Dalmatia and Kvarner bay

Dalmatia

Dalmatia is the region in the southeast of Croatia, and the east coast of the Adriatic. Parts of southwest Montenegro are also included. It stretches from the island of Pag in the north of the bay to Kotor in the south. The main cities of Spit, Zadar and Dubrovnik are well worth seeing.

Stomorska

Central and southern Dalmatia

You can expect a lot of culture and nature on this cycling and sailing trip through central and southern Dalmatia. Cycle through forests on the island of Mljet and enjoy a glass of Dingač red wine from the peninsula of Pelješac. A visit to the interesting cities of Split and Dubrovnik are on the programme, these are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Your yacht will take you from island to island and the crew will show you secluded bays to go swimming. The cycling usually takes place on the winding paths along the coast, before you return to your ship for the evening. For island hopping from Trogir, there are four charming ships to choose from:

Nationalparc Krka

Northern Dalmatia

This varied bike & boat trip takes you though the National Park and the islands of northern Dalmatia. The blue of the Adriatic, the deep green pine forests and the purple sage create a splendid colour palate. By bike you explore small, hidden bays, where an opportunity to jump into the cool water cannot be missed. Idyllic fishing villages are perfect for lingering. On the predominantly asphalted routes, the early stages are cycled through fragrant forests, where the sea and quaint villages make up the views. Starting from Zadar, we return there via the islands of Dugi Otok, Murter and Pašman and Kornati National Park. A special highlight of this trip is the astounding Krka Falls, where parts of the Winnetou films were made with Pierre Brice and Lex Barker.

Your host on this bike and boat journey in Northern Dalmatia is one of four ships:

Kvarner Bay

The Kvarner Bay is located between the peninsula of Istria and the Croatian Littoral. The most important place is the port city of Rijeka. There are many inhabited islands in the bay, such as Krk, Pag, Cres, Lošinj, Rab, Susak, Unije, Ilovik, Male Srakane or Vele Srakanesid. Kvarnerland is the central area of the Croatian coast.

Discover the islands of Kvarner Bay by bike

In Rijeka you will be picked up by your ship. Then it sails from island to island, which you then discover by bike. You cycle along hidden paths to secluded bays, where the azure blue water invites you to take a dip. The green hills alternate between rugged cliffs and idyllic bays. Take time to discover the beauty of the region.

You can enjoy this unique tour on five different ships:
