Your ultimate Beyond experience starts from the moment you land. Your driver will be waiting for you at the airport, either Rijeka, Pula, Zagreb, Ljubljana, Trieste, Treviso or Venice, with one of our luxury cars.

After a pleasant ride to the five-star Design Hotel Bevanda, you will meet our guides and relax with a welcome drink.

We imagine you will probably be very impatient to start riding, however, to us, your safety comes first. We will have a short talk about safety, review the map and the itinerary, and perform the bike fitting. After that you will be ready to begin your cycling adventure. The tour will start with a pleasant ride through the fashionable town of Opatija.

After the warm up in Opatija and its surroundings, you will have time to relax on the beach or take a walk along the famous promenade in Opatija, called “Lungo mare”. During the evening hours you will experience true hedonistic moments as we introduce you to Croatian cuisine at the famous “Bevanda” restaurant.

To have a glance at the view we’ll climb to mount St. Jelena (3,5km climb 4% average).

Passing through fisherman villages we’ll be reaching a small, old village Brseč. The Road to Brseč is a pure anti stress therapy as we’ll enjoy the beautiful nature with fresh air from the Adriatic sea and pine trees alongside the road.

Saturday is reserved for the ”Queen stage”. After the morning espresso we’ll warm up our legs and continue on the Tour of Croatia’s hardest stage – the Ucka climb. The notorious climb starts at Ičići (14,3 km - 1064 m - 6,3%), reaching the top Poklon, where we’ll slowly roll over to ”Terra Istria”, the Istrian peninsula and enjoy a beautiful view of the undulating terrain. With safety precaution we’ll ride to the bottom of the mountain where we’ll regroup and discuss our next action. With this ride we will be entering the Heart of Istria.

To reach Motovun as our final destination of the day we’ll pass the city of Buzet which is well known for its valuable truffles. For Motovun final climb and top finish we’ll have to climb 3,4 km 253 m elevation and 7% average with some final 300m of ”pavé” just like in famous Flanders. After a short pause we’ll go to what is probably the best restaurant when it comes to delicious truffle specialties where we’ll attend a small presentation about the culture of truffles and istrian cousine.

A relaxing shuttle ride will be arranged back to Opatija where we can prepare for a visit to the ancient town of Kastav. Kastav is situated above the Kvarner bay and offers a stunning 180deg view of our beautiful coast and islands. We will then take a small walk through the old town, take some fresh air and prepare ourselves for some more hedonism prepared by Nenad Kukurin, one of the pioneers of “slow food” in Croatia. Restaurant Kukuriku is one of most prestigious restaurants where we’ll have a taste of mediterranean cousine based on seasonal and local ingredients. Mr. Kukurin will surely have some beautiful stories about food and wine to tell. You can expect superb atmosphere.
