If you don’t feel like cycling, stay aboard the ship!
Bright sunshine, deep blue water and excellent food - that is what you can expect at Croatia's Mediterranean coast. There are a lot of green islands in the Kvarner Bay: Rab, Krk, Cres and more, each with its own character. Let's grab your mountain bike to adventure, overcome obstacles and to test your limits. Over hill and dale, on natural paths and trails. With the azure sea as your constant companion, you will go uphill and downhill along winding trails. This MTB tour in the Kvarner Bay is available in 2 difficult levels, which can be chosen daily: easy-medium or medium-difficult. The pace is determined by the MTB riders; those who want to ride an E-MTB are asked to be considerate. There is also the option to stay on board of the comfortable motor sailing boat MS Linda.
