Description of Croatia Ciro bike route tour, Dubrovnik to Mostar

This Ciro Bike Route cycling holiday follows, for the most part, the former Austro-Hungarian railway track from Croatia to Mostar in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH). Opened in 2017, this spectacular route takes you across the border and through some beautiful Balkan countryside.

On this tailor made seven day trip, we give you all the maps and itineraries you need to cycle along the 160km route as well as some recommended diversions off the trail. This is a moderate cycling holiday, covering between 45 – 85 km a day depending on the itinerary you settle on. We have not included bike rental as part of the holiday price because sometimes people like to bring their own, but also because you can choose between renting MTB, hybrid and also electric bikes.

Whichever bike you choose, this unique cycling holiday will take you through some of Croatia and BiH’s most stunning regions, starting with the Konavle Valley which has the Adriatic on one side and Sniježnica mountains on the other. Then crossing over the border into BiH where myriad treats await along the trail, such as the Bjelašnica Mountains, Popovo Polj Valley, the Neretva River and ancient towns such as Blagaj and Mostar. You will be diverted from the railway track from time to time as parts of it are still in use by trains, giving you good reason to explore these other highlights mentioned above. However, we are local experts and cycling aficionados so rest assured that we will create a perfectly adventurous journey for you around both countries’ natural and cultural heritage highlights.

Hello. If you'd like to chat about this holiday or need help finding one we're very happy to help. Rosy & team.

Responsible tourism: Croatia Ciro bike route tour, Dubrovnik to Mostar


We work with small groups, every area that we visit, stay or have activity is our common heritage, heritage that we use and share with others. With our minimum impact and interventions, our actions to keep them in the same conditions or even better as we have found them, that is our travel philosophy and mostly standard of our travelers. As tour company we try to be carbon neutral and minimize CO2 poluton our vehicles by using public transports (whenever is possible) , low carbon transportation. As active tour company we walk, ride bikes and paddle. Using bikes, walking or pedaling from place to place we minimize pollution and our impact in the wildlife.
We encourage our travelers to use and drink tap water or if they have to buy bottled water it is better to use bigger packing and pour water to their own bottles. Small plastic bottles and cans of the soda drinks are very high at list of the trash in the world today. Water is also limited, a source that we have to appreciate and control spending.

Wildlife and ecosystem around us can have benefits or negative impacts, sometimes our behaving can harm wildlife and nature by leaving litter in the sea or beach, taking souvenirs (stones, shells or flowers...) this actions can have very negative consequences to the sea ecosystem, some endemic species and protected areas. We suggest to leave ni traces.

We inform travelers to be very careful with fire and to avoid open fire during summer, if they would like to go on fishing we suggest them to go with some local fishermen, if they go scuba diving we inform them about diving clubs which will take them to underwater archaeological sights which are protected and conserved. During their diving or snorkeling it is not allowed to take away anything from the sea.


We think that people are key of the success in any profession, as local travel company we know local communities, producers, wine makers, fisherman and farmers... our service is very much about local experience and through last 10 years connections we have surrounded with great partners and suppliers for our services. Working with host who accommodate travelers in 200 years stone house decorated with antique furniture, or if whole house is been renovated following traditional materials,…we work with small boutique hotels that use to be train station and now they are renovated into fantastic hotels,...framers and wine makers a families with few hundred years old tradition of making wine, olive oil or herbal liqueurs, but nowadays they continue on organic ways but following tradition and local lifestyle. As active travel company our tours are not just about outdoor, it is more combination of activities, great services and professionalism of our employees and local experience through food, wine, crafts, life style ...

5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed on 05 Jun 2018 by

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Sitting outside at our accomodation watching thunder and lightning storm in the valley next to us after a really pleasant cycle and visit to the museum and cave system in the Bosnian mountain next to us.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

It was no where near as intense as I thought it would be and we were well looked after by the organisation. We got to meet great people and have new experiences - really recommend the food and at each place you stay there is a new visit or learning to do. For example our best bit was visiting the cave system in the bosnian mountains in Zavala. We also went on to explore Sarajevo despite the biking ending up in Mostar (as we shortened our trip to 5 days) a really great oppurtunity to get from A to B while enjoying the culture of all the places along the way.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

The cycling reduced our environmental impact and really gave me a new perspective on the landscape we were exploring.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Really great opportunity to explore a new part of the world and really get to see what life is like there.
