Welcome to your Croatian adventure! After some initial introductions, your guides will spend some time fitting and familiarizing you with your Trek bike for the week. We'll hop on a brief shuttle out of the city and begin our ride in the Konavle valley. This little known valley close to the Bosnia-Herzegovina and Montenegro borders is densely forested with cypress and pine trees as well as vineyards, olive groves, tangerine, figs, and mulberry trees. Today's ride begins in Cilipi and meanders through a protected nature reserve before stopping for lunch at Konavski Dori, a traditional restaurant with water mills dating to the Dubrovnik Republic. Continue riding to your heart's content through this stunningly beautiful landscape dotted with tiny villages and hamlets. After we return to Dubrovnik, take some time to soak up your surroundings at the hotel pool or at the beach before you and your newfound friends gather for drinks and learn about all that is in store for you in the week ahead. You’ll then enjoy your first rousing dinner together, a multi-course feast featuring the bounty of fresh local fare from both land and sea.

Today you will shuttle to the region of Ston, a salt-producing area, where we get on bikes and start riding along the Croatian Coast. From there, you’re off to discover the Pelješac Peninsula as you ride to Viganj. Stop for lunch at a small bistro in the picturesque fishing village of Viganj before hopping aboard a private boat for Korcula Island, the sixth largest island in the Adriatic. Korcula Town is a medieval Dalmatian village. We will transfer to nearby hotel right on the coast, which will be your home for next two nights. Tara's Lodge is a perfect place to relax. Tonight it's yours to explore and have a dinner of your choice.

Korcula’s vast and lush woods, hidden coves and forested hills are yours to discover by bike today. Explore the interior of the island as you make your way past vineyards, olive groves, villages and coastal hamlets. Continuing your ride, you’ll encounter the small coves and beaches of the steep southern coast, which are a dramatic contrast to the flat northern coast and its natural harbors. You’ll pedal through a colorful history founded by the Trojan hero Antenor, according to legend. Korcula has changed hands many times over the ages, including an era of Greek rule in the 6th century BC, the Roman conquest in the 1st century, and the takeover by the Venetians in 1000 AD. Lunch today is at our friends' organic olive grove where you'll taste the family's olive oils, enjoy a delectable lunch and some homemade preserves for dessert. This afternoon, we'll explore the town of Korcula together and learn its secrets and history with our local guide. Tonight your taste buds will reign supreme as you enjoy another meal together. Dinner will be at a charming traditional family bistro using only local ingredients from their garden. These brothers specialize in Peka, a dish of meat and vegetables slowly roasted under a cast iron bell. This succulent dish pairs wonderfully with a deep ruby glass of Plavic Mali wine.

After a morning ride to Vela Luka, you’ll travel by boat to Hvar, the most glamorous of the Dalmatian islands. After lunch on your own, explore chic Hvar Town, where the 16th-century Citadel towers over the yacht-filled harbor. While today it is considered a hot vacation spot, Hvar was once a Venetian capital on the key east-west trade routes. That influence lives on in a collection of Renaissance buildings including the Citadel; the 17th century Arsenal, which housed the oldest theater in Croatia and one of the first in Europe; and St. Stephen’s Cathedral, complete with a classically Venetian campanile. Explore the main square, Pjaca, paved in marble and lined with outdoor bars and boutiques, or walk through the old town, heading up the hillside to discover understated architectural gems hidden in the narrow lanes and alleys. If you’d rather, head for the beach! It’s your vacation—you decide! Tonight, choose from the many restaurants in Hvar for your dinner.

Today, pedal through a landscape like no other—this is a ride that you will remember forever! As you cycle along the limestone ridge of the island, a stunning vista unfurls with ancient white stone walls terracing green valleys, set against the blazing blue of the ever-present sea. Centuries ago, these walls were built by farmers clearing the land so that crops could be planted. Today, the stones remain and in between are gnarled vines, silver tipped olive trees and lush vegetables. You’ll then descend into the valley and pedal quiet roads bordered by vineyards and olive groves. You’ll cycle to the seaside port of Jelsa then continue on narrow roads toward Stari Grad, the original capital of Hvar until the Venetians declared the nearer Hvar Town more convenient. Tonight, you’ll dine at a renowned restaurant in town and celebrate an amazing week.

