Which Cycle Tour

Jump to last reply

I'm undecided which trip is best, for those of you who know these places which offers the best trip, I'm leaning toward this one the National Parks Dalmatia 8day/7 night tour.
1) Arrival at harbour of Trogir. After check in, we cross to Rogoznica, enjoying the fresh sea breeze.
2) In the morning our boat takes us to Vodice. We cycle starting at the resort and soon cross the bridge to the island of Murter. In Slanica, the boat awaits us for the cross over to the island of Dugi Otok. On our way we pass the National Park Kornati - an archipelago in crystal clear water which is known for its rich underwater world. Our destination is the Telašćica Bay. In the local nature park is the Mir salt lake. At the end of the day we take a short hike to the impressive cliffs.
3) We cycle across the island of Dugi Otok until we finally reach the pine forest, agave and tamarisk bay of Božava. From there the boat takes us to the flower island of Molat. We explore the island on a cycle tour. Tonight is spent in the quiet port of the island.
4) During breakfast the boat takes us on a crossing to Preko on the island of Ugljan. Our tour will take us to Tkon on the island of Pasman. There is time to explore the two islands of Pasman and Ugljan. The tour follows the eastern coastline of the islands giving you a great view across the channel to the mainland. After a round tour we will meet the ship again in Preko. A short crossing takes us to Zadar, the century old political, cultural and intellectual capital of Dalmatia. Our guide will take us for an stroll through the bustling streets of the old town centre, characterized by 3000 years of history.
5) The morning begins by boat to the city of Biograd followed by a bike tour around the Vraner Lake. Our goal, the swimming destination of Vodice. The Vraner Lake is the largest fresh water reservoir in Dalmatia and offers many migratory birds. The ship awaits us in Vodice for lunch. An afternoon crossing by boat brings us closer to the Krka waterfalls which we will explore tomorrow.
6) After breakfast we discover the unique naturally formed waterfalls of the national park of the Krka-Canyon. Afterwards the boat takes us to Šibenik out of the Krka river mouth and into the Adriatic. Here the Cathedral of St. Jacob is regarded as the most magnificent sacral buildings on the Adriatic coast. The old town of Šibenik is also worth a visit before we cross to the coral island of Zlarin.
7) In the morning we cruise to Primošten, here we cycle passing small villages, all the way to Trogir. We see many magical views of the town and the island of Čiovo. The afternoon offers enough time for a stroll through the world cultural heritage old town of Trogir, then a farewell dinner together.
8) After breakfast disembarkation until 9 am and individual trip home or extended stay in Croatia.
