Newly built in winter 2015, the brand-new majestic vessel MS Aria made her maiden voyage in summer 2016. Equipped with a 675 horsepower engine, the Aria is able to reach speeds of up to 12 knots. Featuring both, sails and a powerful engine, the vessel is considered one of the most comfortable motorized sailing boats in Croatia.

Rijeka – Island of Krk – Island of Rab – Island of Pag – Island of Lošinj – Island of Cres – Rijeka
If you are coming by car you can drive into the port from 09:00 am. Our service team will then direct you to the garage and transfer you back to the port. Please note that embarkation time is from 11:00 am to 01:00 pm. Our bicycles will be waiting for you in front of the boat. After having chosen the right bike for you, our staff will proceed with loading the bicycles on board. There follows a meet & greet including a welcome drink with our representative, and you will have a chance to get to know the crew and your fellow passengers. While enjoying a snack, we weigh anchor and head towards Malinska, on the island of Krk. Here starts the first bicycle stage – from Malinska to Krk, the capital of the homonymous island. Dinner and overnight stay in Krk (22.5 km by bicycle).
After breakfast, we continue our bike tour across the island of Krk. First we will go to Dobrinj, in the central part of the island. We then continue to Vrbnik, an ancient town, perched on a cliff on the east coast of Krk. The vineyards of Vrbnik are famous for their golden-coloured Žlahtina wine. We will stop for lunch in a cosy tavern (not included in the cruise price), before continuing on to Baška, in the south of the island. The 3 km steep climb to the highest point of the day will be rewarded with a panoramic view over the Baščanska Draga, a fertile valley that stretches all the way to the coast. Dinner and overnight stay at the harbour of Baška (44.3 km).
Since the overnight stay in Baška may depend on the weather, in case of adverse wind conditions, the bicycle tour will end in Punat (36 km).
Today, the boat will take us to Lopar, located in the north of the island of Rab. Our bike tour leads us from Supetarska Draga to the town of Rab. Our boat will be already waiting for us in the picturesque scenery of the old town with its four unique bell towers. Lunch will be served aboard. After lunch we will go by bike for another tour, crossing the 1,400 hectare Kalifront forest park with its up to 1,000-year-old holm oaks. After a break in the "Bay of Love" we return to Rab. After a guided tour through the historic town, you will have the opportunity to visit a restaurant for dinner. Overnight stay in the port of Rab (19.0 resp. 22.2 km).
Only a good half hour by boat and we will reach Lun, located at the northern tip of the neighbouring island of Pag. The island stands out above all by its extremes – partly meagre, like a lunar landscape, partly covered with lush green mountain fields, where numerous sheep graze, “producing” the famous Pag cheese. First we ride to Novalja, the main town of the northern half of the island, where we will enjoy our onboard lunch. We then continue by bike to Mandre, where our boat will be waiting in the harbour. There you will have the opportunity to go out for dinner. Overnight stay in Mandre (33.7 km).
Today a somewhat longer boat journey lies ahead of us – it takes about four hours to get from Mandre to Mali Lošinj, on the island of Lošinj. Heading north, we anchor for lunch on board in a secluded bay. On arrival at the harbour of Mali Lošinj, we unload our bicycles to discover the unique countryside with its vast pine forests. We ride round the Čikat Bay, along the coast and through the Sunčana Uvala (the Sunny Bay) to the picturesque seaside town of Veli Lošinj, and all the way back. Tonight you can enjoy a nice dinner in one of the restaurants of Mali Lošinj. Overnight stay in Mali Lošinj (18.0 km).
The “2-Islands-Day”. After breakfast, we jump on our bikes and ride from Mali Lošinj to Osor, where the islands of Lošinj and Cres are connected by a swing bridge. We then continue our tour to the Bay of Martinšćica. We load the bikes on the boat and continue our voyage to Cres, the capital of the homonymous island. We will have lunch during our bike tour on the island of Cres (not included in the cruise price). Dinner on board and overnight stay at the port of Cres (44.8 km).
The final bike tour leads us from Cres 14 km north to a vantage point near the village of Predošćica and back. We will have lunch on board in Cres, and then load our bicycles for the last time. Leaving the harbour of Cres, we will sail to a bay in the north of the island, to take a long last swim in the blue Adriatic Sea, before returning to Rijeka. Overnight stay in the port of Rijeka (28.2 km).
After breakfast, disembarkation until 9:00 am.
Itinerary and activities are subject to slight changes due to weather and local conditions. Therefore it might occur that lunch is served on board instead of dinner and vice versa.

Port of Rijeka

Rijeka is the third largest city in Croatia and the largest and most important seaport of the country.
