DAY 2 Kotor kayaking and ramparts walking

The old town of Kotor is one of the best-preserved medieval towns in this part of the Mediterranean. The unique architecture of the town can be recognized in the asymmetric nature of the narrow streets and squares, as well as the medieval architecture.Built by the Venetians, their style is instantly recognisable in the buildings around the town. The town wall itself is fifteen metres wide and twenty metres high, strong enough to withstand years of attacks on this impressive town!

DAY 4 Kayak to the Lady of the Rock island and town of Perast

It’s back onto the water today, as you return to your kayak and head out on the lake once more. On the Gulf of Kotor once more, you head first for Our Lady of the Rock. Legend tells that this island was formed by the seamen who kept an ancient oath after finding a religious icon on the island in 1452. Each time they returned from a successful voyage, these seamen laid a rock in the bay, which became this island. To mark this event, every July local residents take their boats and throw rocks into the sea, widening the surface of the island. After your visit this year, be sure to return, as the island will not be the same size again!
