The combination of mountain bike and boat in South Dalmatia fulfils a bikers wildest dreams from trails to tranquil swim stops. A charming motor yacht with comfortable cabins and a traditional selection of cuisine is your floating home for the week. Packing your bags and worrying about making your next ferry connection are a thing of the past. Limitless exciting cycling opportunities across Dalmatia’s most beautiful islands is guaranteed. No trails will go undiscovered on this off road adventure, your guide knows the region like the back of his own hand and will inform you well on the land and its people. Honey and wine tastings along the way will give insight to the everyday life of the islands inhabitants.
Our aim is to stay off road. To save time and energy some ascends will take place on tar sealed roads which lead to rewarding trails down to the sea. Descents can be technical and require experience but will spread a smile across the faces of the participants. After a thorough ride there is no better reward than to unwind in a rustic café before the boat collects you and brings you to the next picturesque setting. Picture perfect harbour towns invite you to enjoy the evening strolling through the winding streets or sipping an aperitif in the atmosphere of a local bar. The boat is always open and welcomes you to enjoy the ambiance of a Mediterranean evening on board.

Approx 220km by bicycle. Level 2-3

Individual arrival by car to Trogir or by plane to Split airport, which is about 3 mi./5 km away from the harbour of Trogir. After check in on the motor yacht between 2 and 2:30 pm, the first short cruise starts at 3 pm from Trogir to the island of Hvar. The city of Stari Grad, which counts as the second largest city on Hvar, is the place where we will dock and sleep for the night. The former Greek colony is a mecca for artists and art lovers.

Day 3, Monday: Hvar – 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 mountain bike. Vis is the most loved one of the islands within the mountain biking community. It offers a wide variety of trails: very unique single trails with some pushing stages with unforgettable views. After our bike tour the ship takes us to Vela Luka on Korčula, where we will stay overnight.

Cycle route approx 35 km; Altitude 600m; Level easy/medium

Day 5, Wednesday: Korčula – Sumartin – Pučišća

The ship takes us to Sumartin on the Island of Brač, which is well known for its white marble and used among other things for the White House in Washington and the Reichstag building in Berlin. On a varying path we bike across wine and sage sown fields overlooking the famous quarries. On the final descent to Pučišća we will be rewarded with fantastic views of Cetina-Canyon on the mainland.
