    Family Cruise in Southern Dalmatia by Bike + Boat

    from/to Trogir with San Snova

    • This Multi-Adventure Cruise in South Dalmatia is particularly well-suited for families. It combines the popular bathing cruise concept of the "Blue Tour" with a variety of activities. Spend a week on a charming motor vessel that takes you from island to island, sparing you the nuisance of packing suitcases and searching for accommodations. Along with overnights in ports, we also spend some nights in quiet bays.

      Decide each day new whether you would like to go on a bike trip or on a hiking tour, go rafting or rather stroll leisurely through the unique small harbor towns of the Adriatic - or simply spend the day relaxing on board. This is indeed a pleasant way of exploring southern Dalmatia, possibly Croatia’s most attractive landscape.

      Tour profile: Level 1

      The cycle tours we offer here take place under the expert guidance of your tour guide, who is familiar with the terrain. The bicycle tours do not require particular physical fitness. The walks and short hikes follow good paths, which are in part even asphalted and are also not at all demanding. Should some activities require greater fitness, your tour guide will point this out before hand.

      Day 1: Trogir (Embarkation) – Island of Vis

      Individual arrival by car to Trogir or by plane to Split airport, which is about 5 km/3 mi. away from the harbour of Trogir. After check in on the motor yacht (from 2:30 p.m.) the first short cruise starts around 3 p.m. from Trogir to the Island of Šolta. On the way we have the opportunity to take a refreshing swim from the boat. The first night is spent on the Island of Vis.

      Day 2: Islands of Vis and Korčula (aprx. 10km / 6 mi. by bike)

      In the morning we can take part on an adventurous bike tour which takes us past the old military tunnels which crisscross the island, on our way to the fortress of St. George which played a significant role in the seafaring history of the island. Once back at the boat we cruise towards the harbor of Vela Luka on the island of Korčula, stopping for a swim break from the boat on the way. Once in Vela Luka we can visit a new installation in the local museum which uses holograms and interactive displays to tell of the ice age period. The night is spent in Vela Luka.

      Day 3: Island of Hvar

      We go on a morning crossing to Hvar Island with its island capital Hvar town. After arrival we take a city tour across the large Renaissance Square which is surrounded by the cathedral and many late gothic palaces. We are able to hike to the Spanish fortress that towers above the town. From here we have a fabulous view onto the city and the surrounding islands. With lunch on board, we cast off from Hvar and anchor in the Pakleni Islands for a lengthy swim stop. In the afternoon we lift the anchor and cruise to the city of Stari Grad on the island of Hvar, where we will spend the night.

      Day 4 Island of Hvar and Brač (13km / 8mi. OR 25km / 15mi. by bike)

      In the morning we cruise to the famous ‘Golden Horn’ Beach in Bol on the island of Brač where the ship lowers its anchor for the morning. Here we can choose between a variety of activities both in the water and on land (not included in the tour price) or just enjoy the summer morning swimming and chilling on deck. During lunch on board, we cruise to the town of Jelsa on the island of Hvar where we can enjoy a bike tour along the beautiful seafront promenade through Vrboska, past the UNESCO Stari Grad Plains. Decide for yourself if you wish to do a longer or shorter version of the cycle tour. Enjoy the evening on board with a captains dinner and celebrate a successful day!

      Day 5: Islands Brač (aprx. 1.5h on foot)

      The morning is spent on board enjoying a longer cruise to Lovrečina Bay on the island of Brač. Once we have arrived, big and small islandhoppers are invited to a game of beach Olympics in the bay. In the afternoon a 1.5 hour hike along the coast brings us to Postira. Here the sunset can be enjoyed on one of the many cafes or bars.

       

      Day 6:Cetina Canyon – Omiš - Split

      During breakfast the boat brings us to Omiš, where we have the choice to either go rafting through the canyon (not included in the tour price) or to take a hike up to the pirate fortress high above the city. In the afternoon the boat brings us to the bustling city of Split. We enjoy an exciting tour through the UNESCO old town, built within the palace walls of the roman Emperor Diocletian. The night is spent in Split. 

      Day 7: Island of Šolta – Trogir (aprx. 8km / 5mi. by bike)

      In the first half of the day we can cycle on the island of Šolta to Goran, a local beekeeper to participate in an interactive workshop on bees, their purpose, products and the life of a beekeeper. Goran is an expert in capturing the fascination of young and old with the enthusiasm he has for the bees which he keeps. We return to Rogač where the boat waits. Lunch will be enjoyed on board during the last crossing by boat for the week as the captain charters his course back to Trogir. Along the way the anchor is droped for an enjoyable dip in the Adria directly from the boat. In the afternoon we enjoy Trogir by taking a walk through the UNESCO protected old town. Traditionally the last evening before disembarkation is spent cheerfully with guests, crew and guides.

      Day 8: Trogir (Disembarkation)

      After breakfast disembarkation until 9 am and individual trip home or extended stay in Croatia.

    • Welcome on board the premiumship SAN SNOVA !

      The MS San Snova is a wooden motor-sailer that was launched in spring 2009 and made exclusively for Islandhopping cruises. The ship, constructed entirely of oak, was built in three years by the Scherka family in their own carpentry workshop as family project. The ship, 100 ft./31 m long and 26 ft./8 m wide, meets the highest expectations in regard to comfort, elegance and style, combining romantic seafaring with modernity and functionalism. Young captain Tonci prides himself in the meticulous appearance of the ship and the cordiality on board.

      The roomy sun deck offers comfortable mats for relaxing and lounge chairs are found on the afterdeck. So let yourself be pampered and enjoy the “Dream of Dreams” (San Snova), as the Scherka family named their ship!


      CABINS

      The San Snova has five double cabins (with double beds 6,5 ft./200 cm x 5,2 ft./160 cm) and five triple cabins above deck (with double beds 6,5 ft./200 cm x 5,2 ft./160 cm and single bunk beds 6,5 ft./200 cm x 2,6 ft./80 cm) as well as four spacious triple cabins below deck. Two of these triple cabins can also be used as quadruple cabins by adding a camp bed.

      iRiva tour Aktiv & Cappuccino Dalmatian Islands

      This was NOT a Level 1 tour. Croatia is very hilly. Tour guide was excellent and happened to have an extra e-bike available. Otherwise I wouldn’t have been able to complete the rides. There were no travel documents given. We rode as a group.
