Itinerary

The azure Mediterranean Sea and the Venetian old town of Zadar welcome you on your journey by bike and ship in Dalmatia on your arrival day. After embarking between 11.30 a.m. and 1 p.m., you are already on your way. During a snack on board, the ship crosses over to the opposite island of Ugljan. From Preko you cycle over the Ždrelac bridge to the island of Pašman. In Tkon the ship is already waiting to take you to the nearby island of Murter. Enjoy the sunset in the bay of Podvrške during your first dinner on board. 

After breakfast, you set out to discover the island of Murter. Via Betina you cycle to Tisno, where you reach the mainland again via a lift bridge. Along the picture-perfect Adriatic coastline you cycle to Tribunj. The small fishing village is located on an island and is connected to the mainland via a natural stone bridge. Enjoy a coffee at the harbour during a short break and explore the island. Your destination for the day is the popular holiday resort of Vodice, where you will have dinner.

Today is another highlight of your journey by bike and boat in Dalmatia. You start with the bike tour to the Okit viewpoint. Climbing the 100 metres in altitude is strenuous, but is rewarded with a fantastic panoramic view. Afterwards you roll on to Skradin for a short lunch break on board. The tour continues to the famous Krka National Park. At the probably most famous part of the waterfalls there, the Skradinski buk, you will experience how the Krka falls into the depths over steps up to 100 metres wide. In Skradin, the ship is already waiting to take you to the picturesque medieval harbour town of Šibenik.

After breakfast, take a trip to the Sveti Nikola fortress. Feel transported to the 16th century as you step over one of the strongest fortresses on the Adriatic coast. Back in Šibenik, it's time to relax while the boat takes you through the Kornati Islands National Park. If you like, you can refresh yourself by jumping into the cool water. Your destination is the Telašćica Nature Park on the island of Dugi Otok. During a short circular walk you will experience impressive steep rocks and the salt lake Mir. Back on the ship, the captain's dinner awaits you.

Today's cycling day of your journey by bike and boat in Dalmatia will be spent on the island of Dugi Otok. The island owes its name to its length of 43 kilometres. At its narrowest point, it is only about one kilometre wide. First you cycle to Sali, a former fishing village. With its colourful little houses and the small promenade, the place is particularly suitable for a coffee break. Via Zaglav and Luka, your cycle tour takes you to Savar. The afternoon is at your leisure. You have the opportunity to explore the island on a walk or to sunbathe. 

Today's bike tour takes you through dense fragrant pine forests to the Veli Rat lighthouse. This is the highest lighthouse on the Adriatic. From a height of 42 metres you have a fantastic view over the island and the sea. Your ship awaits you in Božava. After an extensive bathing break in a selected bay, your ship picks up speed and takes you to Molat, one of the smallest and most romantic islands in Dalmatia. It is also affectionately called Flower Island by the locals.

On a bike tour through the island's interior, you cycle past lonely bays from the fishing village of Molat to Zapuntel and back. Afterwards, your ship will take you back to Zadar, the starting point of your journey by bike and ship in Dalmatia. On the way, however, there is enough time for a last extensive bathing break in the Adriatic Sea. In Zadar, a city guide is already waiting to take you into the exciting interior of the Venetian fortress city and to the unique sea organ. Can you hear the sea singing?

Disembarkation is after breakfast until 09.00. Then you set off on your individual journey home or get your transfer to the airport.

Wunderschöne Rad / Schiffsreise
Alles war super. Es war so eine tolle Reise. Schon die Buchung über Rückenwind Reisen war so entspannend. Und unsere Reiseleiter Desiree und Adrian waren einfach nur klasse. Das Schiff war sehr schön, der Kapitän war supernett und alles war so wie man es sich vorstellt. Auch die Touren waren wunderschön. Wir buchen gerne wieder bei Rückenwind.
