When it comes to hiking, it is important to point out that all climbs are long and hard, mostly exposed to sun, so climbing campaigns should start at early dawn. It is also important to note that climbs in unfavorable weather conditions (fog, bora wind, snow) should definitely be avoided due to difficult terrain. If you are preparing to visit Biokovo, do not forget that a one-day summer tour of the mountain requires at least 3 to 5 liters of fluid. In hiking along Biokovo, it is necessary to use a map, since wandering can be deadly. As a warning, let us also mention that Biokovo is the mountain with the highest number of recorded accidents. The reason is that many tourists, including hikers, go to the mountain with insufficient drinking water supplies and inappropriately equipped, underestimating the length and the demanding nature of climbs exposed to the sun, as well as dangers that can stem from aimless wandering through karst terrain that is quite challenging in terms of orientation.
Via Dinarica crosses Biokovo by fully following the Biokovo Hiking Trail (Biokovska planinarska staza, BPS). The trail begins from the presentation center of the Biokovo Nature Park in Gornja Brela. A longitudinal tour of this trail is an extraordinarily interesting, but also a very demanding hiking adventure, and crossing the entire section "in one go" is also colloquially known as the "Biokovo Wolf". The section of Via Dinarica leading across Biokovo is the most demanding section of the Blue Line, as it takes hikers through uninhabited area and along very difficult terrain.
