Multi Adventure Tour from Trogir

Croatia Bike + Barge Tours

A family friendly tour of Southern Dalmatia

This summer cruise is a new kind of experience that is well-suited for those looking for more than just a bike tour in Croatia. It is also perfect for families! Spend a week on a charming ship that takes you from island to island, sparing you the nuisance of packing suitcases and searching for accommodations each evening.

Along with overnights in ports, you also spend some nights in quiet bays. Decide each day whether you would like to go for a bike ride, go rafting, or take a stroll leisurely through the unique small harbor towns of the Adriatic.

You might decide to spend the day relaxing on board. This is indeed a pleasant way of exploring Southern Dalmatia, possibly Croatia’s most attractive landscape. A well-informed tour guide is always available and can point out the various possibilities of creating an active or a cycling holiday. You surely will not want to pass up the opportunity of jumping directly from the boat to the sea for a daily swim! Through stories, legends, and the country’s cultural treasures, you will get in touch with Croatia’s eventful history.

    Loved our Croatian holiday! Fabulous boat, Outstanding food, Fantastic Guides,
    Gorgeous scenery, Would highly recommend Tripsite and this trip:-)

    Boat: Princess Diana

  • Sue Gordon 1 year ago

    I LOVED this trip! My only suggestion would be rather than sitting in Jelsa waiting for the boat to arrive, we could have ridden to the next town and back. I noticed on the map Jelsa was about half way to the next town but our group could have easily handled it (which may be why we had so much time in Jelsa waiting for the boat).

    Boat: Princess Diana

  • Moira Brennan 1 year ago

    Loved that the trip was flexible enough to accommodate my 8-year-old son who didn't have a lot of biking experience but who was eager to learn! We had an AWESOME time!

    Boat: Princess Diana

  • Lynn Harrison 1 year ago

    It was a great trip. The boat was beautiful and the food was excellent. The only disappointment was that there was very little cycling. On some days the only "activity" was swimming, which was enjoyable, but not the amount of exercise we were hoping for. That said, we would highly recommend the trip to friends.

    Our third Tripsite bike/boat tour, this Multi-Adventure Tour beginning in Trogir was fantastic - as we've come to expect from Tripsite! The Princess Diana was a lovely ship with great food and wonderful staff. Where will our next adventures take us? Who knows but it is definitely on our radar.
