The Adriatic Sea is the most indented section of the Mediterranean Sea in Europe. Its present shape resulted from rising of the sea level by 96 meters following the last Ice Age in the Pleistocene period, when valleys and basins were submerged and dry land emerged as elongated islands, separated by sea channels. The Croatian Adriatic coastline is 1,777 km long and occupies most of the eastern Adriatic coastline.

  • 1.Arrival day

    Welcome to Zagreb, the capital of Croatia. Depending on your arrival time we will organize further activities. First, we will pick you up at the airport and transfer you to your accommodation site. Then we would like you to get acquainted with your bike, therefore a short test ride would be optimal, including some sightseeing. If there is enough time, sightseeing will be done separately. We are planning a traditional dinner in the evening so that you will have a great opportunity to taste something new and discuss the tour details.

  • 2.Zagreb - Opatija - Island of Cres

    Following an early breakfast, we will set off on our journey for the day and shortly say a warm hello to Opatija, the oldest tourist resort on the Adriatic coast, well known for its many villas and hotels. We will have a cup of coffee and a slice homemade cake, relax and take in the scent of Lungo Mare. The curved coastal roads will then bring us to Plomin with a bay panorama and after a ferry ride we’ll be landing on the island of Cres, a true gem of the Adriatic sea: still a bit wild and not enough explored and, to a large extent, still an enigma, famous as the nesting place for the golden eagle, European honey buzzard (Pernis apivorus) and the nightingale. It will surprise you with the breathtaking beauty of its nature and you will have the chance to experience it first-hand since we’ll be riding over the island. We will have a traditional lunch in Valun, a small fishing village situated in a deep, quiet lagoon and later visit Lubenice, an astonishing small stone town existing for 4000 years on the top of a cliff 378 meters above the sea level with the most stunning sunsets in the world.

  • 3.Island of Cres - Island of Losinj – Island of Krk

    In the morning we’ll start our ride towards the island of Lošinj and reach it by crossing a bridge linking Cres and Losinj. The island of Losinj is rich in Mediterranean vegetation which makes it a perfect wellness oasis. It is famous for its beautiful woodland area, untouched nature and mid climate which allowed both Mali and Veli Lošinj to be proclaimed health resorts and rehabilitation centers back in 1892. A short ferry ride will first take us to the island of Krk, the biggest island in the Adriatic and another green island with intriguing history dating back from the ancient Romans, over early Christianity to the early forms of Croatian State founded in the Middle Ages with the first proof of Croatian written word - the Baška tablet, found on the island in 1100. We will enjoy the sandy beaches, too, don’t worry....

  • 4.Island of Krk - Island of Rab

    We will move to yet another gem on our way, the island of Rab, town and island of marvelous scenic diversity and with a variety of beautiful beaches. The island’s architectural heritage dates back to pre-Roman times, with the town’s four characteristic bell towers and buildings which together result in a refined experience for all the senses. The atmosphere is best taken in with long pleasant walks along the streets and squares of this island boasting with more than 120 years of experience in organized tourism. But, the all the natural and historical beauties would be in vain without the kindness, hospitality and diligence of the island's people. The island and its people really have a lot to offer and we’ll make the best of it.

  • 5.Island of Rab - Island of Pag - Island of Murter

    We will move from Rab to Pag, the longest of the Adriatic islands, just partly green, mostly white and with a Moon-like appearance, rich and filled with history and natural attractions: lamb, cheese, Baskotini (the oldest sweets in Europe), salt, churches, city walls, towers, bridges dating back to the 5th century, lace… and spectacular roads. Crossing the big bridge in the south of the island will get us to the mainland and we will head towards Zadar. Zadar has historically been the site of many important events and served as a major capital city for many rulers. This is exactly why it is nowadays referred to as the “town museum”. The old town center dates back to the Roman times, with its legacy still visible in the remains of the forum, temple, amphitheater, cemeteries, city walls with towers and numerous city gates. The most famous monument and a true symbol of the town is certainly the Church of St. Donatus dating back to the 9th century AD, built on the remains of the Roman forum.

