Thanks to the developed cycle tourism, there is a growing demand for accommodation for cyclists. Accommodation for cyclists, in most cases, offers additional storage or a garage where you can safely store your bike.
Of course, to be sure of your bicycle accommodation, it is always wiser to agree with your accommodation owner on how to store it so that the bicycle is not in the apartment itself. Below we bring you a proposal of accommodation that is adequate for cyclists:
Excursion recommendation for all cycling lovers
Wherever you go on the island of Krk, we are sure that you will enjoy the beauty, fresh air, good food and excellent tourist offer throughout the year. We also suggest an experience from our offer that allows guests and visitors to take their bikes and indulge in an organized excursion.
We recommend this experience in slightly warmer weather such as late spring and summer. You will visit 4 different islands; Krk, Rab, Goli otok and Grgur, with swimming on fairytale beaches and hidden coves. A tour of Goli Otok and Lopar, which have their own cycling routes and trails, will satisfy all your adrenaline appetites.
Also, for groups of cyclists, we can always create different excursions. One of the proposals is to go by boat, for example, from Krk to Stara Baška, and then by bike from Stara Baška to Baška, where a boat comes to pick up the group. Enjoying a bike ride, a magical panorama and swimming for refreshment is the perfect way to spend a day on Krk. Through our agency, it is possible to organize such a bike trip. We organize the trip with different boats depending on the number of people in the group, for about 15 cyclists and for larger groups of 40 - 50 cyclists.
Another interesting trip for groups of cyclists from our offer is by boat from Krk to Lopar on the island of Rab. On Rab and Lopar, cycling groups can enjoy very interesting bike trails. You can also take your bike and go by ferry to the neighbor islands, Cres or Rab.
The combination of cycling to various interesting tastings or cycling to the attractions of the island of Krk, such as the famous Biserujka cave is very attractive, too.
Just express your wishes to us, and we will make sure that your cycling adventure on our "Golden Island" becomes the best memory from your vacation.
