The most interesting hiking tracks are located in Konavle region beside Cavtat and all across peninsula Peljesac.

Snijeznica Track - This track is in Konavle. After meeting up we drive to Mihanici which is at 200 m above sea-level. From there we stride for about 1,5 hours and we reach Kuna Konavoska at 730 m where we make a pause and enjoy in domestic produce of Konavle Region (cheese, prosciuto, home baked bread). After the pause we continue to te top of Snijeznica. we need two hours of hiking to reach the top and the height of 1234 m, thus reaching the highest peak in Dubrovnik Region and the chapel of St. Ilija.

Obod Track - The track starts of 3 km off Cavtat in the town of Obod. From there we begin our 2 hour climb while enjoying the view. We reach the Velji dol and stop there for lunch. Afterwards we continue for another 2 hour climb to reach the 701 m high hill top Strazisce. The hill is the place where American minister Ronald Brown died in a plane crash. Nowadays a great cross is located at the sight of the crash.

Žuljana Track - Organised transport brings us to the town of Žuljana on peninsula Pelješac from where we will start our climb by a narrow track made for fire-prevention purposes. The track will take us through the dense wooded slopes to the top of the 469 m high Sv. Ivan hill. The amazing view from the top of the hill reaches even to the islands of Mljet and Korcula. After the climb we get back to Zuljana for the possibility of visit to a local winery and an organised lunch break.

St. Bartholomew Track - Our transport takes us once more to Pelješac but this time to visit the medieval Ston, a genuine example of a perfect Renaissance town. The Ston is most famous for its beautiful defensive walls which are one of the longest in the world. The traditional Ston salt works is an additional attraction. After visiting the salt works we proceed to climb the St. Bartholomew, a 450 m high hill overlooking the town of Ston and the salt works. The track is demanding, but the prize of reaching the top is priceless.

Orebić Track - Orebić is a small sea-town on the peninsula Pelješac just across the channel of Korčula. The hiking starts from Orebic. Our goal is a 962m high Sv. Ilija peak, the second highest peak in the region. After two hours of following unique stone-built tracks and karst environment we reach a mountain lodge for a break and refreshments. After the break we continue for another two hours to conquer the top.