    After visiting Zadar we will be heading towards the south and in an hour or so reach the island of Murter, our base for the next two days. The island is reached by crossing a 50m bridge and immediately reveals new beauties on our route.

  • 6.Rest day: Kornati National Park

    This will be a day of rest, and what a day it will be!

    Enchanted by the beauty of its landscape, the Nobel laureate George Bernard Shaw wrote: 'On the last day of the Creation, God desired to crown His work and thus created the Kornati Islands out of tears, stars and breath'.

    We will visit the Kornati National Park by a private speed boat. Kornati are the most dense group of islands in the whole of the Mediterranean; an archipelago located in the waters between the towns of Zadar and Sibenik and consisting of 89 islands, islets and cliffs, covering approximately 238 km of the coastline. Cruising on a ship will offer a magnificent view of the silvery islands rising from the clear blue sea. Although they might give an impression of coldness and of wasteland, a closer look will reveal many forms of natural beauty: habitats of rare species of birds and plants, hiding a special phenomenon of vertical cliffs – the so called “crowns” that face the sea.

    Given their extraordinary natural beauty, abundance of bays and rich sea flora and fauna, 89 of 152 Kornati islands were proclaimed a National Park in 1980.

  • 7.Murter - Krka National Park - Split - Island of Vis

    Leaving the island of Murter, we will head to a circle ride towards Split, our port for the island of Vis. On our way we will stop and visit the Krka National Park with beautiful natural atmosphere and rich flora and fauna of the river and its waterfalls forming the Krka National Park - proclaimed in 1985. The karst environment and the travertine falls of the Krka River are the central protected phenomenon of the Park. The area incorporates the most beautiful parts of the Krka and Cikola flow, as well as seven waterfalls with the fall of 242 meters. Therefore, it is not surprising that this natural environment has such a diverse flora and fauna. The most famous of the waterfalls is Skradinski Buk, one of the most beautiful cliff waterfalls in Europe. Leaving the Park, we will set off to explore Dalmatinska Zagora, an elevated hinterland with numerous karst fields, many small subterranean rivers with the highlight of the Cetina River and its canyon ideal for rafting and cliff climbing. We will then reach Split, another UNESCO heritage site on our route. It is a modern port co-existing alongside the preserved Roman ruins, their centerpiece being the well-preserved Diocletian's Palace. The vast structure, built by the Roman emperor Diocletian in the late 3rd and early 4th century following his abdication from the throne, proves that the ex-emperor did not waste his retirement days in vain.

    A ferry will take us from Split to the island of Vis.

  • 8.Rest day: Island of Vis

    Welcome to the island of Vis, our favorite destination. Its position of the furthest island from the mainland resulted in its isolation in many ways, but also in incredible authentic way of life. From the Romans, over Goths, Byzantines, Venetians, Austrian, English, French, everyone brought their story to the island. Beautiful beaches, preserved nature, ecological agriculture and preserved traditional architecture are unique advantages of this splendid island. Vis offers unique historical, cultural and natural heritage you are certainly going to love. Although being a day of rest, it will be packed with exciting activities and ideas. One of them will be a visit to Biševo, a small island south of Vis and filled with caves, the Blue Cave being the most famous with superb sunshine reflections in the almost surreally pristine blue color of the sea!

  • 9.Island of Vis - Island of Brac

    Riding the island's roads southwards we find ourselves in a small village called Sumartin where we catch a ferry for the mainland, landing in the town of Makarska and continuing our tour to Dubrovnik. To reminiscent a bit, we will climb the Biokovo and enjoy in the almost surreal panorama of the islands scattered in the blue sea. But, we have to leave soon and start our descend, passing the curved coastal highway and visiting a few other Dalmatian towns and areas attractive with their beauties and historical heritage, such as the Neretva delta with its unique microclimate favoring the growth of various types of fruit and veg; Mali Ston with its stone walls ideal for filming scenes from ancient past such as the ones from The Games of Thrones; Neptune's Fountain at Trsteno Arboretum, founded in 1498, now the oldest arboretum in the world. And, finally, we will meet Dubrovnik face to face.

