    • We offer a discount of 20% on the cabin base price until the end of August. Valid for new bookings.

       

      On this tour, you will spend a week exploring the diverse region of southern Dalmatia. You will experience the island of Brac, Hvar, Korcula, Lastovo and Mljet by bike. The highlights on the tour are the cities of Dubrovnik and Split, which are also UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

      You can experience land, sea, culture and nature in the smallest of spaces. The tour is carried out in weekly change  in the reverse direction.

      Tour profile: Level 2-3

      Our cycle tours fit for both: hybrid and e-bikers. You have to decide beforehand, which bicycle you like to rent, if you decide to rent one. The cycle tours require a basic level of fitness from participants, which they should have acquired from steady cycling. The tours will take us up to a height of 200 to 500 m above sea-level. The day-tours from 12 to 31 mi. (20 to 50 km) will take us through hilly and mountainous terrain and will be completed without any time-constraints. Participants will also need to master long and steep climbs, during which they are, however, also permitted to push their bicycles. We traverse mostly asphalted roads, which are rarely frequented outside the holiday seasons. You are free to set aside a half or full day to swim or to spend time on board the boat, instead of taking a planned cycle tour.

      Day 1: Split (Embarkation)

      Individual journey to Split. Check-in on board starts between 2 and 2.30 pm at Split harbour. At about 4.30 pm, a guided city tour offers us the chance to see inside the former Palace of Emperor Diocletian and to learn about its transformation into the city which it has become. The boat will spend the night in Split offering you an opportunity to experience Split’s nightlife.

      Day 2: Split - Insel Brač: Pučišća – Bol – Island Hvar: Jelsa (aprx. 14 mi./23 km)

      We cruise to the island of Brač, famous for its radiant, precious limestone that was, among others, used for the White House in Washington and in the construction of the German Reichstag building in Berlin. Once we have arrived on Brač we cycle from the picturesque harbor town of Pučišća, known internationally for its stone masonry college, across the island to Bol. Close by lies the famous ‚Golden Horn‘, a popular Croatian beach famous for its unique shape. Keen swimmers can take a swim here before continuing on by boat to Jelsa on the island of Hvar. 

      Day 3: Hvar Island: Jelsa – Stari Grad - Hvar – Korčula Island: Vela Luka (aprx. 22 mi./35 km)

      Today’s cycling tour leads us to Stari Grad and later on to the opposite side of the Island of Hvar. After a short break our cycle tour leads us through lavender fields and small villages till we get to the islands capital. Make use of the time and go for a little stroll through the city of Hvar before boarding the boat. Standing on the magnificent Renaissance Square you can enjoy a view up to the Spanish fortress towering high above the city. Dinner on board and overnight stay in the sheltered bay of Vela Luka on the Island of Korčula, regarded as one of the most beautiful islands in Dalmatia.

      Day 4:Korčula Island: Vela Luka - Korčula town (aprx. 37.5 mi./60 km)

       

      Today’s cycle tour leads us across the charming island of Korčula all the way to Korčula city. A mild Mediterranean climate and a broad variety of different landscapes await us here. Take your time, and remember to take a break to enjoy the view over the deep blue sea and neighboring islands. The Picturesque town of Korčula competes with Venice for the honor of being the birthplace of the famous explorer Marco Polo. Use the evening to wander through the fishbone alleyways and soak up the vibes of this stylish town. A guided city tour will give you an overview of the city and its features.

      Day 5: Lastovo Island – Mljet Island (aprx. 17.5 mi./28 km)

      A morning crossing takes us to the beautiful Island of Lastovo. The island is one of the smaller inhabited islands in the Adriatic Sea. The Emperor Augustus appreciated the mild climate, and in Roman times it was even named “Augusta Insula” after him. The population of just over 800 still lives mainly from fishing in the waters rich in fish, agriculture and viticulture. Today’s cycle tour takes us around the beautiful island. The gold-coloured white wine “Marastina”, known even beyond Croatia’s borders, is grown here. We enjoy a late lunch on board while cruising towards our destination of Pomena on the Island of Mljet.

       

      Day 6: Mljet Island (aprx. 17.5 mi./28 km)

      From Pomena on Mljet we cycle across the green and forested island - known as the honey island. With 70 % of its landmass covered by woodland it is the most forested island in the Mediterranean region. Homer mentioned this lovely island in his epic poem “Odyssey”. He made it a home for the Nymph Calypso and the legendary Greek king Odysseus, who could not resist Calypso and stayed on Mljet for seven years. Our boat will wait for us in Sobra from where we will cruise to the island of Šipan in the afternoon.

      Day 7: Šipan Island – Dubrovnik (aprx. 7 mi./11 km)

      Šipan is the largest of the Elaphiti Islands. Accompanied by your tour guide a pleasant cycle trip takes us past villas with exotic gardens and through a fertile valley framed by a range of limestone hills. Returning to the boat we enjoy our last crossing after an adventurous week. After arrival in Dubrovnik there is plenty of time to explore the UNESCO world Heritage city and to take part on a guided city tour. A cheerful evening meal on board the boat gives you time to celebrate the success of the week with fellow travelers and tour guides.

       

      Day 8: Dubrovnik (Disembarkation)

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