Fodor's Expert Review Vidova Gora

Brač Mountain
Free

The village of Bol is backed by the highest peak on all the Croatian islands, Vidova Gora. From here, at a height of 2,552 feet above sea level, the Adriatic Sea and the islands of Hvar and Vis spread out before you like a map. It's possible to reach the top following a clearly marked footpath from Bol, but be sure to wear good hiking boots, take plenty of water, and expect to walk at least two and a half hours to reach the summit. Alternatively, rent a mountain bike from Big Blue and cycle up—note that you need to be pretty fit to face the challenge. If you have a headlamp and are relatively fit, wake early and hike up before sunrise, or go in the late afternoon and watch the sun set from Croatia's highest island peak.
