Experience the beauty of Dalmatia’s national parks, the serenity of its islands and the appeal of its ancient towns. On this easy-going adventure, the cycle paths are mostly traffic-free and there are plenty of places to stop off for a refreshing swim. You'll ride past landscapes of lavender, rosemary and sweet pines, and when you ride to villages and cool bays, try the fresh figs and delicate wines.

Cruising across the Adriatic to tranquil islands, you’ll drop anchor in historic harbours to explore twisting alleys, Roman ruins and ancient forts. Touring the peaceful islets and forest-fringed gorges of Dalmatia’s national parks is a special experience, and relaxing on deck to watch a crimson sunset sink over the water is a magical way to end each day.
