Bike Tour of Lost Cities

The bike tour of Pašman and Ugljan leads you up seaside paths to hilltop vistas. Observe the beauty and tranquillity of medieval monasteries, ride across the bridge which links the two islands together over a navigable channel toward the Kornati Islands, and along dry-stone walls and ancient olive groves, to the ornithological Vransko Lake Nature Reserve. Pass along the remains of Roman, Middle Age and Ottoman periods on the way to the Kamenjak hilltop where you can look at the latticework of a hundred different islands. Cycling through olive groves and vineyards will lead you to wine cellars, and the sampling of olive oil and wine together with the pride of local cuisine – prosciutto and cheese. At the Benković Castle in Benkovac you can see the only example of a three-barrelled cannon created according to designs by Leonardo da Vinci. Visit the Illyrian remains at Asseria and tour the traditional rural farm Ražnjevića Dvori where you will be delighted by traditional meals cooked under a “bell” (“peka”) inside a tavern dating from the 16th century.
