Split to Dubrovnik 8-day Bike and Boat Tour around the South Dalmatian islands

If you would like to experience the region of South Dalmatia thoroughly, not wanting to do without Dubrovnik and its amazing city walls, this sail and cycle trip is an excellent choice. Accompanied by our charming motor yacht, we get to know this sparsely populated part of Croatia. Breathtaking scenic experiences and cultural highlights await you. The highlights of the trip are the town centre of Dubrovnik and Split which are listed as UNESCO’s world heritage sites. We cycle the islands of Mljet, Lastovo, Korčula, Hvar and Brač and experience the interaction of sea and land, culture and nature close up and personally.

Accommodation:

Premium Ship (all cabins with shower/toilet): the ship was built in 2008., an elegant two mast motor yacht is 29 m long and 7 m wide. It has 14 comfortable guest cabins with shower/WC and air conditioning as well as a spacious salon and a comfortable sun deck. Access to the sea is uncomplicated via a bathing platform at the stern of the ship and guarantees unlimited bathing pleasure.

Tour character: Level 2–3

The cycle tours require an advanced level of fitness. The tours will take us up to a height of 200 - 500 m above sea-level. The day-tours up to 37 mi./60 km will take us through hilly and mountainous terrain and will be completed without any time-constraints. Participants will also need to master long and steep climbs. You are free to set aside a half or full day to swim or spend time on board the boat, instead of taking a planned cycle-tour. Helmet use is mandatory on all cycle tours. You are strongly encouraged to bring your own (well-fitted) helmet. Rental helmets are available in limited numbers (reservation requested).
