CROATIA LUX: BIKE & BOAT ADVENTURE

Bike & Boat

Experience an extraordinary private guided road cycling tour in Croatia, complete with an unparalleled sailing adventure aboard a luxury catamaran. Begin your journey on the Istrian Peninsula, then cycle across four epic islands in Kvarner Bay. Enjoy magnificent views during your ride, and in the afternoon, unwind by swimming or sunbathing on a luxurious catamaran.

Private group from 4 to 6 people.

Embark on a unique road cycling experience in warm and sunny Croatia where the enchanting Istrian Peninsula and the captivating four jewel-like islands of Cres, Lošinj, Rab, and Krk await your discovery. Begin your mornings pedaling through a tapestry of traditional Istrian old towns and tranquil fishing villages, where history is etched into cobblestone streets. By afternoon, transition from land to the luxury of a catamaran adventure charter, where you’re free to bask in the sun, swim in the crystal-clear Adriatic, and unwind in the tranquility of the sea.
Culminate each day with the exquisite flavors of local Croatian cuisine, with an emphasis on the freshest, most delicious seafood, for an authentic taste of the region’s culinary delights.

Guided by a professional local crew, including an adept skipper and licensed cycling guides, each morning will be an invigorating journey on two wheels with afternoons reserved for leisure aboard the luxury catamaran.

This is more than a cycling tour; it’s a journey through the heart of Croatia’s storied landscapes and a celebration of its seafaring soul.

Istrian peninsula

Istrian peninsula

Istria is a famous peninsula in Croatia and, certainly, one of the most impressive destinations in the entire Adriatic. Absolutely enchanting beaches, fascinating hilly landscapes and romantic mountain villages are just some of the most beautiful attractions to discover by bike! But above all, it is the world-famous coastal towns such as Pula, Novigrad and Rovinj that attract countless visitors from all over the world every year. Furthermore, the culinary offer of this region is also fantastic. A varied Mediterranean cuisine, excellent wines, the best olive oil and local truffles make a vacation in Istria a true pleasure.

Island KRk

Island KRk

Krk Island is the largest island in Croatia. This island pearl is especially famous for its numerous paradisiacal beaches, beautiful nature with high mountains, charming coastal towns and of course the unique charm, make this island a real highlight in Croatia. All in all, a visit to Krk is highly recommended.

Cres island

Cres island

Island Cres, a gem nestled in the Adriatic Sea, offers a serene escape into nature’s embrace. Cres is an untouched paradise for explorers and nature enthusiasts alike. Is not just an oasis of natural beauty, but a cyclist’s dream. With a landscape that unfolds in lush forests and a coastline dotted with hidden coves, it’s a place where every pedal stroke leads to discovery. The island’s tranquil villages, with their narrow, cobblestone streets and traditional stone houses, tell tales of a rich, storied past. Cres also delights the palate with its local culinary specialties.

lošinj island

lošinj island

Island Lošinj, known as the island of vitality, is a picturesque cycling destination where Mediterranean fragrances and a healing climate await. Cyclists can navigate the island’s diverse landscapes, from aromatic pine forests to the vivid blue sea, creating a sensory journey with every ride. The network of trails invites all levels of cyclists to explore, connecting the charming port town of Mali Lošinj with secluded beaches and hilltop viewpoints that offer sweeping panoramas of the Croatian archipelago.

Island pag

Island pag

It’s no wonder that in recent years the Croatian Island of Pag has become the location for so many movies. Due to the strong “Bura” wind, the island has very little vegetation. As you land at Pag you are immediately hit by Pag’s barren, rocky and vast moonrock-type landscape. There is no other place like this in Croatia, that’s for sure. The island is often referred to as “The Moonrock”!
Alongside this alien-like moonscape, Pag Island is surrounded by clear and brilliant blue Adriatic sea waters. Pag Island is connected to the mainland with iconic Pag’s Bridge.
