See more of Croatia's enchanting Dalmatian coast as you cycle and cruise between ports on a sumptuous motor yacht. From idyllic green islands to captivating towns and cities, every day is different. Staying aboard a modern motor yacht, you’ll cast off from Dubrovnik with its terracotta roofs, cobbled streets and ancient city walls. From here, you’ll hop between islands, each with its unique appeal, from the monastery in Mljet to Korčula, known as 'little Dubrovnik', and the lavender fields of Hvar.

You’ll ride through vineyards and forests, often with the cobalt blue Adriatic as a backdrop. The cycling terrain on the mainland and islands is undulating in parts, but climbs are rewarded by stunning views and as you cruise from island to island, there are opportunities to cool off at secluded swimming spots. This tour also takes in the captivating culture of the region, with interesting spots to admire as you ride and guided city walking tours. We'd recommend booking extra nights before or after your tour to explore the UNESCO world heritage sites in Dubrovnik and Split.

Please note: This tour also runs in reverse order from Split to Dubrovnik. Please see 'Dates & Prices' section below.
