With an elevation of 1762 meters (5780 feet) at Sveti Jure, the tallest peak, Biokovo checks in as the second highest mountain range in Croatia. As you'd expect, the park offers a plethora of fantastic hiking options, varying in difficulty from easy walks to strenuous 8-hour odysseys; and since camping is not allowed (except in rare, specialized circumstances), you don't need to worry about lugging a multiple day pack with you. Just come prepared for thirst, climate and elevation changes and things should go off without a hitch. We suggest finding your way to Crveno Jezero (Red Lake), which is a beautiful, natural basin northwest of Imotski town; then again, you could climb Stropac or any of the other peaks nearest the coast for a breathtaking view of the ocean. Best of all, these activities can be found about 60 kilometers (37 miles) from Split, making it perfect for a one or two day trip.
Note:If you're just looking to get the top of the range without much effort, there are roads up Sveti Jure to the tv tower at its summit. The view is the same, while the sense of accomplishment will probably be lacking.
