Croatia is a popular destination for active holidays. Due to the hilly topography, the many Adriatic islands and the sunny peninsula of Istria with its dreamy fishing villages and beautiful beaches are particularly suitable for cycling tours. The crystal-clear Adriatic Sea naturally invites you to take a refreshing swim during or after your bike tour.
Cycling holidays in Istria
The cycling tours lead along the coast and into the hinterland on low-traffic side roads, which with their karstic hills, fragrant vineyards and lonely valleys are reminiscent of Provence and Tuscany. Cycling is also a great way to explore cultural sights such as the Euphrasius Basilica in picturesque Porec and the countless small towns with their narrow streets. The pretty coastal town of Rovinj delights with its harbour, fishing boats and narrow streets. Here you will find the Euphemia Church with its towering bell tower. And at the southern tip of the peninsula, in Pula, there is the amphitheatre in the centre of the town, a relic from Roman times.
