We will tour through the towns of Split, Hvar, Stari Grad and Korcula, towns that include two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, so named for their impeccable preservation, historic value, and stunning beauty.

NOTE ABOUT THE CYCLING
There are only rare flat roads in Croatia. It’s a very hilly terrain. So even though the above mileages seem short, they are plenty challenging because of the hills. And, since what goes up must come down, you can look forward to cruising for miles downhill with amazing views all the way.
You are responsible for arranging your own flights. Your final destination airport will be Split, Croatia.
From the airport you’ll take a taxi to Trogir (10 min drive), to your hotel for the night. The next morning we board the boat by Noon.

Day 1: Solta Island – 12 mile ride
We suggest you arrive as early as possible in Trogir to give yourself some time to explore this lovely port town on your own. After check-in at 12 noon, our motorized boat will take you on the first little cruise from Trogir to the island of Solta where we will start cycling.

Today we are back to the southern point of Hvar Island where we have a fantastic morning bike ride. We will also have a swim and then lunch before heading to some more islands.
Day 6: Cetina Canyon — 30 mile ride
After a short crossing to Omis, we’ll bike to the valley of the Cetina River, which has etched itself deeply into the cliff side. After lunch, back on the boat, we head to the city of Split, our port for the night. Before dinner we have another city tour planned for you.
Day 7: Split and Trogir – 11 mile ride
We plan on heading out on an early morning bike ride through Marjan Park, before setting you free to wander the streets of This UNESCO World Heritage site. After lunch we will anchor for a couple of hours for those who might wish to swim or just relax before we head back to Trogir late afternoon.

Mike and I have used Golden Adventures/Fit 4 Adventure on so many trips that I have lost count!.We have always had a great time, whether it's running, hiking, skiing or cycling. Diane makes it so easy to sign up for these great adventures! The trip to Croatia in September was one of our all time favorite vacations!
Diane does a great job in organizing active trips. Majorca & Croatia cycling trips were perfect. We will travel with her again soon.
