Kvarner Bay DELUXE by Bike + Boat

from/to Omisalj

  • Countless islands in crystal clear water, deeply fissured cliffs, picturesque beaches and numerous small bays.

    That’s the Kvarner Bay in the northern Adriatic. Every island is different. Each has its own history. We spend a week discovering the landscape and people of this unique island world by bike independently and with the aid of knowledgeable tour guides.

    On a romantic motor yacht, our floating accommodation, we discover the charm of the Adriatic in our own special way.

     

    Tour profile:

    The bike 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 routes can reach an altitude of 760 to 1640 ft./ 200 to 500 meters. The daily routes, of 12 - 28 mi./ 20 - 45 km, cover hilly and mountainous terrain and can be completed without time constraints. You also come across some longer and rather steep climbs, where walking your bike is of course permitted. The tour guides inform you about the course of the tour in due time. You can also choose to skip a bike tour and spend a day sunbathing on the ship instead. The roads are mostly asphalted and there is little traffic outside of holiday periods. You can decide every day for yourself, whether you would like to cycle individually using the maps provided, or join the tour guides.

    Day 1: Omišalj – Cres

    Individual arrival in Omišalj, a nice little harbor village on the island of Krk. If you’re planning to arrive by car, we will organize a safe parking space for you. Check-in on the motor yacht between 2 and 2:30 pm. At approx. 3 pm the ship takes us to the island of Cres in about four hours. On Cres we take a walk through the Venetian old town in the evening.

    Day 2: Island of Cres and Losinj, approx. 23km

    In the morning our ship takes us to Martinšćica. From there we cycle on the east side of the island among pine, fig and laurel trees to Osor, an artist town, where we have lunch on the ship. There is time for a swim in the bay with its crystal clear water. In the afternoon we leave Osor on board the boat and navigate our way to the island of Lošinj. After a comfortable cruise and a refreshing swim stop the ship brings us safely into the large harbor of Mali Lošinj. The clear climate of this wellness retreat with its colorful captain’s houses and an abundance of cafes welcomes us for a relaxing evening, enabling us to unwind and recuperate.

    Day 3: Islands of Losinj and Molat, approx. 20 + 10 km

    We cycle along the seaside promenade to the south of Lošinj and visit the picturesque small harbor town of Veli Lošinj before we meet the ship for lunch. In the afternoon we cross over to the island of Molat where we can do another short cycling tour. Finally we stay overnight in a quiet harbor of Molat Island.

    Day 4: Island of Dugi Otok - Zadar, approx. 42 km

    During breakfast the ship leaves Molat and takes us past many small islands to the "spice island" of Dugi Otok. Our bike tour starts in the bay of Božava which is surrounded by pine woods, agaves and tamarisk trees. We ride on a road almost free of traffic. Our ride along the islands “Road in the Sky” takes us to Sali, where the boat awaits us for a sail to Zadar, which, for centuries, was the political, cultural and spiritual centre of Dalmatia. 3000 years of history have left their imprint on the character of this town and there are many things to be admired: the mighty fortified walls with their bastions, the loggia but also the early Romanesque St. Donatus Basilica. In the evening our tour guide takes us on an extensive walk through the lively city centre.

    Day 5: Island of Pag - Rab, approx. 20km

    After a long crossing in the morning we reach the island of Pag. In the harsh but delightful landscape of the island we come across many fig and olive trees. Over the centuries the inhabitants have built numerous stone walls for protection against the wind. Starting from Novalja we cycle on the narrow peninsula until we reach the sea from where the ship takes us to Rab. The island of Rab is one of the sunniest places in Europe. The town of Rab, the fortified capital of the island, was built in the Middle Ages on a wedge shaped headland and marks one of the highlights of the trip. The four famous bell towers are the symbol of the adorned beauty of the town. After dinner we can explore the narrow alleys with numerous cosy cafés.

    Day 6: Island of Rab, approx. 25km

    Get to know the charming island of Rab on a lovely ride around the island. At lunchtime the ship awaits us in the harbor directly in front of the old town of Rab. We cruise to Jablanac near the picturesque Zavratnica fjord. Later on the ship takes us over to the neighboring island of Krk where we spend the evening in the historical town of Krk.

    Day 7: Island of Krk, approx. 45km

    We cycle over the ridge of the island which is covered by fragrant macchia to a valley of vineyards and then onwards to the small museum town of Vrbnik in the northeast. The town built on a 50-meter-high cliff and surrounded by vineyards is the home of the famous white wine Zlahtina. Another peculiarity that Vrbnik has to offer is the second narrowest alley in the world. The way leads us across the island through old villages and rich vegetation to Omišalj. On our way we have a chance to swim in the bay of Soline. The last evening aboard takes place traditionally and includes the communal dinner and a last get-together in a cosy atmosphere with crew and tour guides.

    Day 8: Omišalj

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