Spend a week on a charming motor sailor and travel to the islands of Cres, Molat, Dugi Otok, Pag, Rab and Krk. Your guide will accompany you to the hidden corners of the region. The hilly to mountainous landscape with partly challenging slopes requires a good physical condition. The islands vary greatly and therefore offer a large variety while biking: wide natural paths, small side roads, Roman roads, seafront promenades and narrow paths will lead you across the islands.This MTB & boat tour is aimed at off-road fans who enjoy a tour outdoors in nature in varying terrain but is not specifically trail orientated. The dedicated MTB trail percentage is limited to what the islands have to offer.
TO NOTE: This tour sometimes takes place prallel to our hybrid bike & boat tour on the same boat. One tour guide takes care of the mountain bikers whilst the other one accompanies our hybrid riders. This is perfect for travellers who wish to spend their holiday together, but do not share the same riding preference.

Would you like to spend a few more days in Croatia before or after your Islandhopping tour in the Kvarner Bay? Then we recommend extending your stay on the island of Krk, which is one of the most diverse islands in the Mediterranean. Vineyards, olive groves, extensive forests and ancient stone walls characterize the landscape. There are many beautiful beaches and in Rudine you can visit an interesting stalactite cave. The town of Baška with its surrounding lunar landscape is also worth a visit.
Would you like to spend a few days in the green, hilly landscape of northern Croatia before or after your Islandhopping tour? Are you looking for a program that offers you both organised activities as well as enough free time to explore the Croatian hinterland? Then we recommend our three-day extension program in Trakošćan and Varaždin which includes two nights’ accommodation with breakfast, a guided tour of Trakošćan Castle, a guided tour of the baroque town of Varaždin including an organ concert and transfers between your two hotels.
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.
Due to our international audience all Islandhopping tours are conducted bilingually, in English and German.
We reserve the right to make changes to the itinerary, depending on wind and weather conditions or organizational requirements. Sometimes the tour will be run in reverse order. Our tours are dependent on weather conditions and the final decision is that of the captain. You are free to set aside a half or full day to swim or spend time on board the boat, instead of taking a planned bike-tour.
MTB Level 2
Sporty daily tours with partly mountainous stages of about 20 to 34 mi./32 to 55 km and 656 to 2,952 ft./200 to 900 m of elevation gain. The mountain bike terrain is very diverse as is the landscapes of the different islands. The hilly to mountainous terrain with some steep ascents requires a good physical condition. The islands are very different from one another and have a correspondingly large amount of variety while biking: wide natural trails, small side roads, Roman roads, paved promenades and narrow paths run across the island.
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.
We believe that only children with a good physical condition and a minimum age of 14 who have previous MTB riding experience can keep up with the demands of our mountain bike tours. In addition, they should have prior experience with riding techniques needed for descending on narrow trails and technical terrain. Please be aware, that our smallest rental mountain bikes are suited to a body height of 1.50 m and above (XS frame). Croatian law requires children under the age of 16 to wear a bicycle helmet when riding a bike.
For the best tour experience with children, we recommend our Multi-Adventure tours in Croatia or Greece. We are convinced that these itineraries provide the best all-round experience for each individual family member.
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.
We do not allow private e-bikes on board of our boats. This decision has been made due to health and safety regulations. In addition, e-bike batteries cannot be transported on aircrafts. If you wish to ride an e-bike for the duration of your tour, please get in touch with us about the rental options.
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 logistical handling thereof.
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.
