Croatia is an amazing country and one that needs to be explored completely. You can easily drive a car all around this European destination. But I recommend choosing to ride a bike through Croatia instead. When you do, you have the opportunity to stop in many places you couldn’t with other modes of transportation. You can choose any region for your adventure and I can help you find the one your family will enjoy the most for your vacation in Croatia.

You can easily go at any time of the year. I must warn you that the months of July through September are the busiest. It is during those three months that the Croatian biking trails are packed with people doing the same thing. If you do not love large crowds, you may want to travel to Croatia during one of the off-peak months.
