Krk Bike Family Story – the course of the tour:

Following a short ride through the historical heart of Krk City's old town, the route heads off along the Dražica promenade to the Koralj Hotel. The scenery of Krk City is left behind to access the road leading up to the marked cycling trail no. 8. The trail will lead us to the Golden Drops Path – through olive tree groves and drystone walls – a typical Krk landscape. It then heads on an off-road trail, followed by a demanding climb to the picturesque Lakmartin. Here we anticipate the first break, as well as a visit to the Magriž family farm, known for the production of authentic Krk Island cheese, with its distinctive taste and aroma.

After the local produce tasting, the tour continues through olive groves, up to the main road, and then connects to an easy coastal cycle path leading to Punat – one of the largest nautical centers in Croatia.

Since Punat stands out as the center of olive tree cultivation, tasting the "liquid gold" – the olive oil - will be organized at the refreshment point. The break will be an excellent opportunity to engage the children in a short game, "Hunt for the treasure of the Frankopans, Krk's noble family." The creative treasure hunt will be played by following the instructions of a professional guide. The route follows the coastline up to the cycling trail no. 6, to the Prniba peninsula – the perfect place for a relaxing off-road loop ride through the pine forest.

The route then follows the road back to the city of Krk, where restaurant Volsonis will provide all the participants with refreshments. Here they will also be able to see the archaeological site that shows more than 3000 years of history of the city of Krk.
