Activity Level: 2-4
Every Backroads trip is designed to appeal to a wide variety of interests and fitness levels. Several routes and a range of levels are offered each day so you can choose how much or how little activity you want to do. Learn more about how we determine activity levels.
The Dalmatian Coast's landscape is characterized by constant rises and valleys, and the continuously rolling terrain (as well as summertime heat) can make routes feel more challenging than the mileage may suggest.
