Let yourself be enchanted by the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean and the impressively beautiful islands of Kvarner Bay on this cruise. An always cheerful crew awaits you on board one of the three motor sailers to pamper you. Discover some of the most beautiful islands in the Adriatic by bike and explore the islands of Krk, Rab and Cres with their secluded bays and historic town centers. A dip in the pleasantly cool waters of the Croatian Adriatic and relaxing hours on deck are a wonderful way to forget everyday life.

Highlights

Rijeka
Located at the northern end of the famous Kvarner Bay, the city of Rijeka is the perfect starting point for your bike & boat trip through the Kvarner Bay. In addition to a pretty old town with historical sights, Rijeka has a medieval fortress and several beautiful promenades by the sea.

Rijeka

Insel Krk
Krk is the largest island in the Adriatic. It is also known as Insula Aurea, or the Golden Island. Krk is known for its beautiful beaches and clear waters, but also for its karst landscapes and lush forests. The Krk wine region is known for the white wine variety Zlahtina, which is traditionally grown in the municipality of Vrbnik.

Insel Krk

Insel Rab
Die Insel Rab zählt zu den bekanntesten und beliebtesten Reisezielen der Deutschen und Österreicher und bietet eine erstaunliche landschaftliche Vielfalt, wunderschöne Stände, Kulturdenkmäler aus der vorrömischen Zeit und vieles mehr.

Insel Rab

Island Pag
The island of Pag is probably the most contrasting island in Croatia. Nowhere else in Croatia do scenic extremes meet so starkly. A place that polarizes people. It can be seen as Croatia's answer to Lanzarote.

Insel Pag

Island Losinj
The island is home to subtropical vegetation with palm trees, pines, agaves, oleanders, citrus trees, sage and lavender. With over 2500 hours of sunshine a year, which corresponds to around 300 cloudless or cloudless days, Losinj is one of the sunniest places in Europe.

Insel Losinj

Island and city of Cres
The picturesque island of Cres in the Kvarner Bay is one of the most popular vacation destinations in Croatia with its pristine rocky coves, inviting pebble beaches and charming fishing villages. Together with the neighboring island of Krk, Cres is the largest island in the Adriatic.

Tour

The journey to Rijeka is on your own and embarkation takes place between 11.00 and 12.00 in the port of Rijeka. You will be welcomed by the tour guide with a welcome drink and snack. In the afternoon, the ship will take you to Njivice on the island of Krk, where you will start your first bike tour. From Njivice you set off on a circular tour to Krk, the main town on the island.

After breakfast, today begins with a cycle tour inland to Čižići and on to the old town of Vrbnik, which is situated on a rock high above the coast. The climb is rewarded with a fantastic view! After your lunch break, cycle on towards Krk. Your boat is already waiting in the harbor there.

Today begins with a boat trip to Lopar in the north of the island of Rab. Here the bike tour begins via Supetarska Draga and Kampor to Rab with its four bell towers. After lunch on board, you will visit the Kalifront forest park. In the evening, you can take part in a guided tour of Rab and have dinner in a restaurant in the town.

Today, your boat will take you to the town on the northern tip of the island of Pag, an island full of contrasts: Sometimes barren landscapes, sometimes lush green meadows where sheep frolic. In the morning you go on an exciting cycle tour to Novalja and in the afternoon you cycle via Kolan to Mandre, where the boat is already waiting for you.

On the four-hour crossing to Mali Lošinj on the island of Lošinj, you can enjoy the sun and the passing landscapes in the air-conditioned saloon or on the sun deck. Today's bike tour takes you through extensive pine forests around Čikat Bay and through Sunčana Uvala (Sun Bay) to Veli Lošinj. It is only a few kilometers back to Mali Lošinj and its beautiful harbour, where you will spend the night. End the day with a walk through the alleys of the harbor town and the wide promenade.

Today you will get to know two islands at once - thanks to the lift bridge, you can cycle from Lošinj to Osor on the island of Cres, where a wonderful cycle tour via Belej and Stivan to the bay of Martinšćica awaits you. From there, the boat will take you to Cres town, the island capital of the same name.

On your last day on the bike, you cycle from Cres town to a viewpoint near the village of Predošćica. Let your gaze wander over the unique landscapes one last time before you cycle back to the boat and sail back to your starting point of Rijeka. On the way, you can take another dip in the beautiful waters of the Adriatic and reflect on your vacation and the hours spent on the bike, the boat and the fascinating landscape.

Today your bike & boat trip through the Kvarner Bay ends after breakfast. Let the kitchen crew spoil you one last time before disembarking at 09:00. Afterwards you will start your individual journey home or transfer to the airport.

Arrival by flight


You can fly to Rijeka Airport, which, like the port of embarkation Omisalj, is located on the island of Krk. Flight offers can be researched and booked at www.opodo.com or www.swoodoo.com or www.eurowings.com or www.tuifly.com, for example. If there are no flights to Rijeka, you can also fly to Zagreb Airport. We are happy to offer a transfer from the airport to the ship on embarkation day and a return transfer from the ship to the airport on disembarkation day. We will be able to inform you of the prices for this at the beginning of 2023, when the transfer can also be booked.
When booking your flight, please note that the ship usually departs Rijeka between 11:00 and 12:00. It may therefore be advisable to arrive in Rijeka a day earlier in order to embark the following day in a relaxed manner.

Arrival by car


From Frankfurt via Munich - Salzburg - Villach - Ljubljana - Koper to Pula and on to Rijeka. To enter Croatia, you will need your driver's license, vehicle registration document and the green insurance card for the vehicle. In Rijeka, we will be happy to organize a guarded long-term parking space for you by prior reservation. The parking lot costs approx. 70.00 euros per week and must be booked and paid for together with the tour.


Arrival by train


There is a good connection with the night train from Munich to Rijeka. This arrives in Rijeka at around 09:00. Please ask us for a transfer from the train station to the ship and back, the transfer price is also only fixed from the beginning of 2023 and on request.

Available rental bikes


There are 21-speed trekking bikes for men and women and electric bikes available. The bikes are each equipped with a pannier bag and a water bottle holder. You will also receive a bicycle helmet - please let us know your head circumference when booking.


Requirements


The cycling stages require participants to have a certain basic level of fitness, which regular cyclists have generally acquired. The routes are between 340 and 740 meters high. The daily stages of 20 - 55 km lead through hilly and mountainous terrain and are cycled without time constraints. Steeper or longer climbs are also to be mastered, but pushing is permitted. The tour guides will inform you in good time.


The roads are mostly asphalted and not very busy outside the vacation periods. Decide for yourself each day whether you want to cycle individually according to the maps or join one of the two tour guides.
Instead of a cycle tour, you can also take a half or full day of swimming on the boat. Helmets are compulsory for children under the age of 18 on the cycle tours. For safety reasons, we generally recommend wearing a helmet.

 

Children
Due to the challenging stages, we do not recommend this trip for children.
Up to the age of 14 years and in a triple cabin with 2 full-paying adults, we grant a child discount of 50%.
