When was the last time you visited Blidinje? The mountain plateau between Čvrsnica and Vran, accessible by asphalt roads from Jablanica, from Posušje, from Tomislavgrad... or from Mostar via Goranci and Bogodol, if, like us, you are looking for that feeling and spirit of mountain biking. Let's add to that the beautiful views of Blidinjsko polje and the lake, an excursion center with all the facilities you can find from walking, cycling, hiking to the endless pleasure of excellent food. A ride that must definitely be included in the annual calendar of every cyclist.

When praising their area, Herzegovinians often point out the proximity to the sea and the warm climate. Just shyly, they also touch the high mountains of Herzegovina, and we can freely say that they are especially beautiful in every season. At any time we can find something beautiful and enchanting, something for everyone. Ideal for escaping the summer heat for which Herzegovina is famous...so let's go on an adventure!

In the embrace of the spacious and picturesque areas of the mountains of Čvrsnica, Čabulje and Vrana, one of the most important nature reserves of Bosnia and Herzegovina is located - We are taking you to the Blidinje Nature Park.

GENERAL ABOUT BLIDINJE NATURE PARK

Blidinje Nature Park is one of the most beautiful natural areas in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and this beautiful gem of Herzegovina should be on your travel list. About 360 km2 of this incredibly rich and biologically diverse park lies in the heart of the Dinaric Mountains in the northern part of Herzegovina. Almost half of the Park is covered with forest, and due to its rich biodiversity, the entire area was recognized and protected as a Nature Park in 1995.

The main motives for establishing the Blidinje Nature Park are found in the multitude of endemic plants, in the variety of animal life that inhabits beautiful forests, steep cliffs, deep ravines, living undisturbed and developing according to natural laws, far from the influence of man.

Why visit Blidinje?

The forest landscape, long pastures, clear lake, clean air and numerous archaeological sites are just some of the reasons, which are certainly more than enough to visit this unique nature reserve. But Blidinje offers much more - something for everyone.

The most famous sights of the park by the lake are the rich archaeological sites, and the necropolis with 150 stećaks in Dugi polje, which in January 2004 received the status of National Monument of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Among the cultural sites, the Franciscan monastery, which is located at the foot of Pločno peak in the town of Masna Luka, is also worth mentioning, which also houses an art gallery. Worth mentioning is the massif of Čvrsnica, and as a special geomorphological reserve Diva Grabovica, which includes the canyon of the river Grabovica within the framework of the beautiful whole.

This tour is perfect for all those who want to get to know the beautiful landscapes of the Blidinje Nature Park and the rich history of this region, but want to combine it with the adventurous element of cycling.

Tour Details

In this tour, we take you from Mostar to the Blidinje Nature Park, more precisely to the administrative building of PP Blidinje, where you can get information about Blidinje, as well as recommendations for accommodation and a good bench.

The first part of this route is an asphalt surface, more precisely to the town of Bogodol. We ride on an asphalt surface for about 25 km, and then we descend on macadam, which will be enjoyed by all lovers of mountain biking, and which follows us all the way to the Blidinje Nature Park. Also, it is important to say that the first part of the ascent is quite difficult, especially the first 5 km, and then the slope slowly becomes bearable with some 5% ascent in the length of 11 km, i.e. all the way to Gorani, when we come to the beautiful plateau that is regularly visited by many Mostar residents on weekends in search of rest and a natural oasis that relaxes and recharges batteries. From Goranec, we continue cycling on the asphalt surface, passing the mountain lodge on Bogodolo, and a few kilometers after the lodge, we descend on the macadam surface.

The macadam section is not overly demanding, but it requires a certain physical fitness to be able to cycle 30 km with constant ups and downs. But it is certain that you will be dazzled by the beauty of this region, so that you will not even feel tired, cycling in the desire to discover a new and breathtaking sight. This way you can also reach Široki brijeg, where there are two places where you can turn left, so if you are persistent in your desire to reach Blidinja, keep to the right and follow your GPX record that we provide you in this article and you can download it for free to your navigation device.

Upon arrival at the Blidinje Nature Park, you will first notice the Blidinj Lake, followed by numerous natural sights that will take your breath away. You continue your drive on the right side of Blidinje lake until you reach the administrative building of the Blidinje Nature Park, where you can spend the night and continue your journey tomorrow.

What to Expect

RECOMMENDATION

Although the trail mostly takes us through populated areas and you drive on an asphalt section, we also come across a macadam section of the trail, while we always think 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!
