Croatia: The Dalmatian Islands

Don’t be fooled by knock-offs—this VBT vacation is authentic Croatia at its best! For more than 15 years, we’ve cycled Croatia’s Dalmatian Islands, discovering the best bike routes, waterfront accommodations, and pristine, turquoise beaches. Most importantly, we’ve dedicated ourselves to making friends across the archipelago, swapping stories with local skippers, discovering hidden vineyards and olive groves—even pausing to pet local donkeys. With VBT’s deep Croatian roots, you have an invitation to share a home-cooked meal around the unpretentious kitchen tables of two local families. As VBT’s Croatian trip leaders guide you on spectacular cycling routes along the azure Adriatic coast, they’ll introduce you to their local friends along the way. When you join VBT on this seminal Croatian cycling vacation, you’re not a tourist—you’re family. 

Tour Highlights

  • Cycle along the harbor of Postira, a beautiful village nestled between the ocean and hillsides graced by centuries-old olive and pine groves.
  • Visit a world-renown stonecutting school.
  • Connect with daily life in this stunningly beautiful region during two home-hosted meals.
  • Behold breathtaking views from Vidova Gora, the “summit of the Adriatic.”
  • Take a dip in the Adriatic at Zlatni Rat, Croatia’s most famous beach.

A VBT representative will greet you at the airport to start your adventure off right. A complimentary car service will whisk you to your centrally located hotel. From here, you are perfectly positioned to explore this charming city at your leisure.

After an included breakfast at the hotel, meet your readily identifiable VBT trip leaders in the lobby at 9:00 a.m. Please have your bags out for collection before 8:00 a.m. so they may be transported to the ferry ahead of the group. You will leave the hotel at 9:30 a.m. and walk to the Split pier for your ferry, which sails at 11:00 a.m. to the port of Supetar on Brač Island.

On arrival at the port of Supetar, minivans will transport your group to the village of Postira and the Hotel Pastura, your home for the next three nights. This welcoming, 4-star hotel’s location is convenient and quiet and features comfortable, air-conditioned rooms with balconies.

A charming and quiet village, Postira dates to the 14th century. Located five miles from Supetar, Postira is nestled between the ocean and hillsides, and is graced by centuries-old olive and pine groves. One of this town’s most famous sites is the remains of a basilica in Lovrecina, on a bay with a beautiful sandy beach.

After lunch on your own, your bike tour of Croatia officially begins. Join your trip leaders for a safety and bike-fitting session, followed by a short warm-up ride along Postira’s harbor and then inland to the small village of Dol.

You’ll enjoy views of the mainland across the water throughout the ride. Stop in the port town of Pučišća and visit the stonecutters’ school. Brač’s world-renowned stone has been used for the construction of some the world’s most famous buildings, including Diocletian’s Palace in Split and the White House in Washington, D.C. This is a unique opportunity to see students’ work and learn about a near-forgotten craft at one of the world’s few remaining stonecutting schools.

After lunch, take a private boat to Jelsa on the island of Hvar. Then, shuttle to Hvar’s fortress overlooking Hvar town for a visit at your leisure before walking downhill (0.8 km) to your hotel. In the event of inclement weather, this transportation operates as noted below.

Nearly 42 miles (67.5 km) long, seven miles (11 km) wide, and only three miles (5 km) at its narrowest point, Hvar is the most famous and seductive Adriatic island. Along with Bali, Zanzibar, Mykonos, and Capri, Hvar has been called “one of the most beautiful islands in the world” by Condé Nast Traveler magazine. Its permanent population of 12,000 people clusters on the western part of the island, adjacent to the most fertile and protected land.

Your hotel’s central location affords the perfect vantage point from which to explore Hvar town, a medieval Croatian settlement with a strong Venetian influence dating to the 16th century. Visit the Arsenal, built in 1612 as Europe’s oldest and perhaps smallest municipal theater. Its purpose was to bring the aristocratic and bourgeois classes together, and it stands as a symbol of reconciliation between social classes and the abolition of privilege—although it should be noted that women were not admitted until the second half of the 19th century. Take in the expanse of Saint Stephen’s Square, the largest Adriatic square after Saint Mark’s in Venice.

Tonight, walk to a nearby home for a delicious dinner. This festive repast starts with a welcome toast and a tour of the home’s garden. Your hosts will teach you how to prepare some of the best local dishes during a group cooking demonstration.

Inclement Weather Itinerary: If rough weather makes it impossible for our small-chartered ferry to operate, guests will travel between Brač and Hvar on the large car ferries that operate via Split, creating a longer travel day.

Today’s ride—certain to be a highlight of your bike tour of Croatia—is relatively flat. After breakfast, take a private shuttle to the town of Stari Grad where we begin today’s scenic loop ride through verdant fields, quiet stone villages, and along the narrow harbor to Jelsa. From Jelsa you’ll skirt the fjord on a flat and picturesque road, perhaps stopping at a small cove for a cooling dip at Mina Beach (don’t forget your swimsuit!).

Your next destination is Vrboska, an adorable harbor town famous for its fortified church. Unique in Croatia, the structure resulted from an urgent need for both the church and the secular citizenry to join together to fortify their village from invaders. Finish your morning ride back in Stari Grad, a charming Dalmatian town situated at the end of a narrow bay. Originally founded in fourth century BCE, Stari Grad (literally “old town”) features a main square that offers a number of options for lunch on your own.  After lunch, enjoy additional time in Stari Grad, shuttle back to the hotel, or continue biking on a longer ride that brings you back to Hvar.

Pass by the parish church dedicated to the Holy Spirit in Vrbanj before descending to the UNESCO World Heritage site of Stari Grad Plain. Dating back to the fourth century BCE, Stari Grad Plain represents a comprehensive system of land use and agricultural colonization by the Greeks that hasn’t changed for the past 2,000 years.  Meet your trip leaders in the village of Vrboska before ending your ride on beautiful Soline Beach with a picnic lunch featuring local delicacies.

Once lunch is finished, enjoy extended beach time or take a 2.2 km walk through the pine forest of the peninsula (weather permitting).  After further exploration, the support vehicle will shuttle you back to the hotel where your trip leaders will give you recommendations on how to spend the rest of the day on Hvar.

Wowsa, what a wonderful adventure. We explored the Dalmatian Islands on beautiful scenic roads... and most importantly from the comfort of e-bikes, which made the "rolling hills" a little easier to ride. Our guides did an outstanding job from day one. Highly recommend this trip!

Great trip! Glad we reserved e-bikes!

This was a fantastic trip taken at the perfect time of the year in September. We were able to ride, swim and dine in gorgeous settings every day. The chance to meet the locals in their homes for dinners and to hear of their lives in Croatia was priceless. We were very fortunate to have two excellent guides in Nevenka and Natasha; they were both so knowledgeable and accommodating, we couldn't have asked for better leaders!

Great experience; great staff!
