Itinerary

We start at 2pm in either Split or Dubrovnik on the first day with a brief walking tour before boarding our gulet at 4pm. Our island hopping starts right away from “the pearl of the Adriatic”. Over the following 6 days we’ll work our way along the Peljesac peninsula, Hvar and Korcula before finishing in the ancient towns of either Split or Dubrovnik. Besides great cycling roads you will discover ancient UNESCO sites, charming villages, vineyards and the stunning beautiful Dalmatian coastline. The boat anchors in the most beautiful bays of Brač, Hvar and Vis, Mljet, Sipan, Korčula and Lastovo. Our tour will end the following Friday after breakfast. We’ll disembark and say farewell in either Split or Dubrovnik at 9am and then you’ll be free to explore the old town. We can arrange for transfers back to either Split or Dubrovnik.

This will be a 6 night / 7 day tour.

The rides

Distances: 0–60 km per day with a total of 130–300 km including all options, with lots of variety.

This is a moderate tour - generally rolling or hilly terrain; if you are concerned about some of the hills (maximum 500m climbing on a few of the days) consider ordering an e-bike. Most of the routes are paved but there are some gravel roads which we use from time to time for access to the most stunning scenery.

Please note there is no support vehicle on this tour.

The gulet

Built in 2007, our guests can benefit from the panoramic views from the upper deck where you will find sun loungers and extra seating. Alfresco dining is available both in the deck area as well as the spacious saloon. Each room is equipped with either a double bed (Double) or two single

deckdiningbeds (Twin); there are 4 of each and these will be allocated on a first come, first served basis so please note your preference when registering your interest. Each bedroom comes with its own private en suite bathroom featuring shower, sink & toilet. There is wi-fi internet on board, TV, DVD & CD library, Playstation, iPod docking station, and music system. There are two 2-person kayaks, snorkeling gear, water-skiing, Waverunner, 15ft dinghy with 50 hp Yamaha motor, and a BBQ. The fantastic crew members are specially trained to provide discreet and quality service and will take excellent care of you. All of them speak English, so you will have no problem with communication. The captain’s knowledge and experience in sailing and navigation will make your voyage not only comfortable, but very secure.

Meals, wines and beverages:

All meals will be included and are served on board our gulet and are prepared by our private chef. All drinks and wines are included: 6 breakfasts, 5 lunches and 6 dinners. Our chef will be delighted to prepare dishes to meet guests’ special wishes and dietary requirements. Dishes will be served with, for example, capers, samphire, truffle, motar (Chrithmum maritimum) and small onions pickled in the Antisic family tavern, seasoned with sea salt from Ston and harvested in karst karrens of open sea islands, and homemade red and white wine vinegar. Expect to be invited into the kitchen for a demonstration of how to prepare, for example, the finest gnocchi!  Fresh bread and produce is delivered to the boat each morning from local markets and bakeries.  We will also dine in one of Padraic's favourite restaurants - Dalmatino on Hvar: his friend Dennis takes excellent care of our guests. We also visit Rocki's agriturismo on Vis for a very authentic lunch in the vineyard and get to sample their fabulous wines.
