8-day Bike & Boat Tour Dalmatia National Parks from/to Trogir

Croatia has a beautiful coast with thousands of islands, reefs and bays. Numerous romantic ruins, charming hills, countless natural beauties and phenomena are waiting to be discovered.

On one of our easiest tours, we invite you to spend one week on a ship cruising between the mainland and the islands. Good cuisine, an open minded crew and knowledgeable tour guides are expecting you. We visit two National Parks and the islands of Central Dalmatia, starting from Trogir. Highlights including UNESCO protected old town of Trogir, Primošten, Šibenik with its famous cathedral, Zadar, National Park Krka-waterfalls and Kornati Islands are on our list. On a romantic motor yacht, our floating accommodation, we discover the charm of the Adriatic in our own special way.

Requirements Level 1-2

The bike routes require a basic level of fitness, which you should have acquired by occasional or daily cycling. The routes can reach an altitude of 328 ft. to 985 ft/100 to 300 meters. The daily routes of 9 to 22 mi./15 to 35 km cover hilly terrain and can be completed without time constraints. You will also come across some rather steep climbs, where walking your bike is of course permitted. The roads are mostly asphalted and there is little traffic outside of holiday periods. This tour is primarily a guided group tour. Upon consultation with your tour guides, the possibility to cycle on your own along recommended, suitable routes, may present itself. You are free to set aside a half or full day to swim or spend on board the boat, instead of taking a planned bicycle-tour. Helmets use is mandatory on all cycling tours. You are strongly encouraged to bring your own well-fitted helmet. Rental helmets are available on board in limited number (on request).

Children:

We believe that only children in a good physical condition and of a minimum age of 10 and previous bicycle tour experience are able to master the bike-tours on their own strength. For children with a body height of minimum 1.20 m (4 ft.) special children bicycles are offered. Children that are younger than 16 years are obliged to wear a helmet by the Croatian law.

Accommodation:

At 27 x 7 m the cruise ship built in 2000, counts as one of the smaller ships with a capacity of 30 guests. With an impressive 100 navigated tours she entered the Island hopping history book. The fine detail etched into the wooden ship mirrors the seafaring affection of its captain. The ship provides 15 guest cabins each with air conditioning, shower and WC. A spacious living room suite on the quarterdeck and a sundeck with cushioned sleeping mats play a part in contributing to the welcoming atmosphere.

Catering:

The chef on board is a member of the crew and prepares the breakfast and one or two warm meals a day. The catering consists of 4 x full board and 3 x half board. Catering starts with the dinner on the arrival day and ends with the breakfast on the departure day.

Language:

The tour is conducted bilingually, in English and German.

    Individual arrival either by car to Trogir or by plane to Split. After checking in on the motor yacht between 2 and 2:30 pm at Trogir our first cruise starts at 3 pm leading us to Rogoznica - a village on a small island which is connected to the mainland by a dam. Here we also spend our first night.

    Vodice - Island of Murter - Nature Park Telašćica (aprx. 27 km/16 mi. by bicycle)

    In the morning we cycle from Vodice to Murter Island that is connected to the mainland by the lift bridge at Tisno.

Our destination is the Nature Park Telašcica. In the evening a walk through the park leads us along the stunning cliffs of the island.

Afterwards the ship takes us to Zadar, which, for centuries, was the political, cultural and spiritual centre of Dalmatia. Our tour guide takes us on an extensive walk through the lanes of the lively old centre. 3,000 years of history have left their imprint on the character of this town and there are many things to be admired: the mighty fortified walls with their bastions, the loggia but also the early Romanesque St. Donatus Basilica.