And, finally, we will meet Dubrovnik face to face.

  • 11.Rest day: Dubrovnik

    Dubrovnik is for many people the highlight of any trip to Southeastern Europe/Balkans. Dubrovnik, also referred to as the ‘Pearl of the Adriatic’, has been a UNESCO protected World Heritage Site since 1979.

    Dubrovnik offers unlimited choices and activities, no wonder people have a hard time deciding how to spend a day: from climbing up and strolling the 2 km long City Walls, walking through Stradun, the main Old Town street, wandering through the marble back streets and squares full of historic heritage one can almost feel and smell, walking into the numerous baroque buildings, convents and museums, hopping on a boat and visiting the Elafit Islands scattered in the waters outside the town where ancient Hellenic legends still seem very much alive.

  • 12.Dubrovnik - Peljesac Peninsula - Island of Korcula - Island of Hvar

    We’ll unfortunately have to leave Dubrovnik in the morning and continue with our journey with still more wonders awaiting ahead. We will turn to Pelješac peninsula, home of the best red wine in the world, riding the breathtaking roads to reach the ferry for the island of Korcula or, as the ancient Greeks called it, Korkyra, home of many historic tales and of the one of most famous 13th century explorers Marko Polo. It is of the greenest Adriatic islands, with abundant vineyards and olive groves, smaller and bigger towns and ports protected by stone walls. The town of Korcula is famous for its traditional chivalry dances and much, much more. In the evening we will board a ferry to the island of Hvar.

  • 13.Rest day: Island of Hvar

    In the morning we will set off a cruise to the surroundings of the town of Hvar, another of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites, famous for its aromatic lavender fields. Hvar is not only the ‘Sunny Capital’ of Croatia, with the highest number sunshine of hours per year, but also one of the most magnificent towns in the country. The green of the pines and the blue of the Adriatic Sea embrace the medieval town and offer vast choices: beaching, sitting in one of the numerous bars and enjoying your cup of coffee, watching the harbor, or taking a boat trip and visiting Pakleni otoci (Devil Islands). The name Hvar comes from the ancient Greeks who first founded a colony on the island and named it Pharos. However, it is important to point out that life on the island dates further back, to the Neolithic period. In Roman times villas and agricultural estates were built on the island, resulting in a rich viticulture history and long tradition of permanent living on the island. Hvar is called the island of lavender since it grows here in abundance, as well as rosemary and sage.

  • 14.Island of Hvar - Plitvice Lakes National Park

    The ferry will take us to the mainland in the morning, to the port of Split. We will then ride through the hinterland, passing karst fields, dammed lakes and open or narrow roads on our route to yet another UNESCO World Heritage Site, Plitvice Lakes, another of the 'must see' destinations in Croatia.

  • 15.Plitvice Lakes National Park - Zagreb

    We could use numerous words to describe the site, but the view will leave you absolutely speechless. Plitvice is the most prominent and visited of the eight national parks in Croatia, representing a special and breathtaking hydro-geological phenomenon. Plitvice is a forested mountain region with 16 smaller and bigger lakes of crystal teal color. The lakes collect water from numerous rivers and streams and are interconnected by cascades and waterfalls. Tuff barriers created 10 000 years ago are a distinctive feature of the Park. Its 12,000 acres of rich greens with 16 turquoise lakes, crystalline streams and dozens of waterfalls, provide an ethereal backdrop as you walk along miles of wood-plank paths and gaze at the liquid beauty.

    It comes as no surprise that Plitvice was one of the first sites to be included in the UNESCO’s list of world heritage in 1979.

    In the afternoon we’ll say Hello to Zagreb again, back at our starting point, where we will enjoy a delicious goodbye dinner and have an opportunity to review, discuss and share the impressions from our adventure.

  • 16.Flight home

    The farewell day: your departure time will determine the way we organize the day. There are several possibilities, Zagreb sightseeing being only one of them.

    To round up your stay, we will transfer you to the airport and wish you a nice and pleasant flight home with one final hope: that you had the time of your life with us and that you'll be coming back!
