Cycling Holidays in Croatia

Posted on December 12, 2013 by

Flexitreks Cycling holidays in Croatia are a great way to explore the enchanting islands and glorious coastline of this wonderful country.

Dalmatian Coast - Croatia

Dalmatian Coast

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.

As well as daily rides these tours also offer regular opportunities to swim from the boat in secluded bays.

Easy:
Our easy cycling holidays offer short daily rides on mostly level terrain. A typical day’s ride will take 2 – 3 hours at a leisurely pace and the remainder of the day will be free for you to explore further or simply relax. These rides are particularly recommended for newcomers to cycling holidays and for families.

Leisurely:
Our leisurely cycle holidays will suit those who are reasonably fit through regular exercise of one kind or another – not necessarily cycling. On the whole, the terrain will be level but there may also be a few small hills to contend with along the way too. Daily rides will typically take around 3 – 4 hours to complete.

Moderate:
Our moderate cycle holidays are for regular cyclists, who are used to longer rides with regular climbs. A good level of fitness is needed and you can expect to be in the saddle for between 4 and 5 hours each day.

Challenging:
