Our very popular Dubrovnik to Split Bike and Boat holiday takes in some of Dalmatia’s most beautiful islands and two of its fascinating cities. During your week aboard a lovely motor yacht you’ll enjoy serene cycle rides around 5 beautiful islands. There will also be plenty of time for swimming from the boat and strolling around charming, island ports.

Your home for the week will be the 38 meter, motor-yacht Harmonia. Spacious, air conditioned cabins and an impressive array of on-board amenities ensure your stay onboard is comfortable and enjoyable. Each day you’ll disembark on a different island for a scenic ride on quiet roads. Knowledgeable local guides lead the rides, allowing you to enjoy the stunning scenery rather than studying maps and route notes. On most afternoons there will be opportunities to enjoy swimming from the boat using the water-level swim platform at the Harmonia’s stern.  Each evening the boat moors in a different medieval port giving you somewhere new to explore on your after dinner stroll.

Korcula Town

Korčula Town

After a night in the historic and beautiful port of Dubrovnik, the Harmonia slips her moorings and embarks on a gentle cruise through the Dalmatian Archipelago. You’ll enjoy rides on the honey island of Mljet, and the tiny paradise of Lastovo. You’ll also enjoy a day’s ride on Korčula, possibly Dalmatia’s most beautiful island and Hvar with its beautiful capital and wild lavender fields. After a final memorable ride on the island of Brač, your cycling holiday will culminate with a night in the ancient port of Split.

The daily rides cover between 23 and 60 kms each day and invariably include some climbs of one kind or another. The bikes predominantly used used on this tour are state-of-the-art e-bikes although hybrid models are also available for those that like a challenge.

Day 1: Dubrovnik



The boat is moored at Gruž, Dubrovnik’s town port, and check-in is between 2pm to 2.30pm. A guided walking tour of the old town takes place at about 4.30pm. The Harmonia remains moored in Gruž for the night so why not step ashore after dinner for an evening stroll through the atmospheric old town.

Day 2: Mljet Island, 17.5 miles/28 kms


Pomena, Mljet

After breakfast we cast off and enjoy a short cruise to the sparsely populated and verdant island of Mljet. The island is mentioned in Homer’s “Odyssey” as the home of the Nymph Calypso who used the island’s charms, along with her own, to entice King Odysseus to be her long-term guest. After disembarking in the tiny port of Sobra we begin our first ride, following quiet roads along the length of the island to Pomena on the western tip. Along the way we’ll enjoy stunning sea views out over the Adriatic. We then re-board the Harmonia for dinner and spend the night at our peaceful mooring in Pomena.

Day 3: Lastovo Island and Korčula Island, 17.5 miles/28 kms

Korcula Town

Korcula Town

During breakfast we cruise westwards to the Island of Lastovo, one of the smaller inhabited islands in the Adriatic. Today’s peaceful cycle tour leads us across this serene island to the charming old town of Lastovo with its amphitheater setting and ornate chimneys.

After returning to the boat we lunch on board wile the crew cast off for an afternoon cruise across to the island of Korčula.  The view of the old town of Korčula, jutting out into the Adriatic, as we approach from the sea is stunning so have the camera ready!  We moor for the night in this stunning medieval port town.  Like Venice, Korčula claims to be the birthplace of Marco Polo and it’s not hard to imagine the great explorer striding the narrow winding streets of this atmospheric place. A guided city tour will give you an overview of the city and its features. In the evening take a wander through alleyways and soak up the vibe of this stylish town.

Day 4: Korčula Island: Korčula Town – Vela Luka, 37.5 miles/60 kms

Looking down at Kneza

Korcula – Looking down at Kneza

Many consider the island of Korčula to be the prettiest of the Dalmatian Islands and today you can form your own opinion as you cycle from one end of it to the other. Remember to stop and take in the stunning views of the surrounding blue seas and neighbouring islands as you wend your way westwards. The views from the south coast road midway through the ride are particularly jaw-dropping and you’ll also find opportunities to stop for a refreshing swim along the way if it’s hot. The Harmonia is waiting for you in the pleasant sheltered port of Vela Luka where she remains moored for the night.

Day 5: Hvar Island: Hvar – Stari Grad – Jelsa, 22 miles/35 kms

Stari Grad, Hvar

During breakfast the Harmonia cruises across to the island of Hvar, mooring in the island’s beautiful capital, Hvar Town. The Renaissance Square is magnificent as is the view from the Spanish fortress that overlooks the town. The latter can only be savoured if you’re prepared to invest in a bit of climb on foot but it really is worth the effort. Today’s ride leads us up out of Hvar Town and over a headland past small villages and lavender fields. The views are incredible and the fragrant air often attracts kaleidoscopes of butterflies. An exhilarating descent delivers us to the pretty artists port of Stari Grad where we enjoy lunch on board before embarking on a short but pleasant ride to the small port of Jelsa. The Harmonia moors for the night in this charming little port..

Day 6: Brač Island: Bol – Pučišća, 14 miles/23 kms



A breakfast cruise brings us to Bol on the island of Brač. Brač is the longest island in the Dalmatian archipelago and as it also boasts the most elevation so you know that today’s ride will include some climbing. Though quite big, Brač is actually a quiet, peaceful island and today’s ride will give you a unique insight into authentic local life. The locally quarried white marble is famous around the world not least because it was used to build the White House in Washington DC. After traversing the island our ride concludes in the secluded and very picturesque port of Pučišća where the Harmonia is waiting for us. We remain moored for the night in this idyllic little place.

Day 7: Brač Island: Pučišća – Supetar – Split, 16 miles/25 kms



Our last bike ride leads us along the northern shore of Brač from Pučišća to Supetar. Along the way you’ll enjoy wonderful views across the strait to the mainland and Mosor. Mountain. Supetar is a bustling little port and here we emabrk for our final cruise of teh holiday across to Split on the mainland. In the afternoon we enjoy a guided walking tour of the fascinating and beautiful old town of Split. The core area of the old town was once the huge palace of Roman Emperor Diocletian and our guide does a wonderful job of breathing life into the the ancient buildings. The boat remains at her mooring overnight so after and enjoyable farewell dinner on board why not step ashore for another stroll through the old town to experience Split’s famous nightlife.

Day 8: Departure

After breakfast it is time to disembark and head for home or your next adventure.
