Family Bike Tours
Stay in one of our island villas and explore a new destination every day or perhaps you will prefer every other day, it is up to you. We provide a selection of routes suitable for you, stopping along the way for lunch in local restaurants or family homes, exploring the unique culture of each of the islands we visit – local stone masons on Brac, UNESCO historical sites on Hvar or the birthplace of Marko Polo on Korcula.  Family routes are available for children of all ages.

Biking on Brac
Explore the myriad back roads of Brac on your own –  trails lead through the olive fields, by ancient ruins or along the beautiful coast – stop for a swim in one of the deserted bays.  We have detailed bike maps in the villa.  Many of the trails are well groomed, others are natural or fire trails.

Or enjoy an organized bike tour and discover the essence of the island.

Bike from Summit to Sea
You will take the van to the highest point in the Adriatic islands – Vidova Gora. Bike down to Sutivan, one of our favorite island villages. This downhill route leads through old villages, past the stone stone quarries, through the olive groves and some of the most beautiful areas of the island.

End your bike with lunch at local restaurant on the sea. 

Backroad Olive Orchards & Villages
Explore Brac’s cultural heritage on this educational and interesting tour.  Start with a van transfer to a small village in the center of the island.  

From the village, take an easy downhill & scenic route to Donji Humac, a village well – known for its stone quarry, sculptors and stone lace tradition. Passing through quarries and fields you reach Dračevica, one of the oldest towns on the island, with long wine and olive oil making traditions.

Continue through the olive fields to one of the tiny coastal villages – perfect example of untouched village life on unspoiled Brač.  The well-preserved stone architecture and beautiful bell towers are sure to amaze you.

From there, head to seaside Sutivan through olive area with sea views all the way back.  Enjoy lunch, the beaches and the charm of Sutivan before returning home.

Sailing Bike Tours
Stay aboard one of our private sailing yachts, which can accommodate groups from 2 to 30 in style and comfort. Your bikes and local guide will be waiting for you upon arrival at each new island destination. You’ll spend your days biking and exploring. Each evening you’ll moor in a different secluded bay, sleepy village or lively harbor.
