Croatia has been a hot destination in the last few years and My Vacation Lady is getting a lot of requests for Croatia as both an active honeymoon or soft adventure vacation destination.

So why is Croatia so popular as a soft adventure destination?


Whether you rent a bike or bring your own, there are many beautiful biking paths or tours in Croatia.

Here are few of the favorites:

  • Istria– beautiful coastal trails as well as gravel paths through the forests.
  • Split– one of the best locations for seaside adventure biking along the beaches or harbor, as well as the Park Forest of Marjan.
  • Vis–  one of the more off-the-beaten-path Croatian islands, it’s jam-packed with treasures to be discovered on two wheels. An easy beach ride is from  Grandovac Beach to Prirovo Beach, but there are also a network of paths that are better for more active cycling.  Renting bikes on Vis is easy, as well.
  • The Hvar bicycle route  will give you the opportunity to see island life outside the touristy areas with majestic Adriatic sea views and rolling hills.
