Plav Cultural Route by Bike

Once you have explored all the wonderful mountain bike trails offered in Plav area, a real treat that awaits you is exploring Plav cultural route and getting to know the cultural heritage of this region. In 55 kilometers of this tour that covers both banks Plavsko lake, Ljuca and Lim rivers, you will meet with different cultures, stories and legends. Packed with contrast, woven for centuries near the largest glacier lake of Prokletije, the history of this region cannot leave you indifferent. And all these contrasts, at the end of the trip will melt together into just one picture – the portrait of an ordinary man who valiantly fought throughout history with harsh mountains that surround it, in order to survive and feed his family.

 When we add to this tour the excellent taste of traditional cuisine, which is still only timidly presented on the tables of local restaurants, and the best of things are still in some forgotten old recipes and still waiting for their culinary valorization, then you must be clear what kind of relaxing cycling treat we are talking about.

This route is a combination of several local, marked biking trails and it is not too physically demanding. It passes through inhabited area, and the only wilderness (conditionally speaking) on this trail is the section between Novsice and Skic. That section is also the only unpaved part of the route. For easier orientation, we suggest that you take our GPS tracklog or simply use our site as navigator.
