If you're one for hiking then you're certainly going to be given an amazing view from this mountain. When we went it was far too hot to be considering any kind of hike but it was a wonderful thing to see from our apartment window.

We rented scooters for a 4-hour-trip from Makarska to the highest top of Biokovo, Sveti Jure. Scooter is absolutely the easiest and funniest way to reach the top and the national park in general. I know the videos from the narrow mountain roads are pure...More

We reached the top of the mountain by scooter. It went a little slow in some steep places, but we managed it. It is so worth visiting. The views are breathtaking. It was a little cold. The entrance costs 50 kn/pers, if with motorised vehicle.

We took a tour by Exploro up the mountain. The road is very narrow and twisty and you are overlooking the edge of the road, which was a bit scary. Well worth it though, the views are amazing. We stopped half way up for photos...More

It is a 23km drive from the ticket office to the communication station and small church at the top of the hill. The road is very narrow in some places with vertiginous drops and is very twisty. The driving per se is not a problem...More

Me and my wife hiked up to Vosac peak then walked something about 2 km to paragliding spot and then walked down to botanic garden. It took us about 8 hours to complete the route, but it worthed every second.

And on the way back enjoy the sweetest descent on perfectly paved roads with the most stunning views. While the tall range makes for an early sunset, it seems to protect with a warm embrace the town and provide the most dramatic backdrop to the...More

Greetings guys In the upcoming may, i m planning to hire a car and visit Biokovo mountain and pass by Staza viewpoint and Sv. Jure . but I saw some reviews online saying that there are some dangerous snakes over there and that the road is very tiny ,dangerous, and that I have to do a lot of reversing to make space for upcoming cars to pass. So this made me think again of not going.. I actually drove before in some highlands but with better sized roads in Italy, Austria and Switzerland. ...More
