Overview

Explore the Dalmatian countryside and get some exercise in a fun way with this 4.5-hour guided tour by bicycle. Head to the village of Gruda, 20 miles (33 km) south of Dubrovnik to pick up your bike. Then ride on, taking in the incredible panoramic views of the Adriatic Sea and the Dubrovnik Riviera. With your guide riding alongside, pedal past olive groves and vineyards, waterfalls and villages, all while learning about the history of the area. The tour concludes with a sampling of wine at a local winery. This tour is limited to eight cyclists, which means you’ll get a lot of personalized attention.
  • 4.5-hour bike tour around the Dubrovnik countryside with a visit to an award-winning winery
  • Enjoy panoramic vistas on the journey to the village of Gruda
  • Cycle through charming Croatian villages with a guide, and pass olive groves and waterfalls
  • Hear stories of local history and make the most of several photo stops
  • Visit an award-winning winery, and sample some of the fine wine on offer
  • Small-group tour with a maximum of eight people ensures personalized attention
Meet your guide at the Old Town, or Stari Grad, in Dubrovnik and then hop in a comfortable mini-van for the 30-minute ride south to the village of Gruda. Enjoy the trip, taking in the eye-popping views of the shimmering Adriatic Sea and the Dubrovnik Riviera, while passing through small, sleepy seaside villages. Pause at a lookout point for a great photo opportunity. 
Once in Gruda, listen to a safety briefing from your guide and receive a helmet and other safety equipment. Then hop on your bike and start pedaling. 
Follow your guide, as you pass through ancient villages and a bucolic countryside of olive groves and citrus orchards, waterfalls and vineyards. 
Stop frequently to take photos and to listen to your guide regale you with stories of the local history and culture. The route goes by 17th-century windmills and 15th-century monasteries. See evidence of the Croatian War for Independence in buildings still pockmarked by bullet holes or partially ruined by bombs. 
After riding for a while, take a much-deserved break for a swim in a mountain stream, and then relax and eat a sandwich. 
For the final stop of the tour, take another break at a local winery to sample some award-winning southern Dalmatian wine. Learn about the characteristics of wine in the area as you sip a glass or two. And then travel back to Dubrovnik via comfortable minivan.

Mio our guide was so passionate about his country's culture and history and shared so many interesting facts with us! The lunch was a very hearty, homey local sandwich which was very filling. The transport was very comfortable and the scenery on this tour is just amazing...from the first stop to see Dubrovnik from above, to the ruins of a hotel complex from Croatia's history, to the beautiful valleys and vineyards of Konavle valley... amazing!!! The ride was long for me and I was so tired but it was so worth it!

Met on time by Dario who was brilliant. Only the four of us on the trip so felt personal to us. He showed us a couple of things along the way including an abandoned hotel complex which is very strange but you could imagine how it would have looked in the day. He then took us to collect the bikes. Water is provided throughout. We explored some of the countryside and had lunch again provided in the shade by a monastery. He was very knowledgeable and pointed out lots of things along the way including pulling figs from a tree for us to eat much sweeter than the ones back home. Towards the end you do go off road back towards the Winery. It is not a flat cycle ride but if you are reasonably fit then you should have no problems at all. Sampled 4 wines when we got back and it was all very nice. Did buy a couple of bottles to bring home too!!

Our trip with Dario was one of our favorite parts of our whole vacation! The views during our drive out to the country were breath taking and we even stopped to look at an abandon hotel with a rich history. Afterwords we started the biking which lasted around 2 hours with sporadic breaks and lunch outside a monastery. We had tons of fun with Dario talking about the different aspects of Croatia and Dubrovnik. There was a small mix up with the winery but this turned out to be to our advantage since we got to sample wine at a private residence looking out onto the Adriatic Sea. Overall the experience was wonderful and we would call it an essential excursion if you come to Dubrovnik.

We had a fantastic day on the bike tour. the scenery was beautiful, the cycling not too difficult no big hills
Lovely picnic lunch and the guides were great, very friendly and knowlegeable.
Oh and the wine was delicious as well! We bought a few bottles home with us.
If you get a chance to do this tour, do it. You won't regret it !!

The tour was a nice change from regular tours. It started off on wrong foot as Viator's directions for meeting point were outdated but with a little guidance, we found place. Carlo our guide was apologetic. He was very flexible in his schedule and showed us stops that were not originally part of tour. That speaks highly of his character. Lunch was good and filling but maybe should have more of a selection. The wine tasting at end was very good as well. Would recommend to anyone. It should be noted on website that pickups can be done from cruiseship port. Paul from Canada.

A great day out away from the hustle and bustle of Dubrovnik. It was a good chance to get out to the countryside for a few miles of cycling with a picnic stop at a secluded lake, a really enjoyable experience and Karlo was a fab tour guide!

It seemed as though the tour organizers were attempting to make up a tour out of very little. It was ok up to the little authentic restaurant 10 minutes? where I thought we should have had an opportunity to sample the traditional method of cooking food in the unique creekside restaurant. Instead we moved on to the a location where the impact of the war was evident. That was an interesting discussion. From that point on we were off onto a very rocky, bumpy, unpleasant, no scenery dry, dusty 'field' This was after one our group members unfortunately fell and injured herself. Then we took our runners off to maneuver ourselves and bikes across a shallow creek. No mention of that in the itinerary. So bare feet on a creek bed with a bike in tow is not great. We lunched on a loaf of bread with a little bit of filling inside. We then were offered dental floss to clean our teeth the guide proceed to floss his couldn't believe it. Continuing on through more rocky, dusty path through a dry field towards a 'winery'. It was not worth spending a precious day on shore in Dubrovnik to do this tour. Stay away until they figure out a much better itinerary.

Really nice even though the wine tasting can be greatly improved. The wine presenter did not tell much about the wines nor the winery itself. the cykling is great, beautifully set in Konavle valley, and the guide Carlo was fantastic.
