The most beautiful way to experience the landscape in its entirety is by walking and biking. To all adventurers and others who want to truly get to know its beauty, Dugi otok provides an opportunity to take a tour on arranged trekking and biking trails that stretch across the island.
The rugged landscape of Dugi otok will give walkers and cyclists an incredible view of the local waters of Zadar and the more demanding visitors will enjoy the more difficult routes which are spread across the island in countless combinations.
The experience will be complemented by the untouched nature as well as by picturesque villages that will be a welcoming resting-place for fans of more stronger, physical challenges.
Although the highest point above sea level of Dugi otok is only 338 m high, its geomorphologic features make it an ideal place for lovers of trekking and mountaineering. The landscape of Dugi otok is mostly mountainous and the combination of rocky and wooded areas makes it a special challenge. Therefore, the initiative for marking and registration of mountain tracks on Dugi otok started. One of these is the mountain track towards the Mount Orljak , 270 m of height, marked and registered with the Croatian Mountaineering Association. From the top of the hill you have a view overlooking the wide waters of Zadar, and the effort of climbing to the top will be justified.
