September the 30th, 2020 – When it comes to cycling, walking, mountaineering and hiking in Croatia, the possibilities are endless thanks to the extremely diverse terrain in such a small geographical area. Peljesac might be best known for its abundance of wildly popular wines and its picturesque vineyards descending down its rugged hills, but there is another attraction – the very many Peljesac cycling and hiking routes.

The Peljesac peninsula is ideally placed, especially when it comes to tourists staying in Dubrovnik who might want a break from the hustle and bustle of the small Medieval walled city in the height of summer. Getting back to nature is important for both physical and mental health, and Peljesac cycling paths are an ideal place to visit when you need to blow off the cobwebs while being surrounded by beauty on all sides. Whether it’s hiking, walking, cycling or tackling mountains that is your thing, this region of Dalmatia should definitely be on your list of places to go.

As Morski writes on the 29th of September, 2020, Dubrovnik-Neretva County, through the Ministry of Tourism, provided co-financing for the project of renovating and properly laying out the Peljesac cycling and hiking paths in the area of the popular municipalities of Orebic and Trpanj.

The project will arrange and mark over 40 kilometres of macadam paths and build four new lookouts along the Peljesac cycling and hiking routes. The works are being carried out within the Cyclotourism Development Programme in the wider area of Dubrovnik-Neretva County. The total value of the works of this project stand at 602,000 kuna, and the works on its realisation have already started. Within the project, the county will participate with as much as 202,000 kuna, the Municipality of Orebic will throw in  340,000 kuna, and the Municipality of Trpanj will volunteer 60,000 kuna of its own funds.

The works on the Peljesac cycling and hiking routes should be completed by December this year, which will further enrich the tourist offer in this part of Dalmatia, which is otherwise, as mentioned, already well known for its rich active tourism offer.
