The first bike trip takes us at first along a gravel road in the direction of Crvena Luka before arriving at Biograd – the City of Kings. It is not far from there to the ferry to Pašman Island. Already on the crossing, we have a beautiful view of the harbour of Tkon. Having arrived on Pašman, we follow at first the coastal road before turning onto a gravel road taking us steadily up to the Jacob’s Peak. Our efforts are rewarded by a wonderful view across 50 islands. After lunch, we return on asphalt roads to Tkon. We arrive in Pakoštane in the late afternoon.

Today’s bike trip takes us first along an asphalt road towards Vrana. By a dirt road, we finally reach the Kamenjak lookout point opening onto a great view across Lake Vrana – Croatia’s largest lake and the resting place for many migrating birds – and the sea right behind it. After a lunch break, a technically demanding trail leads us through a canyon directly to the Lake Vrana Nature Park. Here, we can take a refreshing dip before returning to Pakoštane in the afternoon.

4th Day (Tue) Vodice - Okit - Tribunj - Vodice (biking distance 32 km / 20 mi. & 440 Hm / 1.445 ft. altitude difference)

After breakfast, a transfer bus is waiting to take us to Vodice, a lively tourist town that nevertheless has retained its medieval charm. From here, we follow our guide on demanding single trails on which, among other things, the annual Croatia Cup, a MBT race known well beyond Croatia’s borders, takes place. After ca. 10 km, the road takes us inland and up to the peak of Mt. Okit. Here stands the church of Mary-Mother of Carmel, which is visible from afar. Then we continue downhill on gravel tracks, past many olive groves, to Tribunj, a small wine-growing community. From there, a transfer takes us back to our apartment in Pakoštane

Today, a transfer bus takes us in the morning to Karin, today’s starting point. On the programme today is the exploration of a beautiful region where mountains and sea come together. The reward for the long ascent is the fabulous view onto the Velebit Mountains, the island of Pag, and the town of Zadar. The interesting descent takes us along winding field tracks and finally brings us back to the starting point. We should not miss a refreshing swim after the tour – so pack your swimming gear! On the way back in the afternoon, we have enough time to discover Zadar’s interesting historical centre and its three-thousand-year-old history.

6th Day (Thu) Obrovac  – Tulove grede – Sv.Rok – Obrovac (biking distance 56 km / 35 mi. & 1550 Hm / 5.085 ft. altitude difference)

Today’s programme makes us face the greatest challenge of our biking tour. After a substantial breakfast, we drive with the transfer vehicle as far as the small town of Obrovac at the Zrmanja River. After a short stretch of asphalt road, we turn and begin the 20 km-long-ascent. Arriving at an elevation of 1100 meters, we treat ourself to a well-deserved break with a great view onto continental and Mediterranean Croatia. The fresh mountain air will be pleasantly cool during the descent, and the next trails lead us along wooded paths into the milder regions of the Velebit Mountains and finally back to Obrovac. Late in the afternoon, we return tired but happy to Pakoštane.

We then continue on through the pristine countryside of the Velebit Nature Park. We take a short break near the village of Golubić, with a view of the canyon formed by the Krnyeza River. We soon reach a gravel trail and enjoy the downhill ride to Muškovci, where we cross the bridge across the Zrmanja River. For the afternoon, we recommend, as a special highlight, a rafting trip on the Zrmanja River, which we gladly organize for you (not included in the tour price).
