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 two charming ships to choose from:
The MS Aneta was built in 1958 and renovated in 2009. It can hold a maximum of 32 guests, who can use the lounge on the upper deck and large sundeck. The 15 cabins are about 4-5m2 in size, and have bunk beds.
This ship has probably experienced a lot. It was built in 1928 and completely reconstructed in 2006 and brought up to date. The air-conditioned lounge and sundeck are perfect for relaxation. A total of five cabins on the lower deck, and five cabins on the upper deck are furnished with bunk beds or French beds.
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 thorough 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 two ships:
The MS Dalmatio was built in 1957 and rebuilt in 1990. On her you will find space for a maximum of 26 guests. The spacious sundeck and air-conditioned lounge invite you to relax after cycling. All 13 cabins are air-conditioned and have a porthole that opens.
MS Carpe Diem
The MS Carpe Diem is a premium ship. It was built in 2015/16. There is an air-conditioned lounge and a 250m2 sundeck available to use. The bathing platform, with showers is inviting. Your bike is taken care of in the garage on the main deck. The 18 cabins are equipped with a French bed or single beds or a French bed with a separate single bed.
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.
