Dalmatian Islands require serious bike endurance

2 Sep 2015

Mulliez (France)

Romantica boat is ideal for biking vacations in Dalmatian Islands . But the description on the web site and brochures does not precise enough the biking experience requirements. Several members of our team had hard time to climb the 400 to 700m elevation per day. The guides did not know the route well and could not give precise informations the day before. They had not a detailled map to show the climbing % of the road ( 4 to 10%) . The map provided to us did not show the elevation of the summit of road neither the % of slope. Hopefully E’bikes were proposed but it takes some time to get full benefit of the help.

Thanks for your review. On our new website, we will tell more about the biking requirements. We asked our partner forfeedback, (that's why you had to wait 2 weeks before we answered back to you). You can read their comments here below: Our daily tour maps are simple maps that show the island as an overview with our give path. Because we are with two guides, our maps do not go into high detail. IF guests want to cycle on their own then we offer proper GPS and map equipment. We plan to add the meters of elevation to the maps but it is very difficult on the islands to stay to the same tour every week because of wind and weather. IF we suddenly have to change harbours then the printed information dosnt have any value anymore, therefore we have our briefing after the mealtimes to prepare the guests for the planned tour. With meters of elevation and KMs announced. It all takes place a bit differently when you are making plans on the Adriatic.
