Region of Šibenik – the best choice for hikers and cyclists

The mild climate gives you the opportunity to enjoy the landscape of our region at any time of year. Good news for all fans of cycling and hiking is the fact that the Šibenik area has more than 60 (approximately 400 km) of bike and walking paths, namely in the area of Šibenik, Zadar, Žirje, Vodice, Pirovac, Tribunj, National Park “Krka”, National Park “Kornati”, Skradin, Tisno, Grebaštica and Primošten.

Head out for a ride or a walk in the Dalmatian Zagora and discover the ancient fortress around the Krka River, stone houses and historical sites as Bribirska Glavica near town of Skradin, which keeps partly preserved walls from Illyrian times and the remains of Roman and early Croatian city; site of Burnum and preserved remains of a Roman camp near canyon of Krka, site of Danilo with the remains of prehistoric settlements, and the most prominent monument of Šibenik inland – Church of St. Salvation from the 9th century, known as the oldest Croatian church with preserved bell tower.

Discover the Dinara Mountain, where is situated the highest peak in Croatia at an altitude of 1831m, and enjoy gentle nature walks. Visit the historic towns of Knin and Drniš, their buildings and fortifications; a natural phenomenon – Krčić karst river which joins the river Krka, paths Vrana, Krka, or those in our islands. Take the educative hiking-ecological trail to visit Šibenik fortresses – it also offers a marvelous view of Šibenik and UNESCO cathedral of St. Jacob. Visit the gardens Jamnjak and Kamenar, as well as the Falconry centre in Dubrava, and when you want to take a rest, stop in one of our rural households and familiarize with the Dalmatian present way of life and the way it used to be, and enjoy delicious traditional specialties!
