Dalmatia cycling activity is one of the most popular vacation adventures. It is ideal for getting around since it doesn't require any fuel, it's environmentally friendly and it helps you stay in shape.
Cycling also helps you to get to know the destination better, its historical and natural sights, and it makes taking breaks at restaurants and cafes easy.
You can easily get to places that cannot be found in guides, like hidden bays, and there are so many such places on Centrale Dalmatia islands.
This time I have explored the best cycling routes on three islands in Dalmatia – Brac, Hvar, and Vis. Most of them have cycling routes and offer many guided cycling tours.
Some island cycling routes are listed and some are not. You can hire a bike already in Split town, or if you prefer you can rent bikes at your island destination.
Have in mind that you'll have to pay for bike transport so make sure you check the price before buying the ticket. Bike price depends on the destination but it starts at €2 for a short trip and never exceeds €10. Don't forget that Jadrolinija (local ferry company) does not allow bicycles on catamarans.
What Dalmatia cycling activity looks like?
Most biking holidays on Central Dalmatia islands are hop on, hop off trips. It's important to make a plan of your cycling adventure in advance. The first, you should know the ferry times.
The second important thing, you have to know the cycle routes where to start. If you start from Brac island, take a look at this island's cycling routes that will be of great help.
If you decide to start from Hvar island, the ferry from Split to Stari Grad (Hvar island) is the best option. On this website you can find all-island Hvar cycling route maps.
What are the island's cycling routes like?
On any of the islands you start your cycling activity, you won’t need to be super-fit to set out on a biking tour. The roads that most tour operators choose are quiet and safe.
Thanks to the hilly and steep ground, it will mostly delight mountain biking fans, but even those who prefer classic cycling will not be left out.
There are various trails, marked, unmarked, more and less arranged, but they all have one thing in common – they are located in a beautiful landscape that will simply leave you breathless.
Among the many bike trails in Dalmatia, the islands boast some of the most beautiful. Therefore, I have decided to mark off the most beautiful trails on Hvar, Brac, and Vis.
