Embark on an extraordinary journey with our Istria and Parenzana Bike Tour, a unique exploration of the Northern Adriatic’s stunning coastline. This adventure begins in Italy, meanders through Slovenia, and culminates in the beautiful landscapes of Croatia.

Imagine the thrill of cycling along sun-drenched coastal paths, the wind in your hair, and the sun on your skin. Each pedal stroke brings you closer to charming seaside towns, each with its own unique character and rich cultural history.

The beauty of this tour is that it’s not confined to a particular season. The Mediterranean climate is welcoming almost all year round. The milder temperatures of spring and autumn offer comfortable cycling conditions and a chance to avoid crowds. For those who thrive in the summer heat, the azure waters of the Adriatic Sea provide a refreshing respite.

Our journey follows the historic Parenzana cycling route, a former railway line stretching from Trieste to Poreč. This route offers a diverse cycling experience, from well-kept paths and gravel tracks to quiet country roads.

One of the tour’s highlights is undoubtedly Rovinj, a coastal town that exudes romance. Its cobblestone streets and lively marina are a joy to explore. The journey concludes in Pula, Istria’s cultural hub, where an extra day allows for a deeper exploration of the city’s fascinating surroundings.

This bike tour is designed to offer a balance of structure and freedom. We provide a detailed itinerary and directions, but the journey is yours to shape. Our support team is always on hand to ensure a seamless experience.

Whether you prefer an electric or a standard bike, we cater to all fitness levels. So, there’s no reason to hesitate. Dive into the magic of Istria, create unforgettable memories, and start an adventure that will leave a lasting impression. The time to start is now!

Things to know

Private guided

A private tour offers the freedom and flexibility to tailor your itinerary according to your preferences and requirements. With a dedicated driver guide and exclusive transfers, everything is customized solely for you. This grants you greater control over your time, schedule, and overall experience, without the need to conform to a larger group. Whether you are traveling solo or with loved ones, opting for a guided private tour provides opportunities for additional stops, spontaneous additions, and on-the-go changes, as long as they align with the carefully prepared and organized itinerary. This ensures that you can enjoy a worry-free vacation.

In a small group

When we say “small,” we truly mean it. Our tour groups are limited to 4-8 individuals, ensuring an intimate and immersive experience of Croatia, free from the inconveniences of large busloads. This setup is perfect for solo travelers, couples, and small groups of friends and family eager to share their journey with like-minded individuals. Our boutique tour requires a minimum of 4 participants to operate, and it includes a dedicated tour leader, meticulously arranged accommodations and activities, as well as comfortable transportation. If your group exceeds this size, please reach out to us, and we will be happy to arrange a different option for you.

Self-guided

For those seeking flexibility and independence, we offer tours tailored to your preferences while leaving the adventure of transportation in your hands. You will receive a comprehensive fly & drive itinerary that includes activities, accommodations, and travel tips, supported by our team in case of emergencies or any concerns you may have. As you explore Slovenia, you have the freedom to navigate on your own terms. If desired, we can assist in arranging a car rental or even a campervan for your convenience.
