Sailing to Hvar, Vis and Korčula

Our afternoon cycling tour on the Island of Hvar leads us through the quaint harbours of Jelsa and Vrboska.

    4° Island Korčula (60 km)

    Today we will explore 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.

    6° Island Brač – Split (30/45 km)

After 11 mi./18 km we have the choice to take part on a four hours rafting tour on the Cetina River (not included in the tour price) and afterwards a small cycle tour of about 4 mi./7 km back to the boat - or to expand the cycling tour (no rafting) to 27 mi./44 km along small side roads and versatile landscapes until reaching Omiš and its pirate castles. In the afternoon our ship takes us to Split. The old town of Split, built adjoining the famous palace of the Roman Caesar Diocletian, is a world heritage site. Overnight stay in Split.

     

    7° Split – Trogir (15 km)

    In the morning we prepare for our last bike ride to Mount Marjan. A popular recreational site for the residents of Split, which offers fantastic views of the city and the surrounding islands. Afterwards we board the ship 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.

  • How to get there

    Your boat will be waiting for you in the port of Trogir. Some days before departure we will send you all details about the embarkation.



    By plane
    The closest airport is Split. Contact us for a free airfare quotation.

     

    To reach the boat at Trogir harbor we recommend to take a taxi (destination: harbor of Trogir, approx. 6 km/20 euro). You can use a public bus (no. 37) as well, which takes you within 15 min to Trogir town and stops in Trogir opposite the market. It leaves at the bus stop on the main road in front of the airport every 20 - 30 min.
    The old town of Trogir with the harbour area is very close.

    By train
    Split has its own train station. From here you can take a taxi to the point of embarkation (cost: about 20 €) or a bus. More information: www.autotrans.hr

    Car and parking
    If you are planning to reach Trogir by car travelling through Slovenia, we remind you that you need to purchase the vignette in order to drive on the Slovenian motorways. It costs about 15 € for a week and 30 € for a month.

    We can book a safe parking place for you in Trogir, in a private area which is close to the port (cost: 50 € to be paid on site, on a first come first served basis). Anyway, there are no insurances against theft or damages to the car. You can ask your guide where your parking place is.

      Le isole della Croazia meritano sia dal punto di vista naturalistico (mare molto bello) che culturale. Tappe in bici alcune impegnative in termini di dislivello.

      Departure 05-12 August 2017

      Online from 17 August 2017

      Percorso impegnativo, da non sottovalutare il profilo altimetrico (soprattutto in agosto con temperature variabili tra i 35 ed i 38 gradi). Mare stupendo (bellissimo tuffarsi al largo dalla barca).
