Cycling in Croatia


While certainly not the quickest way to get around, cycling does grant an experience that will be remembered by every one of your senses. Whether, it's the smells of wildflowers, lavender and jasmine in the lush valleys and mountains of Istria or the taste of light wines as you peddle through the vineyards of Slavonia and Turoplje. The forests of Gorski Kotar provide a completely different backdrop for your vacation and a respite from the sun as you work your way across Croatia. The islands provide additional opportunities to enjoy more than those in their automobiles, with ferries providing very reasonable transport for both you and your bike.

The Plitvice Lakes National Park is rapidly becoming one of Europe's favorite destinations for bike riding. It's forests, lakes, rivers, and waterfalls are easily negotiated on two wheels and this is the best way to take in its grandeur. A bicycle is your best option as cars and motorcycles are not welcome in its confines. In addition to the many hotels in this area of Croatia there is ample camping available a mere 5km from the park’s North Entrance. In the summer and its longer days the park is open longer during the day but it still doesn't feel like you have enough time to drink from it's pools and springs while you take in all its charms.
