A harbour town on the Adriatic coast in Split-Dalmatia County. Trogir is a beautiful town encased in 15th-Century stone walls. Narrow medieval streets wind through the enchanting town revealing hidden eateries and eye-catching galleries. A wide sea-side promenade snakes around the town offering views to the islands of Drvenik Mali and Drvenik Beli. Trogir is the perfect spot to start your Croatia island hopping and cycling tour.


Split is the second-largest city in Croatia and a great place to see Dalmatian life as it is really lived. The city was originally built around the famous Diocletian Palace where locals sought refuge centuries ago. Today it is the economic hub of the eastern Adriatic shoreline boasting a population of more than 300,000. On day one of your Croatia island hopping and cycling tour take a walking tour through Split and marvel at the famous palace of the Roman emperor Diocletian.

Cetina Canyon

The Cetina Canyon offers adrenaline-pumping activities to those willing and courageous enough to let go of their inhibitions. The clear, icy waters of the Cetina river rush through gorges surrounded by beautiful scenery at every turn. On day two of your Croatia island hopping and cycling tour, you’ll have the option of a four-hour rafting trip on the river Cetina.

The Island of Brač

The Island of Brač is famous for two reasons: radiant white stone from which Diocletian’s Palace in Split and the White House in Washington, DC are made, and Zlatni Rat, the long pebbly beach that adorns almost all Croatian tourism posters. On day three of your Croatia island hopping and cycling tour you’ll cycle through mulberry, fig and olive groves, and vineyards.

The Island of Korčula

Korčula Island is rich in vineyards, olive groves and small villages. Quiet coves and small sandy beaches dot the steep southern coast. Tradition is kept alive with age-old ceremonies, folk music and dances still being performed to tourists. We’ll explore the Island of Korčula on day 4 of your Croatia island hopping and cycling tour.

The islands of Vis and Hvar

Vis is Croatia’s most distant island and an oasis of untouched beauty. It produces some of the best olives, figs, almonds and lemons in Croatia. Hvar offers the perfect place for peaceful living. Many describe Hvar as the most beautiful island in the world, it offers an exceptionally mild climate and seductive smell of lavender fields and vineyards.

The Island of Solta                     

Solta is a popular getaway for Split locals escaping the summer heat. It is littered with small coves and rocky beaches. The island’s interior has several family-run farm eateries offering tastings of its olive oils, grappas and wines. It will be hard to forget day 7 of your Croatia island hopping and cycling tour where the smell of lavender and rosemary will accompany you during your ride of the island.
