Motorradabenteuer Kroatien 2018 – Eine Reisedokumentation – Motorcycle Adventure to Croatia – HD
Are you doing a video again? Yes of course we’ll do a video again. You do not know that differently from us. This year we have chosen Croatia as our destination. More precisely, the island of Krk. And so we embark on the 20-hour journey, across Germany, Austria and Slovenia to our destination on the Adriatic Sea. Finally, we reach the Kvarner bay and cross the bridge that connects the mainland with the island of Krk. Only a few kilometers later, we are on the four star campsite Njivice, in the same place, which is one of the largest campsites in Croatia and will serve us from now on as a base camp. Our two pitches are right in the first row to the great pebble beach and with a beautiful view of the beautiful blue Adriatic Sea. But we do not want to spend the day of arrival in a deck chair, so we start a round trip on the island of Krk. The island is located in the middle of the Kvarner bay and is the northernmost island on the Adriatic. On the island of Krk there is a mild Mediterranean climate, which is due to a favorable geographical location. On the one hand you will find picturesque bays, fertile fields and dense forests, on the other hand stony and treeless karst and mountain landscapes. Over a scenic, spectacular downhill, we reach the place Punat and take there in a restaurant a small snack to us. On small, winding roads, it goes back to Njivice, where after a short time delicious grilled food sizzles on the grill. After the cook has served a light breakfast, we start today’s day tour on the island of Cres. We leave the campsite in bright sunshine and best Weather forecast. After a short time we reach the small ferry port, from which we want to cross over to the island of Cres. After Jürgenheinz bought the tickets, we roll relaxed on the ferry. It expect us a 20-minute crossing, which we enjoy in the great weather, of course, on deck. At Cres, we first move our bikes to north, because we want to take a closer look at the mountain village of Beli. Beli is located in the north of the island of Cres, just above the east coast. It is only accessible by land over a very narrow and winding road. The place is the only inhabited village in this area and is located on a several hundred meters high karst plateau. Beli also has a harbor and a local campsite, which is much lower than the village itself. This port is our destination and can only be reached via a steep, narrow and unsecured road. Once at the bottom, we order a coffee and a dark, American Soft drink. It goes back, on the same way. We pass the city of Cres and make our way to the south of the island. Cres is a mountainous island that is 66 kilometers long and two to twelve kilometers wide. We reach Mali Losinj in the sheltered Augustus bay. Benefiting from the excellent climatic conditions, the place has become one of the most popular holiday resorts in the Kvarner Bay. Life in the town pulsates from the harbor, where a variety of restaurants, cafes and taverns have settled. In one of these restaurants, we enjoy a delicious fish plate. Shortly after the exit from Mali Losinj, we see a small pebble beach. Without further ado, we exchange the motorcycle clothing against our swimwear and plunge us into the cool water. With the ferry we transfer again to Krk. Back at the campsite, there is first a rocket plate and later a well-hung fried sausage. Today we start a three-day round trip, where we will spend the night in pre-booked Apartments. Today we leave the coastal regions, to drive through the midland to the Plitvice Lakes. The ride goes through quaint villages and huge forest areas where bears and many other wild animals are still resident. Shortly before Ostarije we are stopped by a policeman in the middle of a mountain road, because here is a car race and right in front of us is the turning point. And so it means to park the motorcycles and wait. After a good hour, the track is released again. We reach our apartments near the Plitvice Lakes and treat ourselves to a refreshing shower. Then we climb again the BMW’s to drive into the nature reserve. You’ve probably already recognized it. Here at the Plitvice Lakes, scenes of various Karl May films, including “The Treasure in the Silver Lake” were filmed. The National Park Plitvice Lakes, is a 295 square kilometer forest reserve in the center of Croatia. He is known for his 16 cascaded lakes, which are connected by waterfalls and extend into a limestone gorge. Several walking and hiking trails run along the shore or across the water. For this you should take at least two to three hours time. An electrically operated ferry connects the twelve upper and four lower lakes. The sun is shining and so we take our little breakfast at a small idyllic stream. Right outside the door of our house. Then we start for the next stage of the day to Zadar. It goes again through the midland, back to the sea. Again we drive through Croatian villages and endless, winding forest roads. What kind of animal was on the rotisserie? We were not sure and tapped to a goat. But we are more worried about the approaching thunderstorm. This gets us a few kilometers later with full force. But in Zadar the rain is over again. Our booked apartment, in the middle of Zadar, turns out to be a real stroke of luck. As soon as we have put our gloves and boots to dry, the sun is shining again in Zadar. We first make a foray through the old town and quench our thirst in a pub with beer and Slibowitz. Short time later, the small hunger is also reported. Like many other tourists and locals, we end the evening at the famous water organ of Zadar and watch the sun sink into the blue Adriatic. After a fun breakfast with yoghurt and uncooked beans – thank you Muehle – we leave Zadar after a good night’s sleep. On the way back to Krk, we ride today on the island of Pag. The island of Pag is known for its meager, moon-like landscape, which makes up the special charm of this island. Also from Pag, we must take a ferry to the mainland. Arrived over there, we overcome several serpentine several hundred meters in altitude, to get back into the mountains. We drive again through the midland, which is not a typical holiday area, but offers an incredible mix of beautiful scenery. Great winding roads doing here motorcycling a real pleasure. The Croatian outback presents itself far away from the big tourist traffic much more authentic and just typically Croatian. We reach the coast again and spend the last few kilometers on the Jadranska Magistrala, the Adriatic coastal road. On the way, we still cover ourselves with food at the Lidl. Then we drive again over the impressive bridge that connects the mainland with the island of Krk. It was opened in 1980 after four years of construction. Back at the campsite, we as good neighbors are still helping, to launch a boat into the water. Have breakfast on the waterfront, in glorious sunshine. You could get used to that, but unfortunately the last day beginns for us today. Once again we go to the mountains and one last time the Croatian curves are thoroughly tested and approved. One last dinner before returning to Germany the next morning. We liked it a lot. Goodbye Croatia – Doviđenja!
