Are you intrigued to see more of Croatia? We recommend extending your stay with our 2-day extension program in the Croatian capital, Zagreb. The old town, built by the Imperial and Royal Monarchy, boasts many impressive buildings. The additional program includes transfers, hotel accommodation, a city tour and dinner in a typical konoba.
We are happy to arrange additional nights with breakfast in Pula. The harbour town of Pula is located in the south of the Istrian Peninsula. The beautiful old town centre is full of exceptional sites. Incredible structures from the Roman era, such as the well-preserved amphitheatre, the Temple of Roma and Augustus, and the late Roman Franciscan church as well as the medieval fortification tell the fascinating history of Pula and make an extended stay in the town very worthwhile.
Due to our international audience all Islandhopping tours are conducted bilingually, in English and German.
We reserve the right to make changes to the planned route due to changing wind and weather conditions, and where necessary for organizational purposes. You are free to set aside a day to swim, relax or spend time at the hotel, instead of taking part in the planned bike tour.
This trip consists of daily tours with lengths of 18 – 37 mi./30 – 60 km and an average daily total of 1,640 – 3,609 ft./500 – 1,100 m of elevation leading through partly mountainous terrain. Single trails can range in difficulty between S2 and S3 on the Single Trail Scale, though most trails are easy, with S1 difficulty. The terrain we cycle is as varied as the landscapes of Istria. The tours differ each day, so there is plenty of biking variety from wide forest paths, small back roads, and fun single trails, to flow trails, and narrow forest trails. The group is accompanied by a transfer vehicle so should the climbs prove to be too exhausting, there is always the possibility of making use of the vehicle for certain stretches if needed. Moreover, your guide can easily avoid S2 and S3 trails should the group desire easier routes and can customize the trips according to the riding skills of the group.
To ensure that you are well prepared for your bike tour with Islandhopping and know what technical difficult level to expect, we have created a classification for all single trails that could be ridden on our tours. The difficulty levels included in our classification coincide with the Single Trail Scale which can be found here
Blue (easy, S0 – S1): small obstacles such as small roots, small stones, some erosion, gradients of up to 40 %, loose surfaces, tight corners but no hairpins, obstacles can be rolled over. Skilful braking and weight shift required, riding while standing.
Red (medium, S2): loose surfaces, larger stones and roots, steps and shallow stairs, gradients of up to 70 %, light hairpins. Constant readiness to brake, shift of centre weight to overcome obstacles, accurate braking, consistent body tension required.
Black (heavy, S3 – S5): blocked single trails, many large boulders, and roots, smooth/slippery surfaces, loose scree slopes, large steps/drops, extremely steep gradients of over 70 %, tight hairpins. Expert level of bike control/handling required.
Helmets are mandatory on our bike tours. It is advised to bring your own, well fitted, helmet with you as our rental helmet numbers are limited (reservation required). Furthermore, we recommend riders to carry arm and leg protectors during the bike tours.
On our regular bike tours the riding pace is determined by the cyclists on regular bikes. We ask guests who have reserved an e-MTB to be mindful of this and to acknowledge that the regular cyclists need time to rest and longer to climb the hills. We thank you for your understanding.
The tour which you have booked requires a bike with a fully functional set of gears. Islandhopping can offer you high quality, fully serviced rental bikes perfect for the terrain of this tour.
Should you however wish to bring your own MTB with you, please make sure to check the condition of your breaks, gears, and tires and don’t forget to bring along a puncture repair kit and the essential spare parts for your bike (e.g. brake pads and spare tubes). Your bike should be in prefect mechanical working order.
We do not recommend bringing along private road bikes, as the thin tires are not suitable for some of the road surfaces encountered on the tours.
Liability disclaimer: Radurlaub Zeitreisen GmbH. Will not be held liable for any damages caused to private bikes during loading, unloading or other logisitical handling thereof.
The tour price includes daily breakfasts as well as 3 lunches during the biking tours and 4 dinners at the hotel. Catering begins with dinner on the day of arrival and ends with breakfast on the day of departure.
