Bike through Dalmatian coast


Day 1. SPLIT

Arrival transfer to our hotel in Split. Overnight Split.


After breakfast, we will start our bike tour next to the famous green market towards the famous Split promenade. Here, you will learn about the Diocletian palace and 1700 years of history while cycling through the easy everyday life in the town center. Afterward, the route will take us through more recent history. The second part of the Split bike tour is taking us to the relaxing energy of Marjan hill. We will ride through the chilling shadow of the pine tree forest, enjoying the view of the marina, beaches, islands, and hills surrounding the town. You will enjoy the view of the town from Telegrin (the top of the 178 meters high Marjan hill) and Vidilica. Without a doubt, these two spots offer the best view of the old town of Split and its surroundings. The final part of the tour takes you through an old neighborhood called “Varos”. This used to be the settlement of poor fishermen and farmers, who lived in tiny stone houses with shared walls or only narrow streets in between. Here, you will be able to feel the real charm of Mediterranean living. Finally, will finish the tour by cycling back to the busy town center.


Today we start with catamaran transfer to Island Hvar. After checking into our hotel we will have transfer to Stari Grad where our bike tour starts. Driving from Stari Grad through the Stari Grad Plain and its surrounding villages in the central part of Hvar Island to Vrboska. Vrboska is locally known as Little Venice. Stari Grad Plain is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, famous for its olives, from which world-famous oils are produced. After driving along the coast to Jelsa, we will stop for a tasting with top quality wine and olive oil. On the way back, we will stop at the family estate. You will enjoy a traditional lunch of organic food and wine locally produced. After a short drive we are back in Stari grad, and the tour ends with a transfer back to hotel.


After breakfast we will catch the morning catamaran to Korčula. After settling in the hotel, we will enjoy an afternoon bike tour and a visit to Lumbarda. Start cycling towards Lumbarda on a combination of asphalt, gravel and gravel roads that pass through fields and villages with which opens up to the view towards Mount St. Elijah and the magical old vineyards. We will cycle through the eastern side of the island and through the beautiful landscape we will reach the village of Lumbarda, which can boast of a tradition of wine production since the time of the Illyrians who inhabited the island. Our first stop is at a local family winery where we will have a wine and food tasting, after which you can go to refresh and rest on one of the Lombardy beaches. Our tour ends with a return to the town of Korčula.


From the town of Korcula we will start cycling to get to the village of Zrnovo, one of the oldest settlements on the island. Its inhabitants are well into wine and olive oil making, agriculture and stonemasonry. After a short break we continue onto a gravel road that leads us to magical place. The labyrinth of strangely shaped dolomite rocks dressed in moss, overgrown with ivy, surrounded by holm oak and fern. Although this protected area is by no means huge it comes naturally to spend some time exploring its green corridors, aromatic herbs or looking for the secret spring. On the way back we return to Zrnovo to enjoy incredibly rich taste of the most autochthonous olive oil, and other organic products and food of the area in an original old stone house setting. To broaden the perspective of this beautiful part of the island, we return to Korčula by another route.

Day 6. KORČULA – STON - DUBROVNIK Evening strolling through Dubrovnik streets by bike

Today we start with transfer to Dubrovnik with stop in Ston, small fisherman town, on the entry point to the Peljesac Peninsula. Historically, Ston was an important salt producing town, strategically positioned on the Adriatic shore along important trade routes. The town was so significant for Ragusa Republic that they ordered one of the longest fortifications in Europe to be built here, a defence wall 3.4 miles long. The walls are still standing today, and so is the salt production. Ston is also a popular destination for foodies due to the local Mali Ston Bay rich with mussels and oysters. Lunch in Ston is a culinary highlight of any foodie tour in Croatia which you will taste today in unique gastronomic experience by sailing a boat among untouched natural beauty of the protected eco system of the bay. Entire experience will also have educational character about the process of cultivating oysters. After settling in the hotel, with our bikes we’ll ride to city centre and then continue to the coast of Lapad, passing near the enchanting gothic renaissance Sorkočević Castle, built in 1521 as an aristocrat’s summer residence. Our tour then continues along the seaside, all around the peninsula of Lapad and its long stretches of pebbled beaches, of which the most famous is named “Copacabana“. We will climb to Petka, the only fully green hill in the entire Dubrovnik. Our itinerary will then take us to Gorica, another hill with a charming St Blaise church atop. From there, we’ll proceed to Boninovo, a neighbourhood whose great sea views stretch uninterrupted all the way to Italy. Here we’ll have a photo-stop and then ride back.


Enjoy your final breakfast of the trip this morning; an excellent chance to reminisce about the many adventures you’ve just enjoyed. If you’ve still got a little appetite for adventure, speak to your sales representative about extending your stay in Dubrovnik. Or if you’re ready to put up your feet, now’s the time to start your journey home.
