Adventurous riding deep into Croatia's mountains
Croatia is understandably famous for its islands and beaches, but by comparison its mountains are less well known. Our route starts in the spectacular karst environment of Plitvice Lakes, a UNESCO World Heritage site, before heading into the Velebit National Park where the wide trails are perfect for mountain biking. Our point-to-point route has plenty of challenging climbs and excellent descents, but isn't overly technical. We spend a remote night in the Zavizan mountain hut to enjoy the wilderness before heading to the coast to soak up the sun and round off our trip with an island ride.
