Island Hopping by E-Bike & Boat Southern Dalmatia Plus 2024

Trogir - Stari Grad - Hvar - Vis - Vela Luka - Korčula - Pučišća - Postira - Pučišća - Split - Rogač - Maslinica - Trogir

On Southern Dalmatia Plus cruise, we discover the exceptional natural beauty of the South Dalmatian coastline and island world onboard an elegant small ship. Highlights such as Diocletian Palace in Split, the picturesque old town of Korčula and the lavender island of Hvar, combined with islands of simpler heritage, provides an unforgettable travel experience, a true cultural insight. This cruise is part of a Plus programme. The Plus cruises offer the guests a plus all-round: a comfortable small ship, unlimited e-bike availability, as well as some pleasant surprises along the way. Depending on the weather, it can occur that this cruise is operated in reverse. The itinerary is similar to the regular cruise of Southern Dalmatia making these cruises great alternatives to each other should your preferred cruise date be unavailable.

Day by day Itinerary

Day 1
Trogir - Stari Grad

Individual arrival to Trogir, which is approx 6km away from Split Airport. After embarkation on the small ship between 1400HRS and 1430HRS, the first cruise starts at approx 1500HRS from Trogir to Hvar Island. Stari Grad is the second largest settlement on the Island of Hvar and well known for its important harbour. Overnight stay in Stari Grad.

Day 2
Stari Grad - Hvar - Vis

After breakfast we set off on a bike tour from Stari Grad to the capital of the island, town of Hvar. We will have plenty of time on arrival, to visit the magnificent Renaissance Square of Hvar Town and enjoy the view up to the Spanish Fortress situated high above the town. Back onboard again we cross over to the Island of Vis. Overnight stay on Vis.

Cycle route approx 20km

Day 3
Vis - Vela Luka

Vis is the furthermost island from mainland Croatia. A Greek colony called Issa has been on the island 2,300 years ago. Due to its strategic location it was a military zone until 1995 and prohibited for foreign tourists. Today we have the opportunity to explore the lovely island by bicycle. After cycling the boat takes us to the Island of Korčula. Overnight stay in Vela Luka.

Cycle route approx 32km

Day 4
Vela Luka - Korčula

Today we discover the Island of Korčula by bicycle and enjoy our lunch break in one of the local restaurants. The calmness and remoteness, the vast vegetation and cypress gardens have given shape to probably the most beautiful Dalmatian island. Our cycle tour leads us via the town of Blato, like Rome built on seven hills, along a pass across Pupnat bay and finally to Korčula Town, where we have time to take a walk through the wonderful old town with its narrow fishbone-like alleys. We stay overnight in Korčula Town.

Cycle route approx 60km

Day 5
Korčula - Pučišća - Postira - Pučišća

Today we cruise to the Island of Brač, which is famous for its radiant, precious limestone that was, among others, used for the White House in Washington or the Reichstag building in Berlin. After an extended swim break followed by lunch, we start our cycling trip in Pučišća. With an initial climb we will be rewarded with fantastic views over the neighbouring islands before descending to the harbour of Postira. From here we take the coastal road back to the boat in Pučišća where we spend the night. The quaint harbour town is home to the most famous stonemasonry school in Croatia and the works of the students can be seen on display throughout the town. The night is spent in Pučišća.

Cycle route approx 45km

Day 6
Pučišća - Split

During breakfast the boat brings us to the city of Split. The old town of Split, built adjoining the famous palace of the Roman Emperor Diocletian, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Today we have the choice either to take a bus transfer to go rafting through the Cetina Canyon (not included in the cruise price) or to explore the wonderful Marjan forest park in Split by bike. The rafting group will be picked up from the boat by a bus and taken to Omiš for the excursion. From here they will follow the river downstream in the rafts gaining a unique perspective of the canyon and its flora and fauna. Participants of the rafting trip are brought back to the boat in the bus after the activity. Cyclist will enjoy a short but scenic bike tour through the green heart of Split, accompanied by an extensive swim break at a local beach. In the afternoon we can explore the bustling city of Split again together as one group. Overnight stay in Split.

Cycle route approx 17km

Day 7
Split - Rogač - Maslinica - Trogir

After crossing over to Rogač on the Island of Šolta we commence our last cycle tour. Walled fields, numerous olive groves, locust bean and fig trees line the roads. The herbal scent of rosemary accompanies us along our tour across the island. Our boat awaits us in Maslinica, and we enjoy our last crossing back to Trogir where, if time permits, we can take a tour of the old town which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The last evening aboard our ship follows a nice tradition. While enjoying a communal dinner in a cosy atmosphere you will have the chance for a last get-together with your crew and your tour guides.

Disclaimer
Due to specific mooring conditions and requirements in some Croatian Ports, multiple ships are moored side by side. This makes it necessary to cross from one ship to the other where there are gaps in between each ship. Special care must be taken at all times when crossing between the ships, and guests do this at their own risk. Crew assistance will be given to those needing and requesting it. View from cabin windows and balconies may be obstructed when moored in port and alongside other ships. Cruises are not recommended for those in wheelchairs or with limited mobility.
