Enjoy not only a fantastic bike ride through Korcula’s beautiful countryside, but also stops at three local producers where your taste-buds will get going on some fantastic local products.
- A moderately paced ride through wonderful country trails
- Opportunity to meet three local producers of Korcula’s finest honey, wine and jam
- Learn the fascinating process of how honey is produced
- Taste the delicious white wine Grk, produced almost exclusively in Lumbarda
- Sample homemade sweet treats, jams and olive oil at a local homestead
Heading away from Korcula Town towards Lumbarda by bike, our first stop comes after no more than 15 minutes at one of the region’s top honey producers. Here we will learn how honey gets from the bee hives to jars, followed by honey tasting.
Back on our bikes we take to a picturesque country trail before finding ourselves at a top Grk producing winery where we will sit down and enjoy several wines, accompanied by Dalmatian snacks of ham, cheese and marinated fish.
Our final stop is a short cycle away and takes us to the home and gardens of our friend Ivan and his wife Ana. Here we will see where much of their fruits are grown before trying their award winning jam selection, which is truly outstanding, along with homemade liquors, wine, sweet treats and olive oil. We round the taste extravaganza off with some crepe style pancakes filled with jam, before heading back to Korcula. The ride back is through some truly wonderful countryside and will take 30-45 minutes.

John led our family of four on the tasting tour today. It was perfectly paced. The bike ride was fun and we rode along some beautiful trails. We stopped at 3 very different locations to taste food and wine, each with very friendly and interesting hosts. The produce we tasted was amazing.
John is an excellent tour guide, relaxed and friendly and full of knowledge.
Our kids (11 and 13) both loved the experience (and they are very discerning!!)
A fantastic half day out exploring another aspect of Korcula, this tour is definitely worth taking.
We contacted Korcula Explorer about their Taste of Korcula by bike tour having done a similar tour in Vietnam and it was one of the highlights of our trip. We asked them to put on an additional date since the tour was not available during our short stay in Korcula and they readily obliged. Really flexible and helpful! My advice would be to contact them if the tour you want isn’t shown in their website - this is a great experience not to be missed!
We had a wonderful afternoon on bike exploring are area around Korcula, getting away from the crowds, meeting local producers, sampling new tastes and flavours from liqueurs, jams, cheese, meats, olive oil, fig wine vinegar (which is amazing) and of course local wine.
Our guide Rachel was very knowledgable and went out of her way to do whatever was required to ensure we had a wonderful time, including meeting us in the town the next day with our purchases so that we did not have to carry them back by bike.
Really enjoyed discovering Korcula with “off the beaten path” places I would never had found on my own. Rachael was a wonderful guide. It was an especially hot day for our tour and I was concerned that an afternoon tour would be too difficult. There are a few “rolling hills” with multiple stops. Tasting the honey, jellies, liquors and wines was a treat. I would do this tour again
Just wanted to say another thank you to you and John for organising the most fantastic tour yesterday! We had such a great time and will absolutely recommend Korcula Explorer to any of our friends who are planning a visit to Croatia
