Geotour offers a selection of six regular week-long routes, which take you through the nicest places in the Croatian Adriatic. What remains can be explored in our discovery routes. In BIKEBOAT (English version) 2018, two routes are available. >> to the tour schedule
Regular and discovery routes
While our regular routes have a firm itinerary and the route is given in advance, our discovery routes are flexible and do not have a firm itinerary.
How our sailing routes came to be
Since the launch of the BIKEBOAT (or its Czech version KOLOLOĎ) in 1999, we have developed our sailing routes systematically. Currently, we have five routes that perfectly complement each other. They enable you to explore the most interesting places and islands of the Adriatic – from Dubrovnik in south Dalmatia to Rab in the Kvarner archipelago. From year to year, our routes can be slightly altered and improved to offer you the best experience. In the future, we are planning to offer you a wider choice of the routes. >> to map of sailing routes
Unique yet with complete coverage
Our regular routes rarely overlap and only in places where it is necessary or those you should not miss (on the islands of Korčula and Brač and, partially, on the Pelješac peninsula). In other words, our routes cover everything that is interesting, worth seeing and cycling through in the Croatian Adriatic.

What happens during the night?
Overnight, the boat is securely docked or – rarely – anchored in a calm, protected bay. The boat sets sail before breakfast, typically between 7 and 8 AM. If the journey is scheduled to take longer, the ship leaves the port very early in the morning. If you want a change from sleeping in your cabin, you can try sleeping – in your own sleeping bag – on the upper deck under the stars.
The sea can have a mind of its own
The Adriatic sea is one of the calmest, where high waves are a rare sight. The tides are small. We usually sail between islands or islands and the coastline, so the islands protect the ship from high waves even if the open sea is rough. However, this protection is not always there so we may have to change our course or stay in port longer than planned as sailing a rough sea is uncomfortable and sometimes even dangerous.
The crew and the boat are tough and can withstand large waves, but you, the passengers would get sick, the chef would not be able to cook and objects could shift and possibly cause damage and injuries. Once in a couple of weeks, we can find ourselves in a slightly wavy sea and therefore, if you are prone to motion sickness, we recommend the use of appropriate medication. The decision on whether or not it is safe to go out to sea is the captain’s responsibility and decision to make.
