    National Parks of Dalmatia by Bike + Boat DELUXE

    Waterfall and Treasure

    • On this one week tour our proud boats Princeza Diana and Melody 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 and first class boat Melody 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: Level 2

      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 25 to 50 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.
