- Cycle through three very different countries
- Visit the stunning city of Venice
- Follow the idyllic Istrian Peninsula
Following the northernmost tip of the Mediterranean, this unique ride takes you through stunning countryside, and encompasses three countries - all in one week!
Starting in a city that needs little introduction, the beautiful and inspiring streets of Venice set the scene for the journey to come. From here the route heads eastwards, hugging the Adriatic coast, allowing the perfect opportunity to indulge in some of the long stretches of tempting golden beaches.
Heading into the region of Friuli, you will pass sleepy fishing communes and the fascinating star-shaped city of Palmanova before turning south, drawn by the lure of the Istrian coast.
Crossing the borders of Italy, Slovenia and Croatia, it is hard to find a more fascinating concentration of rich culture anywhere else along the Adriatic.
Arriving into your destination of Porec, this historic town offers the perfect resting point for a truly memorable week.
What makes this trip responsible?
As a self-guided trip you will be pedalling under your own steam and at your own pace. You will not be part of a group so the impact of your visit on the landscape and communities you pass will be absolutely minimal. Our local operator works with local suppliers and hoteliers to ensure that we support the communities we visit, maximising the benefit to them and also our enjoyment of the region. We will stay in characterful, locally run hotels and the route notes will often give you hints and tips of local restaurants you can try, giving you a taste of the local cuisine while helping to support these establishments. Moreover, we encourage you to journey by train to minimise your carbon footprint.
