Croatia Islands Cycling Holiday

CROATIA |  CYCLING HOLIDAY  | BIKE TOURING  | 2023

 

8-day Cycling holidays in Croatia with island hopping and cycling through typical island landscapes, taking in the beauty of old stone towns and pebble beaches. Visiting Šolta, Brač, Hvar, Korčula, Mljet and Pelješac before concluding the tour in Dubrovnik. A true Dalmatian cycling delight.

The Dalmatian Coast is one of the true wonders of Europe, with the clearest waters in the Adriatic Sea, magnificent historic and cultural interest. Experiencing this special region by bike is by far the most rewarding way to travel. Exploring small fishing villages and the stunning Dalmatian Coast landscapes. The magical towns of Dubrovnik and Split. Enjoying the regional cuisine and relaxing at night in your self contained apartment.

 

From your arrival in Split until the end point in Dubrovnik, your journey will take you to the beautiful islands of Šolta, Brač, Hvar, Mljet and Korčula, traveling by bike, ferry boats and catamarans. You will enjoy your cycle between seaside villages, tiny medieval walled towns and lovely quiet pebbled bays, set against a backdrop of pine forests and mountains. The trip concludes in the well known town of Dubrovnik, where you can admire the architecture of the old stone town center.
