The island of Brač is famous for its brilliant white limestone, which was used in the construction of the White House in Washington and the Reichstag in Berlin, among other things. You will cycle from picturesque Pučišća, home to one of Croatia's most famous sculpture schools, to Bol. The famous "Golden Horn", one of the most beautiful beaches in Croatia, is very close by. If you wish, you can take a refreshing dip here before the MS Harmonia takes you to the island of Hvar in the port of Jelsa, where you spend the night.

Today you cycle across the island of Hvar. Enjoy wonderful views, the vast lavender fields and small villages before you reach the island capital of Hvar. Marvel at the magnificent Renaissance square and the Spanish fortress towering above the town. In the late afternoon, cross over to the island of Vis. You will also spend the night there today.

The island of Vis is the furthest inhabited island in Croatia from the mainland. A Greek colony called Issa was founded on the island 2300 years ago. In the afternoon, you will explore the beautiful island by bike. From the town of Vis, you cycle once around the entire island with a coffee stop in the harbor of Komiza and a traditional lunch on the way. After your bike tour, it's time to cast off and take your boat to Vela Luka on the island of Korčula. You will spend the night in Vela Luka tonight.

Overnight stay in Korčula town.

During breakfast, your ship leaves the island of Korčula and crosses over to the Pelješac peninsula to Orebić. Pelješac is recognizable from afar by the impressive, 1,000 m high Sv. Ilija mountain range. The famous local wines Plavac and Dingač come from this unique wine-growing region, whose steep mountain slopes are covered with vineyards.

Your ship awaits you in Sobra and it's time to cast off once again for the last crossing of this eventful week.

Requirements

The cycling stages require the participants to have a certain level of fitness, which regular cyclists usually have. The routes go up between 400 - 700 meters. The daily stages of 30 - 60 km lead through hilly and mountainous terrain and are cycled without time pressure. Steeper or longer gradients can also be mastered, but pushing is definitely allowed. Instead of a bike tour, you can also spend half a day or a whole day on the ship. Please note that helmets are compulsory on the bike tours! Please bring your own well fitting helmet. A limited number of rental helmets are available on board, but must be reserved in advance.

Basically, on our e-bike & boat trips there is also the possibility to take part in the day tours with a trekking bike. However, the guided group pace is based on the e-bike riders. Anyone who rides a trekking bike on an e-bike trip should not be surprised at the faster basic speed. Trekking cyclists should also have the necessary condition to ride at this speed. Thank you for your understanding.

Available rental bikes

There are 11-gear women's e-bikes with a low entry (please state your preference in the comments and questions box when booking). Likewise 24-speed trekking bikes as women's and men's bikes. Since the trip is an e-bike tour, the group pace is adapted to the e-bike riders, so we recommend renting e-bikes.

The bikes are each equipped with an Ortlieb pannier.

Catering

The accompanying cook is a member of the crew and prepares an extensive breakfast and one or two warm meals every day. Meals include 2 x full board and 5 x half board. Meals begin with dinner on the day of embarkation and end with breakfast on the day of disembarkation.

Discounts

If the cabins are occupied by three, we grant a third person (e.g. a child) a 50% discount on the basic tour price. Children up to and including 16 years of age receive a discount of 25% on the basic tour price (cannot be combined with the 50% discount).

Children

We believe that only children in a good physical condition and with a minimum age of 10 and previous bicycle tour experience are able to master the cycle tours on their own strength. Please note that the minimum height for a rental bike is 1.20 m (4 ft.) for hybrid bicycles and 1.50 m (4.5 ft.) for e-bikes. There is a helmet duty for all children up to age 16 in Croatia.

Itinerary changes

We reserve the right to make changes to the planned itinerary due to changing wind and weather conditions as well as organizational requirements. If necessary the tour will be operated in reverse.

Bringing your own electric bike

It is not possible to bring your own e-bike on the ship as a safety measure and to protect the health of the guides. If you want to ride an e-bike, we can offer this for booking.

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