TOUR de KONAvle has two optional itineraries, both of which take full advantage of scenic Konavle Valley and differ only in fitness level.
The first itinerary starts at historic Zvekovica Railway Station and proceeds through the picturesque Konavle Valley. We’ll ride through some fantastic wine yards, famous for the production of old Dubrovnik Malvasia and Merlot wines. Our bike tour then takes us to Pridvorje, an enchanting village amidst river and springs, poplars, plane-trees and mulberries. Pridvorje is famous for its pilgrimage sanctuary at Franciscan Monastery of St Blaise built in 1429. From Pridvorje our ride takes us to Konavoski dvori restaurant, after which we shall return to our stating point.
If you’re an experienced bicyclist who wants a bit of a challenge, our tour will not end at Konavoski Dvori but will go on, ascending to historic Soko Kula (Falcon Fortress) the largest and most important fortress from the times of Dubrovnik Republic. This magnificent fortress was built to adapt to the natural rock cliffs upon which it was constructed, for which reason the color of its stone blends in with its surroundings: a perfect place for a photo-stop before going back to our starting point.
For those bicyclists who want an easy/moderate bike tour, we offer an itinerary which starts and ends in Pridvorje and optionally includes a picnic at Pridvorje.
