On the E-bike & Bicycle cruise South Dalmatia Plus we will show you the beauty of the South Dalmatian coastline and island world in company of a First Class ship, the majestic Princeza Diana and the Melody.

Highlights of the tour such as the Diocletian Palace in Split, the picturesque old town of Korcula and the lavender island of Hvar along with many other scenic islands make this journey an unforgettable experience. Culture does not fall by the wayside. This tour is in many ways similar to our regular South Dalmatia tour, making the Plus Tour a great alternative should your dream tour date in South Dalmatia already be booked out. Depending on wind and weather we reserve the right to run this tour in reverse.

Frequently asked questions

  • What biking level is the Southern Dalmatia tour?

    The cycle tours require a basic level of fitness from participants, which they should have acquired from steady cycling. The tours will take us up to a height of 200 to 500 m above sea-level. The day-tours from 12 to 31 mi. (20 to 50 km) will take us through hilly and mountainous terrain and will be completed without any time-constraints. Participants will also need to master long and steep climbs, during which they are, however, also permitted to push their bicycles.  You are free to set aside a half or full day to swim or to spend time on board the boat, instead of taking a planned cycle tour.

  • Can you choose your own itinerary without a guide?

    Cyclists can choose a longer route than the group takes. The guide will gladly advise you on the choice of an alternative route.

  • What insurances does Cycletours offer?

    Cancellation insurance (insurance company Unigarant)
    Holidays usually are reserved and paid weeks or even months in advance. If you need to cancel or abort the tour, that always leaves you with financial consequences. Therefore we recommend to arrange a cancellation insurance. This insurance reimburse cancellation costs due to a serious impediment such as an accident, illness or death of relatives in the 1st or 2nd degree.
    Cancellation insurance including  air flight:
    when paying 1% extra over the travel sum of your Bike & Barge tour + flight ticket, then the cancellation expense is insured should you need to cancel or should one of these components unexpectedly be cancelled. This on the condition that no alternative arrangement can be made, so the trip cannot be taken.

  • What is the average age of the participants?

    The ages vary between 35 and 75, but of course we have younger and older guests. During school vacations there are more children on board.

  • What packing list do you suggest?

    What you need to bring with you on the Bike & Barge tours starting and/or ending in the Netherlands and along the Mosel & Saar:

    Specialised cycle clothing may be handy but not strictly necessary. What you do need (among other things) is the following:
    •    shorts/ long trousers/ track suit/ legging
    •    shirts/ sweater/ rain clothing
    •    gloves (in case you booked a tour in April and October. It can be chilly in the morning)
    •    good solid shoes/ sneakers
    •    sunglasses/ cap/ swimming costume
    •    shower gel (available on the barge Sailing Home)
    •    shampoo (available on the barge Sailing Home)
    •    insect repellent
    •    sunscreen

    The final packing list we suggest for your tour will be included in your travel documents.
