Southern Dalmatia boat & bike San Snova

This boat & bike tour through Southern Dalmatia will take us past unique little towns and through the beautiful island world. Experience the islands of Brač, Korčula und Šolta as well as the beautiful lavender island of Hvar. Stroll around Hvar town with its mighty fortress and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere in the artist’s town of Stari Grad. The UNESCO world heritage cities of Trogir and Split will add to the highlights on this tour and inspire with their incredible history. Try a variation of local specialties on your journey, especially the local wines also referred to locally as ‘gods drop’. 

Premium boat San Snova

The wooden motor cruiser San Snova, 31 x 8 m in size took to the water in 2009. The 14 guest’s cabins are welcoming and equipped with air conditioning and a private shower/WC. The salon and its wooden finish provides a comfortable and friendly atmosphere, supported by the many seating arrangements on deck as well as the possibility to lie comfortably on the sun deck. The crew on board pay special attention to cleanliness and maintenance on board and radiate a friendly and inviting atmosphere to the guests on board.

In the morning cross over to the lovely natural harbour of Stari Grad on the island of Hvar. Our afternoon cycling tour on the Island of Hvar leads us through the quaint harbor towns of Jelsa and Vrboska. We start off through the vinyards on the famous ‘Stari Grad Plains’ and continue along a picturesque coastal road through the town of Vrboska, a.k.a. ‘small Venice’ to the harbor town of Jelsa. Afterwards we return to Stari Grad for our overnight stay.

Today we ride once across the length of the island. Today’s tour leads us along the almost traffic free road through quaint villages to the islands capital, Hvar, where we visit the magnificent Renaissance Square and enjoy the view from the Spanish Fortress, situated high above the city. After today’s tour, the boat takes us to the Island of Korčula. Overnight stay in Vela Luka. 

4. day Island of Korcula - Makarska, approx. 37 km

Today we discover the island of Korčula by bicycle. 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, and on to the harbour of Prigradica. The boat awaits our arrival at lunch and we set off for Makarska. If the weather permits we will organise a swim stop in a nice bay. The evening can be enjoyed along the famous Makarska Riviera.  

5. day Makarska – Omiš, approx. 44 km

Today you have the choice between taking part on a bike tour around the Cetina Canyon or participating on a rafting excursion down the Cetina River (not included in the tour price). The bike tour takes you once around the outskirts of the canyon with great views over the river and back down towards the sea. The rafting group will be picked up from the boat by a bus and are taken up river to the starting point. From here we follow the river downstream in the rafts gaining a unique perspective of the canyon and its flora and fauna. Participants of the rafting trip are brought back to the boat in the bus after the activity. In the afternoon we have time to explore Omis or to go for a swim at the nearby beach. The night is spent in Omis. 

6. day Islands Brač and Šolta, approx. 32 km

From here, we board the boat and cruise to the island of Šolta. Here we can take part on a 4.5km hike with a visit to the local beekeeper Goran along the way. Goran has worked with bees his whole life and they are his true passion. He teaches of their importance in the world and allows all of his guests to try the delicious bee products that he makes. We spend the night in the harbor of Rogač on Šolta.

7. day Šolta Island - Trogir, approx. 20 km

On Šolta we commence our last bike tour. Walled fields, numerous olive groves, locust bean and fig trees line the roads. The herbal scent of rosemary accompanies us along our tour across the island. After a round tour of the island, we return to the ship. We board and enjoy the last crossing to Trogir past the cliffs of the Čiovo peninsula. There is still plenty of time to visit the Old Town of Trogir, listed as a World Cultural Heritage site. The last evening aboard our ship is celebrated in traditional fashion. While enjoying the communal dinner in a celebrative atmosphere we will have the chance for a last get-together with our crew and tour guides.

Worth knowing about the Southern Dalmatia bike cruise with MS Kapetan Jure

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

Arrival by plane

Arriving by plane is the fastest, cheapest and most comfortable way to get to Trogir. The closest airport is that of 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 around 20 euros. You can also use the regular bus No. 37, which leaves directly in front of the airport building in the direction of Trogir and takes around 15 minutes. A bus ticket costs around 1.50 euros (only kuna are accepted).

If you cannot find a suitable flight to Split, you have the option of flying to Dubrovnik or Zadar, from where we can offer you an individual transfer (on request). You can research and book flight offers for example at:

Opodo

Skyscanner

Arrival 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 road to Rijeka. From Rijeka to Trogir: along the main road to Senj, there turn in the direction of the motorway to Split (300 km, approx. 5 hours).

Parking in Trogir:

In Trogir, we will be happy to organize a secure parking space for you on a private property near the port by prior arrangement. The parking lot costs 50 euros per week, payable on site 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. Damages of this kind are only covered by the domestic comprehensive insurance. If you have booked a parking space, ask one of the tour guides at the ships when you arrive. He will lead you to a pilot who will drive ahead of your car and thus guide 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 bike stages require the participant to be in a good basic level of fitness, which a regular cyclist should have acquired. The daily stages of 30-50 km lead through hilly and mountainous terrain (approx. 400-700 m ascent per day) and are cycled without time constraints. There are also steeper or longer inclines to be mastered, but pushing is permitted. Most of the roads are paved and there is little traffic outside of the holiday season.

Decide for yourself every day whether you cycle individually (i.e. alone) according to information and maps or join one of the two travel companions or individual participants. Instead of a bike tour, you can also spend a half or full 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 (advance notice required).

On this trekking bike tour, the guided group pace is based on the trekking bike riders. Anyone who rents an e-bike on a trekking bike tour is asked to be considerate of those who ride without electronic assistance. Trekking riders need more time and breaks when going uphill.

Available rental bikes

There are 21-speed trekking bikes available as women's and men's bikes and electric bikes with 8-speed gear hubs.

The bikes are each equipped with an Ortlieb luggage bag.

Catering

The cook on board prepares the breakfast and one or two warm meals a day. It starts with the dinner on the arrival day and ends with the breakfast on the departure day.

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.). There is a helmet duty for all children up to age 16 in Croatia.

Premium boat ROMANTICA

The Romantica was launched in 2007 and is a shapely two mast motor sailor which combines seafarer romance with the spirit of the age, style and comfort. One of the most important things for the captain is the smart appearance of his ship. The 16 guest cabins are spacious and air-conditioned including shower and WC. The bathing platform at the stern enables easy admittance for a swim in the Adriatic Sea.

Premium boat SAN SNOVA

The MS San Snova is our most modern wooden motor sailor launched in 2009 and was made exclusively for Islandhopping cruises. This ship, constructed entirely of oak, was built by the Scherka family over three years in their own carpentry as a family project. The 14 spacious guest cabins are air conditioned and fitted with shower and WC. The crew and the captain care for an immaculate appearance and a fun loving atmosphere on board the ship.

Separate cancellation conditions apply. Due to different wind and weather conditions as well as organizational necessities, we reserve the right to change the course of the route.

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.

Extra costs which are not included in the tour price

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 on site).
