National Parks of Dalmatia by Bike + Boat DELUXE

Waterfall and Treasure

  • On this one week tour our proud boat Princeza Diana is your comfortable home. Roomy and elegantly designed cabins include bathrooms with separate shower cubicles, and a wide sundeck with plenty of space to relax on as well as a spacious, stylish designed salon invite you to enjoy the cruise.

    With our deluxe boat Princeza Diana you can experience on this trip the greenest part of Croatia for one week: Not only the famous national parks of Dalmatia like Krka and Kornati or the nature park of Telašćica are part of this wonderful tour but also the medieval old towns of Šibenik, Zadar and Trogir. We also visit Dugi Otok – probably the most beautiful Middle-Dalmatian Island.

     

    Tour profile:

    The bicycle tours require a basic level of fitness from participants, which they should have acquired from steady cycling. The cycling tours fit in equal measure to cyclists with hybrid bikes or E-bikes. If a rental bike is used, you are kindly requested to decide either on a hybrid bike or an E-bike before commencement of travel. The tours take you up to a height of between 200 and 500 m above sea-level. The daily tours from 15 to 55 km lead you through hilly and mountainous terrain and will be completed without any time-constraints. Participants also need to master long and steep climbs- Streets are mostly asphalted and less traffic occurs during the off seasons. You are free to set aside a half or full day to swim or spend on board the boat, instead of taking a planned bicycle-tour. We will traverse mostly asphalted roads, which are rarely traveled on outside the holiday seasons. Each day you can either decide to bike alone, using the information and maps provided, or join the tour guides.

    Day 1: Trogir (Embarkation) - Rogoznica

    Individual arrival by car to Trogir or by plane to Split airport, which is about 3 mi./ 5 km away from the harbour of Trogir. After the check in on the motor yacht (between 2 and 2.30 pm) we leave Trogir around 3 pm. During the crossing to Rogoznica the fresh sea breeze can be enjoyed. Later in the afternoon there is time to adjust the bicycles.

    Day 2: Rogoznica – Vodice – Slanica – Nature Park Telašćica, approx. 27 km

    In the morning the boat takes us to Vodice. We go for our first cycle tour starting at the popular resort and soon we cross the bridge to the island of Murter. In Slanica, in the Northwest of the island the boat awaits us for the cross over to the island of Dugi Otok. On our way we pass the National Park Kornati - an archipelago in crystal clear water which is known for its rich underwater world. Our destination is the deeply incised Telašćica Bay. In the local nature park the Mir salt lake is situated. At the end of the day we take a short hike to the impressive cliffs before taking a short crossing by boat to the small seaside village of Sali for the night.

    Day 3: Islands of Dugi Otok and Molat, approx. 48 km + 19 km

    From the park we cycle across the almost traffic-free island of Dugi Otok until we finally reach the pine forest, agave and tamarisk bay of Božava. From there the boat takes us to the flower island of Molat. We explore the island on a short cycle tour. Today’s night is spent in the quiet port of the island.

    Day 4: Islands of Ugljan and Pašman and Zadar, approx. 20 - 40 km

    During breakfast the boat takes you on a crossing to Preko on the island of Ugljan. From here your tour will take you to Tkon on the island of Pasman. There is plenty of time to explore the two islands of Pasman and Ugljan, married recently by a bridge, on your bikes. The tour follows the eastern coastline of the islands giving you a great view across the channel to the mainland. After a round tour you will meet the ship again in Preko. A short crossing takes you to Zadar, the century old political, cultural and intellectual capital of Dalmatia. Your tour guide will take you for an informative stroll through the bustling streets of the old town centre, characterized by 3000 years of history.

    Day 5: Biograd – Vodice – Skradin, approx. 55 km

    The morning begins with a passage by boat to the city of Biograd followed by a bike tour around the Vraner Lake. Your goal, the swimming destination of Vodice. The Vraner Lake is the largest fresh water reservoir in Dalmatia and offers many migratory birds an opportunity to rest their wings. The ship awaits you in Vodice for lunch. An afternoon crossing by boat brings you closer to the Krka waterfalls which you will have time to explore the following day in the company of your tour guide.

    Day 6: Krka-Waterfalls – Šibenik – Island of Zlarin , approx. 10 km

    After breakfast it is time to discover the unique naturally formed waterfalls of the national park of the Krka-Canyon. Afterwards the boat will take you to Šibenik out of the Krka river mouth and into the Adriatic. Here the Cathedral of St. Jacob is under UNESCO-World-Heritage protection and is regarded as the most magnificent sacral buildings on the Adriatic coast. The old town of Šibenik is also worth a visit before you cross over to the coral island of Zlarin in the afternoon.

    Day 7: Primošten - Trogir, approx. 37 km

    In the morning we cruise to Primošten. From here we cycle through the hinterland passing small villages, all the way to Trogir. Many magical views of the town and the island of Čiovo invite for short breaks and taking pictures.
