Bike and Barge Croatia: Kvarner Bay PLUS | MS Andela Lora

Guarded by the towering Velebit mountain range in the east and hugged by the Istria Peninsula in the northwest lie the Kvarner bay islands. Quiet coves of crystal clear water surround the dramatic landscapes of the Kvaner bay islands; green hills and rocky moon landscapes give way to small harbour towns rich in history and culture. Discover the charm of the Adriatic Sea for yourself by bike and boat on board one of our romantic motor yachts.

Crystal clear water, deeply fissured cliffs and picturesque beaches – Kvarner Bay

The day begins with a well-rounded breakfast leaving you fit to explore the diversity of the Kvarner bay islands on a guided bike tour. Be it the medieval city of Rab, the car-free road in the sky on Dugi Otok or the contemplative life of the dwellers on the flower island of Molat, each day brings with it new discoveries. Evenings are mostly spent in picturesque harbour towns with winding alleyways where a great range of bars and cafes stand host for a relaxing evening.

The friendly crew will always make sure that you enjoy an easy-going journey.

This tour will often be operated on the same boat as the mountain bike cruise “Kvarner Bay” and one tour guide attends trekking bike group while the other one leads the mountain bike group. Due to changing wind and weather conditions as well as organizational requirements the tour could be conducted in reverse order.

  • Tour Details Croatia: Kvarner Bay | MS Anđela Lora

    Day 1 (Sun): Embarkaton: Omišalj | Omišalj – Cres
    Individual arrival in Omišalj, a nice little harbour village on the island of Krk. If you're planning to arrive by car, we will organise a safe parking space for you. Check-in on the motor yacht between 2 and 2:30 pm. At ca. 3 pm the ship takes us to the island of Cres in about four hours. On Cres we take a walk through the Venetian old town in the evening.

    Day 2 (Mon): Cres – Martinšćica | Martinšćica Osor (Approx. 23 km/14 mi.) | Osor – Lošinj
    In the morning your ship will cross you over to Martinšćica. From here you will cycle on the east side of the island among pine, fig and laurel trees to Osor, the artist town, where you will have lunch on the ship. Afterwards there will be time for a swim in the bay with crystal clear water. In the afternoon you will leave Osor on board the boat and navigate our way to the island of Lošinj. After a comfortable cruise and a refreshing swim stop the ship brings us safely into the large harbor of Mali Lošinj. The clear climate of this wellness retreat with its colorful captain’s houses and an abundance of cafes welcomes us for a relaxing evening, enabling us to unwind and recuperate.

    Day 3 (Tue): Lošinj – Veli Lošinj – Molat (Approx. 20+10 km/12+6 mi.)
    Along the seaside walk you cycle to the south of Lošinj and visit the picturesque small harbour of Veli Losinj before you will meet the ship for lunch. In the afternoon you cross over to the island of Molat, where you will do one more short cycling tour. Overnight stay in the quiet harbour of Molat.

    Day 4 (Wed): Molat – Dugi Otok | Dugi Otok – Božava – Veli Rat – Savar (Approx. 32 km/20 mi.) | Savar – Island of Pag
    During breakfast the ship leaves and takes you past many small islands to the “spice island” of Dugi Otok. Your bike-tour will start in the bay of Božava, which is surrounded by woods of pine, agave and tamarisk trees, and you will ride on a road nearly free of traffic. The tour leads you at first to the northern most point of the island where the light house of Veli Rat stands proudly since 1849 fulfilling its duty in guiding sailors safely on their way. A ride along the islands “Road in the Sky” brings you to the peaceful harbor of Savar or Bribinj. There will be ample time for a swim break in the afternoon. Overnight stay in a calm bay.

    Day 5 (Thu): Island of Pag | Novalja Novalja Sea (Approx. 20 km/12 mi.) | Novalja Sea – Island of Rab
    In the morning you will reach the island of Pag. In the harsh but delightful landscape of the island you will come across many fig and olive trees. Over the centuries the inhabitants have built numerous stonewalls for protection against the wind. Starting in Novalja you will cycle on the narrow peninsula until you reach the sea from where the ship takes you to Rab. The island of Rab is one of the sunniest places in Europe. The town of Rab, the fortified capital of the island, was built in the Middle Ages on a wedge shaped headland, and marks one of the highlights of the trip. The four famous bell towers are the symbol of the adorned beauty of the town. After dinner you can explore the narrow alleys with numerous cosy cafés.

    Day 6 (Fri): Island of Rab (Approx. 25 km/15 mi.) | Island of Rab – Island of Krk
    You will bike along the coast to the east side of the island, an area with virtually no vegetation, which’s rough and cliffy rocks remind of lunar landscape. The road will lead you on to a bay with a sandy beach, which is rather atypical for the Kvarner islands. At lunchtime the ship will be waiting for you in the harbour directly in front of the old town of Rab. After a swim-break the ship will take you over to the neighbouring island of Krk, where you will spend the evening in the historical town of Krk.

    Day 7 (Sat): Island of Krk Vrbnik – Omišalj: Bay of Soline (Approx. 45 km/28 mi.)
    You will cycle over the ridge of the island, which is covered by fragrant macchia to a valley of vineyards and then onwards to the small museum town of Vrbnik in the northeast. The town, built on a 50-metre-high cliff and surrounded by vineyards, is the home of the famous white wine, Žlahtina. Another peculiarity that Vrbnik has to offer is the second narrowest alley in the world. The way will lead you on across the island through old villages and rich vegetation to Omišalj. On the way, you will have a chance to swim in the bay of Soline. The last evening aboard takes place traditionally and includes the communal dinner and a last get-together in a cosy atmosphere with crew and tour guides.

    Day 8 (Sun): Disembarkation: Omišalj
    After breakfast disembarkation until 9 am.
