Nature Park Biokovo Reviews

Every 300 meters are bays that can be used. The panorama was breathtaking. Seeing nature untouched was enormous. The view at the summit was great! We had clear weather and could look very far into the distance. Halfway you can walk for about 20 minutes and look down on Makarska. On the way back we had to stop for 2 minutes, because horses blocked the road. The horses are native there and run around freely. Cars don't bother the horses at all. But they don't hurry to run. The tour is definitely highly recommended.
Biokovo i sama cesta do vrha Sv. Jure je fantastično i zadivljujuče!!! Topla preporuka svima da vide i uživaju u netaknutoj prirodi, svježem zraku i najvišoj planini u Dalmaciji kao i najvišoj cesti u... more »Bioxin and all the way to the top of St. Chase is fantastic and stunning yesterday!!! The warm recommendation to everyone to see and enjoy intact nature, the fresh air and the highest mountain in Dalmatia and the highest road in Croatia.
Took an organised trip to to the top - brilliant
Amazing It is sometimes referred to as Bijakova, especially among inhabitants of the eastern side of the mountain. Its highest peak is Sveti Jure (Saint George), at 1762 m.a.s.l. It shows a typical karstlandscape. Atop the peak there is a powerful FM and DVB-T transmitter. The 196 km2 of its area is protected as a nature parkwith over 1,500 plant and animal species, some of which are endemic. Biokovo is one in a line of Dinaric Alps stretching along the Dalmatian coast - northwest of it is Mosorand southeast are Sutvid and Rilić. To the east, the Šibenik runs in parallel. When the weather is very clear, from the top of Biokovo it is possible to see Monte Gargano in Italy, which is 252 km (157 mi) away. Zabiokovlje, a mountainous area in Biokovo, includes such townlets and villages as Gornja Brela, Zadvarje, Žeževica, Grabovac, Rastovac, Zagvozd, Župa, Rašćane and Kozica. Major economic activities there were cattle raising, grape growing, and hunting. Part of this area is in the Biokovo Nature Park. To aid hikers, the Biokovo Nature Park Visitor Center is in downtown Makarska. However, Biokovo can be perilous if hiking unprepared - tourists erroneously imagine peaks to be closer than they are and, oblivious to the danger, have been known to go hiking wearing flip-flops, without water, wearing shirts with military camouflage patterns making them harder to spot for search and rescue teams. From 1976-2007, 24 hikers have died on Biokovo, while 37 had to be rescued.
