“My husband and I loved every second of this tour!! John was our tour guide and he is such a pro! He knows a ton about the island, the wine, and is SUPER fun to hang out with! Our group of 9 all bonded during the gorgeous ride, and really got to know each other during the tastings. This tour has it all – exercise, wine, relaxing and lots of laughs!“

Description
  • Enjoy a cycle ride through the peaceful and scenic Korcula countryside not often explored by visitors to the island
  • Visit family-run wineries and learn more about the winemaking processes
  • Relax during indulgent wine tastings which include the uniquely delicious Grk wine, grown almost exclusively in the village of Lumbarda
  • Sample tasty traditional bites whilst enjoying stunning views of the vineyards
  • Get to know like-minded travellers over a few glasses of wine

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

Setting off from Korcula you’ll pass by beautiful countryside, local vineyards and olive groves whilst enjoying fantastic views of the village, archipelago and the Peljesac channel. During a couple of rest stops (make sure you bring water) we will share with you local knowledge about the area and answer any of your questions.

Towards the end of the bike ride, you’ll head to two family-run wineries to refresh & reward yourself with delicious wine grown in the area. This includes tastings of Grk, a unique and flavoursome white wine originating from Lumbarda village. Traditional appetisers will be served at one winery to accompany your wine tasting.

Once joyfully filled with wine and snacks it will be time to head back to Korcula Town. And relax at ease, we will provide a transfer for you and your bike – so no need to worry about cycling back after a few drinks.

NOTE: Please read the FAQ below about the difficulty of the bike ride, so you can be sure you will be comfortable joining this tour.

Kailey – Summer 2023 “I can’t say enough good things about the bike & wine tour with Rachael! The absolute highlight of our stay on Korcula. Rachael was such a great guide. She made our group feel comfortable and went at our pace for bike riding. The wineries she took us to were unbelievable and we had the best evening sipping wines and having great conversations with new people. If you’re in Korcula book a tour with Rachael & John!!!”

Dan – Summer 2023 “If you DON’T want to have fun or learn about wine and the island and meet an amazing tour guide Do not take this tour, if you do…then this is the tour for you, Jonathan was awesome, very knowledgeable, somewhat funny (he is a Brit after all) and made our tour amazing. This is a tour well worth the money, you will not be let down.”

Brad – Summer 2022 “The Korcula Explorer Bike & Wine Tour is incredible. My wife and I had the most fun and memorable time biking through the countryside’s vineyards, tasting delicious local wines from multiple wineries, and meeting such a nice group of people through this tour. John is a fantastic tour guide and meticulously organized every aspect of the tour. We would recommend Korcula Explorer’s tours to anyone.”

Samantha – 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 :)!!”

Bikes are mountain bikes. We recommend that you have a good level of fitness and experience of riding a bike. You will cycle around 10kms, and this includes several hills. The route may include some unlevel surfaces and 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?
