CRUISE ITINERARY

Day 1, Saturday: Zadar – Petrčane – Zaton – Nin – Vir

From 11:30 am to 1:00 pm, boarding time in the port of Zadar, our bicycles are awaiting you already in front of the boat. If you arrive by your own car, you can proceed to the port already from 10:00 am and unload your luggage. Our service team will show you the parking lot where you can leave your car. After embarkation, our representatives and guides will welcome you aboard with a drink and you will meet the crew and your fellow passengers. After a lunch snack, we will take our bikes and discover the Riviera of Zadar. From Zadar we will continue through Kožino, Petrčane, and Zaton to Nin. Nin, located on a small island and connected by two bridges to the mainland, was once the seat of Croatian Bishops and at times even the royal city. Particularly noteworthy is the church of Sv. Kriz (the Holy Cross) dating back to the 11th century, also known as “the smallest cathedral in the world”. After a break, we will continue our tour heading to the port of Vir, on the homonymous island, which is connected to the mainland by a bridge. Dinner on board and overnight stay in Vir. (D)

We unload the bikes and ride to the lighthouse of Veli Rat, which marks the north-western end of the island. We can have lunch in a restaurant in Veli Rat or Verunić, before continuing our tour via Božava and Dragove to Brbinj. Afterwards, we will sail for the Island of Rava.

There we will enjoy a tour around the island – passing Lovišća, Plitka Vala, Betina and Murter we will reach the Podvrške bay. By the way, the small village of Betina is considered the centre of traditional timber shipbuilding, where still today boats are hand-crafted in small private shipyards.
