croatia cycling and wine tasting tour

dalmatian hinterland on 2 wheels

about jezero valley

In this cycling tour through Croatia, we visit its hinterland area. Jezero valley is situated just behind the hills over the Adriatic sea, near the cities of Ploče and Vrgorac. It’s a valley full of vineyards and a beautiful scenic landscape. It’s the largest vineyard in Croatia. A long time ago this whole valley was a big lake and that’s the reason why it’s called Jezero (meaning lake in Croatian). There is a river called Matica that flows through the Jezero valley and it was causing big floods and the formation of the large lake many years ago.
 
Some hundred years ago, a tunnel was dug and it started to take away flooded water into Bacina lakes and to the sea. You can find out more about this peculiar tunnel on our social networks. If you go on a Bacina lakes kayaking tour with us, there is a possibility to visit it and go through it since it’s not flooded in the summer months. The whole tunnel is 2 kilometers long and it’s a nice experience to walk through it.
 
Back to the Jezero valley. For a long time, it was touristically not exploited with people living here doing mostly agricultural work. In the last few years, the whole place began to ‘awake’ and attract more and more tourists. Many local wineries were opened in the villages and they started with wine tasting for the tourists. With all that started, we decided to start with our Croatia cycling and wine tasting tour and blended cycling and tasting of wine and other local products.
 

This tour is a must if you are a wine lover because we visit 2 wineries and try some of the best local Dalmatian wines and food. During the visit to the wineries, you’ll have a chance to buy some of the products they offer.
