  • Daily program

    Day 1: Split (optional 12 miles/20 km, up to 50 miles/80 km)
    Welcome to Split! Depending on your arrival time we will fit bikes, have a tour briefing, and suggest easy loop ride along Marjan hill starting from your hotel, located in the very center of town. In the evening we urge you to explore 1700 years old Palace of Diocletian, inscribed into UNESCO World Heritage list, the Peristyle, Romanesque houses, experience every day’s life, ancient fish market and fishermen.
    Overnight in Split

    Day 2: Island Brac (16 miles/25 km, up to 50 miles/80 km)
    Today you take 45-minute ferry ride to Island Brac, located just in front of Split. Various riding options and distances, from easy 25 km to big 80km+ loop rides, visiting Greece and Roman ruins, fisherman villages, wine cellars and art galleries. Island Brac is famous for its stone – the White house in Washington and Diocletian’s palace are just some sites that were built with that stone! All the ancient villages and towns on Brac are kind of an exhibition of fine stonework! Return to Split with the late afternoon ferry.
    Overnight in Split

    Day 3: Lavender roads, UNESCO sites and Hvar Town (12 miles/20 km, up to 37 miles/60 km)
    Welcome to island Hvar! For the morning ride we suggest easy ride around the UNESCO site of Stari Grad. Stari Grad (Old town) is an ancient Greek colony dating back to 400 B.C. Besides historical sites you will discover quite charming towns and roads where you will be biking, passing next to private gardens, along the coast and olive groves. For the afternoon bike ride, take the famous and probably most beautiful road along the lavender fields to reach town Hvar.
    Overnight in Hvar town

    Day 4: Korcula Island (29 miles/46 km, up to 35 miles/56 km)
    After the private boat transfer, start with your bike ride on island Korcula, about 46 kilometers to the town of Korcula. Island was very early populated; even before Greek times and evidence can bee see on your ride! During its history, it was chosen by Venetians as a spot to build their important walled city on the northern shores of the island. Therefore, nowadays, thanks to that, we have the most magnificent walled Korcula old town still preserved and almost intact for centuries where you sleep for the next 2 nights.

    Enjoy the scenic south side of the island, with amazing views on beautiful hidden beaches and coves, ride along the small villages and hamlets and stop in some of the few great local konoba (taverns) for most amazing locally prepared food!
    Overnight in Korcula

    Day 5: Korcula Beaches and Vineyards (22 miles/36 km, up to 35 miles/56 km)
    As you stay for another day in Korcula take a chance to explore the island of Korcula; its hidden coves, beautiful old towns, unique small villages and dark pine forests that cover the island. There are few loop options today. Whatever you choose, you will be making your way past vineyards, olive groves and along the beautiful coast of the island. Taste the traditional food; like homemade gnocchi, homemade macaroni, pašticada, and other meals which have been traditionally prepared by the locals for centuries. Some of the best Croatian white wines are produced on this island, which will just add flavor to your lunch or dinner. Did we mention Marco Polo was born here and started his life journey from Korcula?
    Overnight in Korcula

    Day 6: Departure
    Today after breakfast we will transfer you to Dubrovnik where the tour ends. You may want to extend your stay in Dubrovnik and explore the historical sites along the Magnificent walls that surround the old town.

      Never would we have ever dreamed !

      This tour is the best way to see all the Croatia has to offer, mountains to the coastline and everything in between! Get up close and personal with the Croatian history that dates back to 300 BC. We were on San Snova the boat was very comfortable and space for everyone to spread out. The crew made it even more special ! Tending to our every want and need ! Everyone should have an Andro in their life at least once! There was always plenty of tasty food you won't lose any weight on this active vacation. Our guides (Ivan and Helena) were very knowledgable. They always got us safely to the best spots. They were very proud of their home country and happy to share all of it with us. The visit to the bee keeper, lunch on the local farm,city tours,winery and white water rafting trips were among our favorites besides the cycling of course. The cycling is challenging you start at sea level and go up from there to a beautiful view point. The e-bike was a lifesaver and allowed for an enjoyable cycling experience. Never would we have ever dreamed we would have a trip like this one !

      Croatia At Its Best

      Extremely well organized; guides were knowledgeable and clearly loved Croatia. Bikes were comfortable and the day trips offered stunning vistas. The lunch at the organic farm was like something featured in Bon Appetit. White water rafting was an added bonus. The boat crew were courteous and professional; room was small but comfortable. Nothing but positive memories.

