This roughly 1,300-km long trail is all about exploring what has been there for millennia, almost untouched by human hand. The cross-cultural trip along the Via Dinarica connects all countries of ex-Yugoslavia using old shepherd paths, ancient war routes, long-established trails, and some brand new ones. The area is filled with villages, stone fortresses, rich history, wildlife, and unique communities. White Trail—the most popular option for segment hiking—starts in Slovenia and summits the highest peak in each country all the way to Albania! There are also many day hikes available as well. You can find challenging ascents with spectacular panoramic views all along the Croatian coast, and some of the most accessible routes begin in the Sinj area. Sinjal (1,831 m) is the highest peak in Croatia overlooking Peruča lake, Kijevski Kozjak, Svilaja, and Troglav—another peak with a small curved plateau at the top. Dinara is also a wild mountain—if you’re lucky, you’ll spot all kinds of animals, from wolves and jackals to lynx, wild boar, and deer! Find out more about hiking the untouched nature of the via Dinarica from Ante Romac—local Croatian hiker and owner of Dinaric Guides.
