BIOGRADSKA GORA NATIONAL PARK
Passing through the virgin forest where the height of some trees reaches up to 50 meters, we need 30 minutes of ride to arrive at Biogradska Gora National Park. It has in its heart a beautiful glacier lake known as Biogradsko Lake, which is surrounded by mountain peaks. Three of them are above 2000 meters in altitude.
