Croatia Bike + Barge Tours
An island hopping Croatia Bike Tour
This Croatia bike and boat tour, specifically located in Southern Dalmatia, the smallest and most sparsely populated region of Dalmatia, will take you past unique little towns and through the beautiful island countryside. Tourism in Dalmatia has been rising due to its many spectacular beaches, the tempting waters of the Adriatic, the many coves, islands, and channels as well as national parks and favorable climate. This bike tour in Croatia lets you experience the beautiful island of Korcula with its picturesque old town, the wine growing peninsula of Peljesac and to the south of the peninsula, the island of Mljet with its impressive national park. The tour guide will guide you through the towns of Trogir, Hvar, Stari Grad, and Korcula, which are almost all protected as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
- Unesco World Heritage cities
- Unique accommodations
- Stunning landscapes
- Optional rafting excursion down the Cetina River

Extra time in Trogir. The medieval town of Trogir is almost like a museum and well worth visiting. The primal reason is its marvelously preserved old town (built on an island) and also a World Heritage Site. Furthermore, countless cafes invite you to relax with some coffee, ice cream or a piece of cake. Trogir is also an ideal starting point for excursions to neighboring Split where you can also spend a night or two.
Please be aware that you will be part of an international group of people. Parallel to most of the Southern Dalmatia tour dates, there is also the Southern Dalmatia Electric Bike tour on one of the Deluxe ships, either the Princeza Diana or Melody. Electric bike and hybrid touring bike itineraries are conducted parallel - the itinerary is similar. Therefore the electric bike tours would be the perfect alternative if the desired tour date on the regular tour is already fully booked or if you are looking for a tour on an even more luxury boat.
Before you travel, please check your country's passport and visa requirements and the passport and visa requirements of the country/countries you plan to visit. For US citizens, the US Department of State website is a good source of information. The Country Information tab in the International Travel section provides details about passport validity, blank passport pages required, etc. For our other international clients, please be sure that you research your own country's travel requirements. It is each traveler's responsibility to ensure proper documentation.
*Important note: Beginning July 1, 2021, additional documentation from the European Travel Information and Authorization System (ETIAS) will be required to visit any of the 26 Schengen-member countries for tourism, business, medical, or transit. This is an additional check on security rather than a visa.

This tour is rated moderate to difficult and feedback has indicated mostly difficult! Total distance is 220 km / 138 miles total requiring a good level of fitness from participants, ideally acquired from steady, consistent cycling on varied elevation. Route conditions may include variations in height of between 200 and 500 m above sea-level. The day-tours from 20 to 50 km will take you through hilly and mountainous terrain and will be completed without any time constraints. Participants will also need to master long and steep climbs, during which they are permitted to push their bikes. You are free to set aside a half or full day to swim or spend on board the boat, instead of taking a planned cycling day. Roads are mostly asphalted roads, which are rarely traveled on outside the holiday seasons. If you opt to participate in this tour using an electric bike, do note that the majority of the participants will be riding regular touring bikes and will, therefore, need more time to climb the hills and more rest stops.
