New Herzegovina Ciro Trail, from Mostar to Dubrovnik
Whether you’re a cycling-enthusiast hunting for a hidden gem of a route, or a railway-aficiando passionate about charting old tracks, or a lover of soaring mountain greenery…then the Ciro Trail is for you.
This magical 100-mile three-day romp between the old town of Mostar in Bosnia and Herzegovina and Dubrovnik on the Croatian coast follows the old Austro-Hungarian railway line that once ran all the way to Vienna.
First skirts the Neretva River all the way from Mostar to Čapljina, sweeps through the epic Hutovo Blato Nature Park, the path then descends the Dinaric Alps through barren borderlands still riddled with mines from the Balkan War ending on the Croatian coast in Dubrovnik. Passing-by lofty monasteries and mountain watchtowers and passing-through viaducts and old railway tunnels, the path is mostly flat, traffic-free and well-signposted throughout.
Other potential highlights/stop-offs along this truly special adventure include the Vjetrenica caves, kayaking on Trebižat river (see more on our adventure tours), the stunning ancient hilltop fortifications of Počitelj, and the great wine cellars of Herzegovina.
Perhaps best of all, accommodation along the Ćiro trail comes in the form of beautifully converted old railway stations. This is a must-do trip!
