1st Day
Trogir (Embarkation) – Island Šolta
A & B: aprx. 6 km, aprx. 180 m of elevation
Individual arrival to Trogir. After check in on the motor yacht between 2 and 2:30 pm, the first crossing to the Island of Šolta starts at 3 pm. Here we will start with our first tour, which leads us past kilometres of dry stone walls, numerous olive groves, locust bean and fig trees. Sage and rosemary line the hidden paths and are the basis for the honey from the local beekeeper Goran, who, with wit and charm, brings us closer to the importance of bee’s lives. Short trails lead down to the sea and back to the ship, where we spend the evening in a charming harbour town.
2nd Day Island Brač
A/B: 37 km, 850 m of elevation
Today we will first bike on a wide nature trail along the coast of Brač. We bike past fish farms, old submarine bunkers and secret coves. As we bike up the mountain ridge in the middle of the island, magnificent views of the neighbouring islands of Hvar, Vis and Šolta inspire us. On the descent, we have the choice between a technically challenging single trail or a wide gravel road with beautiful views of the mountainous mainland coast and the Cetina Canyon. Our descent takes us into the small village of Dol. After a cappuccino break, we continue in the direction of the charming harbour of Postira. With good weather conditions, we can enjoy one of the most amazing sunsets of the tour.

The path leads us past olive groves, herb meadows and typical karstic formations such as sinkholes. The view from atop the 780 m high Vidova Gora is incredible. You can even have a look down on Bol and the iconic Zlatini Rat Beach - the Golden Horn. The descent into the valley starts out technical and becomes more flowy as we near the end. An alternative, less challenging path with incredible views over the city of Bol can be taken back to the boat also. On the subsequent crossing to Vis, we can again look back to the peak and enjoy the end of the day by relaxing on board.
4th Day Island Vis
A: aprx. 38 km, aprx. 900 m of elevation
B: aprx. 27 km, aprx. 600 m of elevation
Vis is the farthest inhabited island from the Croatian mainland. Great diversity in the terrain of the island offer us mountain bikers fantastic riding opportunities while exploring this treasurable location. Wonderful views and unique single trails make the island a paradise for biking. The trip to the top/peak of the island is a worthwhile recommendation for advanced bikers as an additional option. Whilst daydreaming of the trails and sharing your impressions, the ship takes us to the next haven on Korčula Island.
5th Day Island Korčula
A: aprx. 47 km, aprx. 1,000 m of elevation
B: aprx. 38 km, aprx. 700 m of elevation

Strengthened from a coffee break we can bike back to Vela Luka on quiet side roads and flowy trails. Those who want to explore more, can bike to the viewpoint Hum. From there we can take a technical trail back to the harbour. Once back on the ship we set sail for Hvar.
6th Day Island Hvar – Split
A: aprx. 38 km, aprx. 1,000 m of elevation
B: aprx. 29 km, aprx. 350 m of elevation
After breakfast level A bikers start from Stari Grad and bike to the top of the pass on an asphalt ascend to spare their strength. From there we can see Stari Grad and the ancient Greek wine fields of the island. Across gravel paths and trails, we reach the island’s capital of Hvar. Here we have the time to stroll through the streets, visit the Spanish Fortress and watch the bustling city life from the comfort of a café. With picturesque views and many old houses, we continue on our bikes to a deserted village, where we wind our way through the town’s narrow alleyways. Whoever decides to bike option B will ride a richly diverse round tour from Stari Grad via Jelsa and Vrboska. The ship waits on us in Stari Grad at the end of the tour for a cruise to Split. Enjoy the special atmosphere of the vibrant city with the famous Diocletian Palace in the evening.
7th Day
Split – Čiovo Island - Trogir
A: aprx. 31 km, aprx. 600 m of elevation
B: aprx. 24 km, aprx. 450 m of elevation

Čiovo is a sea of flowers and the aromatic scent of wild herbs hangs in the air. The easier tour takes us along natural roads with wonderful views over the sea. Those who prefer a challenge can look forward to some great single trails. Afterwards there is enough time in the afternoon to enjoy the UNESCO World Heritage city of Trogir before enjoying a festive last meal on board in the company of your fellow travellers and guides.

Important information

Spoken language

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

Itinerary changes

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.

Requirements

MTB-Level A: 3; MTB-Level B: 2

Moderate to challenging daily tours in hilly terrain. The terrain in this region is very diverse and changes from island to island: technical and demanding single trails alternate with wide gravel 4x4 roads and quiet asphalt stretches; there are very few unrideable sections along the way.

 

Each day you are able to decide between tour variation A and B.
Level A: up to aprx. 60 km/37.5 mi. and aprx. 1,000 m/3,280 ft. of elevation
Level B: up to aprx. 50 km/31 mi. and aprx. 600 m/1,970 ft. of elevation

 

Tour groups with less than 10 participants will be guided by one guide only. In this case, only one guided MTB level can be offered and the guide will do their best to customize this level to the abilities within the group.

Single-Trail Classification

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.

Requirement to wear a helmet

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.

Gruppentempo

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.

Bringing private MTBs or e-MTBs

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 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.

 

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.

Noise on board

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.

Travel recommendation for groups with varying biking interests (MTB & hybrid cycling)

Our South Dalmatia MTB Standard tours, which offer MTB and hybrid bike tours parallel to each other on the same boat, are still available. These tours have a different itinerary to our MTB & Boat South Dalmatia Special tours and only provide one MTB riding level. This itinerary is perfect for travelers who wish to spend their holiday together, but do not share the same riding style.

What Our Guests
Have To Say

Es ist wirklich sehr schwer in Worte zu fassen was wir erleben durften.
Es war mit Abstand der schönste Trip in meinem Leben, ich kann es nicht anders sagen.
Das Schiff, die Crew, die Guides, die Touren, das Essen und und und, alles war einfach perfekt.
Vielen herzlichen Dank das ich das erleben durfte.

Abwicklung der Reise-Informationen und Fragen dazu waren reibungslos und kompetent.

Besonders vor Ort auf dem Schiff hatten wir drei *super guides* ***! Alle 3 sind mega nett, lustig und stellen sich auf die jeweilige Situation und Personen ein.! Nochmal ein Dickes Dankeschön an alle drei.

UND!! DIE CREW NATÜRLICH!! DAS ESSEN UND DER SERVICE PERFEKT!!!

Wir werden so eine Reise auf jeden Fall wiederholen!

We loved our trip. It was organized with just the right amount of biking, tours and freetime. The food was fabulous but the portions were too large for most of us.

Sehr kompetenter Guide ***, top Küche, nur die Räder waren zu klein

Die Betreuung durch die Guides war herausragend. Senad ist der beste Guide, den ich bis jetzt je gehabt habe. Man merkt ihm an, dass er Spass an seiner Arbeit hat.
