Cycling in Croatia
Croatia offers well-kept cycling trails, beautiful vistas, rich historical heritage, and heavily-aromatic mountain pine forests. When adding hot weather and crystal clear sea, it’s obvious that cycling in Croatia is a unique experience. The wild and rarely visited mountains and the popular seaside destinations resonate in a wonderful symphony on our Croatia biking tours.
We curated a list of top reasons why cycling in Croatia is so tempting and why you should definitely put the Adriatic coast on your biking bucket list!
During the peak summer season, Croatian islands can be packed with tourists. This is why our cycling Croatia tours are organized in pre-season, before the summer, and in fall when bikers can peacefully explore the infinite coast in perfect temperatures. Outside the main tourist season, the sunny Adriatic coast transfers into real biking heaven. When you’re cycling in Croatia with us, we always focus on secret trails and discrete places, where you can be away from the crowds.
Imagine cycling in hills on a stunning trail running alongside the Adriatic coast just before the sun drops behind the horizon. Such experiences and extraordinary views are quite regular on our biking Croatia tours. In the case of leg soreness, the stunning vistas will give you the boost to push forward and discover more fascinating places in Croatia. During your cycling trip in Croatia, you will witness many mesmerizing scenic points, where you can stop and enjoy a panoramic picnic and it can be captured in photos to create even better memories.
FUN SINGLE TRAILS
If you’re looking for fun and not too difficult single tracks, Croatia will surely be your new go-to bicycling destination. Biking in Croatia offers a wide variety mixture of trails for all levels and tastes, while also providing hundreds of kilometers of charming gravel roads that are perfect for biking. Many single trails run right along the coastline, giving you the freedom to refresh yourself by swimming in the Adriatic Sea or simply admire the perspective. When it comes to cycling in Croatia one thing is for sure, the fun will be guaranteed.
We love to head to the coast, especially when we try to get away from the shady autumn months or chilly spring days. Warm sun rays and the soft sea breeze always boost us with positive energy. Combining with supreme biking in Croatia, our joy increases significantly.
Croatia is welcoming cyclists throughout the entire year, however, the weather is the most suitable for biking during spring and autumn. The temperatures are bearable and the chances of getting sunburnt are very low. This kind of weather enables you to bike from morning till dawn, without searching for shade. In the late autumn months, the warm water gives you an opportunity to hop into the Adriatic Sea.
Traditional Croatian culinary is wide and varied. It shares some similarities with nearby cultures such as Slovenian, Italian, Austrian, Hungarian, and Turkish food. The different regions offer their signature dishes, however, fresh seafood is a favourite all along the country’s coast. This is another reason we love bicycling in Croatia as we’re big fans of seafood. Black squid risotto, shrimps “Na buzaru” and octopus “Izpod peke” are just some of the Croatian stand-out dishes that we always suggest.
However, cycling Croatia is much more than just seafood. If you prefer meat or vegetarian food, you will find many other seasonal options.
