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 hybrid or 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 tubes). Your bike should be in prefect mechanical working order.
Private e-MTBs can be brought along on our MTB SPECIAL tours for a handling fee of 50€/bike. Please be aware that e-bike batteries are not permitted on board of aeroplanes. If your mode of transport to your Islandhopping tour is by plane, and you wish to ride an e-MTB while on tour with us, please consider hiring one form our fleet.

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.
This tour sometimes takes place parallel to our Boat & Bike Kvarner Bay tour on the same boat. One tour guide accompanies the mountain bikers whilst the other accompanies the hybrid cyclists. This is perfect for travelers who wish to spend their holiday together, but do not share the same riding style.
The guiding, condition of bikes, ship and ships staff where excellent
Inselhuepfen was very organized - making adjustments on the fly (due to the unpredictable weather) that greatly improved our enjoyment. The staff, both guides and ship staff, were hard working and always engaged with we participants. The boat was beautifully designed and cared for and quite comfortable.
I particularly enjoyed *** the photographer, who was always outgoing and full of energy. He's a very entertaining young man and a valuable asset. And *** was smart, thoroughly professional and …
The staff and the ship were wonderful.
