This tour belongs to our Islandhopping-Plus-Program which meanwhile consists of four individual tours. Our Plus tours offer our guests a Plus all round, which makes our Islandhopping tours so unique; a comfortable deluxe motor sailor, the availability of ebike hire and pleasant surprises throughout the duration of the journey.
On our South Dalmatia Plus Tour we will show you the beauty of the South Dalmatian coastline and island world in company of our deluxe ship, the majestic Princeza Diana or new first class ship, the luxurious Melody. Highlights of the tour such as the Diocletian Palace in Split, the Golden Horn of Brac, the picturesque old town of Korčula and the lavender island of Hvar along with many other scenic islands make this journey an unforgettable experience. Culture does not fall by the wayside. This tour is in many ways similar to our regular South Dalmatia tour, making the Plus Tour a great alternative should your dream tour date in South Dalmatia already be booked out. Depending on wind and weather we reserve the right to run this tour in reverse.

Approx 230km by bicycle or E-bike. Level 2 – 3.

Day 3, Monday: Vis – Vela Luka

Vis is the furthermost island from mainland Croatia. A Greek colony called Issa has been on the island 2,300 years ago. Due to its strategic location it was a military zone until 1995 and prohibited for foreign tourists. Today we have the opportunity to explore the lovely island by bicycle. After cycling the boat takes us to the Island of Korčula. Overnight stay in Vela Luka.
Cycle route approx 32 km

Day 4, Tuesday: Vela Luka – Korčula

Today we discover the island of Korčula by bicycle and enjoy our lunch break in one of the local restaurants. The calmness and remoteness of the vast vegetation and cypress gardens have given the shape to the probably most beautiful Dalmatian island. 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. We stay overnight in Korčula town.

Day 5, Wednesday: Korčula – Sućuraj – Jelsa – Omiš

We cruise to the island of Hvar once more and go ashore in Sućuraj, which is a very unique, picturesque little fishing village at the easternmost tip of the island of Hvar. Dalmatia mainland is almost within one’s reach. Today cycle tour leads us along the long-drawn-out island till Jelsa, where the ship is expecting us for another cruise. Overnight stay in Omiš.

We load the bikes onto the ship in Maslinica and enjoy our last crossing back to Trogir where, if time permits, we can take a tour of the old town which is a world heritage site. The last evening aboard our ship follows a nice tradition. While enjoying the communal dinner in a cosy atmosphere you will have the chance for a last get-together with your crew and your tour guides.
