Our island hopping trips are combined cycling & boat trips, resp. hiking & boat trips, and culture & boat trips, which last one or two weeks.
Our destinations for the cycling or hiking holidays are Croatia and Montenegro with qualified, multilingual tour guides. Normally you will be accompanied by two tour guides, who will guide you during the cycling tours
and will give you an understanding of the country and its inhabitants.
During your trip you will be accommodated on a romantic motorized sailing boat or a motor yacht. The cook will amaze you with typical food of the country. Our ships have space for 20 - 36 guests in double cabins with private shower/WC (More about the ships). This way you have an opportunity to get to know a country in a different way, without packing bags every day and without having to worry about ferry connections.
Age range, type of group
Our cycling tour
s are performed at leisure as it is very important to us that you have enough time to enjoy the landscape and to learn about the country. We provide well maintained rental bicycles on every trip.
Sleeping and meals
The meals represent southern european standard, but taking into account the requirements of active cyclists. The ample breakfast comprises bread, butter, jam, cheese, sausage, coffee, and tea as well as some extras.
For lunch, the cook on board will generally prepare a light menu and for dinner you can expect an opulent menu of several courses that often includes fish or seafood as its central dish. Please let us know beforehand if there are any foods you may or will not eat, and we will do our best to accommodate your wishes and to provide alternatives.
Many of our guests gladly take the opportunity to sleep under the stars on one of the decks. Please bring your own sleeping bags and mattresses for this, as for hygienic reasons the captain cannot allow mattresses and blankets outside of the cabins.
Basically, our experience is that only children with a lot of cycling experience and good stamina should take part in these trips. The earliest recommended age is 10, but we would like to ask you in any case to contact us beforehand to discuss the suitability of the trip for your child.
Furthermore, we offer bicycles for rental only for people of 4,5 ft height or more. On some of our ships (Linda/Romantica/Adonis/Tarin/Panagiota) there are cabins for three people available, where the third person pays a reduced fee of 50% of the basic fare. The cabins are equipped with a double bed and a single bunk bed above it.
From 2010 on the MTB tours will be operated together with the trekking bike tours
on the same boat. One tour guide will accompany the mountain bike
rs, the other one the trekking bikers.
As maritime harbours are located at sea level, a climb is to be expected at the start of every trip. However, we are pacing our tours leisurely so that there is no rush even if you push your bicycle uphill. Once you are on top, the route mostly ondulates along the ridge before you are rewarded with a long and often spectacular descent to the next harbour where you meet the ship. Generally we recommend our tours to everyone who has acquired a basic stamina either through using their bike as a everyday vehicle or as a leisure activity, or through other sports.
Our tour guides will inform you beforehand of the nature and difficulty of the tour so you have a basis to decide if you want to cycle or rather relax on board.
