Take an opportunity for an active vacation and discover western part of Papuk mountain.
What to expect?
The, yet, unknown mountain Papuk has challenging slopes perfectly suitable for MTB riding, slight hilly landscape, and clean macadam roads accompanied by interesting attractions.
Since we love #local, our meeting point is at the Kovačević Winery where we chat next to cup of morning coffee, tea, and homemade apple strudel. After short instructions by your guide, we start to cycle. At the beginning of the tour, we pass by the picturesque appearance of Daruvar town center and passing through the shade of the Roman park-forest and the most beautiful spa park in Croatia called Julijev Park. Following the road, we are expecting a combination of asphalt and macadam with challenging (shorter) ascents and downhills all the way to the village Vrbovac, Ječmenice to the place called Markovac. We´ll take a break at the Spring route cycling resting place from which we usually enjoy in the viewpoint on surrounding mountains and villages.
We pass through rural settlements through Pakrane place, and arrive in Sirač. The municipality of Sirač is known for the remains of the Old Town fortress and the exploitation of mineral resources. From the center, we will walk to the Fortres, rest for a while, and then continue our cycling towards Doljani place where, just before the final destination, the trail treats us with a well-deserved downhill ride and a beautiful view of Daruvar town.
