Cycling Holidays in CroatiaPosted on December 12, 2013
Flexitreks Cycling holidays in Croatia are a great way to explore the enchanting islands and glorious coastline of this wonderful country.
Almost 10% of Croatia enjoys protected status within National Parks and flying over the country it’s easy to see why. The coastline is a mosaic of hundreds of islands, some large some small, creating a natural barrier to the open sea. Many of the smaller islands are completely deserted while the quaint towns and fortified ports of the larger islands attest to the fact that the wonderful climate, fertile soil and superb scenery have been attracting settlers and invaders for centuries.
I remember going on holiday here in the late 70’s. It was part of Yugoslavia then of course and while the scenery was just as gorgeous as it is today, I do recall the standards of accommodation and cuisine back then leaving a little to be desired. Happily, things have improved enormously since then and today’s visitors can expect top quality accommodation and food.
Our bike and boat holidays in Croatia are a wonderful way to explore this fabulous coastline. Live aboard a comfortable or deluxe motor yacht cruising the islands, stopping for daily rides through wonderful scenery far from the madding crowd. Visit the serene and ethereal Kornati Archipelago, the idyllic Krka National Park with its stunning waterfalls or the romantic and beautiful Island of Korcula. As well as daily rides these tours also offer regular opportunities to swim from the boat in secluded bays. So whether its one of our cycle cruising holidays weaving its way through the Dalmatian Archipelago or a land based tour around the wonderful Istrian Peninsular take a closer look at our cycling holidays in Croatia.
