Individual arrival by plane to Split. After checking in on the motor yacht between 2 pm and 2:30 pm at Trogir our first cruise starts at 3 pm leading us to Rogoznica – a village on a small island which is connected to the mainland by a dam. Here we also spend our first night.
In the morning we cycle from Rogoznica to Primošten. From there the boat takes us to the city of Šibenik to the spot where the Krka River flows into the Adriatic Sea. After visiting the famous cathedral and the lovely old town we set off again. On the cruise, we pass the lower course of the river Krka following the river bend until we reach Skradin. In the port of the village, we spend our night.
The magnificent port of Skradin is today’s start point for exploring the most famous part of the Krka National Park Krka with its unique waterfalls. In the early afternoon we cycle from Skradin to Vodice. Vodice is a well known holiday town.
In the morning we cycle from Vodice to Murter Island that is connected to the mainland by the lift bridge at Tisno. We pass the bridge and cycle along the waterfront, passing by two very old coastal villages until we reach a small landing place from where the boat takes us on a cruise through the National Park Kornati, an archipelago in crystal clear water which is known for its rich aquatic realm. Our destination is the Nature Park Telašcica. In the evening a walk through the park leads us along the stunning cliffs of the island. The famous Silver Lake – known by movies of Winnetou – is also located in the Nature Park. Overnight stay on the Island of Dugi Otok.
After breakfast, we start our cycle tour from the Telascica Nature Park where we cycle what is virtually a traffic-free road across the Island. We ride clear across the whole island. During the ride, we’re treated to countless unforgettable vistas of the islands in the deep blue sea. We meet the ship later in Savar and then sail to Zadar. Zadar has for centuries, been the political, cultural and spiritual centre of Dalmatia. You will have the chance to take a walking tour through the lanes of the lively old centre. 3000 years of history have left their imprint on the character of this town and there are many things to be admired: the mighty fortified walls with their bastions, the loggia but also the early Romanesque St. Donatus Basilica.
During breakfast, the boat crosses to the island of Ugljan at the channel of Zadar. Today we have a lot of time to explore both of the islands Ugljan and Pašman by bike. Recently they have been connected by a bridge. We cycle along the East Coast, always with beautiful views to the mainland and the ocean. After the cycle tour, we meet the ship and sail back to the town of Primosten on the mainland.
In the morning our motor yacht will take us to island Solta. Olive and fig trees and farmland surround the streets. The spicy smell of lavender and rosemary will follow you throughout the whole tour around the silent island until we reach the village Grohote. During mid-day our last cruise will take us back to Trogir. Here we will have enough time to visit the world cultural heritage and medieval old town. After dinner, it is time to say goodbye to the crew and travel guides.
