What You Carry

During the cycle day you will carry your daily requirements in the panniers provided with the bike. This may include your lunch, wet weather gear, water and camera.

Grading

The trip requires a good level of fitness to fully participate in the cycling. The tours will take us up to a height of between 200 and 500m above sea-level. The day-tours from 15 to 62km/9.5 to 38mi are through hilly and mountainous terrain and can be completed without any time constraints. Participants will also need to master long and steep climbs, during which you may need to push the bike. You are free to set aside a half or full day to swim or spend on board the boat, instead of taking a planned bike-tour. We will traverse mostly asphalted roads, which are rarely travelled on outside of the holiday seasons. Each day you can either decide to bike alone, using the information and maps provided, or join the two tour guides or other participants. It is considered suitable for active children (minimum 10 years, height minimum is 1.2m/4ft for hybrid bike or 1.5m/4.9ft for e-bike). *For safety reasons, we insist that cycle helmets be included as a compulsory item on your equipment list. Note: The cyclists on regular bicycles determine the pace. If you have reserved an e-bike please be mindful of this and to acknowledge that the regular cyclists need time to rest and take longer to climb the hills.

We traveled on the "Kapetan Jure" on our Croatian island bike and sail trip and the guides and crew on the trip were excellent, especially the lead guide Ana Pucic who was absolutely fabulous and made our fantastic experience even more fantastic, she was such a delight and always had a big smile on her face. Ana was so helpful with those who were a little less sure of themselves on the bike. I'm sure that anyone who is fortunate enough to have Ana as a guide would be singing her talents as a wonderful guide and leader.

We loved the Bike and Sail tour in Croatia. What a fabulous way to discover the country and it’s culture. Although we weren’t expert bikers, we were able to keep up with the group thanks to our ebikes. I would recommend an ebike if you are not an inclined biker. The guides were the BEST the food AMAZING. Our Captain was a knowledgeable sailer and guided us through some rough weather. We would recommend this trip to anyone with a desire for something different but so enjoyable!!

Croatia was a beautiful country and the Bike and Sail trip was amazing. The staff on board were exceptional at serving our every need. I would recommend this trip to everyone who is willing to put in the effort on the bikes, as the hills were challenging, but I loved every minute of the scenery and were really impressed with the great two guides we had, who showed us a good time.
