With our first class ship you can experience the greenest part of Croatia for one week: Not only the famous national parks of Dalmatia like Krka and Kornati or the nature park of Telašćica are part of this wonderful tour but also the medieval old towns of Šibenik, Zadar and Trogir. We also visit Dugi Otok – probably the most beautiful Middle-Dalmatian Island.

This tour is part of the Plus-Program providing greatest possible comfort due to the offered space and a luxurious furnishing. On this tour one of our proud boats either Magellan or Melody are your comfortable home. Roomy and elegantly designed cabins include bathrooms with separate shower cubicles, and a wide sundeck with plenty of space to relax on as well as a spacious, stylish designed salon invite you to enjoy the cruise.

The ship – Your sailing hotel
In between cycling excursions, you cruise along with the ship, which travels to a new destination every day. You dine, sleep and eat breakfast on board. You’ll receive a packed lunch every day, and you can usually choose between a longer or shorter bike ride. It’s also possible to spend a day on board if you like. There are rental bikes on board, but you can also bring your own if you mention it when booking.

Day to day program

All distances are “approximate distances” of recommended bike tours.

We reserve the right to make changes to the planned route due to changing wind and weather conditions, and where required by organizational necessities. The tour can also been operated in reverse order.

Day 1: Trogir (embarkation) – Rogoznica

Individual arrival by car to Trogir or by plane to Split airport, which is about 3 mi./ 6 km away from the harbor of Trogir. After checking in on the motor yacht (between 2 and 2.30 p.m.) we leave Trogir around 3 p.m. During the crossing to Rogoznica the fresh sea breeze can be enjoyed. Later in the afternoon there is time to adjust the bicycles.

Day 2: Rogoznica – Vodice – Slanica – Nature Park Telašcica (aprx. 16 mi./27 km)

In the morning the boat takes us to Vodice. We go for our first cycle tour starting at the popular resort and soon we cross the bridge to the island of Murter. In Slanica, in the Northwest of the island the boat awaits us for the cross over to the island of Dugi Otok. On our way we pass the National Park Kornati – an archipelago in crystal clear water which is known for its rich underwater world. Our destination is the deeply incised Telašćica Bay. In the local nature park the Mir salt lake is situated. At the end of the day we take a short hike to the impressive cliffs before taking a short crossing by boat to the small seaside village of Sali for the night.

Day 3: Island Dugi Otok – Zadar (aprx. 30 mi /48 km)

We start our ride from Sali along the almost traffic free island of Dugi Otok. The ride is panorama pure and our destination is the budding village of Božava, surrounded by pine forests, Tamarisks and Agaves. In Božava the boat awaits our arrival and we cast off for Zadar which for centuries was the absolute political, cultural and intellectual center of Dalmatia. The guide takes us on a walk through the lively city and shows us the fascinating facets of this extraordinary outdoor museum. Over 3,000 years characterize the city. As we walk we will learn of the city and its colorful past. Overnight stay in Zadar.

Day 4: Zadar – Island Ugljan and Pasman – Vodice (aprx. 20.5 mi./33 km)

The two islands are connected by a bridge from which the first of the Kornati Islands can be seen. We cycle along the east coast of the island, constantly in vicinity of the sea with views of the mainland. Once we arrive in Tkon, we board the boat and cross over to Vodice, a populare Dalmatian holiday destination on the mainland where we will spend the night.

Day 5: Vodice – Skradin (aprx. 22 mi./35 km)

A scenic tour leads us from Vodice along quiet roads through quiet villages of the Dalmatian hinterland to the beautiful city of Skradin at the foot of the Krka Canyon.

Day 6: Krka-Waterfalls – Šibenik – Primošten

After breakfast it is time to discover the unique naturally formed waterfalls of the national park of the Krka-Canyon.

Good to know
  • Itinerary changes We reserve the right to make changes to the itinerary, depending on wind and weather conditions or organizational requirements. Sometimes the tour will be conducted in reverse order. You will find further details in your booking information package.
  • Language Due to our international audience all Islandhopping tours are conducted bilingually, in English and German.
  • E-Bike Level 1 / Hybrid Bike Level 2 Our cycle tours fit for both: hybrid and e-bikers. You have to decide beforehand, which bicycle you like to rent, if you decide to rent one. 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).
  • Requirements for hybrid bikers (level 2): The bicycle tours require a basic level of fitness from participants, which they should have acquired from steady cycling. The cycling tours fit in equal measure to cyclists with hybrid bikes or E-bikes. If a rental bike is used, you are kindly requested to decide either on a hybrid bike or on an E-bike before commencement of travel. The tours take you up to a height of between 200 and 500 m above sea-level. The daily tours from 15 to 31 mi./25 to 50 km lead you through hilly and mountainous terrain and will be completed without any time-constraints. Participants also need to master long and steep climbs. Streets are mostly asphalted and less traffic occurs during the off seasons.
  • Requirements for e-bikers (level 1):  E-bike tours suitable for Islandhoppers with a good basic level of fitness. The tours and the elevation meters are very manageable with an e-bike (30-60km and 400-700 elevation meters per day).
  • Guided group pace: 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. Thank you for your understanding.
  • Bringing Children We believe that only children with a good physical condition and previous bicycle tour experience and a minimum age of 10 are able to master the cycle tours with 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 (5 ft.) for e-bikes. In Croatia there is a helmet duty for all children up to age 16.
  • Catering The on-board chef 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.
  • Our ships Please do not forget that the ship is your hotel as well as a machine, which has to be maintained and operated – day and night. A certain level of noise is therefore inevitable.

Good trip. Nice boat and good guides. This trip was less biking than I expected and more sailings and free time. No real negatives other than it is different than expected. You really only go one one National Park ride / hike. The rest of the rides were just through small villages or inland. I did the southern tour before…
