from/to Trogir

Tourmap

Route

Tour profile: Level 2-3

The cycling stages require the participant to have a good basic condition, which should be acquired as a regular cyclist. The tours go up to an altitude between 400 and 700 meters. The daily stages of 30 - 50 km lead through hilly and mountainous terrain and are cycled without time pressure. There are also steeper or longer climbs, but pushing is allowed. The roads are mostly asphalted and not very busy outside the vacation season. Instead of a bike tour, a half or full day can also be spent on the ship.

Day 1: Trogir – Island Solta

Individual arrival by car to Trogir or by plane to Split Airport, located about 3.5 mi./6 km away from the harbour of Trogir. After checking in on the motor yacht between 2 and 2:30 pm, the first cruise from Trogir to the island of Šolta begins at 3 pm. The first night is spent in a quiet harbour on the island of Solta with the opportunity to take a swim after a day of travel.

Day 2: Island Vis, approx. 31 km

This morning we enjoy a cruise during breakfast to the Island of Vis. Vis is the furthermost inhabited island from mainland Croatia. A Greek colony called Issa inhabited the island 2,300 years ago. Due to its strategic location it was a military zone until 1995 and prohibited for foreign tourists. Today we have the opportunity to explore the lovely island by bicycle. We have plenty of time to enjoy the island and spend the night here.

Day 3: Island Korčula, approx. 30 km

In the morning we leave the island of Vis by boat and navigate to the harbor town of Vela Luka on the Island of Korčula. Along the way we throw the anchor for a refreshing swim stop. Korčula is regarded as one of the most scenic islands in the Adriatic, abundant in scenic impressions and quaint villages nestled in the green. Once we arrive in Vela Luka we can enjoy a round tour from Vela Luka to the village of Blato and back again. The night is spent in Vela Luka.

Day 4: Island Hvar: Hvar Town – Stari Grad – Jelsa – Stari Grad, approx. 22 + 20 km

The day starts with a relaxing cruise to Hvar town on Hvar Island. Make use of the time before the cycle tour starts and go for a little stroll through the city. Standing on the magnificent Renaissance Square you can enjoy a view up to the Spanish fortress towering high above the city. Today’s bike tour takes us from the city of Hvar through small villages and lavender fields to Stari Grad on the opposite side of the island. The descent to Stari Grad offers breathtaking views. After a lunch break we continue start off on a second cycling tour through the green planes of the island to the seaside town of Jelsa. After a break for coffee and ice cream, we continue the round trip back to Stari Grad where we spend the night.

Day 5: Island Brač Milna – Postira approx. 29 km

In the morning 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 start our bike tour from Milna to the picturesque harbor town of Postira. At first we cycle inland through small villages and past local architectural relics before hugging the coast with spectacular views across the channel to the mainland. On arrival in Postira there are many ways in which to enjoy the rest of the afternoon. The night is spent in the quiet harbor of Postira.

Day 6: Split (approx. 17 km) or Rafting on Cetina Canyon

During breakfast the boat brings us to the city of Split. The old town of Split, built adjoining the famous palace of the Roman Caesar Diocletian, is a UNESCO world heritage site. Today we have the choice either to take a bus transfer to go rafting through the Cetina Canyon (not included in the tour price) or to explore the wonderful Marjan forest Park in Split by bike. The rafting group will be picked up from the boat by a bus and are taken to Omiš for the excursion. From here they will 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. Cyclist will enjoy a short but scenic bike tour through the green heart of Splits accompanied by an extensive swim break at a local beach. In the afternoon we can explore the bustling city of Split again together as one group. Overnight stay in Split.

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

In the morning, we once more cruise to the island of Šolta, where there will be the opportunity to take part in a bike ride to the local beekeeper Goran. Goran has a true passion for bees and has worked with them his whole life. He teaches about the importance of bees allows all his guests to try the delicious bee products. We cycle past walled fields, numerous olive groves, locust bean, and fig trees which line the roads. The scent of rosemary accompanies us along our tour around the island. After our bike ride, we return to the ship to enjoy our last crossing, past the cliffs of Čiovo Island and back to Trogir. Once we arrive, there will be plenty of time to visit the Old Town of Trogir, listed as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site. The last evening aboard is celebrated in traditional fashion in the company of our fellow travellers and guides.

Day 8: Trogir (Disembarkation)

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

    Ship

    Welcome aboard the SAN SNOVA!

    Facilities

    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. The fittings of the cabins as well as the saloon and the outside area are of superior quality with many carefully created details.
