Our trip starts from Dubrovnik.

Dubrovnik airport is 22 km (13 miles) southeast of town, down the coast at Cilipi. Buses (30 min, 30kn) meet all incoming Croatia Airlines and British Airways flights, stopping in town near the Pile Gate before going on the main new bus station, 3 km (2 miles) west of the Old Town at Gruz. A taxi costs about 250 kn.
Randonnée Tours - Special Departure
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. We’ve created a trip that takes in both Dubrovnik and Split, and the exquisite Dalmatian islands including Mljet, Korkula, Hvar and Brac, each unique and ideal for active travel (and relaxation).
- Small group, extraordinary guides, and authentic experiences.
- A ride you will never forget: a recently discovered newly paved road on one of the islands that will leave you breathless.
- Cooking course at the home of a local chef in Hvar.
- Private boat transfers between Mljet, Korkula and Hvar.
- Order off the menu at restaurants you won't find in guidebooks.
- We design and operate our own trips so there are only good surprises.
Arrival: Dubrovnik Our trip begins in the historical city of Dubrovnik, now a UNESCO World Heritage site and one of the great cities of Eastern Europe. The historical center is well-protected by its fortified walls, making it a wonderful place to stroll. With its strategic position on the Adriatic, Dubrovnik makes for an ideal place to begin our trip.
