Active tourism


Spectacular view from 1762 metres alltitude

Biokovo mountain has a long tradition of active tourism and the maintenance of various sports facilities. Biokovo road, 23 kilometers long, leads through the green pine forest and ends at the top of St. George (Jure) (1762 m) which offers an incredible view of Makarska coastline, islands and Zabiokovlje (hinterland).

In addition to the road, there is an immense series of hiking trails and paths from Baška Voda, Zagvozd, Brela, Podgora amongst others, which follow the historic Austro-Hungarian Empire and Napoleonic roads. However, the potential of Biokovo has been recognized by international professional athletes: the Slovakian cycling team selected this massive mountain as its training site.
