Get your adrenaline pumping on this mountain bike tour of the Dalmatian Islands

Hop on a bike for this guided tour of the incredible Dalmatian Islands in Croatia. Your adrenaline will be pumping as you mountain bike across entire islands, stopping to learn some history, admire the fairy-tale landscapes, jump in secluded coves to swim, and taste local flavours. You’ll also get to enjoy a great day in a kayak in the Pakleni Islands, which look like they belong in a Mediterranean beach calendar.

Starting in Split, you’ll settle in and meet your group and go for a sweaty pedal to the top of Marjan hill for a view of the Old Town. In the next few days, you’ll get acquainted with Brac and Hvar, two Dalmatian islands that are home to some great peaks to climb on your wheels and UNESCO Heritage Sites, respectively.

At the end of the week, you gain serious distance riding across the island of Korcula, then down the Peljesac Peninsula. You’ll finish the tour in Dubrovnik, a popular coastal destination where high stone walls encircle the Old Town.

This tour is suitable for the adventurous traveler who seeks to experience Dalmatian history and nature in one of the best ways: on two wheels!
