At the end of last year, the tourist boards from Croatia’s Pelješac peninsula united on the Pelješac Product Development project. The project will develop the outdoor offer, such as hiking, cycling and windsurfing, and will develop events in the form of five thematic festivals that would last a month each, in which visitors would enjoy the flavours of Pelješac, traditional dishes and Pelješac wine.
As part of the development of Outdoor Pelješac, an interactive map of mountain biking and hiking routes in Pelješac was made.
There are currently five circular mountain bike and six hiking routes on the map. Additional route extensions are planned, as well as the addition of hospitality facilities and wineries to the map so that guests can easily find their way around the area and get to know this offer of Pelješac.
Peljesac is rich in wineries and traditional konobas and restaurants, so the combination of outdoors and traditional flavours is natural.
On the map you can see information about the difficulty of the route, the type of surface, description, photos and you can download the GPX track that can be used in various mobile applications and smartwatches. There is also a link to the OsmAnd mobile app on the map, as a suggestion. Otherwise, the app is free to download and works offline.
In addition to tourist boards, local cyclists, Dalibor Jurović from the informal association Pelješac MTB Vibes and Roberto Pinčević, owner of the travel agency A.C.D.C – Soul of Croatia, also participated in the development of the interactive map. The development of a web application adapted to mobile devices was made by the company Visi Media d.o.o. from Split.
The map shows a total of five mountain bike circular routes which are 184 km long and six hiking routes with a total length of 39 km.

The Tourist Boards of Ston, Janjina, Trpanj and Orebić say that they have developed an interactive map that cyclists and mountaineers can study without coming to the info centre, or look on the websites of the tourist boards.
In addition, the trails are designed with local cyclists who know the terrain best, and thus end users will be able to discover the most interesting parts of Pelješac, which hides many natural beauties.
