Villages & Views Bike on Hvar Island

Hvar island is perhaps the most well known of the Croatian islands. The island itself is beautiful with stunning vistas, charming villages, vineyards & lavender fields.

The back story of Hvar is what we find the most intriguing about the island – hidden coves on the coast, tiny stone villages, St. Nikola’s peak, the rocky lavender fields and the people, who even today have kept their way of life in the fishing villages and hamlets.

On your bike tour, you’ll explore Hvar’s stunning beauty lead by native Hvar guide – a great way to connect with this verdant island.  Explore old villages, lavender fields, ancient Stari Grad plain and local  lifestyle.

From Stari Grad, you’ll head towards the old villages of Dol, Vrbanj, Svirče, Vrisnik, Jelsa and through ancient Greek plain back to Stari Grad.
