Begin your holiday with a stroll through the streets of Krk enjoying a delicious ice cream or take a bath in the beautiful sea. The first introduction with your guide will take place at 6 pm in the lobby of the hotel. If you have any questions you can always contact the in-house bike center. We are here for you!

Day 2, Bike tour Krk - Glavotok, Sunday
(Cycle: aprx. 40 km/700 m of elevation)
The first MTB tour starts after breakfast. You will explore Krk town and the west part of the island by bike. The first stage of this week will take you to the small fishing village of Glavotok, where you can take a swim break. Pine forests, wide nature trails and a few moderate climbs characterize this day. To prepare for the coming days, you will also ride on a few short but varied trails. Afterwards you will bike back to Krk town, where you have enough time to stroll, bathe or relax in the hotel.

Day 3, Bike tour Krk - Vrbnik - Krk, Monday
(Cycle: aprx. 43 km/850 m of elevation)
The vineyards around the town of Vrbnik - once a legendary pirate's nest and now home to the famous Žlahtina wine - along with countless olive trees are one of the iconic features of Krk.
The tour will take you through olive groves, where you can bike between and on the dry-stone walls. Fantastic views, great, technically demanding trails and secluded beaches make this tour to an unforgettable experience. After a long break, during which you will taste some local specialities and the Žlahtina wine, you will ride back to the hotel to end the day there.

Day 4, Bike tour Island Cres, Tuesday
(Cycle: aprx. 33 km/900 m of elevation)
Today you will "hop" to the island of Cres to discover the beauties of this almost forgotten island.
A transfer will bring you to the nearby ferry port, from where you will be taken to the island of Cres by boat. Here, you will climb the first mountain and contemplate incredible views across Cres town and the Istrian Peninsula. From the top, varied flow trails lead through the olive groves of the town of Cres to the historic old town center. You will get to know the colourful history of this island and the countless natural wonders it offers. Of course, you will taste some specialties of the island before heading back to the small ferry port. You will ride back to your hotel in the late afternoon.

Day 5, Bike tour Krk - Baška, Wednesday
(Cycle: aprx. 35 km/800 m of elevation)
One of the highlights of the island of Krk is definitely the small town of Baška on the south-eastern side of the island. Lying remotely in a large idyllic bay, this town is fascinating. Even the way there is a unique experience; the landscape is characterized by one of the strongest winds in the world. The notorious bora of the Velebit Mountains, reaching up to 250 km/h, leaves a true "moonscape" in its wake on this part of the island. It's an incredible feeling to bike through this rocky desert! Partly blocked trails and steeper climbs demand good riding skills. The view of Baška with its two kilometer long pebble beach and the great descent down to it are the climax of today's tour. Once in Baška, you can enjoy your lunch, bathe in the sea or simply relax in this tranquil place. A transfer will bring you back to the hotel in Krk.

Day 6, Bike tour Omišalj - Klimno - Dobrinj - Krk, Thursday
(Cycle: aprx. 55 km/900 m of elevation)
A transfer will take you to Fulfinum near Omišalj, where today's bike tour starts and you will visit the remains of one of the oldest basilicas in the region. You will continue to the most northern point of this journey, and ride on a stony trail through another lunar landscape to get to a stunning stalactite cave – definitely worth a visit! Afterwards you will cycle to the famous bay of Soline, where you are invited to take a soothing bath in the healing mud. A short climb will bring you to Dobrinj, where you will contemplate a great view and enjoy a typical local lunch. After lunch you will cycle back to Krk town in the late afternoon. There you can celebrate this eventful week by enjoying an incredible sunset casting its colours across the Adriatic.

How far in advance do I need to book?

Cruises: For our weekly small ship cruises with guaranteed departures we suggest you book as soon as your plans are in motion. All cruises are extremely popular especially during peak season, which is June, July, August, September and these dates can be booked out up to a year in advance, especially September. One-way cruises are particularly sought-after and tend to sell out first, so please speak to us first to ensure your cruise choice is available before booking any flight arrangements.

Escorted Tours: Escorted Group Tours with guaranteed departures are also best booked as early as possible to ensure your place on the tour, as spaces are limited to a set number of passengers. Once the tour is full that departure is closed for new bookings.

Island Hopping, Self-Drive, Self-Guided Cycling/Hiking and Independent or Private Tours: Independent tours are available most days of the week at any time of year, so if you're booking late these are a great option. They can also start or finish on any day of the week, so can be a great alternative to the cruises (that mostly depart only on Saturdays). You can check out our Island Hopper Tours and our active tours for some examples. If you can't find what you are looking for please make an enquiry on any of our tours and let us know what you need. We love creating custom tours with our clients.

