Tuesday: Elafiti Islands– Dubrovnik

The Elafiti Archipelago consists of thirteen islands and islets, of which only three are inhabited – Šipan, Lopud and Koločep. In olden times, those islands used to be the summer residence of the Dubrovnik aristocracy, and you may still admire many magnificent mansions. Today’s short bike tour takes us from Šipanska Luka to Sudjuradj on the island of Šipan, and all the way back. From here we will cruise to Dubrovnik, where we will arrive at lunchtime. Dubrovnik is also called the “Pearl of the Adriatic”, since in the Middle Ages the city counted among the most important economic and cultural centres of the Mediterranean area. Today, the Old City unfolds a unique open air museum with countless attractions. After lunch on board, we are invited to enjoy a guided tour through the historic town with its impressive walls. It takes only a few minutes by bus to get to the old town. The bus stop is located right next to the port, the bus leaves every 15 minutes, last return journey around midnight. Tickets are available from the kiosk (12 Kuna per ride) or on the bus (15 Kuna per ride). After the guided city tour, you will have plenty of time to discover the gems of Dubrovnik on your own and to enjoy dinner at one of the numerous restaurants. Stroll through the famous “Stradun”, take a walk along the massive city walls and visit the numerous unique sights. Overnight stay in Dubrovnik (10.7 km).

Cycling Tuesday difficult

Wednesday: Dubrovnik–Pelješac Peninsula–Island of Korčula

We leave Dubrovnik and sail to Prapratno at the Pelješac Peninsula. We will ride our bikes to Ston and Mali Ston, two villages connected by an impressive wall. The wall was built in the 14th century; it is 5.5 kilometres long, hence, the secondlongest in the world. There is also the oldest and largest saline (marine salt works) of the entire Mediterranean area, which was built before Christ. Mali Ston is widely known for its mussel and oyster farming. We then continue our tour via Dubrava and Žuljana to Trstenik, where our boat will be waiting. In Trstenik, we will have lunch on board, before heading to the island of Korčula. Korčula has one of the most beautiful old towns in Dalmatia and because of its fortress-like appearance it is often called “Little Dubrovnik”. In olden times, the island was also called “the Black Island”, due to its vast pine forests. Overnight stay in the harbour of Korčula, where you can visit one of the numerous restaurants for dinner (38.7 km).

We ride through endless lavender fields and vineyards via Velo Grablje to Stari Grad, the oldest settlement on the island, founded in the 4th Century BC as the Greek colony of Pharos. Hvar is also the Adriatic island with the highest number of hours of sunshine and the mildest climate. After our on-board lunch in Stari Grad, we will make an easy bike tour via Vrboska to Jelsa and back to Stari Grad. Overnight stay in the harbour of Stari Grad, the perfect setting for tonight’s Captain’s Dinner (21.1 km in the morning + 21.1 km in the afternoon).

We will ride through traditional old villages – Upper Village, Middle Village, Lower Village – that’s how the three communities on the island are called (Gornje, Srednje, Donje Selo). Passing Grohote, we will reach Maslinica, a village named after the Croatian olive tree (“Maslina”), we load our bikes on deck for the last time and set off for Trogir. On our way we will stop at a bay for lunch and to enjoy a last refreshing swim in the Adriatic Sea. We will reach Trogir in the late afternoon.
