We provide a map suggesting great piknik spots and sights.

SECRET BEACH DAY TRIP PIKNIK

A day of adventure - True Dalmatia!

A great start to your day is a relaxing boat trip south, to the village of Cavtat. This is only the beginning of your adventure. Hop in a taxi that will take you for a quick drive through the pretty villages of Konavle valley  to the trailhead. You will wind your way down a breathtaking trail and through a cave to a spectacular beach! Undeniably one of the best hidden swim spots in the region. Pop up your sun umbrella we lend you, cool off in the sea, and enjoy your piknik. Your taxi will come retrieve you at your predetermined time. On your return, we suggest you enjoy what Cavtat has to offer - funky beach bars under the pines, the charming atelier of Croatian painter Vlaho Bukovac, and the historical cemetery on the hill with a mausoleum designed by Croatia's most famous sculptor Ivan Mestrovic. Grab and ice cream and stroll the pretty harbour promenade and peninsula. If you are enjoying it so much that you miss your last boat back to Dubrovnik, there are always taxis and local buses that will take you home. See us for details on this great day you won't forget.

PANORAMIC PIKNIKS

Incredible views-great for sunset.

The cable car takes you up to the top of Srd hill for a fantastic bird's eye view of the Old Town, Lokrum and the Elaphite islands stretching out below. Option to walk up/down as well - for the ambitious! Another moderate hike/walk is south of town to Orusula Park to a viewpoint and some ruins of a tiny chapel. Lovely view, and very romantic spot likely to have to yourself. Map provided.

ELAPHITE ISLAND HOP PIKNIK

Experience Island life!

The islands of Kolocep, Lopud, and Sipan will charm you. Easily reached by a local ferry or by the island hop tours, this is a lovely way to spend your day. Find a secluded bay, or one of the churches that boast hilltop views. All three islands have easy walking trails and pretty villages to explore. Lopud Island boasts a sandy beach, and Sipan is our favourite for really feeling like you are experiencing Dalmatian island life. Ask us for details and tips.

"When I was younger, and we ate something special that someone had prepared, we would say that we could taste the love that was used to prepare that food.  That was certainly true with our piknik."  Paul C. USA

"Now to the meal itself. We got out our menu and wow it was fabulous! There were lots of little boxes and it was great to open them up to reveal their delicious contents. The tiffin box was so great! A lovely touch.  Everything was fresh and a great deal of thought had gone into the ingredients.. so you felt at least you were getting real local food.  Truly perfect". 

"Everything was wonderful.  The highlights for me were (1) the pork tenderloin with the delicious cheese, fig jam and pear slices: and (2) the fresh pressed olive oil - I never tasted anything like that!.. and (2) the variety of different foods you provided that allowed us to enjoy so many different foods (and drinks)." Paul C. USA

And George went to Lokrum island..."It was so lovely, the location, sites, the art by the well you told me about, and of course eating your delicious Piknik lunch seaside!   Loved all the food and drink, just wish I could have eaten it all!  Took what I could, also enjoyed feeding the peacocks and rabbits.  Thanks again, wonderful to meet you and all the best!"  George, USA

"It was one of the best parts of our entire European trip! Thank you! Delish!" Anna, Australia
