Why we love Cycling Dalmatia SG tour?
You don't have time for a long vacation; you don't want to change hotel each day or you want to spend more time exploring one place and say you know it's soul but still you want to be active? In that case, a self-guided bike tour Cycling Dalmatia is a perfect choice for you.
You will definitely enjoy cycling in the region of Dalmatia; in Split, its surroundings, and on the islands of Brač, Šolta, and Hvar.
During the entire self-guided bike trip you will be accommodated in Split, where during the evenings you can walk along its long palm-fringed waterfront, enjoy trendy cafe bars, great local konoba (taverns) and check out locals’ everyday life.
Each day you will have the option to enjoy easy coastal rides or climbs up to 700m with various cycling distances from 10 to 80km, discover a mixture of Greek, Roman, and Venetian heritage that emerged in today’s Croatian culture, taste great olive oil and wine, and of course enjoy the Mediterranean cuisine, considered as the healthiest one in the world!
You will be discovering island Brač, Croatia’s third-largest and the highest island in the Adriatic sea. Brač is famous for fishing and agriculture, especially vines and olives, as well as its precious limestone, which was used in building Diocletian’s Palace in Split and the White House in Washington.
Pedaling along rural and quiet roads of island Šolta will give you a chance to step back in time, as there are no big hotels, no modern buildings, just traditional life… The Mediterranean as it used to be.
You certainly don't want to miss Hvar. You will discover ancient villages and coastal roads, the UNESCO world heritage site of Stari Grad plain, and bike along lavender fields to reach famous Hvar town.
Did we forget to say that Split is one of the oldest Roman towns in the Adriatic?
Built by Emperor Diocletian in 3rd century A.D, as his luxury retreat, the vivid town of Split is inviting you to explore all its secrets!
Split is the second biggest town in Croatia, an economic and cultural center where one can find everything you need. Full of life in July and August but still very lovable with its own special charm. Since it is impossible to explore it in one day, with this tour you will have a chance to come back to a very vivid and authentic town after your bike ride.
As we are travelers ourselves we believe one of the most seen places anywhere you go is the main square and cathedral. So a must-see is Peristil with parts of Diocletian's Palace and the cathedral of St. Duje. Even it is beautiful during the day you need to check it out under the moonlight. The stunning scene with a guy playing his guitar each night and drinks from Luxor, one of the oldest bars in town will make you come back again and again.
There are many hidden gems in Split but if you want a panoramic view you shouldn't miss coffee at Vidilica.
Split has a very trendy and fast-changing gastronomy scene so you can choose from meat, fish, or vegetarian places that offer a big range of different meals.
Split is situated on the coast and mild temperatures allow us to enjoy cycling throughout the whole year so a self-guided tour Cycling Dalmatia is an excellent choice even in fall or winter. Actually, fall is a great season for cycling as there are no crowds anymore, the sea is still fine to jump in and refresh yourself.
This tour is a great mix of activities and a chance to explore Split and islands with their very rich history.
