Two dreams in one package
> Your ship, MS KALIPSA, will take you from port to port.
> By bike you will climb the panoramic heights of the Istrian islands in the north of Croatia.
You will not forget this trip so quickly:
> You can enjoy the cycling tours as ‘classic cycling tours’ on country roads and country lanes.
> But you can also look forward to exciting sporty, steep mountain bike trails.
And the best: You can combine everything spontaneously and flexibly as you wish – and let yourself be spoiled by the Croatian hospitality on the ship and the many beautiful ports.
The nice and experienced crew knows how to guide you into each day with stories and tips. A local tour guide accompanies you with fun and good tips on bathing bays, excursion destinations and cycle routes.
Their ship is MS KALIPSA, a converted former motor sailer. The cabins were freshly renovated in 2023 and the sail rigging was dismantled. Please also take a look at the tour 232,“Istrian Islands of Croatia de luxe“, which has the same route. It offers other dates on two slightly more comfortably equipped ships, MS Antonella and MS Meridijan.
