On this South Dalmatia Deluxe Bike & Boat tour, you discover the exceptional natural beauty of the South Dalmatian coastline and island world on board an elegant First Class motor yacht.

A true cultural insight. This tour offers guests a PLUS all-round: a comfortable First Class motor yacht, unlimited e-bike availability, as well as some pleasant surprises along the way.
First Class Ship: The first class ship exudes elegance at 48.5m long and 8.5m wide. Launched in 2019, this is the youngest ship in the Island hopping fleet. The 18 spacious and air-conditioned guest cabins are characterized by their classy interior including a private bathroom with a shower and WC. The gracious saloon is perfect for mealtimes and for social situations. A vast sun deck with recliners and comfortable lounge furniture on the upper deck provide a great space for a relaxed holiday experience. A whirlpool takes center stage on the sun deck and the swimming platform at the stern give guests the chance to refresh themselves on anchor as well as during the cruise.
Delux ship: The deluxe ship is an elegant two-masted motor yacht that remains pleasantly steady even when sailing through heavier swells. On board you will find spacious guest cabins with air-conditioning and a personal shower/WC. The beautifully furnished saloon and bar as well as the covered aft deck are fitted out with comfortable seating areas. On the spacious sun deck, you will find deckchairs, enticing you to lie back, relax and enjoy the warm sea breeze. The swimming platform at the stern ensures easy access to the glistening waters for a refreshing dip. Delicious cuisine is particularly important on this ship: The ship’s owner is a member of the cooking academy for traditional Dalmatian cuisine and the owner of a restaurant on the island of Hvar, known far beyond the borders of Croatia for its excellent dishes. It goes without saying that he also implements these high culinary standards on his motor yacht. Meals on board can likewise be enjoyed with an exquisite selection of Croatian wines.

Cycle tours fit both hybrid and e-bikers. You have to decide beforehand, which bicycle you like to rent, if you decide to rent one. The cycle tours require at least basic level of fitness from participants, which they should have acquired from steady cycling. The tours will take us up to a height of 200 to 650 m above sea-level. The day-tours from 12 to 37.5 mi. (20 to 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, during which they are, however, also permitted to push their bicycles. We traverse mostly asphalted roads, which are rarely frequented outside the holiday seasons. You are free to set aside a half or full day to swim or to 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).
On our e-bike tour programs, the riding pace is determined by the cyclists on e-bikes. Guests who are taking part on these tours on a regular bicycle should have the necessary physical condition to keep up with this pace. We thank you for your understanding.
We believe that only children in a good physical condition and with a minimum age of 10 and previous bicycle tour experience are able to master the cycle tours on their own strength. Please note that the minimum height for a rental bike is 1.20 m (4 ft.) for hybrid bikes and 1.50 m (4.5 ft.) for e-bikes. There is a helmet duty for all children up to age 16 in Croatia.
