Transcroatia MTB Marathon is the longest and the most attractive bike marathon in Croatia. Starting at the Croatian westernmost point, in the city of Umag, you will enjoy the Istria peninsula in its absolute Tuscany-like beauty before traversing the mesmerizing mountain of Učka and arriving at the National Park Risnjak on the other side. Once you go further east, to the region of Gorski Kotar you slowly start making your way to Croatia’s wildest and longest mountain range Velebit.
Detached from civilization and immersed into unspoiled nature, you’ll realize that this ride was one of the best decisions you’ve ever made. After Velebit’s magnificent views you descend to a third National park on your way, NP Krka, and finally, enjoy some gentle paths by the Lake Vrana. Not before long, you will find yourself on the Adriatic Seashore for a well-deserved dip.
Transcroatia MTB marathon is 750 kilometers long with tough 20 000 meters of elevation. It will surely push your limits, but the views will be spectacular from the first to the very last kilometer. This project was brewing for a while, and now the time has come to release it into the world. Stay tuned for more details of a bikepacking adventure for your memoirs.
