Island Hvar enjoys 2724 sunny hours each year. Around 1000 hours more than most places in the UK.

The island of Hvar is the queen of the Croatian Dalmatian islands. It has recently celebrated 140 years of organised tourism and is considered to be one of the 10 most beautiful islands in the world.

Hvar is home of Ivo Piljic, who will serve as your host and guide. He is probably more accurate than any GPS device when it comes to local roads. Anywhere you go on the island, you’ll see people calling him by his first name. Ivo will take you cycling on routes which left the team of Cyclist magazine feeling euphoric.

There are only a few places in the Mediterranean where peaks of over 1500 metres rise so steeply close to the sea.

Biokovo is the second-highest mountain range in Croatia. Its highest peak is Sveti Jure at 1762m. A vast area of Biokovo is protected as a nature park with over 1500 plant and animal species, some of which are endemic.

In cycling, Biokovo is known as the hellish climb of the Tour of Croatia. Our guide Ivo took Cyclist magazine to climb Sveti Jure. Bikenauts will take you on the same quest. You’ll find yourself speechless from the views. And breathless from wild twists and turns of the road continuously moving up.

The view from the top of Sveti Jure is worth all the suffering you put into the climb. And then the sweetest descent awaits.
