    Pearls of Southern Dalmatia / Bike + Boat

    from/to Trogir with Kapetan Jure, San Snova, Romantica

    • Radler IstrienOur cycle-tours in Southern Dalmatia, which is the smallest and most sparsely populated region of Croatia, will take us past unique little towns and the beautiful island countryside. These tours will let us experience the beautiful island of Korčula with its picturesquely situated old township, and the beautiful lavender island of Hvar. Stroll around Hvar town with its mighty fortress and enjoy the calmness of the artists town Stari Grad.

      Our tour guide explains us the towns of Trogir, Hvar, Stari Grad and Korčula, which are almost all protected under UNESCO‘s World Heritage list. This tour is often offered parallel to the mountain bike cruise in Southern Dalmatia on the same boat. In this case one tour guide will cycle with the mountain bikers while the other will accompany the hybrid cyclists.

      Tour profile: Level 2-3

      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 mi. 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 traveled on outside the holiday 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 cycle tour. Each day you can either decide to cycle alone, using the information and maps provided, or join one of our tour guides or other participants.

      Day 1: Trogir - Split

      Individual arrival by car to Trogir or by plane to Split airport, which is about 5 km away from the harbor of Trogir. After check in on the motor yacht between 2 and 2:30 p.m. the first cruise starts about 3 p.m. from Trogir to Split. Seightseeing in Split. Overnight stay in Split.

      Day 2: Islands Hvar approx. 20 km

      In the morning cross over to the lovely natural harbour of Stari Grad on the island of Hvar. Our afternoon cycling tour on the Island of Hvar leads us through the quaint harbor towns of Jelsa and Vrboska. We start off through the vinyards on the famous ‘Stari Grad Plains’ and continue along a picturesque coastal road through the town of Vrboska, a.k.a. ‘small Venice’ to the harbor town of Jelsa. Afterwards we return to Stari Grad for our overnight stay.

      Day 3: Island of Hvar and Korčula, approx. 22 km

      Today we ride once across the length of the island.Today’s tour leads us along the almost traffic free pass road through nicely set small villages to the islands capital, Hvar, where we visit the magnificent Renaissance Square and enjoy the view from the Spanish Fortress, situated high above the city. After today’s tour the boat takes us to the Island of Korčula. Overnight stay in Vela Luka.

      Day 4: Island of Korčula - Makarska approx. 37 km

      Today we discover the island of Korčula by bicycle. The calmness and remoteness of the vast vegetation and cypress gardens have given the shape to the probably most beautiful Dalmatian island. Our cycle tour leads us via the village of Blato, like Rome build on seven hills, and on to the harbour of Prigradica. The boat awaits our arrival at lunch and we set off for Makarska. If the weather permits we will organise a swim stop in a nice bay. The evening can be enjoyed along the famous Makarska Riviera.

      Day 5: Makarska - Omis, approx. 44 km

      A short boats crossing during breakfast to Omis. Today you have the choice between taking part on a bike tour around the Cetina Canyon or participating on a rafting excursion down the Cetina River (not included in the tour price).  The bike tour takes you once around the outskirts of the canyon with great views over the river and back down towards the sea. The rafting group will be picked up from the boat by a bus and are taken up river to the starting point. From here we follow the river downstream in the rafts gaining a unique perspective of the canyon and its flora and fauna. Participants of the rafting trip are brought back to the boat in the bus after the activity.  In the afternoon we have time to explore Omis or to go for a swim at the nearby beach. The night is spent in Omis.

      Day 6: Islands Brac and - Solta, approx. 32 km

      Today we cruise to the island of Brač, which is famous for its radiant, precious limestone that was, among others, used for the White House in Washington or the Reichstag building in Berlin. From the picturesque harbor town of Pučišća, home to one of the most famous masonry schools in Croatia, our bike tour takes us to the neighboring town of Postira. From here, we board the boat and cruise to the island of Šolta. Here we can take part on a 4.5km hike with a visit to the local beekeeper Goran along the way. Goran has worked with bees his whole life and they are his true passion. He teaches of their importance in the world and allows all of his guests to try the delicious bee products that he makes. We spend the night in the harbor of Rogač on Šolta.

      Day 7: Solta Island - Trogir , approx. 20 km

      On Šolta we commence our last bike tour. Walled fields, numerous olive groves, locust bean and fig trees line the roads. The herbal scent of rosemary accompanies us along our tour across the island. After a round tour of the island, we return to the ship. We board and enjoy the last crossing to Trogir past the cliffs of the Čiovo peninsula. There is still plenty of time to visit the Old Town of Trogir, listed as a World Cultural Heritage site. The last evening aboard our ship is celebrated in traditional fashion. While enjoying the communal dinner in a celebrative atmosphere we will have the chance for a last get-together with our crew and tour guides.
