Enjoy cycling the Dalmatian region: Split, its surroundings, and the islands of Šolta, Brač, and Hvar. During the entire self-guided bike tour you will be accommodated in Split, where you can walk along its long palm-fringed waterfront, enjoy trendy bars, great local konoba (taverns) and check out every day’s local lifestyle in the evenings.
Each day you will be able to choose from easy coastal rides to climbs up to 700m with various cycling distances from 6-50 miles (10-80km). Discover Greek, Roman, Venetian heritage and learn about Croatian culture. Taste great olive oil and wine, enjoy the Mediterranean cuisine, which is considered as the healthiest one in the world!
Discover the island of Brač, Croatia’s third largest, but also the highest island in the Adriatic Sea. Brač is famous for fishing and agriculture, especially vines and olives, as well as its precious limestone, which was used to build Diocletian’s Palace in Split and the White House in Washington.
Pedal along rural and quiet roads of the island of Šolta. On this island, you will step back in time, as there are no big hotels, no modern buildings... just simple traditional life. Discover ancient villages and coastal roads on the island of Hvar, the UNESCO world heritage site of Stari Grad, and bike along lavender fields to reach Hvar town.
Did we forget to say that Split is one of the oldest Roman towns in the Adriatic? Built by Roman emperor Diocletian in 3rd century A.D. as his luxury retreat, Split became over the course of history a vivid town which invites you to explore its natural beauties, sights and vibrant nightlife!
We highly suggest traveling in spring (the end of March till end of June) or fall (September till the end of November) for serious biking (daily distance of 50km or more). If biking is not the only reason for choosing this tour, the swimming season usually starts later in May and can last until the middle of October. Even in the high season months of July and August, you will be able to find your own little private beach on the islands you will be visiting and quiet roads for cycling. However, due to the heat you might want to schedule your bike rides early in the morning or later in the afternoon.
