Cycling Paklenica National Park
Take a bike and explore the surrounding beaches
Cycling Paklenica National Park is the best way to explore the Paklenica area. We start from the Hotel Vicko and bike through small villages under the mountain. The road take us to the entrance of the national park. From where we take a walk to the archaeological site of Paklarić fort. Since that is where the prehistoric and medieval ceramics were discovered. In addition to enjoying the fort itself, just standing on it, you can enjoy a magnificent view of the Paklenica Riviera. We follow an educational trail, that leads us through old villages all the way to Reljan village. The educational trail called “a short journey through history” is part of a pedestrian and bike trail.
Cycling journey through history
Therefore, it’s equipped with five informative panels presenting the history of the area from prehistoric times to the present day. Due to the nature of the trail we will be careful regarding pedestrians we encounter. On the way, back to Starigrad, we will also use small roads to enjoy the view. There will be time for swimming and relaxing on one of the beaches while cycling Paklenica National Park route. Basic cycling experience is needed. Children from 12 years of age and older, accompanied by parents, can participate. We use professional KONA bicycles, and each group gets a trained guide. You will get a helmet, a bicycle and safety instructions. Extra gear and tools are provided. Shorts or a bathing suit, a T-shirt and sport shoes are all you need to wear. Don’t forget your sun cream, water and picnic.
