Mediterranean cycle holiday with that extra something

Luxurious multi-day cycle holidays in Croatia. Cycle like a professional, stay on a motor yacht or villa with pool, explore Croatia, eat and drink at carefully selected Mediterranean, family run taverns and restaurants. Experience Croatia and have a proper cycling holiday. Your way.

1 – Choose your tour

Chose between two tours; Istrian Magic  discovering magnificent mainland of Istrian peninsula, or  Islands of Dalmatia, taking you by yacht to stunning Croatian islands.

2 – Select a week

You can’t really go wrong here. Any week you chose will be filled with nice people, knowledgeable guides, good food, exceptional wine and quality roads. Active holiday has never been more attractive.

3 – Book your tour!

That’s it. You’ve secured yourself a space (and a double en-suite room/cabin) at one of the best proper cycling tours in Mediterranean. Be fast though, 20 is a maximum number of cyclists per tour.

Book a villa just for you

If you’re travelling in a group of 3* or more, we’re happy to book a whole villa just for you and your group.

*For Istrian Magic tours only: three guests or more, based on single occupancy (supplement) rate. Villas accommodate between 6 and 8 people.

We believe active holidays should not sacrifice comfort, hurt your budget or the experience. That’s why we decided to pack all three and offer a fully guided cycle holiday with that extra something; whether it is a luxury villa, a yacht, scenic winding roads, undiscovered forest trails, access to best local food and wine or something else – it’s up to you to decide. We’ll sort everything, you just enjoy, pedal and discover.

After a deserved break, we continue cycling to our destination. Breaks and snacks along the way are welcomed if required. By 4:30 pm we should have everyone reach the destination.

19-23

We’re taking a trip with a van to a well deserved dinner in a family owned taverns/restaurants for some authentic Istrian gastronomic magic. We promise to take you back so you can have a good rest for tomorrow’s ride.

Bicycles

Bring your bike or get one from us.
Free of charge.

For those of you that are not planning to bring a bike with you, we have an exclusive range of Giant road  bicycles included in price. Carefully selected to match requirements and specifications of the tour, you can hire free of charge the very best of Giant road range. Models come in different sizes (S, M, and L) and are equipped with a cycle computer. A safety helmet is included.

Giant Defy 1

With a slightly longer head tube and longer wheelbase than Giant’s full race TCR bikes, the Giant Defy 1 falls very much into the ‘endurance’ or ‘comfort’ road bike category, perfect for sportive riding. Sure the Giant Defy 1 is as fast as any similarly priced road bike out there but, for most people, it’s more comfortable than a pure race geometry road bike.

Not only do Giant uniquely make their own Aluxx frames from the smelting process to the paint shop, they also make their own forks. The Giant Defy 1 has carbon composite for light weight and pinpoint steering accuracy, matched with their Overdrive aluminium steerer which is tapered to further firm up the front end. This tapered steerer design is a great antidote to brake judder that can afflict less robustly built bikes.

We are a dedicated team committed

Our Team

A fine selection of exceptional talents

Guide-Ivan

Ivan

Group Leader & MD

Please meet Ivan. Hi Ivan!  Born in Croatia, he spent a good part of his life being surrounded by tourists and bicycles. After cycling most of Asia and Europe, we decided he’s good enough cyclist and tour leader to show you the beauty lying in front of his doorstep – Mediterranean Croatia. Fluent in English, understands German, he and his cycling-devoted team will make sure things work perfectly during your stay.

Guide-Marko

Marko

Group Leader & Location Manager

We think there’s mud flowing through Marko’s veins. He’s a natural Adriactiver, feeling most at home when there’s a bike in his sight. Preferably with off-road tires and suspensions. Born in Istria, local off-road trails are Marko’s playground. Fluent in English, Italian and German, he claims to be an expert on Istrian wine and cheese. He rides and fixes bikes pretty well, too.

Nina Zrinski

Nina

Destination Coordinator & Bike Princess

Our newest team member, Nina is our marketing and sales guru with an outrageous love for Croatia and the outdoors. She possess extraordinary ability to multitask; for example eating olives while finalising an email proposal during a phone conversation on new tour specifications. Anyhow, without Nina, Adriactive would be an uninspiring and pretty disorganised place to deliver the finest treats to you. A degree in tourism management makes Nina pretty smart as well.

Custom-guide

You

Group Leader

Being in the saddle most of the day, having fine food and discovering Mediterranean sounds like well spent time? Do you feel more comfortable on a bicycle than on foot? Do you fell like home when being surrounded by people? Do you speak several languages? If you answered yes to most of the above, you just might be a good candidate to join us at Adriactive Croatia. Why don’t you send us an email introducing yourself?
