Croatia 7 days Cycling


Imagine the Mediterranean the way it used to be, in a country that has all the essential elements for the perfect cycling vacation- quiet roads, an abundance of historical sites and now, wonderful hotels and restaurants to enjoy.

This trip begins in Split which has an international airport and frequent flights from Zagreb. After one night discovering the secrets of this historical city, you will cruise to the island of Brac, the largest of the Dalmatian islands and notable for the karst rock, a supple white stone that sculptors have used for centuries here. You’ll be based in Postira, a quaint village with excellent beaches and a comfortable 4-star hotel with swimming pool and all amenities.

After two days exploring Brac, you’ll cruise to the island of Hvar, perhaps the most interesting of the Dalmatian islands. Designed and built by Venetians, Hvar feels distinctly Italian; Hvar is becoming the destination of choice for yacht owners (Barry Dillar’s 103m vessel was in the harbour on our last visit), and cyclists, eager to discover new destinations with lots to see and do. You’ll have three days in Hvar, with enough time to cycle the island’s routes. There are also options for moderate hikes and, if you choose to relax at the hotel’s pool or spa facilities, this is the perfect place to do so.

"Just wanted to pass along how much Glen and I enjoyed our bike trip in Croatia.  It was outstanding - the locations, the hotels, but especially your contacts. We were well taken care of and everything went smoothly.  The bike routes were challenging, but very enjoyable and allowed us to truly see the countryside.  We absolutely loved it and look forward to our next bike excursion."
