Join in a spectacular bike and boat tour along the Croatian sea coast and in the beautiful Northern Velebit National Park. You will have the chance to visit historical and traditional villages and towns, enjoy the landscape of the Adriatic coast, bike along amazing landscape, and of course relax and swim in the pristine sea.
You will be accommodated at Klenovica camp in luxury mobile houses for 3 nights.
You can come to Klenovica either by yourself or if you prefer to one of the 3 nearby airports where Cycling Adriatic can pick you up. Luxury mobile houses in Klenovica camp will be your home and starting point for next 3 days. Let’s meet each other with a welcome drink on the house terrace or by the pool and learn all about the activities and agenda in the upcoming days. You can try the bikes and Cycling Adriatic will fit them for you. You can choose between regular or eBike models (MTB and touring). You will also have free time for lunch / dinner and swimming.
Today, you are taking a boat and starting with an easy 1,5-hour cruising. Breakfast will be served on a boat. Boat trip ends in Baška witch is place of an interesting history that dates back to the prehistoric period, with astounding sights dominated by the 1800 meters long pebble beach, Vela Plaža, and miles of mountain trails leading to unique landscapes such as the Moon plateau, an entire century of tourism and numerous customs; all waiting to be discovered in Baška - a small place with big traditions.
Short ride through the center and coffee break. If you choose MTB, you can continue on the trail road up to St. Ivan and reach Moon plateau on top of the Baška, than you continue on mixed terrain towards Vrbnik. If you choose touring bicycle, you ride straight to Vrbnik, mostly on side roads with magnificent view. First mentioned in 1100, Vrbnik is undoubtedly one of the most famous Croatian villages. It became famous thanks to its Glagolitic heritage. When Croats arrived to Vrbnik it became a fortress with spectacular view. It became widely known after the song “Vrbnik above the sea” and the Golden Vrbnik Žlahtina wine.
On arrival to Vrbnik, you will taste famous Žlahtina wine. Short ride through the place and your boat will pick us up. Lunch is ready and served on the boat. On the way back you will stop on a nice swimming spot. After, you will enjoy free time for dinner and rest.
Rab has a rich history with many historical figures. Settled by Illyrians in 350 BC, Rab became an ancient Roman municipality in the 1st century BC and developed into a center of the eastern coast of Adriatic, called Felix Arba (Arb is Illyric for dark, lush). Its glory days began between the second half of the 11th Century all the way to 13th century, when it was governed by the Croatian rulers, as well as members of the Venetian Republic in a form of a free Adriatic commune. It was later sold to Venice in the 15th century and remained in their rule until the end of the 18th century followed by a brief interlude under Napoleon.
Same as previous day, you will first enjoy a boat trip and breakfast, you will have around 2,5 hours of boat cruising ride. You will reach Lopar on the Island of Rab, where you will start your round tour. Finish will be on Heavens beach, with nice scenery on lookup on the bay and in the back on Velebit mountain range.
You will jump on the boat again, and on the way back to Klenovica and have lunch. You will stop on Goli otok (literally translated Naked Island) - aka. „Croatian Alcatraz“. There you make a short tour to see, listen to the story, and lookup inside of the most famous prison in Croatia during socialism. Free time for dinner and the rest of the day. You will say goodbye to your captain who drove you around for past two days. Tomorrow you’ll look all those places you visited but from another perspective, from the mountain peak.
After check out, you have a short transfer with the vans to the entrance of the national park. The Northern Velebit National Park is recognizable by its preserved biodiversity, a richness of the natural phenomena and experience of pristine wilderness.
