A little bit of excercise pays back a bunch of good mood, so while on the happy island of Rab take a moment and go walk its lace of 200 km of promenades, hiking and mountaineering trails. Don’t fret, altitude are not that big and the climbs are rather mild, so even if you are not in top shape you should do fine.
Start with Premužićeva path 1. It is 8 kilometers long, running alongside the island ridge, from Lopar camp to the hamlet of Matići. Part of the path is sunny and another goes through the woods. Be warned that there are no water sources or restaurants, so bring your own food and water. Half way along the path you will find a hidden valley of Fruga. No bikes on this path please.
Premužićeva path 2 takes you from Kampor through the park forest Dundo all the way to the south coast of Kalifront and then on along the coast to Frkanj and bay of St. Euphemia. It is 15 kilometers long and mostly through the woods. There are some restaurants and bars along the way in the bay of Gožinka, should you need refreshments. This path is not suitable for biking.
Then there is 14 km long Rab - Maman path, starting from the Rab city walls along the St. Euphemia bay to Kampor, then take the gravel road to Dumići bay, along the coast to the islet of Maman. Most of the path is suitable for bikes as it wide enough and runs along the coast, but be warned that you can explore the islet of Maman only on foot or by boat. There are several bars and restaurants along the way and should you get tired you can catch a bus from Kampor or Dumići.
There are two wide and nicely paved walks, Rab to St. Euphemia, only 3 km long and Rab to Barbat, which is 8 km long. If you happen to be in Lopar, path along the Rajska beach is only 2 km long and beautiful just after sunrise.
Adventurers and trail blazers should take the 12 km long Mišnjak to Lopar trek, ideal for škraping (it is croatian for rock walking, as boulders of rock are called schkrape in the local lingo). Half way up, on top of Kamenjak (highest peak on the island) there is a tiny restaurant with a great view of the Velebit mountain to the east and bay of Kvarner to the west. You will just love it.
These are only just a few of available treks, so should you need more we recommend finding “Biking&trekking map of the island of Rab” at your local tourist bureau or your hotel’s reception.
