Trip highlights

  • Cycling in the Southern Dalmatian islands with dramatic scenery
  • Exploring the small towns and villages en route
  • Wandering through the alleyways of Dubrovnik
  • The island of Mljet with its impressive national park
  • Soaking up the hospitality onboard the deluxe motor yacht

George Bernard Shaw famously said that 'those who seek paradise on Earth should come to Dubrovnik', also describing it as 'the pearl of the Adriatic'. With its impressive old town and dominating position on the Adriatic coast, the city is visually stunning and deserving of both Shaw's remarks and its UNESCO World Heritage status. The trip begins in either Dubrovnik or Split on alternative weeks through the season. In Dubrovnik there is time set aside to explore the narrow streets and lively town by foot, while the islands of southern Dalmatia, extending westerly into the Mediterranean, are best explored by bike and boat. Highlights include visiting the islands of Korcula and Mljet, swimming in secluded coves, discovering the UNESCO listed historic centre of Split and pedalling past small villages amongst lavender fields in Hvar. With a deluxe motor yacht as your base, you will enjoy good food in the company of your fellow cyclists and experienced crew, with ample space on board to relax and absorb the views after each cycling day.

Meals:  D

In the morning we cross over to the green and forested island Mljet, known as the honey island. With 70% of its land mass covered by woodland, it is the most forested island in the Mediterranean region. Homer mentioned Mljet in his epic poem “The Odyssey”: it was the home of the Nymph Calypso. Odysseus, who could not resist Calypso, stayed on Mljet for seven years. We cycle from Sobra to Pomena where our boat awaits us for dinner. Overnight in Pomena.

Meals:  B,L

Today we cruise to the island of Lastovo, one of the smaller inhabited islands in the Adriatic Sea. The Emperor Augustus appreciated its mild climate, and in Roman times it was even named “Augusta Insula” after him. Today’s cycle tour takes us across this beautiful island. The gold-coloured wine grape “Marastina” is grown here. Back on the boat we cross to Korcula Island, one of the most beautiful islands in Dalmatia. The picturesque town of Korcula competes with Venice for the honour of being the birthplace of the famous explorer Marco Polo. Enjoy the evening wandering through the alleyways and soaking up the vibes of this stylish town. A guided city tour will give you an overview of the town and its sights.

Meals:  B,L

Today’s cycling tour leads us across the charming island of Korcula. A mild Mediterranean climate and a vast variety of different landscapes accompany us along the route. Take your time and don’t forget to take a break to enjoy the view over the deep blue sea and neighbouring islands. Dinner is served on board to recharge after a day full of activity. Overnight stay in the sheltered bay of Vela Luka.

Meals:  B,L

The day starts with a relaxing cruise to Hvar town on the island of the same name. Make use of the time before the bike ride begins to go for a little stroll through the city. Standing on the magnificent Renaissance Square you can enjoy a view up to the Spanish Fortress towering high above the city. Today's cycle route takes us from the Hvar town through small villages and lavender fields to Stari Grad on the opposite side of the island. After a steady climb, the descent back down to Stari Grad offers breath-taking views. After a lunch break on board we continue cycling to Jelsa, where we spend the night.

Meals:  B,L

We cruise to the island of Brac, famous for its radiant, precious limestone that was, among others, used for the White House in Washington and in the construction of the German Reichstag building in Berlin. On arrival at Brac, we start our bike tour, from Bol to the picturesque harbor town of Pucišca. We will spend the afternoon and evening here. Enjoy the serenity of the town, famous internationally for its stone masonry college.

Meals:  B,L

Our last bike tour leads us along the northern coastline of Brac, Pucišca to Postira. Then we enjoy our last cruise back to the UNESCO World Heritage City of Split. On a guided city tour, we get the opportunity to see inside the former Palace of Emperor Diocletian and learn about its transformation into the city it is today. A cheerful evening meal on board the boat gives us plenty of time to celebrate the wonderful week with fellow travellers and tour guides.

Meals:  B,D

Disembark after breakfast by 9am. A taxi transfer can be booked on request for an additional cost from the boat to Split airport or hotel.

Bike information



This cycle tour is designed for hybrid and e-bikers. E-bikes, if required, must be booked in advance. The trip requires a good level of fitness to fully participate in the cycling. The tours will take you up to a height of between 200 and 500m/656 to 1640ft above sea-level. The day-tours (up to 60km) are through hilly and mountainous terrain and will be completed without any time-constraints. There are some long and steep climbs, during which you may need to push your hybrid bike. Guided group pace: the riding pace is determined by the cyclists on e-bikes. Guests who choose a hybrid bicycle should have the necessary physical condition to keep up with this pace. If you are unsure of your fitness for this trip we recommend you consider an E-Bike - available for a supplement. You are free to set aside a half or full day to swim or spend on board the boat, instead of taking a planned bike-tour. We will traverse mostly asphalted roads, which are rarely travelled on outside the holiday seasons.
