Croatia Calling – Bike & Sail

Explore Croatia's Dalmatian coast islands.

Idyllically located across from Italy and just below Austria and Slovenia, Croatia is now firmly cemented as a flagship European destination. A first impression of the Croatian Dalmatian coast islands is a little bit like the Greek Islands melded with Venetian architecture. The village walls are limestone not whitewash and the roofs a soothing shade of auburn ceramic but it has this same feeling of relaxed coastal charm.

From Historical Complex of Split with the Palace of Diocletian to Old Town of Dubrovnik, you can explore town’s warren of alleyways, climbing fort tower for a birds-eye view of the magnificent coast, taking in the markets or simply enjoying an espresso and homemade pastries in a secluded courtyard.

Being fit and bike ready is the best way to enjoy coastline and the brilliant cerulean waters, pedaling along from village to village and bay to bay. Aside from the varied and interesting terrain you can cycle through, the experience is also about visiting a historic monastery, sampling famous Croatian oysters in pretty port towns, admiring the fascinating architecture and fortresses on the islands of Hvar and Korcula, tasting fine wines and swimming in crystal clear waters.
