      Visit unique little towns as you explore the beautiful island world of Croatia’s central and southern Dalmatia

      Experience the islands of Brač, Korčula, Vis and Šolta as well as the beautiful lavender island of Hvar. Stroll around Hvar town with its mighty fortress and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere in the artist’s town of Stari Grad. The UNESCO world heritage cities of Trogir and Split will add to the highlights on this tour and inspire with their incredible history. Try a variation of local specialties on your journey, especially the local wines also referred to locally as ‘gods drop’.

      For each day’s cycling, you will be accompanied by your tourguide. Normally you’ll set off each morning after a hearty breakfast, and will meet up with the boat for lunch. There may be another bike ride (or sailing) in the afternoon to a different harbour, where the boat will be moored for the night. After dinner on board as the sun sets, you are welcome to stroll through the historic town before finally settling down in your cabin to sleep – or stay on deck under a thousand stars…

      Global Cycling Adventures - Croatia biking tours

      We were planning to leave the Greece tour early, but the tour was so good that we decided to stay until the planned end. The guides and group were particularly good.

      The e-bikes certainly enhanced our enjoyment of the spectacular journey this tour offers. Totally would recommend e-bikes on this tour!

      Croatia bike and sail tour

      The Croatian Islands are truly beautiful, each one with its own unique feel. We were lucky, due to an itinerary change, to also see the island of Brac. We met a great group of people on the tour and shared so much fun & laughter with them.The ceaseless attention and hard work of our guides (Toni & Josh) and their support crew (Captain Pave & his team) ensured that the week was absolutely amazing!

      Croatia bike and sail tour

      Fellow cyclists were a great bunch, we were lucky that we all got on so well, a lot of laughs. The most clearest of water and to be able to swim off the back of the boat, fab.

      Chris Cantwell July 20, 2015

      The tour guides and all crew made the experience exceptional. We chose this tour so that I had the option of either the Ebike or ordinary and ended up deciding each day which I would choose depending on the climbs.

      We'll cycle off each morning after a hearty breakfast, and meet the boat at a different harbour later in the day. In the evenings, stroll through historic harbour towns. At the end of each day, settle in your cabin to sleep, or stay on deck under a thousand stars. The tour offers a moderate cycling challenge as the islands are hilly (with some steep sections). From each harbour you climb to approximately 200-500m above sea level and then continue on rolling terrain along the island. Although daily distances range from 20–50 km, some of the hills are challenging. If you have not trained for hills you should hire an e-bike. Some departures will have a mixture of road cyclists and mountainbikers on the boat, in which case there will be both a cycling guide plus a mountain bike guide on board. The tour is conducted in both English & German.

      DAY 1

      Arrival Day: Trogir to Island of Šolta

      No cycling

      Welcome to Trogir, a city with 2300 years of history! With a number of palaces, churches, towers and fortresses, it deserves the nickname ‘the stone beauty’. Please make your own way to the harbour of Trogir (5km from Split airport) where you can check-in to your motor yacht between 2pm-2.30pm. At around 3pm a short cruise takes us to the island of Šolta where we'll stay tonight in a quiet harbour.

      Island of Vis

      Cycling: 31 km

      During breakfast we'll cruise to the Island of Vis, the furthermost inhabited island from mainland Croatia. A Greek colony called Issa inhabited the island 2,300 years ago. Due to its strategic location it was a military zone until 1995 and prohibited for foreign tourists. Today we have the opportunity to explore this lovely island by bike. We have plenty of time to enjoy the island as we'll spend the night here.

Standing on the magnificent Renaissance Square there's a great view up to the Spanish fortress towering high above the city. Today's bike tour takes us from the city of Hvar through small villages and lavender fields to Stari Grad on the opposite side of the island. The descent to Stari Grad offers breathtaking views. After a lunch break we continue on our bikes through the green planes of the island to the seaside town of Jelsa. We'll stop for coffee and ice cream before continuing our round trip back to Stari Grad where we spend the night.

At first we cycle inland through small villages and past local architectural relics before hugging the coast where we have spectacular views across the channel to the mainland. On arrival in Postira there are many ways to spend the rest of the afternoon. The night is spent in the quiet harbor of Postira.

The rafting group will be picked up from the boat by a bus and taken to Omiš for the excursion. The trip offers a unique perspective of the canyon and its flora and fauna. Those on the cycling option will also get an extensive swim break at a local beach. In the afternoon we can all explore the bustling city of Split again. Overnight stay in Split.

He teaches about the importance of bees and allows his guests to try the delicious bee products. We cycle past walled fields, numerous olive groves, locust bean and fig trees which line the roads. The scent of rosemary accompanies us around the island. After our ride, we return to the ship for our last cruise, past the cliffs of Čiovo Island and back to Trogir. Once we arrive, there will be plenty of time to visit the Old Town of Trogir, listed as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site.
