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
Here, the road less travelled means rolling island roads, hushed inlets, and secluded beaches. With our glorious private yacht as a floating hotel, we ride spectacular coastal roads. Others hop from hotel to hotel, but we only unpack once.
*This trip runs in alternating directions between Split and Dubrovnik, depending on your departure date. Please see itinerary or speak to your Travel Advisor for details.

Day by Day
We meet in Split with our local guide for a wander through the old town. Later, we head to the hills for a warm-up ride along the Cetina River Valley before boarding our yacht to set sail toward Brac.
After a short cruise to Postira, we ride across the northern end of Brac while spectacular sea-view stretches accompany our journey. After an afternoon swim, we head to Hvar for dinner.
Pedal out of Hvar along a limestone ridge before descending into Jelsa for an ice cream break. We drive back to Hvar Town in time for some fresh fish and a relaxing afternoon on board.
Cycle to Komiza from Vis—passing by vineyards and cliffs on a beautiful route hugging the shore. This afternoon, we set sail for Korcula, with forays around reefs and hidden coves along the way.
Ride off the yacht to the interior of Korcula, following a stretch of coastal road that leads to the heart of Croatian wine production for a tasting of the local varietals.
We hop on our bikes for a ride from Lumbarda to Racisce, pausing for a swim at a deserted beach. We arrive in Korcula Town for some time at leisure before lunch on board the yacht.
Starting in Polace in the Mljet National Park, we pedal the length of the island, tackling the route's forested dips and rolls. Later, we cruise to a marvellous cove for one last Adriatic swim.
Enjoy breakfast as the boat steams past the Elaphiti Islands to the harbour of Gurz where we disembark. From here, a shuttle will take you to Dubrovnik's city centre for further exploration. So long!
From one blissful bay to the next.
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.
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
