Activity Level: 3 (Moderate)
Av. daily ride: 52km (32 miles).
Terrain & route: The rides mainly follow tarmac roads (which may be pot-holed in places). The roads are generally quiet with a few busier sections around the towns themselves. Much of the cycling will take place along the Istrian penisular. It is a land of diverse scenery with rolling hills, pine forests, lush wheat fields, plateaus, valleys, vineyards and olive groves. The route is mostly undulating but the distances are not too challenging so there will be plenty of time to enjoy the scenery and the towns we pass through.
Although the trip is 100% vehicle supported, the vehicle has limited seats for only 2 clients. The vehicle is there to carry luggage, water and snacks, and support the group. Rides are from hotel to hotel with no vehicle transfers during the day, so you should be confident in your ability to ride these distances.
Normal group size and age
Normally 6 to 16, plus local leader and a driver. Minimum age 16.
The vast majority of Exodus adventures are adult group holidays. Groups are always small in size. We strongly believe that this adherence to small groups means a better experience for all; more time with your guide, less waiting around and a reduced impact on the communities and environments visited.
Each group is generally made up of like-minded travellers - with singles, couples and friends all joining in together. All these trips are suitable for single travellers, but if you prefer to travel with clients booking individually, please see our Solo Departures page.
Most people who enjoy a weekend riding on either trails or roads at home will enjoy a B-grade trip. You need to be in good health and reasonably fit. Ideal for occasional cyclists, or as a more relaxed trip for fitter riders. B-grade off-road trips require no previous experience. Distances on road trips rarely exceed 70 kms (43 miles) per day.
Exodus is always looking to improve our current itineraries and to offer something different. With many new trips this year, there is something unique and different to try every year.
Cycling: Our cycling holidays come in all shapes and sizes; from gentle self-guided trips in the Veneto, to tackling the High Atlas in Morocco, or exploring the length of Vietnam.
Culture: Let Exodus show you a different side to many of the world's greatest cultural attractions.
