Troy Holland

The sail & bike adventure delivered beyond our expectations — 5 STAR++ Ivo has gone out of his way to put together an incredible experience — one we will definitely be returning for! Ivo was incredibly knowledgeable in both the local terrain (much of which he has curated) as well as local cities, customs and the “good spots”. He was a pleasure to ride with and pushed us to be our best. Croatian Undulation is something you want to ask about!

It is really very difficult to put into words what we were able to experience. It was by far the best trip of my life, I can’t put it any other way. The ship, the crew, the guides, the tours, the food and and and everything was just perfect. Thank you so much for letting me experience that.

Ivo’s trip was mindblowing! It was so much fun. I’ve never used a mountain bike guide before but Ivo’s unparalleled knowledge of the local trails and history made a massive difference! We rode trails we’d have never ever found (secret entrances to centuries old paths!) and who’d have guessed such trails were such fun bike trails! Techy, rocky, steep, (but only in spots) with steps and switchbacks, plus other more flowy ones cross country kinds, all leading down to little villages, espressos, and jumping in the blue, blue, Adriatic Sea. Adrenaline and sensory overload in the best way. Ivo knows every foot of every trail – gives you the most detailed lowdown of all time- and happens to be a badass rider and humble Croatian bike star, we discovered too. Worth it!

Frequently Asked Questions About Bike Tours in Croatia

  • Yes! Croatia is fantastic for cycling, and here are four reasons why:

    • The landscapes are diverse: From the stunning Adriatic coastline with its charming towns and islands to the rolling hills of Istria and the leg-burning climbs of the Velebit mountains, Croatia offers something for every cyclist.
    • Croatia has a well-developed cycling infrastructure: There are numerous well-maintained cycling routes throughout Croatia, catering to all levels of experience.
    • The weather is perfect: From spring to autumn, the weather is mild and sunny and the rainfall is minimal, making for ideal biking conditions.
    • The cuisine is to die for: After a day of cycling, you can recuperate with some of Croatia’s delicious food and wine, with delicacies from Italy, the Slavic world, and the Ottoman Empire.

    Overall, Croatia is a dream destination for cyclists of all levels.

  • Determining the “best” place to cycle in Croatia depends on your individual preferences and cycling style. However, two regions consistently rank highly due to their diverse and scenic landscapes:

    Istria: This northwestern peninsula offers a delightful mix of rolling hills, charming hilltop towns, vineyards, olive groves, and the dramatic Učka mountain range.

    • Our recommendations: Explore the medieval towns of Motovun, Grožnjan, and Labin, cycle through vineyards on the Parenzana route, conquer the challenging climbs of Učka Mountain, or simply enjoy leisurely rides along the coast.

    Dalmatia: Croatia’s more southern coastal region boasts a stunning coastline dotted with islands, charming villages, and historic towns. 

    • Our recommendations: Cycle along the scenic Makarska Riviera, explore the world-famous party hub of Hvar, discover the historical city of Dubrovnik, or embark on a bike and boat tour of Croatia’s many islands.

    Honorable mentions: Visit Velebit mountain for challenging rides and spectacular coastal panoramas, head to the flat plains of Slavonia for a smooth and culturally rich bike ride, or explore Zagreb, Croatia’s bike-friendly capital!

  • Yes, cycling from Dubrovnik to Split is possible, and very a popular ride for both beginner and experienced cyclists. It’s a good way to experience as much of the Croatian coast as possible..

    You can choose to take the direct coastal route along the Adriatic, offering breathtaking views of the turquoise waters and picturesque islands. However, be aware that this route involves some challenging climbs and can be busy with traffic during peak season.

    Alternatively, you can avoid the crowds on a Croatian bike & boat adventure! This scenic route incorporates a sailboat or ferries to explore the stunning Dalmatian islands, such as Hvar, Korčula, and Brač. This option allows you to break up the journey with relaxing rides and explore the unique charm of each island.

    The total distance between Dubrovnik and Split is approximately 210 kilometers (130 miles), and you can complete it in 3-7 days depending on your chosen route, pace, and how many stops you make.

  • Cycling in Croatia is generally safe. The road infrastructure and many of the trails are well-developed and well-maintained, the locals are used to tourists and extremely friendly, and Croatia experiences less traffic than many bigger European destinations, especially during the shoulder seasons (fall through spring).

    However, there are still some factors to consider before your Croatia bike trip. Many of the roads in Croatia still don’t have dedicated cycling lanes, so you’ll be sharing them with drivers. Also, Some roads, particularly in rural areas, might have uneven surfaces or potholes, and the weather can change quickly, with some regions experiencing very intense winds called “bura” that make riding impossible.

    By following road rules, being aware of your surroundings, and going with an expert guide, you can significantly enhance your cycling safety in Croatia.
