All 6 cycling tours will be accompanied with the possibility to swim in the clear Blue Adriatic sea or the salty lakes of the National Park Mljet and „seasoned“ with a touch of Mediteranean culture, while exploring the wonders of medieval Korcula Old Town, the birthplace of famous traveller and writer Marco Polo, or enjoying a view to the red-tiled roofs of Old Town of Dubrovnik.

Vaccinations and Visa
Visas are not required by the following nationalities: British and other EU countries, Nationals of Australia, New Zealand, United States and Canada. Other nationalities should check with the relevant authorities. There are no specific health risks.
The rides mainly follow tarmac roads, but where possible on the islands we will use the quieter older roads that tend to be hard gravel. The roads are quiet and there is less traffic on the islands than the mainland. The route will be generally undulating but there are a few challenging hills that can be tough in the warm weather. The trip is vehicle supported so it is possible to miss some of these harder sections if you prefer. At times the route will follow roads or tracks with a steep down slope to one side. Certain sections will not have a barrier. No real riding experience required but you should be comfortable on a bike and have a reasonable level of fitness.
If you have any queries about the difficulty of the trip please do not hesitate to call us.
This tour is ran by our bike enthusiasts Ana Kunštek or Bojan Dermol. You may read a bit more about your guides here.
Weather & seasonality
Croatia boasts one of the sunniest climates in Europe, and some regions are notoriously free from rain. We generally travel off-season, so you should expect some variation in temperature and possibly some rainfall. Temperatures can be high, particularly on the July departures and can reach the mid to high 30s (degC).
