MTB DEEPER DISCOVERY OF DALMATIAN ISLANDS

MTB + ISLANDS = THE ADRIA BIKE SPECIALTY

 

9 DAYS / SELF-GUIDED

Welcome to the best biking holidays program in the world – The Deeper Discovery of Dalmatian Islands.

Adria Bike cherish the most respectful relationship with nature.

And when we ourselves go mountain-biking here in Croatia, even though we’ve got plenty of highlands to choose our ride from, our personal favourite are the islands.

Isle ride holds a warm place in our hearts.

To ride wild, untamed trails conceived for totally different purposes then just plain mountain-biking with a constant open sea view to award your every effort…

To meet local people stubbornly hesitating to leave their unique old-time ways of living…

To taste their local specialties made only from ingredients that island itself and the sea provide for them…

To feel the sun and the salt  pervading your whole body…

To take an adventure to disconnect yourselves totally from the rest of the world.

Plus the city of Dubrovnik as a cream on top of your cake.

Let everyone get really jealous of your holidays, because what you’ve just rewarded yourselves with is – the deeper discovery of Dalmatian islands.

But please, only one request – when you leave, make sure you leave the islands the same as they were when you first came here. 

 

This is how we do it:

  • Island to island – islands of perfect proportions for your MTB holidays rides.
  • Great trails – trails that not only provide great rides, but also tell stories.
  • Proven routes – routes that were tested over and over and over again..
  • Bikes care – we cherish your bikes as your personal precious. 
  • Preparation par excellence – taking care of all details long before you even take off.

And why we do it:

Because cycling provides a special sense of freedom, but only when blended with authenticity – the food, the smell, the people, the customs – you reach the higher level. That’s what we are here for.

And yes, life is always better when it’s self-guided.

At your own pace.

Under your own terms.

In your own unique style.

ISLAND 2 ISLAND

Dubrovnik 

The most popular tourist destination in Croatia, known for its rich history and ancient architecture, unique enough to become a scenography for HBO Games of Thrones series.

 

Split

Split is the second largest city in Croatia developed around the summer palace of the Roman emperor Dioklecian. The palace is still its greatest attraction, recently enriched with a many art galleries, small shops and thematic bars to create a cosy ambient for its growing number of visitors. Even a short walk around the old town will get you lost inside the labyrinth.

 

Vis

It’s quite difficult for us to describe the island of Vis without sentiment because Vis is our sweetheart of parade – the recent filming of Mama Mia brought the attention of glamour at this tiny corner of the world, but we strongly believe there is still a way to show you the island how it used to be – forgotten in time and space.

 

Brač

Brač is the island of natural attractions. It is the highest of all islands in Adriatic with the mount of Vidova gora up to 778 meters. Zlatni Rat is the most famous Croatian beach designed by nature and nature alone. Desert of Blaca is a single trail ride you wouldn’t believe if someone told you about. You must experience it yourselves.

Brač is also the island of beautiful towns and villages with Mediterranean style architecture. On your trip you will be staying in two of those – Supetar and Bol – but will ride through most of the others.

 

Trogir

Coastal city whose preserved old town, known for its mix of Renaissance, baroque and Romanesque buildings, is an island upon itself.

 

Korčula old town

Medieval part of the city which was built in the Roman era.
