Over the last few years, Croatia recognized the importance of active tourism. While swimming in the sea, sunbathing on the beach, and sightseeing historical attractions for some can be more than enough, other travelers seek an adventure.

Island routes for passionate cyclists

Since Croatia is a country of thousand islands, it would be a shame not to explore at least the most attractive ones. Hvar, Brač, Korčula, and Vis are the islands that first come to our mind. While sightseeing by walking through towns or driving from one attraction to another can be fascinating and fun, there are other ways to explore islands. The most adventurous way is cycling through nature or small alleys while stumbling upon hidden locations. This way, you are staying mobile but still can stop when and where you want to and admire beautiful viewpoints, take a photo and enjoy a moment.

Stay in a luxury villa and discover Croatian islands by bicycle.

Three most spectacular islands for cycling


Brač has 25 bike trails, which makes it the first island by the number of cycling routes. Many trails on this island are named after saints, longest amongst them is St. Jurje with 180 kilometers. This route is especially popular with cycling enthusiasts because it starts in Supetar and goes through all of the Brač localities.


Bikining trail Ager on Hvar island is 11 kilometers long delight both for cycling and history lovers. Since ancient times, generations of islanders have left their mark in Faroska Hora or Ager, the largest field on the Croatian island. To date, this is the best-preserved cadastre in the Mediterranean, recognized by UNESCO.


The source of life is the name of the Korčula island cycling trail, inspired by the fact that Blato, the starting point of the trail, has a source of drinking water. The path leads through the picturesque olive tree groves to the north coastline and an archeological site that testifies life in this area from the prehistoric era.

Zipline experience for the brave adventurers

If you get bored of laying on the beach and swimming in the see-through water of Adriatic, you can find excitement on the zipline flight. Whether you book your vacation for summer months or the winter season, zipline polygons are always open. Walking through the green forest sceneries, exploring caves, or cycling on the riverside is nice, but flying above them will literally give you a new majestic perspective. In a hunt for spectacular viewpoints to make your journey to the top more interesting, you can also engage in hiking or rock climbing.

Diving in a search for the piece of history

Adriatic sea hides many underwater attractions. Sea surrounding Vis island has quite a few intriguing pieces of history worth diving for. A Greek cargo ship, an attractive wreck of preserved warehouses and tanks, from 1938 is easily accessible for beginners in diving on the depth of 25 to 50 meters. For more experienced divers there is American aircraft Boeing B17G on the south coast of the island. The wreck is well-preserved, especially the cockpit and body of the aircraft.
