A ride through Hvar’s landscapes and ancient settlements will take you back in time
Hvar’s picturesque landscapes and ancient settlements entice visitors to short and long distance rides on many of the island’s bicycle trails and routes. Riders come to Hvar to ride hills etched with ancient trails and craggy hillsides that crisscross the island, traversing the island’s mountain ridge and descending to the island’s northern and southern sunbaked coast to feast their senses with more than adventure.
From the sea coves and bays of Jelsa, your bicycle journey will take you across pine forests and terraced slopes to remote hillside villages and sprawling vineyards, delivering astonishing Mediterranean views and a ride past well preserved rural architecture.
Take a ride to the 17th century village of Humac and descend into Grapčeva cave to inspect the oldest drawing discovered in Europe, from 4,000 B.C. Or take a ride along gridded plots of olive groves wedged between Jelsa and the island’s mountain ridge to stonewashed villages of Vrsnik, Pitve and Svirče for a tavern lunch or a roadside picnic under a canopy of olive trees. A ride to the ancient Stari Grad town will take you back in time amid prehistoric and ancient buildings of the Stari Grad Plain!
