CRUISE ITINERARY

Day 1, Saturday: Rijeka – Malinska – Krk

From 11:30 am to 1:00 pm, boarding time in the port of Rijeka, our bicycles are awaiting you already on board. If you arrive by your own car, you can proceed to the port already from 10:00 am. Our service-team will lead you to the garage where you can leave your car. Of course, they will also bring you back to the port. 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 “Cast off!”, heading towards Malinska, on the island of Krk. Here starts the first bicycle stage – from Malinska, over Sv. Anton, Nenadići and Vrh, to Krk, the capital of the homonymous island. Dinner and overnight stay in Krk. (D)
Cycle route approx 23 km

Day 2, Sunday: Krk – Dobrinj – Vrbnik – Baška

After breakfast, we continue our bike tour across the island of Krk. First we will go to Dobrinj, in the central part of the island. We then continue to Vrbnik, an ancient town, perched on a cliff on the east coast of Krk. The vineyards of Vrbnik are famous for their golden-coloured Žlahtina wine. We will stop for lunch in a cosy tavern in Vrbnik (not included in the cruise price), before continuing on to Baška, in the south of the island. The 3 km steep climb to the highest point of the day will be rewarded with a panoramic view over the Baščanska Draga, a fertile valley that stretches all the way to the coast on the southern part of the island. Dinner and overnight stay at the harbour of Baška (44.7 km). Since the overnight stay in Baška may depend on the weather, in case of adverse wind conditions, the bicycle tour will end in Punat. (B, D)
Cycle route approx 45 km

Day 3, Monday: Baška – Lopar – Rab – Barbat – Pudarica – Mišnjak – Rab

Today, the boat will take us to Lopar, located in the north of the island of Rab. Our bike tour leads us from Supetarska Draga over Kampor to the town of Rab. Our sailing boat will be already waiting for us in the picturesque scenery of the old town with its four unique bell towers. Lunch will be served aboard. After lunch we will go by bike for another tour, passing the places Barbat, Pudarica and Mišnjak and then all the way back to Rab again. After a guided tour through the historic town, you will have the opportunity to visit a restaurant for dinner. Overnight stay in the port of Rab. (B, L)
Cycle route approx 45 km

Day 4, Tuesday: Rab – Lun – Novalja – Kolan – Mandre

Only a good half hour by boat and we will reach Lun, located at the northern tip of the neighbour island of Pag. The island stands out above all by its extremes – partly meagre, like a lunar landscape, partly covered with lush green mountain fields, where numerous sheep graze, “producing” the famous Pag cheese. First we ride to Novalja, the main town of the northern half of the island, where you can have lunch at a restaurant or in a tavern. We then continue to Kolan and finally to Mandre, where our boat will be waiting in the harbour. Dinner and overnight stay in Mandre. (B, D)
Cycle route approx 34 km

Day 5, Wednesday: Mandre – Mali Lošinj – Veli Lošinj – Mali Lošinj

Today a somewhat longer boat journey lies ahead of us – it takes about four hours to get from Mandre to Mali Lošinj, on the island of Lošinj. Heading south, we anchor for lunch on board in a bay of one of the small islands south of Lošinj. On arrival at the harbour of Mali Lošinj, we unload our bicycles to discover the unique countryside with its vast pine forests. We ride around the Čikat Bay, along the coast and through the Sunčana Uvala (the Sunny Bay) to the picturesque seaside town of Veli Lošinj. Afterwards we will return to Mali Lošinj. Tonight you can enjoy a nice dinner in one of the numerous restaurants of Mali Lošinj. Overnight stay in Mali Lošinj. (B, L)
Cycle route approx 18 km

Day 6, Thursday: Mali Lošinj – Nerezine – Osor – Martinšćica – Cres

The “2-Islands-Day”. After breakfast, we jump on our bikes and ride from Mali Lošinj over Nerezine to Osor, where the islands of Lošinj and Cres are connected by a pivot bridge. Passing Belej and Stivan, we reach the Bay of Martinšćica. We load the bikes on the boat and continue to the town of Cres, the capital of the homonymous island. We will have lunch during the tour on the island of Cres (not included in the cruise price). Dinner and overnight stay at the port of Cres. (B, D)
Cycle route approx 45 km

Day 7, Friday: Cres – Predošćica – Cres – Rijeka

The final bike tour leads us from Cres 14 km north to a vantage point near the village of Predošćica and back. We will have lunch in Cres (not included in the cruise price) and then load our bicycles for the last time. Leaving the harbour of Cres, we will sail to a bay in the north of the island, to take a long last swim in the blue Adriatic Sea, before returning to Rijeka. Dinner and overnight stay in the port of Rijeka. (B, D)
Cycle route approx 28 km

Day 8, Saturday: Rijeka

After breakfast, disembarkation until 9.00am. (B)
