      Guarded by the towering Velebit mountain range in the east and hugged by the Istria Peninsula in the northwest lie the Kvarner Bay islands. Quiet coves of crystal clear water surround green hills and rocky landscapes which give way to small harbour towns rich in history and culture.

      Discover the charm of the Adriatic Sea by bike and boat on board a deluxe motor yacht where each night you will stay in an ensuite cabin with air conditioning.

      The day begins with a well-rounded breakfast leaving you fit to explore the diversity of the Kvarner bay islands on a guided bike tour. Be it the medieval city of Rab, the car-free road in the sky on Dugi Otok or the contemplative life of the dwellers on the flower island of Molat, each day brings with it new discoveries. Evenings are mostly spent in picturesque harbour towns with winding alleyways where a great range of bars and cafes can offer a relaxing evening.

      Note: dates & prices are for the e-bike tour (gravel bikes available for strong cyclists) on board a DELUXE yacht .
      Ask us for dates & prices if you prefer a tour with hybrid bikes (e-bike option available) on board a ‘STANDARD’ boat .

      I enjoyed the Croatia bike and sail tour very much - making new friends, learning to e-bike and the beautiful warm clear azure blue sea are great memories of the trip for me.

      Croatia Biking Tour

      This is a thank you and a huge recommendation to anyone interested in seeing Croatia the way we did with Global Adventure Guide. Everything about our trip in September was perfect, the boat, the guides, the food, the riding and Croatia itself was awesome. Our global adventure was brilliant!!

      DAY 4

      The island of Duji Otok

      Cycling: 48 km

      During breakfast on board, the boat will cruise past many small islands to the ‘spice island’ of Dugi Otok. Today’s ride will be along a road almost free of traffic and will start in the bay of Božava which is surrounded by pine, agave and tamarisk trees. Firstly we ride to the northernmost point of the island where the light house of Veli Rat (built in 1849) stands proudly. Then we continue along the island ridge with beautiful panoramic views all the way to the bay of Savar. Here the boat awaits us for a cruise to Zadar. This city has been the political, cultural and spiritual centre of Dalmatia for centuries. Over 3000 years of history have left their imprint on the character of this town and there are many things to be admired: the mighty fortified walls with their bastions, the loggia and the early Romanesque St. Donatus Basilica. In the evening our tour guide takes us on an extensive walk through the lively city centre.

      DAY 5

      The islands of Pag and Rab

      Cycling: 20 km

      After a morning cruise, we reach the island of Pag, with it’s harsh but delightful landscape boasting many fig and olive trees. Over the centuries the inhabitants have built numerous stonewalls for protection against the wind. Starting from Mandre, we cycle along the narrow peninsula until we reach the sea, where the boat will be waiting to take us to the island of Rab, one of the sunniest places in Europe. The town of Rab, the fortified capital of the island, was built in the middle ages on a wedge-shaped headland, and marks one of the highlights of the trip. The four famous bell towers are the symbol of the adorned beauty of the town. After dinner we can explore the narrow alleys with numerous cosy bars and cafés.

The town, built on a 50m high cliff and surrounded by vineyards, is the home of the famous white wine, Žlahtina. Another peculiarity that Vrbnik has to offer, is it has the narrowest alley in the world. The trail takes us across the island through old villages and rich vegetation to Omišalj, where Rijeka will be within view.
