Croatia Tour 2019

Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia, Italy
14 days

(Wednesday 17th July 2019 to Tuesday 30th July 2019) 

If you have ever wondered about visiting Croatia, truly one of the most beautiful countries in Europe, and doing so by motorcycle, you are in luck.  We are touring Croatia in July 2019, and you are invited.

Croatia, situated on the Adriatic Sea, is a country of dramatic mountainous landscapes and deep-blue seascapes.  Its inland forests and rivers are breathtakingly beautiful.  The charm and romance of the old cities, the interesting villages in the outlying areas, coupled with excellent and varied food and wine, from the hearty stews and meat dishes of the inland regions, to the seafood and Italian influenced cuisines along the coast, make this a destination well worth visiting.  And there is no better way to experience the beauty of Croatia and the surrounding areas than on a motorcycle!

The 2019 tour will take us from Germany through Austria, Slovenia, and into Croatia, where we will spend most of our time.  Our tour then takes us to Venice, before riding through the Italian Dolomites and heading back to Munich in Germany.

We start in Munich on Wednesday 17th July and end on Tuesday 30th July, 2019, when we hand our rented motorcycles back.  The accommodation on the night of the 30th in Munich is included in the tour price.

Tour Itinerary

Day 1Day 2Day 3Day 4Day 5Day 6Day 7Day 8Day 9Day 10Day 11Day 12Day 13Day 14

Day 1 (Munich, Germany)

Arrival in Munich the day before the riding begins allows a good rest so you will be fresh for your departure tomorrow. Make your way to the hotel and check in. Have some sleep, freshen up and later in the afternoon meet all the participants in the hotel for a beer and a chat. Enjoy dinner in a local beer garden.

Day-1Day 2 (Mayrhofen, Austria)

We meet at the bike rental station where we pack our bikes, have a briefing and then hit the road.  It is short distance today to allow you to familiarise yourself with riding on the right-hand side of the road. We head out to Mayrhofen a picturesque village in Austria, where we spend our first night.

It is not a long or technical ride to get there, so you will have time to get accustomed to riding on the right hand side of the road. This is close to the Grossglockner, which is the highest Alpine Peak in Austria. Take a walk into the village and enjoy a beer in the hotel beer garden. We will have dinner in the hotel and enjoy the Austrian Hospitality

EU_BIKE_TOURSDay 3 (Bled, Slovenia)

After breakfast at the hotel, on day two, we ride over the Grossglockner, taking in the beautiful sights and enjoying the long sweeps and tight corners. The Grossglockner is, at 3 798 metres above the Adriatic, the highest mountain of Austria and the highest mountain in the Alps east of the Brenner Pass. You will most certainly enjoy riding the 48 kilometre “High Alpine Road” with its 36 bends and an altitude ascent to 2,504 metres.

Our destination for the day is Bled in Slovenia, and we will be riding via Spittal an der Drau, located on the Southern slopes of the Gurktal Alps.

When we get to Bled, we will check into our hotel and freshen up. Enjoy a stroll around the lake and take in the view of Bled Castle and maybe try some famous Bled Cream Cake. We will enjoy dinner at the hotel.

EU_BIKE_TOURSDay 4 (Plitvice Lakes, Croatia)

On the third day of our tour, we leave Bled in Slovenia and cross the border into Croatia, where we will be in the Plitvice Lakes National Park in Jezerce. Plitvice Lakes National Park is the oldest national park in Southeast Europe and the largest national park in Croatia.

Our ride is about 260 km for the day, and we will stop for a light lunch along the way somewhere – exactly where will be decided on the day. Once we get to the hotel we can freshen up and relax, as we will be having dinner in the hotel, and there is no rush to get anywhere.

Day-4-Tues-23-June-–-Destination-Sarajevo-Bosnia–-aDay 5 (Sarajevo, Bosnia)

Today we ride from Plitvice Lakes to Sarajevo in Bosnia! We will need to get going early, as we have a long ride. In the 1990s Sarajevo was on the edge of annihilation due to the war in the region, and today it’s a vibrant city, notable for its attractive contours and East-meets-West ambience.

