The region’s rich history can be found in its historical cities with ancient ruins. Dalmatia’s rich and varied cuisine is flavored with regional spices, honey, and herbs, making for delightful meals at the end of a day’s cycling.

Why cyclists love it

Cycling has been popular in Croatia for more than a century because it was once the quickest means of transport across the rugged terrain. Today, cycling remains popular for tourists to Croatia as an easy and active way to see the beautiful countryside.

Cycle tours in Dalmatia are of varying difficulty and are good for families with children, first-timers, or advanced cyclists looking for a challenge. There are also tours for those interested in road biking or mountain biking. Some bicycle tours in Dalmatia include lodging on boats, which is a great way to see what islands have to offer or to speed your way along the coast. You can cycle in national parks and historic villages during the day and meet your “floating hotel” at the end of the day.

Summers are long and a great time to take advantage of sunshine and good weather in Dalmatia—with plenty of chances to jump in the sea. Late spring and early autumn also offer fine cycling in a moderate climate.
