It is not only in the water where outdoor sports can be experienced in Croatia. Because of the well-sculpted land, you may also enjoy the thrill of riding a two-wheeled vehicle.

The bicycle route varies depending on the level of difficulty for riders.
Croatia is not only abundant in water but mountains as well. It caters climbing routes from the traditional multi-pitch to the extreme sport climbing. Its glorious rocks and limestone is the dream for every climber to reach. Winter and autumn seasons are not the advisable times for hiking. The passing hard bora-wind makes the mountains extremely difficult to climb. The most special climbing spot is the Vela Draga where unique amalgamation of water and wind creates distinctive rock formations.