How to Get There

Dubrovnik (DBV)
10:00 AM
Hotel Bellevue, Dubrovnik, Croatia

Say Farewell

Split Airport (SPU)
12:30 PM
Split Harbor, Split, Croatia


We suggest that you arrive at least one day prior to start of your Croatia bike tour, which will enable you to adjust to the time zone and minimize the risk of missing the trip start due to flight-related delays. We recommend that you fly into Dubrovnik (DBV) for the trip start. Arriving two to three days in advance will give you more time to recover from the effects of a long international flight. The airport is 12 miles from the city center and can be reached by public bus, shuttle, or taxi. Buses and shuttles generally run after each international flight arrival and cost approximately 35 kuna. A taxi ride should take approximately 25 minutes and cost between 180 and 250 kuna, depending upon your destination and the amount of luggage you have with you. Alternatively, our hotel in Dubrovnik will arrange transportation for you for an additional fee.

For departing flights, Split Airport (SPU) offers flights to many European cities where you can then connect with flights to North America.

Your Trek Travel guides will meet you at the Hotel Bellevue (Ul. Pera Čingrije 7, Dubrovnik) at 10:00 AM on the first day of the bike trip. After some brief introductions, your guides will perform personal bike fittings. If you have brought your own pedals, make sure to have them and your cycling shoes available so the guides can properly fit the bike. We'll then embark on a short shuttle out of the city to start our ride in the Konavle Valley.

If you will be late for pick-up or are going to miss it altogether, please inform your guides. You will receive an email a week before the trip starts with their names and contact details. If you cannot reach them, please call our first hotel, Hotel Bellevue (+385 (0)20 330 000), and leave a message with your expected arrival time and contact details. If you arrive late to the meeting location, you can meet the group later in the day before social hour and dinner.

View our pre hotel recommendations


You will say farewell to your guides at 11:00 AM at the Hvar Harbor. At this time, you will embark on a private speed boat to Split. The private boat transfer to Split will take approximately an hour and a half, and land on the Split promenade or the first nearby dock, a five-minute walk from the Main Ferry Terminal. If you would like to extend your time in Hvar, you may forego the included private boat transfer to Split and arrange a separate public ferry to Split later in the afternoon at your own expense. Ferry times from Hvar Island vary by season, there is a 2:45 PM ferry in high season and a 6:30 PM option from Stari Grad. Your guides can assist you in selecting the ferry you need.

Planning For Your Trip

Packing and Weather

Croatia's Dalmatian Coast enjoys a warm, Mediterranean climate. Expect average daily temperatures to range from a low of 68 to a high of 78, with generally sunny days. Rain is always a possibility, so be prepared with layers. The weather can be cool at night, so please bring a light jacket and walking shoes for our short evening walks to and from dinner. Packing List

Before and After Your Trip


Before: Dubrovnik, Croatia

Less than two decades ago, Dubrovnik lay in smoldering ruin, with two out of every three buildings damaged in the 1991 bombardment. Today the city sparkles, its walled old center a smooth medieval stone glory, with the sheer blue of the clear Adriatic immediately below. This captivating town provides endless opportunities for further exploration by history buffs, music lovers, romantics, those drawn to the sea, and fans of the beach. Walk the palace walls, enjoy a symphony in the ancient cloister, dine in one of the many outdoor restaurants, or laze on a beach with a view of the city above—there’s no shortage of ways to enjoy this lovely town. We recommend the following accommodations for your pre-trip hotel:


After: Split, Croatia

Croatia’s second largest-city has established itself as a vibrant destination in its own right, rather than just a launching pad for ferries to nearby Dalmatian islands. The Riva, the main promenade that runs along the harbor, boasts vivacious outdoor life from dawn until dusk; its cafes and restaurants are filled with exuberant revelers. But the real draw in this town is the former palace of the Roman Emperor Diocletian. This grand gutted shell is no atmospheric ruin, it is alive and brimming with houses, apartments, hotels, restaurants, shops, and churches. The palace is filled with tiny streets and alleyways opening up into exquisite views of crumbling archways and ancient columns. We recommend the following accommodations for your post-trip hotel:
