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.

Weather & seasonality
Croatia’s north is generally perfect for cycling – mild springs and autumns without too much heat (and still, not too much rain) make perfect conditions for cycling. We generally travel off summer season, when the heat can pose a problem but can be dealt with by leaving earlier in the morning.
You should expect some variation in temperature and possibly some rainfall. Temperatures can vary 10-20˙C in spring/autumn, up to 25˙C-30˙C in summer period (during the day).
