Overview

What to expect

Cycle around the diverse islands of Kvarner Bay, cruising past fissured cliffs and pebble beaches on an adventurous escape with added luxury – look forward to relaxing on a duluxe motor yacht with the best of everything, from superior cabins to a sumptous sun deck. You can make the cycling as easy or adventurous as you like, with optional detours and the choice of electric bikes. The natural landscapes here are breathtaking, so get ready to capture crimson sunsets on camera and spot endangered griffon vultures gliding overhead.

Each island is unique and you’ll ride through wild landscapes and green meadows, smell fragrant pines and discover hidden coves and lunar landscapes. Fortified towns make relaxing places to stop for an espresso or you can cycle to medieval clifftop villages for glass of local wine.

  • Green forests and rocky shores, hidden coves and clear waters
