Day 1: Explore Split
Split is one of the oldest Roman towns in the Adriatic. Built by the Roman Emperor Diocletian in the 3rd century, it's the administrative and cultural center of Croatia’s Dalmatian coast. After a short welcome briefing, ride your bike to the top of Marjan Hill, the main recreational site for the residents of Split. Enjoy an optional ride along the coast to a nearby village, or a longer 50-mile (80 km) loop ride. In the evening, explore the 1,700-year-old Diocletian's Palace — a UNESCO World Heritage Site — along with the Peristyle, Diocletian's Mausoleum, and several Romanesque houses.
Cycling distance: 6–12 miles (10–20 km), optional ride 50 miles (80 km)
Day 2: Cycle around Brač Island
Take a slow ferry to Brač, the largest of the central Dalmatian islands. Brač is bursting with historic sites dating back to ancient Greece and the Middle Ages. Enjoy some easy cycling through coastal towns and villages, or climb up to the older settlements in the interior, which are rich in architectural, cultural, and historical monuments. Brač is also famous for its stone sculptures and quarries, which were used in the construction of Diocletian's Palace and the White House in Washington, D.C. Take a late ferry back to Split.
Cycling distance: 20 miles (30 km), optional ride 50 miles (80 km)

Day 3: Bike on the Island of Šolta
Discover the island of Šolta – so close to Split, but far from modern life. You'll feel like you've stepped back in time! Enjoy thrilling rides on picturesque roads, through villages, olive groves, and vineyards. See a traditional way of life on a farm, and enjoy the island’s coves and bays. You can choose your biking route today: ride on the road with great views of Split and the mainland, or gaze out over the endless sea on the southern side of the island.
Cycling distance: 25 miles (40 km)
Day 4: Discover Hvar Island
Today you will visit the island of Hvar. Cycle through lavender fields, olive groves, and vineyards. Pass through the small towns of Jelsa and Vrboska until you reach Stari Grad, the oldest settlement on the island. If you are up to the challenge, bike to the top of the island, passing ancient Greek walls. Enjoy the view from the top, before a big downhill ride to Hvar. Treat yourself to a drink in the ancient piazza of Hvar overlooking the Venetian loggia, 7th-century fortification walls, and the oldest municipal theater in Europe.
Cycling distance: 20–55 miles (32–90 km)
Day 5: Departure from Split
Say goodbye to beautiful Croatia! Your tour ends in the morning after breakfast.
