Tour

Arrival to Rijeka is on your own and embarkation takes place between 11:00 and 12:00 in the port of Rijeka. There will be a welcome by the tour guide with 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 cycling tour. From Njivice you will start a round trip to Krk, the main town of the island.

After breakfast, today begins with a bike ride inland to Čižići and further to the old town of Vrbnik, situated on a rock high above the coast. The climb is rewarded with a great view! After the lunch break, you will continue cycling towards Krk. There your ship is already waiting in the harbor.

Today begins with a boat ride to Lopar in the north of the island of Rab. Here begins the bike tour 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 join a guided tour of Rab and have dinner in a restaurant in town.

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

During the four-hour crossing to Mali Lošinj on the island of Lošinj, enjoy the sun and the passing landscapes in the air-conditioned salon or even on the sun deck. Today's bike tour leads through extensive pine forests around Čikat Bay and through Sunčana Uvala (Sun Bay) to Veli Lošinj. Back to Mali Lošinj and its beautiful harbor, where you will spend the night, it is only a few more kilometers. End the day with a walk through the alleys of the port 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, here a beautiful cycling tour through 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 will ride from Cres town to a viewpoint near the village of Predošćica. Let your eyes wander once again over the unique landscapes before you cycle back to the ship and sail to the starting point Rijeka. On the way you can take another plunge into the beautiful Adriatic Sea and reflect on your vacation and the hours spent on the bike, the boat and the fascinating landscape.

Today your Rad&Schiff journey through the Kvarner Bay ends after breakfast. Let the kitchen crew spoil you one last time before the departure until 9:00 am. Afterwards you start your individual journey home or transfer to the airport.

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