Cycling Croatia’s Islands by Bike and Boat

Back in 2020! After much demand we’ve brought this popular tour back.  Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast and its islands have been a favorite seaside destination among Europeans for over a century. Join us as we explore this spectacular limestone coastline by bicycle AND boat! Arrive early to explore Split, where you’ll see Diocletian’s 3rd century palace (still inhabited by descendants of the Romans who settled this area.). We’ll board our luxury gulet (traditional Mediterranean wooden sailboat) in Split and head off on an aquatic adventure, sleeping on board the ship. On our tour, we bicycle three of the Mediterranean’s most picturesque and well-known islands -Brač, Hvar and Korčula – and also visit smaller, more out of the way islands like Vis and Solta. If you decide you want a break from the bike there will be ample opportunities to explore tiny fishing villages, swim in the sea or even stand up paddle boarding from our boat.
