This is the main trail along the entire length of the Via Dinarica that follows the natural flow of the highest peaks of the Dinaric Alps. The White Trail includes all of the highest peaks in each respective country. Although there are a plethora of activities along this head trail, such as mountain biking and rafting, it’s main function is as a hiking trail.

Be patient, stage tour descriptions are coming soon!

This is the adventure of a life time, but get yourself prepared well in advance: Via Dinarica is more than a trail, and diversity is its second name ;-)

Hello dear hiking friends! Since a few days I'm back from my Via Dinarica tour. I agree totally with Bernat Robert. To anticipate: this way is NOT (!!!) in reality. The paths are either not available (I do not want to speak of signage) or so overgrown that a normal hiking is not possible. So PLEASE, PLEASE do NOT want to go this way - it just does NOT exist. I am a very experienced and very persistent walker and had my own difficulties with a GPS device (Garmin etrex 30x). Not infrequently, I felt lost. Yes, also with GPS device! The GPS route provided by some websites is NOT really !!! existent. I loaded the gpx file to my Garmin etrex 30x and had to realize on the first day that this is just a route created on the PC. No one has hiked in recent years. It may be that there were (some) these ways once, but today (in August 2019) just not anymore. I also did everything as video material as evidence. Who says anything else does not mean this trail. One can not imagine how disappointed and above all angry at the makers of this tour was / am. The trails are nonexistent. Here is advertised for something that does NOT exist. Imagine that hikers from Australia, New Zealand, Japan, the US ... get there, and realize on the first day that there is no such way. I do not want to imagine their disappointment not to speak of other emotions. These countries do not!? know hikers. They confuse hiker with immigrants. And immigrants consider them criminals. I was treated so permanently, even though I speak the local language. It sounds unbelievable, but I had to cancel my tour because I feared for my safety. TOTALLY NOT RECOMMENDED!!! Yours sincerely, Vladimir Mandić

I hiked approx 1/2 of the trail and I would not recommend hiking the whole trail as it's not maintained. Calling this a trail is possible probably only in Balkans. Slovenian part is no sense, a lot of dirt road. Croatian part.. I don't know where to start. It was an ice storm in Gorski kotar a couple of years ago and the existing "trail" is covered with fallen trees. Then a lot of dirt road, bush walking... You get an impression that nobody hiked there for ages. At the end of Velebit the trail stops (even thought you would thing, according to the gpx, that it continues to Gračac) due to landmines. Than Bosnian Prenj and Čvrsnica, again a lot of dirt road, some extremely steep paths that were unblocked only for the via Dinarica. So my advice, don't try to follow the trail; rathere choose some parts like Velebit, Dinara, Biokovo,Prenj, Čvrsnica, Maglić, Prokletije... You would barely find a mark that you are on via Dinarica indeed. Concluding, this is not a trail.

Thank you. I think that for me the biggest problem would be the lack of marking. Would it usefull use a tend to sleep?
