Description

Day 1: Island of Krk – Island of Cres (16 mi./25 km; 1,640 ft./500 m of elevation)
Individual arrival in Omišalj on the island of Krk. Check in on the ship starting from 1 pm. The boat leaves the harbour at 3 pm and takes us to Porozina, the ferry port on the island of Cres. From here we start our first cycling tour which leads us through the idyllic, mountain village of Predošcica and then on to the city of Cres. In the evening, your guide leads a walking tour through the old Venetian style town.

Day 2: Islands of Cres and Lošinj (53 mi./85 km; 4,800 ft./1,450 m of elevation)
Today’s tour takes us from Cres City to Lubenice and then on to Osor. This small artist town has been inhabited since Roman times and is connected to the island of Lošinj by a swing bridge. Here you can find out where Croatia currency got its name from. Next, we bike on to the picturesque port of Veli Lošinj, a small harbour with numerous fishing boats and the mighty Church of St. Anton. Here there is enough time for an ice cream and a coffee before we continue on to Mali Lošinj.

Day 3: Island of Dugi Otok (34 mi./55 km; 2,300 ft./700 m of elevation)
The herb island of Dugi Otok is one of the highlights of this trip. We cross the entire island on a fantastic, almost car-free road. Incredible views of the island landscape and the deep, blue surrounding sea will not cease to amaze you. We begin today’s tour in Božava and make a very worthwhile detour to the lighthouse of Veli Rat on the northernmost point of the island. We finish the day’s ride in the village of Sali, at the southernmost point of the island. In the afternoon, there is a further, optional tour to the Telašćica Nature Park.

Day 4: Murter – Biograd – Zadar (75 mi./120 km; 3,300 ft./1.000 m of elevation)
Today we begin our tour from a lonely jetty on the island of Murter heading first towards Šibenik and then on to Skradin. Later, the tour takes us around Vrana Lake, Croatia’s largest freshwater reservoir, and on to Biograd. Here, our ship collects us to sail on towards Zadar in the afternoon, a city rich in both culture and historical heritage. In the evening, our guide gives a tour through the interesting old town of Zadar with its world-famous sea organ and “Greeting to the Sun”.

Day 5: Zadar – Island of Pag – Island of Rab (69 mi./110 km; 3,300 ft./1.000 m of elevation)
From Zadar our bike tour takes us to Nin, whose history dates back to the Roman times. The old town, situated on an island, is home to the smallest cathedral in the world, the Church of the Holy Cross, built around 800 AD. Our tour then leads us on to the island of Pag, famous for its excellent cheese and saltpans. Already in the Roman times, salt was extracted here. Over the centuries, the people who lived here built numerous stone walls to protect them from the wind throughout the rugged yet charming landscape. The ship picks us up in Lun and we sail to the island of Rab, whose four famous bell towers characterize this beautiful city.

Day 6: Islands of Rab and Krk (16 mi./25 km; 820 ft./250 m of elevation)
The island of Rab is one of the sunniest places in Europe. Today we begin by taking a relaxed tour to the town of Lopar which lies in the north of the island. Here, the ship awaits to take us to the historical town of Krk, the capital of the homonym island. Here we can unwind. In the afternoon, we have time to relax after the efforts of the previous days and recharge our batteries for tomorrow’s final tour. In the evening, our guide will offer a tour through the captivating old town with the impressive Frankopan Castle and the cathedral of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Day 7: Island of Krk (62 mi./100 km; 5,600 ft./1.700 m of elevation)
From Krk we cycle to Stara Baška and then across the island to Vrbnik, an old pirates nest perched on a clifftop overlooking the sea. While here, make sure not to miss the second narrowest street in the world! Our journey then continues through the interior of the island before we finally head back to the sea to Klimno, where the nearby Bay of Soline is the perfect spot for a healthy mud bath. Our last destination for the day is the harbour of Omišalj. Here we end our eventful journey with a final meal on board followed by an evening with crew, guests and tour guides.

Day 8: Omišalj
After breakfast disembarkation until 9 am and individual trip back home or extended stay in Croatia.
