Getting around in Croatia

by Andrea Segura - Wednesday, March 15, 2017

As you are planning your bicycle trip and beyond, you will certainly wonder how to best get around. We’re here to help and have put together some general information and tips for you. You will find tour-specific travel information in your Getting to and Away (GTA), which was emailed to you with your reservation confirmation. Note that any fares and timing mentioned are estimates. 

We also recommend Rome2Rio, which is an excellent route and travel planning resource.

Split

Zračna Luka Split – Split Airport (SPU)

You can fly into this airport from most major airports in Europe via Zagreb. Direct flights from London, Paris, Munich, Frankfurt, and Rome with regular airlines are possible, but they do not fly daily. You can also look into smaller low cost companies flying from the following locations: Bratislava, Cologne, Stuttgart, Berlin, London, and Oslo, about 2-3 times a week.

This airport is located about 17 miles west of Split and about 7 miles east of Trogir. The airport has a restaurant, shops, a bank where money can be exchanged, a post office, and a market with souvenirs and other items. We recommend getting to and from the airport by bus or by taxi.
