The Tour

Cycle tour in Northern Dalmatia

Island hopping truly is the correct term for this cycling holiday, as a multitude of large and small, mostly green islands are on the itinerary. Zadar and Šibenik are the urban highlights, but this cycle tour in Northern Dalmatia is shaped by forests, the sea and beaches with great swimming opportunities. A bit of stamina won’t go amiss as a lot of the islands feature slight inclines from sea level. However, if you don’t feel like it - why not stay aboard the motor sailer MS Dalmatino.
