The excursion starts at the village Gruda in Konavle. We take our bikes to the small village roads that run across the lively Konavle region. The trail takes us through orchards, cornfields, vineyards, blueberry fields… We also cross the bridges of Ljuta and Konavočica rivers. The main route is easy to cycle on, quite flat with just few short climbs. More experience cyclists can arrange more challenging route with their tour guide upon meeting.
Occasional short breaks are made for being acquainted with the historical and natural characteristics of the Konavle region (like visit to Franciscan monastery, old mill in Ljuta village, and waterfalls of river Ljuta). During our breaks, we will refresh ourselves with snack and water.
Taking small village roads, we return to Gruda at Dubrovnik wine cellars, where guests can taste and buy famous wines produced from local grapes.
