Known to have the clearest waters in the Mediterranean and undoubtedly packed with historical and cultural interest, the Dalmatian Coast is one of the true wonders of Europe. We follow some of the best cycling routes the area has to offer with much of the tour taking place on the long and beautiful islands of Hvar and Korcula, travelling by ferry between the islands. The scenery alternates between seaside villages, tiny medieval towns, and pretty pebble bays. We end our journey in the fascinating UNESCO city of Dubrovnik where we spend two nights soaking up the atmosphere of this uniquely preserved city. *Temporary changes due to COVID-security measures.**Last updated: 22nd October 2020* At Exodus we acknowledge our responsibility to have the most up-to-date information on anything that will affect our customers on holiday, and to communicate this to our customers as effectively as possible.Our general global COVID security measures are described in our Travel">https://www.exodus.co.uk/travel-safety-charter">TravelSafety Charter, and changes will be made to these measures as required by the global pandemic situation.However, we also expect there to be requirements, measures and sometimes itinerary changes that apply to certain trips only, and may well be temporary measures. We have highlighted all known changes in the section below. *Entry requirements*For all trips, having the correct documentation and visa, if required, remains the customer’s responsibility based on their own nationality.

Information on local restrictions will be updated in 2021, closer to the time when trips are operational again. *Itinerary changes*The only planned change is that we will replace a public bus in Split with a private transfer. As the arrival transfer is rather long, your leader will carry out a temperature check upon boarding the vehicle.However, customers should be prepared for occasional short notice changes as required by local authorities or recommended by the Exodus Leader to maintain COVID-security for the group.
lead by Alan Skulic all going along at our own speeds.Bikes were very good
with disc brakes.Suggest activity level 4 for the hill climbs on day 1 and 2
but we all got up them with nobody using the bus. Restaurants for lunch and
evening meals were hand picked and very good although the one in Korcula took
a long time to bring out the meals. Optional middle day, some went to Mjet
island and the three Musketeers cycled to the next town Korcula for pizza and
ice cream then back to the hotel pool and bar. We were spoilt by blue sky
days which always enhance any trip. Final day in Dubrovnik was great with a
walk around the city walls. Want to revisit Croatia and soon!”

Can you tell me more about the difficulty level and road conditions/types for this trip? What is the activity level and what level of fitness/experience with a bicycle should I have to go on this tour?
This tour is classified as activity level 3 (moderate). The tour involves 4 days of cycling (plus one optional day's ride) with an average distance of 45km per day with full vehicle support.
The rides mainly follow tarmac roads, but where possible on the islands we will use the quieter older roads that tend to be hard gravel. The roads are quiet and there is less traffic on the islands than the mainland. The route will be generally undulating but there are a few challenging hills that can be tough in the warm weather. The trip is vehicle supported so it is possible to miss some of these harder sections if you prefer. At times the route will follow roads or tracks with a steep downslope to one side. Certain sections will not have a barrier.
No specific cycling experience required but you should be comfortable on a bike and have a reasonable level of fitness.
We have categorised this trip as generally not suitable for persons of reduced mobility. However, if you are a regular traveller on such trips, please contact customer service to discuss this particular trip and your personal condition.
What will the climate be like in Croatia and what are the alternatives in case of bad weather?
Croatia boasts one of the sunniest climates in Europe, and some regions are well known to have very little rain. The trip runs from March through to October, so travellers should expect some variation in temperature and possibly some rainfall. Temperatures can be high, particularly in July, and can reach the mid to high 30s. Temperatures in March, April and October are typically cooler. There can be thunderstorms in the summer.
If it rains lightly, the group would still tend to cycle. If the weather becomes really bad then the tour leader would arrange to do something else other than cycling and transport the group in a mini bus. If you face any problem or struggles during cycling, you can jump in the support vehicle.
