What to Expect


The Aromatic Cycling trail, in its length of 200 km, takes us over asphalted and macadam sections, where you drive to the Blidinje Nature Park on a macadam part of the trail that has a lot of climbs, but is very well paved and does not pose a problem for driving. As part of this section is driven through uninhabited areas, we recommend that you stock up on sufficient amounts of water in local villages and towns. We always believe that on longer rides it is necessary to bring a mini tool and a tool for patching inner tires, so the rule also applies to this section. We definitely recommend that you inform your family or friends about your cycling plans before going for a ride.
Helmet mandatory!
