Piknik Dubrovnik: The Ultimate Picnic Experience

With sweeping views, gorgeous beaches, and killer cuisine, Dubrovnik, Croatia is a can’t miss destination. Yes, it can be crowded in the peak season but that’s no reason to miss the “pearl of the Adriatic.” We visited in September, which is the shoulder season and much less crowded than summer – if you’re wondering. At some point, I knew I wanted to do a food tour so I did my usual research and found this gem called Piknik Dubrovnik.

Piknik Dubrovnik offers a unique kind of picnic because they do all the work for you by including, absolutely, everything you need for the ultimate picnic. I mean it, they give you plates, silverware, napkins, insulated sleeves for the wine and cold lemonade, cute little tiffin boxes with a variety of insanely good food, a tray so your food doesn’t have to sit on the ground, a blanket so you don’t have to sit on the ground, and they pack it all in a nifty backpack so you can pick it up and be on your way.

You can choose from two different “pikniks” and, of course, the menu changes often since they only use the freshest ingredients. One thing I loved was how they asked about food allergies and our likes and dislikes – making it a pretty custom menu. Here’s an idea of what they offer in each package: *Please note: Prices are subject to change.

    Piknik on a sailboat…that must have been a great experience. Sunny skies and the stunning blue of the Adriatic. The salads and desserts got me hungry.

    This is such a good idea, I love it. We’re always looking for unique ways to discover local produce and this sounds perfect. Think you took the right option on the boat!

    I LOVE this idea! We once used a similar service in Canada and hiked to a waterfall where we got to enjoy our picnic- such a great!

    That looks so great, and so much food. I love that it comes complete with everything you need neatly put into a backpack so it’s easy to hike out somewhere special. Of course, I would sail rather than hike if I were as clever as you. To me, the salads looked like the highlight, but I am a huge fan of good salads.

    Oh my all these look delicious. What a wonderful heart warming picnic! The two types of picniks that we can choose from seems like a really good option. The beauty of Dubrovnik, has been haunting me since I saw it in a movie.

    We really want to visit Dubrovnik this year. This idea sounds interesting as everything is there for you and you get the local food. We should give it a try when we get there.

      You won’t be disappointed when you visit! We absolutely loved staying in Old Town even though people warn you about the crowds. In our experience, the crowds thin out around 5 pm or earlier as the cruise ships leave. In the evening, it was great because there are tons of restaurants to choose from, great bars and awesome nightlife.

    This is perfect. Another picnic spot near Dubrovnik is Locrum Island. Did you go there?

      We did and it was great! We spent 7 days in Dubrovnik so we saw as much as possible. There are so many hidden gems around the city with incredible views – it would be hard not to find one!

    I don’t know why but just the word “piknik” makes me smile 🙂 It looks like an absolutely treat, especially on the water! Nice to know they can accommodate most allergies or food restrictions as well.

    I wish we had a service like this in China! I’m planning a romantic picnic for my girlfriend’s birthday and something like this would be perfect.

    I’ll have to keep it in mind if we ever visit Croatia!

    You had me at charcuterie board! But everything else looks and sounds absolutely delicious too! I had no idea this was something you could do in Dubrovnik and would definitely love to next time I go.

    We’ve just had to head out of Croatia because of super bad weather an have arrived in Italy. So long to explore the country more – we only got to see Zagreb. Next year. Thanks for the inspiration – sailing and pikniks, now that’s a great combo. Kx

    What a wonderful idea. It looks delicious! I was in Dubrovnik last year – shame I didn’t think about it. I will go to Split next w/e and will check if there’s something similar.
