Cycling holiday on Korcula

Day 3 - 50km, 04:45u, 930 ↑↓

Today a pit ride with quite a few altimeters. We drive through various old villages that this island is rich with. We stop in Blato, where more than 11.000 people lived during the heyday. Today, around 3.500 still live there. Almost at the end of the ride we visit a local wine cellar.

Day 4 - 43km, 04:00u, 780 ↑↓

Today we cycle to the island of the same name, Korcula. According to the locals, the famous world traveler Marco Polo was born here. This is of course disputable, but it could very well be that he moved here as a small child, since this island used to be under the Venetian rule. On the way to Korcula we visit several villages.

Day off or optionally an excursion and/or a tour with an English-speaking guide. A trip by bike or a nice walk is of course also an option.

Day 6 - 42km, 04:10u , 700 ↑↓

Cycle tour to the town of Pupnat with Lumbarda as the final destination. Pupnat is the oldest village on the island of Korcula, you cycle on an old road that was built in the time of Napoleon. The village has been cleverly moved by settlers in the hilly part of the island to not be noticed by pirates. After this we cycle on to the fishing village of Lumbarda. This is a village with quiet and cozy beaches and delicious wines. The Grk grape is grown around the village and used for fine dessert wines and white wine. Most winemakers produce enough to provide local restaurants with their wines and to meet their own needs. A good reason to try the local wine at the restaurants in Lumbarda!

Day 7 - 60km, 04:45u, 900 ↑↓
