Croatia is a country in Southeast Europe. It borders Slovenia to the northwest, Hungary to the northeast, Serbia to the east, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Montenegro to the southeast, sharing a maritime border with Italy. Its capital, Zagreb, forms one of the country’s primary subdivisions, along with twenty counties. Croatia has an area of 56,594 square kilometers (21,851 square miles) and a population of 4.07 million, most of whom are Catholics.
Croatia is classified by the World Bank as a high-income country and ranked 46th on the Human Development Index. The economy is dominated by service, industrial sectors and agriculture. Tourism is a significant source of revenue, with Croatia ranked among the top 20 most popular tourist destinations in the world. The state controls a part of the economy, with substantial government expenditure. The European Union is Croatia’s most important trading partner. Croatia provides social security, universal health care system, and a tuition-free primary and secondary education, while supporting culture through numerous public institutions and corporate investments in media and publishing.
Croatia is an immensely varied destination, with picture-perfect coastline and wonderful inland trails through spectacular national parks and open countryside. And our Croatia cycling holidays now feature several fantastic itineraries. Our original tour, Cycling the Dalmatian Coast has become a classic and mixes a great road trip with a fabulous beach holiday. The itinerary ends in Dubrovnik, familiar to many for its red tiled roofs that contrast with the deep blue of the sea.
Due to the country’s ideal terrain, we have introduced an off-road trip that takes in the unique karst scenery of the Plitvice Lakes and Velebit National Park. With lots of wide tracks and breathtaking scenery, it is a mountain biker’s dream! And new to the mix is a challenging road itinerary that is designed to take advantage of the Istrian countryside; long undulating roads will make for six challenging days of riding but the rewards will be plenty.
If you don’t fancy a group itinerary, there are also self-guided options, leaving you to discover your own treasures in this traveller’s wonderland. So now all you need to do is work out which of our Croatia cycling tours is for you!
