Croatia by bicycle has a beautiful and well-indented coast with thousands of islands, reefs and bays. Numerous romantic ruins, charming hills, countless natural beauties and phenomena are waiting to be discovered. We invite you to spend a week on a ship cruising between the mainland and the sea. Good cuisine, an open-minded crew and knowledgeable tour guides are expecting you. You will visit two national parks and the islands of Central Dalmatia, starting from Trogir. Highlights include UNESCO-Protected old town of Trogir, Primosten, Sibenik with its famous cathedral, Zadar, National Parks Krka-waterfalls and Kornati Islands. Trogir can easily be reached via Split Airport.
Spend your days cycling, and nights on board of our motor yacht, which will be accompanying you throughout the whole trip. On a romantic motor yacht – your floating accommodation – you discover the charm of the Adriatic in your own special way.
Individual arrival, either by car to Trogir or by plane to Split. After checking in on the motor yacht at Trogir between 2 and 2.30 pm our first cruise starts leading us to Rogoznica – a village on a small island which is connected to the mainland by a dam. Here we also spend our first night.
In the morning we cycle from Rogoznica to Primošten. From there the boat takes us to the city of Šibenik to the spot where the Krka River flows into the Adriatic Sea. After visiting the famous cathedral and the lovely old town we set off again. On the cruise we pass the lower course of the river Krka following the river bend until we reach Skradin. In the port of the village we spend our night.
The magnificent port of Skradin is today’s starting point for our excursion by boat and on foot to the most famous part of the Krka National Park with its unique waterfalls. In the early afternoon our boat takes us to a landing place close to Šibenik. From here we cycle to Vodice, a well-known and lively resort on the Dalmatian mainland.
In the morning we cycle from Vodice to Murter Island that is connected to the mainland by the lift bridge at Tisno. We pass the bridge and cycle along the water front, passing by two very old coastal villages, until we reach a small landing place from where the boat takes us on a cruise through the National Park Kornati, an archipelago in crystal clear water which is known for its rich aequatic realm. Our destination is the Nature Park Telašcica. In the evening a walk through the park leads us along the stunning cliffs of the island. The famous Silver Lake – known by movies of Winnetou – is also located in the Nature Park. Overnight stay on the Island of Dugi Otok.
Today’s cycling tour leads us along a virtually traffic-free and panoramic road. We ride across the whole island. During the ride we’re treated to countless unforgettable views of the islands in the deep blue sea. We meet our ship for lunch. Afterwards the ship takes us to Zadar, which, for centuries, was the political, cultural and spiritual centre of Dalmatia. Our tour guide takes us on an extensive walk through the lanes of the lively old centre. 3,000 years of history have left their imprint on the character of this town and there are many things to be admired: the mighty fortified walls with their bastions, the loggia but also the early Romanesque St. Donatus Basilica.
During breakfast the boat crosses to the island of Ugljan at the channel of Zadar. Today we have a lot of time to explore both of the islands Ugljan and Pašman by bicycle. Recently they have been connected by a bridge. We cycle along the East Coast, always with beautiful views to the mainland and the ocean. Afterwards our boat cruises to the coral island of Zlarin.
In the morning our motor yacht will take us to island Solta. Olive and fig trees and farmland surround the streets. The spicy smell of lavender and rosmary will follow you throughout the whole tour around the silent island until we reach the village Grohote. During mid day our last cruise will take us back to Trogir. Here we will have enough time to visit the world cultural heritage and medieval old town. After dinner it is time to say good bye to crew and travel guides.
The guests are asked to check out after breakfast, i.e. at 9 am or extended stay in Croatia.
