Explore one of the most beautiful and diverse parts of Croatia from two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Split and Trogir to the stunningly picturesque islands of Korcula, Hvar, Brac and Solta. Enjoy cycling to lovely beaches, traditional villages and fishing harbours with plenty of opportunities for a refreshing swim in the dazzling Adriatic.
Arrive at Split. Transfer to the harbour of Trogir where you will board your boat and be equipped with your bicycle. Your holiday will then start as the boat cruises to Brac Island (3pm departure), staying overnight in the calm harbour of Milna.
Solta and Hvar: 12.5 miles (20km) and 12.5 miles (20km). After crossing from Brac to Stomorska on the island of Solta, the first cycle of your holiday will begin. The route will take you through many olive groves with fig trees lining the roads and the scent of lavender and rosemary in the air as you travel around the island. There will be the chance to stop to visit a local beekeeper and taste the local honey before returning to the boat for the short trip to the beautiful natural harbour of Stari Grad on Hvar. In the afternoon, you will cycle through the island of Hvar to the quaint harbours of Jelsa and Vrboska before returning to cultured Stari Grad, a mecca for artists.
Hvar and Korcula: 14 miles (22km). Today’s tour travels through the stunning island of Hvar to the capital, Hvar Town, where you will visit the magnificent Renaissance Square and enjoy the view from the Spanish Fortress. After you have enjoyed the sights of Hvar, the boat heads to the island of Korcula where you will stay overnight in Vela Luka.
Korcula: 38 miles (62km). A longer cycle today gives you the chance to explore the island of Korcula one of the most beautiful of the Dalmatian islands, rich in vineyards, cypress gardens and traditional villages. The tour leads you to the village of Blato, Pupnat bay and on to Korcula town, allowing time to explore the old town’s narrow “fishbone” alleys and to sample some of the best Croatian white wines.
Brac: 22 miles (35 km). The boat will cruise to the island of Brac, famous for its shining white marble used for the Diocletian’s Palace in Split and the White House in Washington DC. In the afternoon, you will have the chance to cycle from Sumartin to the lovely fishing village of Povlja or the picturesque town of Pucisca, where you will stay for the night.
Omis to Split: 15 miles (25km) or 27 miles (44km). This morning you will cruise to Omis on the mainland, where you will then cycle through the Cetina River Valley. After around 11 miles (18km), you will have the choice to take part in a 4-hour rafting tour on the river (payable locally) followed by a 4 mile (7km) cycle back to the boat or to extend your cycling to 27 miles (44km) through the mainland’s varied landscapes back toward Omis and its pirate castles. In the afternoon, your ship will take you to Split where you will spend the night. Split’s old town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, famous for the Palace of Roman Caesar Diocletian.
Split to Marjan: 9 miles (15km). After a delicious breakfast, your final day’s cycling will take you to Mount Marjan, a popular place which offers fantastic views of the city and surrounding islands. Afterwards, you will travel to Trogir past the Ciovo Peninsula’s cliffs, allowing plenty of time to visit Trogir’s old town before a final evening’s dinner.
We say “Zbogom” before transferring you directly to Split.
