The right number of like-minded travellers to make new friends.
Your dates. Your group. Our expertly-designed itinerary.
Tailored to your interests, a bespoke travel experience.
Combines the hallmarks of any B&R itinerary (excellent hotels and beautiful routes) with the freedom of pacing each day exactly the way you like.
Throughout the day, a knowledgeable local guide provides insider access and expert tips. At night, you can explore and dine on your own.
Our B&R guides are with you throughout, anticipating needs, translating languages, providing advice and—above all—facilitating fun.
We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.
These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.
“I can’t say I really ‘work out,’ but I’m in good shape and am relatively active.”
“I enjoy a good walk or ride, and feel comfortable while on the move.”
“I get moving at least once a week, and don’t mind a little sweat.”
“I get moving a few times per week and enjoy some exertion.”
“I want to feel invigorated each day and going hard is how I like to do that.”
Island hopping by yacht & bike
Our private yacht comes complete with a lively crew and will serve as a luxurious base camp for our Dalmatian Coast Biking trip, a week of unforgettable island hopping through a largely undiscovered region of Croatia. By day we ride spectacular coastal roads and cross-island routes, stroll about ancient towns and board our vessel for afternoon voyages. In cities like Dubrovnik, Korcula, Vis, the trendy port of Hvar, and Split, we encounter an unforgettable land in a fashion that few ever experience.
*This trip runs in alternating directions between Split and Dubrovnik, please be aware of this when selecting your itinerary. Also note, the July 7th departure accommodation is on-board the fabulous Aurum yacht rather than the Luna.

Day by Day
Explore the medieval city of Split before an afternoon ride along the Cetina River Valley, admiring the hilltop churches presiding over the woodlands. Enjoy cocktails onboard tonight as we watch the sunset.
Beginning on the island of Brac, take a morning ride through postcard-perfect towns and ending in Postira where we'll meet our yacht.
The stylish port of Hvar Town awaits exploration today. Ride along a stunning ridge road before descending into the town of Stari Grad for a relaxing afternoon.
Stunning coastal ride on the humble and little-seen island of Vis. Ride past seemingly abandoned villages, olive groves and vineyards.
Arriving on Korcula Island, we hop on our bikes and ride surrounded by olive groves and vineyards until reaching Korcula town. Enjoy discovering the walled Korcula Town, tonight enjoy local cuisine and typical Croatian dishes in the surrounding mountains.
Continue exploring Korcula town, stroll and shop the town’s laneways, or pull up a chair and people-watch. In the afternoon we take a tour with our local guide through Korcula’s network of narrow, cobbled streets dating to the 8th century.
Explore the quiet roads of the island of Mljet, now largely a National Park. Along the way stop to admire the island of St Mary, complete with twelfth-century Benedictine Church. Dinner tonight will be a fresh fish at a local konoba (tavern) in true Dalmatian style.
We breakfast this morning as the boat steams past the Elaphiti Islands, then disembark at the new harbour of Gruz. We highly
recommend at least another night in Dubrovnik to gain appreciation of this splendid UNESCO site.

The Luna is owned by a seafaring Croatian family. The yacht was completed in 2008 and is the ideal vessel for small groups. Each of the 8 spacious cabins has an en suite, and there is a sauna on board, and a Jacuzzi on the sundeck. The vessel is fully air conditioned and has a swim platform with two deck showers. Fully equipped with all the latest navigational and safety technology, the vessel is handled by a professional crew of six.
Aurum, Split (July 7th Departure)
The Aurum is a luxury vessel with six fully equipped double cabins, all featuring ensuites. There is plenty of space to spend your days lounging on the sundecks or relaxing in the panoramic salon. Watch the Adriatic sunsets from the boat’s stern as you enjoy dinner at the elegant above board dining able.
This trip left us with so many memorable moments: sailing out of Hvar, cheering with a glass of Prosecco to our gorgeous cycling routes, laughing with the captain's jokes, dancing on the deck after dinner, following the sun setting on the horizon. We’ll never forget it!— Isabelle Peters
While there is some lovely level pedaling along the seashore and through tranquil vineyards and olive groves, there are also plenty of long, gradual climbs on hairpin switchbacks, followed by thrilling miles-long downhills. But the pace is mellow, and often electric bikes can be arranged to make the climbs easier.San Francisco Chronicle
We never wanted to be the biggest travel company in the world, just the best.
— George Butterfield
The dramatic topography of the Dalmatian Islands that makes them spectacular to look at also makes them hilly to bike. With the exception of the first day, every day has at least one climb, and most days have several. We have sought to limit the daily distances as much as possible, with long options for the more avid riders. The majority of the riding is in the morning and early afternoon, in order to beat the high heat of the region.
“I ride a couple times a week and enjoy tackling a good climb or a steady incline.”
Consistently rolling countryside, with repeated climbs and longer options available.Read more on our Activity Levels
