Spend the day on a cycling tour across the island of Korčula
, from the historic Korčula Town
to the lush vineyards of Lumbarda
. Along the way, you'll make several stops at beaches, scenic vistas, and wineries. First, you'll pick up your bike and meet your guide in Korčula; then, you'll head out on a cycling route south toward Lumbarda. This route passes through fields, villages, and wineries, over asphalt, gravel, and dirt roads with vistas opening up to the Adriatic Sea and the impressive Mt. Ilija
on the nearby Pelješac Peninsula.
The route is gentle and appropriate for all athletic abilities. You'll explore the ancient and historic sites of the eastern side of the island as you work your way to the sprawling village of Lumbarda. Boasting beautiful beaches and centuries-old winemaking traditions, Lumbarda is home to Grk
, a white grape variety that will pair well with your lunch or dinner later on. In fact, some of Croatia's best white wines are produced on Korčula!
A highlight of the day is Bire Winery
, a family-run estate that produces Grk
wine as well as its own varietals, including a rosé. All the wineries in the area produce Grk
(which is unique to this region due to its sandy soil) and Plavac Mali
(a red grape grown extensively across South Dalmatia that acts as a pollinator for the Grk
