Lake Vrana Cycling Trail Total score -
There are cycling trails covering more than 40 km around Lake Vrana which vary according to level of difficulty as well as the scenery.
The most common starting point on the cycling trail around Lake Vrana is by the local Church in Vrana. The trail continues to climb up to Majdan Hill from where there is a view of the entire Ornithological Reserve and then continues in a south-east direction. This is a particularly attractive area, but also quite a challenging portion of the trail and best chosen by those in good shape. Be sure to have a good supply of water with you, because the nearest shop is in Prosika on the opposite side of the lake. If you have the time and the energy, you should definitely visit Kamenjak Viewpoint which is situated just above the half-way mark around the lake and offers a fantastic view of the entire Lake Vrana, of the islands of Pašman and Murter as well as the islands of Kornati National Park. Near the end of the northern part of the shore is the Živača Fishing Cottage where you can take a rest on wooden benches or play a round of bowling. The trail along the eastern shore of the lake, which leads to Prosika, is short and passes by the Babin škoj peninsula. There are remains of a Liburnian fortress and Venetian watchtower at Babin škoj. You can have another rest in Prosika, along the canal that connects Lake Vrana to the sea. After Prosika the trail briefly follows the main coastal road (works are underway to reroute this portion of the trail to enable enjoyment of the scenery unhindered by automobile traffic). The end of the trail that leads to a campground is mostly flat and less strenuous for cycling. (Source: Lake Vrana Nature Park)
