ABOUT US AND OUR MISSION

Back there in the 80’s I used to live in the Netherlands .That’s when my involvment in the world of cycling began .I gave myself the pleasant charge of showing my Dutch friends how beautiful my homecountry Croatia was .

So back in those times I dreamt of a company which would give people the opportunity to experience amazing places, stunning landscapes, incredibly varied cultures , moving history and fabulous food and wine of Croatia . Besides I was convinced that cycling was the best way to do that – and SITNICA was born , back in 2000. To help others enjoy my country .

Untitled-6I still am convinced and keep on showing the world this land of contrasts and diverse landscapes : the well – indented , rocky coastline , more than a thousand islands, small towns that please the senses with their beautiful architecture and atmosphere, the green península Istria with wine roads and truffles , historic región of Dalmatia with olives, aromatic plants, white karstic rock amid the azure Adriatic Sea, the unspoiled interior with the valleys of the rivers Sava, Drava and Mura, the littoral landscape in the immediate vicinity of the mountains and forested regions of Gorski Kotar and the exceptional National Parks of Krka and Northern Velebit. I have gone a little bit further by now so I am busy to add new countries and regions to our assortment of cycling holidays.

Untitled-4The SITNICA team would be happy to bring you the bicycle holiday of a lifetime and at the same time focus on protecting and conserving the places we visit. In order to accomplish this, we have developed low impact biking tours so that our travelers can experience and appreciate both local ecological and cultural aspects. Another main goal is to involve the local community in our programmes by visiting artisans, local restaurants, specific shops , using as much as possible family run hotels , hiring local transportation and employing local guides. Over the years we’ve built up a diverse team of guides . Our guides take care of all of the daily planning and organization, leaving you free to get on your bike and enjoy the ride. All are friendly, approachable, always willing to help and happy to give advice and tips.

Please contact us to ask a question about one of our trips or if you need information about cycling in these parts of the world in general. We truly enjoy hearing from you

— and welcome ANY questions!

If you have a group or organization that is interested in a custom tour, we can tailor most of our trips to fit your schedule, interests and budget.

Hope to meet you on one of our trips!

Hi Alen.
Wanted to drop a quick email to thank you and your helpful crew for such a great trip. It far exceeded my expectations and for all who have asked, I have highly recommended you and your company.
Hope you are not working too hard and enjoying the warm weather which I am sure you are still experiencing.

Hi Alen

A note from us to thank you for creating a wonderful trip. Once home I looked through some of the information provided by other tour companies. With the insights gained from having now been to Croatia, I am convinced we picked the right fellow to plan our cycle vacation. Your routes were great and varied enough that I feel I have a good sense of the country. Your trip notes were fabulous and made finding the route easy. Also thanks for being so patient in answering all of our many questions. All in all a memorable trip. If you ever want to refer to us for an endorsement, don't hesitate to contact us.

We also still extend an invitation to you and family to visit us and experience cycling and sightseeing in Canada.

Cheers,
Jean and Jim

Hi Alen.

We are back home and continuing on with our cycling, although the few hills we have here look really small compared to the ones we did in Croatia.
Thanks for the great trip and your cycle route selection certainly gave us a good overview of the diverse landscape in Croatia. Lynda and I really enjoyed the trip and we now have many fond memories that will encourage us to continue on with our cycle trips. On our last day in Dubrovnik we watched a cruise ship come into port and we both said "not for us, cycling is way more fun and as long as we can cycle, we will.
Your hotel selection for the trip was awesome and we were always amazed at how helpful the staff at the hotels were. Good accommodations, great food and excellent support along the way, we couldn't ask for a better trip.

Hi Alen.
I would just like to thank you again for making the CCCTS bike tour in Croatia such a successful experience. I had loads of fun - "best time ever”. You were such an organized and professional guide. I was super impressed with your attention to detail and how accommodating you were to all of our idiosyncrasies (sorry about the fish heads). Thank you also to Damir and Goran. They were awesome also. I think Croatia is an absolutely beautiful country and hope to visit again some day. Thank you again, Lynne

Hi Alen.
We had a really great time and thought the routes, equipment and organisation were all fantastic so happy to put a review on there when you've got the site set up.
Thanks. Noel
