Croatia Bike & Sail Tours: Top 5 Croatian Holidays

Explore Croatia on an affordable cycle and sail holiday

If you want to explore Croatia's azure waters, countless beaches, rugged islands and relaxed cycle routes, you don't want to miss these incredible Croatia Bike and Sail tours. We've listed the Top 5 best cycle and sail holidays in Croatia to help you easily discover the highlights of this Balkan nation.

Most of these bike and boat tours in Croatia have standard and deluxe options, meaning the vessel will have varying levels of comforts depending on your budget. They all feature a professional local guide who will reveal the hidden cultural nuances of Croatia that you can't find in a guidebook. One other thing to note is that many of these cycling tours have an electric bike option, which takes the pressure off less confident cyclists (hear how an electric bike helped one traveller keep up with the group).

Here are five of the best bike and sail tours in Croatia.

 

  1. Croatia Bike and Sail Tour

  2. Comfortable boats are a perfect base for our Croatia Bike & sail trip

     

    This Croatia Bike and Sail tour is the most popular way to experience the beauty of Croatia. Explore the islands of Southern Dalmatia by cycling through the postcard perfect villages and rugged terrain by day, including the islands of Hvar, Makarska, Vis and Korcula. Then retire to your comfortable yacht and go swimming in the Adriatic Sea and relax in the seaside ambience.

    There's also the Croatia Bike and Sail Deluxe tour which features a more premium vessel.

  3. Kvarner Bay Bike and Boat Tour

  4. Picturesque Krka National Park

    If you want to explore the lands of Northern Dalmatian coast, the Kvarner Bay Bike and Boat tour is for you. This cycle and sail trip will captivate you with its picturesque islands, hearty Croatian food and wine, and stunning cycle paths. Discover the islands of Cres, Losinj, Molat and Pag, the latter which is famous for its specialty cheeses. There's also a Deluxe option for this trip.

    Hear how B. Christison from Australia rated this bike trip:

    "The boat cruise and bike riding was wonderful. Incredible towns and villages to sail past or cycle through and the food on the boat was amazing. Just far too much of it!! Was starting to undo the good we had done on our three tours prior to this." 

  5. National Parks of North Dalmatia tour

  6. The town of Primosten as visited on our National Parks of Dalmatia trip

     

    There's so much focus on the glittering waters of the Croatian coastline that it's easy to forget about Croatia's amazing National Parks. On the National Parks of North Dalmatia bike and boat tour you'll explore the unspoiled nature of parks. Admire the unique waterfalls in Krka and the impressive cliffs of Kornati.

    Throughout the whole tour, your friendly local guides will present Croatia's history to you as well as helping you better understand the various cultures of the islands.

  7. Dalmatian Coast and Dubrovnik Bike and Sail: Deluxe Tour

  8. Electric bikes will make the hills in Croatia's Southern Dalmatian islands alot easier

    Take in the dramatic scenery of Croatia's Dalmatian coast on this tour that follows a route from Split to Dubrovnik (or vice versa). Dubrovnik is known as the Pearl of the Adriatic and deservedly has UNESCO World Heritage status, but it's perhaps most famously known as one of the main settings for the Game of Thrones TV show. 

    Highlights of this 8 day guided bike and boat tour include exploring the islands of Mljet, Korcula and Hvar; cycling glorious bike paths between historic villages, and relaxing with great food and company on board your deluxe motor yacht.

  9. North Dalmatia Bike and Boat Deluxe Tour

  10. The harbour at Trogir, starting point for many of our Croatian boat based trips

     

    Discover the medieval towns of Sibenik, Zadar and Trogir on the North Dalmatia Bike and Boat tour. This tour cycles through a myriad of landscapes: untouched national parks, crystal clear waters, and the waterfalls and canyons in Krka.

    Hear what S Hyde from California had to say:

    "Our trip was wonderful! Our boat was beautiful and the food incredible! The staff was very attentive and out two guides were terrific. Very personable and always available to help us out and answer questions. The islands we visited were beautiful and the three city guides we had in Zadar, Sibenik and Trogir were excellent!"
