Itinerary

Day 1 Dive into the rich history and culture of Croatia's reborn Dalmatian Coast From bustling Split, home to Roman Emperor Diocletian's Palace, sail to Brač Island Old olive groves, crumbling walls and white woolly sheep line a coastal—and hilly!—bike ride to Pučišća, a quiet fishing village Savor a delicious garden-fresh Croatian dinner.

Days 2-3 Hang out on untouched Adriatic beaches with incredible swimming  Settle into a lounge chair on the sundeck for a boat ride to Hvar before a coastal hike on the lavender-scented island Check out Croatia's most impressive collection of Venetian Renaissance architecture in Hvar Town  Linger over a lunch of fresh-caught seafood and regional delicacies  Later, perhaps pause for gelato by the seaside  Spin past ancient stone terraces topped by tiny plots of vegetables, grapevines, fig trees and lavender en route to Stari Grad.

Day 4 Explore ancient island towns where sentries once kept watch for pirates Kayak the coves of the Pakleni islets, stopping to snorkel, swim and kick back on a tranquil beach  It's a relaxing boat trip to Korčula Island—a great time for reading, socializing or maybe diving off the upper deck!

Days 5-6 Awesome island views keep you pedaling along Korčula's hills past quaint villages, vineyards and almond groves Need a break? Pull over at a family winery to sample sweet white wine  Discover the medieval town of Korčula, a treasure trove of stone palaces and arched bridges  Get to know dazzling Dubrovnik during a guided walk and marvel at its imposing stone fortress walls.

Location, weather played a positive role in our experience. But, it was the people, our leaders that made it special. We will do another Backroads for sure. Thank you!

Why Travel with Backroads in Dalmatian Coast

Everyone at Their Own Pace

We design and support our Dalmatian Coast trips to suit mixed abilities and varied interests—so you can set your own pace, then change things up as the day unfolds. And all guests are free to do the same, traveling together or apart, with no one cramping anyone else's style. Which sounds easy in theory, but it's hard to pull off. Here's more on how we do it.

The Value of Casual Inn Trips

In addition to the ideal balance of comfort and hospitality in our choice of lodgings, this Casual Inns trip includes nearly all of your meals, plus everything from cocktail receptions to the best snacks along the road. So there's rarely a need to reach for your wallet – we've got you covered.

Experts with Secrets to Share

In choosing the ideal experts to enrich your travel experience, we look for people with a wealth of local knowledge, but also the ability to convey their insights in English. Too often travelers find themselves smiling politely, not quite understanding what they're being told. Our experts share intriguing facts, anecdotes and inside stories that stay with you forever.

Your Hotels Are Locked In

It may seem obvious to say the great hotels we tell you about are the ones you'll actually stay in. But the fact is many companies haven't even booked the places they promise and are later forced to settle for inferior alternatives. We book our hotels and exact rooms long in advance—often over two years—so you stay where you expect to stay.

The Best Leaders in Dalmatian Coast

Backroads has the best-qualified people to lead your trip in Dalmatian Coast, and our guests back that up, rating our Trip Leaders an average of 9.75 out of 10 for all-around quality of performance. Get the facts (and no fluff) on how we recruit and develop the very best people for your trip.

We Invented the Multisport Trip

After 30 years of creating Backroads Multisport Adventures, our trip designers know how to blend the perfect balance of biking and hiking with other activities to showcase the best of a region. And then they arrange the seamless transitions that would be so hard to orchestrate on your own—adding dimensions to your trip that are exciting, inspiring and just plain fun.

More Leaders to Support You

On our Dalmatian Coast trips we have an extra leader supporting you along the road and trail—for a total of three, compared to the industry standard two. So we can be in more places at once, giving personal attention to guests traveling at their own pace. Here's more on our Trip Leaders.

Our Superb Bikes Included

A great bike is obviously critical for a great multisport trip; you don't want to gamble on one that's been sourced locally to trim costs. This trip features our acclaimed Backroads Custom Titanium bikes, expertly tuned and fitted, and included in your trip price. Learn why our titanium bikes are ideal for most riders.

We Live in the Neighborhood

Our Trip Leaders in Dalmatian Coast live in the area and are deeply engaged in their communities, giving them unique inside knowledge they're happy to share in making your experience that much richer. They'll introduce you to people, customs and parts of town you'd likely never encounter on your own—and teach you a few local phrases to help break the ice.

A Second Van When You Need It

Backroads is the only active travel company providing two support vans in Dalmatian Coast—because we know it's essential to ensure a truly great travel experience. It doubles our ability to be there when you need us to offer hydration, lighten your load or give you a lift if it's time to take a break. Read more on why two vans make all the difference.

A Variety of Routes Each Day

In Dalmatian Coast you head off each morning after choosing among several expertly designed routes—all with detailed directions, mileage and shuttle options. Unlike trips with one fixed daily route (or worse, one guide that everyone's obliged to follow), you're free to enjoy the best of the region at your pace, stopping wherever you want to explore further.

Our Cultural Roots Run Deep

Thanks to our extensive connections in Dalmatian Coast, Backroads takes you off the beaten track and deep into the region's culture in ways that traditional travel can never hope to do. We know the people and their customs, the legacy of art and architecture, the complex history and politic—and if we're not sure, our amazing local experts can fill in the blanks.

Get the Most Out of Each Day

Coordinating multiple activities throughout a single day can be tricky, but with Backroads you'll never know it. When you explore Dalmatian Coast with us, you switch activities seamlessly without missing a beat. We invented the multisport concept, and we're constantly adding new dimensions and fine-tuning the experience to make it even more enjoyable.
