Discover Dalmatia following the narrow and abandoned paths, overgrown brooks, climb to the deserted villages where yesterday people lived. Get know by bike all unhidden beauty of the life which is disappearing slowly and giving place to the urban circumstances and a new-coming time.
Inspired with these needs for active tourism hotel «Prvan» organizes for the groups of 8-10 tourists with bikes an unusual experience. Biking through the places where time has stopped, where the real and healthy life still exists, where the air is still full of smell of rosemary, heathhear and sage will make you be born again.
