Where we sleep

We try to offer small rural inns and hotels whereever possible , chosen for their character, location and gastronomy . From boutique-style inns to luxury villas, you’ll always experience something typical for the region you are staying . Some tours include an agritouristic farm stay  where you will meet the local family serving home made food and local wines .

SITNICA uses a respectable standard of accommodation at a very competitive price.
Accommodation is based on twin share or double rooms. Single accommodation is available on payment of a supplement .
We cannot guarantee a single room or a twin room on all our trips each night .

EAT and DRINK

Apres-cycling thing !
Do you like to involve yourself into local peoples’ daily chat !? Try a cold beer or a goldencoloured glass of Malvazija wine on a typical paved medieval square in one of the numerous , picturesque hilltop towns .

From a simple picnic  of local cheeses and cold meats  to a three-course dinner at a fish restaurant  and from that rich breakfast in the hotel to the home made lunch in one of the typical konobas with fine local wine .
We are committed to let you experince the sincere cuisine of the region .
The regions we visit are synonym for good wine due to man’s hard work, naturally, but first of all natural features that guarantee high-quality grapes. Those are position, soil, climate and relief, since each contributes to a certain extent to the charm of good wine.
Cycle along vineyards of the Istrian peninsula and flavor the past . Visit private wine cellars or small beer breweries  so you can hear stories from locals and understand better how they try to survive in their surroundings .

ACCOMMODATION and FOOD on TOURS :

Accommodation is clean and simple. You’ll mainly stay in small, locally-run,
2-4 star hotels and guesthouses, which reflect the character of the area.
Breakfasts are included and generally are buffets that take your active program into consideration.
Lunches are included only with Guided Tours , not within self Guided Tours .
We will provide these taking in consideration every little detail and
variety . Sometimes we will sit down in a local konoba for home made delicacies .
Dinners are usually not included except sometimes a tradtional farewell dinner or a welcome evening meal.
Suggestions for places to eat will be included in your trip notes
and will also be discussed during welcome briefing .
A HB = Half Board option includes your evening meals each night , usually a 3 course meal .
An endless supply of seafood , truffles , Italian based homemade pasta meals and nostalgic old
grilled meat based meals give you a big mix which should satisfy your palates .
Vegatarians will find their satisfaction too as there is an endless supply of vegetables ,
truffles combined or not with different pasta based plates .
Just indicate if you should have any dietary requirements .

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.

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
