Biking program Cruise Croatia on itinerary:

THE PEARLS OF NORTH DALMATIA (ZADAR - ZADAR) - THE EXACT ITINERARY BELOW!

 
Day 1: Saturday/ ZADAR – KUKLJICA, UGLJAN
The check in starts at 12 PM and lasts until 5 PM and afterwards you`ll have enough time to make yourself at home and meet the other guests and crew with the traditional welcoming drink. Once on board, you can become acquainted with the crew and fellow passengers. There is the opportunity to explore the blossoming old city of Zadar. This historical city is conquered at some point in time by almost all historical Mediterranean cultures, which is reflected in its architectural properties. In the afternoon or evening (when all the passengers have arrived) the gulet will set for the island of Ugljan. In the village Kukljica we will moor and spent the night in the port or possibly at anchor, if the weather permits.
 
Day 2: Sunday/ KUKLJICA – MULINE (25 mi. – 40 km)
In Kukljicaour cycling trip will take us towards Muline, leading mostly along remote paths with breathtaking views. In the distance the island of Pasman is visible with its bridge over the Strait of Zdrelac. The trip will take us along the Gospa Snjezna, which isthe chapel of the Lady of the Snows. Also, in the south-west the Island Dugi Otok interferes the horizon, the north parts of this Island contains some very deep caves man-dug into the mountainside. Accessible from sea the caves where created to hide submarines and other naval warfare ships during the cold war.
 
Day 3: Monday/ MULINE - MOLAT- SILBA (16 mi. – 25 km)
After a three hour trip by boat, the first destination is Molat, after which you will enjoy a 16 mile bike loop, exploring this island covered with maquis and pine forests. Molat has one of the most beautiful bays of Croatia and is far removed from usual tourism. Along the route the former Italian concentration camp Logor is situated. During the WWII nearly 20.000 prisoners were held in captivity, 5% of those lost their lives in Logor. Some ruines and watchtowers is all that remains of this tragedy nowadays.
Second on the agenda is Silba. Cars are not permitted here and during the summer months, even cycling is prohibited, so a hiking itinerary is planned. It is best explored by foot! The island is only 8 km long and on its narrowest part is located the sole settlement of the island: Silba. With as its front garden one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. Numerous footpaths lead to other beaches and tranquil bays, there is also the Toreta to visit, an impressive tower with a stunning view of the surroundings. In the evening there is the opportunity to go ashore and enjoy the tranquil ambiance. Depending on the weather, the night will be spent here or at another location.  
 
Day 4: Tuesday/ SILBA - VELI LOŠINJ – CRES (28 mi. – 45 km)
From Silba, the boat sets off for Veli Losinj, from where the cycling begins, leading around the island Losinj to the southernmost point of the island of Cres. You will cycle along the coast and through rustic villages, including Osor where a swingbridge connects Losinj and the island of Cres. Along the way you will find a replica of a Greek bronze athlete from the 1st century BC (the Apoxyomenos), the tower of St. Mary’s Church, in Osor the 15th century cathedral and a 17th century Bishop’s Palace which is currently used as a museum. The roads take you largely through impressive pine forests that provides some cooling for the sunshine. St Pierre’s monastery later on is also worth a visit. After the ride, there is enough time to enjoy various water activities in the bay. 
    
Day 5: Wednesday/ CRES - LOPAR, RAB (22 mi. – 36 km)
This morning, the boat departs from Cres and heads to Lopar on Otok Rab (approximately 3 hours of sailing). The route includes the villages Supetarska, Draga, Kampor, Barbat, and Pudarica and then back to Rab. Along the way the observant cyclist will see the island Trstenik with her lighthouse on the far horizon and the Eufemijamonastery which can be visited. In the city most loved by the medieval aristocrats our ship will be moored. Rab is a captivating, ancient Mediterranean town with the most breathtakingly beautiful places in the entire Adriatic, with its the numerous Gothic and renaissance palaces and churches all build on top and over each other. Overnight will be spent in the harbor.
 
Day 6: Thursday/ RAB - LUN – NOVALJA – POVLJANA – PRIVLAKA (25/38 mi. – 40/60 km)  
From Rab we can almost see the most northern tip of Otok Pag. The cycling distance today ranges from 20 to 60 km, leaving you the ability to choose how ambitious you want to be! First our boat will moor in Lun to disembark our most courageous bikers. From Lun the route to Novalja starts with a literally breathtaking slope of 20% for approximately 700m and after that a more comfortable climb to Lun (1.5 km). The remaining kilometres to Novalja is a piece of cake.
Novalja is the tourist center of the island of Pag. Lots of cafes, bars and other entertainment venues are present. Behind the church we find the remains of Roman underground water channels (known locally as the Talijanova buza, “the Italian hole”).
Leaving Novalja we are now entering the part of Pag, where sheep farming is the main source of income. The hard spicy sheep’s cheese (Paški Sir) holds in taste between cheddar and parmesan cheese. The typical taste is because the cheeses are coated with a mixture of olive oil and ashes before they are ripened. In addition, the sheep eat the common sage (green / gray plant), which gives a salty taste to the cheese.
Along the way in the distance you will see the flatland and the mountains of the Croatian mainland on your left, and a steep mountain ridge with worn stone quarries on your right. Best have your cameras ready. The quarries houses lots of different wild life such as swallows and foxes but unfortunately, the quarries are also used for the deposit of waste
The center of Pag is formed by the romatic square “Trg kralja Petra Krešimiria IV” with the Rector’s Palace (Knežev dvor) and the parish church (Zupna crkva), both built by the Dalmatian architect Juraj Dalmatinac. “Stari Grad”, the old town of Pag contains ancient 15th century ruins of a Franciscan monastery and a church from 1392 with a gothic relief of Mary above the portal. If you are looking for souvenirs head for the local shops selling the Pagse cheese, olive oil and traditional Croatian lace. The last miles of the day brings us from Pag to Povljana we our ship awaits. During dinner we head for Privlaka where we spend the night.
 
Day 7: Friday/ PRIVLAKA – ZADAR (20 mi. – 35 km)
From Privlaka we cycle through the village of Nin and dom Zaton, about 35 km along the coast to Zadar. As well as the rest of the entire coast area, the city of Nin fell under Venetian reign in the 15th century which made it a prosperous village at that time. Later on threatened by the Ottomans Nin was massively evacuated and fell into oblivion. What remains is the cruciform Holy Cross Church from the 9th century. A little further you will see the remains of a Roman house with mosaic from the 2nd century and close by the remains of a Roman temple from the 1st century. We pass the Archaeological Museum and the 18th century St Anselm’s Church, the latter is definitely worth a visit. Along the way we pass the huge statue of Bishop Grgur Niski, who was the first bishop appointed in 879.
The church Sv. Nikola from the 11th century adorns the bike ride, it was built on a mound and converted into a fortress by the Turks. The church is unfortunately not open for public.
Halfway the route in Petrčane one always finds a lot of tourists who come for the beaches. But once a year the area is flooded with youth attracted by the famous Garden Festival with modern dance music, DJs and other performances, where in addition to the Croats many British and Irish youth enjoy their holiday. Our boat is located in the port of Zadar and after dinner everyone who feels tempted can enjoy the lively nightlife of this Mediterranean seaside town.
 
Day 8: Saturday/ ZADAR
Our last breakfast together will be served on board, after which we have to say goodbye to this fabulous ship, the crew and, hopefully, new friends you`ll get in these 7 days. Check out is until 10am.
