The island of Pag is the most indented island of the Adriatic, and also the island with the highest number of recognizable features. It is renowned for its lace, salt, cheese and lamb. In terms of relief and geology, Pag is a continuation of neighboring landmass. The eastern side of the island is higher and steeper, with pronounced rock faces that are completely bare and rugged. Pag is considered to be the barest island of the Adriatic, since as much as 86 percent of its surface is without vegetation cover. Wide rocky areas on the island are crisscrossed by a network of picturesque dry stone walls that once played an important role in livestock breeding and in protecting the soil against the bora wind. On the northern peak of the island, at the settlement of Lun, there are renowned olive groves of Lun with over 80,000 olive trees, including several trees over a thousand years old. Next to Metajna, we come across intriguing forms of stone and sandstone, shaped by sea, rain and wind. In Novalja, there are interesting remains of a Roman aqueduct, called Talijanova buža. The highest peak of the island is Sveti Vid, located in the center of the island. The landscape around the city of Pag is particularly picturesque, and the Pag saltworks are a very interesting site too.

The Blue Line of Via Dinarica starts from the cove of Tovarnele at the settlement of Lun in the northernmost part of the island, and then follows the route of the main island road across Novalja and towards the city of Pag. The route then continues across the bridge Paški most to the mainland. Therefore, this section of Via Dinarica is best explored by bicycle. Marked hiking trails exist in the area between Kolan and the city of Pag, in the zone around Sveti Vid, the highest peak of the island. However, it is worth bearing in mind that this area, just like most of the island, is actually a stone desert of sorts, without shade or drinking water. A particularly attractive part of the route is the section along the bay of Paški zaljev, passing through the city of Pag and next to the famous Pag saltworks. Below Sv. Vid – the highest peak of the island of Pag – Via Dinarica crosses the 15th meridian east.
