“We had THE BEST time on our tour with John! He was accommodating and easy to communicate with. It felt like we were meeting up with a friend that lives in Korcula. We loved riding bikes through the gorgeous scenery and the work we did on the bikes made the food and wine that much better!”

Description
  • Experience a moderately paced cycle ride through wonderful Korcula country trails
  • Opportunity to meet three local producers of Korcula’s finest honey, wine, jams and olive oil
  • Learn how various local products are grown and produced
  • Taste the delicious white wine Grk which is almost exclusively grown in Lumbarda
  • Enjoy delicious food tastings of traditional sweet and savoury snacks

First up, this is a mountain bike tour. We do not offer tours by e-bike. Be prepared to pedal!

Heading away from Korcula Town towards Lumbarda by bike, your first stop comes after no more than 15 minutes. You will meet one of the region’s top honey producers and learn how honey gets from the beehives to the jars, followed by honey tasting.

Back on your bike, you will take to picturesque country trails passing olive groves and vineyards before finding yourself at a top Grk producing winery.  Take a seat and enjoy several island produced wines, accompanied by delicious, regional snacks.

Your final stop is a short pedal away and takes you to the home and gardens of our friend Ivan and his wife Ana. Here you will see where their fruits are grown before trying their award-winning jam selection, which is truly outstanding, along with homemade liquors, wine, sweet treats and olive oil. This taste extravaganza is topped off with some crepe style pancakes filled with jam, before you will be transferred back to Korcula by van. Rest your bottom – no more biking!

Charlotte – Summer 2023 “We did the Taste of Korcula bike tour and it was a real highlight of our stay on the island. A beautiful scenic cycle through olive groves and vineyards led us to multiple tasting stops with local producers of honey, wine, jams, sweets and lots of other yummy delicacies. Rachael was a great guide – clearly so knowledgeable and passionate about the area- and did a great job in bonding the group! Would absolutely recommend to anyone who likes to try local food and drink local wine – you won’t regret it!”

Cecily – Summer 2023 “My husband and I absolutely loved the afternoon we spent participating in the “Taste of Korcula” bike tour hosted by John and Rachael! The bike tour was not too intense—though you should have some experience on a bike and there are some hills. And all of the stops were wonderful—this is a perfect way to learn more about Korcula’s agriculture and foodways, and to see some of its beautiful countryside. We especially enjoyed the time we spent on Ivan’s farm. The entire experience, which included a honey tasting on the outskirts of Korcula and wine tasting in Lumbarda, was wonderful.

This was absolutely one of the best experiences we have had in Croatia—or anywhere, for that matter. John and Rachael are kind, engaging, and gracious hosts, and there is no better way to spend an afternoon. I would absolutely recommend any tour that Korcula Explorer offers!”

Clare – Summer 2022 “We took part in the bike tour cycling from Korcula to Lumbarda, visiting 3 local producers on the way. The tour was perfectly described as moderate for 2 friends that hadn’t ridden a bike in a while. John was a great guide making sure we were all ok on the country tracks that we cycled. The scenery was breathtaking and the producers goods were top quality. I will be booking another tour with this company when I visit again.”

Jess – Summer 2022 “Fantastic day out, could not recommend more! Delicious food and so much amazing wine from great places along the bike ride. Great way to see the island. Will definitely be telling our friends to do this. Thanks John :)!!”

FAQs
How hard is the cycle ride?

Bikes are mountain bikes. We recommend that you have a good level of fitness for the cycle ride. You will cycle around 10kms, and this includes some road cycling, several hills and some off-road terrain. Keep in mind as well it gets very hot on Korcula, especially from late June until the end of August and you will be cycling in the sun. We would class the ride as moderate, but the hills and heat can be more of a challenge for some people. Although the ride is leisurely, we just want to ensure you will be comfortable to complete the ride.

What should I wear?

We advise that you wear clothes and shoes that you are comfortable cycling in.

What should I bring with me?

We suggest that you bring a minimum 1l of water per person for the cycle ride.
