Treasure Islands

Croatia Mountain Bike Adventure

Join us on a private motor yacht for a week of island bliss as we mountain bike around Croatia’s Southern Dalmatia islands, one of Europe’s most beautiful destinations. Sip a beer post ride at a rustic cafe, stroll narrow streets of historic harbor towns, a private dinner at a small restaurant or enjoy meals on the boat prepared by our onboard chef. Join our local Croatian guides on this unforgettable adventure as they show you the trails that weave and connect the villages on each island - experience the best single track found on each island. Learn about the deep history of the region with our knowledgeable local guides, anchor in a quiet cove for a swim off the deck, then sail off to the next island to do it all over again.

Our entirely oak ship stands at 101-feet long. All 12 spacious cabins (11 above deck over 2 floors, 1 below deck) feature air conditioning, private bathrooms with shower and hair dryer. Each day will feature two guided ride distances. Riders can expect lots of singletrack, some doubletrack and some quiet ashphalt climbs. Also, high-performance e-bike rentals available.

New co-ed trip launched! And, on our Women's departure enjoy pre-trip training assistance & on-trip coaching by the renowned Sweet Skills coaching program.
