Spring and Autum (Fall) are magnificent time on the Croatian’s coast for a cycling tour. Majority of the tourists have not arrived yet and there’s plenty to see and enjoy before the Summer season. On this tour you will cycle and see few islands in Zadar region, magical Krka river and have an opportunity to try out rock climbing in Paklenica national park. If rock climbing is not to your liking, you can opt to hike Plitvice national park instead. We provide trekking bicycles for the tour, but you are free to bring your own if you wish. If you are not sure about your fitness level, have no fear. Every day there will be a van tailing the group and picking up those who do not feel like cycling any more.

You’ll be staying in city of Biograd, and you can pick if you prefer luxurious or cheaper option; both 3 and 4 star hotels are available. Additionally, you can opt to have full board service, and Jamming Adventures will take responsibility in securing your lunch and dinner throughout your stay with us.

Day 1: Arrival

A representative from Jamming Adventures will pick you up at the Split airport. You can spend the afternoon exploring Biograd before meeting your guides and the rest of your group in the evening.

Day 2: Biograd background

Breakfast is served at the hotel and we start our first cycling tour at 10AM. First day is the easiest day and we only have 30km ahead of us. We’ll do a circle tour, starting and ending in Biograd. We’ll avoid cycling in main roads. We’ll stop for lunch along the way, but we’ll finish by 2PM. In the afternoon, those who are interested can join us in exploring city of Zadar.

Distance: 35 kilometers (21 miles)

Elevation gain: 169 meters (554 feet)

Day 3: Dugi otok

After the breakfast, we’ll take a ferry to island of Dugi otok. Dugi otok translates to Long island in English. And this is what our day will look like. It’s 40km of cycling that will last till 5PM with lunch break somewhere in the middle of the tour. Usually this distance can be covered in 2 hours, but we’ll take some time to explore this beautiful island with highest cliffs in the area. There are also some very nice beaches on the island, so if weather permits, we’ll do some swimming too. Dinner will be back in Biograd.

Distance: 40 kilometers (24 miles)

Elevation gain: 612 meters (2007 feet)

Day 4: Ugljan

Ugljan is located right in front of Biograd and as every day our tour will start after the breakfast. We will start the tour by taking a ferry to the tip of Ugljan, but we’ll finish it at the end of Pašman island. Yes, we lied. You will not see only Ugljan, but also Pašman island. This is a bit shorter tour, with 40km to cover. It’s quite flat route that can be done within an hour. However, with stops for lunch and exploring the nature, we won’t be finishing before 3PM. At the end of the tour, another ferry back to Biograd and you’ll be back to hotel in no time.

Distance: 40 kilometers (24 miles)

Elevation gain: 353 meters (1158 feet)

Day 5: Paklenica or Plitvice National Park

After three days of cycling, we’ll take a break and do a bit different things. Everybody can decide for themself; rock climbing school in Paklenica NP or a trip to Plitvice NP. Both locations are awesome to spend the whole day. Lunch time depends on the tour you take, and details will be sorted out day before the trip. In the evening we’ll have a joint dinner in one of Biograd’s restaurants.
6

Day 6: Murter

After the breakfast, we’ll take a ~60 minute drive to the island of Murter. This is Jamming Adventure’s HQ island and we’ll take an opportunity to show you around. We’ll cycle from town of Murter to town of Vodice. We’ll stop for lunch in Vodice and finish our tour by cycling to town of Jadrija. If we finish in time, we can take an opportunity to walk around town of Šibenik and have a dinner in this beautiful town. An hour ride back to Biograd for a good night sleep.

Distance: 35 kilometers (21 miles)

Elevation gain: 187 meters (613 feet)

7

Day 7:Krka National Park

Last day we left for Krka national park. It’s again an hour or so drive from Biograd to the park, but then we spend the day cycling in and out of the park. There’s plenty of routes in the park, and we’ll make sure to pick one that will suite the best for the group. And, if weather permits, we’ll do some swimming in the river (when safe and allowed), with a view on waterfalls. Lunch time depends on the exact route and will be in town of Skradin. We apologise upfront, but we will have to enforce responsible drinking once we get to a winery. Dinner will be either back in Biograd.

Distance: 36 kilometers (22 miles)

Elevation gain: 274 meters (898 feet)
