Cycling Dalmatia Adventure Holiday
Great time for a Cycling tour
Spring and Autumn (Fall) are magnificent times on the Croatian coast for a cycling tour. The majority of the tourists have not arrived yet and there’s plenty to see and enjoy before the Summer season. On this Cycling Dalmatia Adventure Holiday, you will cycle and see few islands in the Zadar region, magical Krka river and have an opportunity to try out rock climbing in Paklenica National Park. If rock climbing is not to your liking, you can opt to hike Plitvice National Park instead.
We provide trekking bicycles for the tour, but you are free to bring your own if you wish. If you are not sure about your fitness level, have no fear. Every day there will be a van tailing the group and picking up those who do not feel like cycling anymore.
