tour description

The island world of Dalmatia Deluxe

During this trip you will experience the Krka and Kornati National Parks and the Telašćica Nature Park. You stay on the deluxe ship Magellan and visit the medieval towns of Šibenik, Zadar and Trogir. The entire journey takes you through the magical island world of Dalmatia with wonderful views and nature experiences.

Deluxe Ship Magellan

The Magellan is an elegant, extremely seaworthy two-masted motor yacht, which lies pleasantly calm in the water even when the waves are rough. Spacious guest cabins with air conditioning and shower cabin/toilet are available on board. The tastefully furnished saloon with bar and the covered aft deck are equipped with comfortable seating. On the wide sun deck you will find sun loungers that invite you to relax and enjoy. You can also bathe in the sea in a very comfortable way from the bathing platform at the stern. Great value is placed on good cuisine on the Magellan: the ship's owner is a member of the cooking academy for traditional Dalmatian cuisine and the owner of a restaurant on the island of Hvar, which is known beyond the borders of Croatia for its excellent cuisine. It goes without saying that he also implements these high culinary standards on his motor yacht. You can also look forward to an exquisite selection of Croatian wines.

1. day Trogir (embarkation) - Rogoznica

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

2. day Rogoznica - Vodice - Slanica - Nature Park Telašćica 27 km

In the morning you go by ship to Vodice, where your first bike tour begins. After a short time you will cross the bridge to the island of Murter. In Slanica you will meet your ship again, which will take you to the island of Dugi Otok. During the trip, enjoy the view of the crystal-clear water in the Kornati National Park, which is known for its diverse underwater world. Arrived in Telašćica Bay, take a short hike to impressive steep cliffs.

3. day Island Dugi Otok - Zadar 45 km

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 Božava 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.

4. day Zadar - islands of Ugljan and Pašman - Vodice 33 km

During breakfast your ship will take you to Preko on the island of Ugljan. 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. From today's destination of Tkon, you will cross over to the well-known bathing resort of Vodice, where you will also spend the night.

5. day Vodice - Skradin 35 km

Today's tour takes you from Vodice to the remote villages of the Dalmatian hinterland to the scenic port of Skradin at the foot of the Krka Canyon. In the afternoon you can taste local specialties.

Today you explore the most famous part of the Krka National Park with its unique waterfalls by excursion boat and on foot. Your ship will then take you to Šibenik.

Worth knowing about the trip National Parks Dalmatia Deluxe

Below you will find specific information about the trip National Parks Dalmatia Deluxe with the deluxe ship Magellan. If you have any further questions about this trip, simply give us a call: Tel.: +49 (0)6421 - 886890.

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, for example, 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 cycling stages require participants to be in good basic condition, which regular cyclists should have acquired. The daily stages of 30 - 60 km lead through hilly and mountainous terrain (approx. 400 - 700 m ascent per day) and are easy to manage as an e-bike rider. Due to the gradients, using a trekking bike requires a very good level of fitness, since steeper or longer gradients also have to be overcome. The roads are mostly paved and rarely used outside of the holiday season.

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 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 physical condition to ride at the higher speed, even on inclines.

Available rental bikes

There are unisex e-bikes with 11-speed derailleur gears and a low step-through or sportier unisex 9-speed hybrid e-bikes with a slightly higher step-through. 24-speed trekking bikes as women's (medium-high entry) and men's bikes are also available, but are not recommended for this tour. 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.

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

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 there are no special children's e-bikes available and that the children have to take the adult e-bikes, which can be used from a height of 1.50m. Children's trekking rental bikes can be provided from a height of 1.20 m, but please note the information described under "Requirements". 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.

Passport and visa requirements, health regulations

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

Corona travel information:
Before booking your trip, please inform yourself about the measures in place to contain the Corona pandemic.

Dugi Otok, die "lange Insel", ist die größte Insel Norddalmatiens. Die etwa 44 Kilometer lange und höchstens fünf Kilometer breite bergige Insel ist mit ihren einsamen Badebuchten und der herrlichen Unterwasserwelt ein Paradies für Taucher und alle, die ihren Urlaub ruhig und erholsam verbringen möchten. Naturliebhaber zieht es zur Hauptattraktion von Dugi Otok, dem Telascica-Naturpark, der den gesamten Südzipfel der Insel inklusive der vorgelagerten kleinen Eilande einnimmt. Die atemberaubenden schroffen Kalkfelsen an der Steilküste des Naturparks erinnern an den legendären Sirenengesang, doch sind es hier die wunderschönen Buchten, die Seefahrer, Taucher und Badefrösche zugleich anziehen. Auch der von Kiefern umgebene Mir-Salzsee mit seiner unberührten Natur und den vielen seltenen Tieren und Pflanzen ist ein lohnendes Ausflugsziel bei einer Entdeckungstour entlang der Telascica-Bucht und ihres Hinterlandes.

Insel Dugi Otok
