By bike and boat from island to island in the Adriatic Sea: discover the differences
Sheltered by the mighty mountains of the Velebit in the east and the Istrian Peninsula in the northwest, the Kvarner Bay is situated. Enclosed by crystal clear water you can find lonely bays, green hills, rugged stone landscapes and small historical towns.
On a romantic motor yacht – your floating accomodation – discover the charm of the Adriatic in your own special way. You cycle off after a hearty breakfast. At midday meet the ship at a harbour for lunch. In the evening the ship will be waiting in the next harbour, so that you can enjoy fantastic cuisine as the sun sets, followed by a stroll through the historic harbour town. Finally, settle down in your cabin to sleep – or stay on deck under a thousand stars…
