Croatia has become one of the world’s ‘must see’ destinations over recent years – especially by bike with Kiwi Style Bike Tours, with tours selling out in record time.  We’ve picked the best mix of locations to give you a great insight into all that Croatia has to offer – it’s got more gems than just it’s famous islands.



31 May 2025 - 13 Jun 2025

Croatia has an incredible range of stunning scenery on offer, from the romantic countryside of Istria Peninsula, to the charming fishing villages of the northern Dalmatia coastline and the beautiful beaches of the southern Dalmatia islands.

Day 1 – 4:

We start the Croatia Tour with a pick up from Zagreb Airport and transfer to the northern part of the Istria Peninsula. We will spend the first four days of this tour enjoying riding through the beautiful countryside of Istria.  This is the heart of Croatia’s famous vineyard, olive and truffle area.  It is the perfect place to get the legs moving on the mixture of rolling and pinch climbs before tackling one of the longer (17km) climbs of the area.  The rustic villages and the fortified towns provide a magical backdrop to our introduction rides.  During the four nights here we will also have our first taste of island riding, spending a day on Cres Island.

Day 5 – 7:

From Istria we begin the transfer stage of our tour, enjoying the coastal rides and stunning views as we head south, spending a night at a charming fishing village town along the route towards Split.  The views we enjoy along these transfer rides are breath taking, as we combine a mixture of coastal roads and climbs to get the best views on offer.


The next couple of nights are spent near Split, which will offer a well deserved light ride/rest day and an opportunity to go exploring one of Croatia’s most famous towns on foot.

Day 8 – 9:

Our Day 8 ride starts with a ferry transfer to the beautiful island of Brac. This island is a cyclists paradise – a beautiful coast road to warm up, a steady but challenging climb and a long flowing descent.  This ride will have you smiling from ear to ear.  We finish the day with a ferry transfer back to the mainland and our next setting for the next two nights. This location will ensure that the ear to ear smiles will continue well after the cycling has finished.

Perhaps the most famous road in Croatia is also the highest paved road in the country, finishing atop the Sveti Jure climb in the Biokovo National Park. This ride climbs from our hotel at sea level to 1762m within 31km, so is a massive challenge in anyone’s book.  The road is not for the faint hearted, but the views are simply stunning and the achievement is an unforgettable tick on the bucket list. This is the third highest peak in Croatia.  The new ‘Sky Walk’ glass semi-circle platform, jutting out over Makarska town below is a stunning little stop along the way.


Day 10 – 12:

The last of our riding destination is the gem of the southern Dalmatia Islands – Hvar.  We start with a ferry transfer, then ride the spectacular roads to our hotel that sits in the heart of the most incredible ‘old town’ you can imagine.  We will spend the next three nights here, riding more of the back road loops that Hvar has on offer, as well as a day ride to another Croatian island paradise –  Korčula Island.


Day 13 – 14:

As much as we won’t want to leave this special part of the world, we must transfer to our hotel for the final night of the Croatia Tour, which is spent near Dubrovnik.  This is a town that needs no introduction, with the walls of the old town welcoming a growing number of visitors every year.  No – we won’t be riding our bikes in the old town, but the opportunity is there to see what all the fuss is about.  Our final day is a drop off at Dubrovnik to sadly call the end of this awesome Croatia Tour.
