Mate globtrotter

Route Description

Embark on an adventure and follow the path of one of the greatest globetrotters of all time, Mate Svjetski, a native of Vrgor who at the beginning of the 20th century discovered the world on his own in 19 years of uninterrupted travel, covering over 360,000 kilometers on five continents. Extremely demanding mountain bike road trail 51 km long leads you from Vrgorac to Prapatnice and Matina’s native Style, from which he set off on his life adventure. Take a look at one of the largest necropolises of stećak tombstones in Stilje, and then dive into the breath of the mountain. After a demanding ascent, refresh yourself with mountain air at the Milina zasida lookout point, where the view of Imotski’s Blue and Red Lakes can be seen from 920 meters above sea level. This ended an 18-kilometer hard ascent, and as a reward, about 30 kilometers of easy descent through the cultivated dolce and clearings of Kozičke Poljice and fantastic Zabiokovo views of the hills Šibenik and Mihovil. After passing through the village of Kozica, the trail connects with the old Napoleon Road. With that, you rounded off the mountainous part of Vrgorac Krajina and reached Vrgorac again.
