Day 1: Dubrovnik (Embarkation) 
Individual journey to Dubrovnik. Check-in on board starts between 2 and 2:30 pm at Gruž, the town port.
At 4:30 pm, a guided tour through Dubrovnik is offered, where you hear some interesting details of the town’s history and visit the most important sites, such as the Roland, the city walls or the Franciscan monastery. The boat will spend the night in Gruž offering the guests an opportunity to experience Dubrovnik’s nightlife.


Day 2: Islands of Šipan and Mljet (Cycle route approx. 7 + 16 mi./11 km + 25 km)​
A pleasant cycle trip takes you after breakfast past the villas of Dubrovnik’s rich and noble citizens and further on through the verdant forests, fertile valleys and subtropical parks of Šipan Island. Afterwards, cruise to the green and forested island Mljet - known as the honey island. It is with 90% of woodland one of the best wooded islands in the Mediterranean area. Homer mentioned this lovely island in his epic poem “Odyssey”. He made it a home for the Nymph Calypso and the legendary Greek king Odysseus, whom could not resist Calypso and stayed on Mljet for seven years. In the afternoon, explore Mljet national park by bicycle and spend the night in Pomena.
 
Day 3: Lastovo Island (Cycle route approx. 18 mi./28 km)
Early in the morning the ship takes you to the Island of Lastovo. The island of Lastovo is one of the smallest inhabited islands in the Adriatic Sea. Emperor Augustus appreciated the mild climate, and in Roman times it was even named “Augusta Insula” after him. The Island has barely more than 1,000 inhabitants who continue to live off fishing the extremely rich waters, agriculture, and viticulture. The gold-colored white wine “Marastina”, known even beyond Croatia’s borders, is grown here. Today’s cycle tour takes you in a large circle across the beautiful island.
 
Day 4: Islands of Korčula and Gradac (Cycle route 12.5 mi./20 km + optional 16 mi./25 km)
After the days first crossing over to Korčula Island you bike from Vela Luka to Prigradica, where you meet your ship. The ship lifts anchor and takes you to the mainland. There is enough time to enjoy a lengthy swim stop on anchor. Today's destination is the harbor of Gradac located quite close to the delta of the Neretva River, which is the most important one in the Herzegovina region.

Day 5: Excursion to Mostar
In the morning a transfer bus takes you across the Bosnia-Herzegovina border to Mostar. A guided tour familiarizes you with the location and the town’s world-famous landmark, the bridge across the River Neretva. It was destroyed in 1993 through heavy shelling, reopened in 2004 and is protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Grab the chance to stroll through the old town of Mostar which is the National heritage of Bosnia and Herzegovina. On your return trip, stop in Počitelj with its well-preserved fortress (or if the weather is very warm and sunny at the Kravica waterfall) before continuing to Gradac. Back at the ship the day ends with relaxing on board by having a nice glass of wine.
 
Day 6: Korčula Island (Cycle route approx. 31 mi./50 km)
A morning cruise takes you to Prigradica on Korčula Island, said to be the most beautiful Dalmatian islands. Explore the east part of the island by bicycle. Today's cycle tour takes you from Prigradica to Korčula town. Enjoy the view into the deep-blue water of Pupnat bay on your ride. This beautiful bay is a favorite scene for photographers on this tour. In the late afternoon, you reach the island’s capital Korčula town, which competes with Venice for the honor of being the birthplace of the famous explorer Marco Polo. There is ample time in the evening to wander through the fabulous old town and its narrow lanes laid out in a herringbone pattern.
 
Day 7: Mainland Prapratno - Slano - Dubrovnik (Cycle route approx. 19 mi./30 km)
A longer crossing on board the boat hugs the beautiful coastline of the Pelješac peninsula on your way to the small ferry harbour of Prapratno. The tour takes us from Prapratno to Ston where there is enough time to take a walk along the famous city wall. This is the longest, intact, fortification wall in Europe and is often compared with the Great Wall of China. The tour takes you further to the small harbor of Slano on the mainland. The boat awaits you here forone last cruise back to the city of Dubrovnik. A cheerful evening meal on board the boat gives you time to celebrate the success of the week with fellow travelers and tour guides.
