We are in the shoulder season.. and the sportsmen and women of Europe have arrived!
Bicyclists from the Czech Republic.. lots of international tourists of all ages who want to take advantage of the cooler – than – summer weather to ride along bike trails, visit national parks, try their hand at kayaking, and just investigate Dalmatia.
On May 1st there will be a bike marathon held in nearby Pakostane.
All around Lake Vrana (Vransko Jezero in Croatian) there are 14 km of bike trails – some are dirt trails, well worn with lots of usage, others are paved. Many visitors from northern European countries come here in groups to train and enjoy the first sneak preview of Spring.
A local bike course.. with a special race just for kids 🙂
(only 300 entries left..) For more serious runners, this race is held internationally on May 8th, in order to raise funds for handicapped people all over the world. Click on the link for more details!
As you can tell by the shade of blue hues in the water behind us, the natural beauty here is uncommonly beautiful.
With a few long weekends in store try to get some time to enjoy it before the crowds arrive. For example, May 1 is European “labor day”, May 26th is a Catholic holiday (Tijelovo, or Corpus Christi) as well as two bonus days in June – both 22nd and 25th are national holidays. Combine it with a day off, and try to create a mini vacation in this exceptional season (which many prefer to the summer crowds!)
I like to reccomend my friend Natasha’s super agency if you get the urge to book or want to just get more information.. Val Tours Biograd
Let’s put on some good quality tennies and Walk around the Clock!
