Velebit is Croatia’s sacred mountain and in Croatian folklore it is a home to mythical fairies – the Vila – described as being a good spirit.

Dabarski Kukovi are steep ridges in the middle of the Velebit range and they are our destination today. Local people gave it a name and it means massive rocks. Our adventure starts in Gospić or Otočac, it’s up to you. Both towns are on the main road to the south of Croatia. To get to the mountain, we pass small villages using quiet local roads where a lot of local people sell their homemade products. A start point to our adventure is at an altitude of 1400 m a. s. l. where we hop on our bikes and start our mountain adventure. Dense forest, rocks, springs with drinking water and amazing view enrich this interesting adventure. Everything will pay off once we reach our end point where our host Mile will treat us with traditional specialities.
