Why do you want to choose a self-guided bike tour? On these trips, you will be riding without the guide, but Adventures Croatia is always “behind the scenes”, making sure logistics run smoothly and offer 24/7 support. One of Adventures Croatia’s missions is to present local culture and customs while offering outdoor activities. Save yourself a lot of time spent on research, choose one of our self-guided bike tours, leave your luggage behind and enjoy the ride! Are the self-guided bike tours tailor-made? Another Adventures Croatia specialty is creating a tailor-made self-guided bike tour. Duration of your holiday, extra services on tours, type of accommodation (sailboat, yacht, hotel, and luxury villa or boutique hotel) and types of transport between the islands can be combined to create unique experiences during your Croatian holiday. Since we are not a big company or booking engine site, your early inquiries for tailor-made tours would be much appreciated! Adventures Croatia's busiest season is during the months of May, June, September, and October. Please plan ahead for your want a custom itinerary. What’s included? Orientation meeting Presented by Adventures Croatia representative. Get a full explanation of tour logistics, daily bike rides, historical and general description of areas to be visited, local wine and dining suggestions and more suggestions based on your preferences. Bike fitting During the bike fitting, we make sure bikes are correctly adjusted for you, and that you are aware of how to use the brakes, gears, etc. As we have 6 different frame sizes, adjustable stems on each bike, different seats (soft, gel, racing-stiff, all-around) and different types of pedals we are sure we can fit our bikes to work well for you. Quality bike rental Road, hybrid, tandem, and children bikes are available for our self-guided trips. Our bikes are serviced regularly and inspected before they leave our base in Split. For pedals, you can choose either flat or toe cage pedals, or bring your own SPD or similar pedals. We do have helmets for you but prefer if you bring your own. Luggage transfer All you have to do is pack and unpack your luggage when changing the hotel; the rest is on us. Road book with detailed cycling maps and route descriptions Each year we put a lot of effort into the development of our maps. We are continuously scouting for new roads! We have created route descriptions ourselves, meaning that we have actually covered every inch of the trail and every bump on the route. The result is a clearly written set of route descriptions that guide you, km by km, along the trail, and supply you with further information as well (points of interest, refreshments, local restaurants, etc.). Something extra you will receive on our self-guided tour is detailed daily descriptions of various sights and natural wonders you will find along the cycling path. Whether it is a historical site, gourmet restaurant, local wine cellar, amazing beach, art gallery or similar, we will point that out for you!
