Istria Walking Holiday



Walking holiday in Croatia with 6 walking tours around the magical Istrian peninsula. Experience Istria with all senses in their truest form and enjoy our walking tour on six different and beautiful walking trails.

From the Adriatic Coast, a lush, green landscape of rolling hills rises to the rugged peaks of the Ucka Mountains – It is Istria. A large peninsula in the north of Croatia, Istria is famous for its fertile landscapes, ancient towns and excellent local food and wine. On this week long walking holiday, discover the Venetian styled village of Motovun with its striking hilltop setting, surrounded by vineyards and truffle forests. Explore Brijuni National Park where ancient pine forests meet with the azure coastal waters and the Ucka Nature Park.

Istria – It’s often called Croatia’s Tuscany! 

The beautiful coastal part of Istria with numerous beaches and untouched inland with rich history and with local produce are one of the reasons why Istria is ideal to escape from everyday life by riding bike. Here people loves truffly pasta dishes and has a wine obsession. Istrian trails with famous Parenzana roads are even better than Istrian beaches. Running along Istria’s many brails is an ideal way to get an up close and personal view of the magic peninsula of most west part of Croatia
