Bike and Barge Croatia: Southern Dalmatia and islands – PLUS | Princeza Diana & Melody

Our Southern Dalmatia “PLUS” tours offer our guests a Plus all round, which makes the Island-hopping tours so unique; a comfortable deluxe motor sailor, the availability of e-bike hire and pleasant surprises throughout the duration of the journey. On our South Dalmatia Plus Tour we will show you the beauty of the South Dalmatian coastline and island world in company of one of the first class ships, the majestic Princeza Diana or Melody.

Highlights of the tour include the Diocletian Palace in Split, the picturesque old town of Korcula and the lavender island of Hvar along with many other scenic islands and make this journey an unforgettable experience. Culture does not fall by the wayside.

This tour is in many ways similar to the regular South Dalmatia tour, making the Plus Tour a great alternative should your dream tour date in South Dalmatia already be booked out. Depending on wind and weather we reserve the right to run this tour in reverse.

Day to day program

All distances are “approximate distances” of recommended bike tours.

The tour details are barring changes, a.o. as a result of nautical, technical or meteorological reasons. We reserve the right to make changes to the planned itinerary due to changing wind and weather conditions as well as organizational requirements. If necessary the tour will be operated in reverse.

Day 1 (Sat): Trogir (Embarkation) – Hvar Island

Individual arrival by car to Trogir or by plane to Split airport, which is about 3mi./ 5 km away from the harbor of Trogir. After check in on the motor yacht between 2 and 2:30 pm the first cruise starts about 3 pm from Trogir to Hvar Island. Stari Grad is the second largest settlement on the Island of Hvar and well known for its important harbor. Overnight stay in Stari Grad.

Day 2 (Sun): Islands of Hyar and Vis (aprx. 16 mi./25 km)

Today’s first cycle tour leads us along the almost traffic free pass road through nicely set small villages. Afterwards we return for a lunch to Stari Grad and cruise to the island of Hvar with its same-named capital. We visit the magnificent Renaissance Square and enjoy the view up to the Spanish Fortress situated high above the city. We hop on board again and cross over to Vis Island at about 4 pm. Overnight stay on Vis.

Day 3 (Mon): Vis Island (aprx. 20 mi./32 km)

Vis is the furthermost island from mainland Croatia. A Greek colony called Issa has been on the island 2,300 years ago. Due to its strategic location it was a military zone until 1995 and prohibited for foreign tourists. Today we have the opportunity to explore the lovely island by bicycle. Alternatively there is a possibility to participate in a three-hour jeep tour around the island (about 35 Euro). After cycling the boat takes us to the Island of Korčula. Overnight stay in Vela Luka.

Day 4 (Tue): Korčula Island (aprx. 37.5 mi./60 km)

Today we discover the island of Korčula by bicycle and enjoy our lunch break in one of the local restaurants. The calmness and remoteness of the vast vegetation and cypress gardens have given the shape to the probably most beautiful Dalmatian island. Our cycle tour leads us via the village of Blato, like Rome build on seven hills, along a pass road across Pupnat bay and finally to Korčula town, where we have time to take a walk through the wonderful old town with its narrow “fish-bone like” alleys. We stay overnight in Korčula town.

Day 5 (Wed): Island Brač (aprx. 17 mi./27 km)

Today we cruise to the island of Brač, which is famous for its radiant marble that was, among others, used for the White House in Washington or the Reichstag building in Berlin. After an extended swim break followed by lunch, we start our cycling trip in Sumartin, leading us to Selca and on to the picturesque harbour town Pučišća. The picturesque harbor is home to one of the most famous masonry schools in Croatia. The creations of the students decorate the harbor village. Overnight stay Pučišća.

Day 6 (Thu): Omiš – Split (aprx. 16 or 27 mi./25 or 44 km)

Short crossing to Omiš. We cycle from Omiš through the valley of the Cetina River which is surrounded by steep rocks. After 11 mi./18 km we have the choice to take part on a four hours rafting tour on the Cetina River (not included in the tour price) and afterwards a small cycle tour of about 5 mi./ 8 km back to the boat – or to expand the cycling tour (no rafting) to 27 mi./44 km along small side roads and versatile landscapes until reaching Omiš and its pirate castles. In the afternoon our ship takes us to Split. The old town of Split, built adjoining the famous palace of the Roman Caesar Diocletian, is a world heritage site. Overnight stay in Split.

Day 7 (Fri): Šolta Island (aprx. 12.5 mi./20 km)

After crossing over to Rogač on the island of Šolta we commence our last cycle tour. Walled fields, numerous olive groves, locust bean and fig trees line the roads. The herbal smells of rosemary accompanies us along our tour through this island. Our boat awaits us in Rogač and we enjoy our last crossing back to Trogir where, if time permits, we can take a tour of the old town which is a world heritage site. The last evening aboard our ship follows a nice tradition. While enjoying the communal dinner in a cosy atmosphere you will have the chance for a last get-together with your crew and your tour guides.

Day 8 (Sat): Trogir (Disembarkation)

After breakfast disembarkation until 9 am and individual trip home.

Good to know

All distances are “approximate distances” of recommended bike tours.

The tour details are barring changes, a.o. as a result of nautical, technical or meteorological reasons. We reserve the right to make changes to the planned itinerary due to changing wind and weather conditions as well as organizational requirements. If necessary the tour will be operated in reverse.

Language aboard
Due to our international audience all tours are conducted bilingually, in English and German.

Level 3
Our cycle tours fit for both: hybrid and e-bikers. You have to decide beforehand, which bicycle you like to rent, if you decide to rent one. The cycle tours require at least basic level of fitness from participants, which they should have acquired from steady cycling. The tours will take us up to a height of 200 to 650 m above sea-level. The day-tours from 12 to 37.5 mi. (20 to 60 km) will take us through hilly and mountainous terrain and will be completed without any time-constraints. Participants will also need to master long and steep climbs, during which they are, however, also permitted to push their bicycles. We traverse mostly asphalted roads, which are rarely frequented outside the holiday seasons.

You are free to set aside a half or full day to swim or to spend time on board the boat, instead of taking a planned cycle tour. Helmet use is mandatory on all cycle tours. You are strongly encouraged to bring your own (well-fitted) helmet. Rental helmets are available in limited numbers (reservation requested).

Bringing children
We believe that only children in a good physical condition and with a minimum age of 10 and previous bicycle tour experience are able to master the cycle tours on their own strength. Please note that the minimum height for a rental bike is 1.20 m (4 ft.) for hybrid bikes and 1.50 m (4.5 ft.) for e-bikes. There is a helmet duty for all children up to age 16 in Croatia.

Catering
The on-board chef is a member of the crew and prepares the breakfast and one or two warm meals a day. The catering consists of 4 x full board and 3 x half board. Catering starts with the dinner on the arrival day and ends with the breakfast on the departure day.

Our ships
Please do not forget that the ship is your hotel as well as a machine, which has to be maintained and operated – day and night. A certain level of noise is therefore inevitable.
