This cruise by bike & boat to the national parks of Dalmatia takes you to the green areas of Croatia. On this comparatively easy tour you will experience breathtaking landscapes and sparsely populated islands. With your ship, you will sail comfortably through the Krka Fjord almost to the spectacular waterfalls in the Krka National Park. You will cross the beautiful Kornati National Park, in which countless small islands lie side by side. In addition to the beautiful nature experiences, you will also learn a lot about the culture and the historic past of the area and visit the most important architectural monuments in northern Dalmatia.

Highlights

Trogir
Trogir - a true pearl on the Dalmatian coast! The historic town centre is home to many historic buildings and the old town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Trogir

Rogoznica
The beautiful island of Rogoznica in Croatia is a true pearl on the Sibenik Riviera.
It is known for its stunning beaches, crystal clear waters and relaxed atmosphere.
The island has one of the most famous and safest harbours in the Adriatic, which is easily accessible due to its connection with the mainland, and a tiny salt lake known as the "dragon's eye", which is one of the island's natural attractions.

Rogoznica

Šibenik
The Croatian coastal town of Sibenik in Dalmatia, known for its numerous national parks, such as Krka Park, fortresses and islands, is a true jewel of the Croatian Adriatic coast.
In addition to the numerous sacred buildings such as the Cathedral of St. James, the palaces and the narrow, winding streets, the old town centre also boasts an impressive Republic of Croatia town square.

Krka National Park
The Krka National Park in Croatia is a true natural beauty with waterfalls cascading through the wooded landscape, hidden paths and small islands in the middle of the eponymous river.Along the Krka and the lakes you will find many old fortress ruins, mills and several monasteries. The Franciscan monastery on the island of Visovac deserves special mention. The island, which is approximately 1 hectare in size, was partly artificially filled in.

Kornati National Park
The Kornati National Park is an archipelago of 89 uninhabited islands, islets and reefs known for their high cliffs. This is the most indented archipelago in the Mediterranean.

The wooden motor yacht San Snova was launched in spring 2009 exclusively for the island hopping cruises. The comfortably furnished guest cabins have a tasteful interior as well as air conditioning and shower/toilet. The wood-panelled saloon exudes a cozy atmosphere, which is underlined by the high-quality wooden furniture

on the outer decks and a spacious sunbathing area on the sun deck. The crew of the San Snova attaches great importance to a sparkling clean appearance of the ship and genuine cordiality on board. Come on board and enjoy the incomparable atmosphere of this special wooden ship.

tour

You travel individually by car to Trogir or by plane to Split. After checking in between 2:00 and 2:30 p.m., the ship departs and takes you to Rogoznica, where you spend the first night.

After breakfast you start your day with a bike tour to Primošten. Here you will meet your motor yacht again, which will take you to the town of Šibenik. The Krka flows into the Adriatic Sea very close by. In Šibenik you will visit the famous cathedral and the picturesque old town before you set off again and continue through the lower course of the Krka to Skradin.

Today you explore the most famous part of the Krka National Park with its unique waterfalls by excursion boat and on foot. In the early afternoon you board the San Snova again and sail into the port of Vodice. In the afternoon you go on a leisurely bike tour on the Dalmatian mainland.

The morning starts with a bike ride to the island of Murter, which is connected to the mainland by a lifting bridge. You cycle through two old coastal towns and get back on board. Afterwards, take a drive through the Kornati National Park. Enjoy the view of the crystal clear water, which is known for its diverse underwater world. Arriving at your destination in Telašćica, take an evening stroll through the nature park along the island's impressive cliffs.

After breakfast you cycle from the Telašćica Nature Park on a panoramic road across the island. The views of the neighboring islands lying in the deep blue shimmering sea offer excellent photo opportunities. Your ship is waiting for you in Savar to take you to Zadar. Zadar has been the political, cultural and spiritual center of Dalmatia for centuries. Here your guide will lead you through the alleys of the old town. Discover 3000 years of history, the fortress wall with the defense towers, the loggia and the early Romanesque basilica of St. Donatus.

During breakfast your ship will take you to the island of Ugljan on the Zadar Canal. Today's program is to explore the two islands of Ugljan and Pašman. Both islands are connected by a bridge. You always cycle along the coast and enjoy the beautiful views of the sea and the opposite mainland. In the afternoon you continue by ship to Primošten and end the day with a swim in the sea.

Your ship departs in the morning and takes you to the island of Šolta. The streetscape is characterized by walled fields, countless olive groves, carob and fig trees. But the island is not only a pleasure for the eyes: the smell of rosemary is in the air, a wonderful silence reigns on the island. You cycle the last few kilometers to the village of Grohote, deeply relaxed. At noon you board for the last crossing and drive back to Trogir. In the evening you still have enough time to stroll through the medieval old town. Traditionally, the last evening before disembarkation is celebrated as a cheerful get-together of the guests and the crew and tour guide.

