Your day by day program
Wether you hire a bike or come with your own, the trip starts in Dubrovnik where you have plenty of time to discover the city.
Night in your 4**** hotel.
You will start riding through the southernmost and narrowest part of Croatia well known for its unspoilt beauty and an unique picturesque coastal area with long rocky shores and quiet medieval hamlets scattered in the hills. Then the Pelješac Peninsula and Ston, famous for its city walls, salt pans and oyster beds. Pelješac is also renown for its exquisite wines and offers amazing roads and endless rolling hills covered in vineyards and olive groves. Soon, you will take a ferry to Korcula, a fortified town on the East coast of the island bearing the same name where you can visit St. Mark's Cathedral, Marco Polo's house, Abbey Treasury, to name a few.
Take your time to enjoy the famous local wines and spend the night in a 4* hotel.
Your task this morning will be to explore the island and taste the local gastronomy between traditional cakes, the very special rose-petal flavoured "rozata" (cream caramel), goat cheese ravioli in sage sauce and rosemary sorbetto. Then you will take the early afternoon ferry to Stari Grad (subject to a different itinerary on April, May and October).
Relax on the deck for three and a half hours enjoying the crystal clear Adriatic Sea. Stari Grad, is a place of history when Hvar has been nicknamed Croatia's Saint Tropez.
Another occasion to try the local wines before the night in your 4**** hotel.
Today, you will discover Hvar with its fortresses and monasteries, the Benedictine nunnery renowned for a long
tradition of making laces of agave threads, and Stari Grad whose labyrinth of streets and lanes continually unveils its history. The most famous part being the residence called Tvrdalj (just try to read it loud!).
You will take the ferry to Split (2 hours) and enjoy the gorgeous views surrounding you. Once back on the land, you will reach Solin, the ancient capital of the Roman Province of Dalmatia where the size, wealth and magnificence
is testified by the remains of the impressive walls, its towers and gates, the temples, amphitheatre, graveyards... After your late afternoon ride, some more local wines to relax before a good night in your 4**** hotel.
Enjoy the Split centre atmosphere with its famous palace that nearly takes up the whole historical nucleus of the city and guess wether the gates are really made of gold, silver, iron and brass, touching Grgur's toe for luck and much more. Catch the late morning ferry to the Brac island and reach Supetar in roughly an hour. It is the largest settlement,
the true heart of the island located on its northern part, and a great starting point for those wanting to explore this beautiful, diverse and extremely interesting island. Enjoy the ride between almond trees, capers growing from stone and wild asparagus, to the hermitage monastery Blaca, little medieval hamlets, archaeological sites and stonemason school. Dip into the sea for a late afternoon swim on the most famous Adriatic beach called Zlatni rat.
And once more, enjoy the wine before your night in your 4**** hotel.
Through Sumartin, famous for its quarries and white stone that was used to build the White House, you will get to the ferry to Makarska (60mn), a long line of small tourist towns spread on the coast at the foot of the Biokovo Mountain. The views will amaze you that day and if you are lucky, you can even see Monte Gargano in Italy. Heading south, to Dubrovnik, your ride will take you on spectacular roads.
