Croatia Bike Tours

Island Odyssey

Our private yacht—the five-cabin, four-masted gulet, Andjeo—comes complete with a crew of four and will serve as our luxurious base camp for our Dalmatian Coast Biking trip, a week of unforgettable island hopping through a largely undiscovered region. By day we ride spectacular coastal roads and cross-island routes, stroll about ancient towns, and board our vessel for afternoon voyages. From Dubrovnik to Korcula, Vis, the trendy port of Hvar, and on to Split, we encounter an unforgettable land in a fashion that few ever experience.

Signature Hotels: This trip uses 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.

Day by Day

Explore the medieval city of Dubrovnik, then onto Konavle Valley where we saddle up on our bikes. Enjoy cocktails onboard tonight as we watch the sun set.

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, then cruise to Korcula Town.

Starting in Korcula Town we can opt for an out and back ride to Racisce and/or take in Lumbarda. Enjoy discovering the walled  Korcula Town, the birthplace of Marco Polo.

Drive to Pupnat and set off to Grscica where our guletawaits. Take a slow afternoon cruise exploring the untouched coves and reefs of Korcula's west end.

Stunning coastal ride on the humble and little seen island of Vis. Ride past seemingly abandoned villages, olive groves and vineyards.

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.

Beginning on the island of Brac, take a morning ride through postcard-perfect towns and ending in Postira where we'll meet our gulet.

We cross the Brac Strait to Split where you may head straight to the airport or enjoy a longer stay.

Hotels

Andjeo, Split

Your unique accommodations are aboard a luxurious four-cabin gulet, the Andjeo. Sailing under the Croatian flag, this all-wooden vessel is nimble enough to venture into those coves and ports that larger ships are unable to access. The attentive service of its four-person crew allows one to relax and enjoy the journey. Simply put, there's no better way to travel.

Activity Level

Avid

The dramatic topography of the Dalmatian islands that make 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. For the most part the majority, if not all, of the riding is in the morning and early afternoon, in order to beat the high heat of the region.

Accolades

“This trip left us with so many memorable moments: sailing out of Hvar, cheering with a glass of Proseco 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!”
