This tour belongs to the Plus-Program and matches activity with comfort. The proud motor yard Andela Lora is your comfortable home for an amazing week. Tenderly decorated roomy cabins, bathrooms with separate shower, a comfortable sundeck as well as a stylish salon await your visit.

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 Kvarner bay islands; green hills and rocky moon landscapes give way to small harbor 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 harbor 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.

Due to changing wind and weather conditions as well as organizational requirements the tour could be conducted in reverse order.

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 – Mali 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 4 (Wed): Molat – Dugi Otok | Dugi Otok – Božava – Sali (Approx. 42 km/26 mi.) | Sali – Zadar
    During breakfast the ship leaves Molat 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. A ride along the islands “Road in the Sky” takes you to Sali, where the boat awaits us for a sail to Zadar, which, for centuries, was the political, cultural and spiritual center of Dalmatia. 3000 Years of history have left their imprint on the character of this town and there are many things to be admired: the mighty fortified walls with their bastions, the loggia but also the early Romanesque St. Donatus Basilica. In the evening our tour guide takes us on an extensive walk through the lively city center.

    Day 5 (Thu): Zadar  Island of Pag | Novalja Novalja Sea (Approx. 20 km/12 mi.) | Novalja Sea – Island of Rab
    After a long crossing 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 –  Jablanac – Island of Krk

    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-meter-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.

    On board: 21-speed hybrid bikes with bicycle bag. The price for these rental bikes is €80 per week. E-Bike FLYER with 8-gear-hub-shifting with pannier bag: €160 (limited, on request). For organizational reasons, guests can only bring their own bicycles after previous request and confirmation by the organizing company. Additional information on request.
    Catering:
    The cook on board is a member of the crew and prepares the breakfast and one or two warm meals a day. The catering consists of 4x full board and 3x half board. Catering starts with the dinner on the arrival day and ends with the breakfast on the departure day.
    Language:
    Due to our international audience the tour is conducted bilingually, in English and German.
    Changes:
    We reserve the right to make changes to the itinerary, depending on wind and weather conditions or organizational requirements. Sometimes the tour could be conducted in reverse order. You may find further details in your booking information packet.
    Children:
    We believe that only children in a good physical condition and of a minimum age of 10 and previous bicycle tour experience are able to master the bike-tours on their own strength. Please note that the minimum height for a rental bike is 1,20 m. (4 ft.). In Croatia there is a helmet duty for all children up to age 16.
    Requirements (level 2-3):
    The bike routes require a basic level of fitness, which you should have acquired by steady cycling. The routes can reach an altitude of 200 to 500 meters (760 – 1,640 ft.). The daily routes, of 20-45 km (12.5-28 miles), cover hilly and mountainous terrain and can be completed without time constraints. You will also come across some longer and rather steep climbs, where walking your bike is of course permitted. The roads are mostly asphalted. The tour guides will inform you about the course of the tour in due time. You are free to set aside a half or full day to swim or spend on board the boat, instead of taking a planned bicycle-tour.
    Helmet use is mandatory on all bike rides. You are strongly encouraged to bring your own well-fitted helmet. Rental helmets are available on board in limited number (reservation requested).

    BACKGROUND INFORMATION:
    The General Conditions (travel conditions) of Boat Bike Tours apply to cycling cruises, as well as to confirmation and cancellation of such tours.

Of course you may stay one or more days longer on board (children under the age of 18 years must be under supervision). The interior of the ship is a non-smoking zone: smoking is only allowed on the sun deck. As a safety measure, a statutory smoking ban applies in all cabins; this means that all cabins and rooms on board are non-smoking areas.

    Minimum number of participants for this tour is 14 passengers. The maximum number of participants is 36+.
