Our cycle-tours in Southern Dalmatia, which is the smallest and most sparsely populated region of Croatia, will take us past unique little towns and the beautiful island countryside. These tours will let us experience the beautiful island of Korčula with its picturesquely situated old township, the island Vis- situated far outside at the sea- and the beautiful lavender island of Hvar. Stroll around Hvar town with its mighty fortress and enjoy the calmness of the artist’s town Stari Grad. Our tour guide explains us the towns of Trogir, Hvar, Stari Grad and Korčula, which are almost all protected under UNESCO‘s World Heritage list. One tour guide will cycle with the mountain bikers while the other will accompany the hybrid cyclists. Due to changing wind and weather conditions as well as organizational requirements the tour could be conducted in reverse order.

Approx 220km by bicycle. Level 2-3

Our cycle tour leads us via the village of Blato, like Rome build on seven hills, along a pass road across Pupnat bay and finally to Korčula town, where we have time to take a walk through the wonderful old town with its narrow “fishbone like” alleys.