      Dream Tour

      We have done about 10 bike tours in Europe, so we have seen and experienced a wide range of things. This tour was wonderful. The tour company was extremely organized, the tour was well-designed, the hotels were great. In addition to the maps and instructions, the tour company made many valuable recommendations for things to see, restaurants, etc. There are several serious but not terrible climbs (~400 m elevation) on the tour, which people should be aware of. They yield amazing views.

      A great way to see Croatia

      Meridian Ten is the local company that built and ran the tour. Our hotels were first class and all the bag transfers and water taxis were flawless. The bikes weren’t new but were well maintained and worked without any problems. Tom met us at our start point and gave us a briefing and a book describing all the suggested routes and options, There are also recommendations for dining and other activities in the book that came in handy.

      Great ride with great food and even better scenery

      I am just back from my trip to Europe which included an altered bike tour from Dubrovnik to Split. I had shortened the trip to 4 days so to fit my other plans in Italy. What a mistake! Mistake 1. Make sure you have time to tour and visit Dubrovnik. We arrived in the late afternoon and had no time to visit the old city. It looked gorgeous as we passed it in a bus from the airport. Our hotel was very nice but a way from the old city. Mistake 2. Make plans to see the walls in Ston. They are stunning. Mistake 3. I dropped the extra day in Hvar. Lots to do in this fun packed town especially if you like the night life. Only spent about three hours in Split and it was very hectic compared to the other towns. Overall, what a ride! There are a number of climbs each day so the rating of 3 out of 5 should be closer to 4 out of 5. The route has limited traffic so safety is not a concern. The pre-ride prep on site was excellent. The bikes were in good order.

      Canada meets Croatia!

      Croatia is a beautiful, welcoming country with so much to offer travelers from all over. The people, sights, cuisine and water (both drinking and swimming) of Croatia will not disappoint. BikeTours helped us have a see the country we wanted easily! If you are a 'recreational' rider I would highly recommend their e-bikes. There are some serious climbs and we were thankful for them daily! If you're a veteran, serious rider you're going to get the workout you're looking for. The hotels were all awesome, we felt spoiled and appreciated at each stop and our luggage was always there well ahead of our arrival. It was easy, fun and all in all a trip to remember! Put this part of the world at the top of your must see places!

      Best Possible organization!

      Aside from the beautiful scenery of Croatia, Tomislav and the folks at Meridien Ten travel provided really outstanding material for our self-guided tours. The route sheets were easy to follow and much clearer than I have seen on other tours, and all the arrangements were faultless. Also, our group had some complications during the first day, and Tomislav went out of his way to help us out. This involved some extra driving on his part and when I attempted to at least pay for the gasoline, and he refused. Really fabulous folks - I definitely recommend traveling with them in Croatia. The only thing I would change was the selection of the hotel Lacroma in Dubrovnik - for me this hotel was too large and crowded. The front desk was overwhelmed with tour groups and could not keep things straight.

      Amazing Trip With Lots of Hills

      Our Croatian adventure exceeded all expectations! The routes were very scenic, the locals were so friendly, and the food was delicious and totally fresh! We've done several bike trips in Europe, and this was definitely one of our favorites.

      We paid a little more for the hotels and were very pleased with the accommodations. The breakfasts were very generous, and the rooms were spacious and clean. Hotel staff was great at all locations, too. There were two nights at each hotel, which was nice, since we weren't constantly packing and unpacking.

      Our booking experience was great. There were 8 in our party, with all different itineraries, and everyone signed up at different times, which created hotel booking challenges. Brittany was so patient and answered all of our emails promptly. Most of us needed to add nights onto the basic package, and Brittany took care of that for us, too.

      I can't say enough good things about the local tour company. We were self-guided, but when we ran into a little trouble on our first day (someone in our group fell off the bike), the local company was incredibly responsive and there when we needed them. There was constant communication throughout the trip, and they made sure everything went smoothly. Our luggage was transferred without incident and was always waiting for us in our room at the end of our travel days.

      The directions on the route sheets were easy to follow, and with odometers on all the bikes, we never really got lost (which is a first for us). Having a choice of rides on most days, and the details on restaurants and points of interest in each of the towns we passed through made the rides even more enjoyable. The bikes were comfortable and everything we needed was supplied: tire repair kits, spare tubes, pumps, locks, etc. The collapsible panniers were awesome and transported wine very nicely!

      The only negative thing I could say about the trip is that we were on main roads more than I would have liked. On previous trips to Italy and France, there were more back road options. But there wasn't a whole lot of traffic, and the cars generally gave us a comfortable amount of space when passing. The ride was definitely hillier and more difficult than we expected from a difficulty rating of 3, but the uphills weren't too steep and they were definitely worth it for the views!
