Cycling Plitvice Area
Away from traffic, you can enjoy natural beauties, passing rolling hills, and villages to Barac Caves. Our country is a speleological El Dorado. Not many countries in the world have so many surfaces covered in karst. Over fifty percent of Croatian territory, even seventy percent if we include the undersea surface area, is made of limestone. According to the local legend, the caves were named after someone named Barać who defeated the furious Turkish giant on the battlefield and earned himself such honor. We know that there are three caves. We will visit the only one which is open to visitors. Visitors center SPLELEON has an Atrium with hyperrealistic animals with fossil remains of animals from the Ice Age, found in Baraceva Cave, which will take you back tens of thousands of years, to the time when lions, hyenas, woolly rhinoceroses, and other large animals lived in our area.

It is an amazing place with a great picnic spot plus clean fresh water. Be aware that it’s cold inside even in summer and you should bring a long sleeve. You will walk through big halls above the black pitch with a guided expert for this cave. On the way back during our cycling Plitvice Valley experience, the route will take you to Old Drežnik Town. So, there we visit the remains of the fortress and tower from 17ct. The tower stands on the canyon of Korana River and your route takes you for a few kilometers on a gravel trail. This Cycling Plitvice Valley route is a good combination of easy and moderate as you can always take shortcuts.

Frequently asked questions

Money or credit card for cave tickets. Maybe also beer money, more for your lunch (next to bike rent is a grocery shop and restaurant, but also will be on your biking routes). The clothes you will ride in shorts, a sports top and flat trainers are ideal if you don’t have bike-specific clothes.
