This was the highlight of our Dalmatian Coast cruise. Reservation process was easy; we were met promptly at the Hvar dock and whisked up to the family estate. We were treated better than royalty – they treated us like friends. The bike ride was easy (a bit of a pull at the end for this grandma), but never difficult. We rolled past robust rosemary plants, lacy anise, lavender, olives and grapes, and had a full portion of the sights and smells of natural Hvar. When we return, we’ll absolutely sign on for another of their Natural Hvar tours.
If you need a break from the excitement of Hvar town and want an authentic Croatian experience check out this boutique tour group. The founders have been on the island for generations and are committed to organic farming and sustaining island life traditions. On our private bike tour we were treated to an intimate narrative of the unique natural beauty of the island which is covered in lavender and other fragrant plants.“
This was by far my favorite experience of Hvar. Getting away from the hustle and bustle of the crowds and experiencing some on the ground real local culture. I felt like I was being let in on a big secret of the true island life and culture of Hvar. Our ground roots included three city visits, homemade wine and brandy and an authentic family owned restaurant dinner in our guides hometown which was the cherry on the top. My advice is to do it, you won’t regret your decision and you will get a authentic taste of the island culture.
If you are looking for a supremely profession and educational tour of this gorgeous island, look no further! This is it!

You will never be disappointed. Sincerely, Martha Fulton PS. I am coming back to Hvar and I will look forward to return and learn more. My thanks to Natural Hvar Tours.
From the first communication with them to arrange our 3 days of cycling in Hvar, it was apparent it was going to be a great trip. We were not disappointed, our group of 4 adults from New Zealand booked in 3 days of cycling with Natural Hvar Tours, each day cycling was different and we experienced the true Hvar Island that not many of the tourists arriving in Hvar old town see.
The cycling distances each day were perfect for the hot conditions, and one of the best part was the lunches Grgo arranged for us after the morning of cycling. Authentic Croatian meals in amazing restaurants the average tourist would not know about. The food was fabulous.
The 3 days of cycling was our highlight of our time in Croatia.
