Croatia

Favourite Experiences:

  • Biking along the coast on the island of Brac
  • Jumping off our boat into the Adriatic 
  • Shopping for everything lavender in Hvar Town
  • Watching the sunset from the Imperial Fort in Dubrovnik

In July 2015, I visited Croatia to take a bike trip along the Dalmatian Coast with Backroads.

I flew into Split and spent a few days in the city before embarking on the bike trip. First, our group sailed into Bobovisca on the island of Brac. We biked to Pucisca and spent the night before biking to Vidova Gora and into Bol. From Brac, we sailed to Hvar town and spent two nights in Hvar. Next, we sailed to the island of Korcula and made our way by bike to Korcula Town. From Korcula, we travelled to our last stop, Dubrovnik. We spent three days exploring Dubrovnik and soaking up the sun before it was time to head back home.

The Croatian islands are so quiet and beautiful. I am not an avid biker, but I loved biking along the coast and through the quaint villages and vineyards. Below are my favourite photos from my trip to Croatia (sorry there are so many, I couldn’t choose! Croatia is so beautiful):
