All in the line of duty. There is a new attraction in Dubrovnik that will take you to places you have never been before. And in the spirit of adventure and, well, sheer curiosity The Dubrovnik Times took a ride 50 metres above sea-level, and a rocky beach.

Zipline Dubrovnik is the latest adventure ride in Dubrovnik. If you are an adrenaline junkie, an adventure hunter or just want to have a whole new experience then Zipline Dubrovnik has it all in bundles. You’ll “fly” high over one of the most picturesque beaches in the region and have unbelievable views over the twinkling turquoise Adriatic and the green islands on the horizon.
I think it would be fair to say that at The Dubrovnik Times we normally like to keep our feet as close to terra firma as possible. But it isn’t every day that you can get top try such a unique experience in Dubrovnik, and as these guys were the first we jumped in, well feet first.

At 250 metres in length and roughly 60 metres above the shoreline it certainly is an impressive sight as you stand ready to speed over the beach. Trepidation was probably the overriding feeling. However once lift off begins there is no looking back (or looking down) and the ride is simply stupendous.

The whoosh as the warm Adriatic air whizzes by, it is about as close as you’ll get to becoming a bird. The whole experience started with an extensive training and safety course. With Zipline Dubrovnik safety always comes first. The team are friendly and always on hand to answer questions, of which we had many. “Can I get a parachute,” was one of the first things that popped into my head.
If you want to spend a few hours with a totally new look and experience in Dubrovnik then this is certainly for you.
