The Tour

Cycle and Swim - at the Kvarner Gulf

Bright sunshine, deep-blue water and excellent food - that is what you can expect at Croatia's Mediterranean coast. There are countless enchanting and well-known islands in the Kvarner Gulf between Istria and Dalmatia, all of which have their own unique charm: Rab, Krk, Pag, Cres and many others. On this cycle tour at the Kvarner Gulf you will cycle from island to island - bringing you close to the locals and the beautiful countryside. Due to the local terrain, the stages are not always flat. However, as the individual stages are quite short, cyclists at any level can enjoy the tour. There is also the option to stay on board of the motor sailing boat MS Planka.
