What is VIA APSYRTIDES?

The marking of the island’s historical trails with a specially designed sign consisting of stylized letters V and A, which is an abbreviation for Via Apsyrtides, has begun. The Cres-Lošinj archipelago was called Apsyrtides in ancient times, so the name was chosen for the transversal that will stretch from the northernmost point of the island of Cres, Cape Jablanac, all the way to Cape Radovan, the southernmost point of the island of Ilovik. A 75 km long network of historical educational trails, developed and arranged by the City of Cres as part of the European VALUE project, is connected to this transversal.

This tourist product will connect the far north and south of the Cres-Lošinj archipelago, and offer visitors a handful of interesting information about the island’s heritage, history and biodiversity, thus laying the foundations for tourism development along the entire route, especially outside the summer season. The local service trade “Xplore Cres” has been hired for the marking job, which, in cooperation with authorized markers, marks the roads according to the standards of the Croatian Mountaineering Association.

Amazing hike! I only had time for the first 4 stages but I loved it. My dog Maka was also with me and I recommend this hike for hikers with dogs. Just have them on leash around sheeps!

I only did Osoršćica hike but I saw the VA signs and was intrigued. Now I found this page and I am coming back to do the whole hike!
