Cruise and cycle among the islands of Croatia and get to see and explore new and out of the way places
If you are looking for an active yet casual and informal vacation, without the routine of traditional cruise tours, then this cruise is the ideal solution for you. There will be something special and fun for each person. Our ship will drop you off on one side of the island and you can cycle (with our guide) across the island where the ship waits to pick you up to take you onto the next island for you to explore by bike.