The ride goes through many small Bosnian village and cities and you will notice evidence of the civil war. We’ll be staying in a hotel in the old town and dinner will be served at the hotel. There will be enough time to go and explore the Old City, and a walking tour is the best way to do this.

EU_BIKE_TOURSDay 6 (Dubrovnik (Mlini), Croatia)

We ride from Sarajevo to Dubrovnik in Croatia. Our route takes us along one of the most scenic winding forest roads, and then over a mountain and into Dubrovnik. We are staying in a small village 12 km from Dubrovnik Old town.

When we get there, you will have time to chill out and plan what you will be doing on day six, as we will have a rest day in Dubrovnik on the next day.

EU_BIKE_TOURSDay 7 (Rest Day in Dubrovnik (Mlini))

You might want to visit the old city in Dubrovnik, or if resting and chilling out is not your thing, then join an outride, which will take you across the border from Croatia into Montenegro, and enjoy lunch at a beach restaurant in Herceg Novi.

Day 8 (Split, Croatia)

Takes us along the Dalmatian coast from Dubrovnik to 


Split. When we get to Split, after checking in to the hotel and freshening up, we will walk from the hotel, into the old city. Our walk will take us via the marina, and lovely outdoor eateries and bars.

We’ll enjoy a sun downer before we go back to our hotel for dinner. Obviously, the visit to the old city is totally up to you, if you want to do something else, it’s your call.

EU_BIKE_TOURSDay 9 (Starigrad-Paklenica, Croatia)

Is a short riding day, from Split to Starigrad – Paklenica in Croatia. We will head North along the coast, and probably stop for refreshments at a beach bar along the way.

We should be in Starigrad early enough for you to have a swim in the flat waters of the Adriatic Sea after checking into the hotel. Dinner will be served overlooking the ocean at the hotel (weather dependant)

Day 10 (Postojna , Slovenia)

Today we ride further North along the coast, before heading inland along some small narrow farm roads and across the border from Croatia to Slovenia, where we will make our way to the village of Postojna.

EU_BIKE_TOURSDay 11 (Treviso-Venice, Italy)

It is a short ride to Treviso (Venice) so we will arrange a visit to the Postojna Caves after breakfast.

Postojna Cave is a 24,340 m long karst cave system and is the second-longest cave system in the country as well as one of its top tourism sites. After our visit to the caves we will mount our trusty machines and head to Treviso, which is 25 kilometres outside of Venice. No rush to get from Treviso into Venice, because we will have a rest day on day twelve, when we will take the train into Venice.

Day 12 (Treviso-Venice, Italy)

After a 20 minute train ride, we arrive on Grand Canal, and you are in the he

art of Venice. Spoil yourselves and take in all that Venice has to offer.










EU_BIKE_TOURSDay 13 (Pocol, Italy)

After our rest day and our visit to Venice, we head into the Dolomites. Be ready for some seriously twisty roads and awesome scenery. We will be staying just outside of Cortina in a small village 

called Pocol. After the day’s ride, we will need a relaxing evening at the hotel.

Dinner will be in the hotel tonight, and we’ll have time to swap riding stories for the day, and enjoy the awesome view of the mountains from the hotel.

EU_BIKE_TOURSDay 14 (Munich, Germany)

All good things come to an end and unfortunately, we need to leave Pocol and head back to Munich. We will ride a fantastic section of the Dolomites, before we finally get onto the Autobahn and make our way into Munich. After we hand our bikes back, we will check into our hotel and freshen up. It’s a short walk from the hotel to the BMW Museum and BMW Welt. If you haven’t seen these attractions, they are both certainly worth a visit. Afterwards, we will go to one of the Bavarian beer gardens and enjoy a Weissbier or two and Sauerkraut!

Tonight, we stay in Munich and the tour has come to an end. For those that are returning home immediately after the tour, we bid you farewell the next morning.