What do the different ship categories mean?

Please see our Ship Descriptions page here, for all the information on Ship Categories, Deck and Cabin Descriptions.


What is half-board? What meals are included?

Half-board (HB): This means that 2 meals a day are usually provided, mostly it will be breakfast and lunch on cruises, and breakfast and dinner on escorted tours. Each cruise or tour will have meals listed on the daily itinerary, so that you will know exactly which meals are included. Some lunches or dinners are swapped occasionally, so that you may enjoy a wonderful gourmet experience with your fellow travellers, such as a Captain's Dinner on a cruise, or a wine-tasting and lunch on an escorted tour. For the remainder of your meals you will be able to dine anywhere you choose and you will be responsible for the cost of those meals. Your Cruise or Tour Director will be happy to recommend a good value and trusted eatery nearby at every location, or you can explore on your own.

Bed and Breakfast (BB): This means that only breakfast is included in your holiday. Most of our Independent Tours include breakfast only, so that you are not beholden to going back to your hotel for lunch or dinner as you are going to be exploring on your own. We think that flexibility with lunch and dinner gives you the best option for exploring Croatia and experiencing the local culture and cuisine.

Full-board (FB) is occasionally offered on cruises as an optional extra, but we do not recommend you take the full-board option unless you are really sure about it. A lot of the joy of the cruise and tour experiences is to dine in local restaurants, 'konobas' (traditional pubs) and bars, so that you can meet the people who live and work there. Why come all the way to Croatia only to eat on-board for every meal? There are so many fabulous (and even some famous!) eateries. Get out there and taste them!


What type of transport is used on the Island Hopper Tours? Local ferries and vehicle transfers

Local ferries: Local ferries are used between the mainland and the islands where possible. Most of these ferries are fast ferries (high speed catamarans). Our Island Hopper Tours include all ferry tickets, as well as delivery of the ferry tickets to your hotel, when we come to pick you up to take you to the ferry port. In some towns, where some hotels are in the pedestrian zone close to the ferry port (like Hvar), then you will be met at the ferry and directed to your hotel, with luggage assistance if required. If your hotel is outside the pedestrian zone you will be met at the ferry and taken to your transfer vehicle, with luggage assistance if required.

Transfers: Most Island Hoppers have private airport transfers included, and private transfers to/from the ferry ports on the islands. Some transfers will be shared transfers if there are others going to the exact same hotel at the same time and it is a short distance.

How fit do I need to be for my holiday?

Relaxation/cultural cruises and tours: On-board your cruise ship, you will need to be able to negotiate gangways and stairs and be able to step from ship to ship as the cruise ships are moored next to each other sideways and sometimes you need to step across to the next ship. You will be walking mostly on the cobblestone streets through the iconic cities and towns of the region. The excursions are best-suited to those who are capable of walking on uneven surfaces as many old cities and towns have limited totally flat surfaces that can accommodate wheelchairs or walking-frames. Please contact us to ask about your specific circumstances, as we are happy to help plan for your needs as best we can. Assistance will be provided on cruise ships to help you navigate getting on and off, but there are a few limitations. Please ask.

Cycling tours: Although almost completely flat this cycle tour is graded easy to moderate as the daily distance ranges between approximately 15-50 km. You will be biking mostly on the dedicated cycle paths alongside canals, rivers and through the iconic cities and towns of the region. This tour is well-suited to those who have never taken a cycling holiday before as it is flat and predominantly traffic-free and you also have the option of skipping the cycling and relaxing on board.

What happens if I can't attend an excursion?

It is possible to relax at your hotel, on the tour bus or on the boat at any time.

What happens if I can't cycle or hike a stage on an active holiday?

For cycling cruises: If you don't want to cycle it is possible to relax on the boat as it moves to the next port of call.

For cycling and hiking tours: If you don't want to (or can't due to illness or injury) cycle, hike or walk a stage, then we will make arrangements to have you transferred to the next stop on your itinerary so that you can continue with your holiday. Prices for transfers vary widely, so pricing will be provided on an 'as needed' basis only.

What equipment do I need?

Relaxation/excursion cruises and tours: You will need comfortable walking shoes, clothes for relaxing, your swimming costume, and a sunhat. Most cruises are fairly relaxed and casual clothing is fine for all meals, though you may want to take one nice outfit depending on where you wish to dine onshore.

Cycling cruises and tours: You will need comfortable sports shoes, comfortable clothes for cycling, waterproof jacket and trousers, a helmet and a sunhat. We supply a detailed packing list with your information pack.