After breakfast at 09:00 in the morning your beautiful journey ends with disembarkation.

This tour takes place in parallel with mountain bike tours on the San Snova. There is a tour guide on board for both groups, so that you can ride independently of the mountain bikers on your trekking tour.

Due to different wind and weather conditions as well as organizational needs, we reserve the right to change the route.

Arrival by plane

Arriving by plane is the fastest, often cheapest and most comfortable way to get to Trogir. When booking your flight, please note that flights that land after 2:00 p.m. should only be booked in consultation with us. The nearest airport is Split (SPU). It is only 6 km away from the port in Trogir. To get from Split airport to the port in Trogir, we recommend using a taxi. A taxi ride costs around 20 euros. You can also use the regular bus number 37, which leaves right in front of the airport building towards Trogir and takes about 15 minutes. A bus ticket costs about 2.50 euros.

We can also organize a transfer for you from Split airport to Trogir port and back (price on request and only on embarkation/disembarkation day).

If you cannot find a suitable flight to Split, you have the option of flying to Dubrovnik or Zadar as an alternative, from where we can offer you an individual transfer (on request). You can research and book flight offers at www.opodo.com, www.skyscanner.de or www.swoodoo.com.

Arriving by car

Munich - Salzburg (130 km), Salzburg - Villach (180 km), Villach - Ljubljana (100 km), Ljubljana - Rijeka (130 km): Motorway behind Ljubljana to the Kozina exit, then continue on the country road to Rijeka. From Rijeka to Trogir: along the main road to Senj, there turn towards the motorway to Split (300 km, approx. 5 hours).

Parking options in Trogir:

In Trogir, we will be happy to organize a secure parking space for you on a private property near the port upon prior notification. Parking costs 50 euros per week, payable locally upon arrival. Please reserve the parking space in good time before you start your journey. Please note: There is no insurance in Croatia that insures your vehicle against theft and burglary in the parking spaces provided by us. Damage of this kind is only covered by the local comprehensive insurance. If you have booked a parking space, ask one of the tour guides at the ships when you arrive. He will guide you to a guide who will drive ahead of your car, guiding you safely to the parking lot. After you have parked your car, the pilot will take you back to the ship in his car.

Requirements

The tour is one of the lighter bike+boat tours in Croatia. The daily stages of 15 - 33 km lead through hilly and mountainous terrain (approx. 200 - 400 m ascent per day) and are cycled without time pressure. Steeper gradients only have to be overcome occasionally, but pushing them is definitely allowed. The roads are mostly paved and rarely used outside of the holiday season.

Decide for yourself every day whether you want to cycle individually (i.e. alone) according to information and maps or join one of the two tour guides or individual participants. Instead of a bike tour, you can also spend half or a whole day bathing on the ship. Helmets are compulsory on our bike tours. Please bring your own well fitting helmet. A limited number of rental helmets are available on the ships (pre-registration required).

On this trekking bike tour, the guided group pace is based on the trekking cyclists. If you rent an e-bike on a trekking tour, you are asked to be considerate of those who ride without electronic support. Trekking riders need more time and breaks when riding uphill. 

Available rental bikes

There are 24-speed trekking bikes available as women's (medium step-up) and men's bikes, as well as unisex electric bikes with 11-speed derailleur gears and a low step-through step, or somewhat sportier unisex 9-speed hybrid e-bikes with a slightly higher step-through step.

The bikes are each equipped with an Ortlieb pannier.

Meals

The accompanying cook is a member of the crew and prepares an extensive breakfast and one or two warm meals every day. It starts with dinner on embarkation day and ends with breakfast on disembarkation day. Depending on the course of the tour, one or the other lunch meal can also consist of a packed lunch. One meal a day is taken ashore and is not included in the tour price.

Children

Basically, we are of the opinion that only children with good stamina and a minimum age of 10 years can complete the bike tours on their own. Please note that rental bikes can only be provided from a height of 1.20 m. For children under the age of 16 there is also a legal obligation to wear a helmet in Croatia. Children's helmets cannot be borrowed.

Changes

Due to different wind and weather conditions as well as organizational needs, we reserve the right to change the route.

Taking your own e-bikes

It is not possible to take your own e-bike with you due to safety regulations on the ships and to protect the health of the tour guide. If you would like to ride an e-bike, we are happy to offer it to you for booking.

Extra costs that are not included in the tour price

Flat rate for drinking water on board and on the bike tours (payable on site to the captain): 25 euros per adult or 15 euros per child up to and including 16 years.

Drinks on board, meals and drinks ashore, entrance fees to attractions, tips for crew and guide

Passport and visa requirements

For EU citizens, there are no special passport or visa requirements and no health formalities to be considered for this trip.

Travel insurance

The tour price already includes the statutory insolvency insurance. In addition, we recommend that you take out travel cancellation insurance upon receipt of your travel confirmation in order to protect yourself against financial disadvantages in the event of travel cancellation, interruption of travel, illness or accident.
