3. day Vis Island ca. 32 km

Vis is the furthermost island from mainland Croatia. A Greek colony called Issa has been on the island 2,300 years ago.

4. day Island of Korcula ca. 60 km

Today we discover the island of Korčula by bicycle and enjoy our lunch break in one of the local restaurants. The calmness and remoteness of the vast vegetation and cypress gardens have given the shape to the probably most beautiful Dalmatian island. Our cycle tour leads us via the village of Blato, like Rome build on seven hills, along a pass road across Pupnat bay and finally to Korčula town, where we have time to take a walk through the wonderful old town with its narrow “fishbone like” alleys. We stay overnight in Korčula town.

The rafting group will be picked up from the boat by a bus and are taken up river to the starting point.

We load the bikes onto the ship in Maslinica and enjoy our last crossing back to Trogir where, if time permits, we can take a tour of the old town which is a world heritage site. The last evening aboard our ship follows a nice tradition. While enjoying the communal dinner in a cosy atmosphere you will have the chance for a last get-together with your crew and your tour guides.

worth knowing

Worth knowing about the South Dalmatia bike cruise with the deluxe ship

Please find more information about the South Dalmatia bike cruise below. If you have any further questions feel free to contact us by phone: 0049 - (0)6421 - 886890.

Arrival by plane

Traveling by plane is the fastest, cheapest and most convenient way to get to Trogir. The nearest airport is Split (SPU). It is only 6 km from the port in Trogir. To get from Split airport to the port in Trogir, we recommend using a taxi. A taxi ride costs about 20 euros. You can also take bus number 37, which departs directly in front of the airport in the direction of Trogir and takes about 15 minutes (approx. 1,50 Euro, only kuna are accepted).

You can book flight offers at, or If you can not find a suitable flight to Split, it is possible to fly to Dubrovnik or Zadar from where we can offer you an individual transfer (on request).



Arrival by car

Munich - Salzburg (130 km), Salzburg - Villach (180 km), Villach - Ljubljana (100 km), Ljubljana - Rijeka (130 km): Motorway behind Ljubljana until you reach exit Kozina. Follow the road to Rijeka.

From Rijeka to Trogir: along the main road to Senj, then turn off towards the motorway to Split (300 km, about 5 hours).

Parking in Trogir:

In Trogir we gladly organize a secure permanent parking space on a private property at the port. The parking lot is 40 euros per week and payable on site. Please register in good time before the start of your trip. If you have booked a parking space, please ask one of the guides at the ships. He will lead you to a pilot that drives your car and guides you safely to the parking lot. After you have parked your car, the pilot will bring you back to the ship with his car. There is no insurance policy in Croatia that insures your vehicle against theft and burglary in our parking lots. Damages of this kind are only covered by the domestic liability insurance. 

Arrival by train

The railway station of Rijeka is very close to the port, approx. 1 km to the ferry, which can be easily reached on foot. There are also luggage carriers in the train station, which carry your bags with handcarts to the ferry for about 3 euros per baggage. In front of the station you also find a taxi stand. Besides there is a luggage storage at the train station for those arriving earlier. From the ferry port in Split, take a bus or taxi to Trogir (about 20 km or 30 min.). The return journey by ferry and train can only start on Sunday (for the accommodation from Saturday to Sunday there are always rooms at this time of year in Trogir), as the ferry only goes to Rijeka on Sunday evening. Please inform yourself about the current train and driving times at or in your travel agency. Please note that it is not possible to take your own bike from Munich to Rijeka by night train.


The tours are equally suitable for trekking cyclists and e-bike riders. When using a rental bike, the decision for an e-bike or a trekking bike must be made prior to departure. The bike stages require a good basic level of fitness from the participant, which you should have acquired as a regular cyclist. The tours go up to an altitude between 200 and 650 meters. The cycling stages of 12 to 31 mi. (20 - 60 km) in length lead through hilly and mountainous terrain (approx. 400 - 700 vertical meters per day) and are cycled without time constraints. There are also steeper or longer inclines to be mastered. Most of the roads are paved and there is little traffic outside of the holiday season. Instead of a bike tour, you can also take a half or full day of bathing on the ship. Decide for yourself every day whether you cycle individually according to information and maps or join your travel companions. 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 (advance notice required).

The guided group pace on this trip is based on the e-bike riders. If you ride a trekking bike on an e-bike trip, you shouldn't be surprised at the faster basic pace. Trekking cyclists should also have the necessary stamina to ride this pace.

Available rental bikes

You can choose between 21-speed gear shift trekking bikes for men and women or electric bikes.

Electric bikes on request.

Each bike is equipped with a pannier (by Ortlieb).


The cook on board is a member of the crew and prepares the breakfast and one or two warm meals a day. The catering consists of 4 x full board and 3 x half board. It starts with the dinner on the arrival day and ends with the breakfast on the departure day.

Local fees

Lump sum for local fees and drinking water on board and for the bike trips:

50 euros per adult

25 Euro per child up to 16 years of age

(Payable to the captain on site)


You can book a cabin for three persons and get a 50 % price discount for the third person. The cabins for free are equipped with one double bed and a single bunk.


We believe that only children in a good physical condition and of a minimum age of 10 and previous bicycle tour experience are able to master the bike tours on their own strength. Please note that the minimum height for a rental bike is 1,20 m (21-speed-trekking bikes) and 1,50 m (E-Bike). There is a helmet duty for children up to age 16 in Croatia.

7 days hotline service

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