If you would like to experience the region of South Dalmatia thoroughly, not wanting to do without Dubrovnik and its amazing city walls, this sail and cycle trip is an excellent choice. Accompanied by our charming motor yacht, we get to know this sparsely populated part of Croatia. Breathtaking scenic experiences and cultural highlights await you. The highlights of the trip are the town centre of Split and Dubrovnik which are listed as UNESCO’s world heritage sites. We cycle the islands of Brač, Hvar, Korčula, Lastovo, Mljet and Šipan and experience the interaction of sea and land, culture and nature close up and personal. The direction of this tour alternates each week.
Individual journey to Split. Check-in on board starts between 2 and 2.30 pm at Split harbour. At about 4.30 pm, a guided city tour offers us the chance to see inside the former Palace of Emperor Diocletian and to learn about its transformation into the city which it has become. The boat will spend the night in Split offering you an opportunity to experience Split’s nightlife.
We cruise to the island of Brač, famous for its radiant marble that was, among others, used for the White House in Washington and in the construction of the German Reichstag building in Berlin. Today’s cycle tour leads us from the tranquil harbour of Milna to Bol. The boat awaits us here for another crossing by boat to Jelsa on the Island of Hvar.
Today’s cycling tour leads us to Stari Grad and later on to the opposite side of the Island of Hvar. After a short break our cycle tour leads us through lavender fields and small villages till we get to the islands capital. Make use of the time and go for a little stroll through the city of Hvar before boarding the boat. Standing on the magnificent Renaissance Square you can enjoy a view up to the Spanish fortress towering high above the city. Dinner on board and overnight stay in the sheltered bay of Vela Luka on the Island of Korčula, regarded as one of the most beautiful islands in Dalmatia.
Today’s cycle tour leads us across the charming island of Korčula all the way to Korčula city. A mild Mediterranean climate and a broad variety of different landscapes await us here. Take your time, and remember to take a break to enjoy the view over the deep blue sea and neighboring islands. The Picturesque town of Korčula competes with Venice for the honor of being the birthplace of the famous explorer Marco Polo. Use the evening to wander through the fishbone alleyways and soak up the vibes of this stylish town. A guided city tour will give you an overview of the city and its features.
And off we go! A morning crossing takes us to the beautiful Island of Lastovo. The island is one of the smaller inhabited islands in the Adriatic Sea. The Emperor Augustus appreciated the mild climate, and in Roman times it was even named “Augusta Insula” after him. The barely more than 1,000 inhabitants continue to live from fishing the extremely rich waters, agriculture and viticulture. Today’s cycle tour takes us in a large circle around the beautiful island. The gold-coloured white wine “Marastina”, known even beyond Croatia’s borders, is grown here. Dinner is served on board as the sun sets.
We start with a short crossing to the next island: Mljet. Ashore at Pomena on Mljet we cycle across the green and forested island – known as the honey island. With 70 % of its landmass covered by woodland it is the most forested island in the Mediterranean region. Homer mentioned this lovely island in his epic poem “Odyssey”. He made it a home for the Nymph Calypso and the legendary Greek king Odysseus, who could not resist Calypso and stayed on Mljet for seven years.
A short crossing in the morning takes us to the island of Šipan, the largest of the Elaphiti Islands. Accompanied by your tour guide a pleasant cycle trip takes us past villas with exotic gardens and through a fertile valley framed by a range of limestone hills. Returning to the boat we enjoy our last crossing after an adventurous week. After arrival in Dubrovnik there is plenty of time to explore the UNESCO world Heritage city and to take part on a guided city tour. A cheerful evening meal on board the boat gives you time to celebrate the success of the week with fellow travelers and tour guides.
